Hokkien-Lor Mee @ Old Green House, Jalan Burma Penang 虾卤面/福建卤面

The Best Braised Egg 
1. Hokkien-Lor Mee: Mixed Prawn Noodles and Lor Mee 
2. Prawn Noodles/Hokkien Noodles

'The Old Green House' is famous for their prawn noodles for supper time. However I am going to introduce their Hokkien-Lor and braised egg. There are a selection of ingredients which you can top on the noodles such as roast pork, pork intestine, fish balls, pork ball, braised eggs and shrimps. You can choose the type of noodles you like such as thick yellow noodles, vermicelli and the instant noodle. Still I prefer the original--- thick yellow noodles and vermicelli.

Hokkien-Lor Mee
When I didn't know whether I should go for Prawn Noodles or Lor Mee, I will go for Hokkien-Lor Mee. It means Prawn broth mix with Lor Mee gravy in a bowl. I like the way they presented the noodles- Prawn broth and thick gravy each sides which looked like 'Yin' and 'Yang'. Lor Mee gravy is thick and starchy in texture, and sweet in taste. However their gravy is lighters, not that thick. Thus it mixed well with the prawn broth. 

On the noodles, they put shrimps, egg, beans sprouts and fried shallot. I requested to add pork intestine. The braised pork intestines did not taste bitter at all. I love their pork intestine and braised egg because they are so full of flavour especially the braised egg! The most flavourful braised egg I have eaten in Penang so far! Next time I will definitely go back for the braised egg. 

If you order Hokkien-Lor or Lor Mee, they will put a spoon of minced garlic on the noodles too. I notice that most of the stalls in Penang served this noodles with minced garlic. As I remembered, my hometown, Kedah did not serve this noodles with minced garlic. The raw minced garlic indeed flavour the noodles. Even though I hate the after eating garlic-breathe and drying throat, I just can't resist it. Before you start eating the noodles, mix all the stuff so that the broth and gravy mix together.

Penang Hokkien Mee/ Prawn Noodles
The signature dish of the shop. I am not sure how it tasted because Ah Boy didn't want to share with me and  he requested to add roast pork on the noodles. 

The shop is located at Jalan Burma, near New World Park, opposite Tunes Hotel, next to the Ming Xiang Tai. Sit outside at the corridor and get some cool drinks from Ming Xiang Tai (should try out their biscuits and sweets in the afternoon).

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…

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 vermicelli. Some people d…

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...
