Brings Back Childhood Memories At Gou Lou Hong Kee, Penang

PACKED MY BIG BAGS AND ONTO NORTH.... again to Penang. 

Stayed in Penang for a couple of days before flying off for a 15 hours journey to my son's place in San Jose.  

Before I left, I stuffed myself with Penang food again, I went to the Air Itam food hub to try something new.  
The Lor Mee Penang style.... 
Some come with dark sticky gravy but I prefer this style....
I ordered the special with lots of toppings for RM11....
Taste not bad... can order again next time....
The Wok Hei Fried Koay Teow is a must here... RM7.50

Come evening, we explored Campbell Street not knowing what to eat, getting a parking space is a hassle.  To our delight, there was one empty lot just right in front of this shop which we had not tried the food there before.  So might as well..... 
We noticed the chairs were blocking the entrance...
So ... to go in or not to go....
While we were contemplating, one lady rushed out to open the door for us....
After we entered, she blocked the entrance again... 
Seems like the tables were all occupied... 
so I guess they did not want patrons to walk in to wait....  
When the food came, the portion was just the right size for me.... 
First bite.... wow... I was so happy!
The taste reminded me of my childhood yesteryears...
I thought I wouldn't get to taste like those times again anymore.... 
Ordered the Hor Fun mixed with Meehoon...RM8.50
I definitely will order this again the next time!
Another plate to share is the oyster mee.... RM9
Not too bad too but this one has no childhood memories taste ...
Cos in Ipoh then, oyster mee was unheard of..... 
Anyway, the food here must be good otherwise the door won't be blocked.. LOL... 
Then I also noticed that the staff are as senior as I am... 
So I guess the chef too must be senior too!
I better come here more often before the Chef goes on retirement....
Right?
