Giant Curry Mee (巨无霸咖喱面) @ Kimberley Street, Georgetown, Penang.

Curry Mee (otherwise known as Curry Laksa in central region) has always been one of Penangites' favorite local delicacies but the newly opened eatery along Kimberley Street offers the noodles with an upgrade. While the classic bowl of Curry Mee costs Rm 5 here, the deep pockets could go for the premium option with plenty of Seafood and Meat topped, at the price of Rm 11.50. The entire shop is dedicated to serving Curry Mee and has been drawing great attention from early risers and market-goers (right in front of the entrance to Chowrasta Market- Kimberley Street entrance). Curry Mee enthusiasts might welcome the idea but we'd like to think otherwise, perhaps a bowl of delicious-classic Curry Mee is good enough for us.

Signature Giant Curry Mee (Rm 11.50)

The actual product seemed a little different as compared to what illustrated on the menu; instead of Curry Mee with an over-flowing of ingredients, the curry noodles were served with condiments like Curry Chicken and Potatoes, Roasted Pork, Shrimp and Deep Fried Bean Curd Sheets. The concoction was creamy and rich... perhaps a little too creamy and overly-greasy to our liking. The condiments did not shine either, instead of complementing the noodles, it was as though they were served separately. I'll need to think twice if I were to pay Rm 11.50 again for that.

  1. Looks good! Packed with all the ingredients, worth the price!

  2. There is similar curry mee topped with abundance of "liu" at KL which has created a craze.

  3. Thanks for the review. Was there, but hesitated to try the food. Now that I read your review, I made the right choice.
