Penang is already famous for its street food and many other hawkers center are famous to outstation crowd and some are famous among the locals, as once the word spread, the hawker center will enjoy brisk business. One of the hidden gem for Hokkien Mee that I have been hunting for the past few months that often close and now they have reopen back is this 888 Hokkien Mee Stall which is located on Lebuh Presgrave (Sah Tiau Loh – in hokkien means 3rd street) which is one of a famous hokkien mee (prawn noodle) stall among the locals.

This street is very near to 1st Avenue mall which is like 2-3 streets away from the mall that if you plan to walk here from 1st Avenue, it takes about 10 minutes walk. This hawker center area is located the same street with Kwang Hwa newspaper factory.

This is the street hawker center of Sah Tiau Loh (三条路小贩中心) which many kind of food to offer with the corner shop is a coffee shop that host many hakwer stalls and those that spill over to the road side. Some of the street hawker food unable to serve food into the coffee shop due to some conflict. It is best you ask them before you order if you are seated inside the coffeeshop.

Well, anyone of you heard about the recent competition of Hokkien Mee in Penang? It was held at Times Square on December 2011 that  Penang Best Hokkien Mee stalls in the state were spotted and came by to compete to emerge the best as these were voted by the public.  888 Hokkien Mee emerge as crowd favorites and won the best in this catagory (click here for The Star News also to spot top 3 hokkien mee stalls in Penang) I am not sure that the winner of 888 hokkien mee is the same as this or not as they mention near Sunshine Square. and this is at Town area but to me still the same name and take it as another branch. 😀

In the order you can choose to add on some ingredient like pork ribs, intestine, and others.

Why is it one of my favorite is definitely because of the soup base, its sweet with prawn taste and know that its cook along with prawn shells also, not only that its also cook along with pork bones and meat that make it so nice. It is serve along with small prawns that cook inside the soup for long time and some pork. I wanted to add on some pork ribs and other ingredient was sold out.

In front of the Hokkien Mee stall comes this very busy Wan Tan Mee Stall also. I see alot of people flock on this stall and decided to give it a try too . . .

I was sitting there for 45 minutes, and this guy was so busy for 45 minutes and its non stop action. I forgot to take the picture of Wan Tan Mee but I find it nothing much to shout about as the unique is the noodle which is just a bit springy as I have better ones in other coffee shop in Penang.

Overall, if you are in Penang to hunt for very nice Hokkien Mee (prawn Noodle) this is one of the stall highly recommended by me, as during CNY holiday I came here 3 times. . 😀
