Hokkien Mee (or also known prawn mee/prawn noodles), is a type of Chinese noodle dish cooked in spicy prawn broth together with bean sprouts, boiled egg, slices of pork and of course, the prawns. A very popular and common local dish here, it was said to be brought here by immigrants from the Fujian province in southeastern China.
Penang laksa or commonly known as asam laksa here is a sour, fish-based soup with noodle usually made with mackerel soup and its main distinguishing feature is the asam or tamarind which gives the soup a sour taste. The fish is poached and then flaked. Besides the fish, asam laksa typically include lemongrass, galangal (lengkuas) and chilli too. A popular delicacy for both locals and foreigners, it is one of the must-try hawker food in Penang.
