Choon Prawn Mee House.
I ate my first mee yoke or prawn mee when I was about nine years old.
Back in the 60's there was this Penang guy named Ah Choon who sells one of the best mee yoke from his mobile tricycle.
My mum and her mahjong kakis would wait for him during lunch hour.
The sounds of tock, tock, tock make by clucking two pieces of bamboo with his hands was his signal.
The mee yoke was real authentic Penang style.
Later in the 70's, he graduated to a three wheelers motorcycle.
In the 80's he operated from a stall in Lin Seng Garden - we used to go for our
weekend breakfast and after a few years he left the scene.
I thought Choon Prawn Mee House was his but it was not !
The prawn mee served here is authentic but there is much chillies oil which can be quite
choking, the shrimps with it's tail intact is way too sweet and the soup is also sweet which
empowers the prawn broth.
At Rm6.50 a bowl-it's needs some tweaking.
