Sum Yi Tai launches Lucky Mee – to introduce and bring close one of Ipoh’s time-honoured staples to local audiences. The pop-up menu is scheduled to launch on 21 March 2020 and will run from 23 March to 19 June 2020 during lunchtime Mondays to Fridays at Sum Yi Tai’s Tapas Bar (ground floor).

Deliberately named as a pun to reflect a casual and fun nature, the dining experience at Lucky Mee is primed to be easy, quick and satisfying – perfect for diners in the CBD.

Address: 25 Boon Tat Street, Singapore 069622

Opening Hours:

  • Tapas Bar: 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM (Monday to Friday); Bar: 5:00 PM – 1:00 AM (Monday to Friday) and 6 PM – 1 AM (Saturday)
  • Mona Lounge: 5 PM – 1 AM
  • Rooftop: 5 PM – 1 AM

Based on the original recipe imparted by Sun Heng’s Boss Lady to Sandra Sim, the menu focuses on three signature versions of the dish:

  • Curry Mee Soup ($14++) – sets itself apart from the familiar thicker curry variants, with its absence of “lemak” or coconut cream, delivering a flavourful consomme-like profile for sips.
  • Curry Mee Dry ($14++) – a toss of curry gravy made from the same mix, with squeezes of dark soy sauce for a mouth-watering experience.

Across all versions, each bowl is served with an assortment of house-made crispy roast pork belly, gravied pork skin, char siew, cockles, beansprouts and sprigs of mint leaves to cool the spice.

Along with the one-dish bowls, diners can also choose from a select menu of Lucky Mee sides with items including a side of roast plate (charsiu, crispy pork belly and prawns) and Zhar Liu (Ipoh style yong tau fu), or order sharing plates from the Sum Yi Tai menu.
