Sky Cafe - BBQ Pork and Ai Yu Ping at Pengkalan Weld

OK this will be my first review

So this Sky Cafe has probably been blogged about many times. So me and my colleagues decided we should also give this place a try on a Friday lunch hour.
Its located along Chulia Street, yes I'm now based in Penang so probably many of my posting will be of Penang food.
Back to this place. The environment is of the typical chinese coffee shop where you are packed and have to wait for your seat hawking around to see who is finishing their food and about to get up, and then you swoop to the table :p
So, there was 9 of us on that day, and we managed to get 2 tables after about 5 mins waiting.We ordered the boss for a mix combo, which included soup of the day, boiled vegi, BBQ pork (Char Siew), roast pork, roast duck and roast chicken. What a combo!
Below are the pictures.
My comments, the BBQ pork is what stands out (this is Char Siew in chinese). The rest of the items are just pretty ordinary. The rice, is truly dissappointing as it is only white rice and not the more fragrant oil rice which goes so well with chicken rice. The soup and vegi is also very simple. All in all, its pretty reasonable with a set for 5 person costing about RM6.20 each (with 4 extra rice)
So do give this place a try, especially the BBQ pork (Char Siew)
Rating : 3.5/5

After that we happen to stop by a stall, which my good friend Wee Kwang recommended for "Ai Yu Ping" which is a kind of Jelly with shaved ice and lemon juice.
This mobile van stall is located along the road to the Jetty opposite some of the Clan Jetties (The road is Pengkalan Weld).
There was lots of jelly and even 1 lychee. But not sure is it that day but the amount of lemon was just too little. Not enough sour taste to kick it up a notch!
Do stop by if you are thirsty and looking for something to cool down.
