Breakfast Street Food @ Dannok

As lively as Dannok gets around 6PM till 8PM almost every night especially weekend, most of the time it’s a quiet town.

For breakfast, one will have a hard time trying to found a shop to eat in. However, if you don’t mind sitting by the road for your breakfast, then you will have plenty of option.

Quite a few stalls selling Koay Chap (粿汁), which is a bit different from what we normally get in Malaysia.  Koay Chap is a dish with a special type of noodle. The texture is also different and it’s doest taste a bit like koay teow, but not really so. They are not stingy with the ingredients at all which make it quite a filling bowl of noodle. 6.8/10

The pork leg rice @ RM4 looks really pale and uninteresting when it served, but it’s good. The meat is super tender, the gravy is nice and it just taste amazing! Eat it with their chili, it is just greatttt!! However, the vegetables taste bitter though. 7.5/10

Wah Meng Coffee Shop Koay Chap @ Penang

Wet market is always a good place to search for good food, and due to the fact that most stalls nearby wet market are not commercialize yet, most of these stalls are able to maintain the quality of their food for a long time.

Being said so, Air Itam wet market is also 1 of the most famous market in Penang, and also 1 of the most crowded one. The crowd here every morning is incredible, and with it located nearby to the entrance of Kek Lok Si temple doesn’t help too.

Many times I had heard about the Koay Chap at Air Itam market, and some had said the Koay Chap here are consider 1 of the best in Penang. Like most other , the ingredients include duck meat, coagulated pork blood, egg and innards. Although the ingredients are good, but I am not a huge fan of dark black soup Koay Chap, as I prefer this and this more. 7.0/10

Old Town Koay Chap @ Sungai Petani

Well well well, there is this 1 koay chap which is very famous in my hometown, but I never heard of it, neither I had the chance to eat it until recent time. Reason is, the operating time of the stall is absolutely out of the time I eat.

Well, firstly its only a small mobile stall, and the “ah pek” who sell it will ONLY slowly cycle it to it’s usual place at around 10 PM. It will then take around 20 minutes for him to set up the stall. However, the problem is, I was told that the “ah pek” only sell when he feels he want to, and there ain’t any indications on when is his off day or such.

Another problem is, it’s only a stall by the road side, so you can’t like say, wait at the coffee shop, order something to eat first while waiting for him and pray that he come. What you can do is, come at around 10.30 PM, if he is there, stopped and buy. If he is not there, then sorry, come another day.

HOWEVER, this will lead to another problem – waiting time. Just look at the picture above.  The crowd is usually at it’s peak at around 10.30 PM, and you will just have to stand and wait wait wait (usually around 30 minutes). The waiting time is not because the “ah pek” is working in slow motion, but rather because he do waste a lot of time doing nonsense which greatly slows down his speed. If you think you can come late to avoid the crowd, sorry to say that if you come after 11 PM, the chances of it sold out is very high.

Yes, you can come early (which I did), but if you are out of luck and the “ah pek” decided not to sell that day, then you have only yourself to be blame. I did come and waited there at around 9.50 PM, but the stall was no where to be seen. There was already 5 customer waiting there although the “ah pek” was not here yet. Luckily at around 10.10 PM, he was here. PHEW!

Since it’s only a mobile stall, all you can do is take away, and yes, for such a huge bowl, it only cost RM4.70! I opt for extra ingredient (as usual).
