We drove around Gurney area in search for food and finally stumbled upon Northan Beach Cafe.
The car park was the reason we stopped by, it was all huge and full of cars, on top of that, most cars were registered in Penang, what did it say? This place is fairly popular among the locals.!!;-)
Despite the number of stalls, I believe sea view is the major attraction of Northern. The place was cramped and we were lucky enough to have a table that's facing the sea. BIL's nose is a sharp receptor, this is a lovely snack ordered by him, deep fried tofu stuffed with salted fish, yummy!While everyone is checking out the Penang delicacy, I suddenly had the urge to try this bakuteh. Must be curious why Penang Bakuteh and not Klang!? ;-PBeef noodle was for Moon, she somehow prefers the one from New Lane (next to Sunway Hotel), me too. FYI, this is no ordinary Char Koay Teow! It's fried with duck's egg but tasted quite ordinary though. BIL's remark is "The New Lane's one is better!" ( New Lane again ;-p) I think Penangites are very lucky coz the "hor hor chiak" grilled chicken wings are always available at almost every hawker food center. Grilled parrot fish (RM28) was new but not something I'd appreciate! the marinade was not done long enough. Texture of the fish is quite similar to talapia which is quite limp and tasteless. Definitely not my type of food! Overall, as you can see, the word "New Lane" has been repeated so many times, needless to say, New Lane is still better in term of taste. Nonetheless, the dining ambiance here is certainly an aswesome one!
