I don’t know about you, but I find Penang food portions quite tiny. A small bowl is never enough. rif and I have been patronising another chee cheong fun stall in Pulau Tikus for more than 4 years, but after trying this chee cheong fun, we realised we’ve been missing out.

This humble pushcart has been around for 60 years or so and the rice rolls, eaten with prawn paste and chilli sauce, are a class of their own. It’s best to come early, as they often run out before noon.

Opened rice rolls

You get to choose between an ‘open’ or ‘close’ roll. The latter is served in its original state, while the ‘open’ version is taken apart and loosened into thin sheets. Like kuay teow.

Chee Cheong Fun – open

Chee Cheong Fun – close

Between the two, I liked the opened version better as it absorbs more prawn paste. The paste is thick and gluey with a pronounced aroma from the dried prawns. The prawn flavour was well balanced and the paste was very ‘shiok’ with chilli sauce.

Definitely coming back for more chee cheong fun and the kuay teow th’ng a few doors away. 🙂
