I am actually salivating when I’m writing this post. I miss the taste of it, too bad I can’t get this at Penang. Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea is a famous stall selling authentic Hainan Coffee and toasted bread which is located at Imbi Market.
My bf’s brother introduced this place to us during our last trip to KL.
Allie’s been missing in action for quite sometime. Hope that my readers will forgive me as I’ve been caught up with something lately and it took lots and lots of my time. However, I managed to take a break from the tedious schedule.
This place is suitable for breakfast and also tea time. This is one of the gem in Penang Island. It’s just a simple stall located at a small alley in Campbell Street but it’s always crowded with people. Are you wondering now what food do they sell? Scroll down… but most Penangnites will know when they see the first picture.
For those who has been following my twitter, you would have noticed that I had a laksa marathon last week. Hmm… it’d be in 6 hours we’ve eaten 3 types of laksa. That’d be like a bowl of laksa in an interval of 2 hours. Oh… it definitely make me walks 3 feets away when I see any laksa stall.
Our first stop was Farlim Shell Station Laksa. I’ve read about this in a few blogs but didn’t manage to give it a try until last week. My bf recalled that 10 years ago, he had this laksa before. He was shocked that the small stall now had grown into a coffee shop.
At first we planned to order only a bowl of laksa to share among us, but when we entered the coffee shop the laksa soup aroma rushed into our nostril.
This is a common place for Bayan Lepas workers. Sri Nibong Cafe is a corner lot coffee shop which is located at Sri Nibong opposite Ayer Cafe. When I first started to work at Phase 1 FIZ, my colleagues introduced this place to me. They told me the instant cook koay teow teng and the wan tan mee here taste good. This coffee shop is always full of people especially during breakfast and lunch hour. The environment is pretty warm and heaty which is the one thing that I don’t like about this place.
Minced meat, fish ball, slices of fish cake and a runny egg are the ingredients used to cook the koay teow teng. I personally feel that the quality has deteriorated over the years I’ve patronized this stall. Sometimes the koay teow used are in small pieces instead of flat long strand. Basically we have to use spoon to scoop the koay teow. Nothing much to shout about the soup base. My favourite would still be the one at Seng Thor Coffee Shop which of the soup base is definitely worth mentioning.
The runny egg is the only thing I like in this bowl of koay teow teng. Sound so pathetic huh. Well, this is just my personal taste ya.
Without any target eating place to go in a cloudy Saturday morning, we drove aimlessly from Bayan Lepas heading to Georgetown area and hoping to find some good food to fill our empty stomach. My bf make a turn after we passed E-gate. I suddenly recalled I’ve read from some food blogs that there’s a curry mee stall opposite Lam Wah Ee Hospital which worth a try.
Yeah! We’ve got a destination in mind and no longer need to drive around when our stomach is crying for food.
We make 2 wrong turns as we can’t locate any coffee shop opposite Lam Wah Ee. It’s quite hidden due to the low zinc roof top. Look out for the Lee Huat Cafe sign if you wanted to find this place.
Joo Leong Cafe is a famous place where many people working in FIZ area will take their breakfast here.
This coffee shop is located on the way to Penang Airport, but it’s barely noticeable if you were driving along the way. But you can always spot the long stretched cars parking by the road side, all those are their customers.
This coffee shop is famous for it’s toasted bread (roti bakar) and half boiled egg. While waiting for our bread and egg to be served, we grabbed a packed of economic noodle to fill our hungry stomach.
