Penang Lor Mee comes with braised meat ingredients with robustly savory starchy gravy flavored with five-spice powder and egg white. The different spices in the flavorful and pungent gravy is what that enticed the taste of the Lor Mee. Hubby and I came across a Lor Mee stall at Lean Thye Coffee Shop which occupied the corner shop house in Ah Quee Street.
The gravy is extremely fragrant with the different spices and ingredients used. The thickness of the gravy coats the yellow noodles very well. I also like the braised hard boiled duck eggs which are really tasty with a firm and chewy outer layer.
The owner, Ah Kheng has been selling Lor Mee for around fifteen years around town before settling down in Lean Thye coffee shop in Ah Quee Street. Ah Kheng’s stall is the only one occupying the coffee shop. Business hour is from 7am till around 10am and closes on Sunday.
Ah Quee Street is a two way street and can be accessed from either Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling (formerly Pitt Street) or from Beach Street.
