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.
Due to distance issue and a little narrow road of Perak Road, Penang, I seldom visit restaurants there until recently. There are some changes and developments, including the bye-bye of O2Leaf (replaced with Post Cafe) and new Hungry Fish cafe which we are going to review in this post.
KhunThai Restaurant is no stranger to Penangites especially those staying in Butterworth. It was one evening I noticed a new branch opened in Penang island at Teluk Kumbar (right before Hai Boey restaurant). Last Sunday, we paid it a visit.
It was raining session recently and it would be nice if I could enjoy a hot bowl of soup in cold evening. Yes, you can do so by visiting this Tang Yen (Glutinous Rice Ball) stall at Magazine Road (more known as “First Road” (头条路) by local Chinese), opposite of Traders Hotel.
I was wondering where to get dry bak kut teh in Penang island, and my friend recommended me this stall located opposite of Tesco Extra Sungai Dua, inside Seong Huat Coffee Shop 祥发美食餐室.
Located next to famous snake temple in Penang is a coffee shop called Yong Yao 永耀茶餐室 having food stalls which can be counted by one hand. Perhaps the most popular stall is a stall selling steamed rice at RM4.50 each.
