Best Mee Suah in Penang

Written by Updated ago

From the first meal of the day till supper hours, we Malaysians are always open to never-ending selections of noodles that we love to the core. Despite being pocket-friendly and pretty quick to be prepared, mee suah isn't enjoying the fair share of the limelight. This thread-thin vermicelli is made from wheat flour and is a celebration food among Fujian Chinese as it’s referred to as “Long Life Noodles” because they are long. No wonder, it turns into a celebrity during convalescence. Just like any noodles, mee suah can be served in various forms – stir-fried or drenched in different broths. Joints below guarantee to feed your stomach and soul together, and sure to change the previous notions about this humble-looking dish.

    Cowboy Street Cafe

    No, you won’t be bumping onto any spur-booted cowboys and this cafe is nowhere near a cattle ranch. Expect a simple eatery at the heart of Georgetown dishing out a selection of local delights. However, the real deal here is their Red Wine Chicken Mee Suah, an innovative take on the comfort dish that keeps you coming over and over again. Rich in aroma and visually appealing with a bright-red hue, sleek noodles, pieces of chicken and homemade fish balls simmer in red wine infused broth that offers pleasure excursion at each mouthful. Certainly lives up to the fame and loyal following.

    77 Food Yard

    Multitude of crowd and a myriad of mouthwatering food, two giveaway indications that 77 Food Yard is a must-go. Among the best sellers here is the duck noodles stall where you can witness pieces of duck doused in the clear soup are placed in a pot and steamed for few hours. Yes, it's worth a few snaps. There are numerous choices of noodles yet stick with the most ordered one - mee suah, which offers a smooth mouthful to complement the tender duck drumstick. On top of that, the broth is pretty light with herby overtones.

    Cafe Deli Miu

    A popular haunt for locals to gather over a range of local delicacies that is easy on the wallet. Plenty of hungry bellies constantly swamp to the Mee Sua Kor stall that ticks all boxes for an exemplary one. Expect a gooey broth thickened with starch and egg, then muddled with crab meats, prawns, minced pork, chopped mushrooms and velvety noodles. Few lashes of black vinegar steep up the flavours of the dish to guarantee you finishing the bowl sparkling clean.

It may be visually simple yet you’ll fell like a champ after mopping up the bowl in a blink of an eye.

    Good All Cafe

    This gastronomy amphitheatre has been a darling of media and words of mouth as it plays host to an endless amount of tantalising dishes. If you’re tired of soupy versions of mee suah, then why not go for a more oily, spicy and smoky version; in other words stir-fried. Tossed and stirred in a huge wok with eggs, prawns, bean sprouts and handful of greens, you’ll find yourself not getting enough of it as it’s utterly delicious. To further augment the flavours, dabble in their spicy sambal.

    Island Park Restaurant

    Nothing fancy to boast about the ambience of this restaurant yet if you’re hankering for a scrumptious spread of local delights, this is it.  Among the most reputable stalls here is the mee suah where you can always spot a decent crowd flocking orders. Generously portioned, the starchy and eggy broth is chock full of airy noodles, meat chunks, greens and crabsticks. Slurp it up clean with few drizzles of black vinegar. 

    Tips

    Parking is really a huge trouble, you may have to wait for sometime. Parking at the housing area is not advised.

    Success Air Itam

    It is pretty much evident that this full-of-life eatery is a foodie’s paradise. If you’re searching for something that is comforting and equally delectable, then Mee Sua Kor is not to be missed. Served on the brink of spilling of the bowl and flavours that are steeped deeply with starch and eggs, you could easily have it every day without a word of whine.
