Yummy Street Food @ New Lane Penang

Though I have been living in Penang for almost 6 years now but I don't venture to many places for food though Penang is considered as 'Food Heaven' in Malaysia. This is because my dear hubby dislike crowd and places where parking is a problem. Therefore, we will go to a few common places where food are ok and ample parking.

Most good street food can be found in New Lane where tourists patronises most of the time. We try not to go there during weekends as this place will be so packed with people... if we do want to go on a weekend, we have to be there early.
Batu Maung Satay & Pork Satay with peanut sauce
My current favorite is the special 'Batu Maung' satay (the light yellow variant)... I think by far these 'satays' or meat kebabs are one of the best I have had to date. They are very tasty as all the marinade stick on to the meat itself so you don't even need any peanut sauce. The stall in New Lane also sell the regular varieties which goes with the peanut sauce. I particularly like the pork satay (the darker variant).

Chee-cheong-fun (rice flour rolls in prawn paste sauce)
The other food which we definitely will order is the 'chee cheong fun' (rice flour rolls) which comes with prawn paste sauce. This is a must have as it is uniquely Penang to say the least!

Tourists will normally throng this place every weekends. Especially when there is a long weekend, Penangites will have to avoid going there as it is simple impossible to get a seat! It is as if they buy gold bars at rock bottom price!!!
