My Very First Penang Trip [Part 1]

Hi all!

Last month, I had my sole trip going up to Penang for the first time. It wasn't really a pleasant experience for me because I went up on a public holiday itself and the bus ride actually took about 7 hours plus. I did not expect the delay and being stuck in the jam is really tiring though I did not drive. When I reached the destination, the number ONE thing that came into my mind was Char Kuey Teow!

The bus took me to the bus terminal and from there I was warmly welcomed by Isaac, Ivan (Isaac's brother) and YY, who came all the way from Kulim to meet up with us.

This place was opened somewhere in the year 2008 and it has become one of the famous food court place in Penang.

Penang Char Kuey Teow - RM4.50
This one with duck egg, taste not too bad but surprisingly PJ has better char kuey teow than this.
We had the spicy and non spicy one, spicy one definitely taste better for me.

Ice Kacang - RM2
This one is good, it has been a last time since I last tasted an ice kacang.

Chee Cheong Fun - RM 4
Just an ordinary chee cheong fun that I no need to describe.

Loh Bak - RM 12
This one is good, a variety of light food such as fried toufu, etc...

Penang Cucur Udang - RM 5.50
This one has a few medium size prawn in it. Taste good too but slightly a bit too oily.
The chili sauce is just nice.

Cendol - RM2
Ivan has this, I didn't get to taste this since there's too much food on the table.
