Unlike the Chee Cheong Fun style in Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong, Penang’s Chee Cheong Fun is special in its won way where the steamed rice rolls are eaten with its secret recipe sauce. The sauce is what sets it different in Penang. Each hawker stall that sells Chee Cheong Fun will claim that their stall has the tastiest sauce. The above picture was from the stall located at the Genting Coffeeshop, in Greenlane, Penang. This particular stall’s sauce is made using peanut butter paste as one of its ingredients.
Although Chee Cheong Fun is usually available at any time, it is commonly taken during breakfast or brunch.
