Today, we purposely ventured further than the regular Bayan Lepas area for something different.

Honestly, we grew bored eating things around here but lunch time was rather limited.. so what choices do we have? Aiyah, for today, never mind lah~!

Finding parking here during lunch time can be challenging as well and it is pretty much packed too. We had to go a few round before finding a spot, phew~!! Stomach playing drums orchestra already. lolx

Genting Kopitiam chu cheong fun: that is our target for today. When we arrived, we could see almost every table has chu cheong fun plate. No doubt this is one of the best chu cheong fun stalls in Penang and some people were purposely here just for it.

The chu cheong fun is quite soft and stretchy. The thickness is just right like koay teow and it will not taste like a lump when you put into your mouth.

The chu cheong fun was sprinkled with sesame seeds which produced a bit of fragrance when served to us. But our experienced was that sometimes these sesame seeds could stick at the gap of your teeth which could be uncomfortable. That would be something to pay attention to when you do not take good care of your teeth, like us …

What we like about the chee cheong fun at this stall is the prawn paste used. In fact, this stall is famous for its prawn paste that it is the best we have tasted. It did not smell “chao cho” nor too salty. How did they manage to cover up the smelly prawn paste, was there additional ingredients put inside the paste? Guess, it must be the owners’ secret recipe… hehe

The tnee cheoh was quite thick and creamy. Tam Ciak said the sauce was a little too sweet for him but Fei Fei liked it well. We added some chili too to make it spicy.

    yes the best chee cheong fun around!! *thumbs up*

    I wonder too what they put to get rid of the 'chao cho' taste. Some say they add peanut butter to the sauce. Is it true?

    They got a name for this stall leh. We call it TOR TAU JAM (Peanut Butter) Chee Cheong Fun because of its stickiness and color.

    The asam laksa at this kopitiam also is said a branch of Air Itam kek lok si stall.

    Thanks for sharing the precious info...
    now we know why the prawn paste is different from others. Adding the peanut paste definitely make the smell and taste more fragrant.

    We have not just regular hawkers but also creative hawkers who know how to add "special" ingredients to make food nice... Keep it up~!

    Hey Tua Pui :),

    Next time, try out the curry mee stall at the coffee shop behind Genting. Its one of the best I've tasted so far.

    However do note that there are 2 owners running that stall. The owner in the morning makes nicer curry mee than the owner in the evening.

    Hi there,

    Yes, Huat Koay had been there before and he did tell us before.... but we're not sure if he's gone to the right one... hahaha

    *Pssst*

    The owner's secret ingredient is actually an 'open secret' amongst Penangiates, especially those who grew up in the Island Glades area.

    The secret ingredient is..... *drum roll plzzz*......

    "...It did not smell “chao cho”...said the sauce was a little too sweet for him..." <---is becoz they added CARAMEL (some claim it's Peanut Butter).

    Yes, the secret ingredient is 'Caramel'. :)))

    Haha, talking about this Chee Cheong Fun let me thought of the scary incident that happened in the kopitiam last time.

    ~Pek Yau!!!

    I was enjoying this 'Best Chee Cheong Fun in the World' when 2 hawkers each holding a BIG knife in their hand start fighting there!!! Maybe they are arguing on the secret ingredient of the Chee Cheong Fun paste...huh...so scary~~~

     
  19. Penang Tua Pui |

    FwuKai,

    Wow.. that had got to be one of the best real life drama you had seen. With all the adrenaline pumping telling your body be prepared to take flight if the fight went worse....Got to be an experience of a lifetime, hope that's the last time you'll experience it.. ok? :)

    Still, it could had been something interesting... hehe
