Cecil Street Market, Penang 7th Road, Penang

It was a very hot day in Penang but that did not deter me from going to Cecil Street Wet Market also known as C.Y.Choy aka 7th Road Wet Market.  I have been there several times but I did not know the name of the place then.  Only when one of my friends who were traveling with us in the same car suggested this place, then only I realized that I have missed out lots of good food here....

This food court opens around noon, I was told and there was so much authentic food that I did not know what to take actually... but not to missed is this Duck Meat Koay Teow Thng!
 
It was crowded and a few were queuing up for "tar pau" back.....
I don't know why I love Koay Teow Th'ng ... 
Each time I go Penang, I must have a bowl or two or three....
My first meal in Penang....
I must come here again to try other food...
Ordered Otak Otak from the next stall...
Then I saw someone from the next table eating Roasted Pork...
The yearning came.... and I queued up to get some...
These reminded me of Mache in Singapore....
But this is Asian Pork Knuckles!
Thought of getting one home for my mom...
Stewed Knuckle with Salted Vegetables!
"BEST IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!
LOL....

  7. I love anything in clear soup. Did you like the otak otak? I quite enjoyed it. Many said not nice, the egg custard inside made them feel geli-geli.

    Aiyor...how can anyone compare that to Marche? Two different worlds. We've lots of stalls selling pork stuff like that at our pasar malam here (including the whole pig's head) - I usually will not buy when they sell things in the open like that, uncovered. Of course, they may not be all that clean in the shops...but as they say, what we don't see wouldn't hurt us. Hehehehehe!!!!

    1. Not very choosy on food so they are fine with me... not super nice but I still eat all the same... I like roasted pork, especially they are still warm and got crispy sound when the seller cut it...

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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
