Penang hokkien mee, or prawn mee as it is usually called here in Klang Valley, is one of the more iconic dishes from the island known for its good hawker food. While prawn mee is quite available this part of the country, its sister dish – loh mee, is quite a bit trickier to find.

Hence, whenever I find a hawker stall offering Penang loh mee, I’d usually give it a try. This same opportunity presented itself when I was at Do Re Mi 123 kopitiam looking to have kuih teow soup a few weeks ago, forgetting that it moved to nearby Hock Seng kopitiam.

As per my usual style, I ordered using Penang Hokkien, and the operator seemed to understand, passing my pseudo authenticity check.

Luckily though, the loh mee turned out pretty good. It came with appropriate condiments of minced garlic with vinegar and sambal, as well as proper ingredients with sliced pork, prawns, hard boiled eggs, kangkung, bean sprouts, and those really thick starchy soup.

Overall taste was on point, though I’d probably give Johnny’s version a slight upper hand due to the availability of more ingredient choices, but this one was definitely sufficient to satisfy cravings.
