Out of the blue, dad suddenly suggested that we go for porridge with ‘siew yoke’ and ‘char siew’. The mere mention of those words conjured up images of fatty slices of roasted pork goodness. So I said ‘let’s go! what are we waiting for?!’ He told us it was at China Street. And it was […]

Even though Penang is a food haven, sometimes we do get stuck coming up with places to eat. Perhaps its because we’re creatures of habit and tend to go back to places we’re comfortable with.
