Sister's Char Koay Teow @ Macalister Road, Penang

Whenever there are visitors coming to Penang, one of the hawker delicacies that they wanted to try is "Char Koay Teow". As you can always see in some other state in Malaysia that they served "Penang Char Koay Teow". So I think "Char Koay Teow" is a must try foods for all the visitors.
Today, I am about to share with you is one of the popular char koay teow in Penang. You must have heard "Sister's Char Koay Teow" before right? Well, this is the CKT that I am about to blog for today.
This CKT stall is locate in Lam Heng Cafe, No. 185, Macalister Road, Penang. It is just opposite of Loh Guan Lye Specialist Centre.
How do you classify the best CKT? I guessed everyone in their heart/mind have their own version of best CKT. As some like it wet and some like it dry. However, I prefer my CKT in dry version. ^-^ And with some chilies to bring out the fragrant of the CKT.
One thing in mind that you have to remember while dining in here. Is to prepare to wait. Even though that we went there very early in the morning. I still have to wait for very long. As I think the helper mixed up my order and gave it to some one who came later than me. So hubby went and complaint about it. After a long wait I get to savour the

Popular Sister's Char Koay Teow
I can differentiate the different of sister's char koay teow and others as the CKT is top with some crab meat. I think this is one of their "attraction" and also "specialties".
From the photos, you cannot see any traces of chilies in there. But it is cooked with chilies and it is quite spicy for some. You can always ask for less chilies if you cannot take too spicy foods.
Oh Kuih
While waiting for CKT, hubby order some Oh Kuih to try.
Braised Chicken Feet
Apart from the oh Kuih, hubby also ordered braised chicken feet to try. As the oh kuih and the braised chicken feet are offer by the same stall owner.
From I first spotted of the braised chicken feet, I am telling myself that it looks so dark and must be very salty. But it turns out to be wrong. It was sweet instead. The chicken feet is not very tender. As it is have the springy textures there. But I enjoyed the braised mushroom. It is very juicy and full of flavor in it.

Lor Mee
Hubby opt for the lor mee as he is not CKT fans. He loves noodles rather than koay teow. Hubby commented that the lor mee is not bad.
Apart from the above foods, you can also opt for some steamed bun and dim sum which sold in front of the shop. Where I saw may people stop by to take away to work.
