Bee Hooi Cafe @ Pulau Tikus, Penang

What to eat at Bee Hooi Cafe/kopitiam? 
1. Char Hor Fan ( Flat-wide Rice Noodles with Gravy )
2. Chicken Porridge
3. Duck Egg Char Kuey Tiao ( Stir Fry Flat Rice Noodles with Duck Egg )

My first time here was just a coincident stop-by a random kopitiam to take away supper. There sells quite a selection of food even though not as variety as the food court of course. However you can find some good food here! Well, the best and my favourite is still the 'Char Hor Fan'!

Char Hor Fan
I ordered the Char Hor Fan since I haven't eaten for awhile. I was so excited when I had the first spoon - the taste that I missed > The Authentic Taste! The sauce didn't overwhelm the flavour of stir fry noodles. You can still taste the wok taste and the noodle wasn't so oily too. The stall are owned by an old couple. I wish they could teach me how to cook this. RM5 for a plate of Char Hor Fun.

Not just the flat rice noodles, they also stir fry it with a little bit of vermicelliSome people don't like the vermicelli can request for only flat rice noodles. They put some choy sum, slices of fish ball, pork slices, roast pork slices and prawn on this dish. The old days flat rice noodles which my dad love it ( his old time ) was cooked with pork oil and has pork liver. It is hardly seen nowadays because youngster prefer the egg gravy one with lots of gravy (Note: similar to War Tan Hor). Egg gravy one is more salty and heavy in taste. The original one has a light and clear gravy and it shouldn't over power the noodles. Thus, the 'kung fu' of stir frying the noodles must be good.  

I took the photo on my second visit. Ah Boy and I ordered one each because it wasn't enough for us to share! I poured all the chili given on top of the noodles because I like the pickled chili. 
A Hidden Dish: Chicken Porridge
The other day I was craving for supper and looking for something light to eat and I found this - porridge. I was a bit confused when they told me they sell porridge because it is actually a chicken rice stall. I did not see any sign written they sell porridge.  

I love porridge, especially chicken porridge. Their porridge was not as salty compared to what you usually eat outside which is good for supper. It did not leave a heavy breathe on your mouth. It was light, clear and not oily too. Okay I am not a super healthy freak, but it is lovely to put some lettuce in the porridge. Apparently local people knew about this hidden dish as I saw some people ordered this. It was just a bit disappointed that the porridge was not warm enough for me (Understandable as it was near to closing time). RM4 for a bowl of porridge. Heard that their chicken rice are nice too, haven't tried and haven't craved for chicken rice yet, next time BA!

It isn't a stall but a Van that sell chicken rice parks in front of Bee Hooi cafe.

Charcoal-fire-cooked: The Duck Egg Char Kuey Tiao
Ah Boy ordered Char Kuey Tiao make me so tempted to eat his food because the dish came with 2 super giant prawn! 

No wonder Ah Boy told me the chef use charcoal fire to cook the noodles. To describe the noodles - 'The Wok Taste'. This noodles are unique and different from others stall by its wok taste and snap of hot sensation (peppery hot), not as salty too. Not for those who like rich flavour. RM5 for a plate of Char Kuey Tiao.

The shop is at the corner and not hard to find. It is located at Jalan Burma in Pulau Tikus, opposite Bellisa Row, same row as Baskin Robbin and AmBank, next to Hong Leong Bank. It only opens for dinner time from 6pm-11pm and easy to find a car park too.

I went there on Thursday for Char Hor Fan but the stall did not open, same as the Chicken Porridge/Chicken Rice Van. Is that meaning some stalls only open on certain days?

Cintan Mee Recipe ( Stir Fry Noodles ) 炒金旦面

Cintan Mee - The Ding Dong Mee

I love Cintan Mee so much, whether it is stir-fried with tomyam or soy sauce. I 'developed' this dish from an old kopitiam in my hometown which used to be famous of Cintan Mee. The shop was owned by an old couple but they closed the shop when I was in Year 5? Oh it was long time ago! Everyone miss their cintan mee. 
Thank god for gifted me such a good tongue and I made it!!! The taste is similar but the method of preparing is differ from the old couple. Also, I skip some ingredients to make it easy and simple. 

My sister loves it because she misses it so much as she was away from home for so many years. I remembered when I was in primary school and she came back from oversea, she will ask me to take away for her and she wanted it dry ( less sauce compare to the wet one). I could see she enjoys this dish so much whenever I cooked.

Sadly I don't have any photo of how was the noodles looked. I really miss it. So why I said my cooking method is diffe…

A hidden seafood restaurant in Batu Kawan surrounded by palm plantation which is located not far from the Penang Second Bridge. It has two dining area: air-conditional indoor and fresh-air outdoor. Plenty of car parks and dining tables. However, it is advisable to book during the weekend.

What's make so many people come here for food??? Because the price is cheap and reasonable??? You can see some alive fishes, crabs and mantis shrimps at the left side of the restaurant.
Steamed fish
I would like to skip the comment about the sauce because nothing special and very light in taste. However, the flesh was indeed very fresh and heaps!!! We struggled to finish the whole fish because it was very huge and this dish came out last. I wonder why it came out last??? This dish should come out in the middle because it is good to go with rice...
