Hawker Food at Cintra Street

Wondering where to have your tea time at Penang? Whenever during weekend, I like to drive to Cintra Street for the Curry Chee Cheong Fun (ccf). When I found out this ccf in year 2008, I’m liking it until now.

The ccf is served with thick chicken curry gravy. I love mine to have some sweet sauce to mix with the curry. This will create a little sweetness in spiciness.

The thick curry gravy is full of curry and coconut juice fragrant. It goes very well with the bland ccf.

When you are at Cintra Street, apart from the curry chee cheung fun you can have chinese dumplings (bah chang), yam cake and tong sui too!

We wanted to have the chinese dumpling (bah chang) that day, but we were told they were sold out! (it was around 4pm that day). So my dear readers, if you would like to try out the bah chang, visit them earlier.

For a dessert lover like me, a bowl of red bean tong sui is perfect for the tea time. They cook the red bean together with mandarin orange peel which added fragrant to the sweet soup.

The yam cake tasted good too! I like the cubes of yam hidden inside the yam cake. It add some texture to the yam cake.

Dip it with sweet and chili sauce, it taste awesome!

Apart from the curry ccf, red bean soup and yam cake, there are more hawker food available at Cintra Street. Refer to What2seeonline for more yummy food!

    I totally agree with you on the watery stuff curry ccf, the very bad experience I had the first time I have curry ccf in Penang. Luckily this Cintra St help to erase the bad memory of Penang curry ccf!
