I had the opportunity of trying both the char koay teow and economy bihun. The koay teow cost RM3.50 and is "not bad". We also ordered the "large" economy bihun. It cost RM1.50, which we find rather steep for economy bihun. In our opinion, it is "boh3 ho1 liau3", or in English, "lacking".
Hock Poh Lye Cafe can be reached on foot from the Weld Quay Ferry & Bus Terminal. Take the pedestrian bridge across Weld Quay, then turn right and walk along Weld Quay until junction of China Street Ghaut (where you see the Malayan Railway Building). Continue on China Street Ghaut. Go across Beach Street then continue on China Street until intersection with Penang Street, and you'd find Hock Poh Lye Cafe on the right.
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!
