Penang Delights At Carnarvon, Burmah Road And Pulau Tikus

EACH MORNING IN PENANG, I ALWAYS WAKE UP THINKING of having a hot bowl of Koay Teow Th'ng!  The name is the same for every stall which sells KTT but the servings and ingredients may differ from one another.

Since we woke up late that morning, we went to the stall off Carnarvon Street, hoping the noodles were not sold out yet.  To our relief, they were still selling and one table unoccupied.  Quickly we made our order and in no time, our food were served.

The portion is very small... and I finished it fast and good... 
A small plate of greens... though I preferred them not to be splashed with oyster sauce... 
For two bowls and this plate of vege, it cost RM12...
Feeling not "full"... we adjourned to another place for "back-up".... 
Came across a mobile van selling Bah Chang at Burmah Road....
I was told this one is related to the shop along Cintra Street selling Bah Chang too... 
Even though it is along the street, tables and chairs are available on the pavement...
I like this style... too bad, Ipoh does not have this type of arrangement anymore.... 
Clean and tidy... 
Yes, they sell the same Yam Cake too as the shop too...
But just unfortunate that I was too late... 
The Bah Chang I wanted to eat was sold out...
The one with lots of yellow beans and less sticky rice were not available...
 Ended up taking this Bah Chang without beans....
And drowned with a bowl of red beans and black eye peas... 
After our double breakfast, we proceeded to the Pulau Tikus market.... 
And I couldn't help not buying a packet of this Nyonya dessert!

So... slowly, slowly.. as days go by,  as I do my posting.... 
I will get to know the cause of my changed figure... 
hmmmmm......

  3. I like the portion of food served in Penang, small enough for me so that I do not need to waste food by leaving any behind. I have eaten the bak chang at Lebuh Cintra. Nice!

  5. You sure have a big tummy to eat so much!! Lol.

    I love kway teow th'ng. Reminded me so much of Thailand where you told them noodle, they always end up werve you kway teow. To us, noodle means mee. The small noodle. To them, noodle is jway teow. Lol. I guess so since Penang and Thailand is so near, they have some similiarities.

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...
