Penang Hokkien Mee Hokkien Mee or better known as Prawn Noodles, is a dish of rice sticks (beehoon) and yellow noodles served in a spicy and strong flavorful prawn broth, garnished with bean sprout, water spinach, halved hard boiled egg, cooked shrimps, slices of lean pork and sprinkled with deep fried shallots. It is usually served with a spoon full of chili paste in addition, and some vendors do offer extra toppings such as fish balls, roasted pork, mantis prawn and pork ribs.
In Penang, Hokkien Mee is offered throughout the clock, so one can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even supper! That's the luxury if you happen to land on Penang - the food paradise. That's said, to locate an authentic hawker food these days can be pretty tough due overwhelming new hawker centers that dot the island.
Our visit to Perak Road Market - one of the old wet markets in George Town ended up to savor Ah Keong Hokkien Mee. Highly recommended by the locals, Ah Keong's Hokkien Mee is one of the hawker stalls operated in an open coffee shop, near the junction of Jalan Slim and Jalan Pasar. Precisely, Ah Keong's Hokkien Mee can be found opposite Perak Road Fish Market, touting on a small signpost in Mandarin.
Despite there a few other Hokkien Mee hawker stalls nearby along Perak Road, Ah Keong wows his customers with the impressive prawn broth, a taste that is not too hot, neither offending noses with overwhelmed marine smell. Catering for breakfast crowd, the queue can be pretty long at times. But the broth is served frugally, at which explains where is the best secret of the dish!
After savoring Ah Keong's Hokkien Mee, walk across the road and Perak Road Wet Market is just right ahead. Sheltered, all the poultry, vegetables, fruits and seafood are sold here. To access dried ingredients, walk across Jalan Slim to get into another buildings, whereby one can find vendors selling clothes, finger food and another spot for second helping or snacking from an array of hawker delights!
