3 days off! (3)

After the pit stop in Ipoh, we're off to Penang!

Once arrived in Penang, we checked in to our hotel. 
After checking in and unpacking our bags, we're off to the streets of Penang. First stop, Pulau Tikus!

This stall is located in front of;
Kedai Kopi Swee Hong
(corner lot)

This uncle have been selling Apam Balik for years..

He still uses charcoal to cook Apam Balik! OMG (Y)

RM0.90 each!

Next, we went to Lorong Selamat. Some people said that in Lorong Selamat, the char kuey teow have big prawns in it! I must have a look :)

Kafe Heng Huat
RM7.50 per plate.

  • It's quite spicy. I think it's not children friendly.
  • Prawns are big
  • Small portion :(
  • Uses charcoal
  • Expensive
It's not that special either, just that the prawns are big. In fact, I heard that this place is a tourism place, that's why the price is marked up. Quite disappointed :/

Next we when to next door to try out more food. Dad ordered kuey teow theng which is kuey teow soup.

Kedai Kopi Eng Hoo
RM3.50 per bowl

  • The soup is very unique! It has a special taste to the soup (Y)
  • The kuey teow is smooth.
  • Best compliments to the soup :)

Apple enjoyed the food expedition too! :D
That's all for today, stay tune!
