Hubby is out. Baby is asleep. I am all showered and curled up in bed…with my MacBook Pro. My quiet nights in are usually spent reading or editing photos. Tonight, it is the latter; I am pulling out photos from my recent trip to my mother’s hometown, Penang. And you know what? This is really bad news for you, especially if you are hungry.
Lorong Seratus Tahun Curry Mee
Anson Road Kway Teow Thng
Penang Road Chendol
Pulau Tikus Kueh Talam and Pulut Tekan
Rangoon Road Banana Pancake
Tok-Tok (Wanton) Mee from a random backlane of my Ah Ma’s place
Leong Muah Chee (location unknown as Uncle Leong flits from one location to another. It was out of sheer luck that I chanced upon his pushcart at Lorong Selamat).
Told ya it’s bad news. Nope, am not the least bit apologetic.
P/S: Reviews on the above? All are my favourites since I was a little girl, and all are recommended by my mother’s family in Penang. With the exception of chendol, which has proven to be consistently disappointing as standards slipped over the years. Pity. Oh, the muah chee? A random GEM that I chanced upon while on the hunt for an afternoon snack at Lorong Selamat; nope, not even my relatives know about it. *smug* It is the best muah chee I’ve ever had. Everything is freshly made, from the pillowy soft and silky smooth muah chee to the toasted ground nuts to the addictive, fragrant fried shallots. This is saying a lot, as I’ve tried loads of muah chee done up this way in Penang over many years, and Leong is unbeatable. Wishing you luck hunting him down!
