Started the journey up north this time around noon and at the last minute, we decided to have our lunch in Nibong Tebal instead of Penang Island. We reached there around 1pm... just in time to join in the crowd for lunch.....
From the toll we turned left to Nibong Tebal....
It has been few years ago since I last visited Nibong Tebal...
This bridge was not reconstructed yet as far as I can remember....
So I quickly take a picture of it....
And very near now... Looks like a roller coaster....
After some turnings here and there, we managed to locate this landmark.....
Maybank.... and the shop we were looking for was just behind....
Famous for their seafood and pork knuckles!
There was a crowd there already....
Lunch time.... very right "timing" for us...
And eventually we waited around half an hour for the food to arrive...
Ordered a Hokkien char koay teow with mihun mixed..
Fresh giant clams... Lala.....
Sambal Kangkung.... a bit too oily but very tasty....
And this is Siakap in Thai Sauce...
Reminded me of Assam Fish my mom used to make....
And the total cost came to RM52....
The price seems very ok. Food looks ok too. I have not seen the 2nd bridge. Thanks for showing the photos.ReplyDelete
That one not 2nd bridge hahahaDelete
Will show the second bridge in my next post.. this one is in Nibong Tebal... :)Delete
Food looks very hoi wai.. You guys need to eat a lot of rice with these dishes.. Sambal kangkung and fish with Thai sauce, good with rice.. Nom nom nom..ReplyDelete
Yes, ordered a small rice to go with these dishes only.. too full to wallop more..Delete
That Swee Garden place needs a new coat of paint. That Hokkien char kway teow - is it tomato sauce gravy? Looks like Kuching's tomato kway teow.ReplyDelete
No, not tomato gravy.. don't like tomato gravy... too sweet...Delete
Went exploring ya. I love that fish. Not much bones . Easy to eatReplyDelete

hahahaa... This place far from Ipoh...Delete
Hokkien char kway teow? Got such thing one meh? Isn't that mean just char kuay teow?ReplyDelete
This one looks like wat tan hor, if I am not mistaken they call it char hor fun in Penang, hmm..
No, not wat tan cos no egg... char hor fun is dry version? Not sure.. but got gravy without eggs...Delete
Eh, that is Hokkien Char Koay Tewo kah? Look like Cantonese style, the wat tan hor. Whatever style, I will wallop!ReplyDelete
hahha.. I also not sure actually... cantonese or whatever...Delete
wah ....food looks good, not bad. It's also been super long I never been to Nibong tebal.ReplyDelete
Yeah, you better make a trip there.. hahahaDelete
Price not bad le? Swee Garden - pretty garden (Hokkien), easy to remember. Will look out for this place on my next trip to Penang. Thanks Claire for sharing this place.ReplyDelete
Yes, do look out and let me know when you have tried...Delete
never been those place before.. i hope somedayReplyDelete
Hope you do.. :)Delete
i tink i can finish the whole plate of kangkung, despite the thick layer of oil (looks like they overpoured the oil). The fish looks appetizing too!ReplyDelete
Yeah looks quite oily hor...Delete
I have never been to Nibong Tebal, just pass by the sign everytime I go Penang, hehe!ReplyDelete
Their food looks yummy!
Yes, next time you should go and try it out...Delete
Huh? you went all the way there without having pork knuckle ???ReplyDelete
No...cos not enough people.. :pDelete
Years ago I often went there to eat the best pork knuckles in the country! So crispy and yummy.ReplyDelete
This sleepy and dark town is now growing fast! I feel so old now.
Yes, I think they still have that... famous for that dish...Delete
Any idea Swee Garden close on which day of the week? Thanks in advance.ReplyDelete
Sorry, I didn't ask them...Delete
