Chee Cheong Fun has been selected as the No.7 Must Eat hawker food through an online poll on the VisitPenang website in 2009.
Chee Cheong Fun is a dish of hand cut steamed flat rice noodle rolls without any filling. It is a popular breakfast food in Penang as the food is simple, tasty and the price is reasonably cheap. The taste suits both the old and the young.
Penang version of Chee Cheong Fun comes drizzled with the basic three types of sauce - sweet sauce, shrimp paste (Hae Ko) and chili sauce along with dash of oil and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. You can choose to have all the sauces or request for less sauce depending on your preference. I am happy having mine with all the sauces except the sweet sauce.
There are a few places around town that you can get enjoy good Chee Cheong Fun. The stall in Genting Café located near to SMK Hamid Khan in Island Glades is very famous for its Chee Cheong Fun and the sauces had a good depth of flavor. A small serving cost you RM1.70 and a big serving will be RM2.50. Business hour : Breakfast till late lunch. Click here for the Map Location.
Another famous Chee Cheong Fun is found sold at a stall located in front of Seow Fong Lye coffee shop in Macalister Lane. The Chee Cheong Fun has a much firmer texture. Business Hour : Early morning till noon.
Other variety of Chee Cheong Fun is served besides the popular Penang version. It includes the Chee Cheong Fun with chicken curry. You get to savour this curry version with tender pieces of chicken and soft potato for RM3.50. The spicy flavor of the chicken curry makes this a very delicious meal. The stall is located beside Cintra Food Corner that specializes in rice dumplings in Cintra Street.
Last but not least, Curry Chee Cheong Fun can be found in a stall opposite Traders Hotel (formerly Shangri-La Hotel) in Magazine Road. A bowl of flat rice noodle rolls comes in a well-balanced flavorful curry soup with cubes of pig blood, cuttlefish, taufoo bok, cockles and garnished with mint leaves. It sure was awesome Chee Cheong Fun all the way. Business Hour : Lunch till evening. Click here for the Map Location.
