We visit Queensbay Mall at Bayan Lepas, Penang almost every month and this is our first time visiting Menya Miyabi since they open for business on December 2013. The shop is located at the first floor toward the wing where Daiso and Maybank are located. We regret that we only visited this ramen shop recently as it is one of the best ramen shops in the region.
TaiwanBull should not be a stranger for Queensbay old timer. Previously, it is located at lower ground floor. Now, it is relocated to Queens Street (third floor, north zone) of the mall. At the same time, the Chinese name is changed from 台湾公牛 to 台食煮艺 to better reflect the owner’s passion to serve various kind of Taiwanese food to customers and not only on beef products.
“Master Huang”, a label telling you which chef prepared this dish so that you can complain to the right chef in case the food suck. This is one of the uniqueness I found in Xuan Xin – a new restaurant (opposite of SenQ store) opened in Queensbay Mall.
Last time, whenever my friend asked me for a good place for steamboat, I could just recall those open-air steamboat+BBQ places around town areas. They were relatively reasonable, but you definitely 101% need to take bath after the meal due to oily environment. Since early this year, my friends and I found another “steamboat” place – Lolipot.
Selamat Hari Raya.
Do you have this question when going to Queensbay – “What should I eat in Queensbay?”. It is not because the restaurants are limited, but cheap labor like me can’t afford most of the restaurants there. One day, I was shopping for a blender there and think of the same question for my dinner.
This restaurant name is catchy – in Chinese it sounds like you need to reserve first before dining there. Situated in previous Swenswen’s lot (next to Sakae Sushi) in Queensbay was a new high class Taiwanese restaurant called Xian Ding Wei 鲜定味. I first visited it on 30-Mar-2010. Cheap labor like me was not able to visit it again to cover more aspects so I might just post the “first glance” now.
Updated 17-Jul-2013: This Kenny Rogers outlet was closed.
Quarter Chicken with Original Sauce
Those living in the cities should be familiar with Kenny Rogers Roasters restaurant. Its slogan: “Less fat… less salt… less calories…” may attract customers looking for healthier chicken meals. In Penang, I had visited the branch in Bukit Jambul Complex and Queensbay Mall. The one in Bukit Jambul Complex has to wait longer even though there is no customer, while the chicken in Queensbay Mall is smaller.
