Penang

Penang

The island of good food up northern.

I remember hating Assam laksa back when I was younger, up until July last year that I started to eat it again. My tip is to always avoid the vegetables. They're weird-tasting 😅 other than that, all's good. This bowl of goodness can be found in Balik Pulau. This shop also sells Yong tau foo. Near the shop, there's also a stall selling muar chee.

Always here every time that I'm in Penang ever since I first discovered this three years ago. Paired with a cup of coconut shake, it's definitely a good combo. It could be quite spicy at times, but it's still good.

One of the things we had on our Penang food list when we went in January 2015 was mee sotong. My friend did all the research, and we ended up here at the Bangkok Lane.

As usual, mine was without the vegetables but damn, you need to be specific when they ask about the spiciness level. Mine was a tad bit spicier than I would have liked it to be, but it was still pretty tasty. I haven't been back here since then, but I wouldn't mind coming back.

*It is located on Bangkok Lane, but for some reasons, I couldn't find it on the location. Probably too far?

This was the plate of smoked salmon bagel ordered by my friend, but I didn't try it. It was polished off the plate without a single complain, so I assumed it was good enough. My friend usually complains if something is not right with the food, so that's good. Hey, more reason to check out the KL outlets! 😏

One of the things on standard cafe breakfast menu that I have always wanted to try would be baked eggs. I remember coming to Pie Harbour the first night before for dinner and telling my friends, "I've never tried baked eggs!"

Of course, my sweet, sweet friends came back to this cafe (it's located right below our hotel) the last day to have brunch, because we enjoyed the food, or I did. Of course I jumped at the opportunity to try out the baked eggs.

It didn't disappoint! I loved how when I poked the yolk, it was still runny, and I love that. Just as how I imagined it to be 😍 it was also served with four pieces of bread, which I used to dip into the bowl of goodness.

In all honesty, I totally forgot what was in the bowl of baked eggs other than the obvious eggs, but whatever that was in there, it was delicious. I was really sad when I had to leave Penang, mostly because of this, but glad to know they have a few outlets here in KL. Time to visit soon 😋

I do enjoy kuey teow generally. Still, if I were given a choice between the wet one or the dry (fried) one, I will almost always opt for the wet one.

This was my second time trying out Sany Char Kuey Teow, though it was at another outlet. As I don't like vegetables, bean sprouts especially, my plate was quite empty. It is still good, so that's okay. If I ever go to Penang again and craving for a plate of CKT, I would come back here.
