Durian Ice Kacang And Laksa In Kek Seng Coffeeshop, Penang

BACK TO PENANG after a weekend getaway to Hatyai. It was quite tiring since the journey took around four hours to reach the island and the next day, we decided to take things easy.  After a late wake-up call, we had something light from the market opposite our place.  I really must rest my stomach before indulging into something "hot" again... I thought I would be able to refrain from any spicy soup after the Hatyai trip... Alas, it was not so.....

Temptation seeped in again when someone mentioned that this coffeeshop served the Best Laksa and Ice Kacang in Penang town!  Really or not.... ???  Well.......  let's go!!
It was a weekday and lunch time was over... 
The place looked kind of quiet and "homely-like".... 
Don't judge the "environment" by its cover.... 
Alright, what is good here?
Kek Seng Home Made Durian Ice Cream???? 
Oh my... Must TRY!!

But first... a bowl of laksa to start off.... 
No exeggeration... This laksa is perfect for me!
Not so spicy.... and the sourish taste was "ngam ngam hor!"
And now... presenting...
Durian Ice Kacang!!
Just look at the Ice Cream... homemade from Durians.....
Just look at the ingredients from this angle..... 
Plus this angle as well...... 
Alright... enough pictures... 
The ice cream is melting by the seconds!
Of course, one must attack the ice cream first... 
Eat them slow.... hmmmmm......
And within minutes....  all that's left.... 
This is what I called Food Satisfaction!
Another banner displayed on the wall... 
Next time I would try the Fruit Jelly... plus the Ice Cream of course!
It seems the durian ice cream is for sale too... 
One tub in a plastic container cost RM15 if I did not overhear wrongly while I was eating...
Besides Laksa, this shop is also famous for their Hainan Chicken Rice...
Well, Kek Seng coffeeshop will not see the last of Reanaclaire yet....
"I'll Be Back!"

  6. I'm drooling just looking at your pics. Although this used to be THE coffee shop back in the heydays of the 60s (according to my mum), I've never set food here. Got to give it a try now that I've seen your pics.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
