Light Snacks for Afternoon Tea ; Penang Hawker Food

Weekend always means late breakfast for me. So normally later in the evening we will have some light food before the dinner. Let’s go for some fried economic bihun, fried popiah and tong sui. How does that sound?

It’s a small stall located at Choi Wui Lei Tea Carden Coffee Shop which is located same row with Yaki Teppan Restaurant . It sells some light snack which includes popiah, chai koay, fried raddish cake, tong sui and etc.

This is the stall. There are a few choices of tong sui available; red bean soup, black glutinous rice soup, sweet potato soup and etc. The black glutinous tong sui is the hot selling item.

It’s thick and rich with black glutinous rice. The amount of coconut milk added is just nice to bring enough fragrant to the tong sui.

The coconut milk will only be added when you order the tong sui. I like black glutinous tong sui a lot :)

Economic fried noodle. This one just fall into the mediocre range. Lucky that enough ‘wok hei’ is present and the noodle is not too soggy. I’ve tasted very lousy economic fried noodle with very soggy noodle and no wok hei present. Plus tasted bland.

There are a few choices of add-on available; fried egg, luncheon meat and sausage.

Deep fried popiah and chai koay don’t shine. The popiah skin already turned soft and the chai koay’s skin was tad thick.

Anyway, it’s a good place to stop by for a quick afternoon snack. The tong sui is definitely my recommendation!

This stall is closed on Sunday. It opens around 11am – 4pm.

    Yea, if the coconut milk is added during the cooking, the dessert tends to be watery, and not fresh.

    Indeed my job allows me to have ‘har ng char’ (tea break) during weekdays. Sometimes we will come here for tong sui, but most of the time the black glutinous tong sui is finished. Only left red bean. :P
