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*


  1. Ahhh.... yes Chulia Street's Wanton Mee is one of the famous Wanton Mees here in Penang.

    1. Oh is it? I should have waited for empty seats then.... ok, next time I will try.. :)

  2. Nothing that tickles my fancy, I'm afraid. Wow!!! The apom so expensive. Hers look different, uses kuali...and rolled up like newspaper, not folded into semicircle. Will eat, not crazy about those.

    1. Oh, our apom over here is like that.. folded round... three times also got... half also got... all styles!

  3. Fried kway teow with duck egg looks good. People sitting at the roadside kah?Dangerous leh.

    1. Penang is like that....that is why so many people.. sooner or later no more road side stalls...

  4. I also can't eat a lot at one go, so need to eat a little bit of each and eat more of those that I like : )

    1. Yeah, maybe as we grow wiser, we need to eat like this.. hahaha...

  5. wah, i was actually drooling when i scrolled down looking at those food!! aiyoyo, so delicious lah.. somemore someone bringing you going here and there to try the best of the best!! so "siin mou"~~

    1. No need to sin moe.. can go anytime, SK!! hahaha..

  6. I would love that kind of 'food explore' too. But too bad I don't hv the time. You are so lucky to be able to try different kinds of food over there.

    1. Next time we can go together... after all the festive seasons..

  7. 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?

    1. er..if you asked me.. it tastes very much the same only that the colour of the yolk is different a bit.. .

  8. Replies
    1. Indeed... plenty more.. but no space.. hahaha..

  9. OMG!!!! You brought me back to Memory Lane! I have not been there for over 20 years since I left Penang.
    That Apom lady is still there! She used botok la or apom flour on her face! Still young & supple faced.

    You eat so much and stay so slim. Can you share your secrets? I suspect you also dig your throat la like Small Kucing! Muahahahaha

    1. TM, how come you never go back to Penang???? 20 years??? wow.. that is a long long time... what happened? You must make a trip back to see your old friend... hahahaa... Auntie Apom sure misses.. you...

  10. Wow, so many different and yummy in one night, hahaha!!!

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
