Kampung Malabar Curry Mee 咖喱麵 , Penang

Penang [檳城] • 22 APRIL 2013
Curry Mee is a dish that is unique to Malaysia, usually made up of thin yellow egg noodles or/and string thin mee-hoon (rice vermicelli) with spicy curry soup, coconut milk, and a choice of dried tofu, prawns, cuttlefish, chicken, egg and mint leaves. 

However, what makes Curry Mee is a special chilli/sambal and edible pig's blood.

He happily obliged and a short while later we were presented with this…

Looks really yummy right? And it was! I loved it. The soup was thick and ‘lemak’ and there were strips of chicken meat in it too.  After finishing the curry mee, I felt bad to just leave the bowl there, so I took it back to the curry mee man, who told me ‘beh yau keen, ka tan wa ki giah tou eh liao’ (loosely translated from Hokkien – Nevermind, later I go and take can already)

This kopitiam is along Kampung Malabar (the road next to Campbell Street). Right next to the Curry Mee stall is the small lane that leads to Toh Soon Cafe.
