Three of my Favourite Hawker Stalls at Great Wellesley Food Court, Taman Chai Leng, Prai

This food court is located at the former Chai Leng Park Great Wellesley cinema. It is actually an extension of the cinema building. The three stalls that serve my favourite food are the curry mee, tua pan (wat tan hor in Cantonese, braised fried kueh teow) and char kueh teow. I ‘tar pau’ these for my late night supper when I was back in Butterworth recently. Curry Mee I have been eating the curry mee from this stall for the last 28 years. The owner of the stall has since passed away and his wife took over the business. I have acquired the taste of the curry mee from this stall and it is a must have whenever I go back to Butterworth! It is the best I had so far!

Tua Pan This is hor fun Cantonese style and in Penang we call it tua pan because the kueh teow that we used are wider than the normal hor fun. The tua pan in Penang is real tasty because the hor fun is fried to perfection in hot iron wok and the starchy soup is yummy

Char Kueh Teow This is Mr. Eng’s Char Kueh Teow that I featured in my post

Wow! This brings back memories! I remember eating here when I was a kid, but probably when it was just starting up with a couple of stalls and not the big food court it is now.
