There are Two Varieties of Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun:
1. Hong Kong Congee Shop Chee Cheong Fun – in roll shape (chee cheong fun means pig intestines noodles which it resembles).
It comes in Sesame Paste-Sauce, Teem Cheong (sweet sauce), sesame seeds, and soy sauce.
Served in traditional Hong Kong Congee Shops.
2. Hong Kong Dim Sum Filling Chee Cheong Fun – in wider roll shape with optional meat fillings such as Char Siew (bbq pork), Har (prawn), or Ngau (beef).

Ipoh’s Best Chee Cheong Fun: Mr Fong Of Thean Chun
Fong used to operate at the Canteen in St. Michael’s Institution Ipoh for many years.
My late father, family, cousins, and I simply loved the plain Har My (dried shrimps) Chee Cheong Fun in Teem Cheong (sweet sauce), Lat Cheong (chili sauce), fried shallots, and sesame seeds.
