    Located at the side of the road on the way towards the busy Penang Port, this humble place has made a name for its clear fish head bee hoon and definitely its Tom Yam soup. Extremely spicy, aromatic and full of flavor, one bowl of it might lead you to look forward to the next. Customize your bowl of Tom Yam with their wide selection of fried and fresh fish, meat balls, fish balls, mushrooms, minced meat and much more, with additional charges. The Tom Yam is served with either Maggie noodles or thick bee hoon, done al dente.


    Park either opposite or at the area a little further down from the restaurant due to limited space in front of the place.

    Things to expect

    Long wait as the place is packed most of the time.
