Superb place for a *real* Penang breakfast - located right behind Penang Plaza & Hotel Royal, One Corner Cafe on Jalan Bawasah is the go-to place for local Penangites looking for good hawker chow.
What we tried this morning:
- "Koay teow t'ng": flat rice noodles in a tasty pork broth, topped with minced pork, golden-crisp lardons, garlic crisps, fish-balls and a sprinkling of chopped spring onions. Loved the generous serving of minced pork here.
- "Penang char koay teow": fried rice noodles with egg, Chinese sausages, shrimps, cockles and beansprouts. De-licious here! With a distinct "wok-hei" aroma. A bit too spicy for me though.
- Steamed yam cake, topped with crisp-fried shallots and chopped spring onions. Served with hoi-sin sauce and chilli sauce. Chunks of yam gave the pudding a distinct flavor. Love this.
