Cheong Kee Curry Laksa, Petaling Street

Curry laksa is one of the things I can eat over and over again without ever getting sick of it. A good bowl can lift my spirits when I’m down, while a disappointing encounter can ruin my mood for the day. Yes, I get quite drama when it’s not tasty or when the auntie gives me yellow noodles instead of hor fun (kuay teow).


Petaling Street Curry Laksa

While I wished the Pudu curry laksa is within walking distance from my office, I find solace in this curry laksa from Petaling Street. I’ve even learnt to eat alone as my colleagues refuse to brave the heat in their work clothes for this.


Sambal chilli and a squeeze of lime makes it yummier!

You get three options (yellow mee, vermicelli and kuay teow) for your laksa, with the standard steamed chicken slices and cockles. They also offer fish ball, fish cake and char siew, which you can add with additional charge of course.


Chicken pieces, cockles and tofu puffs

The broth isn’t thick, but it is flavourful especially when you add a dollop of sambal chilli into it. Half a lime is given for that added oomph, and it really does make a difference. Best part is, the auntie is a lot friendlier that the lady from the other curry laksa shop I go to, and a large bowl only costs RM5.20 (RM4.70 for small). I also find this tastier compared to the curry laksa from Madras Lane.


That’s a small price to pay for a bowl of comfort. Of course, be prepared to sweat if you’re ever going to try this. The stall is located next to the tong sui stall along the small alley (opposite Koon Kei Wantan Mee), where the sweet potato ball stall is at the entrance.

Curry Noodles, Glenmarie


I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about the curry noodles  (curry laksa) in Glenmarie and even spotted a long queue outside the stall when I walked to Meng Kee Char Siew. Finally tried it last week with a few colleagues.



Not a good day to eat curry as I was wearing white, but what the heck! I used some tissue paper to make a little bib so I don’t get curry all over. Mission failed. Because I had one teeny weany curry spot on my shirt. Oh well, at least it wasn’t a noticeable one.

Basically, you need to queue up at the stall and tell the guy what you want – type of noodle, bowl size, cockles or no cockles …


A standard bowl of noodles come with chicken, cockles, bean sprouts and tofu puffs. I added a piece of brinjal yong tau foo and fried wanton into my noodles, and was charged a grand total of RM7.50. Not cheap.


That aside, the curry gravy was aromatic, thick and rich in flavour. Squeeze some lime juice in to give the curry some zest. Pretty decent, but it was quite oily. My mother would have fainted at the sight of so much oil.

If you’re not big on curry noodles, you can try the ridiculously expensive chap fan next to the curry laksa stall. I once paid RM6.50 for a packet of rice with sweet and sour pork and fried sunny side up.

Penang Curry Mee @ Restoran Good Food, Petaling Jaya
November 4, 2011

Penang Curry Mee @ Restoran Good Food, Petaling Jaya

*edit 22 July 2012: The curry mee stall has moved to Restoran Millennium Eighty Six in Paramount Garden.

“This is soup for the soul…” I said to Ken, in between spoonfuls of laksa broth. We met up for a late breakfast/brunch last weekend at coffeeshop called Restoran Good Food in PJ State Old Town. Over dinner the night before, Ken spoke about a good Penang curry mee place and we decided to do brunch there the next day.

Despite eating curry mee very often, I rarely go for Penang curry mee unless I’m in Penang. Also, I find most Penang curry mee in Klang Valley to be lacking in oomph. But Ken assured me the curry mee stall at Good Food is far from bland as the auntie who prepares the broth is a Hokkien from Penang.

My curry mee (RM4.50 – small, RM5 – large) came with tofu puffs, prawns, cockles, cuttlefish and pork blood cubes. The chilli paste was served separately. When mixed together with the noodles, the paste thickened the coconut based soup and gave it a glorious red hue. This was one of the tastiest Penang curry mee I’ve eaten. Aromatic, spicy and sweetish, the chilli paste enhanced the overall flavour of the noodles.  I was told that the auntie uses plenty of prawn heads to prepare the broth, hence the fuller flavour. Shiok!

I don’t like eating pork blood cubes but I did the unthinkable and ate every single piece from this stall. It was not mushy or smelly like some pork blood cubes I’ve tried. Instead, I found it firm and creamy. The cockles were fresh and juicy while the prawns retained its natural sweetness. I polished off the noodles and even asked for extra soup, which the auntie kindly obliged. In Penang, they usually don’t give you extra soup.

rif had the Penang fish ball kuay teow soup from a different stall. His bowl (RM4.50 – small, RM5 – large) came with chicken strips, fish balls and kuay teow noodles. Simple, but decent. The broth had a good balance of savoury and sweet flavour, and was aromatic from the addition of prawn heads. That said, I still prefer the curry mee.

The char kuay teow was said to be good, but sadly, it wasn’t opened that morning. I guess that calls for another visit soon. Thanks Ken, for the recommendation! I look forward to more makan outings with you.

Ambiance: 5/10
Price: 6.5/10
Curry Mee: 7/10
Kuay Teow Soup: 5/10
Verdict: For good Penang curry mee in Klang Valley, this is one of your best bet!
