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.


Sweet and Crispy Deep Fried Banana Fritters

Tea time! What’s for snacks today? How does a sweet and crispy fried banana fritters (pisang goreng) sound like?

Other than fried banana fritters, they have fried popiah, fried tapioca, fried glutinous rice cake and fried sweet potato. This stall is located opposite Tua Pui Curry Mee. Another stall that selling similar snacks is located near Heng Ee School.


Ah Weng Koh Famous Hainan Coffee and Roti Kahwin @ Imbi Market

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.


Penang Famous Toasted Bread @ Toh Soon Cafe

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.


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.


Curry Mee @ Pulau Tikus ; Penang Hawker Food

It’s always a happy day during weekend as it’s a non working day. :) Normally we would drive to town area for late breakfast. This is one of my favourite place for breakfast, the food are great and there are lots of choices.

My favourite would be curry mee. This curry mee stall has been featured by Rasa Rasa Penang.


Top Taste Hokkien Mee ; Penang Hawker Food

What a lazy Sunday morning… I woke up late again. Not able to go to the famous Perak Road or One Corner Cafe Hokkien Mee again. *geram*! Why all the famous hokkien mee finish so early one… can’t they make more to sell? :P  or… I actually should wake up earlier huh. :P

Since we are late, so no luck on the hokkien mee already. So we have to come out with another plan on what to have for our breakfast. My bf suggested the Fried Fish Fillet Bihun Soup at Macalister Road. I immediately agreed as I love the fish there. To our disappointment, we saw that the coffee shop is under renovation and the bihun soup stall was gone. :(

Later we found out that the bihun soup stall is going to stop operation for one month due to the renovation of the coffee shop. 

After a moment of silent due to disappointment, suddenly I thought of this hokkien mee stall told by a friend of mine. It’s located just slightly opposite to the bihun stall. The Top Taste Hokkien Mee stall is located in Sin Kim San Coffee Shop. 

You can never go to the wrong stall as the stall is decorated by a big prawn on top.


Recipe: Doughnuts

Nowadays more and more donuts chain stores are blooming across Malaysia. Names like Big Apple Donuts, Dunkin’ Donuts, J Co Donut and Missy Donut are no longer a stranger to us.

I am a fan of donuts especially Big Apple Donuts. I luv those soft and fluffy donuts. Here I would like to share the recipe that we use when we baked these donuts during one weekend. It produced soft and fluffy donuts. This is the recipe my aunt always use when she bake donuts. It never fail her.

See those soft and fluffy donuts sitting nicely on a plate… I just have the urge to have a bite into it when I’m writing this post.


Recipe: Nyonya Layer Kuih

It’s baking time again!

This nyonya layer kuih is no longer a stranger in our life. In my hometown, we called this kuih ’9 layer kuih’.

We found this recipe in my aunt’s new cooking book and decided to give it a try after we bake the mango cheese cake.

Let me share with you the result before I share the recipe. This is how my layer kuih look like.
The colour looks a bit dull ya. But too much colouring also not good la. Haha…

Following the recipe, we only manage to produce 7 layers. Taste pretty good and it’s not too sweet.
