Probably one of the hardest English names to pronounce, Thor Corr Phou Zi (土庫鋪子) is well-hidden under one of the low-cost residential flats near Sungai Pinang. It does take a little effort to locate this place... from Sungai Pinang Food Court, turn in the light-industrial zone and go straight into the PDC low-cost flat. Thor Corr Phou Zi can then be found on the right. It does not have a big menu to offer but some simple Toasts, English Breakfast and of course, the signature Fish Meat Curry Mee. Accordingly, it's the only place in Penang that sells Fish Meat Curry Mee. Not a place with perfect ambiance but if you are a fan of Curry Mee, this place is worth a look.
Signature Fish Meat Curry Mee (Rm 8.90)
Kaya Butter Toast (Rm 3.20)
Moji Tea (Rm 5.50)
Unlike the stereotype local Penang Curry Mee, Thor Corr Phou Zi's rendition is thicker and richer... served with Fish Meat, Okra and Tomatoes. The Curry flavor was not as thick as we would have hoped but the overall combination was alright. We were surprised to find out that the Fish Meat contained small broken bones... which we thought they would be dangerous for young diners (and a nuisance).
