Cari Makan @ Penang - CKT and CCF

You must be wondering what is CKT and CCF ? CKT is Char Keoy Teow (fried noodles with eggs and cockles ) and CCF is Chee Cheong Fun (Rice thick noodles rolls with prawn paste)

These are two popular food that you can get almost everywhere in Penang island. I know my friend Klang Kia is going to drool over these two food. He told me to think of him crying when I ate CKT and CCF. Sorry dude, i was not able to pack the food back from Penang but i managed to capture the image with my Nikon D70.

This is a Chinese Style CKT that you can find it @ Lai Lai food court Ayer Itam on the way to Penang hill. The price is reasonable but the taste is so so only. Taste a bit salty.

I was surprised when this CKT was served. It was not dry, it came with the sauce. This is a Malay style of CKT @ the base of Penang Hill, a small restaurant besides the cable car station. The taste was okay but it's really different from the normal CKT we had.

You can find this CCF @ BT Food court, Burmah Road, two blocks away from Tune Hotel, just besides the Wesley Methodists Church. The CCF is not as great as the one in New World Park. The sauce was a bit sweeter.

Anyway, the CKT and CCF were not listed in any Food brochure that prepared by the Tourism board of Penang... Yup! Penang Tourism Board has come out a list of Penang food and printed its location and time in a brochure that you could get it from any tourist information center. Just get one and you could go and cari cari makan @ Penang.
