after that scone treat, its time for penang's famous dish at Jalan Siam. it seems that there's a coffee shop at the corner serving char kueh tiaw but in actual fact the stall is by the roadside opposite the shop
the uncle frying the char kueh tiaw using coal, traditional indeed, and gives extra points to this local delicacy
then its time for a cool off at Chatime at Bellisa Row, Pulau Tikus. i wish there's a branch in Limbang
a variety of bubble teas. Chatime is a chain cafe but there are many other cafes serving bubble teas around as well, even in Kuching and other towns here
Breakfast at the hawker stalls at Jalan Sungai Pinang
with duck mee sua that's cooked with herbs (reminds me of our Foochow version, except that ours is with red wine), loh bak tauhu mix and curry mee
managed tom meet up with bestie pei lian! we both looked very happy in cream and yellow tops
spotted the construction of the 2nd Penang bridge from far
Lunch at Koi Japanese restaurant at Gurney Plaza
prawn tempura, seafood platter, unagi, octopus balls
fresh sashimi, soft shell crab, cold udon, octopus and squid
then Dinner is at East Hokkaido, not very far from Gurney Plaza
assorted starters.. there's deep fried lychee filled with mayonnaise.. interesting..
baked prawns, chicken, vegetable and 'World's Best Fried Rice' (that's what its called there) its delicious coz there's crunchy little bits in the fried rice
looks like tilapia.. and more and more seafood of crab and squid and clams..
another round of dessert at Blackball, famous for the 'Jiu Fen' Yam Ball which i eaten before in Taiwan!this place is also at Pulau Tikus, seems to have loads of dessert places here including Haagan Daaz as well
bubble tea and our own combo of stuff. u can create your own and i wasn't up for yam so we threw in 5 random stuff like pudding, jelly and ice cream.. lol
Breakfast at with instant cook sai tou fish ball koay tiaw t'ng at Sungai Nibong.. not bad unless you don't like mince. the kueh tiaw here is thinner compared to ours, perhaps our broader version is their ho fan. after that we went to Perak, which i will share more in my next post
and that night we had ice cream waffles at Baskin Robbins, the same dessert area in Pulau Tikus. the first time i have this ice cream since i got back. there's always one thing that confuses me here in Penang.. why isn't Pulau Tikus an Island? hmmm
anyway, next stop, Ipoh, Perak!
