We Were At Carnarvon And Kimberley Street, Penang

The next morning we went to Carnarvon Street, wanting to buy those fresh oven-baked mini egg tarts... but since they were not ready yet, we walked along Kimberley Street to try the famous road side koay teow th'ng, not only they were nice, they were a bit overpriced too... I was startled... 
Andy with his appetizer.... 
two crispy fresh "cheen dul"
or should I say Sesame Balls?
they cost 80sen each... worth every bite...
then came the food... stewed chicken drumstick...
some dumplings.. "wan ton"
small plate of greens...
three bowls of koay teow th'ng
can you guess how much this cost?
I was pretty cool at first... ahemmm..
and when I heard that the price was RM29.00 for these, 
I was like "huh?" So expensive?
I thought I heard wrong.. cos I am no good in hokkien..
But it was really RM29...
A bit overpriced but then... 
they tasted good.. so..
I guess I shouldn't complain...

Happy Mother's Day!

Kuay Teow Th’ng

  12. Wow, so expensive, cut throat, daylight robbery. Food looks biasa saje. Nothing special.

  13. Please don't come to Penang so often,otherwise our hawker prices go up up and away lah,, hahahah just joking, anyway,seriously speaking Penang can no longer boast it self as good and cheap hawker haven anymore,, sigh

    but no worries as for me,I can still sniff the good and cheap ones

  14. I would say the food looks good.but bit pricey...however if taste good,then worthy la.
