One of our famous Penang Street food is also Mee Goreng. Of course there is this Famous Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng now have move to a new location right after 50 years of operating in the kopitiam at Bangkok Lane. I am more happy for them to move to this new location, New World Park foodcourt or known as New World Park Food City.
One main reason is of course Parking. Penang is very strict of parking. If you simple park, your car either got towed or got tayar lock. In this new location also you will be offer huge array of other Penang famous street food and my personal favourite stall are at the end of the post
They have just move to this new location since 1st September. It is hard not to notice them as you will be seeing alot of ppl queuing or ordering. They are operating right the corner lot of the hawker lot.
for all Penang Kia if you do not know how to speak Malay or English, the owner is well verse in Hokkien. You can just order Mee Goren “chit pua” or he can also talk to you everything in Hokkien.
Price I believe still remain the same and it had been ages since I last this Mee Goreng. Because at their old location I lazy park at the market and walk over which is about 5-10 minutes walk.
Happy that i got the owner to fry my plate. Now he is training his nephew to master the art of mee goreng his style.
Here is my pippin hot Mee Goreng Sotong at RM 6. Must definately squeeze lime on it to enhance the taste. Mine is extra spicy as I always love my CKT and Mee Goreng Extra spicy to give you the kick of it.
There are variety of Mee Goreng style in Penang. For Bangkok lane, theirs is on the dry side, yet you can taste abit of Wok Hei. The spiciness of sotong and chewiness of it just to my liking. Complete this with nutmeg juice or ice kacang is just perfect.
By the way, the famous Ice Kacang in New World Park have move all the way to the front as an independent shop already. Same place just walk all the way to the front facing main road.
Other of my favourite which I usually will come here tapau before I go back KL is this Yam Rice, then Penang Hokkien Mee next to it or to KL ppl is known as HAr Mee. This untie had been selling for 40 years and one of my favourite. No continuation if she are unable to operate anymore. Enjoy while you can.
Penang Mee Jawa from this young operator also one of my favourite. Or one of the best I come accross cuz he usees fresh lemon juice to enhance the taste of sourness. Just to my liking.
Another 2 stall is the Fried Fritters (CUCUR Udang) at the end of the shop operate by another Indian. His fried fritters with his own special sauce is to die for. This you can’t tapau have to eat fresh.
Next to the stall got 1 stall sell Bak Chang: their Yam CAke is to die for.
