Food food food.
Penang is the Unesco World Heritage Site, but it should be classified as World’s food heaven.
Like I mentioned earlier, our mission is to EAT only. Thanks to Chanlilian, the famous Penang blogger, she introduced us to wander around our hotel, as there are lots of good foods somewhere around.
After we check-in Tune Hotel, take a rest, and we are off to Jalan Selamat. Hmm, watch out for the tune hotel review.
At first we thought to have our lunch at Old Town Cafe, but it would be a waste if I did not try the local foods. From my research, I understand that Jalan Selamat is just somewhere nearby our hotel. I must get the famous CKT for my dear, he heart CKT so much.
Passing through Jalan Selamat, a row of old shops, mostly are not operating.
There’s also some other eatery shops and medical centre.
Kafe Heng Huat – The most famous Char Kuay Teow in Penang.
Our luck is pretty good. The good smell lead us to the roadside stall along Jalan Selamat. Although there was just about 10 stalls operating, but we found this!! The very famous Char Kuay Teow aunty, with her very stylish head and wearing a crocs sandals frying her very expensive Char Kuay Teow.
The stalls are just located by the road side.
This is the CKT aunty. The only conversation I heard is , Ai Heam or Mai Heam. Its pronounced to be spicy or not spicy.
The Char Koay Teow come in 3 sizes. Prices vary from the portions and numbers of prawns.
Kafe Heng Huat is actually just a normal coffee shop, but the main attraction mainly come from this CKT stall.
The aunty is assist with a girl for taking orders and a few aunty who will deliver the CKT to the customers.
Big Fire, Big Wok.
The truth that makes the CKT nice is due to the Charcoal Fire burning underneath.
The Charcoal was ignite by a fan.
Caution, Its HOT~!!!
Did you notice that her Crocs’s sandal was burnt by the Charcoal too?
Don’t play play, she’s wearing a genuine Crocs la!
Ok, at the mean time lets take a look at the shop. See, it was Monday evening, but everyone seems so free, rushed here just to eat the CKT~!!!!
Regardless of Age, people are coming in and going out.
Its too delicious, and heartwarming, to see the mom is actually feeding her daughter a mouthful of CKT. Sweet.
30 minutes over.
I was so worry that the Aunty has forgotten our order. No… She’s not, she even remember that we ordered 2 BIG plates of CKT.
RM8.50 , spicy CKT with big PRAWNS.
It is really delicious…i was nicely fried, strong fire burnt smell~!
Anyway, this is a hot weather, do served with a glass of Fresh Ice Longan.
Other than the CKT, we can actually have the side orders from the road side. Hence I asked Alex to check out what else is edible. Ahem~
This is yet another PoPiah stall nearby.
My popiah in preparation progress.
RM 2.60 for 2 pieces. (min. order)
It’s actually a little but watery from the ingredient. Alex is not a fans for Popiah, he said Popiah is tasteless. But I’m the opposite, I love popiah so muchie!
Not to be missed, the Penang Asam Laksa.
I never know Sardin can be so tasty with Asam Laksa….
Yum yum, its spicy, its soury…
Although I hate the celery smell, but never mind, i can still ignore it and continue the yummilicious Asam Laksa.
Thumbs up for all the food from Jalan Selamat!
Another CKT stall, but not as popular as the Heng Huat.
Sorry boss, I’ll come back to you next time..
This complete the Jalan Selamat food hunt. Coming up next, New World Park , Penang.
