The hub asked me to arrange a dinner with mum tonight, early celebration for mum's bday as we will be away on a company event this weekend. 🎂🎂
He suggested that we go try this out. Mum's first reaction? Penang from hotel? Nice meh? 😆😆For a native penangite, it is very common to feel skeptical and have this kind of reaction as it's very hard to taste good Penang food outside of Penang itself.
Despite that, we decided to give it a try and glad we did! 😉
Extended till 31 Aug!
The spread were quite a lot. Here's the mini Ang ku kueh. So cute hor
This is a Penang specialty "che hu" 鲜鱼. A first seeing this in Singapore. 😉😋
Dried mee siam
The hub's first course 😋
Wow "best buffet" awarded by Wine & Dine Singapore
Penang Hokkien Mee aka prawn noodles. This gotta be the best out of the lot that makes the mark on its authenticity. 😋😋😋👍
The Penang buffet won't be complete without Penang Laksa! Ok this didn't really look like the normal laksa as I went a little overboard over the 虾膏. Free flow mah haha 😆😆😆
Verdict: commendable, 8.5/10 on authenticity 👍👍😋
Close up on the Penang laksa 😋😋 yummy gravy, bottoms up!!
Ban Jiang Kueh 馒煎糕 wow this is really good! So thin and crisp! 😋😋😋👍
The main ingredients of Ban Chang Kueh 😋😋👍
And the mini nyonya kueh.. Check out how small the Ang Ku Kueh was! 😆
Penang Chee Cheong Fun.. Another dish which my hub and @chloeyingen could not appreciate, anything with 虾膏is a big no no for them. For @shopaholicdeb and I, the more 虾膏the merrier lol 😆😆😋
"Ju Hu Eng Cai"… So so only 😁
Nyonya Kueh spokesperson 😆😆
@chloeyingen brought out her new baby out to play… Say Cheese 😆😁
Okay I know it's not my birthday, but can't resist buying this. Anyway, I'm sure mum wouldn't mind it haha 😆😆
See.. Mum still looked very happy 😉😘
Happy birthday in advance Mum! 😘🎂 #happybirthday #birthdaycake
