Cucur Udang


One of our famous Penang Street food is also Mee Goreng. Of course there is this Famous Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng now have move to a new location right after 50 years of operating in the kopitiam at Bangkok Lane. I am more happy for them to move to this new location, New World Park foodcourt or known as New World Park Food City.

One main reason is of course Parking. Penang is very strict of parking. If you simple park, your car either got towed or got tayar lock. In this new location also you will be offer huge array of other Penang famous street food and my personal favourite stall are at the end of the post

Here is my pippin hot Mee Goreng Sotong at RM 6. Must definately squeeze lime on it to enhance the taste. Mine is extra spicy as I always love my CKT and Mee Goreng Extra spicy to give you the kick of it.

There are variety of Mee Goreng style in Penang. For Bangkok lane, theirs is on the dry side, yet you can taste abit of Wok Hei. The spiciness of sotong and chewiness of it just to my liking.  Complete this with nutmeg juice or ice kacang is just perfect.

By the way, the famous Ice Kacang in New World Park have move all the way to the front as an independent shop already. Same place just walk all the way to the front facing main road.

Usually to hunt for nice food, their location is always hidden some where which usually do not appear in google map. Another restaurant that turn out to be a hit among office worker in the area is this new Songket Restaurant which just started operation few months back. They are situated in a busy road of Jalan Yap Kwan Seng that is directly located behind Tony Romas.

One good thing about this restaurant is that they have alot of free parking around the area and once park its just few steps away.

By the term Songket is a fabric that belongs to the brocade family of textiles of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. It is hand-woven in silk or cotton, and intricately patterned with gold or silver threads. The metallic threads stand out against the background cloth to create a shimmering effect. In the weaving process the metallic threads are inserted in between the silk or cotton weft (latitudinal) threads. (source from wikipedia)

As this restaurant aim to assemble all the best traditional Malay food in most of the states available to be served under one roof.

Khadijah Ibrahim, Khadijah’s Kitchen sure do not ring a bell to me, after talked to her in person only realize that she is one of a famous singer in local and internationally arena with more than 31 years of experience that makes her as one of the leading singers of her generation, pioneer and innovator. From her popularity she had been named as a cultural ambassador for Malaysia and I believe you guys are very familiar with a song for Tourism Malaysia,  ‘Malaysia Truly Asia’.

Now besides being a singer, she loves to cook too, a food hunter and also a person whom is humble and willing to share and teach if you want to be a chef  and that creates out Khadijah’s Kitchen which is one of the hidden gem in Petaling Jaya area, thanks to Florence for introducing this place.

A simple and cozy place that offer more on homely ambience that she mention, most of the restaurant furniture are from her house. Her friends are quite shock when visited her house saying that, isn’t that is the same as your restaurant? As she spends most of her time in the restaurant, she had made it her second home that ensure it’s a place like home to provide for diners.

If you are looking for nice local Malay authentic food, there is no doubt that this would be one of the places to look for.
