Waking up in the morning is a-ok if it is for Restoran Okay's Penang curry noodles. This stalwart stall run by a Penangite father and son duo opens early at 7.30am and sells out as soon as 9.30am. Swing by for breakfast with a colleague and 'curry' on to work! Despite its small portions, regulars come back religiously for this Curry Mee (from RM7) — an authentic representation of the popular Penang dish. Its milky orange broth meets a spoonful of potent sambal for a spicy, creamy concoction that's sure to win hearts. Coupled with a mouthwatering medley of prawns, coagulated pig's blood and cockles, the result is a noodle dish of dreams. If you arrive to a sight of uncle tilting the pot, it means you'll have to try again (earlier) next time. Thankfully, the Wanton Noodles (RM5.50) make a decent breakfast alternative!
Avg price per person: RM10
