It was one evening when we had an appointment at food truck corner of Chulia Lane (Lorong Chulia). As usual, we departed early to avoid traffic,jam, so early that we had enough time to visit both Kuan Yin Temple and 20 Chulia Lane Cafe (GPS: 5.41901,100.33768) before our appointment. The cafe occupies ground floor of Penang Hainan Tan Clan Association. Parking-wise, not sure about you but we were grateful that we usually found a slot along the narrow Chulia Lane.

For those know us well, Wantan Mee is our favorite noodle. It was one weekend morning when we stumbled upon Chee Meng Cafe (GPS: 5.42129,100.33118) at Argyill Road, George Town, Penang.

No. So, we decided to give it a try, and we had no regret doing so as it was the first time we found out soup version of Wantan Mee tasted better than the usual dry Wan Tan Mee.
