Ten Hup Chee Cheong Fun: 3rd gen HK-style chee cheong fun is a hidden gem in Kajang

When it comes to food in Kajang, our minds usually strays to satay but unbeknownst to many Klang Valley-ians, Kajang is secretly a food haven of its own. Dismissed due to its distance, Kajang holds many secrets of its own and we uncovered one of them; authentic Hk-style chee cheong fun!

Ten Hup Chee Cheong Fun is a 3rd generation chee cheong fun stall run by a humble family with one goal in mind— yummy chee cheong fun! Located near the Kajang market with an astounding view of the Kajang River (if pollution is your thing), this stall has been a crowd favourite for years.

Despite its humble size, the stall was packed with patrons dining in and tapau-ing their food. Thankfully, I managed to squeeze in a tiny spot for myself.

What I tried at Ten Hup

Owing to the crowd, I had to wait around 20 minutes for my plate of chee cheong fun. You get to choose from 3 options of chee cheong fun: Prawn Chee Cheong Fun (RM9), Shrimp Chee Cheong Fun (RM8) or the Mixed Chee Cheong Fun (RM10).

Ten Hup - Mixed Chee Cheong Fun

To get the best of both worlds, I ordered the Mixed Chee Cheong Fun and a cup of Kopi Peng (RM2.80). To my surprise, this neat little breakfast stall also offers a variety of other dishes including Wantan Mee (RM7.80) and Claypot Loh Shi Fun (RM11). Unfortunately, they ran out of the Loh Shi Fun just as I entered the shop. I had to resort to making small talk with another customer in front of me who got the last Loh Shi Fun (no animosity whatsoever!).

Now, as a Penang lang, I’d say I’m more inclined to the “sweeter” chee cheong fun with its thick mix of soy and spicy sauce. I’m usually apprehensive to try the savoury ones even in dim sum restaurants. However, the preparation and final product of the chee cheong fun had me intrigued.

One of my biggest gripes when I go to restaurants or stalls is their stinginess in serving sambal which was the exact case here. Just as I was about to ask the owner for extra sambal, I decided to toss it together and give it a try regardless.

To my surprise, the tiny dollop of sambal was just enough to give the dish its required spice without being too overwhelming. The soft rice sheets just melted in my mouth into a graceful puddle of sweet pork, prawn and sauce puddles. There was no stringiness of some chee cheong fun that makes it hard to chew.

The chee cheong fun was just the right amount of sweet and salty. If you’re a meat lover, definitely opt for the char siew as they seemed to be more generous with the meat portions. While the prawn chee cheong fun was yummy in its own right with fresh prawns, I wished there were more prawns given.

Ten Hup - Wantan Mee

Now, to the downside or rather the meh-side, the Wantan mee did not blow me away and was just run-of-the-mill Wantan mee you could find anywhere. I was expecting the tenderness of the pork meat found in the chee cheong fun but alas, it was nowhere to be found. Upon talking to my newly made friend, he also said the Claypot Loh Shi Fun is just a simple dish he opts for when he doesn’t feel like having the usual.

Ten Hup - Kopi Peng

A surprise winner was the Kopi Peng; it was thick, creamy and delicious, a perfect breakfast ending.

Final thoughts

Would I visit Ten Hup again? A hundred percent yes! Would I order anything else besides the chee cheong fun? No! The main star and drink options are enough for a satisfactory breakfast.

No matter if you’re living in Kajang or if you’re looking for some authentic chee cheong fun, Ten Hup is your stall to visit.

Pro tip: Make sure you arrive early to secure your seat and have cash on you as this stall doesn’t offer cashless payment options!
