Penang Food Part 1

A picture load of food pics from Penang and Kulim last week:)

Roti Babi from Gurney Drive's Song River

Mummy and Daddy said it's nice; just smaller in portion compared to other places in Penang. No comments from me (not a meat eater)

Famous Duck from Lunas

Pasembur or Cheh Hu(Raw fish in Hokkien) from Batu Lanchang new market (RM3.50)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
This is one of the more famous place for this dish:)

Popiah from Batu Lanchang market; the "wet" type of popiah soaked with gravy
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Costs about RM1.40 per piece

Otak otak from Song River (RM2)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Reasonably priced but too little fish in this. However, Mummy commented the taste of this otak otak was not bad.

Lobak from Song River

Not really good....in fact, it's not even authentic, the loh bak was only served with chilli sauce and no gravy (Loh).
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Weird! When daddy asked for Loh, the lady said, No gravy for this, it's only served with chilli sauce.
HUH?? Then why is it called Loh Bak?? Pirated version:S

Char Koay Teow from Song River (RM3)

On the average only; commented by Mummy

Stir-fried Kai Lan from Song River (RM6)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Good, tasty and crunchy:)

Jelutong area is also occupied with hawker stalls and crowd at night

Mung Bean dessert (Lek Tau Th'ng) (RM1.20)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

See Ko Th'ng (RM1.50)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Too dark yeah:p
It was not bad, lots of stuffs; only lacking of lotus seeds (my fave):p

Another interesting place is the Pulau Tikus market; which also turns into a hawker fare event from 6pm onwards.
Lok lok is pretty famous here; but this round we didn't have the mood for Lok Lok and instead tried others.

Leng Chee Kang (RM1.70)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
On the average only; but I liked the sea coconut in it:)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

Plain popiah from the Pulau Tikus market (RM1 per piece)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Just simple ol' popiah; with normal lettuce, mengkuang and tofu. No seafood whatsoever, that's why it's only priced at this price.
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

Fish Head Beehoon (RM3)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Not really nice; the fish were too soggy and coarse...:S
Really disappointed...
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

For nice variety and good price of hawker fare, the market in Cecil street is pretty famous as well (in the day)
Lam Mee (RM2.80)
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com
Daddy's favorite Lam Mee in Penang...it's his must-have
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

Nice drink on a hot day; Wheatgrass juice for RM1
Hosted by RockYouPhotos.com

Did I mention Penang was really hot recently?
In fact, I caught the sick virus from Penang....sighs:(
Anyway, it's starting to dampen a little with a bit of rain these days....
Stay tune for more Penang food posts....
