Tom Yam Noodle @ Lip Sin | Penang Hawker Food

Lip Sin is very famous with the Super Tanker Foodcourt. But I do not like to eat at Super Tanker Foodcourt, cos I just don’t like the food there. Sometimes I was forced to lunch there as my colleagues wanted to go.

My bf created a nick for Super Tanker just for me. Super Tanker = Super Boring. No offence as it’s just me who don’t like the food there.

There one stall just by the roadside a little further away from Super Tanker (to Sunshine Lip Sin direction) selling thumbs up tomyam noodle.

See my bowl of red hot tomyam… The tomyam tasted spicy and sour. Good to have it on rainy days as it’ll warm you up. I like the minced meat which served in the tomyam. It’s marinated with the right flavour.

To my preference, Armenian Street Koay Teow Teng is more to my tastebud as the soup base is clear and sweet.

    but after a while, kinda miss the food there. the Apom with fillings not bad. belacan fried chicken also.

    Little Inbox,
    The Lai Hoe one is too spicy for me. It’s too spicy that I can’t taste other flavour.


  8. Allie says:

    Food Paradise,
    Do you miss the food there?

    Yeah, for me only the Apom and belacan fried rice is nice. :-p
