What is curry mee? Penang Curry Mee is one of the MUST TRY hawker food when in Penang. This dish is made up from the thin yellow noodles and rice vermicelli (which we call bihun / bee hoon ) here served with spicy curry soup and coconut milk. To complete the dish, locals usually add in extra ingredients like dried tofu (tau pok), pig’s coagulated blood cubes, prawn, cuttlefish, chicken, boiled eggs, long beans and cockles. Just thinking about it, i’m sure you are already drooling. In certain places in Southeast Asia, especially southern Malaysia, Johor and Singapore calls it Curry Laksa.
Why this place? When we first visited this place, Hot Bowl White Curry Mee was filled with tourists and locals queuing up just to eat their curry mee / deboned chicken. Despite the long queue, we waited patiently for a table and try for ourselves. Unlike other Curry Mee stalls in Penang, Hot Bowl has a lighter pale colour soup compared to others because less coconut milk is used, hence the locals call this place the White Curry Mee. On each table, they prepared a container of chilli paste for the customers to add in at their own will. The homemade chilli paste helps to flavoured the overall taste better and spicier. Their shop is situated along Lorong Abu Siti. Also nearby is the famous Abu Siti Lane jelly coconuts and fresh coconuts.
Weekend is here again so that spells Food Hunting!
We decided to skip breakfast and gorge ourselves on the famous Marshall’s Burger. This non-halal joint is located beside Giant, opposite BMW on Burma Road and just along the main road. So, try not to miss the signboard
Just a random thought, it seems as if burgers are a hit in Penang lately, judging from the amount of burger joints sprouting up.
Porky Koay Teow Thng a.k.a Guo Tiao Thng in 7 Village Noodle House for a quick lunch before our movie.
About 7 Village Noodle House, Mr Lim, the founder begun his business selling Koay Teow Thng in Butterworth using tri-cycle. In 1970, they stopped the tri-cycle method and opened a small store, Lin Restaurant. They took the name 7 Village Noodle House due to the area that the restaurant was set up. In 1998, they moved to Raja Uda as they expand to two shops. And slowly in 2009, the chain business started and they now have 4 restaurants targeted in Penang Island and Butterworth area. (Raja Uda / Nibong Tebal / Bukit Tengah and Abu Siti Lane)
In their menu, famous Koay Teow Thng and Dry Koay Teow or La Mien.
Salsas newly open in Paragon Mall. We are here on a Groupon Assignment to snap pictures to promote their Salsa’s Homemade Burger and Half Pint of Hoegaarden Beer.
Located inside Paragon Mall, Level 2 beside Padini. Salsa is facing the famous Kelawei Road. You can also see a board directing you to the restaurant, a very tiny but yet thoughtful detail from the restaurant. So quickly we found the restaurant and settle down to business.
We have also included the pictures of the interior, exterior and the pretty deco in our blog. The owner is very kind and particular in the detail for the food served too. *thumbs up*. He made sure the food is made only when we reach to maintain the freshness of the food. He also kindly offer us to have food tasting after our shoot, again he reheat the food before serving. Good service! Waiters are all well trained and smiley!
Check out the deal below!~~
Note : Salsas Restaurant does not serve pork, but offers alcohol in its menu.
Jiao Sai Mee Goreng is very well known among the locals. Even if you haven’t try it, you would have heard about it.
You may be curious as to how the term jiao sai came about. For those of you who aren’t well versed in Penang’s conversational dialect, Jiao Sai is a Hokkien phrase for Bird Shit; fret not, they do not include that in their famed mee goreng.
The story behind this unappetizing name is that the humble restaurant earned it from the place where they were previously located at (Jalan Phee Choon) , and it just so happened that there were flocks of birds which left plenty of egestion material behind. Since then, they have moved to a new location (Jalan Argyll).
OKAY! So, they are famous for their Tomyam Maggi Goreng with Chicken and Original Maggi Goreng with Chicken. Both are served with a sunny side up.
