Best Curry Mee in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Thanks to the Penang White Curry instant noodle craze back then, most of us have had our eyes (and tongue) opened to the wonderful delicacy of Penang curry. While the instant noodles were a hit, Penang locals definitely prefer the original recipe, the ones you enjoy with a piping hot bowl by the streets. This comfort food is derived from a hearty combination of curry and coconut milk in the soup and topped with Penang specials like coagulated pig's blood, cuttlefish, and tiny cockles. So go drop those packets aside and head downtown for an authentic non-processed taste of Penang Curry Mee!

    This humble stall with no visible signboard is operated by two elderly Teochew sisters who have been running it for over 60 year! With little coconut milk used, the curry broth might appear mild but that's where their awesome in-house sambal chilli comes in. Add in as much as you please to get that addictive spicy kick to your curry! On the side note, some customers have cringed at the sight of the the meal prepared on the floor but being a popular street food, it still delivers that unforgettable robust curry taste that would make your experience here worthwhile.
    Tips

    Tuai Pui Curry MeeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Tuai Pui curry mee differs slightly from the usual Penang style. They still include the usual side toppings such as tofu pok, coagulated blood, blood cockles, cuttle fish, but you can expect other optional items to jazz up the dish. Choose to add in chunky chicken gizzards, tasty big prawns, chicken wings, fish balls, and even more, Some sides are already cooked in curry making your soup thicker and tastier the more you add in! However, everything comes with a price - the additional add-ons do not come cheap.
    Tips

    The bare original version unfortunately comes with no prawns.

    Things to expect

    A variety of side dishes to add on.

    Best with

    Best to top up your curry mee with chicken feet and curry chicken!

    Hot Bowl Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Once operating in Lorong Abu Siti back then, this raved stall is now located at Jalan Rangoon. The white curry mee comes with mouthwatering toppings like cuttlefish, bean curd puffs (tau fu pok) and cockles. Did you know that the reason why white curry is white is because it's missing the reddish chilli paste? Here they place the chilli paste on your table and offer you the liberty to add as much as you want! However, watch out for your chilli-adding frenzy as too much of it will arrive to an extremely 'Hot Bowl'. 
    Tips

    The portion is rather small. Big eaters might want to order large size.

    Things to expect

    Hot Bowl has a lighter pale colour compared to others because less coconut milk is used.

    Best with

    Drop by Abu Siti Lane nearby for some jelly coconuts and fresh coconuts to cool down after the spicy meal!

    Price

    RM4.00 to RM10.00

    Kampung Aston Curry Mee 碧姨咖喱面Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The infamous curry mee from Kampung Aston is a rare favourite with its a hate it or love it relationship with the curry that deviates from the ordinary Penang variant. Fo one, this recipe involves very little santan coconut milk and the curry is prepped with Indian curry spices to build up the flavour, which actually results on a robust and thicker soup. The chlili paste is strongly seasoned, and some customers found it a tad bit too salty. However give it a few tries and you might adore it like a true local. But we can assure avid curry mee lovers with preference for heavy flavour will appreciate this!
    Tips

    Located at Restoran Nature Garden, Taman Maju Utama near to where all the latest cafes and restaurants like Old Town Kopitiam, Blogger’s Cafe and Station One Cafe are concentrated at.

    Things to expect

    Thick curry goodness.

    Best with

    Chulia Street Curry Mee

    If you have a soft spot for curry mee, this is one of the hotspots not to be missed. The stall is burrowed between the bustling street food scene at Chulia Street. Yet, you will have no hard time spotting the stall as it’s commonly encircled by both locals and tourists. Under the stewardship of an elderly lady who has immense experience up her sleeves, waiting time isn’t too long. Expect an adequately portioned serving of yellow noodles and vermicelli, ladled with savoury curry and topped with succulent squids, cockles, fish ball, tofu cubes and a dollop of chilli concoction. The gravy certainly highlights the essence of the bowl, it’s full of aroma and the amount of coconut milk is just right. However, for optimal satisfaction, do opt for the big bowl. 

    Tips

    Closed on Monday & parking is scarce during weekend and public holidays
