Penang Food Trip
This is a continuation of my Penang-KL trip.
I got so tired from jet-setting. My ears got really wonky and I got so sleepy. So, after eating some nice char siew fan (adobo rice), I just slept. I was awoken by the sound of my phone ringing.
It was Angeline Angeline and Satkuru picked me up with Ed at our Hotel and drove us around Gurney drive before meeting the other Penangites. It was 6pm then but there was still sunshine. 7pm, there was still sunshine.
My first nai cha (milk tea) of the day. This was actually the milk tea I had for lunch. I love going around Asia because they have lots of milk tea everywhere. It always helps when I order something spicy.
my favorite Char Siew Fan (Adobo Rice)
7pm but there’s still sun. You can check the map. Geographically speaking Philippines is on the more Eastern Part but Malaysia follows the same time as us.
Sorry, it’s a little bit underexposed. I really didn’t edit much and besides, I don’t know how to Photoshop
I got tips from everyone I know, even Filipinos who have been to Penang, that street food in Penang is the best.
so street food it is…
not sure what this is but it might be pig kidney
It gives Khoay Zhiap its authentic salty but soury flavor I believe
Khoay Zhiap is only found n Penang and Lasker said, they only prepare it like weekends. Perfect timing for me
Khoay Zhiap is like our soup number 5
If you don’t know what soup number 5 is… it’s like sinigang or nilaga with cow testicles
I know I have eaten the weirdest things *faints*
This is the Khoay Zhiap soup not bad tasting. You can also opt to have it with rice and I like rice better yummy loh, but not for those with high uric acid.
Char Kway Teow (CKT) My favorite noodles of all time! Spicy is good. It’s not the best CKT if it’s not spicy
It’s flat noodles with egg and bean sprouts. They also put usually shrimp and other veggies.
mehhh… I forgot what this is called but according to the owner of Nasi Lemak’s resto here in the Philippines, this is Cheng Tng. It’s just water and ice with some fruit syrup. Lychee and beans and other sweet things are in it too
I gulped this and ate the fruits when the CKT got really spicy
You know, I’m very sensitive with spicy food.
Chicken Feet We call this “adidas” in the Philippines because it has like three lines lol
Curry Puff! It’s like empanada but it’s very big like the size of a Calzone. They have more meat and potatoes though and really spicy. But don’t worry, if I can take the spice, you will too YUMMY!
Food Place in Gurney Drive. A lot of people are here. Locals usually eat here more often than refined restaurants.
The cuttlefish – so big!
I got lychee ice which is made of real fresh lychee fruit and juice extracts. Yummy! I don’t know why we don’t have these here.
The green one is umbra (according to Willaz) it’s a fruit as well. I think we have the same fruit here in the Philippines but I forgot what.
This is Kuih Kosui, Kueh Nyonya. It’s like pandan rice thingy with coconut shreddings It’s like our own kuchinta but made into a ball
oh yes! they have their own version of Taho and this is the sweetest thing! They call it Taufu fah
This is the Fried Popiah, kinda like Lumpia
Kaya Kuih (not sure) but it’s sticky rice. One of the ingredients is supposedly a flower that causes the blueish color.
It’s really spicy but it’s definitely yummy! It’s a salad made of shredded cucumber, Chinese Turnip (hong kuak), potatpoes, bean curd (taukua), bean sprouts, prawn fritters (hae chi) and sliced boiled egg. The spicy sauce is made out of sweet potatoes. They know how to create and invent very good food ^_^ It’s also called Mamak Rojak or Cheh Hoo depending on which version of food this is (Indian or Chinese).
More milk tea and
another vrsion of CKT I ate near our hotel… yummy! I’m telling you, I’m craving for one right now gaah!
Chili bits you’re supposed to put on CKT if you want it to be spicier lol
oh yaye! What’s this burger doing in this blog post? oh well, you gotta McD everywhere once in a while
Till the next blog post
Next time, KL time baby!
