This place is really good for lunch or eat whatever meal you would like! We found it and went like 4 times in one week! Really really tasty! Just go there and enjoy the food! Both places, the main and the branch are great so maybe one day to each other is a nice way to visit! Enjoy their food... More

This night-only hawker center and coffee shop is home to one of Penang's most famous prawn noodle according to local friends. It is considered one of the must-eat when visiting the island so we couldn't refuse the taste test. The venue has many stalls but you can't miss the large white signboard and the congregation of patrons. The cooked worked... More

Good and popular coffee shop. The moment your arrive here you'll know that this place is very popular with the locals. This place opens till the wee hours.

Best prawn mee in town 👍🏻. Can try its loh mee. Despite a long queue, it's worth the waiting. White curry also nice here. BBQ seafood so so. Abit pricy. Fried oysters also good. Loh bak's oil very black. For health wise, not recommended....

Tried the prawn mee from this famous outlet but was disappointed with the offering. It did not give me the oomph and it was simply overrated.... Only good thing is the outlet is opened till the wee hours.... Coffee is good though!

The price difference between the small and large bowl of noodles is only MYR0.50. It comes default with shrimps and half an egg. You can add other stuffs for extra $$. I added small intestines and pigs skin. The intestines is too tough. I tried 1 and didn't finish the rest. There is a weird taste to it too... the... More

We were recommended by the local taxi driver to try the laksa, lor mee, prawn mee. We also heard that the chicken rice isn't half bad.
