Sri Sentosa is a coffee shop full with hawkers selling different type of foods in the morning, and it’s always crowded with people especially on Sunday mornings that finding a place to seat do require some luck.

A bowl of Dry Hokkien Mee came with many ingredients if you asked for extra, such as pork ribs and chicken feet. Oh, this Dry Hokkien Mee is also different from the usual Hokkien Char you will find in Penang, where the sauce is black in color since dark soya sauce was not used. It also makes it taste much like a bowl of normal soup based Hokkien Mee.

The mee is really delicious very tasty. Besides, the pork ribs are very very tender and soft, tasty. I wonder why they only give me 1 piece when I asked for extra extra. πŸ˜€ 8.1/10

1 shall also take note that there are 2 Sri Sentosa Coffee Shop in Bukit Mertajam, and both stall are located very close to each other, and both also sell Dry Hokkien Mee. However, I was told that this is the famous and real one. So don’t go to the wrong one. The one I went to is quite hidden inside many new shop lots, while the other is facing the main road of Jalan Kulim. Refer the maps below for more idea.

  1. Looks much like a dry curry mee here in Ipoh, sans the thick, droolsome gravy.
    Good to know of such Hokkien mee in existence.
    I was wondering is there any fried hokkien mee in Penang, like those in Singapore.

    • It taste very different from the dry curry mee though :p

      still love those dry curry mee in ipoh πŸ˜€

      fried hokkien mee definitely exists in Penang, we called it hokkien char here in Penang, and you can find it in most seafood restaurant. However, not all are good though. Nicer one are still in KL
