Penang street food scene have gain a notch up with the arrival of Michelin ratings in the shore of both KL and Penang. There are handful of hawker stalls being selected as Michelin Bib recipient and Penang Green House Hokkien Mee is one of them since Dec 2022

Of course with this, travelers like me would travel overseas just to hunt on the list. this have created a buzz for Michelin Street Food hunt in Penang.

When Green House Hokkien Mee was selected as the recipient it has raise alot of questionnaires on this. However, I am happy over the listing as let the undiscovered gem still remain as it is and let the commercialize be commercialize so I do not need to queue for my food. 

I still think this stall is decent as once a while I would go back for a classic normal bowl of Hokkien mee. Their unique is they are one of the stall that you can choose to add on ingredients ranging from prawns, egg, intestine, roast pork and others. 

I would always go for add on herbal egg and prawns. Soup wise to me is decent as more towards hint of end sweetness, chili paste that I would add in more to give me the umami spicy impact. 

Overall it is okay as this stall is on the high side. 

Best Charcoal Char Koey Teow at night is at this New Lane Hawker Center in Penang. I have stumble this stall randomly during Covid period and recently thanks to my friend for reminding me this stall. I would say Best  Penang Charcoal Char Koey Teow at night is at New Lane Penang. 

You would not miss this stall as its one of the stall that consistently having long queue even rain.

This stall had been operating for more than 40 years. There are 2 wok frying at one go which is also a training on the go for his son. of course taste fried out there will be slight different as same recipe but charcoal fire is a beast by its own. 

Loved the chared koay teow being fry as that is certainly the wok hei effect. Fried nicely, aromatic, slight dry to my liking and of course I put Duck egg onto it. Of course depends on your luck too as at time its awesome and 20%-30% off the grid. Consistency is still not at its best. Recommended plate of Koey Teow for night version.

Is this the best char koey teow in Penang? I would say for night version 80% YES!

Chinese New Year is just 2 weeks away. Everyone is already ushering and starting to prepare for Reunion dinner or gathering. This year CNY 2023 with Golden Phoenix at EQ KL is bringing us the classics. EQ brings back the legacy of
Golden Phoenix with food from its cherished menu archives.

cny 2023 price

Golden Phoenix restaurant has long held a reputation for culinary excellence since its inception in 1974.
Much like its mythical namesake, the restaurant has gained legendary status for its celebrated
Cantonese and Szechuan fare.

Chef Choy Sin Sang has been instrumental in continuing the Golden Phoenix legacy for many years. An
alumnus of Selangor Ching Wu School, Chef Choy studied the art of dim sum making at the Taiping Tea
House before working at his first hotel in 1957. He joined the original Equatorial Hotel in 1973, where he
has since ensured that the food from the Chinese kitchen is of the highest calibre and authenticity. It is
with great pride that EQ recreates the Golden Phoenix in all its glory every Lunar New Year.
This year, we invite you to savour a magnificent showcase of classic and beloved oriental creations with
a unique and contemporary twist.

Herbal soup , Spicy Mala, Pork Bone Soup , Pepper Pig Stomach

Personal recommendation would be their Spicy Mala – is actually an entry level. No like those China Hotpot spicy and decently and eat it comfortable. More like entry level.

their new flavour Herbal Soup would be my next recommendation. Love this soup as strong in herb taste, easy to drink and match with most of the ingredients that they have. 

I am totally impress with their new soup quality. Certainly believe they have improve so much compare to my last dining experience.

When you are craving for Penang street food in Pj, there are not many choices. However, there is this one particular stall that is super famous among the locals and Penangnites. This Famous Penang Curry Mee at Retaurant  Station 8, SS2, PJ that is also previously known as Restaurant OKay, ss2. I believe change owner already.famous curry mee in kl

This stall runs by both father and son from Penang that operates at very unique hour. This will be the first time in your life that see people operating a business for 60-90 minutes only. Yup, that is correct. Only that window. Worst of all is way early in the morning. from 7am – 8.30am ONLY. They only prepare 1 pot of soup. Finish then finish. Good luck. Previously I try my luck for more than 3 times to get this pippin hot bowl.famous penang curry mee in kl

 

 

 

penang street food in pjpenang curry mee in pjbe prepare to queue for 15- 30 minutes for a bowl as there are many regulars who come by to take away also. penang curry mee ss2best penang curry mee in kl

now one bowl is also cost about RM 9 for small and RM 10 for big. Big actually is quite big but now cause of inflation, food is getting very expensive. most important ingredient for Penang Curry mee is pork blood and taupok. 

best penang curry mee in pjthey maintain their quality as the last I had this bowl was like 6 years ago. One of the main reason is I could not wake up. Weekend I would just prefer to sleep. however the soup is still sweet and the most important is the chili paste. Fragrant and punch with mild chili spices. Perfect!

Siew Kee Pork Noodle at Manjalara Kepong is one of the famous pork noodle in Kepong this neighborhood. After I posted in my stories only got to  know it is a few of my friends regular lunch place. I find that this is not your regular Pork Noodle soup place which is a bit unique. I find its a kind of combination of local x east malaysia like Sabah or Sarawak style.

pork noodle in kl

it is a simple comfort food and the store had been operating for more than 15 years already at the same location. 

siew kei noodle house restaurant (3)Here are some of the sparer part for you to chose or you want all in like mine?

what to eat in kepongsiew kei noodle house restaurantFor soup base I find it normal, if you order bee hoon, the taste is covered up. Soup base taste could not taste as prominent as the dry seperate version.famous pork noodle in klSince I observe alot people order the dry noodle, I decided to try one portion for dry and another portion soup base.  Dry pork noodle – Koey Teow Mee with all pig spare part. 

Soup base is great as  I tasted there is a hint of “chinese wine” or siew weng chow in the soup base that give its uniqueness. Pork parts are all cook to perfettion, soft part where it is needed. Missing out is pork intestine. then that would be perfect.

pork noodle in kepongKoey teow noodle is different as when it was serve, I believe it is drench with some fresh pork oil as the aroma of it is very prominent and serve with some sweet soy sauce, some other mixture and pork lard. I find this pretty good. Noodle and gravy itself is on the sweet end with pig oil taste quite prominent.pork dry noodlepork noodle manjalara

Overall, I find it not too bad for a comfort food around the area. Do not mind to come back again as I want to try their Yee Mee Next. Is this the best? every one have their own preference taste. I find it quite worth to give it a try as not the usual ordinary style.
