It started with a gathering at Traders hotel. We had our attendance :) To my suprise, the event consist of 8 bloggers and around 10 HungryGoWhere Malaysia apps users, everyone was ready with big camera, small camera, and also umbrella, as the weather in Penang was rainy.

Our first stop is the Prawn Fritters at Tan Jetty.
This is the shops sign board, easily can be spotted. This little shop actually served 3 types of delicious fritters namely Loh Bak (Pork Roll), Prawn Fritters and Bean Curd Fritters.

The boss of the stall was frying the "ho liao" prawn fritters. * "ho liao" means delicious. Prawn Fritters - RM0.90/pc

This is the prawn part of the fritters, just dip it into the sauce provided (homemade chili sauce which consisted of blended red chilies, lime juice, sugar and salt) and its super yummy!

Then we went to the second shop for our breakfast, I Mum Mum pan mee, hidden below a government flat at Macallum streets. This shop serves Dry Pan Mee, Pan Mee Soup, Crispy Pork Pan Mee and Spicy Pan Mee.
I ordered their signature dish, Crispy Pork Pan Mee – RM4.30(Small), RM4.80(Big). The pork slices were succulent with a taste of sweetness. Yummy ! It serves with soup also (dry pan mee).

As u can see from the picture, the pan mee really yummy!

We were so full'ed, but excited, because the next stop was pulau Aman! (need to go there thru Batu Kawan - Penang mainland area then take ferry to reach the small island)

Arrived pulau Aman!

After went into the floating restaurant, the first thing we saw is the prawn! plenty of them for sell.

This is Mee Udang Goreng.

I ordered this, Mee Udang Kuah. The taste not bad.

This is Nasi Goreng Udang.

Actually, many crowd came to pulau aman due to its famous mantis shrimp, which sometime its about 8 inch long, steamed and the meat is super juicy! but too bad, we never had the mantis shrimp for this trip, because the mantis shrimp not available. Try luck again next time bah.

After lunch, we were given some free times to "ronda" the island. We walked into the island, and saw this beautiful scenery, its penang bridge, view from pulau aman, and the weather hot!

 This look interesting, my imagination told me, its a motorist helmet..

The white cat also "ronda" around the village lazily.

Suddenly, saw a deer, quickly ask someone nearby (Henry) to help me take a photo of me and deer!

So, we went back to penang island, where our next stop is the shop called Farlim Shell Station Laksa Cafe

I was told the roti ba kua (pork) delicious.

 This is the famous popiah come together with the laksa.

This is the famous laksa.  Some say the best laksa.

This is also popular at the shop. The six ingredient soup. we called it "Cheng Bou Leong". taste not bad.

The last shop we went, for this event was called "Zi Zai Fan Dian" or Zi Zai Restaurant, located at Farlim as well.
Drooling! this is their signature dish, poon choy a.k.a Basin Feast, a basin filled with 14 ingredients such as meat (Nam Joo Pork Belly, Hainan Chicken, Roasted Duck) seafood (Abalone, Prawns, Hock Chew Fish Balls, Fish Maw, Sea Cucumber, Fish Fillet) and vegetables (Cabbages, Yam, Jicama, Broccoli, Chinese Mushroom) on a stove to be shared amongst 10-12 pax. We had a small sized Poon Choi with additional add ons which cost about RM328nett.
