lorong baru, Penang

some backStreet strikes in da New Lane

We used to roam with a frenzy in da good olde days at this little orgyfest of the A to Z of Penang's all-in-one eat-eveything & anything R & R ( refuel & recharge ) centres. From grilled chicken backsides ( bishops' noses ) to broken fish head noodles to inside total pig .

Just down below where Sunway Hotel off Jln Macalister is.




We particularly like this one here. Round and fair tubes and hoses hanging loose. Smooth or jagged. Springy or crispy. Long short or fat. By the way it is a rice porridge speciality. It is not El Cerdo ( the classy expensive KL pig specialist ) but it is fantastically cheap and even puts the famed Petaling Street( KL ) morning porridge guy ( pork intestines version ) to shame if we only talk about taste and originality ok .

Brewed to perfection , from incomparable Gluttonland. Only a few ringgit(s) a bowl.






Just drink it !






then this simply simple dish. Chee Cheong Fun Penang style. Just some flat rice vermicelli strands , sprayed with black and brown sauces topped with sesame seeds...super smooth and fair.
But quite pungently delicious ( or not as the case may be ).


Welcome to the Pearl of the Orient !

i hope this is an old post - not that you had been to penang recently??? because if no, i'll be disappointed that you no inform me! dun wanna meet me! :(

esp. when you are at new lane hawkers centre - this is the place i'm very familiar with as visit it many times (since the church i goes to is just next door).

luckily you got the right chee cheong fun stall which is good. there is another chee cheong fun stall, not so good. in fact, in new lane's hawkers stall, there are many same kind of food/dish with more than 1 stalls! that's why you need a penangite to point out to you which one is the better one!
