Pain In The Ass

Browsing

Weather in Penang is crazy hot, as over the weekend I was there for a few functions and of course bringing the KL bloggers along following by my favourite shop especially for their Coconut Shake and Jelly. This shop might not well know to many people yet as mostly alot regular that come back for their drinks or through word of mouth. Good news is that I do not have to go all the way to Melacca for that famous Klebang Coconut Shake as now in Penang also offer something similar and I find it better.

One of their signature is their Coconut Jelly is whereby they started and at times I do make a take away in KL Central. Yap, they do have a small kiosk outlet in KL Central depature hall that sell their signature coconut jelly.

Back in Penang of course I often go for their 3 combo, young coconut drink, coconut shake and coconut Jelly which I rarely miss out.

 Coconut Shake @ RM 3.80 comes with a scoop of ice cream.

Indeed its very freshing under the crazy hot weather, not too milky nor too sweet that comes to my liking, yet a well balance taste of both coconut flavour and milk that did not over power it.

A Recommended place for drinks or another favourite place of mine is Ice – Tingkap – traditional Indian Drink. Set back of this place is parking is a pain in the ass. If you are stopping by at the main road you are obstructing the whole traffic area. Usually I park opposite next to kaki kaki and walk over.

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.

Sua Tau Keh

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.

Sua Tau Keh (2)

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.

Sua Tau Keh (3)

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

Sua Tau Keh (4)

Next a stall which I would not miss is the ‘Tong Sui Stall’. Cost RM1-RM3.50

Sua Tau Keh (5)

‘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.

Sua Tau Keh (6)

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.

Sua Tau Keh (7)

‘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.

Sua Tau Keh (8)

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.

Sua Tau Keh (9)

‘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

Sua Tau Keh (19)

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.

Sua Tau Keh (10)

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.

Sua Tau Keh (11)

can add on this part if you like.

Sua Tau Keh (12)

This are all the ingrediants that going to add into the bowl.

Sua Tau Keh (13)

Here comes my very ‘Kuih Chap’ with all the duck spare part.

Sua Tau Keh (14)

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

Sua Tau Keh (15)

Another stall that I discover which is the ‘Belacan Fried Chicken’ which walk a bit further down from that 3 stalls.

Sua Tau Keh (16)

Sua Tau Keh (17)

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.

Sua Tau Keh (18)

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~

Chinese New Year is just around the corner. Every Chinese is busy replanish stock for other family members and friends to visit them. Traffic and parking is a pain in the ass but another thing that draws alot of people to the mall is to take picture of the deco. The deco in most of the malls now are really putting alot of efford and investment in it. Its very impressive as part of the crowd drawing. Did not went to alot of malls but just went to the very main few ones.

CNY Deco'10

The decoration of 1-Utama is the ‘Fatt Choy Mau’ Prosperity Cat.. When it was setting up, I always keep wonder will the hand move like what most restaurant display.

Fish Head Bee Hoon seems like a hit at the moment as this would be the 2nd discovering of the restaurant but I have return to this kafe a few times already.

I love their version of ‘Fish Head Noodle’ as I felt that this shop had stronger taste that I quite prefer compare to other shops. A strong rice wine taste which doesn’t over power the Xo sauce and the milk taste yet sweet taste of the soup that add in the fried fish head is just nice~ RM7.50

As their ‘Fried Hor Fun’ looks good but taste average. It’s a bit starchy that makes the sauce quite thick and cannot really taste the ingredient that fried along with it. RM8.90

‘Claypot Noodle’ is quite pale in taste but added in some soy sauce and some chili given, it tasted not bad. RM7.90

With their pricing and the quality and I like their version of Fish Head but parking space could be a pain in the ass. Can double park around the shop.

Sometimes I do wonder that how did Jonathan manage to find all the details of eat all you can meal and this round he suggest us to come to this place which he had been mentioning for quite some time. I did ignore him a few times as that time I was quite phobia of tim sum, eat too often in such a short time. It was Friday, so at least we can have something nice. RM28++ per pax.

When we walking, I had that kind of impression that, hrmm..another classic chinese deco style restaurant?

In a 5 star hotel area located at Seri Kembangan do expect to much but did impress a little.

With the menu and tick on the selection of food you want.

Fragrance tea that suits my licking that create a thin sticky layer on my tongue.

The soups were good. We order 4 types of it. Then when we order for 2nd round, the taste difference is quite huge as the restaurant was kinda full house and lack of manpower.

We like this very much, it was fried with wok hei and we order 3 rounds of this.
Very plain loh mai kai.

‘Durian Pudding’ is something plain on the top but when you deep deepper on it, you will find the jewel of the pudding which 1/3 of durian purree at the bottom. We like the ‘Mango Pudding’ more. The ‘Sweet Red Bean with Lotus Seed’ is good too, with quite thick in flavour yet I enjoy it very much.
‘Chilled Herbal Jelly’ is the most bitter jelly that I have come over so far. Even though I like herbal jelly quite bitter but this bitter is extreme but some of my friends they do like it.
‘Red Bean Pancake’ is kinda cold. If it was serve warm directly after fried.
This would be a short post with pictures illistration mostly, but what I would say, with the amount that I am paying, I would go for other shop instead of this one. The food is not bad but the service is pain in the ass with lack of man power for Friday lunch yet alot of Bangla working and the walk like turtle. So do not expect good service.

Most of the time when I am back to Penang, I would always try to dine in this place or my friend would eventually suggest this place also. This western food stall is quite well known to alot of people in Penang for its price, serving and the quality but it is always a pain in the ass as have to wait quite long.

This is the point where you order your choice.

With the price list and variety available, it sure wont disappoint you.

I do not know why, most of the time I would order this ‘Mushroom Soup’ which had a style of its own, taste a bit like Campbell soup but with their own recipe, a bit thick in flavour yet a very small pieces of mushroom chunks in it and also button mushroom slices. RM3 (if not mistaken)
‘Chicken Chop’ which happens to be one of our favourite in our ordering since from high school till now. A very plain style but the best thing was the gravy that shower on it. Well fried with crispy on the outer layer yet the chicken taste soft in the inside. RM6.50

‘Chicken Maryland’ not my type of order which comes out to be everything very dry, but my friend do like it very much. RM8

My usual order ‘Mixed Grill’ RM15 which had a price increase already but still with the amount of meat I got no complain, as it comes with lamb, pork, beef, bacon, egg and sausages. One plate is enough to kill me. My order of this as I always request for the ‘Chicken Chop Gravy’ which goes along with it perfectly.

Advisable to go there early or after 11 to avoid long wait. If you are very hungry, I would not advise to go there also. The usual wait if you are lucky 20 mins is the fastest. One of my favourite place to look for western food, which I still think the price is quite cheap. This place is very easily spotted as its just right on the roadside. Recommended~
