My Favourite Mee Goreng

I love to eat the Mee Goreng in Penang ever since I was a little boy. There was an Indian seller who used to cycle his cart around the city to sell. His frying was so good and tasty that I could still remember his face clearly until today. He doesn't look like mee goreng.

Over the years, many coffee shops around the island have sprouted up with famous Mee Goreng stalls from Bangkok Lane to Edgecumbe Road until Ayer Itam's roundabout. Never ask Penang Lang where is the best Char Koay Teow, Assam Laksa or Mee Goreng etc. Every single one would tell you all their very best & different answers until my confused tourists from Singapore ended up eating at Gurney Drive!! OMG! I really fainted cos I would never eat at Gurney Drive. My tourist still said it was so yummy. So sad. 



There is a branch of the famous MEE GORENG from Bangkok Lane - Pulau Tikus right here in Petaling Jaya. He is from the same family member as the original stall in Penang. 




This guy has relocated to Ming Tien's Food Court at Bandar Utama. My school mates have been eating from this stall continuously until I had to try it myself.




Wow! I was amazed by his non stop frying with so many orders! The smell was so heavenly nice amidst the loud clanking of his ladle. Kriok! Kriok! Kriok! Kang! Kang!! I was queuing up as the 30th customer! No kidding!




Finally! I got my order inside my own plastic box. I had to eat some right away as the smell was too good. The Wok Hei was there and yummy to eat it when really HOT! It's only RM6.50 for basic Mee Goreng.


***Please do not ask me when was this photo taken and whether everyone observed SOP or wore Masks or have taken their Vaccination Jabs and whether anyone had crossed districts blah bah blah.

    1. You need to eat Penang's Mee Goreng to see the big difference.

  3. I must tell my lahling about this! I know where this food court is. It is at a junction with traffic lights. My lahling told me that previously it was designated as a bus terminal. Must check it out!

    1. I had guessed right that you might not have eaten this. That junction is very busy yet the food court is like hidden with lousy accessibility. I bet your lahling will love that Mee Goreng.

    1. Wah!! Mee Goreng with a piece of luncheon meat sounds better! Here he added sambal sotong. Nice.

  5. You're becoming quite the foodie blogger yourself, TM...with shots of the stall, the cook behind the scene...and, best of all, a shot of the masterchef doing all the fiery goreng goreng action in his big wok (even I would be too shy to take such photos)...fu la wei sedap! ;) If this is a famous mee goreng from Bangkok Lane (that you know & recommend), then this is a must try. Will surely keep it in mind if I'm in the vicinity.

    1. I am still not a good writer for food as you could see how little captions with little explanation as I gobbled the food down without knowing what exactly was the ingredients. Just that I am so thick skinned and would snap any photos by asking him to pose. The best is you could try authentic Mee Goreng in Penang itself. I think this dish originated from Chennai.

    1. In Penang, eating Mee Goreng always raised more eyebrows as it is a very yummy food. Maybe you can order online and heat up in the wok again. Yums!

    1. That Taman Desa one moved to Sri Petaling and I have tried it there. Not sure whether it is still in Sri Petaling. They have another branch in Subang Jaya right now besides BU.

  11. Although it looks oily and fattening, since you recommend it I'll find this place and try it out.
