Yummy Chinese Pancakes @ Church Street, Penang

Regular readers of this blog will remember this post back in 2007 when I blogged about one of my favourite foods in Penang – the unique and yummy chinese pancakes. I was introduced to this delightful snack by my dad which originally sold in a coffee shop off Beach Street (next to Maybank and Standard […]

Wickedly Good Weekend Chee Cheong Chok @ China Street

Out of the blue, dad suddenly suggested that we go for porridge with ‘siew yoke’ and ‘char siew’. The mere mention of those words conjured up images of fatty slices of roasted pork goodness. So I said ‘let’s go! what are we waiting for?!’ He told us it was at China Street. And it was […]

Apologies for my lack of updates and disappearance from the blogosphere of late.

The Hokkien Mee Chronicles – Part 1 (Super Hokkien Mee)

I read that Babe in the City is organizing a Mee and My Malaysia ‘open house’ this year in conjunction with Merdeka Day for food bloggers… but since I don’t really cook (prefer to bake) and I happen to be consuming a lot of Hokkien Mee lately, I thought I’d do the next best thing. […]

Tucked away in Bangkok Lane in Pulau Tikus, Penang, is an eccentric uncle hawking his unique pork satay (currently priced at RM0.50 per stick, used to be only 40cents a […]

Breakfast @ Pulau Tikus

One of my favourite places to go to for Sunday morning breakfast is Pulau Tikus market area. Traffic and parking around that area can be quite a bit of a hassle since this area is usually jammed packed in the mornings. But every once in a while, I do not mind braving the marketing crowd, […]

Mee CRC @ Larut Cafe

At the corner of Larut Road and Bawasah Road lies a little kopitiam that normally wouldn’t catch one’s eye.

They serve 2 types of mee here […]
