In Penang definitely you can get a taste of multi-culture delicate. I will introduce to anyone who haven’t get to taste the local mee goreng, grab yourself to Burmah Road and you will find one old kopitiam in the junction with Bangkok Lane (heart of Pulau Tikus). It was one of the best mee goreng in Penang and also one of my favourite.
The usual ingredients of mee goreng such as boiled potatoes, bean sprouts, shrimp cake, egg, tofu and dried cuttlefish, which make the mee goring one of the most memorable local delicate to try if you’re in Penang. With their signature reddish sweet potato gravy, chili souce and tomato souce it make the mee goring so tasteful. It taste sweet, sour and spicy. Many locals and tourists wait patiently everyday just to get a taste of it.
It was serving with a piece of lime. Just before eating, squeeze in some lime juice and mix it all up! I tried without the lime juice it taste a bit different. After added the lime juice it taste wonderfully. But I do have friends which they eat without adding the lime juice.
They have been selling and serving mee goreng for generations and more than 80 years of history. No doubt it was one of the best mee goreng in Penang.
You can smell the aroma of the mee goreng from a distance away from their stall. Everytime I went there and the kopitiam is full of patrons waiting to get a taste of the famous mee goreng. Some waiting in their queue for their take away orders.
