Best Fish Head Mee Hoon Soup in Penang - Joo Leong Cafe

I'm not sure why I used to call this place fish head "Mee Hoon", perhaps the more accurate should be the seafood Mee Hoon/noodle or porridge. But not exactly seafood too because the most delicious food that I like here is the "Tian Ji"(田鸡) or frog. In fact, frog and "Tian Ji" is not the same. "Tian Ji" is one kind of  frogs that lives in paddy field. It looks very ugly in the skins (very rough and not smooth) where else frog's skin is very smooth.

At night, it is mee hoon, noodle soup and porridge. In the morning, the breakfast is very famous too, served with half boiled eggs and famous toasted bread! You still can order boiled eggs and toasted bread at night but for the mee hoon soup, it is only available for dinner.

Food - 9/10

I honestly very enjoy the food here. 2 food that you must try here, the mee hoon soup and the toasted bread. For mee hoon, noodle soup and porridge, you can choose what you want as below.

It serves other stuff too in the morning such as "Nasi Lemak", fried mee hoon/noodle but there are just so so. If you're really want to try more, just try out the half boiled egg which is very famous here. At night, other food that you may find here are "Satay" and salted chicken but those food are just normal.

Price - 5/10

It is very expensive in my opinion. One meal can cost you more than RM10 depends on what you order, it could be even more expensive. I've no idea why some reviews said the price here is reasonable. I don't really agree with that. But if you don't mind $$$, go for it!

Overall - 8/10

Highly recommend to have your dinner and breakfast here if you drop by Penang!
