Chee Cheong Fun

For years, hubbs and I have steered clear from eating chee cheong fun. The chee cheong fun that I am referring to is the Penang chee cheong fun, the kind that is served with “hair-ko” (prawn paste in Hokkien) and sesame seeds.
We just didn’t like the taste of it, and hubbs even said it gave him a headache. For me, it was just plain weird.

“Hair-ko” in laksa is divine, so that’s not the culprit. Neither was it the chee cheong fun, cos I LOVE to eat “toong-ku-chap-chee-cheong fun” (chee cheong fun with mushroom sauce), especially the one I get from dear Ipoh.

But recently, I think last week, hubbs suggested we bite the bullet and try chee cheong fun (what??!!)… Anyway, my parents claim that the chee cheong fun in Super Tanker is the best ever, so we figured, might as well go for the best, right?

You know what..? It didn’t taste THAT bad at all. In fact, to cut a long story short, since that day, we have gone back and walloped 2 more plates. We’ve not have the courage to finish one plate *each* yet, but I don’t see why not?

    Super tanker one where got good. The one at Genting coffee shop or Sunshine food court even better.

    The Giddy Tiger sez: Is it? I’ve not tried the one at Genting, but I see almost every table ordering it. My parents have tried though, and they say it is superb too…

    Yes, Genting (at Island Glades) serves the best Penang CCF I’ve tasted so far, perhaps due some “extra ingredient”, suspected to be peanut butter :o), mixed into the prawn paste. But personally, I still prefer the Ipoh old-fashion CCF with light soy sauce, diluted tim cheong (sweet red sauce), sesame seeds, pickled green chillies and yam cake.

    The Giddy Tiger says: I love the Ipoh CCF too, being an Ipoh girl myself 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
