As dad wanted to meet his business friend in Taiping, so we decided to try out mee udang in Kuala Sepetang on 2.1.2012. There are many stalls that sell "mee banjir udang" along the road from Simpang all the way to Kuala Sepetang. Our journey was guided by very dim-lit road lights. We stopped at a place which was called Mee Udang Mak Jah.
There was an article written on Utusan Malaysia which introduced the Prawn Mee restaurant in Kuala Sepetang. Mee Udang Mak Jah sells superb mee udang noodles that you cannot miss if you come to Taiping.
Do you see that? Famous Flooded Prawn Noodle. In Malay, it is called `mee banjir udang'. 8-9 prawns in a bowl. It only costs RM7.00. The gravy is thick and flavorful with generous serving of prawns. Great food. Really worth the price.
As for the Mee Udang Special, the noodles are priced at RM 11 per bowl. It consists of about 7-8 large prawns. The difference between normal (RM7) and special (RM11) is size of the prawns. The gravy is soupy but sweet, spicy and delicious. The bowl of noodles has generous portion of large-sized chunky prawns.
