Any of you love Penang food? I guess most of you do right and most of you would travel up North during long weekend for the awesome street food. Guess what! Now we have discover one new outlet that newly open in Kota Damansara recently that sell alot of best Penang street food under one roof, known as Penang One. Their first outlet is in Bandar Puteri, Puchong.

pg 1 (1)

Located in the heart of Kota Damansara where parking would be a big headache for you and this doesnt stop us from hunting it. Since our first visit, we have been going back as regular and I must say that the food is as good as where you can find in Penang. Definately not 100% but its at 80% similar which is good for us down in Klang Valley here.

pg 1 (2)

I am sure many of you still have yet discover fully where is the best food in Penang and the same goes to me. The owner have this big mission that wanted to provide folks in KL for good Penang food and therefore he himself as a Penangnite have work out a contract with all this famous hawker people to provide all the ingredients. All this being transport down to KL 2 days once. Therefore the taste is pretty much 80% the same as the famous hawker owner train all the staff themselves..

pg 1 (3)

The owner have marked down all the famous hawker stall location in the map and light history on the wall where he brought down here.

pg 1 (4)

Here you go on the list if you fancy any of the street food.

pg 1 (5)

Place here are pretty cozy and service here is pretty good~

pg 1 (6)

If you worry how they cook your meal and they have open concept kitchen for your viewing and those of you who loves the Tambun Biscuits & now they are available here too with the brand Him Heang which is one of my favourite brand. Now you need not queue that long as its while stock last daily.

pg 1 (7)

Lets see what we can have here and 8 of us are already very hungry.

pg 1 (8)

What is available in the menu is sufficient to stop our craving back in our hometown and we particularly ordered the whole menu, to try out on the taste.

pg 1 (9)

Homemade Otak Otak which is one of my favourite, no doubht that this taste exactly the same as one of my favourite stall. Steam to perfection that its soft on the outside and a huge slice of fish being inserted in the middle with fragrant leaves that absorb it very well. RM4.50 I have no complain in that.

pg 1 (10)

Those of you that miss Chee Cheong Fun, its all the way from Macalister Road. Prawn paste is good and just thick enough to coat around the chee cheong fun and although its not from my favourite Genting Kopitiam but this is as good as an alternative for me. @RM 3.90

pg 1 (16)

I certainly love Bak Chang – Special Dumpling @ RM 8.90 and alot people come here make a take away back to other country as they are being made fresh and air tight it in a pack of 8 if not mistaken. Then just put it into a boiling water for 5 minutes then you can eat it after that, with sticky rice and not too salty yet with generous amount of Ingredient.

pg 1 (21)

Another version of Bak Chang will be the white base and if not mistaken is the Teo Chew style as the filling is more towards peanuts. Not bad either as Ken loves this one and me prefer the traditional one.

pg 1 (17)

For Loh bak is hail all the way from Kheng Pin Kopitiam if not mistaken as I did saw a visual on that kopitiam on the wall. The Loh Sauce is as good as it is that is thicken, prawn crackers are fried to perfection. @RM 11.90

pg 1 (18)

The Asam Laksa is pretty well known in Lorong Selamat that I have not try before. When you talk about Lorong Selamat everyone’s thought would be Char Koey Teow! Nevertheless this is as good as it is, that cook with alot of mince fish meat and top with a few slices of fish as the top as we add on with additional RM1.50 . Soup is as good as the famous ones in Penang, sour enough and light spicy end with fish fragrant taste.. @ RM 8.50 

pg 1 (11)

This is another stall that I have not tried before in Penang which is Kampung Jawa Char Koey Teow and I ask my friend they say its very good and their business hours is only from 7am – 10am daily and have to wait at least 30 minutes – 45 minutes for your plate to be serve. Will go back and try the original one but before that, the Char Koey Teow in this outlet best most of the stalls in KL. Cook till with wok hei and the koey teow is slight dry to my linking and top with huge prawns @RM 9.50

pg 1 (12)

This is the Yam Cake @ RM 5.50

pg 1 (13)

Ahh, version of Curry Mee is hard to find in Klang Valley they need to be serve along with pork blood. Most of the curry mee here is in curry soup base. Penang version is, soup is fragrant with light pandan and mild santan taste the follow I add in one full scoop of curry to make it fiery red. Perfect as it is. @ RM 8.50

pg 1 (14)

I get to know that Klang Valley is not pretty well known for Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup but i have always love mine in this version. Sou is sweet and filled with duck meat, fish balls, pork balls and fish cake that all is home made except pork ball.

pg 1 (15)

If you love New World Park Ice Kacang then you gonna love this as it taste exactly the same. I prefer the Ice Kacang @ RM 6.50 more than the Cendul.

pg 1 (19)

This make no exception as well Tee Nya Kuih from there as well @ RM 3.50. Have to be serve chill then add in gula melaka to eat along. Soft as it is and gula melaka is not too sweet.

pg 1 (20)

Muar Chee @ RM 3.90, as the difference is the peanut base as its slightly more fine.

pg 1 (22)

Rojak @ RM 7.50 is not the best one from Penang to my own preference but some they love it as well.

pg 1 (23)

This is my very own special request on my chilhood snacks. A huge slice of Seng Kuang then top the rojak sauce on the top add on with peanuts after that.

pg 1 (24)

This is what happen to us when we found something good and hail all the way back from our hometown. We order so much that we inteded to give it a sharing at first and end up most of us having each plate each.

If you are craving for Penang food and lazy to drive all the way up north, here is one of the best place you can find in Klang Valley and no complain at all. It beats alot of stall out there, and had become our weekly affair,  some is daily. 😀

Price is pretty reasonable with the concept that the owner is trying to do and portion is average. Not too big nor too small or if you compare to KL serving portion its definitely slightly smaller. A highly Recommended place by me for Penang food.

If you seated futher out at the edge of the restaurant, this is the view you going to enjoy, Marvelous view over Penang. That is why, its not cheap . .Well, you pay for the ambiance and view. .

I would say, if you are looking for something more relax and something different for meal or afternoon tea, this would be a good place to hang out once in a blue blue moon . .

*have not actually tried the food as came here for light meals only.

Another Chinese movie about China’s history which I think its very good, as for me I still want to know more about China history but there is too much and yet its in chinese which I do not know how to read.
This movie is about Confucius was one of the very first Chinese that created books, train people how to read and write, and believing in a society that ethics is very important in a state harmony. Then he got chace off by his own countryman and he wondered around China to spread his teaching.
To me, its not a bad movie as I understand more who is Confucious the great man.

Continue my very back date post. It was on the 4th day in our travel itinerary, that we have to wake up pretty early to go to Wong Tai Sin. For me, I always go to a trip I slept very little. Go walk around till very late, wake up early and walk again and enjoy my breakfast. So after every 1 got ready so my friend bring us to this shop…

 

This shop were run by this 2 lady, busy serving us that suddenly come with a group of ppl. My friend told me that the ‘Chee Cheong Fun’ very nice and also the ‘Siew Mai’.

I just enjoy eating their ‘Chee Cheong Fun add with Siew Mai’ here, is quite different from what I had in PG or KL which is they did put peanut, chili, and sweet sauce. HKD12

I after finish the first portion and I enjoy my ‘Siew Mai’, I ordered another one. It sure do have the canteen feel that I ate when I was in primary school. 🙂 HKD7

This is how I enjoyed my food. Pasar Malam style. That’s y standing nearby the drain. So when the sauce drip will go in there not on the floor which makes it geli!

Location:
I just do not know where am I, so the easiest point for me is just take the picture. 😀
There is a 7-11 next to it.

After a quick breakfast, we faster faster head to Wong Tai Sin, but glad that it was on Sunday morning, so the crowd wouldn’t be that much.

This is the only day that I have taken the train so empty as it was early morning and the best part is, you have to zoom your eyes very far till only you get to see the end part of it and I wasn’t standing on the other end, behind me there are still like 3-4 more compartments. Normally, the train is sardin pack with ppl.

Surely this train is much faster and bigger compare to our very own local Putra LRT or KTM Komuter.

Imagine, our Putra LRT x10 sardine pack like every morning rushing hour.

After short ride and exchanges of stations we had reach Wong Tai Sin station.

This is the exit that lead to the entrance of the temple.
We took a lot of pictures from the very eating spree till here and already took more than 100++ pictures already. Sot liau!

The main entrance that lead to the temple.

What my friend told us that, the temple really very ‘lenggg’ as what you wish for will come true. This is more real when during Chinese New Year everyone is trying to be the first and you have to squeeze through and cramp with the ppl as if you are the very first person to put in the joss stick what you had wish for is more ‘lenggg’.
It will be once in a blue moon I go for Tiew Cheam or shaking a holy stick which you were be given a cylinder that fills with a lot of sticks then you knell and start to tell the god what you wish for and look for a guidance. Then a stick will fall down and you have to go to a counter to take what it meant. There are good luck and bad luck.
For the very first time, when I Tiew Cheam, it happened very fast, just within a minute a stick fell.
more pics of the temple which I didnt capture : Wong Tai Sin Temple

So I remembered the stick number and went to claim what it meant, too bad it was in Chinese and have to locate a stall to help me to translate which is located behind this stalls.

The guy in that stall doesn’t look genuine as before me, there is a very young pretty lady and that guy told her that, ohh..your luck this year no good, then you have to do this and that and will perform a small ritual for you on the spot. Then it took place and it just took around 5 minutes for the whole process. When I saw the lady what she paid to that guy, I got shock. What the hell…this short thing cost HKD500? Wah lau eh..the earnings in here is even better than Doctors.

Then next, it was me and my friends turn, so I decided to let her go first as always ladies first. Surprisingly, what the guy said to the lady is nearly the same version as spoken to my friend. Then asking her would she want to perform the ritual or not. Of course we weren’t very superstitious, DON WANT Lah!!!! (HKD500…= RM250) cuz we were just playing around see how this kind of thing and ppl want to tell us. Then said that what she got in the paper is no good this and that

Next it was my turn, as the guys face had turn very unsatisfactory as knowing us are not ‘WATER FISH’ (people that are easy to believe on what the other person say or easy to be con). What he told me is the same as what he told my fried. WTF!!!! And we were very piss off… as my friend was behind me to help me to listen what he wanted to say cuz I’m not really good in Cantonese and for a translation in that paper cost HKD20. Totally not worth it and told the rest of my friend to try out other stalls. Wouldn’t careless on it lahh..just that dislike that guys attitude on trying to CON us.

What you seen in the pic is exactly converts on the back ally how many fortune teller are there.. The rest what my friend got is their feedback from it is more genuine.

As I always watch Hong Kong series that this ‘fan’ thingy is very good for luck as it spins, your bad luck away and bring in good luck. . . . So kaypo a bit and grab 2.
Both cost me HKD60 after a great bargain from my friend.

Next itinerary on the list is go back change and bath, head to Hong Kong most expensive shopping area. Central and dinner at one of the best Japanese restaurant which my friend had arranged.
