Loh Mee, one of the few hawker dishes that can mean different dishes at different region in Malaysia. Today, we’re going to concentrate on one particularly unique Northern version of loh mee found at EUPE Food Court in Sungai Petani.
For those who aren’t familiar with EUPE, it is this huge food court occupying 28 different shop lots joined together in Sungai Petani, and as you can imagine, it is quite big in size. The modus operandi for most stalls here is by self-service, which can sometimes bit a bit inconvenient, but that’s.. er.. life.
The loh mee stall here specializes only on loh mee, but it does come with three different main ingredients to choose from – loh bak, chicken feet & mushroom, or fried fish.
The queue for this stall is often long (second only to the curry mee stall), but the reward is absolutely worthwhile. The broth is thick and flavorful, with the loh bak giving it that extra omph you don’t find in other versions of loh mee. There’s also half a hard boiled egg, bean sprouts, fish cake slices, and your choice of yellow noodle or meehun, with chili, garlic, fried shallots, and green onion, and a dash of vinegar making up the rest of the ingredient list.
A delicious treat for sure, and all for less than RM 5 per pop.
If you find yourself at Sungai Petani, do give this a try.
