Penang Char Hor Fun @ Kedai Kopi Leong Huat Seng, Penang

Penang [檳城] • 10 OCTOBER 2013
Sar Hor Fun (炒河粉) is a hawker dish of broad rice noodles. It is a hawker food of Cantonese origin believed to have originated from the town of Sar Hor, which is today part of Tianhe district in the city of Guangzhou, in Guangdong Province, China. 

Nowadays, there is some confusion resulting in the dish being called Char Hor Fun, taken in Hokkien to mean "fried hor fun" or "fried broad rice noodles".

Sar Hor Fun is similar to that used in Char Koay Teow, and indeed both are from the same family, preparation of Sar Hor Fun in Penang is very different from the stir-fried Char Koay Teow. The Sar Hor Fun noddles are broader than that of Char Koay Teow and appears elastic and slippery.

Hawkers selling Sar Hor Fun usually sells other cooked noodle dishes such as Yee Foo Mee and Hokkien Char. A plate of Hokkien Char costs between RM5.00 to RM6.00. You can order it with or without egg, which costs an additional 50 sen.
