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

  2. For sure I am going for that bowl of cendol & fried kuih bakul. The white thing with the kuih bakul is yam, rite?

  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.

    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:
