Chinese Noodles and Dumplings (中国福建拌面。扁肉。饺子) @ Lebuh Tye Sin, Georgetown, Penang.
For a plate of straight-forward, simple but delicious Chinese Noodles (somewhat similar to Mee Pok), make your way to Lebuh Tye Sin. Housed in one of the heritage houses along the 4th Street (Lebuh Tye Sin), the unpretentious stall manned by a Chinese lady opens as early as 7 am. Expect no sophisticated setting but a few simple tables and chairs placed outside of their residence. The stall has limited offering but good enough to satisfy even those with stubborn palate.
Dry Chinese Noodles/ 拌面 (Rm 4.50)
Pork Dumplings/ 饺子 (Rm 0.80/ each)
The flat, yellow noodles were cooked to the right springiness and tossed in light Soy Sauce and Lard, served with Dumplings. The noodles were delicious and lightly flavored; the chili-lovers can opt to add a dash of their home-made Chili paste to spice things up. When we thought the noodles were a little too dry after a few bites, there was this Dumpling-Seaweed Soup to complement the noodles. The Pork Dumplings were equally delectable, they were tossed in a concoction of Dark Vinegar and Soy Sauce, the acidic tinge cuts through the greasiness and offers another layer of dimension (for those who can understand... there's this Chinese saying that goes by 饺子不蘸醋，吃起来像抹布). None of the items here disappoint and for the extremely affordable price tag, we'd see ourselves coming back for more.
