yes, daily!!! 

a penang style salad with fruits/cuttlefish/
cucumber etc and tossed with prawn paste, chilli
and topped with ground peanuts 

Curry Mee
yellow noodles and vermicelli infused in
spicy coconut curry and with cockles
tofu puffs, cuttlefish, and shrimps as toppings.

 jacama (yambean), diced beancurb,
and crab meat wrapped in fresh spring roll

Prawn Noodles
 popular noodle soup with spicy broth made from
prawn shells and heads.
served with slices of hard-boiled eggs, shredded prawns, 
 pork, crispy fried shallots and a spoonful of chili paste. 

Chendol (desert )
pandan flavoured noodles. shaved ice
  red beans in coconut milk and palm sugar syrup.

Fried Oyster Omelette
 fried omelette with fresh oysters, with starch mixed into the eggs.
the key to this dish is Wok Hei (breath of wok) as well as
 the generous use of fresh and succulent oysters

Chee Cheong Fun 
steamed rice rolls with oil, sweet sauce, and
Heh Koe (prawn paste sauce)
  topped with toasted sesame seeds, and fried shallots

Apong Balik
Malaysian pancake filled with sliced bananas...

Pulut Inti
glutinous rice topped with caramelised grated coconut flesh
  wrapped in a cut banana leaf to resemble a square pyramid.

Kuih Lapis

resulting a very soft and tender kueh (dessert )
 delicious fragrance from freshly squeezed coconut milk.

 you peel layer by layer
just for the fun of it

(not eaten like this by all,
 but definitely by mumster! )
