We also ordered Char Koay Teow from a neighbouring stall but unfortunately it turned out forgettable- bitter and charred. :(
Dazzled by this surprising find, we didn't take note of the name of the stall or street. Well I guess part of travelling is the delight of discovering things!
Joo Hooi Café is small and cramped but always bustling and crowded. With time-tested furniture and paint peeling off its walls, one can only imagine the many happy meals and memoories had in its premise through the decades.
Besides the laksa, we practically tried every other stall in this kopitiam. Lor Bak! Hae Mee! Popiah! Kueh Pie Tee! Moohehe.
We visited the Clans Jetty and enjoyed the sea breeze, and Gurney for some shopping and makan (lots of options at the open-air food street but nothing really stood out from what we tried. Ok, maybe except the wanton mee). Oh and foot massages were pretty well-priced so we had daily foot massages! With this kind of eating and daily massages, I need to only drink and listen to Mozart to become fine-marbled wagyu. Moohehe.
Chew On This: Penang is huge and we only managed to explore Georgetown and a little bit of Gurney Drive. There are also fruit farms, beaches and many more places in Penang to explore!
