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.

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...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
