They say… you can only have ONE Char Kwey Teow… so pick!
It was a toss up between the Sister’s Char Kwey Teow.. or the Lorong Selamat Char Kwey Teow…
Sister’s – Lorong Selamat – Sister’s – Lorong Selamat… ?!
In the end… one of my colleagues decides, because my indecisiveness is causing her stomach, gastric angst.. so she DECIDES!
Lorong Selamat ! The shop has moved. But just a couple of blocks to the corner lot.. it’s cleaner… but still as PACKED!
Crazy Char Kwey Teow lady, with her crazy yellow sun-glasses/specks…
You’ve got to love it!
We tell her our order and without looking up or batting a crazy eye she says …
“MUST WAIT 1 HOUR. 40 PLATES TO FRY”
So ACTION man, this woman… but you know what? She was serious!! The Char Kwey Teow took a bloody long time to arrive I tell ya.
So we dug in our heals ordered some fried popiah, and prepared for the wait…
Still more popiah arrived.. fresh and yummie…
As well as the Lobak….
And ice kacang…
And more lobak with century egg…
Like one hour has passed and still no char kwey teow…
Then FINALLY! It gets here!
SIX ringgit worth of gorgeous, oily, sexy, yummie Char Kwey Teow! Not cheap.. but a pretty decent plate of noodles if you ask me.
Me .. I prefer mine HOT! Just look at the difference in color! Yup.. that’s almost one of the greasiest, REDDEST Char Kwey Teow you will see, this side of planet earth!
Late evening… Gurney is cast in this most gorgeous incandescent HUE…
Just look at the sky.. isn’t it pretty.
And when i see a pretty sky… i think …. MARTINI’S!!!!
Ah.. just on the corner between G hotel and Gurney hotel is this new place for martini’s called… well, erm… MARTINI !
This place looks seriously packed with the GWAILO…
We drink up every shade of the great James Bond cocktail before we head out for dinner…
Ocean Green my Penang colleagues tell me has pretty decent seafood…
Being a HUGE fan of the CLAW… I cannot wait to sink in my teeth into the crab..
Every other dish to me is just a mere pleasantry. A formality I have to endure before I get to the MAIN deal of the night! The crab!
YES! There it is! Bring out the crab! We have the baked crab in all its succulent splendor..
as well as the Salted Egg crab.. (Ham Tan Hai).
And soon to be wiped clean as well.. lol!
As we clutch our severely distended stomachs… we think we might call it a night… but.. NO! our Penang colleagues have other plans for us…
They tell us, we must go to a pub and continue drinking…
Good Grief! Are all Penangites so hardcore?! LOL…
Fine.. so we clamber into the car… and as we approach the pub, we see this amazing JAM that spans for like for EVER…
THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE!
Spin the dice… and call the other person’s bluff..!
Arrrgh.. save me..! I feel like I am being AH-LIAN-nized.. in the fastest possible manner.. lol
Ladies and Gentlemen.. you have just entered the Twilight Zone.
Kidding la… Penang people are cool.. and really know how to let their hair down..
We had a cool time that night.. and here are the mugshots to prove it
