I’ve always missed out a few good hokkien mee stalls at Penang as most of them will have their hokkien mee sold out by 10am. I always make myself to wake up early for the hokkien mee, but I always failed my mission.
Since morning session we can’t make it, so we went hunt for a good hokkien mee which opens in the evening. This hokkien mee stall is located at Presgrave Street or more renowned as 3rd Road (Sar Tiao Lor).
The soup base is quite clear but tasted sweet. I just had a normal bowl of hokkien mee without any extra ingredients. Yes, you can always opt for some extra ingredients.
The chee cheung fun tasted average to me. Not to my tastebud as the redundant prawn paste make the ccf too sweet. My preference is still the one at Chulia Street.
The fried oyster was a disappointment to us. There was a strong taste of curry powder and the texture was very floury.
A friend of mine told me that, the ice kacang is a must try item here. Since it’s highly recommended by my friend, so I gave it a try. First few mouthfuls, it tasted normal. But when I digged to the bottom of the ice kacang, I tasted some peanut butter.
It added a special flavour and fragrant to the ice kacang. But too bad, I only got to taste the peanut butter at the last few mouthfuls. Wish it would have more.
