Padang Brown, The Best 'Eat All You Can' Spot in Penang

Recently we went to Padang Brown for 'makan-makan'.
This is one of my favorite 'eat all you can' spot in Penang.
Cheap and original, where Penang people go to eat with their family.
There are abundant of choice, you name it, they got it.
Pasembur, Mee Mamak, Yong Tau Fu, Satay, Ais Kacang, just to name a few.

Nizam Corner, stall number 57 (last stall) selling the famous Penang's comfort food, Hokkien (prawn) Mee, Curry Mee and Koay Teow Th'ng (soup)

The stall worker preparing Hokkein Prawn Mee.

The stall owner, Nizam, need to be persuaded for a photo shot. He such a 'manmathan' himself, 'Nalla jokar'. I wonder where did he learnt the secret Hokkien recipes.

The original Penang Hokkein Prawn Mee. Yellow noodle, vermicelli (bihun), beansprouts, kangkung, hard boiled egg, fish ball, fish cake and fresh prawns in a seafood broth. RM 3.00 per bowl. My rank: 4/5 stars.

The other Nizam (my brother in-law) having good time enjoying his prawn mee. (on the house) The owner insisted not to charge the 1st bowl as a promotion drive. Nice ya! Aesya looking at her uncle 'makan' so sedap, meh sikit!

This is mine. The one and only, Koay Teow Th'ng. Flat rice noodle (koay teow), chicken meat, fish ball, fish cake, spring onions in a clear chicken soup. Simply steaming and delicous. My favorite Penang food. RM 3.00 per bowl. My rank: 4/5 stars.

Stall number 54, AR. Firdaus Cafe. Selling the best Ais Kacang, Coconut, Shake, Milk Shake, Markisa Coconut and many more. The green sentence says " Be a thankful human being and loyal to Allah". Indeed a useful reminder to all of us.

What an inviting stall setting. You will feel thirsty by looking at the advertisement photos.  

This is the famous Coconut Markisa. Some sort of non-alcoholic cocktail. Nicely mixed and balance. Something new to me but I quickly like it.

Green apple juice, fresh and thirst quenching.

This is the signature drink of  AR. Firdaus Cafe, Milo (Chocolate) Shake. You cannot stop sipping once started. Wow, entirely different sensation. I have no idea Milo Shake can be so nice. I highly recommend you guys to try this one. Simply amazing, you'll be asking for more.

We ordered satay out of curiosity. The beef satay was very delicious indeed. Tender and melting. The sauce was quite different but still nice. I didn't get the stall number but it was near to the AR. Firdaus Cafe.
