Penang is definitely a food heaven! Many will frequent our island just to savour those delicious Char Koay Teow, Chendol, Nasi Kandar and more. Yet you won’t hear much about Jawa Mee. It’s a Malaysian noodle dish commonly found in most kopitiams that is quite underrated. For those who are craving for that good bowl of sweet, tangy noodles, you’ll have to try out Lao Jia’s Gourmet Jawa Mee at Bukit Mertajam.
Lao Jia’s Gourmet Offers One of The Best Jawa Mee in Penang:
For those of you who didn’t know, Jawa Mee is a popular Malaysian noodle dish. It’s egg noodles served with crispy fritters, fried beancurd and drenched in tangy, sweet potato soup. While this dish can be typically found in most kopitiams, not many knows how to make it right.
Locals around Bayan Lepas area might have heard or even tried Lao Jia’s Gourmet Jawa Mee. The hawker stall used to operate at Spice Pisa Corner before moving to BM Food City at Bukit Metajam.
Their Jawa Mee comes in a generous portion, with just the right consistency and texture. Its sweet potato broth is aromatic and slightly tangy due to added tomatoes, chilies, peanuts, tamarinds and more. Unlike some Jawa Mee in Penang with overwhelmingly sweet flavours, this one packs a punch without being too cloying.
Besides Jawa Mee, their Pasembur is also worth trying. Fried fritters paired along with their signature broth makes the perfect combo! Those who are in the island and wish to try out their dishes, don’t worry, Lao Jia’s Gourmet offers delivery to the island! We’ve included their contacts down below so you guys could order away. In our humble opinion, they serve one of the best Jawa Mee in Penang, so try it out for yourself!
