Penang Hokkien Mee! There are many hawker stalls selling this favourite noodle in prawn soup, the famous ones that are mentioned by many are mainly found in town. This little humble stall that is found in the outskirts in Tanjung Bungah, is located in a small road side cafe a.k.a kopitiam along the Vale of Temp. It is just next to a road junction and under a big tree. You won't miss it, especially with the big sign. This Hookien Mee stall is run by an uncle who's crown is already totally white, easy to recognise.

His Hokkien Mee soup at the first mouthful is full of the aroma and pungent taste of prawns, then later the sweetness of the shells will hit your taste buds. The soup base is more to the heavy tasting type. If you slowly enjoy the Hokkien Mee till the last drop, you might find something peculiar in the soup. No ,not cockroaches! You might find that the soup tastes a little bit like Mee Jawa gravy. That was what hit me at my last trip there because I was not in a hurry to go anywhere, thus we slowly savour the bowl of Hokkien Mee till the very last drop.

The stall also prepare Lor Mee, but the gravy is nothing extraordinary. But to enhance the taste if you like the starchy textures of the gravy, you could add in some top layer oil from the prawn soup. It will give it an added punch to what was a dull taste. The Lor Mee is, if I am not wrong, is RM 2.80 per bowl with two chicken legs.

On average. I would give this Hokkien Mee :

4/5 for value
3.5/5 for taste
3.5/5 for service
3/5 for cleanliness
3/5 for atmosphere(what can we ask from a coffee shop)
