Kedai Kopi Swee Kong @ Solok Moulmein, Penang

I have been busy for the past few days but still try my best to squeeze in some time to do some blogging. ^-^ And today, I choose to blog about
Kedai Kopi Swee Kong @ Pulau Tikus. The actual location is @ Solok Moulmein. Directly opposite the Police Station. This blog consists of two visits, one during breakfast time and the other during late lunch.
I found the way the boss prepare the Apom is so interesting. As the way, he can quickly move the pot from one charcoal stove to another with fast speed using one hand. I think for me, I have to use both hands and not with that kind of speed. ^-^
Hubby captured some of the photos from the stall as following:
The boss in action.

I usually love the crispy type of apom like the one that sell in Air Itam. But this one is a bit different. It is very crispy at the edge of the apom and soft in the interior. And it tastes great when serves hot. And we ordered twice from the owner as my gal loves it very much.

Wantan Mee
When I entered the shop, I saw the stall owner of the wantan mee is so busy and most of the table order this. And since my gal wants some wantan mee, hubby ordered one for her. She comments that the wantan mee tastes nice and she loves the wantan mee textures.
Hokkien Mee
I opt for the hokkien mee. The hokkien mee tastes not bad.
Ban Chang Kueh
This is the second visit to this shop and hubby told me that the ban chang kueh is very famous there. So he went and ordered. Then the stall owner told hubby, you have to prepared to wait as there are so many ordered. And there are lots of people standing on the road site and some wait inside their car for this ban chang kueh.
After hubby finished his late lunch, he went to the stall and wait. He still have to wait for very long time. However, my gal and I just sitting inside the coffee shop had our late lunch. ^-^
The Ban Chang kueh is very crispy and thin textures and it has many peanut fillings in there and hubby ordered one with egg. It tastes delicious when it serves hot.
Hokkien Char
Char Tua Pan
The hokkien char and the char tua pan came from the same stall and it tastes very delicious as the "wok hei" is there. We are thinking to order another plate but at last we decided not to as we still have the ban chang kueh. ^-^
I am not too sure whether you will get the thick laksa soup when you order it in the normal hour. As when I start digging this, I told hubby that this laksa stall have a very thick and strong soup base. Hubby agreed with me when he savour some. Then I just realise that the laksa that I had was the last bowl. ^-^ As I overheard one of the customers sat next to our table want to order the laksa, he was told that it all sold out. So I guess I am quite lucky. ^-^

I like the Wan Ton Mee, but never tried the ban chang kuih before. The ban chang kuih at Bayan Baru market is very good!

Juggling the Apom or Tai Kow Meen or even the Claypot rice is a sight to behold maybe somewhat akin to business working on the cashflow!
