Delicious Food From Penang

While I was in the Free School Garden stalls, Terengganu Street, I could not resist ordering these... something I cannot get in IPOH, especially the grilled fish wrapped with aluminium foil. This stall is special, they cook everything in aluminium foil, chicken, sotong (squids), fish, vegetables and some other stuff which I cannot remember... (dare not take photos.. perhaps next time will ask permission first)

this "lala" sauce was very special..
I love the way they cook it..
cheap too, only RM5

ah...this is the fish I was talking about..
"bawal emas" (golden fish)
with the gravy, not so spicy too

just nice for me.. I cant take too "hot stuff"
the fish was with the ladies fingers on a banana leaf
to add to the aroma of the taste...
Cost :RM21.00

btw, this was my lunch (the next day)
Ah Leng's famous fried koay teow
