Ah Seng Hokkien Prawn Mee 三条路炭烧福建面·卤面·福建卤 better known as the night Hokkien Mee (Hae Mee) stall in George Town, Penang is an old favorite for locals and tourists alike.
The stall housed in a shoplot along Gat Lebuh Presgrave (Sa Tiau Lor 三条路)/ Jalan C.Y. Choy has been dishing up bowls of Hokkien Mee and Lor Mee with a variety of add-on ingredients for dinner and supper.
As the name suggests, the focus is on the Hokkien prawn mee! It is a reasonable and filling fare, with a basic small bowl at RM4.50 and a large one at RM5.50. The dish in a shrimp & pork-based soup has the common ingredients of braised egg, prawns, lean pork slices and bean sprouts.
As with most Penang Hokkien Mee, it is served with a spoonful of spicy chili paste and topped with deep-fried shallots. It’s worth noting that the soup is kept heated over a charcoal fire.
