When I was looking for curry noodle (or Kari Mee) for breakfast, I always think about Ah Hong Curry Noodle in Li Yuan coffee shop or the Ms Ooi Curry Noodle in Wa Hong Café. Why? Both of the café is located on my journey path to work. A slight De-tour might be needed, but it is ok. In Wa Hong Café in Kampong Jawa, there is a lot of good food there. I have written a review on Hainanese Chicken rice. I have planned to write a review on the char kuey teow stall and the roast duck stall. Today, we are going to discuss more on Ms Ooi’s curry noodle.
Wa Hong café is located on the corner lot to the left of Public bank. Inside Wa Hong café, there are around 8 hawker stalls that sell food within. For breakfast, only limited stall is open for business. The dining table and chair is simple. They are no dinning setting like folk and spoon that pre-arranged on top of the table. When you purchase the food from the stall, they will provide the necessary folk and spoon that needed.
How does the food taste?
Ms. Ooi serves Penang white curry where it curries soup is white in color. Normally, it will come with a spoon of curry paste which is going to mix with the soup to complete the curry noodle setting. Please ensure that you mix the curry paste on the spoon with the soup, else the overall taste will be very odd. Ms Ooi has created its own Penang white curry recipe and she has been selling curry noodle in Wa Hong Café for more than 10 years time.
For me, I normally ordered the curry noodle which only consists of tofu balls only. In above picture, you can only saw the noodle, curry paste, bean sprouts and the tofu balls.
Upon mixing the curry paste with the soup, you have just created the Penang Kari Mee. The overall taste is mild and less spicy when compare to Ah Hong Kari Mee. The dish is less oily too. Topped with some mints leaf, it does create a minty Kari mee which made by Ms. Ooi’s recipe.
