When in this part of the world, one is always pondering about what culinary delight will be the highlight of the next meal (possible even as early as one day before).
It is akin to being a ‘national pastime’ – particularly when one realizes that tasty local fare abounds in Penang. A reputation that has spread far and wide, well beyond its geographical borders.
Whether in often uninteresting looking restaurants or from the hawker stalls, there is always a particular restaurant or vendor whose stall is more well-patronised than others. Such is the case with the ‘curry noodles’ or ‘curry mee’ in Penang.
As recent as mid-November, these sisters were publicised in the local daily for their famous curry noodle dish. Please click here to read all about it…
Another curry mee stall that we have been faithfully going to over the years is probably one of the city’s most well-kept secrets, though it has enough of a following at the Hillside, Tanjong Bungah area where it is located. To share this vendor’s location, here is the photo of the curry noodle stall and the chef himself… it is along the Jalan Sungei Kelian Road. Open for lunch, except on Thursdays.
We are thankfully fortunate to be in Penang where we enjoy easy access to these famous curry mee vendors….but what of our faraway friends who live in places that do not have such simple culinary joys of life within reach?
Then perhaps one might like to think of whipping it up in your own kitchen, the instant noodles way! The latest brand – MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodles – is said to be currently one of the best options available in a package. Try it if you can….. it is pretty good, if we may say so ourselves!
Toodles for now….
