Penang Style Chee Cheong Fun

Chee Cheong Fun originates from Guangdong but has been a part of the Chinese Malaysian cuisine since the 18th century.

Throughout the years, as the dish goes through localization, a variety of Chee Cheong Fun can be found all around Malaysia.

From sweet to savoury, to even soupy version of the dish, we got it all in Malaysia!

The one here is most popular in Penang where the sauce is made out of shrimp paste.

For health check, 1 tablespoon of shrimp paste contains iron, calcium, and protein and totally safe for pregnant mommies.
