Continuing my eating spree back in Penang, I visited one of my favorite Mee Goreng stalls located at the small hawker center at Mount Eskin. This stall has been operating for well over twenty years, before there were any hawker centers at the same spot. Owned by one of my primary schoolmate’s mom, it used to be the Indian lady who does all the frying, but nowadays the son (my friend’s brother) has taken over the helm.

cozy little hawker center

The mee goreng in Penang is served slightly different from those you find in the Klang Valley, and argueably tastes alot better. Other than the usual ingredients such as shrimp cake, tofu, and egg, there is also bean sprouts and squid that you don’t find at mee goreng served up at, say, the SS2 mamak stalls. Some fresh vege and a slice of lime tops the dish. Apart from the ingredients, the dish is usually served wetter than their counterparts from KL.

The mee goreng here costs RM 2.50 a plate without egg and RM 3.00 with, a little pricey for Penang standard but worth the gastronomical satisfaction in my book. Next time you head to Penang, don’t just glut yourself with the usual char kueh teow, curry mee, and laksa, there’re alot of other awesome hawker offerings too.
