To most people including yours truly, Brickfields is famous for two things: Traditional Blind Massage Centres and Banana Leaf Rice. So when Eric told me about the famous pork noodle there, I was more that curious to check it out. Unfortunately, lady luck wasn’t on our side when the pork noodle stall was already closing when we arrived at around 1:30 p.m. a few weeks ago. But luckily for us, the curry mee stall which is equally famous was still open and I decided to give it a try.
Apparently, the Curry Mee stall has be around for 15 years. Operated by two sisters, they are both affable when I had a chat with them.
Admittedly, I like my curry noodle to have the thick santan (coconut milk) taste. The Curry Mee at this stall however has an ‘old school’ taste to it.
It is neither concentrated with thick coconut milk texture nor too diluted without curry flavour. Instead what you get is a decent bowl of curry noodle that is not too spicy with a lot of ingredients thrown inside.
At RM 5.50 per bowl (large), the stall owners certainly did not skimp on the portion of noodles, fish balls, fish cake, taufu pok, long beans and shredded chicken.
There was also no hint of ajinomoto in the soup as my throat didn’t feel dry after finishing the meal.
What I did experience however was a satisfying belly full of curry soup in my stomach after that.
