Vinegar Lor Mee @ Hwa Lam Kopitiam, Lebuh Carnavon, Penang

Hwa Lam Kopitiam gets exceptional happening when the dusk set in, contrary to the usual quiet Lebuh Carnavon at night. There is only a stall in the modest kopitiam, selling various Fujian dishes such as Mee Sua Gor, Bak Kee Soup, Char Hor Fun, Singapore Bee Hoon and the most peculiar ones - Vinegar Lor Mee.

Priced at RM 7, the Vinegar Lor Mee is not something we see everyday. The serving bowl looks plain and dull with only yellow noodles, but rest assured rest of the ingredients are beneath the noodle. Unlike the conventional starchy soup, the soup here is more liquid and black in colour, then possessing an unique flavour arising from the vinegar. Add on a few droplets of black vinegar provided to give it a stronger scent depending on your personal preference.

We quite enjoyed the Fried Hor Fun. It was fried with decent moisture and great wok-hei, something which we felt it hit the right marks.

On the other hand, both the hot and ice coffee served at the kopitiam were awful. The hot coffee has no taste and akin drinking plain water, while the ice coffee only has sugary taste. Priced at RM 1.70 per cup, that was a real rip off!
