A Food Resolve: Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul

Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul...nope I've not heard of it before this. But this was one of the places I frequently passed by during my trips to Penang island over the 4 years of my uni life. I was often intrigued by the scores of people who lined up at this particular stall that I made a resolve to check it out at least once before I graduated - and so I did with Adrian.

I was absolutely delighted at the huge bowl of cendol laden with coconut milk. YUMMY! This bowl doesn't come cheap though. I can't really remember the price but if I'm not mistaken, this costs about RM3. It was worth it.

The stall is located off Penang Road at Lebuh Keng Kwee...right beside Joo Hooi Cafe where you can sit and enjoy your cendol and other delicious hawker fare. The restaurant is quite small and very crowded. Be prepared to share tables with other patrons.You'll definitely have to brace yourself for it'll be cramped and hot. On the bright side, you'll have that cendol to keep you cool.

Joo Hooi cafe serves some delicious hawker fare. Adrian had the hor hee which he said tasted normal (and expensive) while I had the most delicious prawn mee I've ever had! Although this one doesn't come with large prawns, which makes you real happy and think that it's the best, the soup is to die for! Highly recommended. The patron (tourist with a SLR) whom we shared a table with, had laksa which looked really good. I would've liked to try that too! All in all, I would say that this was the best hawker fare I've had in Penang (in addition to the Fried Rice King...which I didn't blog about because I always finished eating the fried rice before I remembered to take some photos...always...every time). Glad I made that resolve.
