Pak Man Mee Kuah Ketam is a small canteen like shop at Cherok Tok Kun that is famous for their traditional Malay noodles that uses flower crab to prepare the delicious gravy. The stall is located located just at the intersection before you turn into the road leading to Bukit Mertajam hill.
I am not sure if Haji Mohd is a branch or somehow related to Pak Man because both of them seem to sell the same thing. But their noodles tastes different so I am guessing no.
When ordering, I stood next to the stall and noticed a big pot of simmering gravy used to prepare the Mee Kuah. It smelled terrific and the heat was very overpowering. By this I knew I was in for something special.
A normal plate of Mee Kuah Ketam costs RM3, or RM3.50 for the bigger plate as well as the Mee Kuah Special. Not exactly cheap for BM standards but I would say it’s worth it considering the generous amount of ingredients they give – chewy sweet and spicy sotong, prawns, ‘heh chee‘ (prawn pritters), tau kua, chilies, hard boiled egg and a sprinkle of crushed peanuts. Shown here is the Mee Kuah Special, which I think had extra prawns and sotong.
