My Delights In Penang Food Courts

MANY OF MY FRIENDS ASKED ME WHY I AM OFTEN IN PENANG...  Just a few reasons and one of the most reasonable and practical one is the Food!  I do not go to fancy restaurants in Penang, in fact I think I have not been to a high posh Chinese restaurant in Penang before, I am always frequenting the ones that I eat and eat again each time I go there.  Food that suit my taste buds despite having to sweat and "sniff" due to the hot weather and hot chillies!  hahahaa...

Now I am back home and as my food folder discloses all these pictures, all I have tasted before I came back.  Looking at these pictures, it is not surprising I will be back there again very soon.  Like Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous line in the Terminator says...... "I WILL BE BACK..."
Taken in Lye Lee @ Terrace Plus, Bayan Lepas
Clear soup Fish Mihoon
Small portion of Penang Lobak....
This was bought in Jelutong market... a Teochew snack, I was told... 
And the tasty Kuehkak stall around the vicinity in Jelutong...
Sizzling noodles at the Relau food court opposite Pisa Arena...
where I saw the ex-national badminton player named Choong Tak Fook...
Who remembers him?  He partnered Lee Wan Wah then...
My regret is not taking a picture together with him...  :)
I like their koayteow with mihoon...  no egg gravy so not so filling...
Freshly steamed Potato bun with brown sugar.... steaming hot and nice!
Steamed White tapioca... not so sweet... fine with me!
Well, what is this called?
I called it "woon chai koe" with grated coconut..... 
Then I had pan mee at a drive-in market in Yee Hong, Bayan Lepas...
And the Penang signature noodles... Koay Teow Th'ng....

And that is about all... 
Few days that is all we need... 
Our foodie trip came to an end... 
Till the next trip, I hope it will be very soon!!

  1. I would go for the hawker delights when in Penang - the ones in KL are not so nice anymore unless you know where to go as many of the stalls are manned by migrants and that makes a world of difference especially when the bosses are not even around to keep an eye on everything.

  4. Choong Tan Fook lah... hahaha! I remember him, he is a very versatile player, I remember he once played in the first doubles and then the third singles in one of the Thomas Cup because our singles player was injured. I think he was here for the Malaysian Masters...

    Eh those kuihs, cannot get in Ipoh meh?

    1. Yes, you are right.. many players were here for the Malaysian Masters, in fact I went there to ask about the entrance fee, it was around RM30 over and I changed my mind...

  5. I wanna eat that Clear soup Fish Mihoon. Where did you eat that? I like "woon chai koe" too. I am like that too - when in Penang, will not eat at expensive restaurants. I guess you will be going to Penang quite often since your girl is there now.

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...
