It was day 2 of my stay in Penang and we went to Pulau Tikus market to look for something that I wanted to eat for a long time.
Pan chien kueh! I remember this kueh that my mum used to buy from the Damansara Utama pasar malam when I was in secondary school.
I can't wait!
Then we walked to the market in search of kuey teow thng.
Along the way I saw lots of stalls selling all sorts of things.
While waiting, I had my long awaited pan chien kueh. I like this version - thick and chewy. The ones I have had over in PJ are those thin crispy ones which I don't like.
My partner got us the kuey teow thng with duck meat.
I sipped the soup and it was good.
The fish balls were springy and the kuey teow slippery smooth. So good!
Later in the day, we went in search of something to pacify our stomachs. We did not want to eat too heavy because of the dinner that evening.
Mee goreng mamak!
I've never had this before. This was my partner's and I taxed just a bit heh..heh..
Nice! Nice! Regretted not getting one for myself. What I loved the most were the potatoes, of all things wahahaha!!
Washed down with gandum (Penang people call this kantung, you know it as mak chuk).
I was still full from breakfast because I have stopped eating breakfast since starting intermittent fasting. Well, when you are in Penang you must be mad to fast!
And yes, I did get to eat char koay teow and asam laksa and cendol the next day.
