The Kuala Jalan Bahru Hokkien Mee is a popular stall selling Hokkien Mee in Balik Pulau. Known in Hokkien as the Sin Lor Thau Hokkien Mee, it operates as a cottage industry out of a private house along Jalan Kuala Jalan Baru, on the west coast of Balik Pulau. The shop sells Hokkien Mee as well as Laksa.

The Kuala Jalan Bahru Hokkien Mee has a reputation that outweighs its humble surroundings. Often visitors from outside Penang make a food pilgrimage to Balik Pulau simply to enjoy it. This is what I observed judging from the many cars parked at the compound, many bearing out-of-state number plates.

And how's the Hokkien Mee? Personally, having tried it, I can't help but wonder what the fuss was about. Due to the number of customers, I had to wait a while before receiving my order.
