Kompleks Gerai Makanan Batu Lancang, Penang

Ryan was our guide for this trip, we'll get to taste different types of Penang food as it's more of a nostalgic trip for him..
We popped by Kompleks Gerai Makanan Batu Lancang, a place that brings back fond memories for Ryan as his grandma used to bring him here when he was a kid.. There were so many stalls, I didnt even know where to start, so we just followed Ryan's lead..
We went straight to his 'god mother's' mee goreng stall..
It's quite tasty; the noodles are not too soggy, chunks of potatoes and fried dough (balls?) were generously fried with the noodles. But I still stand firm to my fave mee goreng stall at bangkok road..hehe
Ryan got us some Chinese Pasembur (the only chinese pasembur in that food court, located next to Shariff Nasi Kandar)..I find this delicious as the ingredients gels very well together. Liked how the freshly sliced vegetables soaked in the sweet spicy sauce; the very light, crispy crackers giving the pasembur some crunch; the random taufoo pieces that complements the rest of the ingredients.
Ryan's first dose of prawn paste chee cheong fun..It's either you love it or hate it. I liked it. Lily dont. She finds the prawn paste pungent and only took one piece...hehe
Kompleks Gerai Makanan Batu Lancang is located next to Pasar & Balai Batu Lancang (Wet Market), Jalan Lintang, Batu Lancang, Penang.

Somehow I read "Chinese Pasembur" as "Cheese Pasembur"... and wondered what the heck that was! :P

It's always great to have a local foodguide, no? :)
