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.

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!

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!

The Nasi Lemak-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named@Village Park Nasi Lemak, Damansara Uptown PJ

image

Joysie’s in town and camped over my place for the weekend. While talking about what to eat for breakfast, she said the forbidden word….the nasi lemak that must not be named. Because once you said it, you have to eat it. That!…is the power of Village Park’s nasi lemak.

Knowing that it would be packed on weekends, we hurried to get ready and zoomed out to VP. Took us a while to get a seat and our food…but hey, it was all worth it! Joysie was beaming with happiness, so was I!

image

There is just something…magical…about this plate of rice with fried chicken…

image

Madly long queue all the way to the shops next door. The dark lord nasi lemak has surely cast a powerful spell upon all of us! We are willing to sweat and toil to get our hands on the nasi lemak.

P/S: there is another queue inside the shop. This is the only shop I know so far where the people are willing to queue to pay the bill, and the queue can be as long as the queue for food.

image

It was so packed on our trip here this time that the chicken pieces ran out! None on the stall, none on the plates. Good thing for the chicken chopper behind the counter. His arms could rest for a good 10 minutes.

Madness indeed! Madness for the love of Village Park’s nasi lemak.
