Penang Curry Mee (檳城咖喱面) is a Penang hawker noodle dish. It is made up of egg noodles (mee) and rice noodles (bihun) in a coconut-milk based curry soup and served with bean sprouts, bean puffs (taupok), prawns, cockles, cubes of coagulated pig's blood, cuttlefish, mint leaves, a helping of chilli paste, and some times eggs and chicken meat.

The Penang Curry Mee closely resembles what is known in other states as Laksa, with noted differences.
