Street Food [Penang]

vacation in Penang wouldn't be complete without trying their street food. i was never that of a picky eater and i do miss the street food in Manila so why not try the Malaysian ones? picture above is  cucur udang or prawn fritters. similar to "okoy" though. tough/crunchy on the outside but soft inside. it's deliciously dipped in chili sauce though. here are the other street foods that i have enjoyed;
pisang champada (fried chempedak). the fruit is like something in between jackfruit and durian. nope, i don't eat durian...yet. i still have to convince myself to eat durian in the near future as i am foreseeing that i will be 'forced' to eat it since i was able to try champada. the smell is like jackfruit but the texture is like durian. i didn't mind trying the fried one as it is covered in batter and was deep fried. wish me luck if i'll try durian. :D

 malaysian burger. i can't point out what is special about their street burger though i have to admit it was yummy! haha! my burger was of beef patty wrapped in scrambled egg. and they added coleslaw on the bun. sorry, i didn't take a picture of the burger itself as i immediately ate it. i became really hungry while watching them cook and prepare the food. haha!

pisang goreng (fried banana) somewhat similar to bananacue except that this one is just covered in batter and they used a different variety of banana. you will just really rely on the sweetness of the banana as the batter was bland. but nevertheless good as well. probably i was just used to eating bananacue which was really sweet since its sugar coated.
it was a good experience to try these street foods. i most especially love the cucur udang! but honestly, i must say i do really love food that's why!
