Food And Desserts At Chulia Street, Penang

We had a simple and yet famous Wanton noodles in Chulia Street for dinner.  Though I have been to Penang countless times, I have not tasted their popular noodles here before.  Firstly, the street is almost crowded each time I pass by and parking is so limited.  Must prepare to walk from a distance... anyway, good to exercise especially after a heavy meal! 
Feeling hungry?  Then must order a bit of everything!
But I was not feeling adventurous that night.... 
Ended up taking a plate of the "shoutabout" Wanton noodles...
Someone was telling me that it used to cost RM2 per plate...
Mana ada... it is now RM3.20 or around there....
Not much of a presentation....
But then, who cares... hahahaa....
Just look at the capital "L" standing for LARD!
No wonder so tasty!
After the much acclaimed noodles, I wanted to eat something soothing.....
We entered this herbal shop....
Herbal Jelly... "Kwai Lin Koe"
I could finish the whole packet here... 
Anything cooling, I am fine... 
And to add more desserts, I ordered this too...
Hokkien calls this "Kee Kueh?"
Please correct me if I am wrong...
Ipoh does a different version, we put in added shallots and a bit of oil...
But I prefer the Penang version.... 
Thick Gula Melaka sauce... I like!!

  7. No thank you to the lard. RM2 should be quite some time ago but RM3.2 is still a budget price. The Kee Kueh looks interesting, I have not seen it before - both penang and ipoh versions also I tak pernah dengar atau tengok.

    1. Tee Nya Kueh? Not Kee Kueh? hahahaa.. alright, thanks for pointing it out...

    2. I tink some of the Penang food are over-rated. The wonton noodles just look mediocre...perhaps we can easily get some better ones in Ipoh or KL. But I agree the duck meat kueh teow (from the morning market) is superb. I miss Penang rojak, assam laksa and char kueh teow......

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
