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.

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...
