I’m back! Yes, I was away in Penang (Malaysia) and Lombok (Indonesia) for a well-deserved break. That was why my weekly posts have been missing. Now that I am back from my holiday in paradise which all seemed so short, I will try my best to get back to my routine of writing and giving you highlights of my great finds.
PENANG! Well well, if you've read highlights about Penang prior to travelling there, you know food is the ultimate highlight. Of course eating is not the only thing to do here. There are so much more to see here but you have to know that eating is almost like a hobby for most Penangites.
Toasted bread with soft boiled eggs
So my advice for your arrival at the Penang International Airport, go to Joo Leong Cafe for breakfast or dinner or even supper to satisfy your hunger after a tiring flight and surplus of plane food. This cafe is only about 5 minutes from the airport, on your way to town.
A good dunk in the eggs
This cafe is known for it's breakfast of toasted bread with butter and soft boiled eggs. I have my toast topped with granulated sugar, soft boiled eggs with ground white pepper and light soy sauce, and a Milo to drink. It's an ultimate breakfast combo.
If you arrive later in the evening and will be missing out on this breakfast, don't worry. They are open for dinner serving their famous noodle soup or rice porridge with freshly caught fish and seafood. I've been coming here for years. Please also order satay from the stall at the entrance. This satay served with peanut sauce will be a great way to open up your tastebuds for more deliciousness that will come your way while in Penang.
