Little Jetty Cafe 小船頭白米粉 @ Simpang Ampat, Penang.

A short drive from Bukit Tambun toll (towards Eco World Projects at Simpang Ampat)) will land you at Little Jetty Cafe 小船頭白米粉, a curious but busy spot right next to the busy road. It's hard not to notice the signage that says "White Vermicelli Noodles"... a popular Singaporean stir fry dish that is extremely uncommon to Penang. The place also offers the usual Chu-Char dishes as well as some local Western dishes. A worth-stopping by place especially if you are in the vicinity... for a casual, inexpensive and satisfying meal. 

Signature White Bee Hoon (Rm 6)

Stir Fried Hor Fun (Rm 6)

Tom Yum Soup (Rm 8)

Steamed Flower Clams with Spicy and Sour Sauce (Rm 15)

Signature Talapia with Fried Chinese Pickled Radish (Rm 20)

On top of the usual menu, there's also a display counter available for diners to hand pick their preferred ingredients to cook as Tom Yum or Clear soup. We opted for their Tom Yum Soup and thought it was quite a disappointment. Back to the main stir fry dishes. It was our first experience on the White Vermicelli Noodles... almost like the Singaporean Hokkien Mee- Vermicelli Noodles were cooked in broth and served with meat and seafood. We were expecting the noodles to be overly soft and slouchy but they turned out to be alright... even better with some serving of Sambal. Stir Fried Hor Fun on the other hand, was nothing out of the ordinary but for the portion, Rm 6 was a steal. The Steamed Flower Clams with Spicy and Sour Sauce was good but their Signature Talapia with Fried Chinese Pickled Radish was even better. The Fish was deep fried to golden brown and topped with Chinese Pickled Radish. It was crispy and the flavor combo was good, extremely good value for a mere Rm 20.
