Curry Mee 19
Just a quick update to let you guys know that Penang Corner has shifted to a larger stall a few doors away from their previous location. With the extra space, it's more like a mini food court now and they could accommodate more stalls in it too.
If you're a fan of Penang Curry Mee, then Jia Li Mian Shi Guan restaurant deserves your attention.
They serve by far the most authentic looking (note: looks) Penang Curry Mee in KL with all the toppings you could think of including pork blood cubes, prawns, ginger flower and mint. For that alone, I give them A+ for the effort of preserving the authenticity.
Besides Aunty Gemuk, Lau Wan is another pork-free Penang-style char koay teow in PJ. Apparently, his char koay teow is so good that it recently won The Star People's Food Awards for the best char koay teow category. In fact, it beat the runner-up by almost double the votes. With that in mind, I had to drop by and try it for myself.
This obscene looking curry mee overloaded with toppings needs no further introduction. It went viral online a few months ago and it's probably the most famous in town. Their curry mee is doing so well that it's sold out even before the stall is ready for business.
The search is over, I have found the most authentic Penang Curry Mee in KL, and it's at OUG's Sun Sea Kopitiam. It is also called Kuantan Road Penang Curry Mee, as the brothers who operate the stall used to live at the eponymous street in Penang.
Madras Lane is popular for two things - curry laksa and yong tau fu. But there are three noodle stalls in this small hawker centre. Peculiarly enough, all of them have pretty much the same menu and that includes curry laksa. So, which one should you go for?
