888 Hokkien Mee (GPS: 5.32663, 100.29123) is a coffee shop in Bayan Baru that sells only Hokkien Mee. It operates daily from 5:30 pm to 12:00 midnight. The coffee shop occupies the back portion of a house facing Jalan Mahsuri.
Parking is a bit of a problem. Being a low-abiding person, I would not advise you to park along Jalan Mahsuri, as there is no parking allowed. Instead, there is ample parking space along Lorong Mahsuri 10. From there, it is just a short walk across to 888 Hokkien Mee.

In addition to the regular Hokkien Mee, you can also order Lor Mee or a combination Hokkien Lor Mee. You can also call for extra ingredients such as spare ribs, additional noodles and so on. Having tried 888 Hokkien Mee, I find the taste quite good, though a bit salty. Portion size for the regular bowl is also quite small. The spare ribs is however succulent and tasty. My wife is however completely unimpressed with this Hokkien Mee.
Lately however, I have been hearing that the taste has deteriorated and the service is unfriendly, and based on the comments on my Facebook Group, I think I will not return to taste test this stall yet.
Penang is famous as a street food destination, so I am often asked, what I like to eat. Since this same question is being repeated to me over and over, I decided to create a page to answer it, so that I never have to do it in person ever again!
