There're a few things worth mentioned during my trip to Penang last week. Beside the excitement of meeting up with bloggers, what else but food? hehehe.
We had nasi kandar on our first night. When talk about nasi kandar, the Kayu Nasi Kandar is always recommended by the local without fail.
The food was great. Their curry and thick spicy gravy were our (or mine) favourite. Superliciously yummy. The grin of satisfaction on our face tells it all.
We ordered curry chicken. It may look plain, but the taste was marvelous! And the chicken was so tender.
The fried squid. Just so-so. Nothing much to brag about.
This one was interesting. Grounded chili stir fried and mixed with crumbs. Interestingly fragrant!
Of course, beside these dishes, we ordered some gravies and vegie too. I got so disappointed with the vegie. But what the heck, mamak restaurant were never good in preparing vegie.
On the second day, we went all the way to Gurney Drive. The heavy traffic had spent us 40 minutes on the road. Aiyooo...
What to eat at Gurney Drive? Everyone unanimously suggest pasemborg (pasembuk). A dish with mixed varieties of fish cakes, crackers, squids, vegie, noodles, served with thick and spicily sweet gravy on top.
Our thousand thanks to Suhaimi and Nazz to lead us there. Otherwise the journey may take longer than that.
The pasemborg was fantastic. But to some, the gravy was a bit too sweet. As for me, It's nice. But the price is rather expensive. I spent RM10 for that plate, thanks to a huge piece of fried squid.
I would like to thank Nazz for his wonderful gift. Some malay snacks from his kampung. TENKIUUUU Nazz!
O, ya, he gave me some sweet corn too. Also from his kampung. Very Sweet!!!
I felt that we didn't have much time to explore the Pearl of the Orient to the fullest. I think we should spend more time there in our next visit. Probably i can spend more time with the bloggers and have dinner together. Kan Maz?
