Salwa Mee Udang, Teluk Kumbar

Since I’ve read on some good review on Salwa’s mee udang (prawn noodles) after trying the next door Ilyana’s, decided to go for a try with my colleague again this round.

It has got the open air concept, compared to Ilyana’s, it does look more run down though… but they have got a nice view overlooking the sea… I actually put very high hope on the mee udang since the review was pretty good…



Outdoor seating by the sea….


The mee udang was served MYR 14.00…  more pricey..well..with 5 prawns.. slightly smaller than Ilyana’s (they have 3 big prawns)


Took a sip of the gravy and hmm.. very strong lemongrass taste… frankly speaking, I prefer the other one better…


The noodles was over blanched I guess, as it was too soft too… there’s lack of texture in the noodles.. Maybe also because that the makcik was cooking alone… she mentioned that her cook is not around… something like that…


Garnished with red chilies and chopped spring onions…


Nasi goreng udang (prawn fried rice) was just okay as commented by my colleague… also at MYR14.00 each. But overall I personally felt that the mee udang is not as good as i thought it’ll be.. so i was a little bit disappointed… and with the price charged…it’s just not a good combo…


Kitty cat and her kittens enjoying the view, from rooftop some more….  VIP view..


It’s a fishing village so plenty of fishing boats here….


Enjoying the sunset…


You may take a stroll along this bridge to enjoy the sea breeze and view….


Pretty isn’t it? :D
