Edgecumbe Mee Goreng

I was told this is one of the famous mee goring in town apart from the Esplanade & Bangkok Lane. Though I have not tried both of these mentioned. But it was very famous back in 1980s, and they were located in Edgecumbe Road which is off lane of Kelawai Road. That time, the customers will stand next to the smelly drain just to savour this famous mee goreng.

But seriously how many of us know this stall was originated from the Padang Brown? Well, I was told that time they were waned due to change of traffic flow in Padang Brown, then they shifted to Edgecumbe Road. Then from there they moved over to Kompleks Makanan Persiaran Gurney.

What’s surrounding the stall, they have Mamak’s Rojak aka Pasembur.

Drinks stall like Coconut drinks and even the cooling one like this…

Ais Kacang! This would be the best selling during this season, the El Nino attacks season. Right?

They were also featured in RasaRasa & also NST.

Though many had find them drop in their standards, however, once the master chef had left the place, some how the quality of the food will be slightly affected. And customers should anticipate that.

This is the plate that hubby had order. It looks so red, and I could only taste chili. It isn’t that bland or tasteless like others had mentioned. If one would willing to improve the quality of food and the hygiene of the stall perhaps that would give this plate of mee goreng a better taste.

Well, I may be wrong,… well, if one do not take the initiative, ended up the business will be slowly waned.

Here’s the price list of the additional, down from ordinary to special taste and squid only.

Honestly, I don't quite like mee goreng or mee rebus, but I like Pasembur. :)

Hmm.. I wondered why you did not try the Mee Manja along Jalan Hutton instead. It's a different way of cooking but real nice.

Most of the Pasembor in Penang got some standard. I don't mind eating anywhere to satisfy my cravings.

This stall allows u to add on ingredients. They pass you a plate and you pick your favorite add-on then they will fry it together with the mee. :D Very long time no patron this outlet.

I never try it before. But after eyeing at the ice-kacang, I think I better have some soon. ^-^

oppositely the ice kacang photo is very tempting, probably recently too hot... making me thirsty and wanna grab it :-)

It seems like there are a lot of contradiction feedback about this stall. For my opinion of the mee here it taste great, but when I post up to my blog there are a lot of people say that it's no go. I think may be this stall is not cook by the original owner most of the time and at that the time I ordered it was cooked by Haji, which is the original owner. I am quite lucky :)

Gosh .. I just realised I've never done a review on mamak stalls before. Perhaps it's time I started one ....
