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.

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!

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...
