Probably the very best white curry mee you’ll style, hidden in Penang


When Penang meals is talked about, your thoughts wanders to the streets of Chowrasta, Little India, Gurney Drive and principally each vacationer spot conceivable on the island. As a fellow Penang mainland-er I’m perplexed about how so many hidden meals spots simply throughout the bridge stay underrated. So think about my shock when this curry mee stall popped up!

Chain Ferry Road Curry Mee

One such spot that I got here throughout is Chain Ferry Street Curry Mee positioned within the Outdated Market Meals Court, Chain Ferry. With spectacular Google critiques, patrons have been calling it the very best white curry mee they’ve ever had in the entire mainland, if not the entire of Penang. Properly, you’ll be able to’t throw daring statements like these round, and this acquired me eager to verify them out.

What I attempted at Chain Ferry Street Curry Mee

After I arrived on the stall, I used to be shocked to discover a queue particularly for the stall regardless of it being a working Friday morning. The remainder of the meals court docket, then again, didn’t boast many choices nor did a lot of the patrons categorical a lot curiosity.

After about quarter-hour, we acquired our noodles and to be frank, it seemed like each different bowl of curry mee I’ve come throughout. The “equipment” which accompanied the curry mee included ONE prawn, a beneficiant heap of cockles, cuttlefish and pork blood.

After mixing the sauce and curry to finish fruition, it achieved a silky golden color. Now, as with the case of most curry mee, it’s normally with a thick layer of oil movie that may put folks off, and to not point out, unhealthy.

Nevertheless, within the case of this white curry mee, albeit a couple of speckles of oil right here and there, it largely seemed like a hearty bowl of curry mee. The primary sip of curry fully blew me away with its wealthy flavour profile.

The curry was creamy and wealthy with out being overwhelming in any means. It hit all the suitable notes and I had to withstand the urge of slurping up the curry proper there after which. When paired with the noodles, the flavours have been elevated however the curry nonetheless remained the star of the dish.

As somebody who seeks out the proteins in curry mee, I used to be a little bit disillusioned with the dearth of it within the noodles. (However, can we anticipate a lot for RM5.50?). As a first-time pork blood taster, I discovered that it didn’t add a lot to the general cohesiveness of the dish. Might this be an indication for me to style extra variations of pork blood?

Remaining ideas

Previous to this, I at all times assumed that a superb bowl of curry mee consists of noodles, curry and most significantly, protein. With one sip of this curry mee, I’m now a modified man! If given the choice, I’d simply devour the curry again and again and hopefully be drowned in it.

I’m nonetheless uncertain if this curry mee is the BEST in Penang nevertheless it’s undoubtedly top-of-the-line I’ve had in a very long time. In the event you’re travelling to Penang, be sure that to take a look at this spot earlier than your voyage throughout the bridge!
