Yesterday we went to Penang with and  Agnes and Cecilia. Due
to the time factor and weather, we managed to visit only three places
from our list.The first place was the Penang Road Famous Teochew

The stall just started operating when we were there at about 10.15
am. It operates daily from 10.00 am to 7pm. The stall is located
just opposite the Penang Road police station.
We ordered four bowls of chendul and were to eat there, but the
Indonesian girl led us to a small shop just about twenty feets away
from the stall.  There layed a few tables and chairs for their guests
only, there were pictures of famous artists who  visited this stall,
the certificates of best food in Penang and etc.

We found that the taste is the same as few years ago when we visited
this stall but they have reduce the ingredients.

Next, we went to look for Ghee Hiang Manufacturing Co, (A harita
ge of over 150 years) which is famous for its Sesame oil,Tau Sar Pne
ah, Beh Teh Saw, Hneoh Pneah and etc.,we missed the factory at
Macalister Road, anyway manage to find the small outlet on Burma
Road. I bought only small Hneoh Pneah which the fillings are made
of brown sugar ,different from the normal Tau Sar Pneah, not very
sweet but has the different kind of taste.

From Ghee Hiang outlet we went to Jalan Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim to
locate Eaton Kuih Centre. This kuih centre is famous for its Ang
Koo, Nasi Kunyit with Chicken Curry,and Glutinous Rice. Its also
very popular shop for baby full-moon packages. They are cheap
and convenient.
The main office is at 110 or 139-M, Jalan Tan Sei Teh Ewe Lim,
11600, Penang.
Tel: 04-6577223, 6588097, 2828355
Operates from 7.30 am to 5pm daily except on Sunday opens
unitl 3pm only.

We managed to buy only some Ang Koo bacause the Nasi
Kunit with Chicken curry and glutinous rice were all sold

This was not a satisfactory Penang trip, we promised ourselves that
we will go again very soon with proper information and pray for
good weather .
