Penang Trip - DAY 2

Our plan to Escape Park unacheivable due to the weather. It rained heavily, non-stop for the whole day. We couldn't do anything with this kind of weather. So, we came out with Plan B, a makan-makan trip. We had our breakfast at Chew Chuen Dim Sum, the biggest chain dim sum outlet at Butterworth. What really surprised me was it rained heavily but still there're a lot of customers. What I heard from Teik Hong, a Penangite - it's always crowded especially during the weekends. There're many varieties of dim sum to choose from. We spent about RM 24.00 for 4 persons. That was totally cheap and reasonable. I highly recommend this place for those dim sum lovers. 

We had our lunch at Ang Hoay Lor Restaurant, Penang. This place is highly recommended for their special Hokkien dishes. We ordered all their famous dishes which cost us approximately RM70. There is a MUST try dish which is their signature dish, Bak Kee Soup. It is a simple soup with pork slices that have been coated with tapioca flour and some veges.

After lunch, we decided to take a break for our tummies. We visited Penang Hill.

After the visit, we continued with our makan-makan trip. We went to Padang Brown  a.k.a Padang Dato Keramat Hawker Centre which is one of the older hawker centres in George Town, Penang. The seafood popiah in Padang Brown is one of best popiahs in Penang as the popiah includes real crab meat as part of the ingredients.

Besides, this hawker centre is also famous for lok-lok, pasembur, yong tau fu and char koay teow. Their lok-lok looks quite similar to satay celup in Melaka. Compared to satay celup which is dipping raw foods into hot peanut sauce, this is dipping into hot boiled water. You can choose a variety of sauces once the food is cooked. Lok lok is the best choice for us to keep us warm as the weather was too cold

It was late evening and to avoid the traffic jam, we went to Queensbay Mall for shopping. Guess what? We were still caught in the traffic jam! It took us almost  2 hours to reach Butterworth! We had our late dinner (seafood) at 323 Seafood Restaurant, Butterworth, Penang.
