Famous Ah Leng Char Koay Teow @ Jalan Dato Keramat, Penang.

There are too many foods in Penang that visitor's would like to taste. And one of the hawker foods, they usually would like to taste is the Char Koay Teow. As if you visited some part of Malaysia, you will always saw that the hawker or restaurant there wrote "Penang Char Koay Teow" or "Si Ham Koay Teow" (means Koay Teow with clams).
I have tried many char koay teow stalls in Penang. But I never tried Ah Leng Char Koay Teow stall before. The reason behind this is because we have a difficulty to get a car park. So during one outing back in August 2009, hubby and I went "dating breakfast" again since my gal was at school. hahhahahhaaa..........
I remembered that we went there around 9am and it is on one weekday. It seems like "Ah Leng Char Koay teow" just started their business of the day. So hubby went and order two plates of koay teow special. As I told hubby that I must try the mantis prawn and prawn char koay teow as it is the very "popular".
Char Koay Teow with prawn, mantis prawn and clams
Wah.... when the chef is busy cooking the char koay teow, I already cannot resist the aroma. If you like dry version of the chr koay teow, then you will definitely love this. But I found that the serve of koay teow is too small. hahhahaha...... but there are big prawns and mantis prawns. Hubby found that it is quite spicy for him and I am sure that my gal cannot take this plate of CKT as it would be too spicy for her.
***** A piece of advise to those who cannot take spicy foods, please let the chef know you just need a little spiciness when you placed your order. *****
Closed up of mantis prawn and prawn
Both mantis prawn and prawn are very fresh. I have more prawn and mantis prawn for my char koay teow as hubby gave some to me as you know..... I love prawns very much....... lol
Closed up of prawn
As I mentioned earlier that the koay teow's serve is quite small, so cannot filled up my hubby tummy. So he saw a stall there selling Hokkien Mee. So he went and order one for himself.
Hokkien Mee
The hokkien mee is quite nice. And quite spicy too. But we love the soup base and also the black soy sauce pork added in the hokkien mee. It is very tender and delicious. I saw the table next to us went and ordered extra black soy sauce pork in their hokkien mee. So I guess, this is one of the "popular" side dish to add-on.
Apart from the hokkien mee stall, there are also economy rice stall that are operating when we dine in there. Perhaps in the afternoon, there will be more choices.
