LAM HENG COFFE SHOP @ MACALISTER RD.

This is were the famous Sisters' Cha-Koay-Teow is (flat rice noodle).... it's round the bend from a temple. This is supposably the best fried rice noodle in Penang. One sister does the morning shift, and the other afternoon.

Hence, my potion of Char-Koay-Teow came with a sprinkle of crabmeat - the other sister fries with cockles. I think the koay-teow here is over-rated... Mrs. Tan at Bormill Cafe, off Jln. Keratapi, does just as good if not a better job. They yam cake, bak-chang and otak-otak are good. The generous topping of fried dried shrimps on the yam cake is a welcome change from the usual toppings. The Hokkien Bak-Chang is similar to home-made ones. The braised soup of Loh-Mee is flavorful with a hint of 5-spice powder and garlic. This is certainly a good place to eat where one gets a variety of nice food.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
