In Penang, most people consider it a food heaven that cannot be deny, that one of the hottest place to dine at night and you love to rob a dinner table for your family and friends, which is a very normal things to do in a coffee shop, then you must not miss one of the famous place to dine Bee Hooi Restaurant. A place where you can find simple hawker food enough to kill off your hunger and craving that filled with a few famous stall, with cheap food yet good.
If you come here during public holiday or weekends, you might have to be a efficient robber.
A stall that I would not miss is this Frankie’s Pizza with in the standard menu, ‘Hawaiian Chicken, Tuna, Seafood, Mutton, and a few more. ‘
One of my personal favourite in the stall is ‘Hawaiian Chicken or Mutton with extra cheeze topping’ yum~
With my ‘Mutton Pizza with extra Cheeze’ RM 7-8 (Small) is well toast and ready to be eaten. Please do not compare the one with the restaurant as this is the kopitiam version as the crust might be thicker and hard a bit but after toast it well with well marinated ingrediant, its one of the best to get. Nice melted cheeze, with soft mince mutton with onion in it. Recommended~
For oyster’s lover, ‘Fried Oyster’ is one of the dish you would not want to miss. I find the fried oyster here is very classic, that fried it in soft layer with egg, mashed it a bit and top it up with Oyster. Its very aromatic and dipping it with the Chili, its just perfect.
My plate of ‘Fried Oyster’ RM 6 as the price ranges from RM6-RM15
One of the famous hawker in the kopitiam is this ‘Char Koey Teow’ stall run by the whole family, as the mom prepare the ingredient, the dad fried on it and the son deliver. You can be expected to wait from easily 10minutes to 30 minutes depending on the crowd as this mini hawker stall did feature in a few newspaper as seen in front of the stall which I forgot to snap it.
One of the good ‘Char Koey Teow’ to make it delicious is by using charcoal to fried along and plate by plate to ensure the koey teow and the ingredient are fried evenly. To eat the best ‘Char Koey Teow’ is always must go along with ‘Duck Egg’ if the place do offer and fried with charcoal.
My simple plate of ‘Char Koey Teow with Duck Egg’ RM4 which is my cheaper and nicer compare to the famous one Lorong Selamat. I do have big prawns too on my plate with well fried with wok hei, and dry with each koey teow is not that sticky and aroma of duck egg is well blend.
Then my mom ate ‘Koey Teow Theng’ RM3 which is a simple dish which is definately taste alot better than most of the KL stalls.
Besides this mention above, there are other famous stall too, like the ‘Loh Mee’ and a few other stalls. . . With no complain that this kopitiam serve quite a good range of food, worth recommending.
