For us, dining in a Western restaurant with dim environment usually mean one thing – the owner doesn’t want you to look at your wallet clearly, so that you will be less painful when paying the bill. Similar environment can be found in The Cruises Steak House. Luckily, their set lunch menu works well as a “painkiller” for cheap labor like us.
Red Hott, Bayan Lepas, Penang
Red Hott (formerly Red Hot) at The One (opposite of Mayang Mall/D’Piazza), Bayan Baru, Penang is the only hot dog specialist in Penang and perhaps in Malaysia as well. Our first visit was back in April 2013.
You want soup for what?
There are occasions in which you will be given tough questions, even by the restaurant’s host. There were only few reasons I could think of when a Bak Kut Teh restaurant’s asked you why you need more soup:
- Use as holy water and put it in bath tub
- Wash my car
- Take it back, reverse engineer and open a new Bak Kut Teh shop.
Fisherman Wharf @ Sunshine Square 东海渔村海鲜餐厅
Area around Sunshine Square is a great place to work. There are many restaurants around. The only cuisines not available are “Choo Char” and dim sum. Last month, the first “problem” solved as Fisherman Wharf 东海渔村海鲜餐厅 initially opened at Bayan Lepas had opened a branch in Sunshine Square (the area where Nanyang computer shop previously opened). There was RM2 offer for certain dishes last month so we took that opportunity to pay it a visit.
Demax @ D’Piazza
Chinese New Year is all about re-union. A group of food bloggers, including me, were having “re-union” in one of the restaurants at D’Piazza, Bayan Baru. Food bloggers come and go (some gave up blogging, some simply :imdead: due to food poisoning). It would be grateful if similar faces are still there during new year.
Home’s Cafe Revisited
What a hazy weekend. If you want MC, just go out jogging for 1 hour and your wish will be granted. Weather like this should stay at home… such as Home’s Cafe at D’Piazza, Bayan Baru. Yeah, we visited it again after hearing that some items had been improved.
