Loh Mee is essentially braised noodles and is one of the few hawker dishes that is prepared differently according to the various regions in Malaysia.
Foodies find that the Northern version of Loh Mee at EUPE Food Court in Sungai Petani is particularly unique.
For those who aren’t familiar with EUPE, it is a huge food court showcasing 28 different stalls.
Though it is inconvenient to self-serve, customers can experience what the stalls have to offer personally and see the process of how the food is prepared in person.
For a stall that only serves Loh Mee, the queue here is often long, but the wait is absolutely worth it.
The thick broth is comforting and the choices of other ingredients that go into the bowl is simply lip-smacking.
Here, Loh Mee has three different main ingredients – Loh Bak, the combo of chicken feet and mushrooms, or fried fish.
The specialty of this stall is their Loh Bak. Theirs has that extra oomph that you can’t find in most other versions.
You can also include half a hard-boiled egg, bean sprouts, fish cake slices, and your choice of yellow noodle or mee hoon, with chilli, garlic, fried shallots, green onions, and a dash of vinegar.
You can get this delicious treat for less RM5 per bowl – now that is value for money.
Be sure to add this in your list of must-eats when you’re next in Sungai Petani.
