Curry Mee Stall at Restoran Kar Kui @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

This entry is about a Curry Mee stall that is located in Restoran Kar Kui. This restaurant is situated right beside the old Rex Cinema along Jalan Loke Yew in Tanjung Malim. I have heard my father mentioning to me a number of times that the Curry Mee here is quite good but this would be my first time trying this myself. 

Restoran Kar Kui Along Jalan Loke Yew
This restaurant has a number of vendors and different vendors servicing customers during the day and another set of vendors from evening onwards. It is sad to know the fate of this place as it would be demolished come August this year as the plot of land had been purchased by a new owner recently who is planning on putting up a multi story building. 

The Curry Mee Stall

Owner Busy Preparing The Dishes

Continuous Flow Of Customers
This man operates this stall from around 1 pm till about 9.30 pm . If the food get's sold out earlier, then the stall is closed much earlier, ahead of it's official hours. I have not tried the morning vendors Curry Mee to be honest but was informed by my father as well as some friends that this guy's preparation is much better. He sells Curry Mee, Prawn Mee, Mee Soup and Kon Low Mee. Assisted by his wife, the team of two very much run the entire show. I was here rather late this evening, sometime around 9 pm and he was already starting to pack his things. I asked him if he could fix me a quick bowl of Curry Mee and he obliged. That is so nice of him. With that, I went to get a place at one of the tables. 

Herbal Tea @ RM 1.30
Once seated, the landlord came over to my table to get my drink's order and I ordered a glass of Herbal Tea that was priced at RM 1.30 per glass. The price is the norms around town and the drink was concentrated, sufficiently iced and refreshingly good. I would rate this drink at 8.9/10 .

Curry Mee @ RM 4.00
The Curry Mee was sent over to my table in less than 10 minutes and this was accompanied by some Chili Paste and Soy Sauce on the sides.

Curry Mee @ RM 4.00
This is the small portion and it was priced at RM 4.00 . This bowl was filled with goodness. Lots of Tofu, Char Siew, Fried Wan Ton's and a handful of Mee served in a thick and delicious curry. As with any bowl of Curry Mee, the most important ingredient is their curry. If it slacks, then the entire dish slacks. Here, his curry was simply perfect and the lavish add on's were a definite bonus. A fantastic preparation and I am very impressed with this dish! I find it to be truly cheap bearing in mind the amount of additional add on's that have been added and the quality of preparation. Definitely one that deserves a rating of 9.8/10 .

Chili Paste and Soy Sauce
The Soy Sauce was just the commonly found Soy Sauce, nothing much to mention about it. The Chili Paste however was quite good and matched the bowl of curry perfectly well. It also emanated good flavours and enhanced the dish. I would rate this at 9/10 .

Overall, I am very pleased with my meal. I find this bowl of Curry Mee to be rather good with perfectly balanced flavours and spices. One that I would highly recommend. Definitely a good place to come for a quick delicious meal.
