Do you prefer to eat Kampung Chicken rather than the commercially bred chicken? If you do, then head down over to Hutton Lane. There is a stall that sells chicken rice and a variety of meat – roast pork, roast chicken and bbq pork and their speciality is the Kampung Chicken.
This variety of Kampung Chicken is known as “ang koo” in Hokkien or “woo so kie” in Cantonese. The meat is tasty and lean. The yellowish skin is much thinner and very smooth (doctors advised not to eat the skin but can’t resist!!!). It comes with steaming hot rice, garlic chili sauce and their special soya sauce with chopped chinese celery leaves.
And also not forgetting the soup which has a bit of chinese kei chi and herbs. It is mild and very tasty….
Look out for this stall as you travel downwards in Hutton Lane. The coffeeshop is on your left, two houses away from the mosque.
**Updated 2010** – The stall is no longer operating!

I had the banana leaf rice which was served on a banana leaf. I chose the mutton curry to go with the rice. The waiter laid the rice and 3 side servings of vegetable, beans and chutney (pickles) on the leaf. He top it up with two pieces of pampadum (crackers). Most of the customers ate the rice with their hands.
The tiny “apple” cookies was so cute and looks so real that I could not resist buying some and on top of that, some chocolate almond cakes too.

We were there quite early and the tables were not fully occupied. We decided to try out other dishes besides the ones that we have tasted on our first visit.
The menu for the night include:
a) Boiled baby octopus – tu boh sui, with two types of chili sauce, a red and a green.
b) Steam prawns in Chinese wine.
c) Fried noodles -mee-tiau (photo shown in my earlier blog)
d) Teochew style steamed fish with preserved salted vegetable and tofu.
e) Black pepper crabs – very tasty dish especially with the sauce fried until dried.

No doubt, it is the posh showroom of the above logo that needs no introduction….
This state of the art center looks very different now as compare to its earlier days when it was a showroom of another car company. Besides displaying their latest cars, they also have their MINI and BMW motorcycles.
Believe it or not – Eel Fishball??? That is what we found out in the Rasa-Rasa Penang book. It feature a Koay teow thng (koay teow soup) stall in Lebuh Pitt which sells fishball made from eel (mua hoo in Hokkien) meat. In order to kill our curiosity, we just have to try it.
It is the “lone ranger” stall in Heng Seng Coffeeshop at Pitt Street and Armenian Street junction.
A basic bowl of Koay teow thng comes with slices of duck meat, sliced mince meat and five balls. The fish ball is not as “bouncy” as those sold by most of the stalls and the smell is not that strong. The clear soup is a chicken and duck based soup. The sliced mince meat was tasty. Extra ingredients can be added on to your liking.
The chili padi that are served to the customers are ready mixed with garlic and soak in soya sauce. It enhance the taste of the soya sauce.
Updates : The stall has since moved to another shop further up the road in January 2009. Click here for the new location.
