Finally I step foot at this famous place, Lorong Seratus Tahun Curry Mee. I never knew its so damn near to my father's work place.

I thought the place would be packed with people. Maybe its still early.

This stall is located at a street directly opposite Red Rock hotel.

Looks fiery hot? I assure you, its not. This is their signature style. Every table would have a bowl of this chili and you add it to your noodles on your own. The chili was good. Not bitter and super fragrant. You can take a bit and taste it on its own.

This is my bowl of curry mee with added coagulated pig's blood. Normal serving would cost RM3.80 Love the look of those ingredients on my noodles.

Looks good and taste good. The soup is sweet and smooth. This is because they used prawn as their soup base with minimal santan. However, I still remember my first time trying the noodle at PISA's Penang Street Food Fest. The prawn broth was more prominent.

Be there early to avoid disappointment :)

Happy drooling~

    The curry mee here is not my favourite at all... maybe my tastebud prefers savoury as the soup base here is pretty sweet in nature..

    I like the curry mee at New World Park better :)

    Cheryl Wee:

    i also havenot tried this b4. though you can find this brand (dunno branch or not) in KL also.

    Minimal santan ah? So does that mean it's quite mild and yo have to add the chilli paste according to your preference?

  10. email2me // January 12, 2009 at 9:34 PM  

    They have a branch in SS2 PJ near my office. Although is the brother that selling it, the taste cannot compare with the on in Penang. The soup base cannot fight and luckily the chili taste exactly the same which can do some cover up.

    oh yes the curry mee is nice, I like the chili. yum yum. for KL people, they might not like it because they prefer their curry laksa which is MUCH thicker lol.

    J2Kfm:
    Yupz. email2me is right. Same ppl selling. I saw in newspaper.

    Jason:
    ya mild and you can add the whole bowl of chili if you want. Chili as good as kin kin.

    email2me:
    The soup base will be different definitely because only Penang has the main ingredient needed.Go KL d no such prawn selling.

    vkeong:
    Oh ya kari laksa. So thick cannot eat everyday lah. Besides its not the santan that matters. Hahaha I think Lorong Seratus Tahun Curry mee is the only stall using prawn base soup.

    For the interest of those Curry Mee lovers, I repost here what I had commented earlier:

    This curry mee stall was very famous, dubbed the best in Penang in the 70s. It operated from the backlane behind the seller’s house at Lorong Seratus Tahun those days.

    The patriach was a very rude man and the story was his tricycle cart was overturned by some furious customers in the 70s. From that time, the wife was running the show. The standard dropped.

    They have 3 sons.

    One selling opposite Anson Road market, called Tasty Coffee Shop, the same row as the former New City Pub.

    Another son, Ah Kong is now doing this flourishing business in style having his own cafe at SS2, PJ.

    The PJ address is:

    Lorong Seratus Tahun Curry Mee
    56, Jalan SS2/66, 47300 PJ Selangor

    A son is operating with his mom at the location of the photograph above, opposite Kin Too Hotel.

    The standard could not match their father’s time.

    The patriach has 2 other brothers.

    The eldest brother was selling inside Anson Road Market, the youngest was operating at the junction coffee shop of Perak Road and Macalister Road.

    The latter had retired because his son refused to take over this good business; instead ventured into selling hotdogs.

    One thing special about this Macalister Road brother’s curry mee was in his fried prawns and chillies. Wow, terrific and fantastic!

    But, the madness was this guy charged RM1.20, RM1.30… RM2.20. in the 70s. OMG, how did he managed his wares by a mere 10 sen increment?

    I have recently come across one very similar in tastes to the patriach and his youngest brother. Excellent!

    The prawns are not of the same preparation, but of equally good standard too –

    Nite Hawker Centre at Jalan Binjai, Taman Seri Rambai, Bukit Mertajam.

    This centre is at the plot before Café 2007 if one comes from Jalan Tembikai.

    Food Blogger Vkeong has taken this curry mee at Jalan Binjai when schooling from Form 2 – 6. A very good and faithful customer…hahahah
