Straits Café - (Melbourne)

  This shop makes one of the more gorgeous Penang style Prawn Har Mee,  you can literally smell the prawn essence from outside.   There are a few shops in Melbourne which does a decent version,  but Straits Café is going to be the benchmark for them all to beat.  It is a very well known shop amongst the circle of Malaysian foodies (including non bloggers) over here!  Just look at the colour of that soup!


Doesn’t look very Malaysian from the outside though..


Popiah of the Nyonya Kueh style,
only available on Saturdays.   I used to come for this too!


Grass Jelly -


Young Coconut Juice -


Penang Har Mee/Meen -
That broth has a lot of prawn and other ingredients put into it.  The pork rib slices are ok,  the prawns are fresh enough.  It’s the soup that matters the most -  and it is seriously potent !  ~  8.5/10


A mixture of Vermicelli and Egg Noodles -
Their 3 different types of Laksa are also famous,
but when it comes to Laksa’s,  I have other options to visit I think? ! : D
