The story of “The next phase + Penang food safari + May Top 12”
Assalamualaikum all. I’m back in Shah Alam. Back to neverending cycle of shooting, editing, designing, networking & meeting. A brief lull in my activities will be met by a full force schedule consisting of corporate shoots, studio shoots, outdoor family portraitures, weddings, teaching assignments & model shoots. No more holidays until end of July (where an assignment could lead to a mini holiday 🙂 ).
I love Penang. Apart from it being the hometown of my future wife, Penang can satisfy my passion in professional eating (Hahahahaha!). The best of everything can be found here. Even way before I met my gf, I’ve come to Penang and totally love the food offered here. From Roti canai daging @ Cherry, Nasi Kandar (everywhere is good), Kari Ikan @ Seafood restaurant at LKIM Jetty, Roadside passembor, Cendol, Mee Udang etc etc. As my friend Black says… “You will be fat if you lived here”.
My 6th time being in Penang brought me to these killer food (not that they literally kill you..duh)
Nasi Kandar Line Clear. One of the best. Small stall located between buildings in Downtown Penang. Near Chowrasta Market & Lebuh Campbell. I took the fried chicken, 2 lady fingers, 1 portion of vegi & the famous kuah campur (mixed gravy from almost all the offerings). RM5.70 + 20cent for the plain iced water.
The best Maggi Goreng I’ve ever tasted, Ever! Restoran Khaleel is located at the famous Gurney Drive by the sea. You can really taste the curry powder, and they fry it nicely (no burned part like most mamak would do). I think they also put in small tiny prawns.
The nasi kandar looks good too, with variety of lauk pauk.
At the famous Esplanade (Padang Kota Lama), these can be found
The famous Mee Sotong. Fried Mee topped with Sambal sotong. Rm3.50 for a basic meal up to Rm5 for the extra version. The mee is nicely done. Thick and savoury. The sambal sotong is also very rich, a bit spicy bot not too hot. It is quite sweet and the sotong is cut small. Easy to digest.
Mr Hameed in action.
This is us. The next phase is obvious. When someone great comes into your life and motivates you to work hard, be a better person, fall in love (madly) supports you through thick and thin, you know what to do. You say the 3 sacred words. “I Love You”
