After wrapping up work at about 9 pm, we wanted to have a quick and simple dinner before calling it day. Our man here was in some unexplainable deep craving for wan tan mee.
We drove to Chulia street but unfortunately, the famous stall selling wan tan mee just outside the furniture shop was closed for the day.
Hunger pangs. We parked, and settled down for the next best thing: another wan tan mee stall, just a stone throw away.
There was something about red coloured char siews on my noodles that I just could not agree on. I like my charsiews REALLY grilled and not coloured.
This bowl of wan tan noodles had absolutely nothing to shout about. Plain jane, nothingto gain. RM 3.30. OK-lah.
It was an extremely hot day, and I’d thought I load myself up with some vits to avoid falling sick again. The orange juice had no ice and no sugar, hence half a cup @_@. This is a materialistic world. Orange juice was…..normal. As a matter of fact, a little sour for me.
But, I gotta give a thumbs up for just having these by the road side. Watching foreign tourists’ high enthusiasm to have a taste of local food. Under a cool wind breeze. Pretty awesome way to end a long day.
Of course! What is Penang, without Char Kueh Teow? I missed out taking note of the kopitiam’s name, it is located at a corner lot of a row of shophouses near Green Road.
This nameless, unseemly, not spoken of CKT, did kick up a storm! The portion was not big, a great thing for ladies and also it won’t get you feeling sleepy because of a heavy breakfast. The CKT was fried with duck eggs, giving them a daffodil like bright yellow colour.
More Penang foodieventures to come!
