Lay Hong Coffee Shop Hokkien Mee

I know if I wanna start something, I gotta make the first move. Just like if I wanna compile the whole island Hokkien Mee post, first I gotta start hunting Hokkien Mee stalls in the island.

Well, let’s start with this Lay Hong Coffee Shop which is located on Macalister Road. It’s a corner coffee shop, where the shop is apparently an old heritage building. This shop caters 2 famous stall, one is the Nasi Melayu and the other is Hokkien Mee which I would like to share with you.

This is one of the stall where hubby brought me during our courtship, you know during courting time, the guy will take you to try out all kinds of good food in Penang Island – the hawker delight heaven.

The stall has many other adds on for customers to choose, down from stew pork ribs, roasted belly pork, mantis prawns, etc.

The soup base is absolutely flavorful, and tasty. A bowl of this with roasted pork belly as add on to the noodle, it gives you some kind of oomph for the morning!

It’s authentic, it’s savory, it’s aromatic, it’s delicious, it’s damn good!!

i kinda like penang hokkien mee, or as we Ipohans know it, prawn mee.

very different, the broth very sweet and concentrated. unlike the other versions elsewhere.

Ooh I believe this is my Dad's favourite stall... I've always been taken with the one at the coffee shop opposite with mantis prawns but now that I've read this, I'm going to give this a try next!

Thick and luscious looking soup.

Though is good and value for money but the mee seems to have a lot of "kee choi" and it spoilt the soups taste.BTW the drinks were expensive.
