What I did Last Thursday In Penang

It was a day trip last Thursday to Penang. By the time we left Mount Miriam Hospital, it was around noon. As I am not so familiar with Penang (though I have been there numerous times), I drove around, sometimes bypassing the junction and ended up driving one big round again... *dont have to say it out, i admit i have no sense of direction*

Anyway, after some turnings here and there, we landed in New World Park, near Dorset Hotel..
It has been quite a long while since I last went there. This is one of the best food court I have ever been. So many types of food to choose from, couldn't really make up my mind what to eat... stomach not big enough to try more varieties and furthermore, only 3 of us.. so cannot taste much.... I ended up eating these only...


misua with herbal chicken drumstick
(strong aroma of the tongkwai)

khi ya kueh (thanks to Amy)
made of pulut flour and dipped with thick coconut syrup

and of course, a Must Have Ice Kacang
(supposed to be nicer shape
but only remembered to take pic
after a spoonful or 2 ..lol..)

  4. Ooooh I love herbal chicken! Yummy!

    The kuih looks so nice and of course I got a very sweet tooth, so the thick coconut syrup would definitely make me drool.

    Hmm.. somehow I prefer cendol over ais kacang :P.

    Good shots!

  25. This piece of land was left vacant for more than 3 decades after the then 'old' New World Amusement Park ceased operation. Glad this New World Park came back 'alive' again but as a food court. Echo Reanaclaire, love this new place very much, quite cooling, nice atmosphere and very spacious, and oh the food - bay tahan..ho ho ho liao (in hokkien - means cannot tolerate, simply the best)

    ReplyDelete
  26. yes, Cheah..hohoho liao.. this weekend, i might go again... taking my kids this time.. want to try the fried koay teow gravy style...drooling...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cath J, go get one bowl now! hahaha...

    ReplyDelete
  28. You going again, wanna try the fresh c-o-c-o-n-u-t or 'buko' as what we learned from our Filipino friends or learn another new word from the North called 'nyior' in Malay. It is at the junction of Abu Siti Lane and Burmah Road quite close to New World Park about 200 yards. This time not apek selling but aneh selling..wanakum!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cheah, Buko in Penang different ah? hahaha.. some sell small buko-s, sea coconut also not bad, right.. anything else yang sedap dan special in Penang?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Aiya, why eat so little food only....lor bak, char kueh teow, hokkien mee, curry mee, tua pan.....all yummy.....should eat also lah...he he he, greedy me!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Pete, that day 3 of us only and small eaters too..but wait till this weekend.. my boys will order and order.. eat till we have to stop! hahaa...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Claire, let me know how much weight you gain over the weekend, he he he, naughty me!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pete: ok, in that case, i better weigh on friday and sunday... before and after... :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oops Reana wrong guy where food is concern. After I tell you my daughter's comment then you know the answer. Whenever there is any take away my daughter would just tapow 'curry mee' no need to ask. I am capable of eating curry mee for b/fast,lunch & dinner in a single day. Starting to miss my Penang curry mee already, Pete tolong where is the nearest Pg style curry mee in PJ?

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
