Ipoh to Penang Food Crawl Part 4

Saturday, December 5, 2009

After our stop in Queensbay, we were heading to the Air Itam area to visit Kek Lok Si Temple. While on our way to the temple, a Penang friend had recommended us to stop by a restaurant nearby that area to savour some tasty Mee Goreng Mamak. So we decided to try the place out due to the recommendation. This place was situated next to a bank. I forgotten which bank is that since it's actually quite some time ago and my memory are failing me nowadays. ^Sob sob^. Nevertheless, I did snapped the picture of the name of the shop.

Since we saw people trying out their Mee Rebus as well, we ordered both Mee Goreng and Mee Rebus. 4 people and 2 plates of noodles. Other patrons must be thinking we were out of cash to share this 2 plates among 4 of us. What to do? We were practically eating non-stop since morning. Must practice moderation you know. Overall, I'll say there's basically nothing to shout about for their Mee Goreng. It was just mediocre but for their Mee Rebus, this noodles was slightly above average. (All this are based on my individual preference, others might not feel the same)

Finding a parking in Kek Lok Si Temple area was quite horrendous experience. Everywhere is PEOPLE and CAR! Lucky us, we managed to find a parking in a short time. How can we go Penang and never eat their Asam Laksa. We went for the famous Asam Laksa in Pasar Air Itam.

Famous Asam Laksa in Air Itam.

Shop owner was very busy preparing each and every bowl of yummy laksa.

While waiting, we had our cooling sugar cane. It's purely sugar cane without any additional sugar. I think it cost around RM1.20. Definitely value for money.

Yummy and tangy Asam Laksa. Slurrp slurrp. Full of fish meats and it's just RM2.70 per bowl.

Bon Appetit!
