Penang Food | Supper @ Ali Kopi

It’s 12am in the midnight and our stomach is crying for food. Since it’s weekend, so we decided go out to hunt for supper. Hahaha…

Suddenly thought of this stall which was told by a friend of mine. The stall name is Ali Kopi which is located at the lane beside Sek Men Sri Pelita. Or I can say that it’s opposite old celcom building for those who are familiar with Penang.

We ordered tomyam maggi goreng and roti john hong kong.

There’s a fried egg on top of the maggi goreng. The egg yolk is just half cooked, just the way I like my fried egg. The maggi goreng tasted not too spicy and not too dry. There’s a small chicken drumstick is hidden in the maggi.

Maggi Goreng

The person who took order from us highly recommend the Roti John Hong Kong to us. So, we gave it a try.

There are 2 fried eggs on top of the bread. There’s a sausage and a piece of cheese just below the egg. This will be a very full supper for us.

The bread was fried with some minced chicken. It looks burnt to me but taste wise still ok.

Although it’s already passed midnight when we left this place, there are still lots of customer having supper there.

Transfer Road Roti Canai | Penang Food

I believe this is a very common place for most Penangnites. A very famous place to have roti canai as breakfast. It’s located near the old main police station along Transfer road.

The stall and the dining tables are stretch along a few buildings just by the road side. Lots of people eat here, so you have to wait patiently for your roti canai to be served.

While waiting for my roti canai, I’ve order 2 half boiled egg and roti bakar as my ‘appetizer’. This roti bakar stall is just located next to the roti canai stall and the owner will walk around to take order from the roti canai customer.

Roti Bakar Stall
My favourite – half boiled egg with some pepper and soy sauce.

Half Boiled Egg
Roti bakar with some butter and kaya. I still prefer mine with butter and lots of sugar sprinkle on top (the one at Sg. Tiram of course)

Roti Bakar
The roti bakar is prepared in a way as what you’d do with satay.


You can also opt for your half boiled egg to be served on top of your roti bakar.

After waited for quite sometimes, finally my main course arrived. Roti canai served with chicken curry and lamb curry. The roti canai is slightly crispy.
Lamb curry is very spicy while the lamb meat is very tender. The best part is without any ‘lamb smell’.
Curry chicken which tasted not as spicy as the lamb curry. I noticed that the curry chicken is mixed with dal curry. To me, this one tasted not as good as the lamb curry but still it’s not bad.

This place is not suitable for those who are very hygiene conscious as this was served at road side. And you may notice that they used to stack one place on another when they serve you the roti canai. Hmm… but I just close one eye, not to think too much about being hygienic at this moment. Hehe
