Chee Cheong Fun is a dish that’s found in many places in Klang Valley. However, most versions here are of central region, where the sweet sauce is watery, or that they are served with curry, and most of the time, together with yong tau foo, which admittedly I’m also a fan of.

However, being from Penang, my favorite version of chee cheong fun is still the version served up north on the Pearl of the Orient – a version that’s ultra simple – just the rice noodle roll with sweet, thick, dark sauce that’s not entirely unlike rojak sauce, and then topped with sesame and fried shallots with a side of sambal. (edit: of course it’s also with prawn paste, this was something I failed to mention)

I also like mine still rolled instead of unwrapped (the usual way of serving)

While you get them readily on Penang island, my go to in Klang Valley is the little stall at Restoran O&S at Taman Paramount in Petaling Jaya.

For RM 2.60, I get my serving of proper chee cheong fun that hits all the spots. The sauce is thick & flavorful with a hint of peanut butter (perhaps?) and not overly sweet at the same time. The chee cheong fun itself too is soft and smooth as it should.

The restaurant gets busy over weekends, be prepared to share tables.

  1. even after three years in george town, one of the foods i never ended up loving with penang ccf. the ccf i grew up with in malacca was the lighter hk-style ccf, so that’s the style that’s closest to my heart and stomach 🙂

  2. Very surprised that you omitted the most important feature of Penang CCF,that is is served with hae ko (prawn paste).The stall at O&S will ask the customer whether they want it with or without hae ko

    I prefer CCF with the Red Sauce. Nothing beats that. You cannot see much of the Red Sauce anymore #extinction

    • kekeke: red sauce is.. mehhh. to me. haha.

      • kekeke rosberg

        It has to be done right!!! The best dish I had was a guy from Menglembu long ago and I don’t think he is around anymore 🙁 Also need to add abit of the mushroom sauce #RIPrecipe

  4. Yes, I thought your description was ‘off’ too when I read it yesterday (without the mention of har ko)…haha! 😉 This is my go-to place for Penang-style ccf too…that har ko paste is rather salty and needs to be balanced by the chilli sauce. I don’t think I tasted any sweetness in it (aka peanut butter?…that’s pretty left-field, I must say)! :O

    • eatwhateatwhere: the famous one at Penang’s Genting Restaurant on the island itself was famous due to the peanut butter! I suspect this one MAY have but not entirely 100% sure.

  5. Looks like you’re everywhere! You always travel here and there to eat eh?

  6. I would prefer a thicker sauce to a watery one.

  7. Yes, I’ve been here…twice, I think. Very crowded every time.

  8. I like CCF with prawn paste!
