When I first heard about Gulam Mee I thought it was some sort of new noodle in town. Turns out, it is actually just the name for a restaurant that specializes in both Mee Goreng and Mee Rebus that has its roots in Kedah. It seemed that the consensus about this place was great, so I dropped by one day for dinner.


Gulam-Mee-Stall

From the photos I saw from their Facebook, the Gulam Mee appears to be quite happening and crowded. But when we were there, the place was rather empty and only a few tables were occupied in the large seating area. We placed our order for a Special Mee Goreng and Char Koay Teow. It didn’t take long for the noodles to arrive.

Gulam-Mee-Goreng

As someone who’s from the northern Malaysia, I immediately recognized the Mee Goreng’s familiar aroma and flavour. It was well fried with a thick peanut sauce and some beef slices thrown in, slightly sweet and topped off with a sunny side up. This is totally different from the usual Mee Goreng Mamak you get in KL so I could understand why some would find the taste peculiar, in a bad way.

Char-Koay-Teow

Although the Char Koay Teow was not bad, it was a far cry from my hometown’s. Until today I strongly believe that Bukit Mertajam and its neighbouring towns dish up the best Malay-style Char Koay Teow. The main issue is the lack of prawn flavour in the gravy, and maybe the kicap used wasn’t as good as those found in Penang.

Ais-Kacang

The Ais Kacang was delightful but the freshness of some ingredients’ was questionable.

Gulam-Mee-Satay

Besides fried noodles there are a couple of other food stalls offering things like nasi lemak, chicken rice, ikan bakar and satay. We ordered a few chicken and mutton satay just for the sake of trying and found them surprisingly good. The satay here is definitely better than the average and I would actually recommend the chicken satay.

Gulam-Mee-Food-Court

Despite some good things about Gulam Mee, I doubt I will return because the prices they charge are pretty crazy. For a simple meal without anything fancy like this we were charged RM38.50 in total. I know we ordered the special edition but I don’t think the noodles warranted the price of RM9 each.
