[repost from year 2011] – updated pictures with all broken links.

In this neighborhood, I always thought that the area only I know is on the Food Foundry area that side which only filled with food to hunt. . never did I know that actually there is another small kopitiam area located on another side of it which is quite famous for its lunch crowd among all my colleague and one of the shop that they introduce me which is Hong Seng Kopitiam which is famous for its BBQ Pork (Char Siew) and also their Chicken Rice..

Chicken Rice (1)

Left office around 12.30pm where was told to head there earlier to avoid the crazy queue. When I reach, the queue is already up to the next 2 shop lot.

Chicken Rice (2)

Chicken Rice (3)

Just a simple chicken rice stall like that which is only famous for its BBQ pork can attract many pork lovers out there. Roast pork hanging and the feel and look of it doesn’t attract me much, also decided to give it a try.

Chicken Rice (4)

Chicken Rice (5)

Then we order the Char Siew of 6 pax, that comes in whole big plate like this with a bit mix of Roast pork and chicken was not in the list cuz they said its not good. BBQ pork is good, with burn end is crisp, soft juicy meat that well coated with their own special sauce and I just cant stop eating it. Roast Pork did not impress me that much as I had better ones before, as here the head is not that crispy as I like and the meat is quite dry  even though the meat with fats are my type just doesn’t give me a kick in it.

Chicken Rice (7)

Ahhh, this sure impress all of us, sour and spicy soup, which is quite sour enough that boiled till a bit messy with the ingredients and just lack of not spicy enough. If it had add a bit more of dry chili then would be perfect but no complain as their version win a lot of places.

Chicken Rice (9)

Then I saw next table order some pig innards then I was wondering where to order that, its located behind section operate by a old uncle that sell s porridge and I order pig intestine which is good! Chewy, and flavorful from the soy sauce he is cooking. RM 8 for this portion which is pretty reasonable. . .

Chicken Rice (8)

Our whole lunch meal comes to a total of RM8 per pax after divided out with 6 pax.. which is a good value and satisfy . . I would say, just attack the BBQ pork here, do try out others too if you like . . Just be there early to avoid the heavy lunch crowd at 1pm.

Over the weekend, my best friend Ian was quite free then gave me a call ‘Woi, want to go have lunch? Go Batu Caves there makan’? I was like harr.. serious? Batu Caves? then he was like very good eh, will never introduce you wrong food, then I call Ken along too. Driving from my side to another side to hunt for this restaurant. Pan Heong Restaurant is one of a well know restaurant that attracts many from near and far. He also mention that why I should come here to makan is that they use Charcoal to cook! anything cook with charcoal always create another flavor out of it.

Pan Heong (1)

Pan Heong Restaurant is very well known to many locals especially their neighborhood area. With the quality of food and of course their very reasonable price had attracted people from all over then. It was Sunday morning and I was blow away on the numbers of customers queueing up for a table.

Pan Heong (2)

My other group of friends came earlier, therefore we got a spot pretty fast.

Pan Heong (3)

As when I dine in a new place, I always love to observe other tables on what they are ordering or what are the usual repeat order that they(diners) eat.

Pan Heong (4)

As my friend told me, they started off in under a tree and their business had grew so fast then they move to shop lot themselves.

Pan Heong (5)

Started off with a simple Vegetable @ RM 11

Pan Heong (6)

We did not order white rice therefore we go for their Fried Rice as I see many people order. It is a very simple dish that they fried it till very aromatic and ‘wok hei’ as I always love my fried rice to have chinese sausage. @ RM 15

Pan Heong (7)

This is one of their signature HOr Fun and supposedly to order their ‘Sang Har Mee’ but as majority would prefer this for this round. @ RM 15. I love the gravy texture, smooth with egg add up onto while it is serving very hot to let it cook itself while its hot. Smooth gravy and pair very well with the koey teow.

Pan Heong (8)

Next one of my favourite is their Kao Yoke Mee Hoon @ RM 17. Mee hoon was not fried too dry, moist as it originally suppose to be and eat along with the soft fatty Kao Yuk is just perfect. – Recommended!

Pan Heong (9)

Nam Yu (fermented bean curd) Pork is one of the dish not many places can cook well. I must say this place have done it well, that I nearly whack the whole plate by myself instead of sharing it with another 7 more pax. It is well marinated and deep fried to the edge is crispy, and the taste of fermented bean curd is there that do not over power the taste or too strong. – REcommended! @ RM 18.50

Pan Heong (10)

One of the dish that many table order is their Porridge. Then we opt for Fish Porridge @ RM 18. Silky smooth texture of porridge just like the one I had it in Hong Kong, sign’s of being boil long enough to come into this texture. Notice that the fish meat cook instantly under the super boiling hot porridge. Its a bit mild in taste yet just taste good~ Heee,, for sick people, it would be a good meal for you guys.

Overall, the food is not bad and the portion charge with the prices I would say its on the cheaper side as total bill came to RM 105 and dine with total 8 pax.

One of the coffee shop or kopitiam that I used to visit very often is Lee Huat Cafe that had been here that make its name to many Penang people on the good food for breakfast. The place open as early as 6am with 50% of the stall already start operating and the rest slowly starting off. By 7.30am most of the stall would have been operating.

Most of the stalls here are pretty well known for its good taste and quality. Of course there are a few ones that are more famous.

Lee Huat (1)

Well, it had been ages since I last visited this place which I think more than 10 years ago. So before heading our journey to Cameron Highlands my friends they all decided to stop by here for breakfast. Reach here about 6.30am

Lee Huat (2)

Well, of course Penangnites doesnt wake up that early as this is what we can expect the whole kopitiam to be pretty empty.

Lee Huat (3)

Many options are available and depends what kind of food you prefer in early morning. .

Lee Huat (4)

Still after all these  years, Curry Mee still one of the famous one that will be super busy as the sun is rising.

Lee Huat (5)

Lee Huat (6)

One of the items that not many places you can find this any more which is Oyster Porridge used to be very famous also as I am not too sure about now ..

Lee Huat (7)

The rest order Chicken Rice in such early morning. . Siau liau . . RM 4

Lee Huat (8)

Turns out to be pretty good though with the chicken meat is moist and aromatic and the skin is pretty good, not really a white rice as it had been cook along with a bit of chicken oil.

Lee Huat (9)

This is what I have for my breakfast, normal toast and half boil egg with a cup of hot Kopi . .

Lee Huat (10)

Loh Mee turns out to be good too with its gravy meant to be starchy and thick, add on with the sambal makes it more perfect.

Lee Huat (11)

I still love Penang version of Wantan Mee because comes with fried wanton along. Noodle is quite springy that makes it no comment and of course lots of char siew would be good. . .

I sure do not mind wake up early and come try other items in this Kopitiam again. . .Hmmm . . I think I should do it again . .:D, for travellers if you are looking for some hawker center to eat for breakfast, certainly here would be one of the place to recommend. 🙂

Parking is very limited around the area and happy hunting for parking space.

day 7 (2)

The hotel that we chose comes with a breakfast, and this is the Taiwanese style breakfast with porridge. It is seriously simple and good! I end up having 3 bowls of porridge with this ingredient. Mild in taste which makes it a perfect day to start off with.

From our hotel, it takes about 10 minutes walk to the cable car station which the cultural village is located the other side of the hill.

To hunt for nice food is always not easy, especially with home cook and traditional style, it was not until recently we discover a place that cook good Teow Chew and Hakka food which is located at SS14, a place which I went pretty often for the nasi lemak during my college days.

This restaurant is more than 20 years old which first the family run its business on southern Johore and until few years back one of the siblings decided to open one branch in the urban city area that run similar menu. Their signature dish to look for is more on soup and porridge.

Tien Kee

Tien Kee (2)

Newspaper had it all with their authentic style in taste.

Tien Kee (3)

Tien Kee (4)

The price in this restaurant I would say reasonable or cheap and the portion is huge.

Tien Kee (5)

‘Lobak (??) @RM6 (S) RM14 (M) RM20 (B)

Tien Kee (7)

‘Button-shaped yam balls – Abacus (?????)’ that I enjoy eating, its chewy and fried with ‘wok hei’ that end with a bit dry on taste. @RM8

Tien Kee (8)

‘Soon Kueh (????)’ stuff with dried shrimps, bamboo shoots, fungus, and minced meat. @RM2.20/piece’

Tien Kee (10)

‘Braised Pork with Black Fungus (???) @RM9′

Tien Kee (11)

If you love, one of the traditional dish, that has to add on vinegar to cook in it, strong taste of vinegar that boiled along with pork till it is soft and juicy. Just as the way I like it. ‘Black Vineger Trotter (???)’ @RM9 ‘

Tien Kee (12)

‘Stewed Pork with yam (????)‘ that the yam is steam till very soft and eat it along with a bowl of yam rice is perfect. RM13 ‘

Tien Kee (13)

‘Braised Duck Meat (?????)’ @RM9 is something that I enjoy that on that meal provided with a plate of white rice, I can just finish it.

Tien Kee (14)

‘Yam Rice (???)’ is aromatic with some dry shrimps yam chunks and its a bit dry as I like it where add on some sauce of the dish it just goes well. @RM1.20(S) RM2(B). ‘

Tien Kee (15)

‘Braised Duck Porridge (????) @RM8‘ that is my first encounter, as I do normally do take Duck Porridge when I was back in Penang but not here, taste pretty awesome, that is not salty, and the porridge cook just nice that the rice is not overcook, this is one of the signature item in Tien Kee. Give it a try.

Tien Kee (17)

I just love their homemade special ginger sauce. Specially marinated with some vinegar and it goes very well with porridge especially those who are sick or got flu. I took 2 souce plate of it.

Tien Kee (18)

If you are looking for something mild in taste, then you should go for ‘Pomfret Soup with Vege (????) @RM16. Sweet mild soup taste cook with vegetable and the fish is very fresh, soft and slices which had been cut perfectly for cooking purpose.

Tien Kee (19)

‘Pomfret Fish Mee Suah (?????) @RM16′ is another option you can go for.

Tien Kee (20)

If you wanted something spicy or sour ‘Sze Chuan Noodles (???) @RM8.50′ is one of the recommended choice as the taste had change to suit the local taste with added on some of their cooking style. Simple yet delicious~

*CLOSTING down SOON. . . .(will update their new location if known)- updated on 20.08.2010

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.
