Throughout the year 2008, I have blogged over 100 food related entries. Bak kut teh, dim sum, sushi, shabu shabu, Korean BBQ, steamboats, buffets, steaks, hawker food.. You name it, I got it. So, I thought it would be interesting to list the top 21 either most memorable or nicest food I had in my humble opinion. Clicking on the images would bring you to the post itself.
In year 2007, Sakae Sushi was my favorite sushi joint. Now, it has been overtaken by Sushi Zanmai.
The teriyaki sauce is so thick and tasty, you will feel that you are getting your money’s worth. Other restaurants would be stingy and pan fry the chicken with more oil.. making the dish watery and lack of taste. I didn’t really believe it when told it was this good.. but yeah it’s true.
Kobe Beef really lives up to its reputation and price tag, it is simply a heavenly meat with unmatched flavor and tenderness. Because they are sliced thinly enough, they usually cook within seconds in the boiling broth.
Bukit Mertajam is the place where this variant of char koay teow originated. It is so well received that many have taken the opportunity to setup their own char koay teow stalls in Penang. The many cockles and prawns are the biggest contributor to the koay teow’s tastiness.
This is definitely the place for the best beef soup koay teow in Penang. You will regret if you didn’t try, no joke. And most Penangites refer this as the one “opposite balai bomba”. The other things I like are the tendons, tripe (soft jelly texture, nice) and thinly sliced beef which are cooked by quickly dipping them in the boiling soup.
The noodle here was awarded one of the best street food in Penang. You could see the news being shown in the poster put up in front of the stall. It is a pity that Heng Seng’s Eel fish ball noodle does not receive as much publicity compared to other Penang hawker food. Because after Googling around I only found a few food bloggers who mentioned this place. Well I think they really deserve more.
I hate to admit this, but Ngau Kee’s beef noodles taste nicer compared to Penang’s beef koay teow.. especially the dried one. Really hou hou sek. The beef soup is thick and flavorful, and the minced meat is just awesome.
I look for tender and fresh meat, herbal thick and sweet soup in a good claypot of Bak Kut Teh. And Fong Keow doesn’t disappoint. Pork ribs were actually given, which made me a happier man lol.
