Penang Food Pic Post!

It's been a while, people. Just got back 2 days ago from my mini Penang Island trip and gained few extra kg with all those delicious local food. It was all worth it, for sure. Here are some of the foods that I ate during my trip.

Yam rice with pork lard. Normal 2.5/5

"Spare parts" aka internal organs pork soup.
Incredibly tasty 4/5

Homemade Bubur Chacha with Banana! Best dessert ever!! How come KL-ites don't have this? Someone gotta put this on their dessert menu! 5/5!!!!

Some local delicacies, springy and tangy texture on the outside, crunchy on the inside. Fresh ingredients makes all the difference 3.5/5

The Famous Duck Mee stall.

Duck Drumstick Meat Noodle. The herbal soup is very very nice. Matches well with the duck meat. Tender and tasty. 4/5

Chicken Drumstick Meat with Herbal soup. Tasty as well, surprisingly different taste from the duck noodle. And here I thought they gonna use back the same broth. XD

Pork Satay!!!! 60cent each, Cheap and DELICIOUS!!! 5/5!!!!

Peanut sauce with cucumber and onions.

The view from Penang Hill.

So beautiful..

Another one..

2nd day breakfast~ My faves, Dim Sum.

Close up.. Look at the cheong fun, the fried shallots compliments well.. sedap~

Cheap and tasty 4/5

I don't think this is all we had, bet nobody take more pics after we started.. haha..

Late nite 2am supper, Loh Hokkien Mee with Siew Yoke aka Crispy Pork. *drools* 4/5

Bloody expensive Lobak. RM 15 for all this? Urgh 2.5/5

Char Kuey Tiao. Incomparable with the Bukit Mertajam Duck Egg Char Kuey Tiao, (forgot to take pic, too hungry). That is Heaven. This is just earth 4/5

Steamed Ikan Pari @ Stingray with Salted Vege broth. Incredibly fresh and tasty. Best seafood dish of the nite. *yummy* 5/5!!!!

Sweet & Sour Crab, taste OK, Cheese Crab in KL taste way better, but do check out the spiky thingy behind there. Some kinda clams. You have to prick out the meat using a toothpick from the shells. 3.5/5

Kam Heong crab, again, KL's crab dishes is better. Tak cukup heong~

Some sort of clams also. Not spicy but smells great 3.5/5

Huge! Mantou, I was expecting those tiny deep fried golden mantou.
This taste great with the crab dish sauce.

Deep Fried Squid. I don't know what they put in the batter. This is incredibly tasty, Juicy and crunchy~ 4.5/5

Kang Kung Goreng Belacan. Sedap. I don't know how to translate to English 3.5/5

Stir Fry Vege.

Deep Fried Tofu. Very fresh 4/5

Steamed Octopus.
Looks ordinary but it smells and taste great.
A hint of peanut oil and garlic too 4/5

The chili peanut sauce to go with the steamed octopus.

Red Pasembur. Taste okay. The Indian Rojak in Kepong (where I stay) beat this by a mile. LOL

Indian Char Mee with Squid. Different but Deli~~ 4/5

Group pix!

This is just half of what we ate cos some of it, we forgot to take pics cos we are too busy eating! When the food is served, it takes a lot of self control to stop yourself from diggin in while waiting for them to whip out their camera and taking pixs. LOL.

Total casualty, around RM 150 for foods alone + 4hours bus ride one way and those time spending around the car driving from one destination to another was all worth it. I can't wait to go back there soon.

is definitely a foodie heaven, cheap and tasty but if you don't like strong flavors food, I don't think you'll appreciate it. LOL.

Yummy! That pork satay looks really good. I never see pork satay here--generally chicken, and sometimes beef, but never pork.

rcLoy said...

ww_adh: Wow! There's satay there? Here I thought Malaysian food ain't that worldwide. Lol. Satay usually is made with chicken, beef, and mutton here. Pork satay is kinda rare here too, only places like Penang which is heavily populated by Chinese have it. Since pork is non-halal. U should really tried it if you have a chance, Pork satay can stand on its own without the complimentary peanut sauce.

Ahh. Pork Satay. It's like our Barbecue here in the PH less the Peanut sauce which is YUM. I ate at a Singaporean restaurant before and I ordered Chicken Satay with Peanut sauce. De-lish.

Almost all the dishes posted are quite delightful except the creepy octopus. Haha. :D

Mandy said...

Ooh, looks like you had a very satisfying trip. :)

Anyway, welcome back and happy holidays! :)

rcLoy said...

Ken: Chicken is flavorless I think, that's why when you cook chicken you need to put lots of flavors to it. Pork itself is a bit salty, that's why I think Pork satay win this competition by a mile! You should really try it if you have a chance :D

Mandy: Hello, Mandy~ Thank you! :D BTW Nicole won! Yay~

Mandy said...

LOL. Good for her! :) I was happy for her but aww for Laura.

rcLoy said...

Mandy: I doubt anyone cares about both of them after few months. LOL.
