Penang Lor Mee comes with braised meat ingredients with robustly savory starchy gravy flavored with five-spice powder and egg white. The different spices in the flavorful and pungent gravy is what that enticed the taste of the Lor Mee. Hubby and I came across a Lor Mee stall at Lean Thye Coffee Shop which occupied the corner shop house in Ah Quee Street.

I like having my Lor Mee by mixing the gravy with some red chili sauce and finely minced garlic…not too much of the garlic as it will changes its flavor. The combination of the sauces gives this dish additional flavor.

The gravy is extremely fragrant with the different spices and ingredients used. The thickness of the gravy coats the yellow noodles very well.

We added two extra braised hard boiled eggs…the eggs are actually duck eggs. The egg tasted really good with its outer layer much firm and chewy. This extra order also comes with the lor gravy. I find the taste of Lor Mee gravy quite similar to the thick Lor sauce of the hawker food, Lorbak.

Add-on ingredients :
Pork RM1
Duck egg RM1
Three layer pork RM2

The owner, Ah Kheng has been selling Lor Mee for around fifteen years around town before settling down in Lean Thye coffee shop in Ah Quee Street. Ah Kheng’s stall is the only one occupying the coffee shop. Usually in the morning, the coffee shop is filled with customers just waiting for their bowl of Lor Mee from him.

I know some friends are put-off by food with thick and slimy texture such as Lor Mee and Penang popular Hokkien dish, Bak Kee but hubby and I personally do enjoyed eating all of them. He was slurping away his bowl of Lor Mee until the last drop of gravy.

Wow! Looks thick and yummy! It’s hard to find thick broth of lor mee in KL! :(

November 5th, 2009 at 4:16 pm

:p I’m never a fan of lor mee, guess that reveals that I’m not truly a Penangnite huh. :p
But if mix with some hokkien mee soup, I can accept that :)
Do they have this?

Food Paradise – There are a few nice lor mee stalls in town.

Ming Na – The noodle is that smooth, coated with the lor gravy.

NKOTB – If you are accessing from Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, Ah Quee street is directly opposite the Masjid Kapitan Keling Mosque.

Big Boys Oven – Must try out the duck eggs…yummy.

SimpleGirl – Indeed plenty of food to eat in Pg but can always squeeze in a small bowl of lor mee too.

email2me – I am waiting to see how you do that :)

November 5th, 2009 at 9:18 pm

Little Inbox – Go over to this place at Ah Quee Street to try some, but not on Sunday.

J2Kfm – The gravy is very flavorful and pungent, do give it a try one day…maybe you might like it.

iamthewitch – It is quite easily found in Penang but not many are good.

allie – This stall only sell lor mee so there are no mixing with hokkien mee soup.

Nice photo shooting. Simple dish, but brings great satisfaction. :)

There is one Lor Mee store located in a coffee shop behind Fima(now Giant) which I find to be the best that I have tasted so far.One thing unique about this store is that it comes with “sambal” and free flow of garlic source.Do try if you happened to be around that area in the morning.It closes at about 1pm daily.

Hi CK Lam, long time din login ur blog liao…
Oh, this Loh mee stall is my breakfast time almost I’ll enjoy it every week day before working. This stall loh mee is the second generation as I ate it was an old man to do it, but since tht old man stop selling & pass to this young man to continue the business… …
For me, I do like last time old man cooking taste as compare with recent one, coz I like the soft taste compare with now are using more black vineger. Of coz, the duck egg is the most important thing in Loh mee as well… hahahaha… … That why last week I saw ur web page address on white board of this stall loh… … hahaha… …

this is the most nice lor mee in penang that i ever try…the less hair guy(the guy) really sensitive for the taste of food…he keep changing the taste to be famous for all the customer can accept and unforgetable taste! the duck egg really fragrance and the gravy sticky and yummy til the last scoop. aiyo,really think to get one now:)
as i know,he didn’t put black vinegar cause i sensitive and unlike if got put vinegar and somemore if the gravy mix with vinegar the taste will change be sour….however,how nice the taste we keep talk is useless,so try it own then you will know how good until hard to describe… for my suggestion,u can reserve or call up before go,because it mostly finish early…u will not regret if you never try if you are lor mee fans..:p

U all should give it a try Lor mee sold at Super Tanker which is located at Lip Sin, Penang. It’s superb.
