This was my first time entering the Methodist church and I was awed by its beauty. Established since 2 centuries ago. Rustic, calm and peaceful feel when you sit down for a private prayer. .
The seminar was a success by God’s grace and the day was filled with joy and praise. Hallelujah!
After the seminar ended, we rested and headed off for a gastronomic foodieventure!
We headed out towards the left from Royal Hotel and our first pit stop….Min Xiang Tai! After a week, I am glad I am back again for more egg tarts! The soft eggy texture with the flaky crust. Ahhhh… of course this was just the beginning!
Few blocks down our path, we saw the big crowd, bright lights, heavy smoke puffing up from the corner of the streets. TONs of hungry people eating their ways through at New Lane.
We ordered almost every Penang like food we could think of and began our marathon.
Our first dish: assam laksa!
It looked so normal at first, but whaddya know. The soup was full of fishy flavour and spicylicious! About RM 3 plus per serving.
Next stop: grilled chicken wings! The marination was little sweet, but I didn’t mind. It was delicious. The charcoal smokey flavour was infused in the chicken. Pretty good grilling effort! RM2/wing.
I think I have not eaten any really BAD ckt in Penang ever. Somehow they taste fairly good on any stalls I randomly tried, including this one. It did not look like it had much wok hei and the colour did seem a little dull. But taste was totally opposite. Spicylicious indeed! RM 4.
The curry mee is the first I had in Penang in a long time. Typical chinese style. Less lemak and more chilli oil with squid slices and “heh kor” / prawn paste. Oooooh lala!
This chee cheung fun was the one that surprised us most. Looked extremely normal. But once popped a piece in…Kaboom! The ccf slice was soft outside and hot inside. With a flavour kick added from the sesames. And the the cherry on the top of the icing was the sauce. The “heh koh” and sambal mixture. YUMMY! RM 3 plus.
We whalloped our dinner within minutes and continued our foodie journey to the next location. Stay tuned!
