A bowl of crystal clear Yong Tau Fu 酿豆腐 soup on a rainy day? Selasih Hakka Cafe 喜拉熙客家人美食堂 (GPS: 5.37506,100.53625) is your best choice. A cookie for you if you are able to find this restaurant hidden in Kulim.
With modern and relaxing ambient, Carbo & Bites (GPS: 5.33890,100.30478) can easily give visitors misconception that it is a cafe with gourmet coffee, chicken chop and pasta at minimum but in reality, it is not the case.

With restaurants come and go in Elit Avenue, Bayan Baru, Penang, sometimes we think our “Publish this post” button is equivalent to “Close this business” in which restaurants closed for good (for whatever reasons) the moment we publish our post.

After Thai restaurants, Vietnamese restaurants show significant grow in Penang in recent years. Saigon House Cuisine (GPS: 5.42152,100.33164) is located at Sri Bahari Road (same road in which The Ship and Foong Wei Heong Restaurant 风味小食馆 are located) occupying a unit of the renovated heritage shoplot. It was one evening when we were craving for Tomyam and planned to visit a Thai Fusion Cafe at Sri Bahari Road, just to find out that the cafe was under renovation. As a result, we walked few shops away and stumbled upon this Vietnamese restaurant. No Thai, Vietnamese also OK.

Now, how should we classify this restaurant? Dim Sum or “Choo Char” restaurant?
