Kimberley, Penang And Free School Road For "Foodie Loots"

I WANTED TO AVOID PENANG ROAD.. but somehow landed there again... Before Penang Road, I went to have a herbal fix at a shop along Kimberley Street, this shop sells cooling drinks, their "kwai leen koe" with honey was the best I have eaten so far. Sorry, I didn't manage to capture a picture because my throat was just too dry and all I thought of that time was to "chuck" the black herbal jelly into my mouth... hahahaa...

Since our park was parked along Kimberley Street, we took a short walk to Penang Road to take a "look" at the famous cendol... Just by looking, we ended up eating not only the cendol but a bowl of laksa as well... Actually I was thinking of going to another place for better laksa, someone put up in FB that there is one shop called Laksalicious along Hutton Road... oh well, that will have to wait...

Why did I come here for the laksa, especially during the weekend!
It is just "overwhelming"... I mean the crowd... 
When my bowl of laksa arrived, I told myself.. "Must try others next time!"
Cendol was better... 
Not from the long Q stall, it was from the one opposite....
More generous with the greenies here.... 

Well, that was not all... I didn't feel "satisfied" with the foodie loot as yet...
We adjourned Free School Road to take a look at this stall....
Seems like this is one popular stall among the locals too....
Family business, I think... 
Slowly does it....
"Building Bricks"
And the result... so neat!!
And My Loot!!
RM1.10 for a piece... no joke!
Ate them nice and slow... after half an hour.....

  1. wow, the cendol looks good.. and I always think Penang is a scorching hot place, so a bowl of cendol like this is surely welcomed..

    the fried nin koe, OMG, she trimmed every piece until so neat and all almost the same size!! hebat lah.. RM1.10 a piece?? still not the most expensive I've bought, hehe~~ :p

  5. Wah Penang makan makan again. Fried nien gao is one of my favourite. I like it that they arranged the nien gao and the sweet potatoes so neatly. When I think of the crowd, I also wanna pengsan so cannot go anytime because most of the time it will have that many people.

  6. Have you been to New World, the big hawker centre opposite Komtar? Our friend, Eugene took me there once...and I went a few times on my own. Never seen you blogging about it or not that I can remember. The cendol there is very nice and also quite a lot of the things there.

    Not a fan of that extra sweet sticky cake, so I would give that a pass...no, thank you. I love the steamed yam cake at New World, served with hay kor (rojak sauce)...and Penang otak-otak...and pasembur and...so many things there. Been years since I went to Penang - so dunno if this place is still good or not though.

    1. The New World is not opposite Komtar... far from it, actually... along Hutton Road.. yes, been there many times.. mainly for tourists like us.. :)

    2. Not all that far, we walked from Cititel up Penang Road, Komtar would be straight ahead...and we turned right, I think that was Jalan Burma. Tune Hotel is there.
      I like that place very much, was there here in 2009:

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
