Food Court: Mee Sotong - Fort Cornwallis, Georgetown (Top Pick)

Recently I was taken to a place called Hameed Pata Mee Sotong (to give it its full name) in Georgetown. It is in the food court opposite the Immigration building (as you face away from Immigration it is to the left of the car park which is opposite).

Mee Sotong is only open during the day time and can get VERY busy. We went at about noon so it was not too bad. This stall has been open for years and is famed for its Mee Goreng, a dish of noodles fried in spices and topped with squid cooked in spices with more than a hint of chilli!! I have to say the dish was very nice, piping hot, nicely cooked and very well flavoured. If you are used to Thai food you will be OK, even the hotter Indian food but it is spicy!!

To accompany the Mee Goreng I had one of the also famous coconut milkshakes from the stall nearby and also tried one of their Ice Kacang for desert which was very very good. For a quick snack lunch, provided you hit it at the right time, the Mee Sotong and its Mee Goreng and coconut shake well justify a Top Pick. Anyone wanting some more details as well as a few pics can visit this link.
