One of the popular curry mee stalls on the island. The soup is not spicy and you can adjust the spiciness to your own preference with the chilly paste provided. You have a choice of normal or huge prawns which cost a lot more per bowl. We have been returning here over the years and the taste is still as... More

Went for a try of Curry Mee at Lorong Seratus Tahun as our usual favourite was closed that day. It was just okay, the soup was sweet and not Spicy even after we added many spoonfuls of the curry paste. The yellow mee was overcooked, way too soft. Small portion too. Maybe not our cup of tea...

This particular hawker food is unique to Penang folks. Made of very light coconut soup base which is near white in colour earning it the name of Penang White Curry. The secret is in the chilly paste. Thus one have a really is very aromatic with rich spices fragrance. It is noodles and topping it up with cockles, prawns, pig's... More

Overall a great experience and need not have to wait for too long for food to be serve on the table. Curry mee is unique compared with others which I had tasted before. Another added advantage was it was a only 3 minutes drive from the hotel I stay. Will definitely a must visit if you are in Penang

Delicious curry mee. Cost rm5.50 per bowl. The curry/chili paste has a fragrant coconut taste and is what makes the bowl of noodles delicious.

The curry mee was above average and quite tasty. I happened to chance by this area about 9 momths ago and saw quite a number of people eating curry mee at the kopitiam there. If I were to pass by again, i would have another bowl, but similar standards can be found in a number of places in George Town.... More

This is our first time to be here for breakfast. There are quite full, but can manage to find a table. The curry mee is considered SO-SO ( accepted level ) only. The price is quite high , rm9.50 for big bowl. Normal is rm5.50. More importantly, it is not really worth it for the taste.

We found the place easily on Waze. We each ordered a bowl, food came super fast and tasted exactly like how we imagined. Noodles in a bland santan soup with scalded prawns, cockles, strips of cuttle fish, coagulated pork blood and beansprouts - no surprises, no ego until you add a dollop of the signature fiery sambal. Nice but not... More
