You will be spoilt for choices when you are here; as long as you can bear the noise and the heat underneath those aluminium roof.
Prices are truly unbeatable and the tastes here are classic (though I do feel some of them have deteriorated)
Penang Chee Cheong Fun (RM1.70)
The version of CCF here in Penang is different from KL or Ipoh; as they do not have fishballs or anything to go with but just plain flat rice noodles either rolled up or flattened with a toss of the sauce of your choice (usually sweet sauce, shrimp paste or plain soy sauce) and then sprinkled with sesame seeds and some oil on top before serving.
As you can see, it's an assortment of the rolled and flat rice noodles and with a mix of sauces.
Another Penang hawker delight which is also a variant from the Nyonya version; Popiah (rolled steamed spring rolls) RM1.60
It's stuffed with mengkuang char rolled with lettuce leaves before adding the outer layer of the popiah skin to the roll.
It's one of the healthy option; and I used to term it as the Chinese/Nyonya version of the salad.
Lam Mee (RM3)
This is a Chinese verison of mee bandung; and it has a Chinese taste to it.
Most of my family and friends enjoyed this and they prefer the stall here in Cecil Road:D
Jawa mee (RM3.50)
This is different from Lam Mee; the gravy is different and the ingredients are different.
The gravy is blended with light sour sauce (I think it's tomato) with some grinded peanuts in it.
They use the yellow mee for this with a half of a hard-boiled egg (actually a slice), along with cut-up fried fritters, bean sprouts and shallots as well.
Lastly, if you want to enjoy the Penang Ice Kacang which does not use coconut milk but with sarsi/syrup, then you can order one here too at RM2
So, if you are thinking of getting Penang food all at one go, this is like the one-stop solution!
**I feel like I should be paid for promoting...**
I will be compiling all the Penang food soon....hehehe, make it into a blogger-pedia...I like that name:D
