Laksa @ Joo Hooi Cafe  Cry Aug 09, 2015   (Related Review)

I wonder why Penang Road laksa (RM 4.50) is touted as the best laksa ever. I am so frustrated after going there because the laksa does not have any sour and spicy taste at all. I think any assam laksa in KL is way better than the one in Penang Road. I think they have become lackadasical due too much exposure about it. So all bloggers, please stop praising Penang Road laksa anymore and look elsewhere for it. 

There were so little ingredients inside too.

I have never been made so angry and flustered by Char Koay Teow (4.50) till today. I went to Penang Road as I brought my mother's Sarawakian friend there. The Char Koay Teow hawker had the audacity to tell me I needed to wait at least 45 minutes and I agreed, thinking that good things are worth waiting. Boy was I wrong because it turned out to be so horrible. The egg was in balls and the egg yolk was still evident. The bean sprouts were dying and not crunchy. There were black parts of the wok stuck on the char koay teow. The only thing edible are the 2 big prawns which is fresh. The worst part is there was not a single cockle inside which totally made this a complete failure. Char Koay Teow without cockles is not char koay teow at all. Seriously, I wonder what is theget difference of the duck egg. Probably it is easier to just say, never be fooled by tourist attractions or food guides you get from the airport.  

All in all, I still prefer my all-time-favourite char koay teow with a lot of cockles and octopus at Sin Hwa coffee shop in Pulau Tikus.

If anyone post the question of "Where is the best char koay teow in Penang?" My answer never fails to be at Kedai Kopi Sin Hwa. In fact, every time I come back to Penang, I would definitely make this place my first morning/noon stop. Actually, I never really knew this is the actual name of the kopitiam till today when I decided to write a review about it and starting googling it. I always tell people it is in the middle kopitiam opposite the Pulau Tikus police station. 

The char koay teow here is just nice and not too oily. There were octopus and average sized prawns. The smell is fragrant enough yet the char koay teow is not dark coloured like what people normally fry in KL which usually disappoints me. 

I saw many newspaper cuttings of how the char koay teow hawker won awards in char koay teow cooking contests too.

Roti Babi @ Pulau Tikus Market OK Aug 09, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Stall / Warung

Frankly, I have never eaten roti babi for ages, ever since my grandmother was around. My grandmother used to cook this at home when she was still alive. I am not really a big fan of his as I dislike minced pork. Anyway, since my uncle from UK has never tried this before, we ordered this for his sake. 

The roti babi is deep fried bread with egg sandwiching minced pork. But this stall mixed the minced pork together with sengkuang hence making me feel that I was eating jiu hu char or stir fried sengkuang. So for both mum and I, this is not really what roti babi is.

In my Penang Hawker food marathon, I brought my cousin for high tea and early dinner here. 

I ordered Pai Tee which was quite sweet and delicious. 

There was a dollop of chilli, just in a small amount and not too much to make you go har! 

Worth trying this here if you happen to come here. 

The worst item here to avoid is the seafood. I ordered the shells as in the picture and it turned out that the fillings were so difficult to dig out and we ended up wasting almost 15 shells! Mum was very angry and told the hawker and though she reboiled it, the fillings still was a great challenge to be dug out.
