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.


Customers are usually torn between choosing the different types of crabs. The flower crabs are sold at RM5 per100g while the higher-priced Udang Galah is at RM7 per 100g and the Udang Kertas at RM9 per100g.

The noodles are done with an interesting style, Mee Goreng (fried) or the Mee Kuah (soup version). The Mee Kuah, with a spicy sweet broth is boiled down with most of the basic ingredients, prawn heads and lots of tomatoes. The prawns, bean sprouts, cabbage and other ingredients are cooked in the stock and laid on the blanched noodles. Large scoops of the flavorful thick and rich broth are poured over, followed by toppings of tomatoes, slices of hard-boiled egg, crispy shallots and a piece of lime.


On the other hand, the Mee Goreng is a dish enriched with sweet spicy flavors. Most customers will have the noodles fried with huge prawns! The texture of the noodle was just right, and every spoonful was just a treat to the taste buds.

Selera Sri Tambang also offers an assortment of drinks, and they are particularly known for their fresh nutmeg and coconut juice. I am definitely going back again as I am looking forward to try out their crabs!

Directions: On the PLUS North-South Expressway heading towards Alor Setar, exit at the junction where the Butterworth Outer Ring Road and Jalan Sungai Dua meets. Turn right into Jalan Sungai Dua. Travel on passing by the Masjid and followed by Taman Desa Murni, both on the left. Cross over the Perai River and the restaurant is on the left.

The owner, Azlina Safiee is in charge of the business which was started by her parents in the mid 1980s. This Halal restaurant can accommodate twenty tables. It is closed on Hari Raya Puasa & Hari Raya Haji only.
