Curry Mee @ Chulia Street

Thinking about home, I had a sudden craving for a bowl of warm and spicy curry mee. Curry mee as I’ve explained before is a bowl of rice vermicille and yellow noodles with bean sprouts in spiced curry broth; topped with cockles, dried tofu, prawns, cuttlefish and hardened pig blood. One of the best curry mee I’ve tasted is in Chulia Street; the same place the best wantan mee I’ve had is (this place is amazing for supper).

A bowl of curry mee here comes with an additional topping of fish ball. The noodles are soaked in a curry broth which has a strong kick of spices and at the same time, a fragrant scent of coconut milk which gives a slightly creamy (lemak) texture to the broth. Although I often find the noodles a little overcooked and soft, the noodles were probably soaking in the broth for a bit too long when I eat them. The toppings consist only of cuttlefish, dried tofu, cockles, harden pig blood and a fish ball. The toppings are definitely not very generous but the extremely delicious curry broth makes up to it. Often the key to a good bowl of noodles lies in the broth.

Find this stall for a gastronomical satisfaction

Being extremely popular and famous, this stall is not one which customers can request for additional toppings or ask for some things to be removed. Often all the extra demands are just ignored completely. As usual, be ready for a 10-15 minutes wait and reminding the seller if they forget the orders.

Open from about 7.30 pm and closed on Mondays.

The stall is located just right beside the wantan mee stall which I previously blogged about. Location information can be found here.
