Wan Soon Curry Mee @ Taman Green Lane/Jelutong, Penang

I’ve been curious about this lil stall selling curry mee along Jalan Sir Ibrahim at Taman Green Lane for quite some time. Every time I drive pass, it’s always busy and packed with people. So like any other Penangite, it piqued my interest for it is usually assumed that a place that is packed should […]

Macau Street Foods

Photos galore so let’s get to it! 🙂 1. “Lo Mai Fan”, Porridge and Pork Dumplings (“siew mai”) from random street vendor We were walking from the hotel past Senoda Square when we stumbled upon […]

Yap Hup Kee Hakka Yong Tau Foo @ Pudu, KL

When Matt asked me recently what I felt like for lunch, I immediately said “chee cheong fun! with Yong tau foo!” I haven’t had good yong tau foo in ages and I was also craving for some chee cheong fun KL style – sweet beanpaste sauce (‘tim cheong’) and all! And so Matt took over […]

Sweet & Sour Fishballs

This is a long overdue post, as I prepared this dish for a pot luck at the end of last year. At that time, I had spotted this simple yet tantalizing recipe from Rasa Malaysia’s site. And the pot luck was the perfect opportunity for me to try out the recipe! I have never had […]

Zi Wei Yuan Steamboat @ Raja Uda, Butterworth

At the last minute, a group of friends and I decided to meet up for dinner last Saturday since we were all too busy to meet over Chinese New Year. Since it was a weekend, we decided to go a bit further than we usually do for food – across the Penang Bridge to Raja […]

Tua Pui Curry Mee & O Kio @ Weld Quay

One of my favourite Curry Mee stalls in Penang is located along Weld Quay just outside the stall owner’s house. If you are travelling with the jetty on your left, Tua Pui (hokkien for ‘fat’) Curry Mee stall is further down from the jetty, after the Shell station, on the opposite side of the road. […]

Seafood Porridge @ Sg Tiram

There is little kopitiam at Sg Tiram (along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, on the way to the airport, after the factories Osram, Bosch and Amphenol) which is famous for its seafood porridge. This kopitiam is popular with the factory crowd as it is nearby and opens for breakfast. For breakfast, they serve simple items like […]

Chee Cheong Fun @ Macalister Lane

I must admit that I’m not a big fan of Chee Cheong Fun (rice sheet rolls) unless, the Chee Cheong Fun is from the stall at Macalister Lane. I can’t help it, I’m picky when it comes to my Chee Cheong Fun because, in my humble opinion, not everyone can make a yummy-licious plate of […]

Best Pan Mee in Penang!

When I was younger, I’d never tasted Pan Mee before. I only discovered this delicious off white homemade noodles made out of flour, when I studied in KL. I remember tasting my first bowl of pan mee at a road side stall along the streets of Wangsa Maju. And have been a fan ever since. […]
