I love Hokkien Prawn Noodle, I love Penang Prawn Noodle, I love Hokkien Mee. Err, what’s the difference? Actually it’s all the same, just different names. Haha, Penang people like to call it Hokkien Mee, outstation like to call it Penang Prawn Noodle, I like to call it, Penang Hokkien Prawn Mee Noodle. Just kidding. Just Hokkien Prawn Mee will do.
So, this Hokkien Prawn Mee is a Penang’s famous food and most people will thought of it’s only sell by the Chinese or perhaps Chinese Hokkien people. Today, I am going to introduce you guys a Hokkien Prawn Mee sell by our lovely Malay friends, Cifu Omar.
This is a Malay made Hokkien Prawn Mee which is 100 percent halal and delicious. Malay, Chinese, Indian, everyone will like it. Just that you won’t find any pork or lard in the soup, still maintaining a nice Hokkien Prawn Mee’s taste and feel.
Due to running out of bee hoon that day, the person mixed in koay teow (flat noodle) with the yellow noodle and it’s my first time trying out this version of Hokkien Prawn Mee. Guess what, it’s tasted nice! They replaced pork with chicken, lot’s of mini prawn and crabstick too! The taste just felt Penang to me, a little bit sweet and spicy, still nice.
Hokkien Prawn Mee’s fans or lovers can give this a try because I felt that it’s good. Located at Tanjung Tokong beside Petronas petrol station, it only opens for breakfast and lunch. Be quick because if late bit during noon time, it would have been sold out already. In addition, they do sell Koay Teow Th’ng (Koay Teow Soup) ala Malay style too, but I didn’t try before. =)
