Curry Mee is usually made up of a mix of yellow noodles and rice vermicelli in a bowl of spicy curry soup cooked with coconut milk.

This dish usually come accompanied with ingredients like tofu puffs (tau pok), prawns, cuttlefish, cockles and coagulated pig’s blood.

The pig’s blood are said to add flavors to the broth. There are also some stalls that replace it with coagulated duck blood instead.

The best way to enjoy a bowl of curry mee, is to mix well with a spoonful of chili paste to further enhance its taste.

Heads up! When it comes to food and experience, opinions varies from person to person. So please take ours with a pinch of salt.
