I have so much time in the morning and can afford to explore all the nooks and corners in Penang to find good breakfast. My little boy has gone to kindie and for the first time in six years, I have a whole morning to myself. Previously, when he is home, he sleeps till late and I have to babysit him all the time.
Let’s see what have I eaten since Monday:
Monday – Breakfast at Jones Road/Kelawei Road corner at some Malay warong. You must try the freshly fried curry puffs. It is the corner stall and they have really fresh and hot curry puffs, at RM1.50. There are other stalls like roti canai stall, kedai kueh and nasi lemak.
Tuesday – Breakfast at Air Putih market, eating koay teow thng and jawa mee.
Wednesday – Breakfast at Red Tea House opposite Sunshine Farlim. This dim sum place has a lot of items not found at other dim sum places.
Thursday – Lor Mee and economy rice at Kedai Kopi Seng Thor.
Sigh…..I am like a hungry ghost because I normally do not get to go out in the morning. Now, I get to explore with hubby on bike because we can ronda into all the markets and crowded places. There is something different about riding a bike.
I went to Chowrasta Market to buy some dried shrimps. Normally, the lady boss will show me the most expensive dried shrimps, at RM 6.90 per 100 grams. She normally tried to frighten me with ‘don’t buy Thai dried shrimps, buy local ones, safer, cleaner, no additives etc etc’. Today, she recommended something cheaper for me, at RM3. She told me, “All hairbees the same lah, this one RM3 per 100 grams, very good for making sambal hairbee, no need to pound, so easy.” Looking poor has its perks.
Back to the lor mee in Kedai Kopi Seng Thor……I find the loh mee rather bland. It costs RM3.50 per bowl and there are only eggs and pig’s skin. I like the loh mee at Kuan Yin temple more because that one has all kind of icky spare parts like liver, intestines and tongues of the pig.
