This place is one of Penangite’s favorite spot when it comes to piping hot spicy sour seafood soup noodle and the clear fish soup bee hoon.
Village Fish Head Bee Hoon Soup
The business starts operating from 12pm everyday except on the 1st and 15th of Chinese Lunar calendar (if it falls on the weekdays). Although it is usually packed, they do have plenty of tables to accommodate.
What you do when you arrive at this place is to first look for a seat, get your table number, then head over to the friendly boss lady.
Their bowls of noodles starts from a basic price, then add on whatever you prefer (recommended: fresh fish slices), choose a soup base (tomyam or clear soup) and types of noodle or congee to you liking.
Both the thick broth soup and well-balanced spicy sour tomyam are equally good and tasty. Usually we also ask for extra minced meat in the soup.
You can also add more flavors with the fried garlic available free on each tables.
And like we said, it is usually quite packed with people, especially during lunch and dinner hours.
So while waiting for your hot tasty bowls to be served, we also recommend you to try out their crispy deep fried ‘Shua Zui’ (small fish).
