Big Face Pancake (taikaumeen)

Before I forget, these yummy foodstuff were from Free School Garden, Terengganu Road, Penang. I wanted to take the name of stalls and the place where people were eating but my friend cautioned me not to, wor.. They might scold me wor... must ask permission first, he said..

never mind la, in that case, I just took my own food photos ... sure no one will scold..

Ok, let me show you what is my favourite pancake.... even in IPOH, cannot find this nice la...

when i was taking this pic,
the paper flew up and covered a portion of it..
shy pancake..

nah..this is the pancake.. called
Big Face pancake
(in cantonese tai kau meen)

there it is.. does it look yummy??
with brown sugar, peanuts and sweet corns...
it was steaming hot...
so must eat it quick...
before it turned cold..

and....this is popiah...
a different type of pancake skin
wrapping up some goodies inside...

Tomorrow I will display my main dish, grilled fish wrapped in aluminium foil ... and some ala carte.. and NOW, I am going out for my dinner... (I really torture myself, at times...)
