I love Penang Hawker Food - Continue again..

Wednesday, January 03, 2007


Went to George Town, heading Joo Hooi Cafe at Penang Rd (near Komtar building). This is my second visit to Joo Hooi Cafe for the same food, assam laksa and cendol!



This is another assam laksa that I would recommend, it's nice. Normally assam laksa do cook with pineapple but this assam laksa stall give additional fresh pineapple when serving. If you're in George Town and you want a nice assam laksa, give it a try. It taste more sour compare to Kek Lok Si assam laksa, and Kek Lok Si assam laksa has more fish flake and sweeter due to more prawn paste.


Cendol is another "must order" item, it has a lot of cendol and red beans. Taste less sweet compare to Indian cendol in Klang Valley. Which is good, Chinese prefer "kurang manis". The stall located outside the restaurant named as Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul and Ice Kacang, order to eat in restaurant is possible.

I believe it really famous, look at the crowd, I can't approach closer to take a better shot.
