Penang Food Delights At Night


When I go for a "food trip", many times I wish that my metabolism level is at full gear... digesting food fast and leaving the stomach for more space for consumption. Unfortunately it is not like this anymore, at my age, I have to nibble here and there to taste varieties, no more large portions and eating like nobody's business.  I have to be careful with what I eat now, if I were to taste more, I have to cut down from full portion to half.... and half...

Here I was in Kimberley Street in the evening... wanting to try from different stalls this time...
I was there to taste the desserts in Restoran Kimberley with my kids last week...
But on Saturday we just passed it by.... 
I wanted to try different stalls...
 Walking along the street... must be careful with our bags...
Busy traffic during the day and night...
 This time I tried the mee sua lor...
Must put in some vinegar, it tastes better that way...
I would prefer the mee sua are not "broken" into small pieces like these..
 I took this instead... fried koay teow with duck eggs...
 RM6 per plate... not that cheap anymore but it tastes good!
 After our dinner, we drove to another area nearby....
Crowd was there... waiting for seats... 
Seems the Wan Ton Noodles here is very nice..
Too bad no seats were available....
 But all is not lost.... I saw Apom Stall....
 And bought RM3 for 5 pieces....
Crispy and Nice!
 Next we drove to the Free School Garden.....
Tried their curry noodles.... RM3.30
A bit sweet for me...
I prefer this as my second dinner for the night... hahahaa....
 and ended the night with a bowl of Variety Dessert!
That was my Friday night dinner... or should I say supper as well??
*suck tummy in*

  8. With young people you get to sample some of their food and don't have to order your own since you can't eat a lot at one go now. Was the duck egg ckt very different from the chicken egg ckt?
