Eating Pleasure is one of the Malaysian food blogs I have been following silently for a long time. I drool over the delicious foods posted on Eating Pleasure—delicious home-made dishes, eating out, and simply gorgeous and mouthwatering food photography. Authored by Little Inbox, a wedding photograher, Eating Pleasure whets my virtual appetite, especially when I miss the foods from home. The guest post today is mee udang or Malay prawn noodle, commonly served by Malay hawkers at their “warung” (small cafe) by the coast in Penang, using the freshest catch from the sea. (Mee Udang is vastly different from Penang Hokkien Mee, or Chinese prawn noodles.) Please give your warmest welcome to Eating Pleasure!

It was a surprise to me when Rasa Malaysia emailed me for a guest post invitation. I’m so happy to be given such an opportunity. It’s such an honour for me to write on a Malaysian’s famous food blog—Rasa Malaysia.

Both of us brainstormed about what Penang food should I introduce here. So, here is it – Mee Udang. Mee Udang or Malay Prawn Noodle is very famous in Penang. One can easily find it at Malay hawker stalls near seaside, where the prawns are fresh from the sea…

My place is just walking distance to the seaside. I can get fresh sea prawns directly from fisherman at a very low cost. That gives me the privilege to share my home cooked Mee Udang here. A plate of yellow noodle top with huge fresh prawns in sourish tomato gravy, it is indeed appealing.

    Is the taste closer to Mee Rebus, just that the gravy looks thinner in Mee Udang and there is Udang? ;p
