Hot Bowl White Curry Mee

Walking through the wet market in Pulau Tikus makes us hungry again so we went to Jalan Rangoon, Penang to eat White Curry Mee.

The broth of the curry mee is white in colour as above. The sambal (a mixture of chili and shrimp paste) is provided in containers on the tables so you can take as much sambal as you like to turn the white broth into a red chili broth. You can choose to omit any of the items that you don't want such as blood cockles, duck blood, squid, beancurd puff (tofu pok) and etc.

The price for a regular bowl including 6% GST is MYR4.77 nett and for a big bowl = MYR5.83 nett.

The chicken meat and skin is very smooth and juicy. It is drizzled with soy sauce and sesame oil. This deboned chicken portion for two pax costs MYR12.72 nett. A glass of plain water with ice cubes costs MYR0.53 nett.

Storefront - their tagline is "The test is in the taste". If you are early, you can park your car directly in front of the eatery.

  3. Penang white curry! Mix the sambal and it will not be white anymore, will look just like curry. Not my favourite in Penang, so-so with the Penang Hokkien prawn mee too - I'd go for the char kway teow and the kway teow th'ng.

  9. When they say White Curry Mee, it really is white until you mix the sambal in! ;D Oh, this place serves it with duck blood instead of pig blood. I see a bowl without blood cockles and duck blood...that must be your bowl! :D

  11. I know the chicken must be good but what about the white curry mee? I'm afraid it doesn't look appetizing to me. I'm more used to the red one.

    1. It will be red once you put in lots of sambal into the broth. The duck blood and blood cockles made it taste good.

  12. To be honest, I have never seen white curry before until that instant noodles came out. Penang curry mee then Penang curry mee lah, suddenly got Penang white curry mee... I think most curry mee in Penang is the same lah, just that those hawkers serve to you with the chili and sambal paste mixed in already. :|

    1. That's the difference between Penang curry and curry broth elsewhere where the red colour in the curry is from the chili and red curry powder and not from the sambal.

  17. Long ago we never heard of white curry mee as they served in red gravy with mild chilly paste inside. What made them so creative to serve them white is amazing! Ha ha
