Mee Banjir Udang Mak Teh Kuala Sepetang, Perak

This traditional-eateries has been a talk-of-the-town since Majalah 3 tv3 aired it to picture the generosity of prawn inside the Prawn mee itself. The prawn has more numbers than the noodles! As a treat to my tummy for reducing 1kg last weekend, i’d give her a real experiences.

Since im on my way to KL from Kedah, I suggest to Cheryl that we had our lunch there. With a helpful Miss GPS, we made it to find the infamous gerai. How to get there? From the North-South highway, exit to Taiping Utara, after the toll, turn right at the stop light. Then just straight and find Kuala Sepetang signboard. After reach Matang, u’ll notice few shops with a sign Mee Banjir Udang. To find Mak Teh’s place, carefully look at your left after 2 shops of Mee Banjir Udang. The sign is small, so keep up your sight. also can exit to Changkat Jering but i’m not sure of the route.

Its a normal-traditional-Malay kampung-looking restaurant. In front there also got a lines of stall selling laksa udang, sotong kangkung etc.

The price: RM6( udang kolam) and RM12 ( udang laut) and you can choose yellow noodles, mee hoon, keowtiow


The verdict : The prawn are enormously large size( mine was 5 XL prawn) but the overall taste is just OKAY. I’ve taste more succulent prawn mee than this one. The expectation is high tongue has extra sensitive taste bud that day.

  1. The prawn seems out of juice, so even though its big but the juiciness is off. maybe they boil it too long..or i dont know, im soo out of food preps dept.
  2. The broth is kickless. Its obvious by the fact that i do not finished with the slurrpp part until the bowl no need to wash. I leave the broth after done with prawn and mee.
  3. I hate Bawang Goreng. Forgot to ask them to put aside. So maybe that factor influence most of my review here.:)

See..the kuah xhabis

So if people ask if I would go there again…Maybe not..Sekadar merasa.

p/s : Cheryl said theres a good Prawn Mee  near Dataran Merdeka. Have to go there!

    Aku dah makan banyak kali dah mee udang Mak Teh ni. Kalau di sekitar Taiping ni mee udang Mak Teh ni cukup best la bagi mereka. Kalau di Seberang Perai kesedapan mee udang Mak Teh ni tak masuk senarai la. Di sini mee udang yang best terletak di Sungai Dua (tepi sungai). Mee Pak Ngah Sungai Dua boleh tahan juga rasanya (tepi Mobil). Di Bukit Mertajam mee rebus best ialah Mee Pak Pin dekat Tanah Liat Bukit Mertajam (tepi Masjid Haji Saad resipi mee rebus original). Rata2 dah aku makan tapi Mee Pak Pin paling best, Mee Ramli di Ipoh pun kalah teruk. Nasi Kandar paling best di Penang ialah Nasi Kandar Kampung Melayu, Nasi Kandar Merlin, Nasi Kandar Tajuddin dan Nasi Kandar Deen Jelutong. Nasi Kandar Line Clear tak masuk senarai sedap, orang luar Penang jer kata sedap sebab mereka tak try semua nasi kandar di Penang.
