Bridge Street Hokkien Mee 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.
