Strategically located along Tanjung Tokong’s main road and right in front of Hotel Sentral Seaview, Viva Local Food Haven (GPS: 5.46270,100.30512) is always crowded with both local and foreign customers. Thanks to our friends who stayed in Hotel Sentral Seaview recently, we had a chance to revisit the food court after our initial visit 8 years ago.
Recently, we noticed that some restaurants, including The Bungalow in Lone Pine Hotel, like to pour seafood freshly stir-fried from kitchen onto customer’s dining table and ask the customers to eat them using bare hands. No, they are not crazy but this is a new trend to share and enjoy seafood without any cutlery. Just hands.
We can’t really remember when is our last time visiting Fort Cornwallis – a historical site nearby ferry terminal in Penang island. Recently, we had a chance to visit it, not for the sake of visiting cannons there, but a cafe hidden inside the park – namely Kota Dine & Coffee.
Ramadan is around the corner. This year, Eastin Hotel Penang – the business hotel in Bayan Lepas, Penang is the first hotel we visited for its Ramadan buffet, namely Eastin Ku – Kampung Ku preview session.
Nyonya Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik – one of the best items we sampled during our visit to the new Relish restaurant (Halal) at Gurney Paragon, Penang. It comes with our favorite Keropok Lekor – traditional fish cracker from East Coast. A uniquely Malaysian cuisine hardly found in other regions of the world.
Eastern and Oriental (E&O) Hotel is pleased to offer you a wide range of local and western cuisines at highest quality possible.
