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.

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 here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
