One of the best Char Kuey Teow place in Georgetown. What makes them famous is they use charcoal to cook Char Kuey Teow instead of using Liquefied Petroleum Gas. To be honest the taste is different using different kind of fuel for cooking. Ordered the Char Kuey Teow (RM10) that serve with three big prawns, bean sprouts and some cockles. Don't ask for extra spicy or no spicy, it might not taste like what it should be. If you worry bout the hot weather, they do have Ice Kacang too.

An ages kopitiam that located in Raja Uda, which you can tell from the interior design. Not really sure either it is introduce by any bloggers around penang, but it seems to have a long queue in front of the kedai kopi, waiting for their turn to have this, prawn mee. The portion is not really big, serve with fish balls, char siew, fish cakes, fried onion and bean sprouts. The taste might not strong as what you think, which you can tell from the colour. Not that spicy if you concern about that. Their Cham ice is a bit sweet, not really can taste the flavour of the coffee and tea, just sweet.

7 Village is a franchises that specialist on Kuey Teow around Penang. Not sure is there any around Georgetown but in Butterworth, it seems like quite easy to be found, like fast food restaurant. Their Dry Kuey Teow (RM8.50) is quite special as they serve with soft boiled egg, some pork meats, fish balls, vegetables, lards and choices of noodles. The portion is not really that big, definitely not enough for guys, taste is like normal Kuey Teow. On the side note, it does not serve with a soup like you can get it in KL. Their interior actually reminds me of HK Char Chan Teng. They also serve toast and some side dishes.

It's a bit tricky to reach the place if you never been there as there is only a small signboard that show the direction of going into the restaurant. Among the Penang lang (people) around Butterworth, it's really famous as the restaurant is introduced by Ah Xian through Astro before. Ong Cheng Huat serves only few kinda of food, but still it is family oriented kinda place. Their Teochew Steamed Fish (潮州蒸魚) is not like those typical teochew style, having tomatoes on it but the sauce was good, salted in flavour but the most important thing is, fish is really fresh. The must-order-dish : Hot Soup Octopus (熱湯八爪魚). The normal octopus is too chewy until you can't bite it into two like chewing gum, but this. Can't denied that the ingredient of what they used is fresh enough. You can actually tell even before eat it. Huge and juicy, like you just caught it from the sea and cook it right after that. Soy Bean Paste with Clams (豆醬炒蛤蜊) is good either. Although it is simple dish like home cook but I can confirm, it can amaze you with the goodness. Currently open from Tuesday until Sunday, from 11am until 5.30pm, closed on Monday.

Fun fact 101: When Penang people talk about Hokkien Mee, they might not talking the same thing as what you think. In Penang, Hokkien Mee means prawn mee. Penang is well-known with scrumptious local foods, but this is the best prawn Mee I had so far. The restaurant is located in Georgetown, same row with Kwong Wah Yit Poh. Was having too much of local foods, so ordered the Hokkien Mee without noodles. What makes them special is they will add on Siu Yok (燒肉) into the soup. However, due to they have to handle large number of customers, they charged RM0.50 per pcs of Siu Yok. Other than that, they also serve with pork belly, pork skin and prawns. The soup is very well cooked and strong in flavour, especially after you mix with the chili. There always have long queue, even it is late night. Make sure you be ready for a long wait.
