Wondering where to have your tea time at Penang? Whenever during weekend, I like to drive to Cintra Street for the Curry Chee Cheong Fun (ccf). When I found out this ccf in year 2008, I’m liking it until now.

Genting Coffee Shop chee cheung fun (ccf) is so famous for its peanut flavour prawn paste sauce. Although I’ve been blogging for more than 1 year, I’ve yet to post about this ccf. Finally I’ve got my feet to Genting Coffee Shop.
The ccf stall was swarming with people. We’ve overheard the owner of the stall saying that if we would want the ccf fast, it’s better to get the ccf ourselves. Means self service.
I was craving for the frog porridge at Sin Geylang. But unfortunately when we arrived, the shop was closed. Oops… it’s Wednesday. The shop is closed that day. Too bad. Since we were already very hungry, we just stopped by somewhere near to grab something to fill our stomach.
Sin Kim San Coffee shop where the delicious Top Taste hokkien mee is being served in the morning, is serving a wide variety of hawker food at night. We are spoilt by too many choices of hawker food available. Ended up, no idea what to order.
My bf ordered a bowl of koay teow teng. Soup base is clear with average sweetness. The fish ball has springy texture, the way I like my fishball to be.
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).
Penang is very famous of its hawker food. Every hawker center or coffee shop you enter, the very common food will be char koay teow, hokkien mee, curry mee, wantan mee and jawa mee. But it’s very rare to have the good ones to concentrate in one hawker centre or coffee shop. So, you’ll have to travel to a few coffee shop to satisfy your craving for Penang Hawker Food.
There one place where you can find a few good hawker food at night. It’s located along Chulia Street. It’s a very busy street at night as well as in the morning. In the morning, you can find the famous and tasty beef koay teow at the other end of the street.
You are able to locate quite a number to tourist dining at this area.
The curry mee here do not really need much introduction among Penangnites. I believe many bloggers have blogged about it too.
We are out to hunt for chicken porridge which is recommended by a friend of us. The first thing we did is order the porridge when we reach as we are very hungry and neglecting to see the stall is yet to open for business.
The owner answer us in a ‘not so good’ manner that the porridge is not ready yet.
But I am so lucky that the famous curry ccf is still open. The porridge stall is just next to the ccf stall. I thought the stall only operate from noon till evening. When we place the order, the stall owner told us that the chicken is finish, only left potato. As our stomach is crying for food and I’ve been wanting to taste this curry chee cheong fun, we order it still.
Even after we finished our ccf, seems like there’s not any sign of opening of the porridge stall. We heard the owner told one customer that, when the light is on, then only the stall is open for business. When it’s about 8.30pm, the light is on.
Without any delay, we order 2 bowls of chicken porridge. We added fish fillet into our porridge. The porridge texture is not as smooth as the one I ate in HK. But the taste is good.
There are some fresh lettuce, yau char kuai, shredded ginger in the porridge. A hint of sesame oil in the porridge – the way I always like my porridge to taste like. Chunks of chicken and fish fillet can be found in the porridge.
Overall the porridge taste good but the owner’s manner is not so good. Even when she served us the porridge, we do not feel any kindness in it. :-p
p/s: We saw that some customer order a plate of chicken separately. I would like to try this on my next visit. But need to consider for revisit or not due to the unkindness of the owner.
