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......

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...
