Penang being so close to the northern border, the nyonya food eaten here has Thai influence: much use is made of strong flavours like chillies, coconut, tamarind, herbs and spices, and the “aromatic”  belacan (pronounced belachan), a fermented prawn paste which adds a very distinct aroma to the ubiquitous rempah (chilli paste).

Situated by the banks of Sungai Dua, Selera Sri Tambang has been churning out lip smacking mee udang with huge prawns and crabs for the past 20 years. It is located in Bukit Mertajam at Seberang Perai.

The front signage is large but unostentatious; in fact, it is so discreet that, unless you know it’s there, you’ll probably walk straight past it.
