Hokkien Lor Noodles

So this may not be the best Penang Prawn Mee aka Mee Yoke aka Penang Hokkien Mee outside of the state. Nevertheless it deserves mention for serving the two distinct soup base when combined, satisfies my Penangite-ness. This stall in the coffeshop offers Penang Lor Mee better known as the dark sauced Lam Mee in Kuala Lumpur besides the former. Combine the prawn-y broth (reddish in picture) and gooey one (the darker part) in a bowl, we will get what Penangites call Hokkien Lor! New to you? Then I've achieved the point of this short post. *pat self* Seriously, do try when possible at stalls which sell both. Satu harga dua rasa, memang berbaloi!

Phitoy, not a Penangite obviously, preferred to order the more conventional. He ordered from a hot favourite stall here. Its business was so good that queue plaques have to be given out.
Mixed Pork Noodles (vermicelli).Verdict:- what's the fuss about?

The corner coffee shop in at Bandar Puchong Baru (across the main road from IOI Mall) and looked like this:-

looks delicious, I also found out that if you add a tablespoon vinegered minced garlic into your Lam Mee it is delicious.

fezzaboy, you biasa sini buat apa? What is pork noodle without lardy lard lard?

big boys oven, oooo I load those up when eating pure Penang Lor Mee too.

jackson & tankiasu, try jangan tak try. Ada ummphh!

nic(khkl), me too but quite difficult to find in KL. Usually 'khe-liau' here means bigger prawns.
