We just back from a makan trip vacation (food hunting trip) where we went up to nothern part of Malaysia, Penang, Taiping and Ipoh..Our first stop was in Penang,,and we listed a long list of Penang famous street foods to try out. Let me first share with you this famous charcoal Char Koay Teow (Stir fried Chinese flat noodles) at Jalan Siam Penang..
There is no table and chair provided, so we choose to sit in the coffee shop just opposite the Char Koay Teow stall, and be prepared to wait for at least half an hour (we waited for 45mins !!). See this picture you know how tiring to wait for a plate of yummy Char Koay Teow, hehehe..
This stall is running by this old man and helping by his son who is in charge of taking order and deliver the order to customers.
Sorry, i was wrongly focus this picture, hehehe..Anyway, this was the best Char Koay Teow i have ever had, it was stir fried till perfection and full of "wok hei" !! I just love this simple Char Koay Teow with a lot of lard, "si ham" (cockles), egg, bean sprouts and "ku chai" (Chinese chives)...and also appreciate the way how they prepare this noodle by cooking with charcoal..
My son Desmond also gave thumbs up for this plate of yummy Char Koay Teow.
While we are leaving, I still seeing people wait for their Char Koay Teow even rain has started...
