|Penang Genting Kopitiam | Famous Chee Cheong Fun|
|Saturday, 08 January 2011 00:00|
As the name indicated, Chee Cheong Fun is a Cantonese dish originated from southern China and Hong Kong. The common Chee Cheong Fun served at dim sum restaurants are usually made from sheets of rice noodles and filled with shrimp, roasted pork (char siew), chicken, fish or vegetables. A thin gravy of sweet soy sauce and a bit chili paste will go with it before serving.
For Penangites, they have a special version of Chee Cheong Fun which may be a little different. The fundamental ingredient of rice noodle sheet is still there but without any filling. Despite this hawker dish is only served with sweet sauce, shrimp paste sauce (haeko), chili saucese and sprinkle of some sesame seeds, Chee Cheong is a favorite snacks amongst Penang folks.
One of our favorite Chee Cheong Fun is at Genting Kopitiam (Chinese coffee shop) in Island Glades. The sauce is fabulous! It is creamy and does not stink or produce 'fishy' smell. We guess it contains some fine peanut powder or peanut butter.
A small serving cost you RM1.70 and big serving will be RM2.50. Some folks prefer the 'un-open' rice noodle rolls and you may request it that way when you make the order. The business is good and their service is prompt.
I would say this is the best Chee Cheong Fun of Penang version! You have to try if you are in Pearl of The Orient.
