If you are staying around OUG (Overseas Union Garden), you should know know that OUG is a food haven. There are many choices of food around and some places are actually very famous which includes Restaurant Hong Cha for pork noodles and sushi, Kedai Makanan Ah Loy for curry mee and assam laksa and Steven Corner for Naan Chicken Pizza to name a few.
We were on the way to Mid Valley Megamall on a Saturday morning hence we decided to have breakfast at OUG first.
OUG Lucky Restaurant is a Chinese kopitiam with hawker stalls selling pork noodles, char koay teow and chicken rice. The pork noodles is quite famous but I think it’s just so so and I usually come here for the curry mee.
There is a curry mee stall (OUG 巷仔咖厘面) at the alley between TMC Kopitiam and OUG Lucky Restaurant at OUG. There’s a variety of noodles to choose from to go with your curry mee; yellow noodles, koay teow, bihun, or wan tan mee. There’s soup and dry version. You can either sit outside or inside Restoran Lucky.
The curry mee has ingredients like char siew, chicken, tau fu pok, bean sprouts and cockles. Taste wise, I wouldn’t say it’s fantastic but its decent enough for a neighborhood hawker stall standard.
The curry broth has layers of red colour looked spicy, thick and concentrated. However, it wasn’t really that spicy actually and the gravy was thick enough just the way I like it as I don’t really like diluted curry broth.
Verdict: The curry mee at the alley between TMC Kopitiam and OUG Lucky Restaurant at OUG is not the best curry mee but the taste is alright to satisfy your curry mee cravings especially after walking at the OUG morning market. I frequent this place to get my curry mee fix in the morning. Kedai Makanan Ah Loy which is famous for curry mee is near this hawker stall but its only open much later at 11am.
