MEE JUTA


The stall is located near the main road

Yesterday, trying to be romantic with hubby and after working late (not work on sex har) he suggested we go for supper. Since my sister is here to help me to look after my kids, ok lor. I don't want to go too far and told my darling that whatever on the way will be good enough. So, we drop by at the cafe opposite Ping Hua Girl School at Gottlieb Road. Got lots of stall there. At first we ordered pasembur, tasted ok but there they have 2 types of keropok - 1 is with normal frying colour and the other one a bit orangy colour one. Eh! How come leh? I a bit kepo one and surely will ask one. I asked him, "boss, taruh cili powder kah" (asked him if he added chilli powder)? "No, colour" that was his answer. In my heart, wah colour kah............. normally we used colour for jelly, pudding, juice and ect but frying stuff also can put colour. This anneh (the way we address an older indian man) very canggih also. Forget it, colour I don't want.



Then, my hubby saw this stall written MEE JUTA. He make a joke out of it. Eat already can become jutawan kah? (Juta means million and jutawan means millionair - not millionhair har. LOL) It also written handmade. So, he decided to order a small plate to try. Wah!!! Taste good leh. The mee really crunchy one wor. Later, I ask the lady are they cantonese and she say yes. Later, found out this is called "Cu'en Tan Mee" (Whole Egg Noodle). I have not tried this good noodle for more more than 18 years already since my grandma pass away. I am honest. It's not like the Wan Tan Mee that we eat which has blacky sauce. This is really traditional method of preparing it. No fancy condiments are added in - only some spring onion, some chicken meat and slice bbq pork meat. Small plate cause you RM2.50 and a big is RM3.00. The serving is not big har so, for man they might have to take 2 plates.

So, remember after eating this noodle you won't become jutawan har. It's just a name only. Anyway, I have forgotten to ask that uncle why he put such a name. If next time, you ever visit this place, remember to ask him har.

In fact , my crazy hubby wanted to go again tonite but luckily we have got a dinner appointed.

Hi Erina,
Went to the Juta Mee stall the other weekend. Got to know that they have close shop already... means wong fei hoong sau tong... no more selling.

Heard that the biz is very bad.

mee juta is translated from Hokkien word " Pak ban mee " or 1Million Noodle. This noodle is originated from the smallest state in Malaysia - Perlis(Kangar). The name of "pak ban" or 1 million was given by the customers due to good business. Since this noodle originally has no name, so pak ban mee stays till now.

Stall in Perlis has already closed and they shifted to Penang to start the business.
