Pub Street/Night Market in Siem Reap town is a famous tourist spots with restaurants mushrooming in that area. Most of them, however, are not cheap compared to local restaurants in other regions (after all, Pub Street/Night Market are meant for tourists). We, however, found a Cambodian restaurant with reasonable price and decent food quality – Cambodian Traditional Chef Restaurant.
Only You is located at Street 22 in Siem Reap town (GPS: 13.35604,103.85945). Street 22 is a long stretch of street and the restaurant is located toward Siem Reap river, six streets away and north from Hard Rock. We walked from from our Cafe Lodge Boutique Hotel to the premise after returning from temple hopping and taking a shower. As a first timer, the hidden gem is slightly difficulty to find as there is no street signboard along the way. An easier way is to open up an online map. The easiest way is to call for Tuk Tuk, of course.
Baller Koffeez (RM15) – Arabica Estate Cafe‘s signature coffee with double shot of espresso, an ice ball better known as Whiskey ball, and home recipe creamer. If you happen to catch Pokemon at Karpal Singh Drive, Penang, be sure to visit the premise for a glass of it to recharge yourself.
Last year, we could still enjoy a plate of Kappa Maki (Cucumber Roll) at the price of RM2.00 at Japanese chain restaurants. Thanks to currency depreciation, it is now a history. Either the same color plate had increased price, or the Maki was “promoted” to the ext color. Sushi YA appears to be our pocket saver.
Craving for Laksa one afternoon, we were told by our friend that there was a new restaurant in Taman Lip Sin offering the local delicacy along with other dishes during lunch hour. Without further ado, we visited it on the same day as well.
Shen Food & Beverages 陞陞卤味专卖店 is a new food outlet opened on 9-Sep-2016 at i-Avenue, Bayan Lepas, Penang. We stumbled upon this new shop offering braised delicacy when we were planning to visit Grand Yong Tofu on the same shop lot (Yes, it was closed and replaced with Shen).
Grilled Lamb Cutlets topped with eggplant caviar, dressed with garlic cream and sesame sauce. So soft and pleasing that it melts in your mouth. This is probably the best lamb we’ve ever tried and you can grab it at Feringgi Grill in Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & SPA in Penang.
