penang-hokkien-meeHokkien Mee, commonly known as prawn noodles or prawn mee is a dish of either yellow noodles or rice noodles (or a mixture of both) served in a thick prawn and pork soup garnished with kangkung (water spinach) and bean sprouts. It has a strong, spicy and flavorful prawn taste. A bowl of Hokkien Mee is usually served with slices of boiled eggs, small cooked shrimps, thin slices of pork,  sprinkled with crispy fried shallots and a spoonful of chili paste.

Some will add crunchy golden cubes of deep-fried  lard to jazz up the bowl of Hokkien Mee. Normally a basic bowl costs between RM2.50 to RM3.50. Some stalls offer special toppings like pork ribs, mantis prawns, fish balls and roast pork at additional charge. It is slightly spicy but you can adjust the spiciness by adding the amount of chili paste.

It is one of the most popular hawker food in Penang and you can find it in many places through out the day and night.
