My girl requested for a short holiday during her two weeks semester break. She has just finished her exams and it would be nice to go for a weekend getaway to somewhere near. Just a two hours drive from Ipoh to Penang and we started our journey around 10am and reaching Penang island around 2pm...
Penang Bridge taken by my girl while I was driving....
Beautiful sight to behold...
Didn't realize dark clouds were looming above us... till now....
We went for our lunch straightaway....
The Laksa along Gottlieb Road...
Name of the coffeeshop is Taman Emas....
My laksa without the shrimp paste....
Some side orders which was quickly doubled in no time...
Ordered another plate of Fried Koay Teow... for sharing!
Well, this was just the first round...
After checking into the hotel, we drove out again to Chulia Street.....
For this Pillow Dumpling! RM3.50
I like the filling... full of yellow beans!
Then I saw someone eating this at the next table....
I couldn't resist... and I ordered one plate to be shared among three of us....
And "drowned" with a bowl of their Famous Red Bean dessert....
PHEWW...... Full liow!!
and we went forth to visit Penang Time Tunnel.....
Laksa no shrimp paste, where got the same leh? Penang, everything shrimp paste - even their chee cheong fan, fried yam cake...all so nice! Yum! Yum! Ooooo...so long have not eaten Penang char kway teow liao! The ones here not the same, not so nice. :(ReplyDelete
I think it has been quite a number of years since you have last visited Penang, right? I still remember our Karaoke session with Eugene and co. and since then, we didn't get together any more..Delete
Wow, so enjoy. Penang laksa without shrimp paste, how's the taste? Pillow dumpling rice looks too soft (lembik) but I like the red bean dessert.ReplyDelete
I don't like my laksa to be so sweet... so I skipped the paste.. I prefer it to be sourish... yes, the dumpling looks lembik but it is not cos of fullness of beans...Delete
10am to 2pm is 4 hours leh. Got any detour for more food halfway? :DReplyDelete
hehehe.. now you said it, yes... we did go somewhere to pick up something on the way.. you are very observant, Realgunners!!Delete
Nice drive and outing with your girl.ReplyDelete
Yes.. we like to travel together.. :)Delete
Bo kam... :)Delete
If me, i also cannot resist, hehe...ReplyDelete
hehehe.. this I know you won't....Delete
I like this assam laksa Taman Emas, small bowl just nice for small eaters like us, hehehe. I like the dumpling too - if soft, I like it even better. Where did you get it at Chulia Street? I thought only you and your daughter went to Penang, who is the 3rd mystery person?ReplyDelete
Oh, the third person is my nephew! Just call him and he'll say YES! :)Delete
Wah laksa!! And char kuey teow! I want!ReplyDelete
Only one hour... GO! hahaha..Delete
The first two pictures of the bridge look like the masts of giant ships! What is the fancy looking seashell things in picture five?ReplyDelete
Oh, those are steamed dumplings.. the fillings inside is chives.. if I'm not mistaken.. :)Delete
Wah hou sik tarn sai kai, requested for short trip.. Nice I like too.. Yummy food again.. I love char kuey teow (mein)...ReplyDelete
At my age, I try to travel a bit here and there.. more of a relaxing trip..Delete
I also doesn't like my laksa with shrimp paste, love that spicy sour kick, if added shrimp paste like no more of that..ReplyDelete
wah wah wah.. first round only so much of makan.. the laksa looks good, the CKT looks good, the yin yong looks good, and oh, that tong sui too!!!
Ok OK.. all good!! hahahaa... Gained a lot of calories too like that.. hahaha..Delete
I must have shrimp paste with my asam laksa but my partner had banned it hah..hah... He said it is not good for health lah. Anyway, love all the food you ordered!ReplyDelete
I dont like the sweetness after putting the paste.. not good for health? Laksa itself also not good for health hahaha...Delete
I know that laksa place! Very nice, had it when I was last there too. :)ReplyDelete
BTW, why did you order without the shrimp paste? Do you have allergies to shellfish or you just don't like it?
I dont like the taste after putting.. too sweet... I prefer the sourish taste..Delete
wah....Penang again ah?ReplyDelete
So near ma...Delete
Nice! Jalan-jalan and makan-makan with daughter. :)ReplyDelete
Both also like to eat...Delete
wow...food tour again...the laksa looks great! and the char kuey teow so tempting...ReplyDelete
