I have been to Penang island many years ago (that time Queensbay Mall still not up yet). That was for an assignment when I just graduated and joined the company less than 2 weeks wtf!
I got a shocked when I see how developed Queensbay Mall, to be exact Penang today is. Property booming and even the food booming wtf!
I shall not side track. I should talk about all the nice food I had in Penang. Lol
Checked in to Sunway Hotel Georgetown.
We are lucky because the hotel rooms just renovated. But all other facilities (pool, gym and restaurant) are still under renovation =( We were having breakfast in the ground floor where the roof was leaking!!! I think it will be better if the hotel is fully renovated and completion expected to be mid 2013. Hope the hotel won’t increase the price then.
Spot the lamp? Huge table lamp on the floor? Lol
Normally I don’t list down the price for hawker food but I will do it this time round for a reason (Be mindful that the food portion is quite small one).
Lunch at New Lane, Georgetown
Laksa @ RM3.50
Prawn Mee @ RM3.50
Oyster Omelette @ RM8.50. OMG I can’t believe it is that expensive!
Apong (4 for RM2)
Lala @ RM18. This is another unexpected one but still can take it consider that the lala is quite fat la.
And one tin of hundred plus costs RM2.50. I seriously think this coffee shop is trying to ‘chop’ tourists.
Dinner at Gurney Drive Hawker Centre.
From left to right: Coconut, Popiah, Satay, Indian Rojak, Fruits Rojak, Oyster Omelette, Char Keow Teow and Grilled Fish.
Hard Rock Hotel.
Drinks at Hard Rock Café.
Cover charge RM35 per pax free 1 glass of beer/ wine/ hard liquor. They are having promotion for Mar and April 2013 – buy 1 tower of Carlsberg free cover charge for 2 persons.
I know it sound funny we had porridge in Penang. But we had too much sourness, saltiness and heatiness food until all of us kena diarrhea! We are not sure whether is due to the food we had or simply our stomach not strong enough.
Dinner at Zhou Restaurant (粥杰倫) 68A Jalan Macalister Road (Georgetown)
Minced Fish, Corriander Minced Meat and Pumpkin & Frog Congee (around RM8 – 10 per pot)
After a dinner rest, we continue to hunt for more food.
KTG Char Koay Teow @ $8 (Lorong Selamat)
This is ridiculous! The most expensive Char Keow Teow I had in hawker stall in my life! According to my understanding, duck egg is used instead of the normal chicken egg. And most of the time needs to queue for more than 1 hour! I will definitely not queue for it because it is not my type of Char Keow Teow! Too dry and can’t taste the freshness of the clam at all.
Ghee Hiang at 216 Jalan Macalister Road (Georgetown)
Tau Sar Pneah, Tau Sar Pneah (small), Hneoh Pneah and Beh Teh Saw.
I think I prefer Him Heang but it was closed on Sunday! So sad 😦
Penang has become an amazing city in such a short period of time man @_@
