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.

[tag]Mee goreng[/tag]! There’s a stall in Padang Kota Lama (Esplanade) that sells some kickass and spicy mee goreng that will definitely make you ask for more. Hameed ‘Pata’ Special Mee is hidden in a small food court next to the famous Fort Cornwallis. If you didn’t know its exact location you probably will miss it because it’s not really that visible from the main road.
However, Siang Leng was here before so I had absolutely no problem in locating this fabulous mee goreng. It is one of the best in Penang and you’d be crazy to miss this!
The mee goreng has all the flavor – sweet, sour and spicy. Sweetness from the gravy used to fry the noodles, hint of sourness from the lime and spiciness from the delicious cuttlefish. Ada kick! The ingredients used are pretty simple as you can see, just like those used in any other Indian fried noodles in [tag] Penang[/tag] .
So, the only things that can make the difference are the gravy and cuttlefish. They are really the main contributors to the noodles’ tastiness that made it stood out from the rest.
The stall seemed to be manned by two young cook and although they looked damn cincai when frying the noodles, the outcome was not disappointing at all lol. Besides mee goreng there are also mee rebus and other types of fried noodles. But usually people come here for their famous mee goreng. Only RM3.50 for a plate of satisfaction, guaranteed.
Arggh my stomach is growling by looking at the photo alone, and I just taken my dinner! Sigh, those in Penang are so lucky.. I can’t even find a great mee goreng here in Seri Kembangan. Well, some are quite good, but not as great as Hameed‘s.
One thing you need to be careful while enjoying your mee goreng here, the birds especially crows. There are PLENTY of them and they like to hang out in the trees in the food court’s premise. So, if you don’t want your noodles to have extra “toppings” you better watch out where you sit lol.
This mee goreng stall along Gurney Drive is a recommendation based on RasaRasa.net’s Penang Food guide book. I don’t have a copy of the book though, it was borrowed from a friend. Referred as “Penang Famous Edgecumbe Road Mee Rebus/Mee Goreng“, I just had to seek out this stall and see how much truth the claim holds.
This is what I am craving for here at Seri Kembangan, a good plate of mee goreng. In [tag]Penang[/tag], you can find mee goreng stalls almost anywhere whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I have never seen any stall so far over here, sigh. Mee goreng is almost non-existent here! Actually I have blogged about mee Jalil before but it looked really bad because it was take away. Now that the presentation is so much nicer, I am sure you will be more tempted to try it.
