    I Mum Mum Pan Mee

    For many Penangites, this is the birthplace of Pan Mee love. The cute name itself imprints inside your mind, “Mum Mum”, a phrase used by a child when it wants to eat. Started off as a humble stall in Pulau Tikus, today five branches cherish patrons with an array of pan mee varieties. Each and every flavour is a winner, yet the champion is their Crispy Pork Pan Mee, where noodles of your choice are tossed in a tomato and minced meat sauce, laden with slices of deep-fried pork and drizzled with sesame seeds. It’s a punch of flavours that invites you to "Mum Mum" another bowl. Condiments of belacan and fried chilli paste are available for a spicy kick.

    Hou Mei Yuen

    This quaint stall is surely a hidden gem. Nothing to shout about the atmosphere of the joint yet raining orders all the time as the flavours definitely shout out loud. Churning out thick and thin noodles, their soup is the best seller. They are never skimp on the portion as minced meat, fish balls, chewy leafs, black fungus and smack of crunchy anchovies doused in the scrumptious broth, along the well-prepared noodles. Tuck yourself in the open space, under the trees, gobbling down the bowl of goodness and then wash it all down with their homemade tea. 

    Tips

    Ask for additional fish balls and anchovies
