There was an hour line for the more famous char koay teow next door at Lorong Selamat coffee shop, so we came here instead. Gotta say this was amazing anyway so no loss. Nice wok hei, crispiness to the fried egg and firm, bouncy prawns. The laksa was also pretty good but the other one near Chowrasta market was better.

So good. Heap of rice rolls doused in fragrant sesame oil, with sweet sauce, chilli and prawn paste on the side. Had to be taught by the chatty stallholder how to properly enjoy this: first mix the cheong fun well with just the sesame oil, then try different combinations of the three sauces that each give a completely flavour. Sit on stools by the roadside and just. Eat.

Thin, firm noodles with quite a good chilli and black sauce gravy. Could have this for breakfast everyday.

Not bad coffees, pretty flavourful and the bagel was nice and chewy.

Tastes more home-brewed than the usual you'd find in Singapore. Overall okay.

Popular drink around these parts. Grassy, sour and quite refreshing.

From a random stall that promised "extra seafood" including "mantis shrimp". Cheated.

Soupy mess of coconut milk, gula melaka, a few red beans and the cendol itself. Good but too little shaved ice and basically just a drink. People here go nuts for it though; a non-stop queue that keeps moving and has people slurping it up by the roadside for a quick, cooling dessert.

This stood out. A small roadside shop that sells mostly only penang laksa and chendol (which it's more famous for). Things move fast here and the uncle gets impatient when you don't hear him the first time but that's the essence of Penang and its love for food.

Nice charsiew, tender duck but nothing you can't get in good ol' Singapore

Supper right when we got to the hotel, which was located in the heart of Little India. Pretty darn good.
