White Curry Mee @ O´Penang, Ikano Power Centre

1 comment:

I´ve had my fair share of miss vs hit when choosing a place to eat in a shopping mall especially a neighbourhood mall such as Ikano Power Centre. But like the locals, try something new if you spot one and O´Penang that is!

The menu as I recall is not too bad.  From typical Penang offering such as Char Kuey Teow to Prawn Mee, it was pretty extensive if I remember correctly.  But one offering stood out and that is the Penang White Curry Mee which took Malaysian´s instant noodle world by storm.

I was quite appalled  by its pale appearance when it arrived.  It was white! And not in a good way.  A quick taste of the soup before mixing the killer chilli in proved to reconfirmed my initial reaction.  It was light, too light infact as I can´t detect much coconut milk flavour.  The chilli paste they provided elevated it a bit.  The spiciness is there, but I can´t help feeling sorry for all the tofupok, seeham, boiled egg, noodles and the likes because it could have been more flavourful.  Will I try them again? Perhaps not.  But, I will give their other dishes a try when I fly back in few months time.

Cendol is good though ...

Chilli Pan Mee @ Face to Face Noodle House Taman Mayang

No comments:

The Great Grandfather of Face to Face Noodle House chain owner learned how to make noodles traditionally in Hong Kong before starting on his own in Sarawak later.  If I am the Great Grandfather, I would be very proud today of what his grandson/daughter have achieved.  Their noodles were done right.  It is a pity that the chain is so low profile.

Kin Kin made a name for herself with their Chilli Pan Mee.  While I have not tasted the real thing, I thought these were already good.  Apart from the noodle, the chilli plays such an important role and I really did wish that I could buy a bottle of it back to enjoy.  But no, they don´t sell them.

So lucky you Klang Valley folks ...
