I’m a big fan of curry mee, in fact, it is probably my second most favorite hawker dishes all of time, just right behind char kuih teow.

But unlike char kuih teow that are almost always served with the same ingredients, curry mee can be tricky. There’re the Ipoh/central region variety that comes with curry chicken, cockles, and (if  you are lucky) pork skin, and there’s the Penang version with prawns, santan based broth, cockles, and increasingly rarely – coagulated pork blood.

P/S: this stall has moved to Seapark, PJ. Click here to find out.

The Penang version curry mee isn’t the most common hawker offering in Klang Valley, and as far as I know, only a handful of  them serve up a bowl with all the ingredients. So when I found out about this curry mee stall at the newish hawker center at PJ Old Town by the name of Restaurant Good Food, I was rather excited.

The operator did speak fluent Penang hokkien, and the bowl of curry mee did indeed come with all the bell & whistles you’d expect – with some extra long beans & lime, but minus the mint leave (i’m nitpicking here).

Apart from the prawns being a bit smallish, this was actually a very good bowl of curry mee, it was the “right” flavor all the way down to the proper sambal with that iconic slightly burnt taste to it. I liked it.

For me, the curry mee at Restaurant Okay at SS2 still edges over this one, but I can almost never wake up in time before they are sold out (usually by 9 a.m. on weekends). This place opens till around 3pm, so hureii!

  1. You always hunt for pig blood 1. You vampire, you! :lol:

    PS: The Campbell can is so cute!

  2. Oh wow! Look at those plump cockles!

  3. if char kuey teow is #1 and curry mee is #2, what’s #3? i’ll just guess hokkien mee? hehe :D

  4. looks pretty authentic. where’s the chilli?

    • Myhorng: haha i actually added more chili later on, seems like KL ppl usually don’t put as much.

  5. LIKE it.. mark it down too.. ;-)

  6. I still remember one of the nicer curry mee I had in Sg nibong at night.. the curry soup was pale white in colour and we’re given curry paste to mix into the soup, as spicy as we wanted it to be. The soup then became fiery red.. SO GOOD!! :)

    • iamthewitch: this one is like that too! but of course Penang is .. Penang la, always better wan. :D

  7. I grew up in PJ Old Town and haven’t even been to this restaurant before. Now that I’ve moved, but still go back weekly to see Mom – I must check this out next week.

    Yes – the “See hum” looks delicious!!!

  8. When i was in melbourne, i feel really envious that you can enjoy pork blood but not anymore… muahahahahahaha!

    sambal with slightly burnt taste… hmm, i prefer my sambal slightly on the sour side. hehehehe

  9. I come here for lunch sometimes! Haha …. the char siew rice not too bad, though the others like the pan mee.

  10. u are really such a big fan of coagulated pig blood!

  11. Looks real good! Coagulated blood, nais!

  12. wah..super nice.. i also want..

  13. […] is one of the few original Penang curry mee you can find (others are restaurant Okay, PJ SS2 & restaurant Good Food, PJ old town) that comes with coagulated pork blood. My aim is to find more of the same breed in Klang Valley […]

    • Went to this shop today and realized the curry mee was no longer there….:( Wondering where the curry mee shifted? Craving for penang curry me…

      • I meant the Restaurant Good Food curry mee…now Restaurant Okay is the only left penang curry mee…but the fragrant is not as nice as penang one…wonder where else selling nice penang curry mee

  14. […] to be deterred, I then drove another 12.5 KM to the curry mee at Restaurant Good Food in PJ Old Town…. to find out that they’ve moved. By then I was too hungry and settled […]

  15. Auntie & Uncle resigned from as hawker…last tasted their curry mee was before CNY 2013 in Millenium PJ (Near to ONS…
