    Cheok Sah Foodcourt: BM Laksa one of the best

    by SLLiew Written Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Laksa is local favorite for Penang, Kedah and Perlis region. It's origin is a combination of Malay, Thai and Chinese.

    A bowl of rice white noodles in a fish meat based soup that is spicy, sourish and hot. Additional chilly and the hea-koh (black shrimp paste sauce) are optional. Garnished with chopped onions, cucumber, vegetable, pineapple, ginger flower (laksa flower), fragrant leaves.

    Found the laksa noodle here extra thick and yummy. Each laksa outlet have their peculiar laksa soup which is definitive. Best taken when served hot. The stall is minimal but the laksa great.

    Cheok Sah Food Court: Near the railway station

    Near the BM railway station and next to the old cinema is the Cheok Sah food court which is popular with the locals for assam laksa, ice kacang, curry mee and mee jawa.

    It is popular with the locals and best time to go in the afternoon. One of my favorite places to have a quick afternoon meal whenever I visit Bukit Mertajam. So look out for me if you are there.

    If driving, you can park at the railway station car park, turn left and keep walking for 5 minutes until you see the food court on your left. There are other roadside parking but it can be difficult to find an empty lot.

    Yong Kei: Restaurant for the average Joe

    by mtaiwai Updated Jun 11, 2007

    This is the restaurant that I always go to whenever I am in BM. Typical open air, chinese "chu char" restaurant commonly found in any town. The ambience is not really suitable to treat VIP guests, but I will go with mom and friends anytime.

    Favorite Dish: Tau Kua Suan Na (stir fried Teow Chew Beancurd and Chinese Leak)
    Teow Chew style Steam Junior Sting Ray (Phiak Kia)
    Kong Pau Mantis Prawn (seasonal)

    "Black Man" Rojak: Famous Rojak

    by mtaiwai Written Jun 11, 2007

    This is a stall located in a corner coffee shop, selling notably the best rojak in BM ( I would shameless say in best in Penang).
    Below is my comparison of BM and Penang Rojak.
    Common item: cut mixed fruit
    Special in BM Rojak: yew char kuey, ngiau chu chi, Rojak sauce
    Special in Penang Rojak: Jiu hu (soaked squid, brownish color, as in jiu hu eng chai), Rojak sauce

    BM Rojak -> Black Man Rojak
    Penang Rojak -> Tai Hwa Rojak (in Swatow Lane coffee shop)

    Favorite Dish: Rojak

    Kuih Stalls around Pek Kong Cheng: Best Chai Kueh in Penang

    by mtaiwai Written Oct 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I think of BM, Chai Kueh comes to mind. And the best Chai Kueh are sold at kuih stalls in front of the Pek Kong Temple (locally called Pek Kong Cheng).

    Found Chai Kueh in the morning and evening , but I find those sold in the evenings are much better.
    The BM Chai Kueh is typically Pinkish in color, with few types of fillings, namely:-
    a) Ku Chai (chive)
    b) Bang Kuang (turnips)
    c) Thor Tau (peanuts)

    Favorite Dish: Chai Kueh
