Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle – ?????? stall along Jalan Sutera, Taman Sentosa

The Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle stall (N1.49305 E103.77090) is located along Jalan Sutera of Taman Sentosa – Johor Bahru. It’s easy to locate if you aware of previous Elextrolux office and opposite the current 7-Eleven convenience shop. The stall started since the late 80s, it was about 25 years in business till now which run by a owner from Penang.

I started to patronized the area since year 87, and yes…until today and the taste of the noodle is ‘Still’ same as before, well maintain!

All the 3 types of noodles above were served with a spoon of vinegar + minced garlic to make the gravy (or soup) more appetizing, you can noticed it from the photo above. These type of combination is the common way where the Penang peoples enjoy the meal, and some of the Johorian might not get used to it.

We liked 3 types of the noodles above! Satisfied with the gravy and the taste.
The Penang Hokkien prawn noodle does not serve with a Big size prawns, but oppositely…only small prawns. And the soup will not have a strong rich taste of prawn, but just normal…I like the fried garlic aroma too! It went blended well with the noodles.

I won’t use the word – “Authentic” to describe the popular Penang food, because the definitions of ‘Authentic’ taste are very wide…the hawker food is prepare and cook by many different Penang peoples and more or less having similar taste, but might Not be the same…these are the debates always been around us. For me, whether you like it or hate it…as long as the food is ‘Tasty’! ‘Authentic’ is not really A priority…
The noodles above cost RM5 each.
