When I was living in KL in the early 2000s, one of my favourite places to bring guests was Green View Restaurant near SS2 on Petaling Jaya for their signature sang har meen 生虾面.

Stopping over at KL on the way to Ipoh, we decided to have dinner at Green View. This was my first revisit after more than 10 years. I was curious if their famous sang har meen was still as good.

Externally, Green View hasn't changed much at all - it's still the same old school Chinese restaurant / banquet hall. Some of the middle aged wait staff in old style black vests and white shirts have been with Green View for decades, providing old fashioned personable service. Inside Green View's kitchen too, it had been the same crew for the last two decades.

Two of us, we had a large river prawn each. The prawns halved came on a flat wiry bed of fried wanton mee and smothered with a thick yellow-brown sauce.

The meaty large river prawns were fresh (though not live).

The large river prawns had a nice light springy crunch to the bite like less dense lobster meat. The prawn meat had a subtle clean tasting sweetness. It was lovely, I liked this even better than the famous live large river prawns at Tanjung Tualang (near Ipoh).

The fried wanton noodles had a mild savoury sweet taste, layered with a crustacean savoury sweetness from prawn head juices dissolved into the egg thicken brown sauce. The fried noodles were soften by the sauce but still had a bit of residual crispness. I like this uniquely tasty combination of textures and flavours.

👍 At nearly RM200 for two prawns, 长青海鲜饭店 Green View's large prawn sang har meen 生虾面 is admittedly rather expensive. But, it is special and worth digging deeper into the pocket for an occasional fix. I felt a craving for it even as I wrote this post 😋


Please recommend me other excellent sang har meen places 🦐

Fun fact: The organs inside the prawn's head is often referred as "prawn roe". Actually, the female prawn carries her roe outside her body between her legs. What we often call "prawn roe" in the prawn head is in fact its internal organs like stomach, pancreas, etc.
