Chee Cheong Fun – Famous Malaysian Cuisine

If you’re looking for a flavoursome dish that’s sure to tantalise your taste buds, the famous chee cheong fun of Penang certainly fits the brief. This steamed rice roll represents Malaysia’s diverse culture: a traditional Chinese dish that has become popular throughout its adopted country.

A typical serving of chee cheong fun includes a generous portion of steamed rice rolls – like rice noodle sheets – filled with shrimp paste and topped with chilli sauce or sweet sauce (tee cheow). The texture is soft and silky, yet slightly firm to the bite, with a subtle sweetness that complements the savory flavours.

What makes this dish so special is its combination of texture and flavours – delicate rolls, sweet shrimp paste, spicy chilli – in a perfect balance. You will find chee cheong fun all over Malaysia in food courts and hawker stalls, but it’s a must if you’re in Penang!
