Makan Makan Penang : Mee Goreng @ Bangkok Lane

The wall adones with press cutting of the dancing mee goreng man . Blogs and prints outs accompanys him. Mahboob Zakaria's family has been frying and mee goreng for the past 81 years.

The noodles are not the usual mee goreng you would find in your neighbourhood mamak store, they are fried with a secret mix of chilli and tomato paste and a gravy made out of prawns stock and mashed sweet potatoes. accompanied with the usual prawn fritters , taukua , egg and sotong.
And yes..............its spicy !!!!!!!!!

The friendly chef isnt camera shy and shows off his unique frying skills with the wok , swirling the large pan furiously around the stove. And yes, he speaks fluent Hokkien too !
