We went to Tai Thong this morning, around 11 am because my little boy suddenly wanted to eat loh mai kai and char siew pau. Nay, see my little boy with the Chief Minister. Hehehe…
After we had our mid morning snack of dim sum at Tai Thong in Cintra Street, we walked a bit.
We passed by this deep fried oil crullers shop. Yau char kwai or oil fry ghost. I immediately remember the post from Penang Tuapui. And I couldn’t help smiling because they cussed the guy who was sitting there relaxing. The guy is again sitting there, relaxing by reading his newspaper. It is funny because it is like from Penang Tuapui post to my encounter this morning, he had been doing nothing but sitting there reading the papers.
The oil they use today seems very ‘clean’ and not those dark, dark, thick, thick goey stuffs. So, I bought two pairs of the yau char kwai.
So oily can die. But it is so crunchy and hot. Once in a blue moon, eat a little bit, ok lah.
The guy reading the paper’s duty is just to pack and collect money. Then, he went back to reading the newspapers again. I took out my camera and started taking photos and was waiting for him to scold me or something. But he didn’t. Maybe because he thinks I am taking pictures of my son who was fascinated with the suddenly swelling of the eu char koay in the hot oil.
Across the road, there is a biscuit shop that sells traditional biscuits and mooncake type of ‘ang kong nga pneah’. I bought some egg tarts and coconut tarts. I am not sure if the egg tarts are good because my children ate them all and they say, “ok lah…”. However, the coconut tart wasn’t that good. I am still searching for a nice coconut tart.
Anyone knows where to find nice coconut tarts like those egg tart type, please let me know ya?
