Did you know that Chee Cheong Fun was selected as the No.7 Must Eat Hawker Food through an online poll on the Visit Penang website in 2009? Chee Cheong Fun is made of rice flour that is steamed and rolled up to about 10 cm long, hand-sliced and served with a mixture of chilli paste, shrimp paste (called hae ko), a reddish sweet sauce and sprinkled with roasted sesame seeds.

Chee Cheong Fun has a sweet and slightly spicy shrimp flavor, while the texture of the noodles is smooth, making it an excellent base the savory sauce. In Fact, it is the shrimp paste that most customers come for as the black and smooth paste made from prawn stock and salt has a strong, tasty fishy flavor without the lingering fishy smell in your mouth. Penang’s shrimp paste is the most sought-after as the state produces the best shrimp paste in the market. A plate of Chee Cheong Fun costs around RM2.00 to RM2.50.
