Ah Her Bak Kut Teh @ Pandamaran, Klang

30 October 2008


Mention Bak Kut Teh and one would immediately think of Klang, touted home of the best bak kut teh’s in Malaysia. However, there are soooo many Bak Kut Teh stalls in Klang that it can be rather confusing. In fact everyone seems to have their own favourite Klang Bak Kut Teh stall. Each stall has […]

Desserts & Cocktails @ Sakae Izakaya/Sakae Teppanyaki, Auto City Juru

27 October 2008


One of my favourite places to go for teppanyaki is Sakae Teppanyaki at Auto City. But because it’s located on the Mainland, I hardly have the opportunity to eat there. With the long Deepavali holiday weekend, and also news from my brother that they now have tapas and desserts, we immediately made plans to go. […]

21 October 2008


The popiah in Padang Brown is perhaps one of the best popiahs in Penang. And it has been rather blogged to death. But I just couldn’t resist doing a post on this. Mainly because the photos are amazing! (step by step photos on making the popiah!) Lest you think that my photography skills have suddenly […]

19 October 2008


A few Sunday afternoons ago, we were wondering where to go for lunch. And we ended up at Dragon-y, one of the newly opened  restaurants in Suntech Cybercity (just behind Sunshine Square, opposite the market). I didn’t know what to expect and thought it might be something similar to Dragon-i. Little did I know that […]

Thai Food: Chok Dee Thai Restaurant @ Burmah Road

17 October 2008


I love Thai food, although I’ve only been to Phuket once and have not set foot on Bangkok yet.  Somehow I cannot resist a good bowl of piping hot tomyam or fragrant pieces of pandan chicken or rich mango pulut desserts. Therefore I am constantly searching for good Thai food in Penang. And my most […]

Starview Restaurant @ New World Park, Penang

14 October 2008


Starview Restaurant has always been equated to good Chinese food and the place to go to for dinners and Chinese weddings. Their weekends are always fully booked and don’t hope to get a table if you don’t have a prior reservation! This long established restaurant has recently moved to a spanking new premise in New […]

KissA Koyotei Japanese Restaurant @ Jalan Hutton, Penang

7 October 2008


KissA Koyotei Japanese Restaurant is not exactly new to the food scene, but when it first opened, my family dined there without me and did not give it glowing reviews. Mainly because of the limited food choices and the menu was all in Japanese! We promptly forgot about the place. But when we drove past […]

When driving pass Hillside Tanjung Bungah a few weeks ago, I spotted a new restaurant being renovated next to the Ingolf German Restaurant. I was immediately taken by its beautiful brick wall exterior and wooden floorings. And made a mental note to come check this place out. Besides I was really excited! Bulgarian food in […]
