Penang Famous Hai Beng Coffee Shop Lor Mee

This famous Penang lor mee has been in business for more than 50 years. It is not only popular among the local Penangites but also with outstation visitors. I would drop by in Hai Beng whenever I go to Kuan Yin Teng Temple. Hai Beng is located just next to this famous Kuan Yin temple. The thick starchy soup is made from boiled pork bones, spices, dark soya sauce, light soya sauce and thicken with tapioca flour. The spice coated hard boil eggs that are served with the noodles are very tasty too. I normally order mee with bihun (rice vermicelli) combination. The lor mee is garnished with pork intestine taugeh (bean sprout) and some other pork innards. Pour all the chilli into the soup, oh la la la, nice until ‘mou tak teng’ (very good)! LOL!

I didn't know that the shop is a popular one when i visited the Kuan Yin Teng Temple last time.
Does it taste the same as those we had in KL?

loh mee is my favorite. some stalls offer some mashed garlic too as a seasoning. over here we do have some loh mee but it is a distant cousin in terms of taste n style

Eugene took me to another one - Hailam lor mee - nice! I had lor mee at the coffee shop near Cititel, ok...but not great. We have similar ones here.
