Kam Heong Crab @ Terubong Seafood Restaurant

Previously when we had claypot crab rice, we were not able to satisfy our craving for crab. Our friend told us Terubong Seafood Restaurant serves yummy crab. The way he describe the crab tastiness make us want to drive straight to the restaurant to eat the crab.

During my first visit to the restaurant, we were not able to try out the crab as it had finished. It was just 8pm ++ and the crabs were out of order?? !!


Seong Hoe Claypot Bah Kut Teh | Penang Food

Anyone can tell me where can I get Klang Bah Kut Teh standard here in Penang? I’ve been searching for a shop which serve bah kut teh just like Klang standard, but I yet to find one.

My friend recommended Seong Hoe to me. It’s not really the Klang standard bah kut teh, but it’s able to satisfy my craving for bah kut teh. Seong Hoe is located at Paya Terubong area.


Farlim Shell Station Laksa (Laksa Marathon Part I); Penang Hawker Food

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. :P  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.


Ah Keat Bah Kut Teh | Penang Food

It’s been raining since evening. The cold and chilling weather is killing me and urge me to get something hot to warm my heart, ops should be my body. Hehe! The first thing that pop up from my mind is the TOMYAM Thai Food at Ghee Seng Tomyam Seafood near weld Quay, but as usual he had another better option, bak kut teh, and I buy that option too. 

My favourite bah kut teh would be Lye Lye Bah Kut Teh at Macalister Road, but unfortunately this stall had stopped it’s operation sometime ago. Comparing to KL, the bah kut teh options here in Penang is less. I remembered my colleague once told me that there’s one nice bah kut teh stall near Chung Ling School, so off we went to try out a bah kut teh (bkt) stall which I never try before.

A hot steaming bowl of bah kut teh arrived shortly after we placed our order. There are so much steam coming from the pot, I am not able to get a clear shot on it. Any tips to get a clear shot on a hot steaming bowl of bkt?


Penang Hill Laksa ; Penang Hawker Food

My food hunt continued to laksa after we ate the sister curry mee near Air Itam market. This stall is located by the road side on the way to Penang Hill.

The laksa tasted more to sweet side to me which is similar to the one at opposite Peng Hwa school. I like to add in some bird chili into my laksa to increase the level of spiciness.

Air Itam Sister Curry Mee ; Penang Hawker Food

Let’s go to a unique place for a bowl of curry mee. How unique is it? You have to bend down when you order your bowl of curry mee. Why do I say so? Read more to find out…

See the picture below. That’s how the stall owner prepare the curry mee. She’s sitting on a small bench and all the utensils are also located on top of small benches. As you can see, the soup is cook with charcoal.

The curry mee looks very white when the chili is not mix with the soup. There are some well marinated squid on top of the noodle. You can always ask for a special order to add extra squid or extra tofu or extra bihun. Just get your custom made bowl of curry mee here.

When I was having my bowl of curry mee there, I heard one customer order for less bihun with extra squid and chili. And I saw the bowl of curry mee… a generous portion of squid and the chili. I saw sweat were dripping from the man’s head when he consume that bowl of curry mee. But he seems like enjoyed it very much.
