Penang Food Tour (FINAL Part) - Batu Lancang Market

Let's bring back the shine? Yeah, let's hope the new state government keeps their promises ...
FINAL post for Penang Food Tour April 2008. Phew, what a load off my chest. To satisfy FCOE's cravings for Batu Lancang's CCF, I just had to post this up ASAP. ;)
Refreshing sugar cane juice @ Stall No. 5
One important note, be sure to park your derriere ONLY in front of or nearby the stall selling drinks that you intend to order from. Else, you risk being forced to order from another proprietor. Remember this. Oh, while we're on the subject of drinks, do try this refreshing sugar cane juice, freshly grind(?)/grated(?)/squeezed(?) right before your eyes. Really takes the heat off from you.

No water added (except ice) RM1

The words of FCOE still rang in my ears; "MUST try the chee cheong fun, OK?!" However, what she failed to warn me was that there are TWO stalls selling CCF. Hmm. Incompetent guide. =P Had to make an emergency call to ensure we did not order from the wrong one ... thus ...

FCOE's favourite stall No. 50

I ordered 2 strips/blocks of her fav CCF from a very friendly looking uncle, at stall No. 50. He asked in Mandarin, or could be Hokkien whether I wanted them to be served 'opened up' or in 'cubes'. Hmm, funny question? But it seems some Penangites have them cut open and served. Weird, huh?

2 blocks/strips at RM1.60. What a steal ...

Tastewise? Sorry FCOE, my tastebuds not accustomed to Penang's version of CCF. But it was not bad. On par with the Kimberley Street's and Lorong Delima's, but Material Boy,being the CCF connoiseur that he is, commented on Delima still retaining the trophy in his books. Oh well, let's move on to familiar territory .....

Chinese style Pasembor with Jelly Fish (RM3)

One of my all-time fav Pasembor on the island, albeit a Chinese version, the Batu Lancang Pasembor really carved a name for itself. Throngs of ppl ordered from this stall No. 8, and you may have to brave the wait (though no more than 20 minutes). But this time around, it was slightly spicier than usual, which was fine with me.

Delicious Char Kuey Teow (RM3)

Still craving for more, as this was the last meal for this trip, I knew I have to satisfy my lust for Char KueyTeow, my top most favourite choice when it comes to Penang food. There are at least 2 stalls selling this, but I stood by FCOE's recommendation and my own previous experience and ordered one with everything (clams, egg and prawns) from stall No. 28, right beside Nyonya kuih stall. As expected, beyond compare (when compared with Ipoh's version). Smoky flavour sipping through the golden bits of eggs enveloping the smooth rice noodle, springy medium sized prawns, and juicy cockles. With Chinese waxed sausages to boast. And it was spicy! Extremely up my alley.... Oh yeah ...

Location : Batu Lancang Market. Somewhere near Jelutong area. At Jalan Lintang, Batu Lancang. Specifically? From Jalan Gelugor, you will pass by USM Batu Uban gate on your left. Go straight for around 5 minutes, passing a few traffic lights, until you come to a Shell petrol station on your left. There will be a fork after the station. Take the right path (slightly up hill) to Jelutong. Go straight some more, and take the first turning on the left. You will come to a 2 way road, with houses on both sides. Go til the end to a T junction,and turn right. The market and the food court is to your immediate left. There is a large parking lot in front of the market.
