I have been reading a lot of status this morning, yeah, I know its hard to drag our ass to work since most of the people start to work today yet with very heavy Chinese New Year Mood and bombard with tons of work after a few days off, its kinda pain in the ass. Since now I am at Penang, let me start off with Penang Street Food first. Lebuh Kimberly hawker center had always been my all time favorite area to eat which I had been long time did not visit this place. Its a very cheap place to eat in.
It is usually pack with local crowds after 7.30pm. It is advisable to go early or if you would want to enjoy the local feel with standing and waiting for tables and manning your area then anytime would be good. Most of the hawkers here had been operating for more than 10 years already and its had been a signature area.
Let’s start off with the street famous Char Koey Teow. In this stall, its famous that you can add on additional item, such as Mantis Prawn, Chinese Sausage, Duck egg or prawns. It is best that they uses charcoal to fried, the taste would be different.
This is my plate of ‘Char Koey Teow add with Duck Egg and Mantis Prawn’. Perfectly fried, dried and a bit sticky yet with wok hei and duck egg build in different aroma in it, is something which I expect. RM5
Next a stall which I would not miss is the ‘Tong Sui Stall’. Cost RM1-RM3.50
‘Almond Soup Tong Sui’ is the signature of this stall. Not many people enjoy the taste of it but I have learn the fair taste, very thick in almond taste, not very watery yet add on with the yau char kuih, I can just still imagine the taste of it. Good for health as what I have been told by my grandmother when I was young.
Next is the ‘Cham’ I always had too. Clear tasty non very sweet tong sui base that goes along very well after eating of so many street food.
‘Red Bean Soup’ that had been boild to build up the aroma yet the bean is not soft and a bit solid as that is how the preserve the tasty’ness of it.
Heading to next stall is the ‘Koay Teow Soup’, again as not only they sell only the noodle yet you can add on additional dish with their famous signature ‘Cham’ (consist of egg, chicken feet, pig intestine and taufu) or if you do not like som eof the item, you can just order randomly.
‘Dry Koey Teow’ taste quite good, not very salty as expected yet the koey teow is silky smooth yet a bit oily make it taste good. RM3
One of my favorite ‘Pig Intestine’, been boil and steam very very soft, yet very juicy when bite it as the watery home cook soup soy base had made it very aromatic.
Another stall which is very famous with local folks is this stall that you must not miss. ‘Kuih Chap’ that serve with homemade kuih style as noodle base yet add in all the Duck spare part in it. Besides their famous signature, they also do serve porridge which is a top notch too.
can add on this part if you like.
This are all the ingrediants that going to add into the bowl.
Here comes my very ‘Kuih Chap’ with all the duck spare part.
With the home made kuih that replace noodle which is a must for ‘Kuih Chap’. I just miss this alot, very aromatic soup base that filled with duck and salty taste yet the meat of the duck is very soft, and my mouth watering meal. 1 bowl is enough to kill me off. Small RM5
Another stall that I discover which is the ‘Belacan Fried Chicken’ which walk a bit further down from that 3 stalls.
Deep fried as very crispy on the edge, yet the chicken meat is very filled with belacan taste as I buy it hot from the wok.
One of the thing I fell in love with this stall is the ‘Deep Fried Salted Fish Taufu’. Although its not similiar like ‘Chou Taufu’ but it something I love. Deep fried till the outer layer is solid yet when you bite on it, you can taste the softness of the taufu yet salted fish aroma is there and dip with the chili sauce given, is something I could not ask for. RM 2-RM 3 sell in 10 pieces.
This is one of my favorite Penang Street Food area. Recommended~
