This is probably the freshest Salmon Fillet we’ve ever tried. It comes with pommes puree (another fancy name for mashed potato), asparagus, dill cream (a tangy sauce), and surrounded by tarragon oil. The salmon fillet is crispy-outside, soft-inside and hardly has any fishy taste commonly found in frozen seafood product. This is one of the set lunch‘s main courses in The O’lives at Pulau Tikus, Penang.
In Penang, there are two types of hot pot (or commonly known as steamboat) – buffet or set meal. While buffet style is usually value for money (provided you are big eater), it usually lacking of premium seafood such as crab and big prawns. Even some set meals only offer medium size prawns at most. The steamboat in E&O Hotel is, however, the most luxurious steamboat we have ever tried.
It was one weekday evening when we were in the rush to visit Logos Hope – a cruise with floating book fair in it at Swettenham Pier. Before reaching there, we decided to have our dinner nearby and surprisingly, we stumbled upon this newly opened Sumo-Sumo Japanese fast food restaurant at Bishop Street, Penang (near Route 9/GohKaki).
Jawa Mee for RM2? Yes, this was the promotion item by 一棵树 Vegetarian Kitchen in conjunction with its opening recently. More important, it tasted as good as those non-vegetarian version. We particularly liked the silky smooth sweet and sour gravy made of sweet potato and tomatoes.
A cheesecake that represents Penang? Mon Délice Patisserie is a rare cake house in which it only serves quality French cakes and pastries. We recently visited its new outlet which was moved from Nagore Road to Jalan Servis. The new outlet consists of only four tables and fortunately we managed to grab a seat when we arrived. While some customers were celebrating birthdays, we came here just for our itchy mouth.
Chai Diam Ma is hidden in a row of heritage building at Lebuh Queen, George Town, Penang. It can be difficult to spot at first. Coincidentally, the owner is also called Ms. Queen. Note that this is not a grocery shop but a cafe cum art space.

泰式酸酐蒸海鲜 Thai Lemon Steamed Seafood – the dish you will find in almost all table of Khidthung Thai Seafood Tomyam Restaurant 想你泰 at Perak Road, Penang. Yes, it is their best seller. The Kapa clams and squid are steamed in sweet, sour and spicy broth using charcoal. The longer it boils, the sweeter the broth.
Chili Crab! One no need to travel all the way to Singapore to get this one. It is available at Equatorial Hotel, Bukit Jambul, Penang and is also one of their signature dishes. The flower crabs are stir-fried with sweet and spicy sauce right before the buffet started to ensure the freshness and juiciness of the food. Yes, this is still a Buka Puasa buffet review and perhaps the last one for this year.
