Penang Fall 2012: Breakfast Along Jalan Burmah


On the second morning in Penang, we explored along Jalan Burmah in the neighbourhood for breakfast.

We settled at a coffee shop with hawker stalls. I had a dry curry noodle with cuttle fish, cockles, tofu puff and pork blood. I left the pork blood behind as I do not eat pork blood.

003

Ben had “Lum Mee” with prawns.

001

Iced coffee to go with the noodles. Come to think of it, I only had iced drink in Malaysia. I always have hot drink in Vancouver, even in summer.

The above came to RM10 (CAD3.50).

We continued to explore the neighbourhood and came across a coffee shop that Ben’s cousin recommended to us when they dropped us back to the hotel yesterday night.

So, we decided to share another plate of noodle. It’s Mee Goreng (fried noodle) Indian style. It was sweet and sour and loaded with cuttle fish, tofu and potatoes. The Mee Goreng with iced coffee was RM6.40 (CAD2.20).

005

We came across a Burmese stupa on our way to Gurney Drive, which is within walking distance.

View of Gurney Drive in the morning. At night, the drive is lined with hawkers. Too bad we do not have time to explore it at night as we only have another full day here.

On the way back to the hotel, we came across a 200 year old church.
