White Curry Mee @ O´Penang, Ikano Power Centre


































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 ...
