Going Local – Malaysian Curry Mee

by Rosemarie John on February 26, 2012

Uniquely Malaysian, the Curry Mee is a dish made out of yellow egg noodles and a spicy coconut curry that is topped off with loads of bean curd, shredded pork and seafood. Found mostly in every Chinese coffee shop around the corner, the quality and quantity of ingredients can somewhat vary.

For the best bowl of Curry Mee topped of with a generous serving of seafood, visit Yu Ai Restaurant, a simple eatery located in the middle of a residential area in Petaling Jaya.

Known for their authentic flavour and thick coconut curry, a standard bowl of Curry Mee at Yu Ai would cost approximately MYR15 (USD 4.97). Serving only seafood like large prawns, slices of fish, mussels, cuttlefish and clams with their mee, each mouthful is nothing but satisfying. MYR15 for a bowl of Curry Mee may be considered pricey for some, however the restaurant remains packed during lunch and dinner time. Find out why for yourself.

Not for the faint hearted, this fiery dish is a must try when in Malaysia. Open daily from 11am to 9.30pm, Yu Ai Restaurant is located at No. 58 Jalan SS2/10, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia.

Gave me heart burn just looking at and reading about it 😉

I went there a few times. Quite too pricey for an every day’s meal but good enough for one of those once-in-a-blue-moon lunches or dinners. SS2 in PJ used to offer a lot back then but seems like it has lost a big chunk of its charms now. Many stalls closed. SS2 in Wangsa Maju offers more I guess. 🙂

It may be considered pricey… but you won’t find that much of seafood and condiments in a curry mee that cost less. I doubt I could eat Curry Mee everyday…. but yes you are right, I would consider this place for my once a month Curry Mee fix 🙂

My girlfriend, who hates seafood, accidentally ordered a bowl of seafood Curry Mee – she did not like it when she went to take a bite and she saw a tentacle! Fortunately she liked a chicken one a lot better.

Oh yes, the chicken curry mee is delicious too, however you will not find it in this particular shop.
