Penang delicious trip Part1

It was a long weekend last week (good Friday & Easter Monday) so we decided to go for a trip. 
As the title goes, we went to Penang! Not for the scenery, not for the historical buildings but for the FOOD! haha! 

We followed a good friend to Penang all the way from KL using the North-East highway. It was pretty scary at night when there's not road lamp and everyone is driving around 110km/h. 

When we reached Bukit Mertajam, it was almost 12 a.m. and our stomach were making all types of funny noises. So we decided to grab some breakfast dinner =_="
We went for famous Penang Fried Kueh Tiao

I just can't tell why Penang's fried kueh tiao is always so much better compared to those fried in Kuching. This stall is not selling ordinary fried kueh tiao but they fried their kueh tiao with salted duck egg! Further more, they only start their business during late at night until the wee morning hours. By the way, this stall is located at the "tua chiu ka" or literally translated as "under the big tree". (only Penangites know where the exact location >_< ..i guess)
After a delicious plate of Kueh Tiao, we went to "pek kong cheng" a.k.a "the front of uncle" for another round of feast. It was actually a hawker stalls area infront of the "Tua Pek Kong" temple.  However, we didn't find a seat because the place was too crowded even it was like 1 o'clock  in the morning! Guess what, they were eating "economy fast food"! We were like, WTH! I guess Penangites were so busy that they don't even have time for dinner =_=" 
We returned home for a short nap before heading out the next few hours. 

It was around 9:30 am when we go out for our breakfast at the nearby "pasar" in Bukit Mertajam, Pasar Awam Taman Sri Rambai.
Pasar with a heavy "S" >_<

We ordered few local specialties for breakfast.
To be honest, the food were so so only. Kuching's breakfast tasted better! >_<

Anyway, more foods to come.... Stay tune!
