Best Chee Cheong Fun in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Chee Cheong Fun is among Malaysians’ favourite dish, either as a breakfast, simple snack or a companion when your tummy is bored. It’s literally translated at pig intestine noodles, yet don’t jump out of your seat, it’s purely rice noodles and visually resembles a pig intestine. The texture of the rice noodles is pivotal and the thick gooey prawn paste and chili sauce is what completes the dish. It might sound simple, however it requires lots of skills and savoury. Spots below are highly vaunted among Penangites, be it sticking to the original flavours or spinning new flavour twists, it’s all here!

    Restaurant 1288

    Another full of life food court at Paya Terubong that has been a melting pot of local delights under one roof. An amiable lady has been stalking up praises for her Hong Kong style Chee Cheong Fun, which has pork filling (char siew) and shrimps as an additional layer of flavour. The rice noodles are suffused with gooey prawn sauce, a splash of sesame oil and spicy chili sauce. There is a lot going on at each bite, yet the ethereal lightness of the noodles is well maintained.

    Sin Kim San Cafe

    This food court offers far-flung choices of dishes that would satisfy all sorts of appetite, from pizzas baked in open firewood oven to sizzling grilled seafood, curry mee to nasi kandar, it’s all here. The Chee Cheong Fun stall is praiseworthy, despite being underrated or rather unknown to some. The rice noodle is fresh and exudes a springy texture and is snuggly soaked in the thick prawn paste, spicy chili sauce and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. It’s a delight to your mouth, gentle texture and great flavours.

    If you find regular Chee Cheong Fun isn’t wowing you taste buds anymore or you just need that extra punch of flavours? Sebai Sebai Thai Restaurant has breathed new life into this dish, which would make you grin all the way. This restaurant fries the silky rice noodles in hot wok and loads it with juicy prawns, squids, eggs, spring onions and sesame seeds. It visually evokes you of Char Koey Teow yet it’s a whole new unique spin, the chewy texture of the noodles complements the generous splash of seafood.

    This renowned restaurant needs no introduction if you’re from Penang. It’s habitually flocked with dim sum lovers, which are absolutely toothsome. However, you can never leave without a shot of their Hong Kong style Chee Cheong Fun. The rice noodles are much mildly wrapped, offering a smoother layer of bite and is liberally loaded with shrimps and pool of rich prawn paste. The chilli sauce offers a tad of spiciness onto your palate. You’ll slurp the bowl clean!
