Penang Day Trip

Had to wake up at the god forsaken hour of 6am this morning to get ready to catch the 8am flight on Firefly to Penang. Doing 3 Masterclasses today, all at Paragon Gurney, which is a very nice place really.




















So what to do, early mah, go for breakie at Lam Heng coffeeshop @ Macalister Road. Gawd, the coffee shop is even smaller than I last remembered. But we were greeted nicely by the "sisters" which was against the "grumpy aunties branding" that they had. 




Wanted hor fun with mee, and naturally they only sell kuayteow. Purists will tell me its called charkwayteow not charkwayanythingwant. Taste wise still brilliant. Lighter than normal because they rely less on dark soy and more on light soya plus good wokhei. RM5 a plate and a pretty small plate, but I think its worth it cause its duck egg and the prawns are pretty chubby and fresh. 9/10.



Can't eat everything in the shop, so settled for prawn mee. Its a small bowl but also costs RM5 which is expensive even by KL standards. Taste wise 8/10, pretty good but value wise is 3/10 as I think Champs version of the prawn mee matches on taste and even when its at RM20, its still great value at Champs. They give big big whole prawns and real full ribs, plus their chilli is to die for. Champs wins hands down.



There is the lobak place at the front of the coffee shop, couldn't eat anything more but the freshly fried stuff smelled damn good. Obviously fresh oil.




















Arrived early at Paragon Gurney, shocked to find that my favourite yoghurt place actually can be a full store here in Penang. In KL all we get are kiosks. Damn!
