This hawker centre, which located side by side to Bayan Baru wet market and Sunshine Square, is one of the signature and bustling in Penang. Thought Chinese hawker stalls occupied the majority, sprinkling Malay and Indian stalls are welcomed by huge crowd of patrons too. The hawker centre is huge and wide, there are ready tables and chairs all the time. Here comprising most of Penang hawker foods that you may name, and most importance they are all in reasonable price.
It only cost RM4 a bowl, but portion is relatively small with little duck thin cutlet provided. Clear broth is good in taste, well balance in seasoning and I almost finished up till last drop. Noodle is thin, soft but silky, providing totally delightful texture. Simple but comforting food.
There are many Hokkien noodle stalls at Bayan Baru hawker centre, we just simple pick one and make order of it. This Hokkien Mee comes in a reasonable and standard hawker food price, topping with a chuck of dried smash shrimp and onion. Overall, the Hokkien mee tastes alright, but unfortunately it is not the one that I would addicted into. I feel some missing on the soup seasoning, and the chili paste as well.
Tea quality keeps to standard, full of aroma, so do bubble and jelly are springy too. Serving is quite fast, as many staffs are working at the same time. Small tables are provided at the shop, which allow patrons to have a little rest to enjoy the drink. Though small dining space, but clean and clear at least.
This is second branch after the one at Bayan Baru. It was packed with patrons during our visit at weekend dinner time. But services are prompt from order taking to food serve. Foods tastes are authentic in Hong Kong style which very much match with the old Hong Kong interior design and decoration. You may find most of Hong Kong signature foods here, like Che Zai Min, Gai Dan Zai, Cheong Fan, grape tart, Poh Loh Bao, milk tea, lemon coke and more. Price is relatively low than expected.
Ban Heang may not have long history like Ghee Hiang and Him Heang, but branches were spread over Penang island in short recent years. This branch at Penang Airport is one of them, located just right at the departure hall with a sharp signboard. Traditional pastries Tau Sar Piah or Tambum Piah is the signature, but you may find lots of new invented flavor like durian, pandan, dried shrimp spice and etc. Besides traditional pastries, I also noticed many new and unique pastries available here.
Penang airport is one of the oldest airport in Malaysia, it was renovated in years pass and currently multilevel car park is in the progressing. The airport is not big and little crowded in fact, not many chairs and seats are provided, particularly at departure hall. Due to spaces constraint, there are limited cafes and fast food restaurants inside the airport and usually pack with passengers who waiting for boarding. In my experiences so far, immigration progress and services are fast.
This night market is eventually getting expended over years, where more new residential were popped, while more stalls get involved and more visitors are dropping by. There are many fresh daily products stalls here, selling raw vegetable, chicken, fish and fruit. Price is relatively cheap. Lekor, economy mee goreng, apom balik are my regularly visited stalls here.
The studio may look little shabby at fast glance, no fancy interior design or furniture inside. But do guarantee a skillful and patient hair cut services provided. The lady owner and 2 workers are working inside and make a good job in taking turn, which wouldn't get customer to wait long. Price is reasonable. Simple boy hair cut is only charged in RM10.
