Whenever I’m back to Penang, curry mee is always something I look forward to. To me, it is one of the essential Penang hawker food that one must have whenever on the island, alongside with char kuih teow, prawn mee, and laksa.

Most of the good curry mee stalls in Penang often operates during morning & afternoon time, such as tua pui curry mee & the stall at Mt. Erskrine hawker stalls, so today I’m going to share one that operates in the evening/night time instead.

For this, we go back to Mt. Erskrine, but this time at the market area right next to the temple.

The curry mee stall is actually ran by a childhood friend “Ah Yong” and offers proper Penang style curry mee with santan-base white soup, sambal that’s properly fragrant and carries a kick. The result is a base that should satisfy any curry mee love, and I was certainly convinced.

Of course, there’s also the usual ingredients of prawns, cockles, tofu pok, bean sprouts, and my favorite – coagulated pork blood. You can even add more these ingredients if you want to indulge a little bit more.

In the photos above is small with extra add ons (RM 9.00), and a small (RM 6.00) curry mee. If you’re looking for curry mee in Penang at night, this is one to check out.

    Somehow Penang-style white curry mee doesn’t appeal to me that much. I still prefer our more savoury KL-style curry mee (with chicken, char siew or siu yuk) coz one with seafood ingredients (prawns & cuttlefish) can’t quite give off the same savouriness. But I do eat Penang curry mee once in a while and my go-to is the one in Jia Li Mian, Pandan Jaya.

      eatwhateatwhere: well as for me, I like them both, but my preference is still the penang type. In fact, I also like the Ipoh dry type too!
