Video : Tanjong Tokong Curry Mee

Here is another video from Penang Street Foods. This time I captured the Tanjong Tokong curry mee seller near the Hai Choo Garden. Hai Choo Garden or Sea Pearl Garden is more famous for its crabs and prawns. However, if you have time to take a short walk around the area, you will see many of the ethnic Chinese families living their daily lives like playing mahjong, drinking at the tiny coffee shop, hanging around talking, mending their nets and fishing.

This curry mee is nothing special but it is so local so I decided to sacrifice standing in the hot sun, eating the bowl of equally hot curry mee for the sake of taking this video. Ahh…what a food blogger won’t do for an extra blog post…

The chap is totally clueless what is internet and what is blog. I told him he is famous because blogs mentioned about his curry mee but he totally has no reaction. Maybe I should burn a copy of this as a video and give to him.

    Thanks for this scene from Tanjong Tokong. While this curry mee may be simple fare, the image of a roadside hawker preparing noodles while talking to a customer is timeless Penang.

    The next time you see him, you can let him know that your video showing him preparing mee has been seen by people around the world—including Connecticut, USA—over the internet!
