Break n Eat Cafe @ Elit Avenue, Penang

Exterior

With restaurants come and go in Elit Avenue, Bayan Baru, Penang, sometimes we think our “Publish this post” button is equivalent to “Close this business” in which restaurants closed for good (for whatever reasons) the moment we publish our post. Break n Eat Cafe (GPS: 5.32211,100.28222), however, is a dark horse.

Nyonya Delights Cafe @ Victoria Street, Penang

Penang White Coffee

Wake up early in the morning during weekend and looking for breakfast in Penang island? Other than Dim Sum and coffee shops, there are not many choices especially if you are looking for a cozy cafe for a sip of coffee. Located few shops away from Da Shu Xia Seafood Restaurant 大树下海鲜饭店 at Victoria Street, Nyonya Delights Cafe (GPS: 5.41397,100.33947) is an accidental discovery and since then, we visited it three times for breakfast.

Vege Delight @ Arena Curve, Penang

Since Arena Curve near Olive Tree Hotel imposed paid parking system, cheapskates like us seldom visit this new commercial building in Bayan Baru. Still you can park your vehicle outside the private compound for free. Fortunately, Vege Delight (GPS: 5.32601,100.28006) in Arena Curve is located just opposite of Arang Coffee and we walked our way to this new restaurant one evening for some “Choo Char” dishes in vegetarian way.

Pacific West/Golden Fresh Christmas Bash

Christmas Decoration

[17-December-2016] For frequent grocery shoppers, you may heard of Pacific West – the premium frozen seafood brand under Golden Fresh with light blue packaging.  Living in The Pearl of the Orient, to be honest, we seldom purchase frozen seafood as fresh seafood can be obtained easily around the island. Recently, we were fortunate enough to be invited to Golden Fresh factory at Butterworth, Penang to celebrate Christmas and to witness the making of the premium seafood.
