Famous Perak Road Market Hokkien Prawn Mee – When I write “famous” on my title, it means it’s famous and many people knows about it. The Hokkien Prawn Mee at the Perak Road Wet Market is really famous as every morning, many people wait for take away as well as eat at there. The stall owners are always seen as busy taking order and preparing the delicious Penang food, the Hokkien Prawn Mee.
Located in the wet market of Perak Road, which cannot be seen on main road, this Hokkien Mee stall is well-known in the area and it’s also known as Ah Keong Hokkien Mee. Besides selling Hokkien Mee, it also includes Lor Mee in the menu.
I went there for breakfast with my Penang friends, ordered 5 bowls of beehoon and mee combination and then look for a place to sit. It’s not easy to find a open table as it’s always occupied, especially on weekends’ morning. Waited 15 minutes and the famous prawn noodle finally came.
Presentation of the noodle does not look pretty, yet I spotted little shrimp in it and the soup does indeed look tempting. At only RM2.80 per bowl for a medium size (RM2.50 for small and RM3.20 for big), it’s a good portion of breakfast for me. Though, there’s still extra space for food.
Prawn noodle is always about the soup. The soup makes it deliciously good in the mouth with an adequate amount of prawn taste, not too over, yet not too light. The additional chilli paste add an extra spicy sense into the soup which makes it perfect. Somehow, shrimps were too little to make it a perfect bowl of Penang Hokkien Prawn Mee.
Overall, I will come back for it, if I have plenty of time to wait. Take away might be faster than eating there by the way. Try not to complain or re-ask about your order as this will make the owner frustrated and she will be talking this and that back.
