Penang Hokkien Mee
Penang is renowned for this noodle dish and you can easily find a Hokkien Mee stall in almost any hawker centre or along the streets of Penang. This noodle dish is a preparation of cooked noodles (mainly yellow wheat noodles and rice noodles) served with soup, made mainly from pork and prawns. The dish is usually laced with grounded chillies and garnished with some vegetable, egg and prawns.   In other parts of Peninsular Malaysia, the dish is sometimes called ‘Penang Prawn/Hokkien Mee’ or ‘Prawn Mee’.
