Verdict: I was largely contented with my Hokkien Mee supper. I know there are many good Hokkien Mee at Penang but 888 Hokkien Mee will definitely scores up to your expectation.
What I like most about this dish is the soup – very rich in taste; the rice vermicelli is also just nice and not too soggy (I know we are not talking about pasta here but what the hell, it is perfectly al dente!) We added some extra ingredients (roast pork) and it goes very well with the overall dish.
What I liked is there are many side dishes like pork ribs, crisp pork, porkballs, fish balls and many more. There aren't many hokkien mee here with such variety. Prices starts from rm4 for a large bowl with surcharges for its side dishes ranging from rm1-rm2. The outlet is still new so cleanliness and comfort is not an issue. Staff are friendly unlike the 888 hokkien mee nearby. Another new place to add to my lunch list.
Other than Hokkien Mee, they do sell Lor Mee (Dark Sauce Starchy Noodles) too. The soup is nice and the starchiness is just right. The adding of vinegar-ed garlic into the Lor Mee making it a perfect one.
