Penang Street Food: Ayer Itam Sisters’ Curry Mee Stall

The most famous curry mee stall in Penang is arguably the Sisters’ Curry Mee Stall at Ayer Itam town. Located just across the road from the Ayer Itam market, the two elderly sisters who operate the stall have been in the business since 1940s (sometimes dubbed as Penang’s living heritage). Their curry mee’s chili paste is homemade using their own secret recipe and in this sense, is unique from the other usual curry mee.
