MM Noodles House (面面俱到) @ Lebuh Melayu, Georgetown, Penang.

It has almost become mandatory for cafes to come out with mural paintings in Penang recently, most of the newly opened cafes have at least one or two unique mural(s) painted and adorned the walls. However, this newly opened cafe has a rather unique and creative mural, a sketch of Penang's Chief Minister- YB Lim Guan Eng. Tucked in the heart of Georgetown, MM Noodles House is located at Lebuh Melayu, offering simple yet heart-warming dishes, one of their signature dishes being Hokkien Prawn Noodles. In fact, I thought the menu was overly simple, it's either a rice dish (daily special) or Hokkien Prawn Noodles. Seating is limited and it gets a little annoying when the customers are queuing to take photos with the mural, almost like a tourist attraction. A relief was the place is air-conditioned and dishes are reasonably priced. A worth-dropping by place if you are around the vicinity.

One of the unique and most attractive features in this cafe. 

One of the two dishes available- Hokkien Prawn Noodles (Rm 6), garnished with Water Spinach, Meat balls, Hard Boiled Egg, Bean Sprouts and finished with some Shrimps. Standard portion but the broth itself was brimming with flavors, not too heavy but possessed the sufficient seafood sweetness. It was even better with the addition of their home-made Chili Paste which further enlivened the dish. A rather straight-forward and authentic Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodles; a decent one though not the best yet.
