Cheese Prawn Bee Hoon with fresh, large prawns.
There is a restaurant called Tong Sheng that sells Cheese Prawn Bee Hoon that is very popular. The chef learnt his trade in Hong Kong and decided to bring this wonderful dish back to Malaysia. Being extremely popular, please remember to call in advance to make reservations if you do not wish to queue and waste time. We queued to close to an hour.
The Prawn Bee Hoon is delicious – the soup is sweet and the prawns are huge (they look like mini lobsters) and fresh. A serving of medium was sufficient to feed the 5 of us (3 male, 2 ladies, reasonable eaters) and cost RM66.
As a tribute to my Swiss Cheese-Master, I, the young Padawan, must declare that this does not taste like cheese. The taste of the so-called “cheese” is more akin to condensed milk than cheese. Note that I have been trained by a Swiss on cheeses, so my standards are elevated. That being said, whether it tastes like cheese to you or not, it is still a pleasant dish.
