So mostly I went to Penang to eat all the wicked stuff there, as you’ve probably noticed and I drove there this time so I was free to roam around, I chose not to get a local to show me around as I know quite a few places myself and I have more fun using a map and being independant.
I headed out to Lorong Selamat (off Jalan Burma/Macallister) to find some famous Char Kway Teow, it’s been in the paper and shit so it must be ok, I’ve had the sisters one before with crab meat on top so I wanted to try this one.
I was greeted with the sight of a rather long queue..
And believe me when I say it was a VERY hot day.
What better to cool you down while waiting than some refreshing Ais Kacang!
It’s apparently quite famous in Lorong Selamat too.
But well really it was worth the wait!
Some of the hugest, freshest best cooked prawns I’ve had, it was really really good Char Kway Teow.
And a good sized portion, for around RM7 if I remember correctly.
I had some Popiah too, which were good, not too rich and nicely made.
Here is the famous lady with her red hat and safely goggles cooking Char-ing the Kway Teow.
Seriously, worth the wait!
