22 Toast Egg-ventures

It all started in Penang, when I was there for a holiday last month. I had a craving for poached or soft-boiled eggs on buttered toast aka 'roti telur goyang'  (roti - bread, telur goyang - wobbly egg) . So, I had it for breakfast two days in a row and even after I was back in Kuala Lumpur.

Lucky this was a short obsession that lasted only a week. I really should be running for curry noodles or tok tok mee when I'm eating out. Telur Goyang  is, after all, something that can be easily made at home.

This is a post on which I thought was the best out of the three I tried that week.

First one's from Hang Chow Hotel cafe along Lebuh Chulia, Penang. It was OK. Presentation-wise, it kind of says, "You're here to answer the call of your growling stomach. What more do you want leh.. "

The next day, I ordered the same from a hawker stall at Restaurant 77 Food Yard, which is across the road from Pulau Tikus Wet Market's fruit and vegetable stalls.

A visually exciting version arrived on our table. The eggs were just the way I loved it and I admired the extra bit of effort this guy put into such a simple meal. It made a huge difference in how I felt about it. I enjoyed this thoroughly. Heavenly stuff - the yolk was oozing out like melted gold. An A-plus if someone were to ask me to rate this!

I was eager to poke the yolks.

Back in KL, and after tempting my husband with an awesome pic of the above-mentioned Pulau Tikus eggs on toast, we ordered a set to try at Hup May Kopitiam one morning. What they served us was eggs on kaya toast. This combination didn't hit it with me. Kaya sweetened egg? Ugh. Hubs didn't find it appealing either.

It just wasn't our thing. One man's meat, another man's poison is what I'm saying for this one. Some people like it this way.

I'm sure you know which egg breakfast I liked most out of the above since I have been quite obvious about it - the one at Pulau Tikus Wet Market, of course!

Typically, people who visit Penang will be aiming to get their fill of authentic Char Kueh Teow, Curry Mee, Assam LaksaNasi Kandar  and Cendol. Me? Here I am with Roti Telur Goyang  in mind for my next trip down. 

This is the other stuff Hubs and I ordered at Hup May Coffee Shop that morning. Curry noodles, which was delicious and nian gao fritters, a yummy snack layered with yam, sticky cake and sweet potato.

  3. I love poached eggs but not on toasts though. Messy. But it is a kind of old Malaysian breakfast, don't you think??

    I think the hawker stall in Restaurant 77 Food Yard did well. Lovely runny egg yolk. Yum yum.

    Now you make me craving for poached egg. In my Maggi curry mee. Lol.

  5. Hi Sharon! I enjoy egg on toast but only in Ipoh or home made. If I am in Penang, egg on toast will be the last thing I order...Lol! because there are so many things I want to eat e.g. assam laksa, or like the curry noodles, nian kao fritters, etc.
