The Mee Goreng Mamak (Indian Muslim Fried Noodles) is one of the famous dishes that can be found in Penang. It consists of yellow noodles that are fried with special sauces, and ingredients like tofu, potato, tomato, bean sprouts, and usually squid (sotong) as add-on.
The Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng Mamak stall is one of the best in Penang. It is located at Seng Lee Coffee Shop in the Pulau Tikus area. The address is: 280, Jalan Burma, 10250 Georgetown, Penang (at the junction of Burma Road and Bangkok Lane).
I normally go there for breakfast around 9.30AM. It is not crowded during this time.
The mee goreng here looks somewhat red in colour, and has a strong flavour. I would definitely recommend ordering a plate with the squid (sotong) add-on, as it makes the mee goreng taste even better. The noodles are fried one plate at a time, which I believe contributes to the excellent taste.
The Seng Lee Coffee Shop also has a nasi kandar stall (Hussain’s Nasi Kandar), a hokkien mee stall, and a koay teow th’ng (koay teow soup) stall. I tried the hokkien mee before, but its taste was only average. The hokkien mee here definitely cannot compare with the Super Hokkien Mee at One Corner Cafe or the hokkien mee stall in Island Glades.
