Perak Road Hokkien Mee @ Penang

When talk about Hokkien Mee in Penang, rarely people will know about this stall at Perak Road wet market. However, as low profile as this stall is, as not so popular compare to others it can be, it doesn’t stop the crowd (especially those stay in Perak Road) to patronize this stall. This only prove 1 fact, the Hokkien Mee here is good!

Perak Road Hokkien Mee @ Penang-1

The soup of the mee here is very good, full with prawns flavor. Although the ingredients given is much lesser than others (you are getting a bowl of classic and traditional Hokkien Mee, so no, you can’t add roasted pork or whatever others in it), and the prawns given is also much lesser, but all these does not stop the soup to taste wonderful. At only RM2.30 it’s very cheap. 8.0/10

Green House Hokkien Mee @ Penang

Green house Hokkien Mee, located at Burmah road, was regarded as one of the best Hokkien Mee by many Penangties. One of the specialty here is you can opt for many extra ingredients such as “pai kuat“, roasted pork and many others, which makes the Hokkien Mee more yuummy.

Not only the coffee shop was named Green House, but the Hokkien Mee stall is also in bright green color. However, to me, this bowl of Hokkien Mee is really so so only, really nothing to shout about despite it’s fame. However, can’t deny that the roasted pork here is good. 6.0/10

One Corner Cafe Super Hokkien Mee @ Penang

Well, although Penang is famous for it’s Hokkien Mee, or better known as prawn mee, I always can’t seem to find really great Hokkien Mee at Penang. Most of the one that I tried is just above average (although still way better than those at KL one). I can’t even think of a place to bring my friends from KL to treat them a good Hokkien Mee when asked, until recently, my mum introduce this….
