Hawker Food @ Padang Brown, Penang

I guess Padang Brown is no longer the stranger to anyone in Penang. During one outing, we dropped by Padang Brown around 2pm. And we were lucky that we went there earlier. As after few minutes, it was packed with people every where. ^-^
We were seated in front of the Poh Piah stall. And his business is awesome. You will see him non-stop preparing the poh piah. We waited for sometime before the poh piah is being served.
Poh Piah
I am not the fans of poh piah as I prefer Spring Roll. However, hubby do enjoy having poh piah. I find the poh piah is quite nice. As it is not watery. As I dont really enjoy watery type of poh piah. ^-^

Hokkien Mee
This bowl of hokkien mee is for my gal. She fall in loves with hokkien mee nowadays. I guess, she is addicted to hokkien mee. ^-^ So most of the time she will opt for hokkien mee if there is any stall selling it. It's good too, so I have more hokkien mee posts. lol
She found that this hokkien mee is a bit too spicy for her though. But she still try her best to finish it. I tested some of the soup base and it tasted ok.
Char Koay Teow
I feel like having char koay teow, so hubby order this for me. I found that the char koay teow is just so - so for my liking.

Penang Laksa
Hubby feel like having some laksa..... so he ordered himself one bowl of laksa...... And hubby comments that the laksa is ok.
Furthermore, we also ordered:
Pan Fry Bean curd (Tau Kua)
This is totally different beancurd (tau kua) from what we usually ordered. This is not deep fried. It is pan fry. So you can see that the colour is slightly whiter. When it is being served, hubby and I think that this must be tasted awful. But, after we tried it with some chili pastes, it tastes something different. And we quite enjoy it. If you like the pure bean curd flavour, you will love this dish.
Hubby is wanting to try their lok - lok but I stopped him. I told him that we will come back some other days to try on their lok - lok only. So we will plan another trip back just for lok - lok. ^-^ And there are also other foods to try such as yong tau foo............. I am sure that there are something for you in Padang Brown.

J2Kfm said...

one of the reason i dun like Penang's popiah is that they are mostly watery, drowned in the gravy. or soup. or whatever.

but this one looks good. and come highly recommended as well, from most reviews. will try them when the time comes ...

i just brought my KL friend there on 3rd may. How bad luck are they as majority of the tasty hawker stall do not open on Sunday! So i have no choice to bring them there...lol. i found this poh piah has a fresh taste of seafood (crab) from the gravy. Taste good.

I used to eat the popiah here since I was a kid. While it is still quite good, it was far better in those days where real crab meat was used instead of crab sticks

buzzingbee said...

ya the poh piah here is not bad.
