Penang Hometown Trip 2010:-)...

The following are some photos taken when I was back in Penang, Malaysia, my hometown in July:
Above: Malaysian-style curry and spices...

Above: Nyonya Kuih (Nyonya Snacks/Dessert Delicacies)


Above: Mantou (Chinese plain buns) with curry crabs...yummm..loved the mantou..
Above: I loved this dish, it was some kind of soup with yam in it..i was craving for yam so much before returning to Penang, so i got my fix of yam on that night!..hehe...
Above: Malaysian famous Curry Fish Head...yes this dish only has a large fish head with vegetables, nothing else..
Above: Another hawker style feast with pipis, bee hoon, mud crab ( i had alot of crab on this trip back, would've cost me an arm and leg if i were to have it here outside)..
Above: A simple meal of malaysian-style dry wantan mee and my fav hawker drink when bck in penang, the hearty and healthy barley 'pheng' which is iced barley drink...had this in balik pulau, went there for durian season and also to visit this 'little village' on Penang Island..i've never visited before i think..


Above: Dried Fish...Balik Pulau...
Above: Haagen-Daz Ice-Cream...
Above: My favourite and most visited korean restaurant in Penang..been here for more than 10 years, since my highschool days...:-)
Above: Taiwanese food at Queensbay Mall...this was surprisingly good...full of goodness and rich in the 'hearty and home-cooked' department, if you know what i mean...
Above: Self-Explanatory. Ha..

Above: Japanese Food at Miraku, G-Hotel Gurney Drive..
Above: Malaysian drinks hawker stall...
Above: Teochew Food in Penang..another favourite restaurant of mine whenever I'm back in Penang...we go to this place for Teochew cuisine whilst we go to another place near Chinatown for Hainan Food..
Above: Durian...yummy..thank god it was durian season when i went back to Penang!
Above: Malaysian style Wantan Mee with the top bowl being Fookchow Malaysian Fishball Soup with Tanghoon...

Above: My Favourite Ramen place in Penang...Ramen Yataimura in Pulau Tikus..
Above: My MOST missed food in Penang and something I salivate over whenever I'm thinking of food in Sydney whilst dreaming about Penang food (amongst other countless Penang delicacies!)...Nasi Kandar! I ALWAYS have ladies finger vegetables with tauhu (rough beancurd), curry sauce, with curry sotong..yuMMYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!! PS: Also, in case you're wondering what is that large bowl that i'm drinking off, it's teh tarik, malaysia's national drink..very sweet n nice, u can get it in sydney as well for $3.50 at mamak, chinatown...very expensive as you can tell..

Above: My obligatory Chicken Rice meal at Singapore Airport whenever I transit Singapore..the chicken rice in Singapore is simply heaven...even at the airport:)

As readers can see, its turned out to be essentially a food photo-essay journey, hasn't it? Hope this has enticed readers (whom aren't from Penang, Malaysia) to visit it soon for its world-renowned food!!:-) Hehe...

YUM! So that's what Food Heaven looks like.

I think I need to make a special trip to Penang next year. ;)

BTW, what variety of durian is that? I was surprised to see that the one in the middle has such thin skin.

Hi hcpen --

Yeah, I often feel that my main activity when (back) in Penang is eating. Either that or discussing which places are good to eat at and what's particularly good to eat at them! :D

hcpen said...

YTSL: Oh, yes!:) Totally agree..
