Batu Lanchang Market, Penang

If you wonder where is FoOd PaRaDiSe? Why there is no post at all since February? And no blog hopping as well. ^-^ Well, I am kinda tied up with my work load and also the overseas trip for weeks. I still remember that I owned a blog here and not forgetting to "snap snap snap" while I "eat eat eat". So there will be some overseas review in my coming up posts.
Thank you for visiting my sites from time to time. And thank you for leaving comments. I am back now and hope to share with all of you more mouthful and delicious foods.
For a start, I will start with a short introduction to Batu Lanchang foods in the morning session. All the while I thought that Batu Lanchang market only serves food during lunch session but I only realised that my info were wrong. As during one morning last year, I happened to stop by Batu Lanchang to do some work. I realised that there are people and cars around Batu Lanchang Food Court. Out of curiosity after I have finished my job. I went there and check it out. And I saw some shops (Opposite to the KFC side) was opened for breakfast.
So I decided to go there and try out the breakfast the following weekend. I been there few times now. And there are several stalls serving, dim sum, roti bakar, half boiled eggs, assorted pau, nasi lemak, wantan mee, curry mee and also chicken rice.
I did not manage to try all the foods but I have try the following foods:

Wantan Mee
I am not sure why, since after the first trip there, my gal always ordered the wantan noodles when we dine in there for breakfast. My gal was telling me that she loves the textures of the noodles. I tried once and the noodles got its springy textures. Whenever I had noodles, I love springy textures than the soft and lumpy types texture.
My daughter and hubby always had the noodles and gave me all the wantan whenever they had wantan mee. I always told them that they should ordered the noodles without wantan. ^-^
Curry Mee
There is one stall selling curry mee in the morning session. I saw some tables are having curry mee and the bowl of curry mee that they are having looks fiercely red. So I decided to give it a try.
When the bowl of curry mee arrived, you will see the curry mee is actually white in colour and came with a spoonful of special red chillies paste.
After mixing up with the chili pastes, you can see the fiery red bowl of curry mee. It has a very strong fragrant of curry flavours as you could see from the photos that there are lots of santan (coconut milk) in there. If you like the rich santan curry noodles flavours you might like to give this a try.
Roti Bakar
Although this is not the famous roti bakar in town but we enjoy having it. As when the roti bakar arrived in our tables, it is still very hot and crunchy. My gal loves that and we always ordered some to share among us.
If you are just like me and not sure that there are morning session of hawker foods in Batu Lanchang, perhaps you can drop by and try it out. But please be reminded that there are only several stalls available in the morning session. There will be more stalls opening during lunch hours.
