Coconut Jelly @ Penang

I love penang tau sar pneah, but this time around I was brought to another shop called 'Ming Xiang Tai' apparently it is much better and tastier than the normal 'baby heang' famous biscuit brand from Penang.

The outlook of the shop
 
Here you can choose to have your biscuits here during tea time, and try some of their delicious 'tau fu far' or take away, it's up to you.
 We tasted their famous Egg tarts, salted egg biscuit and tau fu far
Then take away 10boxes to bring back to KL. LOL!
 The interior of the shop, small and cosy
Address: No. 133, Jalan Burma, 10050 Georgetown, Pulau Pinang. 
(located right opposite the huge pet shop)
 Info: They are closed on Monday

Next the long awaited Coconut Jelly!!!!! It's better than Ice Cream, well it's much cooling and special, you'll know why =)
Coconutssssssss
 
Tadaaaaa.....the famous Penang Coconut Jelly!!!! 
  
hmmmm....looks like any other ordinary coconut that you can order from anywhere....
Open it up and....
 
It's Jelly people!!!!!
The coconut is fully sealed, meaning it's like how you order coconut water, and then only they open it up for you. But then, how did they put the jelly inside?

Process: Apparently, they place the entire coconut in the oven and steam it at very high degree. Then they place it in the refrigerator to freeze it. And that's how the jelly is formed. As Easy as A, B, C right??
You guys should really try this in Penang, you won't regret it, trust me! unless you hate coconut? I can't think of a reason how anyone can hate this....

Basically, that's all about my trip in Penang. I shall end this post with a bowl of Asam Laksa which is my favourite delicacy in Penang, always and forever.
