Food Haven - Part 1.

So after nasi kandar for lunch, we drove 2 hours to get to Penang and checked into the Gurney Hotel. It was great! :D Nice hotel, good view and just wait to rest and wait for dinner time to roll around. :P

Met up with Wilson and Alice for dinner so that made us a group of 6 adults in an island where great food can be found almost everywhere. Decided to swing over to Tanjung Bungah cause it'll be easier to look for parking and it'll be less congested compared to driving into town.

When you're in Penang, how can you not have the famous char koay teow? Not sure where's the best but after talking to a couple of Penangites, I think there's a couple to check out. :D This one from the hawker centre next to the public swimming pool in Tanjung Bungah can be on the list... I guess. :)

I was told that this is the way Penangites like their curry noodles, with coagulated blood and cockles. Not my cup of tea but the chilli was fantastic! :) [p/s: this photo was taken after everything was mixed up, hence the state it is in.]

Some would say that it's weird to have vietnamese noodles in Penang when you have so many other choices but this one here sure is yummy! :D

How can one not order pasambur while having dinner or any meal for that matter. :D Love this stuff! Wonder why we can't find any that's as good here in KL? Oh well, guess it's good to not have it too often then you won't appreciate it as much. ;)

This was just as appetizers before we started our feasting. Love those century eggs with ginger slices. Love them to bits! :P

You know what this is. We were just ordering whatever that we see that looks delicious. ;)

This on the other hand was new to me. Mixing loh meen soup with prawn meen soup [Hokkien noodles for Penangites]. Don't ask me, it's going to be a long story why Penangites call prawn noodles, hokkien noodles while Klang Valley people knows it as prawn noodles. But this was a very interesting mix. Wonder if there's any shop here that does this.

Not a fan of beehoon cause the only time I remember eating them are during times I was sick. But this duck drumstick in herbal soup noodles was nice. :D

The finale for our 9 course dinner so to speak for 6 adults was this thai style beehoon, which tasted a little like sin chow mai [singapore style beehoon]. Another invention which does not exist in Singapore, only in Malaysia. No idea how that came about too but this was delicious! :D

A dinner that lasted for more than 2 hours had us eating non-stop. A business trip that turned into a food trip. ;) What a great way to get to know Penang. Great food with beautiful ladies. Wonder why I haven't move up there yet? Haha.
