How I wonder what you are
If you want to cry or sigh

If you ever stray afar

A1 Bak Chang

A view of the stall from the front. This is the stall which is famous in Penang for its "bak chang" and has been featured on Astro before. Located in Burmah Road, this stall is the "A1 Bak Chang" which I would like to introduce to you guys out there. Their business hours are from 2.30pm-10.30p.m. everyday and is closed during the weekend. Of course, due to their popularity, their business is booming even on an everyday basis where their products are selling like hot cakes...which is literally true, as they steam their "chang" in the steamers. Thus, needless to say, during the "Tuen Ng" festival, which falls on the 5th day of the 5th month in the Lunar calendar, is the "bak chang" festival, customers need to place their orders for the highly demanded "chang" at least a fortnight ahead. So, if you happen to go to Penang, do not forget to pay this particular stall a visit;)

The stall is famous for its "bak chang" and all the food items even on normal days.This is the menu at the van and also the price list. The stall just opened at the time we arrived.

Old shops

Used to be a coffeeshop as well, those typical cowboy-bar-type with those mini doors where you push them in. Now, in its place is a pawn shop

Famous Penang Road Teochew Cendol

This is the Famous Penang Road Teochew Cendol, if you go to Penang, you'd should pay this stall a visit, located somewhere in an alley around Penang road. For more information about this cendol, go to their website here: http://www.penangnet.com/chendul/ (yeah, they have a website too:)

True to its name and reputation, there were a lot of people patronising the stall. At the same time, this hot weather is enough to get anyone running to grab something cool8-) Yeah...even when they need to stand under the crammed and shaded stall...

Of course, we ordered the famous cendol and it was cool and refreshing for the hot weather:)
About its quality, judging from the pictures above of the stall, need I say more?:p

This is a bowl of Assam Laksa ordered from one of the hawkers in the shop. We wanted to order the popiah and lobak which is also in the shop but unfortunately, the stall was closed for that particular day. Sighh...
The assam laksa is truly good...there were a lot of tourists in the particular coffee shop as well, I kinda forgot the name of the shop but it's located just next to the famous cendol stall...along Penang Road..I suppose it's kinda hard to miss it;) As I was saying, there were a lot of tourists, especially from Singapore and they all ordered the laksa as well...I must say the aroma from this bowl of laksa is alluring to everyone, so just give it a try the next time you are there:)
