On a public holiday, not having anywhere to go, we decided to visit Balik Pulau as our support for cuti-cuti Malaysia.  Indeed we made the right choice, once we ventured onto the road and realised that there was no jam.  Excellent.  Skipped breakfast, on arrival at 11 am, it was brunch time.  We decided to go straight to the Balik Pulau Food Court in order to accomplish the list of street food we planned to conquer ....

Started off with the Laksa RM3.00
Order the regular and add 50cents veg - makes it RM 3.50
Ever eaten laksa with fish roe ?
I was pleasantly surprised by the roe and also the chunky fish

Talk about monopoly, there are 2 laksa stalls at the food court.
Both by the same owner, early morning they start at Stall No. 37
Late morning till lunch they move to Stall No. 26
They claim that they are the same as the one at the junction, Nan Guang Kopitiam

Another popular spot is opposite the Nan Guang

I am getting confused now, which one to go to.
But I have a gut feeling that they all taste about the same, being from the same are.
Most likely all of them will get a 5 star rating from me.
If you are a Laksa person, please try every stall and tell me which is the best.
Next time I come to Balik Pulau, I must try the Malay style laksa - Laksa Janggus

Ok let us move on to the Koay Teow Thing
RM 3.00 for a regular
The fishball is super crunchy, so if you have already eaten 2 bowls of laksa and still want to try it, don't bother with the carbs - just order 1 bowl of fish ball 10 pieces for RM2.70

Foodie's Choice
Food court so you can have more variety
Skip the coffee, go for nutmeg sour plum
Laksa and Pasembur is a MUST
Fish ball only if you can't eat anymore!

Please leave some space for the Pasembur Balik Pulau
Small RM2.70, Large RM 3.50
I suggest you go there around brunch time, take your own sweet time with the laksa and koay teow thing and around 1130am when the Pasembur opens, attack it.
One of the best I have ever had, just check out the crowd.

Well, after everyone is full and satisfied, go for a car ride to Pulau Betong and along Jalan Tun Sardon.
Nice car ride with beautiful scenery and paddy fields.
You don't even feel like you are in Penang, but you are ...
that is the beauty of our island :-)
We were lucky to have an avid cyclist taking us round these beautiful scenes.
Also we were in a car not on a bicycle with all the Laksa in our stomach.
Was a very good day outing.
Cheap and good ... as always ....
