Hokkien mee is a Southeast Asian dish that has its origins in the cuisine of China’s Fujian (Hokkien) province. There are three distinct types of Hokkien mee found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Hokkien char mee, which is more common in central Peninsular Malaysia and particularly the Klang Valley, was originally developed in Kuala Lumpur. By default in the Klang Valley, the term Hokkien mee refers to this darker, stir-fried variant.
