As most of us know that Penang is really famous for its hawker food, and one of the place that I have nearly forgeten which is really famous for hawker food during afternoon among the locals under the very hot atap which is located at this Cecil Street Market or known as 7th Street market (Chit Tiau Loh Market in Hokkien), one of the busiest market in Penang filled with lots of fresh variety of ingredients also which is sardine packed with lots of nice hawker food. Can say that majority of the hawker here are old school that had pass to their kids now. Cecil Street Market
This hawker center is at peak during lunch hour and tea time that visited by a lot of people from offices and neighborhood. Do prepare to soak in sweat as the place is very hot under our hot sunny days.
Well, in Penang there are two types of Pasembor, one which is the Chinese version which adds on with a bit of jelly fish and pretty similar to the Indian version.
As for the indian version is also known as Pasembor or another word is Rojak Mamak that is also used in KL with the term known as Rojak, that actually fills with shereded cucumber, potatoes, beancurd, bean sprouts, and prawn fritters as for seafood like spicy fried crab, fried octopus or others are all optional, served along with sweet and spicy nut sauce.
One of my favourite stall in this area is this Pasembur that I had eat since when I was a kid and now the younger generations had took over from their parents. This stall is one of the famous stall in the hawker center.
Most of the time I have been here, this stall never stop working or never once I have seen them free. . Constantly chopping off the ingredient to meet the customer’s demand.
One of their secret is that the gravy.
This is one of my favourite Pasembor as the gravy is a bit sweet and spicy that blends very well with shredded mengkuang, cucumber and little mouse (as what i called in hokkien by translation). Then the unique in this stall is that they do add shredded jelly fish . . RM2.80
I would say one of my favourite pasembor and if you do visit Penang and in the afternoon, this hot place is one of the place you would want to consider for hawker food. Recommended~
