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.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
