First, a big thanks to Scott B. who sent this my way – it arrived a couple days ago and I did the unboxing today and now it’s getting reviewed tomorrow. I’m really stoked! Well, what is it? Hokkien Mee is a strong prawn soup with a great oiliness and noodle. I’ve had it in Penang quite a few times at multiple places – and it’s really great stuff. Go to Penang. You won’t be disappointed. Let’s give it a try!
