Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng

This is the Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng (fried noodles) which has been selling for 44 years. Well, I bet you must have heard of this mee goreng before as it is very famous. Often, I have seen people sharing it's article on Facebook and many bloggers have wrote about it as well. This mee goreng stall is located at a corner in Seng Lee Cafe.

Last Thursday, me and my roommate, Hua Wei came to taste this famous Bangkok Lane mee goreng by riding motorbike. We both ordered one plate of mee goreng with extra cuttlefish added.

This is the mee goreng with extra cuttlefish added, one plate costs RM5. The hawker has stick a list of prices in front of his stall. The prices vary with the different ingredients added to the mee goreng. Below is the list of prices:

Boiled / Fried Noodles(extra cuttlefish)- RM5.00
Boiled / Fried Noodles(cuttlefish and egg)- RM4.00
Boiled / Fried Noodles(cuttlefish)- RM3.50
Boiled / Fried Noodles(egg)-RM3.50
Boiled / Fried Noodles(Normal)- RM3.00
Fried Noodles(vegetarian big)- RM4.00
Fried Noodles(vegeterian egg)- RM3.50
Fried Noodles(vegetarian normal)- RM3.00

A friend told me that last time when he went to try this mee goreng, he has to pay RM8 for one plate of mee goreng. All he requested was just added some extra noodles. For those who want to try, do be careful while you order, remember to ask for the price first.

This mee goreng is basically sweet and spicy in taste. After pouring the lime on it, the sour taste mixed uniformly with the original sweet and spicy taste. The cuttlefish was quite soft, yet somehow I can still feel the elasticity of it. Comparing to the Esplanade mee sotong, I will prefer the mee goreng here as the Esplanade one is a bit too heavy taste.

Hua Wei has ordered a plate of Pasembur. The Pasembur here was sold by an Indian, this one plate costs RM5.

Personally think that the Pasembur here was nice to eat. It tastes sweet in overall with a little bit of sour. The hawker put quite a lot of cuttlefish in the Pasembur.

Me and Hua Wei have ordered Teh Ice (RM1.50) for our drinks. The Teh Ice here tastes normal only, nothing special.

When I interviewed the hawker, he spoke with me with a very fluent Hokkien, even better than me! He told me that he started to sell mee goreng since 1970, and he has been selling for 44 years at this cafe. He also told me that this mee goreng was passed down by his father.
