Fried Fish Fillet Bihun | Penang Hawker Food

It was my colleague who introduced this place to me. One of our Singapore counterpart came and this is the place we brought him for breakfast. My Singapore colleague had visited this stall a few times during his previous trips.

Aiyo… I’m so paiseh lo… I’ve stayed in Penang for ~5 years and yet I do not know about this stall. You should really know this stall as they serve the best fried fish fillet bihun I’ve ever tasted.

The mandarin character spelled that they sell fish stomach bihun. After we confronted the stall owner, this was they old stall name. Last time they used to use fish stomach but as times goes by, they change to fish fillet. As there are lots of bones in fish stomach and many people don’t like it.

It’s very easy to locate this stall. It’s located opposite Red Rock Hotel, in the restaurant where at night the very famous Lye Lye Bah Kut Teh operates.

Fried Fish Fillet Bihun Soup Stall This is a bowl of bihun soup with mix ingredients. They are an egg, pig liver, fu chuk, minced pork and fish ball. You can opt for koay teow or maggi mee to replace the bihun.

The fish fillet is served separately. One bite into the fish fillet, you’ll be mesmerized by the crispiness of the batter of the fish. It’s so crispy that you do not want to stop munching on it. The fish meat is tender and without any fishy or muddy smell.

I luv to dip the fish into the soup for a while before I bite on it. It’ll add some juicy feeling in the fish and yet the crispiness is maintain. Talking about it already make me drool.

They use siakap fish. All have been deboned.

    Simple girl and Cariso,
    It cost us around Rm 15 for that meal. If not mistaken, it’s RM 5.50per bowl if I ordered fish and minced meat only.

    This coffee shop have renovated with the new name of Yummy Delight. The food is as good as I heard. I went there 2x on Dec N Jan. A lot of people are waiting for their turn. Each are given a nos. to wait for thier turn. During these 2 days, I even saw 2 reporters twice. They asked the stall owner, but they are so busy to answer them too. I even heard they asked, “why there are so many people still waiting for their turn and that week is dull month”. All other stalls have no bussiness at that time. But frankly speaking, their food is really very tasty, crunchcy. You must try. to appreciate it. Pricing is reasonable too. They said they are planning to open a new shop in K L too.
    I ‘ve taken a lot of thier picture and shop too.
