Chuan Heang Restaurant 全香茶餐室 (GPS: 5.73318,100.51112) in Bedong town is a Chinese Choo Char restaurant we always patronizing few years ago. It may not be the most hygienic restaurant but their dishes definitely stand out from others, including the signature Mantou (steamed bun), Thai-style pork knuckle, and deep fried baby chicken. The restaurant is easy to find as it is just located after Bedong’s traffic light if you are coming from Sungai Petani. Look for a Shell station opposite of the road and the restaurant is just on your left.
For those know us well, Wantan Mee is our favorite noodle. It was one weekend morning when we stumbled upon Chee Meng Cafe (GPS: 5.42129,100.33118) at Argyill Road, George Town, Penang. Did we see this shop before? No. So, we decided to give it a try, and we had no regret doing so as it was the first time we found out soup version of Wantan Mee tasted better than the usual dry Wan Tan Mee.
Craving for something spicy (and we mean paralyzing spicy, not the Hokkien-Mee-with-a-scope-of-sambal kind of spiciness) early in the morning? Head to Golden Bowl Cafetiam (GPS: 5.42081,100.32663) at New World Park/Batu Lanchang for a bowl of Tomyam noodle topped with a slice of cheese. Bring along a towel though.
“What is the most expensive breakfast you have tried?”. For us, it is not in any fancy Italian nor Michelin-starred Hong Kong Dimsum restaurant, but in a Chinese Bak Kut Teh (BKT) restaurant. Today, we bring you to Chai Chin 才进肉骨茶 restaurant (GPS: 4.22163,100.69361) in Sitiawan for its signature fish head and of course, the BKT. Is it worth the Cha-Ching? Let’s find out.
After Japanese cheese cake, Old Taste Cake a.k.a 鸡蛋糕 (Ji Dan Gao) from Tamsui 淡水 of Taiwan is now trending in Penang/Kuala Lumpur, from the one reproducing the recipe to the one franchising from Taiwan. Each of them is trying to grab a piece of cake while it is still hot. Either case, they share a common phenomenon – a Mekong river-long queue. Today, we bring you to Kulim for “Tam Sui Old Taste Cake Of Taiwan” (GPS: 5.37639,100.53808) – probably the first Taiwan-style fluffy old taste cake in Malaysia.
Tau Sar Pneah 豆沙饼, Hneoh Pneah 香饼, Beh Teh Saw 马蹄酥… these are just few traditional pastries from Ghee Hiang 义香 we buy since childhood days, be it as souvenir for friends visiting Penang or as own consumption. Today, the 160 years old naked baby is offering not just pastries and sesame oil, but also coffee products and a cafe called Teels Heritage which we will be covering in this article.
