Kedai Kopi New Cathay @ Pulau Tikus, Penang

I am sure this is the place where it is not a stranger to anybody in Penang. As this coffee shop serves nice and varieties foods. We tend to have difficulty to get a seat no matter whether you go during weekdays or weekend. It is usually full house. Normally we will go there during breakfast in the weekend but during one weekday whereby hubby taking day off, we decide to go there and check out whether there are as many patrons as always.
So one weekday, we arrived Kedai Kopi New Cathay around 8.10am and we still mange to get table for two. So hubby went around and order the foods and mind you, he is so hungry that day and he order a lot. hahahhahaa......
Mee Jawa
Hubby opts for the stir fry version of mee jawa. And we found out that the way the stall owner add in the egg into the mee jawa is something different. Every piece of the noodles is cover with egg. Hubby comments that the noodles are not bad.

Chai Koay
Hubby cannot wait any longer and bought some chai kuih and kuih from the kuih stall. The chai koay being serves there are not too bad. The skin and fillings of the chai koay are ok.
Kuih
I am not really a fans of nyonya kuih. But I do take it from time to time. I am not sure when, I started to dislike the kuih that coat with coconut. But hubby insist me to try and told me that it tastes nice. As an adventure person, I will always try my best to try. Overall, not too bad.


Hokkien Mee
Both of us share this hokkien mee. And this bowl of hokkien mee is quite nice. Have a nice aroma.


Wantan Mee
This is one of my gal favourites. I remember when she last visited this cafe, she loves it so much. Hubby loves the springy textures of the wantan mee and he told me that it is worth the waiting time. lol

Koay Chap
This is actually my order of koay chap. I like to try different stall of koay chap. Each stall has it own aroma and flavour. And the textures of the koay chap varies too. Overall, I found that the koay chap here are not bad. If you don't like the coriander, then you have to ask the stall owner not to put as it will immersed into the koay chap soup base.
