If you want a local Penang version of loh mee, you can visit Kim Leng Loh Mee at Restoran Joo Huat at Perak Road Penang.
1119 Curry Mee Stall at Joo Huat Cafe is one of the curry mee selling in Penang that served non-santan (no coconut milk) at their base. The taste of the curry mee is as good as those that have included santan and it is packed with nostalgic and classic flavor. The blood cockles are fresh and juicy, while the soup is thick and aromatic, and the chili paste is packed with pungent. Overall the curry mee is worth the taste
The pancake taste good, the outer layer of the pancake is crunchy and the ingredient inside it is good too, though simple but I like it.
Small bowl at RM 3.80 is really a good bargain. Filled with classic ingredients such as chicken feet, pig skin, pig intestine, herbal egg, special home blend garlic vinegar sauce and also chili paste. Love the starchy soup base with a bit of saltiness and sweetness to my liking as the amount of vinegar garlic is just nice and could be better if slightly stronger.
The gravy is definitely the one that makes Kim Leng loh mee unique. The thick gravy is flavourful and gives a bit hint of sweetness. It is very inviting. Next, KayaButter love its braised eggs, very well marinated. You can add extra ingredients as you like such as the chicken legs, braised eggs, meats and internal organs. Internal organs are not KayaButter’s favourite, so we ask them to exclude that in our loh mee. Oh ya, the loh mee also comes with pork’s skin.
Despite of its popularity, the service is prompt and the staff are very friendly. Serving from breakfast, as early as 7 am through lunch and closed on Thursdays.
Overall, the taste of the food was great and the pricing was reasonable. However, the drawback of this place is there are not many parking space and also the coffeeshop is always full. Therefore, for those who want to avoid the crowd please visit this place earlier.
The Loh Mee is served with sliced pork, pig skin, egg, chicken feet, pork intestine and garnished with garlic and chili sauce. The thick broth is very flavorful and very delicious. (Rate: 4/5)
