Balik Ayer Itam for Apom Balik October 14, 2007Posted by asianpixmen in Activities, Culture, Food, Malaysia, People, Places.
Penang people have a way of saying they have the best of this and the best of that. Most of the time, we humour them but as far as chay koay teow is concerned, they win the argument all the time.
Then, there is that not-so-common these days apom balik. The last time I returned to that island, I found myself in Ayer Itam near the roundabout. In fact, it was next to the former Sui Wah Supermarket.
Naturally, there’s an apom balik stall. The man in the picture is the “boss”. Not bad, I must say but I am sure he has had experienced better days.
