Can you believe it? Last Sunday I went to 7 Road Market and it was my first time going to that place after so many years of living in Penang. Lebuh Cecil is more to be known as Qit Tiau Lor to the local or literally means 7th Road in English.
I was talking about food with my friends in school and one of them introduced me to try out the Duck Meat Koay Teow Thng. We got no idea where to eat for lunch on Sunday so I told dad, “Let’s go to 7th Road to eat Koay Teow Thng.” Dad droves us there.
Lebuh Cecil Market or 7th Road Market is a wet market with the food court behind the market. I was surprised to see there’s so many hawker stall at the food court. There’s so many choice of local hawker food to choose from and I didn’t know where to start. I told myself I will visit this place again and again.
First food to order was the Duck Meat Koay Teow Thng since everyone was telling me that it’s good. It’s not hard to try, you can easily spotted the big lighted stall with it’s lightbox on top.
Dad asked for extra ingredient. It’s all duck meat with duck’s blood too. I don’t like the duck blood but the meat is nice. I like the fishball too, it’s soft and I can say that it’s not from the supermarket. The soup is sweet enough but then the taste of pepper is a little bit strong. Lesser pepper powder will be good.
Mom’s lunch was a plate of Lam Mee. I didn’t try it because I am not a fan of Lam Mee. According to mom, she said it’s good as there’s so many ingredients.
Dad loves Pasembur, we did order a plate to try out too. Pasembur is a kind of local Indian salad with shreded cucumber, turnip, potatoes, beancurd, bean sprouts, prawn fritters. The prawn fritters were crunchy enough but somehow dad says Taman Free School’s is better.
Lastly, we got a bowl of Fu Zhou Fish Ball Soup. If you do not know what this is, this is actually a bowl of fish ball in soup with tang hoon. The fish ball is different from the Koay Teow Thng’s fish ball as this has meat in the balls and it’s huge too. The soup is sweet and this is better than Taman Free School’s though. Hehe.
There’s so many stall of hawker food and I’ll go and try other next time. Any recommendation from those who have visited before? =)
