Well, alot of outstation folks come here to hunt for one item, particularly one food stall which is the famous Old Green house Hokkien Mee (prawn noodle) that is known to many travelers. The specialty is that you can add ingredient from the sides which makes them quite overrated and also very expensive. I come here for different reason and here is my Top 5 street food to order at Old Green House Kopitiam.
It is hard to find very nice curry mee during late night and this is the stall that give you the top flavour. Love the mild sweet coconut broth and the best is their special cook chili paste, which is one of the most important ingredient for the noodle. However this stall is getting more expensive too.
2. Yee Sang Kai Chuck or known as Chicken Chuk (Porridge)
If you are looking for something more light, then this Chicken Chuk or porrdige is a must order. Silky smooth texture and add on with steam chicken with bean sprout, is a great combination. indeed give me a satisfied tummy. Alot other diners also just ordered their chicken only without the porridge.
From this stall, you hunt for 2 dish.
3. Char Hor Fun
One of a rare item that will go extinct soon which is this Char Hor Fun or another term for it is also known as “Tua Pan”. Still one of my favourite stall for this as most of my favourite place already no longer operating. This uncle still fried the noodle with wok hei and even his staff that cooks it, is also top notch. Gravy is spot on, as you need to add on an egg which is fresh egg that tops on it.
4. Ee Foo Mee
Similiar gravy by different noodle texture. You wont find this noodle in KL hawker as the noode is being fried once in dry version then cook the gravy seperately and bath upon it. Still my favourite.
5. Bak Kut Teh
Operate by the same stall owner as both of them are siblings. The elder brother is operating the Bak Kut Teh Stall. You get to choose the pork parts that you like or you can order it by mix everything which including pork spare parts. Yumz! Soup base here is slightly more pungent in herbs taste yet the fragrant after soy sauce taste is what I like. You get to choose yam rice or white rice. Their signature is Yam Rice that usually finish quite early.
This is the usual 5 item that I would order whenever I am back which also mark my first “makan” destination upon reaching Penang at night. Wan Tan Mee is so so. Char Koey Teow is not too bad but not my preference. Dim sum stall which is decent but quite expensive.
One of my favourite kopitiam that operates till 2-3am. Best place after club or drinks for late night chinese supper.
Enjoy eating with my choices of 5 street food to order at Old Green House Kopitiam.
