Finally, the place where people would say phrase like, “you’ve not visited Penang if you haven’t been there.” Yes, the infamous Lorong Selamat’s fried kuey teow. Before I was even there, EL has been telling me how Penangites would never patronise that place due to its exuberant charges on a plate of fried kuey teow with bigger than usual prawns. Anyway, according to my GPS’ Point of Interest, the description was “a diva with red cap and goggle.” That’s intriguing.

... finally, we were here.

It took us more than 90 minutes for our 4 plates of fried kuey teow. Apparently, they have fucked up the order, despite having the plates stacked in chronological order. When our fried kuey teow was served, the most apparent thing would be the 3 big prawns lying on top of the flat noodles. Fragrance wise, it wasn’t anything fancy. Fortunately, the taste was good. It wasn’t as salty as the one I had last night and the fragrance from the pork lard was good. As for the price of the dish, it was RM6.80 for a small sized one. I have had no complains because I don’t have it often. Since I was a tourist there, I guess I have to do what a tourist gotta do. At least the taste was good despite all the waiting.
