Bee Tai Mak @ Pek Kong Cheng Bukit Mertajam

mee soup

Right beside Pek Kong Cheng at Bukit Mertajam are 2 noodle stalls. One of them sells Bee Tai Mak, a type of clear soup noodles topped with minced meat. Priced @ RM2.50, it looks and tastes like Koay Teow Soup when ordered with koay teow.

chili sauce

But the main attraction at this noodle stall is the self made chilli sauce. It is very diluted with a spicy and salty taste.

The chiili sauce goes very well with the noodles. To really enjoy the noodles, a recommended way is to take a spoonful of the chilli sauce and pour on top of the noodles.


Here is the version if orderd with Bee Tai Mak, I never really like the texture so I usually order yellow noodles and beehoon. However, it is more popular with the older generations and it certainly brings back the flavor of the past.

And this is the obligatory Tok Tok Mee that everyone must try ;)
