Been to Penang so many times and guess what… It’s my first time having their white curry mee. We went to Hot Bowl White Curry Mee located at 58-C, Jalan Rangoon, 10400 Penang. Their off day is on Monday.
White curry mee is indeed white. Main ingredient of the broth is sweet and savoury coconut milk.
I forgot to take photo of the chili paste. There’s a container of chili paste for you to add into the broth. You can adjust the spiciness based on how spicy you can tolerate. Don’t be too generous, start little and build it up. I added very little(just few drops) and it was so spicy, if you cannot take the heat, I guess you’ll have to forego the chili paste. However, the ommph will not be there because the chili paste really level up the taste of the broth. If I did not have a cough that time, I would have added more.
The special thing about this curry mee is that you can find coagulated duck blood as one of the ingredients. Tofu puffs, prawns, cuttlefish, cockles, a mix of vermicelli and yellow noodles made up the rest of this dish. Small bowl is priced at RM5.90 while the big bowl is RM6.90.
Truth to be told, I prefer this than Penang Laksa and Har Mee.
Aside from white curry mee, we also ordered other dishes, Meatball Soup and Ipoh Hor Fun with Boneless Steamed Chicken.
Do try this dish out when you are in Penang. This is just one of the places that served this dish. I believe you can find it easily around Penang.
