Makan-Makan Introduction Again - Part 14

Kek Seng Coffee Shop opposite Komtar
Address: 382-384 Jalan Penang, 10000 Penang.
Kek Seng Coffee shop should be welled know to most local Penang lang as it can be considered one of the older coffee shop that selling local specialties. In fact, there are so many food lovers should have introduced this place in their blogs far early than me.
It's located at most of the buses pass by Penang Road because this is such an important road in town which just opposite KOMTAR. What the specialties to attract me is the "ko cha" (olden day) decoration and home made durian ice-cream and ice-kacang. These 2 are the highly recommended in the shop. I just find it so "ko cha" taste making me remembered during my small age, I bought the ice-cream from the mobile ice-cream selling uncle. I don't think it can be found anywhere else now a day but now, it's at Kek Seng coffee shop. The rest of specialties I would recommended are Asam Laksa and Fried Jawa Mee.

Junction of Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shan and Jalan Penang - Salsa
By now, Salsa Restaurant is not new to Penang lang especially to those food lovers. I just happened to go with my colleagues during lunch time on Wednesday after long plan for sometimes. I like the foods and the environment.
Bukit Mertajam High School Rojak Store
Rojak......??????? Don't think local penang or northern people does not know about it. It's certainly one of the main favorite among locals as well as tourist alike. Sold in almost every part of the island from hawker stalls up to a more fancied restaurants, Penang Rojak is one of the main dish to whet your appetites whenever you are in Penang.
What make the place so attractive and interested? Pork free (Chinese uncle owned the store), all fruits and tau kua. 50sens per stick. The attraction is the kuah (shrimp black paste) mix well with peanuts. It served with normal and spicy fl avers. In addition, you have to stand and eat but not mix ready but deep the serve with the kuah when you are eating. It's a must try place if you happen to comes to BM. BM Town Best Popiah
Popiah, simple but very difficult to make it nice. Found a place by introducing from a local grown BM friend. The popiah is simple but yet, not only nice, but tasty and crispy when bite. You try it then you know what I mean.


Makan-Makan Introduction Again - Part 12

Lorong Mecelister
Found the place by accident whereby my lunch mate and I plan to go Hai Ann Coffee Shop for Roti Baba (well known for western food, roti babi and spring roll). Turning to Lorong Macalister parking and the char koay kak that been introduced by Ah Sien was kept my attention on the spot. Mind been changed to this small store end upate 2 most favorite disks are the koay tiaw soup and chee cheong fun.

The Koay Tiaw Soup served with simple traditional taste served with duck meat and fish ball in a bowl by an old man who’s age looks around 70’s. Chee cheong fun, my long lost favorite previously located at Tanjung Business shop lots, opposite Island Plaza now sold here by the old couple and the son. The special is the prawn paste (heh koh) that make the whole chee cheong fun so yummy.

Hutton Lane
If you are Koay Tiaw Soup lover like me, this is another shop that you may try out . The ingredient only comes with lots of glass vegetable making the soup in vegetable sweet taste, fish ball and pork liver. You can only ordered without the liver if you don’t take inner parts. But for sure to those vegetable lover, special bowl ordered only for glass vegetable is available.

Jalan Tanjung Bunga - Sri Ananda Bahwan
Been to this place last year for breakfast. This time, we tried on dinner. The environment is an open air providing very windy and relax decoration. A must ordered items are Tandoori Chicken, Aloo Gopi, Prawn Ikalimirchi, and Mutton Claypot Nasi Biryani.

The tandoori chicken baking till just right texture in soft, juicy and crispy if compared to Kapitan Café downtown. The portion also smaller in size and for sure, it’s not a normal hard type tandoori chicken that we usually eat. Allo Gopi is vegetable curry that served with broccoli and beans. The curry are thick, full of curry flavor and thick in ingredients. Another must try dish is Prawn Ikalimirchi, it goes well with Naan bread but a bit spicy for me. Mutton Claypot Nasi Biryani? For the person like me that totally against the smell and taste of mutton yet finished the whole serving which I found it soft in texture and so juicy when bite.

Total bill for 3 persons portions are around RM48 from the dishes below. Expensive?
