Today best food in Penang! Wait. That didn't came up right. No I didn't eat this fella. I was heading to the market and this little lazy bugger is blocking my way, I squat to take this photo and that's the kind of reaction the cat gave me.
We decided to check out earlier since we found Subway at the nearby mall. As soon as we stepped out of the hotel, we changed our mind. Might as well search for local food. And GPS sent us here.
After I managed to parked my car, we walked back up to the junction to search for our food where GPS brought us here. By a glance, it doesn't seem to be accurate. It looks more like a trading port of some old school cowboy town.
This building by the junction seems to be going on renovation. The structure of the building looks more like a Pasar (market), so I guess we found the right place, but at the wrong time.
As we getting ready to leave, we found a small lane leading to the opening area behind a temple, looks like this is the alternative!
Towards the end of the lane, there's this stall by the name of Bek Kong Cheng Kway Chap. So, what is Kway Chap? Let's find out from below.
Kway is rice cake slices. Rice being grind to powder, recombined and steamed to become solid form, and sliced into thinner piece do the texture become smooth and easy to chew. Chap brings the meaning of mixture, also means animal internal organs. In the instance, rice cake slices mixed with animal organs.
Good food in mainland Penang, you'll need to serve yourself. No it's not self service oriented, but here people had been practicing self service to avoid any delay, hence most of the time shop owner got confused by who comes first. I had to stand here and wait for my kway chap.
Finally my KwayChap is here! The taste of duck meat and stew pork skin is distinctively brought out by Chinese herbal soup. Added with the price cake slices bring sliced into ultra thin manner, it'd slippery and easy to go down. I almost didn't chow down the bowl.
After kwaychap we felt there's still something missing. Had a moment of blank, like there's something we should do, but haven't thought of what it is. And here's the prawn noodle. In Penang we call it Hokkien Mee. This time, no need to stand there and queue. The stall located right next to KwayChap, within 5 minutes wait it had served. The soup is super nice, spicy, and prawn taste awesomely sweet and fresh.
This is going to be perfect when a Penang white coffee turns up on the table. I don't wanna dive into coffee talk as coffee is an entire different topic by itself. Damage for these items are RM5 for the KwayChap, RM4 for the prawn noodle, and RM1.70 for the white coffee. Isn't it amazing?
