Goh Chew Deep Fried Fish Beehoon at New Lane is a popular local fried beehoon (translated as rice vermicelli) spot in Penang. This fried beehoon is served with deep fried fresh fish meat and is only available in the morning. The main attraction here is the fried fish meat and prawn (sometimes served with extra curry paste), the taste of which sets this beehoon stall apart from the others.

Penang Food: Chee Cheong Fun

foodccf
Unlike the Chee Cheong Fun style in Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong, Penang’s Chee Cheong Fun is special in its won way where the steamed rice rolls are eaten with its secret recipe sauce. The sauce is what sets it different in Penang. Each hawker stall that sells Chee Cheong Fun will claim that their stall has the tastiest sauce. The above picture was from the stall located at the Genting Coffeeshop, in Greenlane, Penang. This particular stall’s sauce is made using peanut butter paste as one of its ingredients.

Although Chee Cheong Fun is usually available at any time, it is commonly taken during breakfast or brunch.

This steel sculpture found at Sungai Ujong Road depicts barbers who once set up their business along the Prangin Canal back in the old days of Penang. Hairs which were cut were apparently thrown by the barber shops into the canal during that time. Sungai Ujong Road also marks the end point of the former Prangin River. Sungai Ujong Road serves as the connection between Prangin Road and Kimberley Street.
