Penang [檳城] • 21 OCTOBER 2015
I was walking around Pulau Tikus road to buy 4D. I stumbled upon this Kopi Tiam stall while taking a walk. There were many locals there enjoying their lunch.
I was thinking to myself since there are room for me, might as well have my lunch there.
Sin Hwa Café Assam Laksa is somewhat different as in taste as the cook would use tamarind juice instead of tamarind peels as some of the other stalls. Price :Laksa (Normal-RM3, Large-RM4)
There are two basic types of laksa: Lemak laksa and asam laksa. Lemak laksa is a coconut curry soup with noodles, while asam laksa is a sour fish soup with noodles.
A mixture of condensed milk, tea and to stir/pull until it turns bubbly on the surface to then complete it with a couple of ice cubes - must try.
Nyonya kuih nice for lunch too.
While waiting for the Char Koay Teow, we ordered a popular side dish , it’s just white toast spread with kaya, a sweet coconut egg jam (essentially super thick custard made with coconut milk and pandan leaves). We decided to share a set of the traditional kaya toast with a hot milo. A sweet cocoa powder made from malted barley and touted as a sports drink, milo is mixed with milk (sometimes sweetened condensed milk) and served either hot or cold.
I waited for 10 minutes before being served and I was pretty impressed. The prawns were large and fresh, the bean sprouts still crunchy, it wasn't oily, and the egg was delicately soft.
