Dry Prawn Mee, Kolo Mee & Coffee In Penang

Last week, hubby and I followed a friend for a short day trip to Penang. Our friend came to pick us up from our house at about 7:30 am. The weather was nice and cool and it was a smooth drive all the way with light traffic. My hand phone's battery need charging so I didn't snap any photo along the way. Our friend took us to Big Crab Street Food at Fortune Park, Jelutong for breakfast. We ordered the following for 4 people to share.

2 plates prawn mee dry version. This is my first time tasting dry prawn mee. I still miss the prawn mee in soup version.
1 bowl kolo mee with bbq pork.
I love the noodle used for this kolo mee.
2 pieces of crispy thin peanut and coconut pancakes.
Peanut and coconut - yummy combination for the pancakes.
Some dim sum items for sharing.
Saw this hanging pot after I alighted from the car. Interesting to see plants growing upwards and downwards from the pot.
Our friend took us to this old coffee shop for Penang's coffee.
My unsweetened coffee with evaporated milk - kopi-C kosong.
Some toast with kaya (coconut egg spread) with coffee.
After our coffee treat, time to move on to get some street snack.
Famous Fried Tee Kuih (neen koh) in Penang.
Sold at RM 1.50 per piece.
We left Penang for Taiping at about 1 pm.
A variegated Gardenia flower from my garden.
Clay vases from Wood Craft museum, Ipoh.


Pretty words may hide a wicked heart,
just as a pretty glaze covers a common clay pot.

  2. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post keep your awesome work
    I have many hobbies. I love to travel and read. But my favorite hobby is cooking. Let me tell you why! First, I'll tell you a little bit about why I started cooking. Secondly, I'll give you some information about what I like to cook. Third, I will say how I use the vietnamese food for cooking.

    When I started cooking, I was 10 years old. My mom wants me to be a chef. She has always believed that girls have to make different types of food, because one day they will get married. In my country, it is normal for girls not to cook. I feel lucky because I can cook many dishes. Now that I cook some of the dishes my children and husband love, I become happy and proud of my mother and myself. i am a food blog

  3. What a short day trip to PG. I don't think I have eaten at fortune park jelutong. I like eating crispy apam too. Both plants made full use of the pot to grow upwards and downwards. The coffee shop must be popular for your friend to recommend to you. Where did you buy the neen Koh in PG? I have been to PG many times but don't know where to buy neen Koh.
