Penang Hokkien Mee, (also called Prawn Noodle outside of Penang) is a spicy soup-based noodle (a mix of yellow noodle and vermicelli).

This is a very different version of fried “Hokkien Mee” you can find in Klang Valley, which closely resembles to “Hokkien Char” in Penang.

This is considered a popular dish in Penang; it can be consumed any time from breakfast to dinner or even supper.

The soup is the most vital element when it comes to a good bowl of Hokkien mee.

Boiled with prawn shells, pork bones and chill paste for several hours, the soup has slight spiciness that is just nice with prawn sweetness and pork flavors.

It is then served with garnishes like sliced hard-boiled eggs, pork slices, de-shelled shrimps, water spinach (kangkung), beansprouts, fried onions and a dollop of chili paste.

Upons years of refinements, many stalls in Penang also started offering “addons” like roasted pork belly, pork ribs and fish balls for extra charges.

Heads up! When it comes to food and experience, opinions varies from person to person. So please take ours with a pinch of salt.
