Our first encounter with Thai coffee was when we were in Changmai for holiday trip in year 2014. We visited Wawee for a cup of coffee while walking near university district. The coffee shop is similar to Starbucks with air-conditioned environment, soft music in the background and WIFI, allowing customers to online for various purposes. Today, we introduce you another Thai coffee – Doi Chaang.
Telur Ikan Masak Lemak – the daily special not found in the menu. This is not an ordinary fish dish as “Telur Ikan” means fish eggs and is cooked with coconut milk. The exotic fish egg has an unfamiliar “sandy” texture in which we believe most of us need some time to adapt to it. This is just one of 70+ dishes found in Eastin Hotel Penang.
It was a long Saturday in which we had to work from nine to six. Our eyes were like Mashimaro when we arrived at Thai Original Boat Noodle – a restaurant we decided to give it a try when venturing in Teras Jaya Business Park at Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang. Our eyes immediately opened after having a sip of the soup.
Enough of soya bean! Time for main course! Located at a walking distance were two Nga Choi Kai (Bean Sprout Chicken) shops opened side-by-side – Lou Wong (老黄) and Onn Kee (安记). I had visited Lou Wong last time so this time I paid Onn Kee a visit.
When I mentioned “the best” restaurant, there must be another “not-so-best” restaurant (NOTE: It still much depends on person’s taste bud). Funny Mountain soya bean was actually not the first soya bean stall I tried in Ipoh. The first stall I tried there was Lai Kee 黎记, which is a stone throw away. To be fair, I revisited this stall on the same day I visited Funny Mountain just to compare the taste.
You will like Ipoh if you like to enter holes… uh… I mean visiting caves. There are many limestone caves for tourists like me. After visiting some of them, my breakfast was gone and it was time for food hunting again. This time, I stumbled upon a small stall behind a shop with a funny name – Funny Mountain 奇峰.
