Curry Mee

Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are.—Brillat-Savarin

I found a bunch of pictures of Malaysian food that I had took during my last trip home and so I'll slowly post them up. Here are two pics of Curry Mee(curry noodles) from my favorite stall in Penang. It's located on Dato Kramat Road, in the little corner coffee shop next to the small Chinese temple/Convent Datuk Kramat. Ask the locals :)

This couple's stall sells Curry Mee, Koay Teow Th'ng and Kai See Hor Fun. All of the dishes are sooooo GOOD, but it's the Curry Mee that always has me salivating.

The curry broth is utterly scrumptious and just lemak (creamy/rich) enough without leaving a jelak (how to translate taste in your mouth.

This stall also makes their Curry Mee old-school style, meaning it has see ham (blood cockles), jew-hoo (rehydrated cuttlefish) and too-huik (congealed pig's blood). Aww....don't gag people... it's absolutely delish! Honest!'s also an acquired taste and I've been eating this stuff since I was a child.

Looks good doesn't it? I would kill for a bowl of good Curry Mee, here in good ole Wisconsin.

Misery: You have never eaten there before? Wow, you really need to try it. Yes, I love the fact that it's so close to home.

Thanks for the recommendation. I guess I don't always have to go to Perak Rd and Swatow Lane for curry mee. :)
