When all thoughts about street food or hawker center, a street food which one of my real favorite that located in the heart of the city that covers variety nice food and also one of the place that most people would not want to miss is one of the classic and famous street, New Lane. The street is packed with side by side hawker and even some of the stalls are repeated with their very own originality and depends on your taste bud. Every stall enjoys their own customer.

New Lane

This place was sardin packed with tourist on my last dining outing there. When I was back for Chinese New Year, I visited this place twice as I did miss some of my favourite stalls and most of the stalls here worth to be recommended.

New Lane (2)

Even people from the west came by here to do their food shooting.

New Lane (3)

One of the stalls which is very famous or a signature of the street is the ‘Chu Chap Chuk’ with all the pig spare part hanging in the stalls and one of hawker that start operate around 5pm then you can see a lot of old and young came by to ta pau back. RM4-RM6

New Lane (4)

If you do not like Pig Spare Part porridge, then you can op of ‘Duck Porridge’ which is very good too, with its well roast duck meat chopped and added in it with the aromatic duck sauce.

New Lane (5)

Fried Oyster in this area is pretty good too, with its big oyster added on after deep fried egg base.

New Lane (6)

There are 2 ‘Wantan Mee Noodle’ that I like the difference is the noodle used. This stall the noodle tend to be not so springy but it has its own style and I like their ‘Sui Kow’

New Lane (7)

This is one of the best ‘Tong Sui’ that you can even customade the ingredient that you want. One of their signature is also the ‘Almond Soup with Yau Char Kuai’ and I believe the other stall that they are operating at Lebuh Kimberly.

New Lane (8)

The tong sui soup base which is cook to perfect taste that suits me because its not too sweet.

New Lane (9)

If you are looking to taste the local taste of ‘Char Koey Teow’ this stall had always been frying nonstop even I prefer to take it myself is even faster than sit and wait.

New Lane (10)

Deep fried with wok hei and its very cheap too compare to Lorong Selamat and to me it taste much better than there.

New Lane (11)

New Lane (12)

I just love the ‘Curry Mee’ from this stall, with is clear santan soup and home made chili that stir in it makes it extra umph and chili aromatic that mix well in it.

New Lane (13)

Even though here had been my favorite but I this would be my first time to try on ‘Chee Cheong Fun’ here but of course my still all time favourite is the one at Genting Kopitiam at Island Glades.

New Lane (14)

It was steam well soft, yet the traditional method is with har kou (prawn paste) and add some chili is good, and some people do eat it with oil and sesame. Another version of it.

New Lane (15)

If you are craving for ‘Ikan Pangang Bakar’ . . .

New Lane (16)

this stall really serve a nice pangang fish but its just that overprice.

New Lane (17)

‘Beef Ball Soup’ in this kopitiam served very good lembu soup base.

New Lane (18)

Strong taste of the soup yet with the cow spare part is something I cannot resist. Dipping it with chili sauce is just taste fantastic and there are people who actually pour the whole chili sauce into the soup, stir and eat it. RM4-RM8

New Lane (19)

Another stall of ‘Char Koey Teow’ which is located inside the kopitiam is my dad’s favourite but I do not really like it. (again depends on your taste bud) RM4.50

New Lane (20)

New Lane (21)

This stall ‘Wan Tan Mee’ we prefer to order the soup base instead of the dry one, another one of my favorite stall. It depends on my mood to go for which 1, sometimes I prefer the road side and sometimes I prefer this. Both is equally good. RM3

New Lane (22)

New Lane (23)

New Lane (24)

For desert wise, there are two stalls located at the end of the street which is nearby Sunway Hotel. One is the ‘Apong Telur’ and ‘Kuih Ketayap’ which is 5 pieces(can mix) for RM2.

New Lane (25)

And last my FAVOURITE ‘Apom Manis Stall’ which I had been patronizing since when I was a kid till now. I find it this is the best so far and it is even better than Apom Guan (located in front of Union Primary) and the owner which is very funny. This stall was started by his dad and now the son had took over.

New Lane (26)

There are 2 type of base which is the normal one (classic flavor) and the one with Pandan (aromatic in flavor)

New Lane (27)

As I always love the one in ‘Jagung’ and ‘Banana’ is not bad too. I just love how he added on the extra flavour on the kuih base as when I bite it, I can still bite on the tiny coconut slices in it that makes it very aromatic. I always ended up having 5 peices even I am very full.

Heard alot about this street so I kidnap my bro to eat with me. Since has been a while didnt had dinner together. When I reach there, look as always busy hawker center area.

This is not my first visit here. Can consider couple of time already but it is the first time for my brother.

Been visit this for couple of times already and never seen this stall in a peaceful mode. As always there will be a que to hunt for chicken.(please think straight)

The pricing of the Fried Chicken.
What you can get from this stall!
Some of the spare part of chicken, below is the ‘Chicken Feet’ and upper part is the ‘Chicken Body’. I always wonder what do ppl buy the chicken body for? eat the crispy’ness?
No choice but have to buy 1 piece to put in my blog. Never a big fan of this stall as I never thought that it was very nice. The crispy’ness is there, yet quite salty all the time. The meat is nicely fried off as soft in the inside. To me I think it is overrated. RM3.50 for this.
Food rating 5.5/10 , Okay Lah~ -Stamped-
This stall also. ‘Char Koey Kak the uncle never stop goreng’ing. As always I go same like the chicken stall.Have to que but then it was fast. Just wait within 10 minutes.
Usually I like to eat with more tauge and also cut the koeh kak into smaller pieces. So that the taste can asorb it more.
This is what has came out. My bro complain not nice then I tried. So so only for today as not much taste. Quite pale. I think too many ppl that’s why QC abit out. Normally it is good.
RM 3.50 also
This I would say one of my favourite stall in the whole street. The Chuk is just so nice. You can mix and match yourself if you want. For me I usually take some spare part, century egg,chicken slice and duck egg.
The Chuk aka porridge is just so soft and boil into thickness. The taste is perfectly right for the whole bowl, of course for sick ppl, the best to get. My customade is RM5.50

For the first time I came to this area to eat then most of the stalls were close on that day. I remembered that this stall ‘Char Koey Teow was one of the nicest I ate so far and told my bro he must try.
Today, they had really make my bro and me dissapointed. It turns to be the worst of all. Too salty, no wok taste, the si ham also a few…can use finger point point point and count. Both of us only manage to finish half of it. Totally big difference from what I ate on the first time. NO QC eh….To me I never really like to order from this stall as it charged RM4.50 with no prawns. Which I rate it very expensive. In penang or some of the places in KL you will at least get 2 prawns.

Food rating 2/10 , DAMM BAD~ -Stamped-

The funny thing I always come to this stall as I don know how to read the chinese wordings and I always ask the auntie what she sells, then she tell me the whole list and I also still don know what is she talking about. Wanted to stare into the pot what she is selling but then failed cuz the pot is covered.

So this time the easiest for me 1 is I ordered ‘Mix’ every thing hantam in. So got quil egg, the rest of the ingredient don know what it is called in english but Hokkien I know..heee..(pai seh)

RM3 for this.
Food rating 6.5/10 , Okay lah~ -Stamped-
After all eating and 2 of us hantaming the food, so time to cool down our body heat with herbal tea. This stall full with ppl but I pity the auntie as she is the only person that do everything. Consider her one leg kick. Every time if I do pass by I would buy from her cuz pity her by her age. I bought 1 bottle of Herbal tea. RM3.50 for it.

When I was buying Herbal tea back my bro go ta pau Bak Chang’ back I did try before which is quite nice. At first my bro said that he wanted to get it as tomorrow breakfast. He bought the biggest one.

What had happen when reached home was he already open and start eating already. He said he still hungry. SIAU betul!!

One of the famous Tim Sum shop for breakfast in Penang. It has also been quite some time I did not visit this shop. Last visited was bout 5 years ago. As I have to bring my friend for breakfast, and decided to come back this shop as always mention by my dad how good it was as this shop is famous to all the nearby neighbourhood for quite long time already.


The shop is as usual packed with people from morning to night. As they have to different sessions. Morning will be the Tim Sum and Night will be the fried dish.

The troly being pulled infront of me, so get to choose what I want.

Ordered the Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fan’ whereby a must have dish for Tim Sum, it was so so only as the skin is too thick already. We only finish the prawns.

The ‘Wu Tau’ as one of my favourite. But today I think the yam, do not have the yam taste, feels abit weird but the ‘char siew pork’ in there taste nice. Not too salty yet perfectly juicy. Just the yam. Aiii

‘Fried Fu Chuk is one of the favourite, it is nicely fried as the crust of the skin is very crispy and the filling in it is very soft like home made fish ball. The mayonnaise we believe is home made too, as it taste sweet and goes along very well with the fu chuk.

Loh Mai Kai’ a common food for tim sum. Looks nice and oily, the chicken and the mushroom in it do not have much taste but the taste still lack of one taste, the original loh mai kai taste. Still feel that the 1 that I had in Genting is very nice and highly recommended tim.

This is one of their signature dish. Do not know what it is called but in the whole pau trolly this is the only odd colour looking, the auntie was selling hard on this. Decided to try it since she said its one of the best selling and the last piece.
I must agree with the auntie that this sure taste nice. The top is very soft like eating cake, and the filling inside is just nice, blend well with the top. Highly Recommended.
‘Char Siew Pau my favourite during tim sum. Very nice. The texture of the pau is nice and soft, the char siew inside is nicely fried along with the sauce.
I forgot what is this called already, by having me 1 person finishing the whole thing, taste quite good along with the cilisauce there, i think they have mixed it, chili sauce with the ‘tim cheong‘.
I personally do not like this but my friend she is having great time eating this. This depends on individual taste already.
Pai Kuat. So far still have not manage to find a nice 1 to eat during tim sum. Would not really recommend this as the meat is nicely steam but the sauce do not have a strong black bean sauce,the chili taste lack of it, and lack of salt.
Round up the whole session with a desert. As always my meal will usually end with desert. The ‘Longan Tau Fu Fa’. The pieces is very soft like taufu, the juice in there is not too sweet, and top up with longan. Just nice to complete the whole meal.
When I was paying the bill, I was quite shock again, as we ate so much and the total was only RM25. Aii, cheap loh~ With the food quality and the pricing so have not much comment on it. All the auntie there is very nice and warm.
They can just talk and talk to you and the auntie commented on my friend, ‘Wah, where r u guys from?Japan ah? then I laughed. Korea ah? you guys don look like local lei(in hokkein) you guys so fair. Then told the auntie, no la. We all ‘Pun Teh Lang’ (local ppl in hokkien)
