Loh Mee - Green House Burma Road

I heard people raving about the loh mee in this place so naturally, I had to go try it myself.

Pitch black sauce, didn't look very appetizing but I wouldn't mind if it was tasty. Unfortunately, it wasn't very good at all. I really couldn't find anything special. The chicken feet wasn't properly stewed and was still slightly tough.

I much prefer the one in Sunshine cafe in Tanjong Tokong, or the one I have tried in Pulau Tikus just opposite the wet market.

Didn't see the garlic sauce either. Did they already mix it in?

 Overall, the loh mee was just boring for me and not up to Penang's standard. I think people go there because they couldn't find other good ones at night.

After my loh mee, I ordered a bowl of prawn mee

No kangkong, no slices of pork?

It wasn't really to my liking either. I can find better ones easily in Penang. In fact the one in Jln Ipoh, KL is better i think.

Overall, both the loh mee and prawn mee are way over-rated!
