Bridge Street Hokkien MeeBridge Street Hokkien Mee (15 December, 2012)

Bridge Street Hokkien Mee (GPS: 5.32829, 100.28427) or "Kio3 Thau2 Hokkien Mee", is a coffee shop selling Hokkien Mee in Sia Boey, Penang. The name "Kio3Thau2" means "at the head of the bridge", in reference to its location next to Anson Bridge, on the north side of the Prangin Canal, at the start of Bridge Street (now known as Jalan CY Choy). In addition to Hokkien Mee, the stall also sells Lor Mee.

Having heard of the Bridge Street Hokkien Mee, I gave it a try on 15 December 2012. The surroundings do not appear very hygenic - I can see an elderly lady preparing the prawns beside the Prangin Canal. Apart from that, the stall itself is not dirty. The opens daily except for Monday, and operates from 7:00 am in the morning to 2:30 pm in the evening. Apparently the stall has appeared on the CNN Travel webpage, so that's the recommendation from a foreign tastebud. In my opinion, if you are willing to overlook the surrounding hygiene, you will find that the taste is not bad, though a bit too salty.

Getting to the Bridge Street Hokkien Mee

If you're from the Komtar Bus Terminal, walk along Jalan Ria until Prangin Road, then turn right and head east on Prangin Road, cross the intersection with Carnarvon Street. At the junction with Beach Street, turn right and you will see the coffee shop on the Beach Street side of Anson Bridge.


The Bridge Street Hokkien Mee opened a branch in Bayan Baru from 1 February, 2013. However, if I am not mistaken, that branch has closed down.

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!
