Penang Redux 3

I'm back again with more Penang food.

We walked towards the end of Beach Street, opposite the Fire Brigade. We were told that this beef noodle is very, very good. Of course, what we didn't know was, it was very, very, VERY expensive. RM7-8 a bowl!

Noodle in one bowl and soup in the other. While it looks pretty plain, it tasted very good with the chilly seen in the above picture. Dump, mix and slurp.

We each had a bowl of beef soup filled with beef balls and slices of meat. The soup was interesting as it had a slight herbal taste to it. The beef stock gave the soup an overall sweet taste to it. But worth RM7 a pop? I'm not too sure about that.

Or Chien ordered from a neighbouring stall. This was supposedly not the Penang style but the Taiwanese style. It was cooked until the egg was crispy while keeping the oysters still juicy. It was still very good in my estimation.

After days of hotel breakfast, we headed out to Pulau Tikus for some Kuay Teow Th'ng.

Small bowl of flat noodles with fish balls and some chicken meat cooked in a tasty soup. Not a bad way to start the day.

Our order of yam cake turned out to be more of a disappointment though. No sweet sauce was served, it only came with chilly sauce. Also it had more flour than it had yam. 

There's more Penang goodies to come!
