Visiting Penang’s “Avatar” at Tanjung Tokong? Why not stopping by 70+ years old’s Pearl Garden Cafe 海珠屿海鲜 (GPS: 5.46404,100.30792) for some fresh and juicy seafood? Their menu is pretty limited (seriously, we don’t recall they have a menu) featuring simple cooking methods (usually salt-baked something something) with the intention to retain the original flavor of the seafood at its best.
Vantage is a new shop lot near to Straits Quay, Tanjung Tokong, Penang. At this moment, only few shops are opened, with one of them is Asiatique, a new semi fine dining restaurant specialized in fusion cuisine. Good news is that ample parking space is available for free (at least for now), which is very rare in Penang island.
:gongxi: Happy new year! If you ask me how I celebrate my new year? Basically just had BBQ at friend’s house, drink some red wines, went back hometown, and became camera man for my friend’s ROM. Last month, it was a bit special as Straits Quay, a new high class shopping cum apartment complex, just opened in Tanjung Tokong, Penang.
Sometimes in the evening I went for hiking at Youth Park. Driving all the way up to Youth Park took some times so I might as well enjoy my dinner somewhere around there. One of the stalls I tried was Mount Erskine’s Hainan Western Food 白云山西餐, a.k.a temple western food.
Before going to Copthorne Orchid Hotel for Thai Buffet, Criz and I did stop by at an apartment in Tanjung Tokong for…. Hakka Coffee! It was recommended by Criz and seriously I finally found an excellent home-made coffee in Penang, not to mention the crispy aromatic home-made coconut egg jam sandwiches (a.k.a Roti Bakar).
Char Moey (Fried Porridge) – A dish hard to find in some areas, is now available in Tanjung Tokong . Unlike normal porridge, it is mildly fried to brown color with pork and the fragrant from wok. I was introduced by my friend to try it one day.
