Looking for special Penang noodle? Look no further when you try Hameed Pata Mee Sotong. It is well known in Penang among local and tourist. This place is a must place to visit when you want to try unique Penang noodle taste.
Seeing how they always cook in big portion, not to mention the constant taste (I tried before couple months back and they serve same taste). Well, after you cook for more than 10 years the same dish, you will be able to master the cooking method.
How do I found out about this place? My friend who loves Malaysian Indian food recommend this to me. Why I say Malaysian Indian food, because it has been localized taste due to local culture. One thing that I love about this place is that they cook consistent taste, sweetness is blend well with salty and slightly sour taste. You can add more lime juice to the noodle to enhance “tickling” taste bud.
Located quite well hidden in one of the food court, but commonly you can spot this shop easily when there is queue. When I come to this place, it is about 5:30 PM so I guess they are just open and still no many people (Lucky me!!!).
Two dishes that I order in Hameed Pata Mee Sotong, One is squid noodle. Their specialty actually. Second one is we called “Penang Rojak”.
I think the tomato sauce in the mee sotong is what makes it outstanding. You can order spicy version (is what I order). Special enhancement you can request is to add more fried garlic. The Penang Rojak is really special taste, it is my first time tasting this unique taste actually. So both dishes are indeed outstanding.
Summary on Hameed Pata Mee Sotong
I am giving two stars rating for this place because it is indeed special, and it is worth to drive to this place. (Kinda hard find parking in this area, plus if you go during rush hour, expect long travel time). If you visiting Penang for first time or perhaps have not hear about this place, it is time to really make time to visit this place.
