I hope my mom does not read this one. I will be in trouble if she does.
When you are not cooking and you are in a hurry, there is not much choices in Penang when it comes to food. You can’t go to the cheaper kopitiams because there would be a lack of parking spaces nearby and you end up wasting time circling the area, and then you waste more time waiting for seats at the restaurant itself. So, what do you do when you are hungry and in a hurry? Simple. You go somewhere where most Penangites refuse to go.
Well, here’s what I had over last weekend while running around like a headless chicken.
Some weekend mixed platter in Manhattan Fish Market. Forgot what’s it called exactly. Fried fish fingers, fried scallops, grilled chicken, veges, fries and garlic rice. Have this for brunch and you can forget about having another meal until late night. I paid less than RM 30 for this plus a drink.
Trivia: Did you know that Manhattan Fish Market is not an American franchise? It is a bloody Malaysian franchise. I was cheated once as a kid when a cousin who came back from studying in Chicago claiming that he had eaten at the real Manhattan Fish Market outlet in the US.
I found myself back at Giant Bayan Baru to finalize my new Yes 4G plan. I just discovered they have a 1MB unlimited quota plan. I found myself absolutely famished and staring at the same KFC which I patronized on Thursday.
I tried to eat as healthy as I can. I really tried. See, I got the Fiery Bombay Crunch burger that has some lettuce and a slice of tomato in it! It’s actually just a Zinger burger pimped up with some cripsy flakes. And some vegetables.
I wanted to grab a quick breakfast in the morning market, but there was no parking spot. I needed to check in to the office quick, so I went to the only place that I knew parking spots exist in abundance: OldTown. And had this. I was inspired by Mun’s super early morning post.
No wait, this is the wrong picture to post. Photo op time..
Yeah, this looks much better. 😉
I left office close to 3 PM. The only eateries still doing business at this kind of time are fast food, OldTown, or this guy..
I had some grapes at the new place, then I drove back to the old place straight. I forgot to look for dinner. Then I was too lazy to go out again. So I blogged and then went to bed.
