Jiapapa Hometown Delight 呷饱饱


Craving for Laksa one afternoon, we were told by our friend that there was a new restaurant in Taman Lip Sin offering the local delicacy along with other dishes during lunch hour. Without further ado, we visited it on the same day as well.

Bistro Tang @ Ren I Tang Heritage Inn


Previously, we introduced a warehouse-converted cafe in George Town, Penang. Today, we bring you to another restaurant which was converted from a Chinese Medical Hall – Bistro Tang in Ren I Tang Heritage Inn at Gat Penang Street (toward the end of Little India), George Town.

Relish, Gurney Paragon, Penang

Nyonya Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik

Nyonya Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik – one of the best items we sampled during our visit to the new Relish restaurant (Halal) at Gurney Paragon, Penang. It comes with our favorite Keropok Lekor – traditional fish cracker from East Coast. A uniquely Malaysian cuisine hardly found in other regions of the world.

Ipoh Makanthon 1: Poh Piah and Chicken Hor Fun

Kong Heng Restaurant 光兴茶室

After leaving Taiping, it took another hour to reach Ipoh. Instead of continue eating, I stopped by Perak Cave to pray for better career (I really need that). Then, I drove around Ipoh town looking for a coffee shop. I stumbled upon this restaurant, in which its appearance told me that it had some famous food inside.

Laksa and Hokkien Mee (and Loh Bak)

Jalan Bahru Laksa and Hokkien Mee

Another laksa stall I frequently visited in Balik Pulau is the one at Jalan Bahru, or better known as Laksa and Hokkien Mee house since they are selling both items at their resident house during weekend at a reasonable price of RM2.80 each. Continue reading

Laksa with Pai Tee @ Balik Pulau


July is a happening month in Balik Pulau thanks to durian session. Other than that, it is good to try out Balik Pulau’s laksa as well. We had a “Laksa Jiak Ba Ba” trip last month and one of the stalls we found was a resident house along the windy road to Teluk Bahang.

Seafood Ginger Milk & Laksa @ RotiBakar

Kafe RotiBakar University Place, Penang

Oops! Since when RotiBakar imposed “No Photographing” sign? This is great disappointment especially when I wanna promote them (for free). Anyway, it had been a long time since I been there. I heard that the menu had changed and their new item – Seafood Ginger Milk 海鲜牛奶薑 (RM6.90++) was quite yummy. So, here I am again. (By the way, if you see photos here, this means I neglected the sign.)

Nan Guang’s Kim Laksa 南光金叻沙


This is another quick-and-dirty review. It was one Thursday afternoon when I “snake” at home, and a friend pinged me asking me where to eat for lunch. I am having headache in comparing a series of laksa I tried at Balik Pulau during Durian Session (Jun/July). To be fair, I planned to revisit them again before writing review.

Laksa Kelang Lama


On 10/Oct, a group of floggers did a crazy thing… visited three restaurants in one day (this reminded me of an old video clip in which the crazy guys visited 23 locations in 24 hours for 25 food in Penang… let’s do it one day, floggers). Getting back to business, one of the locations we visited that day was the famous laksa in Kelang Lama, Kulim. Let’s see how’s the laksa tasted like compared to the one in Penang.

Some say that working in Bayan Baru is very lucky compared to working in Bayan Lepas Free Trade Zone (FTZ) as there are many restaurants around, such as KFC, McDonald, Dragon-Y, Secret Recipe, Pizza Hut, Home Cafe, and Old Town Cafe. They are so near that I can actually crawl to those places. Few weeks ago we had a new restaurant opened at D’Piazza, a commercial cum residential building near to PISA. It is D’Food Garden. Again, it is walking distance for me so let’s crawl there and review.
