This place has got to be the feature of the week.  Brings back much memory everytime I eat this Lor Mee.  I think it has been more than 20 years now  ...

Initially this stall was manned by a husband and wife team and they used to sell at Lam Ah coffee shop, the shop at the junction of Chulia Street and Beach Street opposite the fire station.

The old man selling always had a 'good morning' towel ban over his forehead and he remebers every one of his customers order pretty well.  Thay then moved to Lean Thye coffee shop at Lebuh Ah Quee, being the solo stall there.  Business was good as usual.  Unfortunately, they were struck by health issues and had to sell the stall.  Thankfully for us, this old man passed down his recipe to the current talented young man who is doing good to the Lor Mee industry. 

The bowl of Lor Mee he makes taste exactly the same as the one the good old man used to make.  And this guy also has a pretty good memory of your orders.

Team of 2 brothers and the mum, older brother is currently training the younger one up.
If you look carefully at the photo, and if you are a Penang street food die hard, you can recognise that this guy sells a different thing at a different stall at night somewhere in town.
Make a guess ... another popular venue ...

Chilli and garlic as much as you wish

Foodie's Choice - Small Bowl add Meat RM 4.00
The Best Kopi O in town for ONLY 80 cents !!!

I have ranked this the best in town so far
Everyone who comes here drinks coffee and nothing else

This place has got everything Penang has to offer
A touch of heritage
Perfect food
Perfect coffee
Bonus good value for your RM 5 (20 cents change)
Totally satisfied !
