Going Local – Malaysian Curry Mee

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.
