If our memory serves us well, this is probably our second time visiting the family- and kids-friendly Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La (GPS: 5.47631,100.25124) operated since year 1979. Instead of jumping into their signature swimming pools, we visited its Garden Cafe for “Around The World” buffet dinner.
As a food blogger, occasionally our eyes are sharper than normal persons especially when hungry. Recently, while having our ordinary (and boring) lunch routine, we spotted a “food truck” parked not at the ground floor, but first floor of Krystal Point, Bayan Lepas (GPS: 5.33095,100.29876). Feeling curious, we decided to pay it a visit on the same evening.
By The Sea Lifestyle Store 沿海地带生活馆 is one of the first few cafes we visited in Raja Uda with its signature sea-themed interior and sandy floor. Recently, the cafe was moved to a new location at Jalan Ong Yi How, not far away from its previous location. We decided to pay it a visit after half a decade since we first visited it.
You probably heard of “steamboat” and “Korean BBQ”. How about “Mookata“? Mookata is probably originated from Thailand and is the combination of Korean BBQ and Chinese hot pot. In other words, you can grill and cook your favorite food on a unique pan. Mookata was in Thailand for more than 25 years before spreading to Malaysia and Singapore. Today, we bring you to a – Tao Kae Noi Mookata (GPS: 5.41501,100.32055) offering such delectable food.
Other than Serdang in Kedah state, Kuala Sepetang near Taiping is another place for fried porridge and even better, it is covered with seafood fresh from fisherman boats stone’s throw away. We visited Kuala Sepetang Seafood Porridge 十八丁海鲜粥 restaurant and was blown away by the quantity and quality of the seafood.
Assam Laksa is a no stranger to Penangites as it is probably the most popular hawker food other than Char Koay Teow. The sour and spicy soup noodle mainly made of fish and tamarind (a.k.a assam in Malay) is also our favorite food. Fried Laksa, however, is an eye-opener for us. Today we bring you to Yan Yam Cafe 炎茶餐室 (GPS: 5.41289,100.32257) for this creative dish.
Tired of commercialized chicken rice with arrogant attitude, we decided to try modern cafe in Ipoh instead. JJ Cafe (GPS: 4.58354,101.09360) is an accidental discovery and it surprised us with its coffee, Swiss roll and more important, the sinful Signature “Siew Yuk” Pasta. Since then, we visited the outlet twice despite 160 km away from Penang.
In Penang, fish noodle is a “magic” street food in which there are always some customers patronizing it regardless the price or the taste. Recently, we noticed a new fish porridge/noodle stall – Kinsbay 港口 (GPS: 5.32662,100.28920) setup at Jalan Mahsuri nearby Sunshine Square, Bayan Baru, Penang so we decided to give it a try.
