Random eats, Penang

Just a rojak of the extra stuff we ate in between meal times in Penang..
Char Siew Soh ( BBQ pork puff) from Wong Kok Restaurant in Queensbay Mall...I first tried this from their main branch in Komtar. Really delicious but must eat it hot in order to savour this tasty snack. Not to be mistaken for Wong Kok Char Chan Teng in KL, you cant get these babies there...
BBQ chicken wings at Gurney Drive.. Was told by a penangite that this hawker (located in the middle of Gurney Drive, corner shop, not where the main hawkers are) serves one of the best BBQ chicken wings. Thought this was just ok, the wings were not juicy enough to tempt me..
Crepe Cottage at Gurney Drive..
Walked pass it the first night I was there and it was extremely crowded. Food must be good, so we popped by after dinner for dessert the next day. Serves western food and lots of crepes (and some other dessert). We were there around 10:30pm, we only got our first order of warm apple crepe with ice-cream around 11:45pm.It was ok, 2 huge scoops of vanila ice cream wrapped by crepe and topped with warm apple (cooked in cinnamon and honey). Not fantastic though and definitely not worth the wait..Now I know why it's so crowded. Coz everyone's waiting :-(. We cancelled our remaining orders.
Gee Hiang biscuits..
I must come here for the beh teh saw (sweet biscuits with winter gourd and malt sugar filling). Lovely stuff. But for tau sar peah (salty biscuits with bean filling), I'll buy from Him Heang...

Wow that's a long wait for your crepes! It can't possibly take that long to prepare one.

I wouldn't mind a food trip. :-)
