Fei Fei told us this Pan Mee stall is quite popular within this area, especially among the students of nearby secondary school.

So today we took the opportunity to patron this stall while on the way to visit our friend who has just given birth. I was told the chicken rice at this kopitiam is also nice but we did not try it out.

Fei Fei and Huat Koay ordered large one while I chose to settle with regular one. The pan mee is individually cooked, unlike the one at Bukit Jambul.

The noodles are hand made which the dough will be rolled repeatedly using the pan mee maker and flour is sprinkled onto the dough occasionally to maintain its softness. Once the required thickness is obtained, the dough is peeled into small pieces before cooked on boiling water.

The soup based pan mee is clear but has quite strong flavor, likely to have a lot of MSG added to the soup. The pan mee is also quite smooth and soft but if you happen to get the edge portions, it can be quite thick and lumpy as what Huat Koay got. In fact, he regretted ordering the large size pan me.. Haha.

You get some anchovies, shredded mushrooms, minced meat and leaves but there is not many ingredients after all… the main portion of noodles will be quite generous but not other ingredients

The stall is open daily from 7am till 2pm. Each large bowl cost RM3.00 while the regular one is RM2.50. Additional RM0.50 if you request to have egg added.

Under the hot weather when you yearn for nice, cooling drink to quench your thirst, this shop at Aboo Sitee Lane is the place to go.

It is off Burmah Road and just opposite the Giant/ Penang Plaza, named ANBA Coconut.

It sells fresh coconut water which will be pleasant to your throat and your body too. It is also a known fact that coconut flesh is not only cholesterol free but also low in fat content.


Penang Food, coconut drink, Aboo Sitee Lane
The owner sells both types of coconuts; regular and pandan coconut. Pandan coconut is slightly different in terms of its size which is slightly smaller and rounder compared to regular coconut.

The pandan coconut water also has the scent and taste just like pandan, naturally.

A unique experience of enjoying coconut water here is you don’t have any spoon to scrape the coconut flesh. Instead, the owner will craft a spoon-like scoop out of the coconut husk itself and you can scrape the flesh without any problem at all.

The regular coconut sells at RM1.50 while pandan coconut sells at RM2.20. You can enjoy the coconut on the spot or you can opt for take away as well. The shop is opened 8.00am – 7.00pm.

A food gem that is hidden inside town of Sg. Bakap is the infamous Chai Koay (steamed dumpling).

This shop has been operating for generations and still drawing crowds from all over the places including outstation folks.

There are a few shops over here at this area but this one is known to be the original.

There is also another similar shop opposite which is run by same family member.

Penang Food, Dim Sum, Chai Koay, Sungai Bakap
The structure and design of this shop remains nostalgic like 70’s … it wooden structure is still standing strong and the decorations on the wall look like typical kopitiam we used to visit during younger days.

You can choose from two types of chai koay: mangkuang or kuchai. The chai koay skin is very delicate and thin that it will break easily, exposing the fillings if you use too much force. Yet, the taste of this chai koay in your mouth will simply let this off.

Penang Food, Dim Sum, Chai Koay, Sungai Bakap

Besides chai koay, you can get the regular dim sum dishes too or you can order some other recommended dishes like fried tanghoon and fish soup. These are also favourites among the patrons to this shop.
