What?! Curry Mee AGAIN?!! (Kafe Tim’s Curry Mee @ Medan Ipoh Bistari, Ipoh)February 20, 2009 | 2,429 views
A friend recommended this place in Ipoh for the supposedly delicious curry noodles, beating Nam Chau’s and Yee Fatt’s hands down. WHAT?! For real?!!! (Note of bias here …. I’m a die-hard fan of Nam Chau’s dry curry noodles. Sinfully rich, and bursting with curry goodness ….sigh …. =P)
Kafe Tim’s version of dry curry failed to impress, however. The curry wasn’t rich enough for me, possibly holding back on the gravy, and the coconut milk used to cook the curry. Halfway through my plate of dry curry flat rice noodles (kuey teow), I was practically slurping on “Kon Lou Hor Fun“, instead of “Kon Kari Hor Fun.“
The soup version fared much better however, the curry exuded a very strong prawn flavour, possibly prawn shells were used in the stock. The curry’s a bit spicier than the others I’ve mentioned. The addition of cuttlefish (yau yue) is a refreshing change, offering a springy bite as opposed to the usual roast pork (siew yoke), and chicken shreds.
