Curry Mee at New Cathay Kopitiam

The broth from this stall is very on point if you're craving for a bowl of curry mee that is done just right in every aspects. It is sweet, creamy, rich but not overly done. Couple it with the garnishes, chili paste, and you'll have a very satisfied tummy.

A normal bowl of curry mee from this stall comes with the usual goodness plus some extras: fresh cockles, coagulated pig’s blood, prawns, tofu puff (tau pok), cuttlefish slices and the extras — cooked long beans.

We usually order ours with extra addon of the chili soaked cuttlefish.

Although the broth itself is sweet enough, we find the sweetness and spiciness from these cuttle fish adds extra flavours to our bowls.

We do advice you to go slow with the chili paste if you’re not a heavy chili user, as we often find ourselves drenched in sweats by the time we finish the curry mee.
