Penang Curry Mee @ Restoran OK, SS2, Petaling Jaya

mix the sambal in to give kick to your curry mee

This must be the most elusive stall I have been pursuing for a long time. I was once told about the existence of this place and forewarned about the difficulty in getting a bowl of curry mee here. Seems it only opens for business from 7.30 to 8am and by 9.30am, they are already scraping the last bits of their daily curry broth.

vegetables are healthy for you

Maybe I was in denial as I never believed the urban legend and used to drop by way beyond 9.30am to test it out. The many times I visited, I turned up with nothing as the stall would have closed for business. I was still happy to visit as I loved the
Lui cha here. The enterprising owner would come up with various types - eat it with crispy fried noodles, with healthier brown rice and the latest version I came across, all wrapped up in a cheong fun or rice flour roll. Priced at RM2.50 a roll, it was a little pricey but yummy stuff indeed with loads of greens within.

crispy popiah

Another stall that kept be occupied was the crispy popiah place that bore a striking resemblance to what is served at Sisters Popiah. This stall wasn't as nice as the Sisters but was pretty passable and decent.

I finally struck lottery one day, as I just managed to make it by 9.30 am (I'm not much of an early riser!) and after begging for a bowl, I finally got a taste of the infamous curry mee with the characteristic mild curry flavour topped with cockles, tofu puffs, blood cubes and brown cuttlefish. I've been hankering for a porky version of Penang styled curry mee for quite some time, especially since I found out Lorong Seratus Tahun has stopped serving their version with blood cubes since they have gone "pork free". This version passed muster for that day but didn't wow my tastebuds to sing, hallelujah!! I wonder whether I got short changed since it was literally the scrap of the barrel. Nevertheless, I shall attempt again to return for an earlier bowl. Now who is going to give me an early wake up call for me to reach there by 8am!!

I've tried this curry mee before, but maybe because I'm more Johorean, I don't find it at all THAT special to make people wake up sooo early to get it. But overall it's much nicer than normal curry mee =)
