Hawker food brunch at Ho Ping Coffeeshop on Penang Road this morning:
- Mee Goreng, a spicy Indian-Muslim stir-fried noodle dish, with beansprouts, slivers of "vadai" (Indian fritters), tofu and eggs.
- Beef "koay teow": blanched flat rice noodles topped with minced beef, dark soysauce & sesame oil dressing, and served with a light beef soup with beef balls. Very tasty.
- Penang "char koay teow": stir-fried flat rice noodles, beansprouts, shrimps, cockles, sliced Chinese waxed sausages, egg & chives, flavoured with light soysauce. The version here has the requisite "wok hei" aroma, but slightly bland to taste.
