Ipoh Curry Mee @ Pepper Estate, Fettes Park, Penang.
Far deep inside one of the oldest estates in Penang is an old wooden house (with a food stall) that sells Ipoh Curry Mee. The aforementioned Curry Mee is known to many residents in the neighborhood and has been selling for years. We did not find it especially delicious and worth-trying, probably a taste that the regulars patrons accustomed to. Well if you have decided to try your luck here, from the entrance to Pepper Estate (off Fettes Park), go straight and proceed to Jalan Pepper Estate (do not turn right to Medan Fettes) and drive for a short while, you will find this place right after a small field (corner unit).
Ipoh Curry Mee (Rm 4.50/ regular)
Koay Teow Th'ng (Rm 4.50/ regular)
We noticed most diners had their Ipoh Curry Mee on our visit, we were probably the only table that had both Koay Teow Th'ng and Ipoh Curry Mee. The broth of the Ipoh Curry Mee seems to be rather diluted in flavor but creamier than usual. It lacked of the salty-element and the overall taste was compromised. Fragrance-wise was alright but the lack of salinity spoilt the overall taste. Meat lovers can satisfy their crave for meat at additional cost of Rm 4.50... to top some home-made Roasted Pork Belly. Their Koay Teow Th'ng on the other hand, was mediocre. Both flavor and texture of the Koay Teow did not stand out, unlikely a bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng that could leave me a deep impression. I'd give it a miss if I were you.
On a side note, their Ipoh Curry Mee is only available on every Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday.
