When it comes to curry mee, I usually prefer the Penang variety with prawns, cockles, cuttlefish, and coagulated pork blood. However, that does not mean that I don’t enjoy the occasional Central Malaysia type of curry mee with a different set of ingredients, I just usually don’t purposely look for them.

Actually, the only reason I discovered this curry mee stall at Madras Lane was from a failed attempt to try the famous yong tau foo located at the same place since I went there way too early (before their usual 10 am opening hour.)

Anyway, this curry mee came with cockles that were just perfect, they were big, juicy, and almost raw. Then there’s those yummy deep fried pork skin, a few slices of eggplants, long beans, and tofupok in those thick curry gravy, which comes together making perfect compliments to the noodles with addition of those fragrant sambal.

I’m not a huge fan of KL curry mee, but this one is good. Try it.

It’s time to takl about yong tau foo again, and this time around it is the famous stall that is smacked right in the middle of the city at the lorong of Petaling Street (commonly called Chinatown now, though there isn’t that many Chinese manning the stalls.)

The stall is called Madras Lane Yong Tau Foo, and to be honest I’m not entirely sure how the name came about, since the location is actually closest to Petaling Street and Lorong Bandar 20. I’m guessing it was most likely historical.

Anyway, Madras Lane Yong Tau Foo is always the busiest stall in that small stretch of street hawkers, but since serving yong tau foo is a relatively fast process, you don’t usually have to wait more than a few minutes.

A piece of yong tau foo is priced at RM 1.20, be it lady’s finger, fried dumpling, foo-chok, red chili, brinjal, or others. They have a pretty decent selection of both boiled and deep fried yong tou foo choices.

I usually like to have mine a healthy mix of different items, but my must-haves involves tofu, red chili, and lady’s fingers. The version here definitely did not disappoint, I particularly love their soft and flavourful fish paste stuffing.

If you’re in town and especially around Petaling Street area, this is definitely a place worth checking out.
