Mee Udang, Pulau Aman

Kuay Teow Udang Special

Seafood meals are best eaten with a group of friends, especially when crabs and prawns are involved. There’s just something about peeling prawns and digging into luscious flakes of crab flesh – and it’s somehow tastier when you’re eating in a group.

Rumah Terapung Pulau Aman

That was what rif and I did when we visited Penang last month. We went to Pulau Aman with a group of friends for a supposed seafood lunch of prawns, crabs and mantis prawns. Alas, our luck ran out as there were no more mantis prawns or crabs left when we arrived. And the fishermen have yet to return with a new batch.

Fishermen boats

So we opted to eat as the locals did, and ordered the mee udang (with broth) and mee goreng udang (dry version). You can opt for the normal plate (RM6) or splurge on the special plate (RM10); obviously, we went for the latter. 😀 There’s an option of kuay teow, vermicelli and yellow noodles for your mee udang, and if you’re a rice person, they also serve nasi goreng udang.

Juicy prawns and a squeeze of lime to give the noodles more zing.

My kuay teow udang special was pretty good stuff – sweet, tasty broth and juicy, just-cooked prawns. A squeeze of lime added zing to the noodles. rif went for the bihun goreng udang (RM6), cooked with slices of fishcake, vegetables and prawns. Not bad, but I prefer my noodles to his.

Verdict: I didn’t think the mee udang was fantastic but it was tasty. I wouldn’t mind coming back if I’m around the area.
