One can sing love for chee cheong fun till the cows come home or till the chee cheong fun is packed with har koh ("prawn paste") is in her hands.
The other can get the lady to literally pour out the bottom of her pot to serve a small bowl of prawn mee. Did i mention that she was also persistent to get her hands on some eggy indian appom that she went there two mornings in a row?
Situated in Swee Kong, at the corner of Jalan Burma and Solok Moulmein, infront of a police station, one cannot miss it.
Voila, the Eggy Indian Appom is ready for 50 cents a piece. The edges are crispy while the middle was creamy and represented the "egg yolk". The coconut flavour flows through the piece and is a brilliant breakfast for some, whilst for others? It was to munch along the way to breakfast.
Manned by an indian uncle who was rather fluent in Hokkien, the place is a real sell out, finishing his business by 10am when we first visited. The next day, we arrived at 8 and just ahead of an order of 50 pieces. Phew.
I am glad the bunch of people i went to Penang with are persistent.
