For a bowl of comfort and hearty goodness Hokkien Mee, or Prawn Mee as it is known outside Penang, makes a perfect meal anytime, be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper. This dish of yellow noodles and rice vermicelli drenched in a thick spicy broth made of both prawns and pork is served with a garnish of water spinach (kangkung) and crunchy bean sprouts.

The Hokkien Mee is finished off with a few slices of lean pork, boiled egg, prawns and a sprinkle of fragrant fried shallots. To ass more depth to the already hot bowl of Hokkien Mee, a healthy spoonful of fried chilly paste is served along with the dish. What makes this dish interesting is that its spicy, strong prawn flavor actually lends a slight sweetness to the deliciously fragrant bowl of Hokkien Mee.

A basic bowl would cost between RM3.00 to RM3.50. If you wish to pack more punch in your Hokkien Mee, most stalls offer extra topping such as pork ribs, mantis prawn, fish balls, entrails, pork sausage and roast pork at additional charge. This is non-halal dish.
