Promenade is a new commercial-residential building located between D’Piazza and Elit Avenue, so new that the parking is still free and only few shops are currently opened, including Yin’s WholeFood Manufactory (GPS: 5.32398,100.28224). Yin’s latest establishment is a “cafe+organic shop” concept in which other than dining in, you can shop for organic products at Zenxin Organic Food Malaysia next to the cafe.
The Leaf is one of the pioneers in Penang promoting healthy cuisine in modern cafe environment. The first outlet was opened at Lebuh Penang, George Town and we visited it couple of times since year 2012. For Bayan Lepas folks, now you have a nearer option as the second outlet (GPS: 5.41859,100.34114) is now opened at D’Piazza, Bayan Baru, Penang.
What to eat in Taiping? Answer: Goreng Pisang (Banana Fritter). No joking! Located in Taiping old town is P.S.L Goreng Pisang (GPS: 4.85269,100.74118) operated by a lady owner for about 30 years, from a roadside stall to a dedicated shop using only quality bananas. We were told that some customers even ordered 100 pieces back home.
It was one evening when we had an appointment at food truck corner of Chulia Lane (Lorong Chulia). As usual, we departed early to avoid traffic,jam, so early that we had enough time to visit both Kuan Yin Temple and 20 Chulia Lane Cafe (GPS: 5.41901,100.33768) before our appointment. The cafe occupies ground floor of Penang Hainan Tan Clan Association. Parking-wise, not sure about you but we were grateful that we usually found a slot along the narrow Chulia Lane.
For the month of August and September, the durian cream puff is the highlight at the Rasa Deli of Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa (GPS: 5.48000,100.25472), Batu Feringgi, Penang. Even since the first batch of durian cream puffs made their debut at the Rasa Deli, the dainty delicacies have been literally flying off the bakery shelves so quickly.
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.
BBQ is perhaps one of the activities we enjoyed back in school days in which a group of friends bring along raw ingredients, drinks, paper plates/cups, and charcoal to setup fire in an open space or BBQ corner in some apartments. This group activity is getting lesser and lesser as we started working or moving into city. In Penang islalnd, if you miss the smokey chicken, Beep Beep Q is the answer.
Occasionally we received emails of some great deals. Instead of keeping them, we decided to share out with our readers. Note that deals usually end fast and old deals may no longer available. This list will be updated whenever we receive new deals for both products and services.
Rushing for school assignment? Hate seeing boss early in the morning or just gather with friends? We spent few days compiling a list of Starbucks outlets in Malaysia and re-organized them into lightweight tabular form for the ease of our readers as a reference.
