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.

Back in college days, there is one little place that we used to hang out when craving for desert, before they move to a proper building which is this Crepe Cottage that located along side in Gurney Drive, well,  the current landmark to look for is this little shop is located next to Coffee Island or Overtime at Gurney Drive.

Crepe (1)

This humble little shop have very limited in place is run by a family and they have been operating for more than 10 years if I am not mistaken. Their shop is very limited in space, therefore always you have to wait as their service is pretty slow. On average for serving is about 20minutes and waiting time can stretch till 1 hour. So if you do not have patient then you can forget about this place.

Crepe (3)

There are quite alot of choices of Crepes to choose from in the menu with front and back . . .

Crepe (4)

Besides that, they do sell fusion food ranging from western, Italian and some locals cuisine.

Crepe (5)

Nutela @ RM 11

Crepe (6)

So we ordered 2 different crepes starting off with this one in wraps style. Wrap with banana slices, top with whipped cream, shower with chocolate rice on top and chocolate syrup and a scoop of Choco ice cream turns out to be the winner compare to another one, as banana is so fresh n soft, love the strong taste of it and pairs very well with nutela chocolate. The wrap is very aromatic and just eat along with full combination is savory.

Crepe (8)

 Sunburst @ RM 10

Is another version of pancake desert is more like so round slice like MacD breakfast pancake but of course its much better than MacD alot of times. This comes with slices of mango, peanut and top with Mango Ice cream. We just love the base of the pancake . Still think Nutella is better.

Well, not many places offer very nice pancake desert and this is certainly one of the places to look for, prices might be a bit expensive as I still think worth spending for once a while .. for their food I have not try before yet. One of the recommended place by me if you are craving for crepes in Penang.

If you do find other better places please do let me know, I love to go find out on it .. 😉

During festive seasons like for the past few days, many local tourist will flock to Penang shore as Penang is famous for hawker/street food. It can attract tourist as far as Singaporean to drive all the way to satisfy their crave on food and some of the Best of Penang Street Food is still top in the list of many people.

Next destination is this place where no doubt that recently Penang Laksa had been in the list of world top 10 food that must eat which I am surely proud off and many of my friends that come Penang the first thing they mention is they want to eat Asam Laksa.

NED_6507_resize

I was recently introduce to this stall by my friend that this is another new joint that I found that served good laksa as I find that the one at Ayer Itam Market is very commercialise and I do not really like the taste of it. I find that this taste much better.

This few hawker stalls is located at the round about of Ayer Itam Junction and now it had attracted many other local tourist as when I was there, alot people speak cantonese in the area.

This is one fine bowl of laksa that comes with a lot of mixture of vegetable such as finely sliced vegetables including onions, cucumber, red chillis, pineapple, lettuce, mint and pink bunga kantan then shower a few rounds with sour and and a bit spicy soup base, also a spoonfull of ‘Heh Koh’ (prawn paste). RM3.50

laksa

The noodle is silky smooth and slurp it all the way into my mouth, texture of it a bit chewy that comes to my liking. Soup base is one of my prefered choice as it cook along with fish meat that had been smash and every sip I can bite some of the fish meat. It is sour and spicy enough that can satisfy my crave.

NED_6509.0_resize

Next stall that is quite famous among there is this Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup that the soup is very aromatic with its well cook soup base with duck bone, pork bone and a few other ingredients that make it sweet, served along with duck meat and some pork lard to make it superb in taste. RM 3.50

NED_6510_resize

Penang Rojak is also another dish that you must have which is a mixture of fruits and mix with prawn paste. This is not the best stall and find that the prawn paste is quite salty and its expensive as for this small portion its RM4.

Last weekend, we went down for a short weekend to Melaka and the hotel we stay is superb, Philea Resort (which will blog bout it soon) and while in the resort we skip out for a while before dinner time to hunt for some light food. Jason introduce us this place which is flock by alot people around the town area and also as far travelers from out station. Original Klebang Coconut Shake.

After reaching there, we were a bit curious what is so good about this drink which so many people are queuing up. Then we join the crowd also to see what is happening.

Jason told us that this place started off with just a very small stall and after his coverage in paper and blog, their business had a sudden boom which makes what it is today.

According to him, they are the first to do coconut shake and they have their own style then ask us to judge ourselves what is so good about it.

Starting of with ice pack in a blender, then a few scoops of ice cream, then coconut water then a mini cup of sugar syrup.

Blend it n crush it with with coconut meat that place at the bottom . . .


Then pour into this tube machine. . .

pour it out cup by cup and it looks something like milk shake .. .

You can have it either Coconut Shake PlainRM 1.80

Or Coconut Shake SpecialRM2.30 with additional scoop of ice cream.

The taste of it is quite thick taste like milk shake at first and the more we sip the more normal it taste like and the ice did not crush properly and ice is a bit harsh, actually there is nothing to shout about something simple and I still prefer my Penang style Coconut shake (click here) with a plate of mee sotong which is a RECOMMENDED PLACE if you visit Penang.

So if judge it yourself lahhhh.. and be prepare to wait for 20-30 minutes in line for this cup of drink as we felt its not worth the time to wait.

AT LAST I manage to find back this western food stall which were located beside Green House Kopitiam, which my friend introduce to me famous for its Corden Bleu…Then let my friend kutuk me saying I outdate, they have been here for quite some time d.

Their kitchen looks more like a good western food stall already.

This is their menu with limited choice to choose from and those in red are consider their signature. They have slightly increase in price which I think is reasonable as the last time I dine was bout 6 years ago. Lol

Again I ordered ‘Mushroom Soup’. Which the price thought of just try la… Very nice and creamy, quite alot of mushroom slice in there as every scoop you took up there will be mushroom in there. RM4 only.

The next order was ‘Ribeye Steak’ medium rare. I got shock when the portion was serve. I am like ‘wowwww, so big piece punya lembu’.. I cant take beef so no comment on this as I get to know this is one of the nicest also mention by my friend as not many hawker area western food can cook something out like this. RM19.50 for this fat ribeye.

This is of course my favourite back in those donkey days. So I ordered back the same thing. ‘Chicken Corden Bleu’. When got served I was quite happy with the condition, as expected dry and golden brown. Once I use my knife cut it open, the cheeze in there start flowing out, you know like those water overflow, someting like that. It is stuff with ham and cheeze. With the first mouth into this mouth watering bleu, it just taste as nice as back in those days. Still have not dissapoint me after last ate it. Still have the cheeze taste yet you can still taste the ham and chicken with the strong aroma after being stuff in there and fried. Cost RM9 which I think is reasonable. The last time I ate was RM6.50 6 years back.
