Others near Heritage Area: 1. Kopi Cine (all of them yummy — S especially loved the steamed ginger and pear cake while I went mad for the lemon cheesecake) and have decided that the best way to end a long day in Penang is with a gula melaka ice cream sundae (served with homemade banana cake). 2. Ng Kee Cake Shop (7-C People’s Court, off Campbell Street / No 61, Cintra Street, Tel: 04 2612229) for the best pepper cookies we’ve had in ages. And we made the trek to a fabulous old fashioned spice mill (No 12, Lebuh China) to pick up several packets of freshly ground and fabulously aromatic spices. 3. Teik Seng, dig into a serving of twice-fried belly pork. (it’s moved just a few doors down to No 18-20 Lebuh Carnavon). In addition to the amazing double-cooked pork, we had a steamed pomfret and some kangkong cooked with prawns and sambal. All super-duper slurpilicious! I also enjoyed the homemade chin chow (grass jelly drink) that we had with our meal. 4. Khoon Hiang Cafe Our other best meal was a morning plate of char kway teow at Khoon Hiang Cafe, at the corner of Jalan Dunlop and Jalan Dato Keramat. The stall is called Ah Leng Char Koay Teow and it serves one of the tastiest and most interesting versions of char kway teow that S and I have ever had. It was different from both the eggy, sweet black version common in Singapore and the dry version most commonly referred to as “Penang Char Kway Teow”. This had a slightly spicy, sour taste, as well as a slightly “wet” texture that reminded S very much of Pad Thai. 5. Toh Soon Cafe Another edible goodie worth travelling for is the coffee at the Toh Soon Cafe, hidden in the lane next to No 194, Lebuh Campbell. This crowded little cafe makes some of the best Malaysian style coffee I’ve ever had. S and I stopped in for an ice coffee and were immediately hooked. We’re now big fans of this tiny and, from what I have been told, super popular coffee shop.
