Outta-the-world mee mamak!@Bangkok Lane, Penang

image

Of the many years I came to work in Penang, I was surprised I never came to meet this awesomeness until that one fine hot week day. After meeting with some customers, just that one hour window frame before the dinner event, my colleague brought me here for early dinner.

The shop seemed really normal looking, but I saw the chef frying away fueled with passion, I knew I was in for something outta dis world.

image

He whipped up an awesome plate of mee mamak, one of the trademark dishes here. The dishes are all halal dishes as the chefs are Indian Muslims. Looked pretty normal dish from the photo eh? But omgosh, the bursting forth of flavours : spicy chilli, sweetened tomatoes, charcoal infused smokeyness , the sauce coated each strand of noodle evenly that every slurp was explosive.

By far, the best mee mamak I had ever tasted. The gluttony in me wanted a second plate order, but we were running out of time. Ohmo!

image

The other trademark dish here was the mee rebus. This time the sauce, dense, creamy, spicy, tumeric, saffron, chilli filled sauce soaked the noodles. Squid slices were added along to accompany the tofus and eggs. We began with a fiery frying start and ended it with a slurpicilious finish!

image

I thought the mee mamak was awesome, the mee rebus was equally awesome. *Face palm* we dug out the golden strips of noodles hidden beneath the bubbling hot gravy unraveling the beauty of this dish, blowing our minds as they enter into our mouths.

Be warned: one spoonful, and you would become unstoppable. all sin and guilt of calories, fat fright and stuffs got to be tossed outta the window of your mind.

If only we had more time, urgh.

Bangkok Lane mee mamak and mee rebus. You struck my heart like Mr Cupid and his arrow of love. I’ll be back for you soon!

Back for more Fiercer goodness@Fiercer Curry House, Publika

image

I fell in love with the northern indian food served here and had been back several times ever since.

Tonight, I am back for more Fiercer goodness! One tandoori chicken please!

Grilled to juicy tender charcoal perfection. The meat was so tender, 4 pieces was just not enough! RM15.

image

It may not look very pretty, but these grilled eggplant slices were filled with so much Wok Hei. The texture was just nice, not too hard and not overly soggy. Vegetarian diners should come here for their veg dishes too!

image

This mutton briyani is a must-have for any Fiercer patron! Each elongated rice pellet was nicely coated with full fragrance and aromatic spices. The tender mutton chunks were all hidden underneath, cooked and absorbing all the fragrant rice aroma. Danger zone for diet watchers!

image

Naans are also another must-have here. By far the best naans I ever ate in my life. Fluffy on the inside, crunchy on the outside with strong confident aroma of charcoal. This dish on its own can lift you up happy high.

Total damage per pax for 4person, was about RM 23. Worth every penny as the quality of food here is top notch.

Fiercer, I will be back for you soon!
