Oh I love coming back this place… my favorite Curry Mee in Penang. It feels like going down the memory lane. I haven’t been back to Penang for many years. But every time I am in Penang, I gotta try the Air Itam Curry Penang. These lovely ladies (both sisters) have been here for many years and have not moved any where else. They are superstitious to move? They have been using charcoal to boil the soup and that’s the difference from any curry mee. It is heavenly delicious. Beside Curry Mee, there is also fried mee hoon (dry) available. Some customers would usually ask for some of the Curry Mee soup on the dry noodles or the chillies/cuttlefish. (Note: Some may find the place a little unhygenic but just keep one eye shut… you’ll be fine.)
Meet the ladies*. Would you believe these ladies still remember my mom? (over 25 years, right Mom?)
*permission was given to take photos of these ladies 😀

This Curry Mee spot is located next to a river and close to the market. You gotta try it if you are in Penang.
