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...

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
