Ah Huat Pek Char Hor Fun @ Lok Khoon Coffee Shop, Balik Pulau, Penang.

At the far end of Balik Pulau is Kampung Jalan Baru where Lok Khoon Coffee Shop is located, the place is popular amongst the local residents for being the de-facto breakfast place in the neighborhood but it has gained a lot of attention lately due to the broadcasting of TV show introducing the place. Many travel far just to have a taste on this unique dish- Deep Fried Hor Fun and it is offered by one of the food stalls in Lok Khoon- Ah Huat Pek Char Hor Fun. Apart from the Deep Fried Hor Fun, there are plenty of other local delights as well. Worth checking out if you are in the vicinity but not something that I would travel all the way there to eat.

Deep Fried Hor Fun (Rm 6.50)

Stir Fried Bee Hoon (Rm 5.50)

Hokkien Char (Rm 5.50)

Fried Prawn Fritters with Fried Tofu (Rm 12)

Fried Oyster Pancake (Rm 12/ small)

Curry Duck

Braised Pork Trotter

Braised Tofu and Eggs

Assam Fish

Probably the best seller, Ah Huat Pek's Deep Fried Hor Fun was very unique and second to none. The Hor Fun was first deep fried to a light, crispy texture and served with the delicious, gooey gravy. The contrast in texture was what made the dish interesting. It was however, very greasy and can be monotonous towards the end. Sharing is definitely recommended. There were also other items available at the place but the Fried Prawn Fritters with Fried Tofu were probably something worth trying. The Prawn Fritters worked well with the Chili sauce, the addictive crunchy texture and the unique smoky aroma from the Prawns was the real draw factor for this dish.
