Been a while since I updated this blog, gotta find that discipline back. Anyway, today I want to introduce you to one of the breakfast spots we’ve been frequenting in Taman Eng Ann – the largely “invisible” Restoran Chon Yu, a small outfit a few doors down from Big Pharmacy.

Restoran Chon Yu has one main stall offering wantan mee and is operated by (I’m guessing here) a duo of mother and daughter. Here you can find a few varieties of wantan mee – from the typical chasiu & wantan, to minced meat, and to our favorite – chicken feet with mushroom.

The chicken feet and mushroom wantan mee is served with a side of wantan soup in addition to the typical deep fried then braised chicken feet and mushroom. A fan of chicken feet will definitely appreciate the texture of the chicken feet here, springy, flavorful, and with an awesome mouth feel. They’re of pretty good size too!

If you’re looking for a wholesome breakfast and happen to eat these, try it here!

There are several types of peanut candies you can find in Malaysia, the one that’s most common is perhaps the type you find in Ipoh, with hard candied sugar and relatively chunky peanuts. Personally though, my favorite is the type we referred to as “kong th’ng” in Penang – the type with crushed peanut & sugar packed into a cylindrical shape 2-3 inches tall.

As far as this “kong th’ng” goes, many places offers them as is, but if you head to Weld Quay in Penang and look for Khoon’s stall, you’ll find one that comes with special pohpiah skin.

The role of pohpiah skin is two fold – it serves as a handy wrapper for the peanut candy so you don’t make a mess of your shirt while biting them down, and more importantly, compliment the taste of sweet peanut candy with a hint of saltiness as well as a nice change in texture. Simply lovely.
