N-City (GPS: 5.61833,100.47570) at Sungai Petani is a new commercial area opposite of Bakar Arang’s Sharp Roxy factory and is under construction. We were told that there was a cafe there. When we first arrived, we were a bit resisted to get into the cafe as it shares the same unit with Sales Gallery of N-City (We had phobia with hard-selling sales persons). Surprisingly, it was a positive experience with cozy and quiet environment. We even enjoyed looking at building model.
Lexis Suites Penang (GPS: 5.28694,100.23289) – the prominent hotel in Teluk Kumbar, has 222 suites and is perhaps the only 5-star hotel at south part of Penang island.

Thai boot noodle was blooming few years back but the recent trend was moving south. Whatsaeb (GPS: 5.41472,100.33433) at Carnarvon Street, George Town, Penang, made a comeback by re-inventing the traditional small dish serving on boat to a normal side noodle… at least now kitchen crews can wash lesser bowls.

We recently re-visited it again for International Buffet.
