Kafe Ping Hooi (GPS: 5.41456, 100.33411) is a coffee shop at the junction of Carnarvon Street and Malay Street, in George Town, Penang. The shop has been operating for many decades.

I remember Kafe Ping Hooi from the time I was small, when my father used to take me there to enjoy a bowl of "Fan Seet" - a glass noodle dish which is similar to "Tang Hooi Thng". I remember my father telling me that we should enjoy fan seet while we can, as the seller was an old man, and we weren't sure how long he would live to continue selling fan seet. Ironically, the fan seet stall continued to operate years after my own father has passed on.

I did not return to Kafe Ping Hooi for many years until recently, when an online acquaintance recommended that I try the Char Koay Teow. I remember enjoying the Char Koay Teow there many years ago, but have forgotten its taste. When I returned to try the Char Koay Teow here, I realised that it is indeed recommendable. I wrote about this stall called Tiger Char Koay Teow right here.

Other hawker food sold at Kafe Ping Hooi include Lor Mee, Lor Bak, and Ak Tui Mee Suah.

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!
