Peng Hwa Laksa and Char Koay Teow | Penang Hawker Food

After the trishaw egg tart, we continue our food hunting. Ran out of idea d… suddenly thought of this coffee shop opposite Peng Hwa Secondary School which is famous for its laksa. So, off we go for laksa!

But to my disappointment, the laksa standard deteriorate ler… It tasted so sweet even I added some chili padi into it. Is it because of too much shrimp paste or the pineapple taste too sweet?

Laksa Never tried the curry mee here although I often visit this coffee shop. Let’s give it a try. Hmm.. taste wise. Too normal. Nothing special to brag on. The coconut juice taste is too heavy for my liking.

Curry Mee And finally char koay teow (ckt). This is how my bf like his ckt – without the taugeh. But I like mine with extra taugeh. Haha… totally opposite. The ckt taste good with 3 average size prawn served. Full of wok hei.
char koay teow We were extremely full after the visit to this coffee shop. The popiah and the kuih talam is nice too, but my stomach is too full. Hmm… wonder can we win penangtuapui?
