Yong Tau Foo on the go! Popular mobile store moving around from venue to venue selling YTF.
This particular one is the famous 天公壇 seller. Always moving around the crowded Upper Penang Road during night time till wee hours serving the nights owls after Happy Hours.
Every plate is fixed with the selection, top with the chili and sweet sauce plus the deep fried garlic oil, which make the soup even tastier and flavorful.
Penang Pork Noodle (猪肉粉) @ SS4 Petaling Jaya
Operating at the Kean Fatt kopitiam.
As claimed from Penang, the soup is tasty and flavorful. Top with some sliced meats, liver, intestine and minced meats, not forgetting the deep fried lard, just making the bowl of noodle so wonderful!
It is always crowded with customers. Expecting some 30 minutes wait.

泥鳅皇 Restoran How Inn (好運) @ Johor Jaya
Originated from Kota Tinggi, this shop is serving fantastic clay pot dishes! If you like strong tasty food, the Clay Pot Catfish, Clay Pot Special Sauce Pork Ribs are just perfect for you! Cooked in dark soya sauce, striped ginger and dried chili, the catfish gravy is so appetizing! With a slight change of ingredient, the pork ribs are well flavored too!
Other specialties include the Clay pot Pig Stomach Soup, Clay Pot Chicken in Yellow Vinegar and Gingers, and Braised Pork Trotters. Of course they also sell BKT which I never try.

Ang Hoay Lor 洪火爐 @ Gurdawa Road
This famous Hokkien cuisine restaurant has a few branches now in Penang. This one at Gurdawa Road is not too crowded and the foods are served fairly fast.
The signature dish definitely will be the Fried Oyster Noodle. Other than oysters, the noodles are top with sliced Porks, Prawns, vegetables and all soaked into the flavorful gravy!
The other specialty is the Fried Glass Noodles (Tang Hoon) with Prawns as well as the sliced pork and oysters. Their Fried Oyster Omelette is perfect too!
And of course my all time favorite will certainly be the Bak Kee Soup! Sliced Pork coated with Cornstarch then cooked in the starchy soup with cabbage!! Just Fabulous!!
There are many other dishes like the Fried Bean Curds with Leeks, Fried vegetables etc.
