Al Fresco Hawker Area @ Lengkok Burma, Penang

Dad described this Lengkok Burma hawker area as "eating under the coconut tree". Intrigued, we had to go check it out.

It was indeed, al fresco dining, hawker style. Protected by big shady trees as well as a mini coconut grove, we soon got down to business.

From this elderly couple, we ordered char koey teow.

Hubby said it was the most complete char koey teow (RM3.00) we have had in Penang so far, in terms of ingredients. I would have preferred it to be more salty and "wok hei", but overall, it was pretty good, replete with all the stuff you would expect in a balanced char koey teow...chives, bean sprouts, cockles, large prawns, lots of eggs.

I had to have the Penang chee cheong fun, of course (RM1.60 small, RM2.40 large). Could have used more sauce! I love the "smelly" shrimp paste sauce.

3-bams for the morning al fresco dining in cool surroundings.
