Best Loh Mee in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Loh Mee is a Malaysia staple that originated during the migratory waves of Hokkien people. Similar to most soupy noodle dishes out there, the main draw of loh mee is the broth which is a melange of soy sauce, starch, meat or crustacean stock and eggs. The thick and flavoursome broth is then ladled onto yellow noodles and topped with braised meats, eggs and sprinkle of fried scallions. For a dose of heat, chilli concoction is also provided. Comforting, fulfilling and full of flavours – eateries below put their heart and soul to deliver standout bowls of loh mee that tugs your heart upon the first mouthful. Be sure of heading over with an empty stomach.

    Million Loh Mee

    This spacious establishment gives loh mee lovers all reasons to be buoyant, especially if you fancy chicken feet to share space in your bowl too. The thick broth scores on both texture and flavour and they are never skimp on the ingredients such as pork skin, braised egg and the key player - chicken feet. The braised feet are cooked to perfection, tender and succulent, complementing the springy noodles. Condiments like vinegar, chopped garlic and chilli condiment lineup for that additional oomph.

    Hainan Lor Mee

    Another reliable hotspot for a drool-worthy bowl of loh mee. Don’t be deterred by the nondescript ambience of the eatery as the flavours definitely deliver at every level. The bare-basic stall is constantly churning out bowls of murky noodles that would win you over. Slippery smooth noodles and thick broth with assorted meat and braised egg toppings seal up a true sensory treat. For an additional flavour kick, splashing a dash or two of vinegar would be great.

    One Corner Cafe

    This cavernous food court has been a perennial favourite for locals with a scrumptious spread of food options that does not burn a hole in your wallet. If you itch for something soupy and brims with bold flavours, head over to the loh mee stall. What sets you drooling immediately is the alluring Five Spices aroma that just cannot be ignored. The braised egg, handful of meats and smattering of fried onions perched atop the bed of noodles further augments the whole slurping experience. Tired of the soupy version? Opt for their dry version which is worth giving a try.

    As per the name, Hokkien Mee is the best seller here but if you need another reason to visit, their loh mee is not to be missed. During peak hours, waiting time may be a little longer but just peering at the stall owner preparing bowls after bowls of moreish noodles certainly makes time run fast. The dark gravy is a masterstroke, it truly shackles onto your taste buds with subtle richness and starchiness. The bed of noodles is then topped with fried pork lards, smatterings of shrimps, hard-boiled egg, fried onions and chopped garlic. Ignore table manners as slurping is a standard when you have a merrymaking bowl like this. 

    Tips

    During peak hours, be prepared to wait for a little longer.

    Hwa Lam Coffee Shop

    This unassuming restaurant is where you can always bring over your entire entourage as there is always something for everyone to devour. Sidestepping from regular loh mee stalls, here you can find black vinegar loh mee, which has gathered a strong reputation for newcomers and patrons alike. And yes, just like the picture above, the portions are pretty generous and the flavours burst to the fore with each mouthful. And what better way to chomp down the alluring bowl than a side of chilli sauce.
