I was having lunch with Damien and Julian who’s from Penang and I asked Damien, what is the must eat place you will go to when you go back to Penang. He say well, he will usually visit Siew Fong for their carrot cakes and chee cheong fun.

So for the last day of our mini makantrip to Penang couple weeks ago, the whole gang stopped by at Siew Fong Lye for breakfast. The famous carrot cake stall which also sells otak-otak is a stall located outside the coffeeshop. Another famous stall is the chee cheong fun which is located outside as well. You can order all these and sit inside.

The rest of the gang just went crazy ordering everything from pasembor, char koay teow, hokkien mee, char hor fun, etc.

The carrot cake stall seems to be famous, even have Axian’s poster hanging there, but maybe business is too good, we think its a bit over cooked and the otak-otak is ok only la.

The chee cheong fun is good, Penang style with prawn paste, sweet sauce and chili.

The food is good, price and portion is Penang standard, so affordable but allowing you to eat more ;). Overall its a good and very local place to come for breakfast and get a variety of local food.
