Curry Noodles House (北海咖哩面之家) @ Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang.

One of the favorite supper places for nearby residents is undeniably Curry Noodles House (北海咖哩面之家) which can be found along the ubiquitous food lane of Raja Uda. Tucked within the shop houses along Jalan Raja Uda, Curry Noodles House (北海咖哩面之家) specializes in offering Curry Mee as well as some other additional "add-ons". Guests are able to top their Curry Mee with their own preferred ingredients but all of the ingredients share a common characteristic- to be doused with their home-made Curry Sauce. Well, I thought the foods we had were disappointingly average and I do not think that I am willing to travel that far just for a bowl of ordinary Curry Mee. 

Curry Noodles House's signature Curry Mee (Rm 4/ regular) which comes with some Long Beans, Tofu Puffs/ Tofu Pok, Coagulated Pig Blood and Cockles. Unlike most Curry Mee stalls, their version appeared to be slightly thicker, richer and creamier. The flavorful stock has a discernible aroma of Coconut Cream/ Santan while the home-made Chili Paste heighten the flavors by adding an extra chili kick. A decent Curry Mee but not mind-blowing. 

Add-on is possible at additional costs. Guests are to choose their own preferred ingredients and the restaurateur will serve them to you. Most of the dishes there will be curry-based and to be very frank, all of the dishes tasted almost similar after a taste or two- heavily drenched with their home-cooked Curry Sauce, one can hardly tell the significant differences between those dishes. I had a Chicken Drumstick at Rm 4 each and Okra at Rm 1 each. Cheap? Not quite and it did not taste as impressive as I would have hoped, you might love the Curry if you are someone who prefers bold flavors- spicy but oily. Also, I thought some White Rice should work better than Curry Mee though..... 

Other options include Clams, Prawns, Pork Meat, Stingray, Squids etc....
