It is ashamed that half of our life has gone and we still do not aware that there is a shoplot in Island Park – the residential area between Island Glade and Greenlane, not to mention we almost missed The Mideum Coffee (GPS: 5.39125,100.30061) there offering insta worthy waffles.
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.
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.
You read it right! After full restoration in year 2012, the legendary Hainanese restaurant is now under new management promising same nostalgic dining environment, better Hainanese food. We recently revisited the “new new” Loke Thye Kee (GPS: 5.417031, 100.329880) for Chicken Chop, Fish Gulai Tumis, Yam Duck, Choon Piah and etc prepared by a F&B company with more than 9 years experience.
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.
