PP Noodles Station @ Bay Avenue, Penang.
It is always a hard decision for budget-watchers to settle the stomach in the shopping mall as a meal in high-end restaurants often costs a bomb. If you are on a tight budget while doing some window-shopping at Queensbay Mall, you may want to have your lunch here, at PP Noodles Station. Simply walk across the street from the exit right next to Starbucks and Morganfield's, you should be able to find PP Noodles Station right in front of you. The Pan Mee-specialist has an extensive menu; while most of them are noodle-dishes, rice lovers will still be able to ease their crave here. The wallet-friendly prices could be one of the valid explanations to why the place is often thronged with regular patrons during lunch hours. Nothing outstanding about their Pan Mee but they offer a great variety of Chili-dips; a great place for individuals who like the burning sensation.
I actually enjoyed my plate of Chicken Noodles (Rm 5.90/ Dry); a plate of seeming oversimplified noodles with shredded blanched Chicken Breast. PP Noodle Station is very generous with the portion, the hearty portion should be more than sufficient even for those with big appetites. The broth/ sauce was good and seasoned with reasonable amount of flavors. Add a generous amount of Chili Paste to the noodle-dish could bring this plate of wholesomeness to another dimension. A satisfying yet extremely affordable meal.
Back to the basic, we had Original Pan Mee (Rm 4.90/ Dry) drenched in Dark Soy Sauce and completed with Deep Fried Anchovies, julienned Black Fungus and minced Meat. The noodles were okay, pretty standard but the concoction was a little dry for our liking. Fortunately, there were plenty of Chili dips to salvage the mayhem. No, I am not complaining, it was certainly more than okay for such a reasonable price.
