Taiwan Bull, 台湾公牛

“Beef Noodles – originated from Chinese Tang Dynasty and created by the tribe of Hwei can be traced back to a rich history exceeding centennial. In the year of 1949, it was originally introduced into Taiwan by the expelled Chinese soldiers in order to sooth the feeling of homesickness towards their far-off homeland the consumption of Beef Chunks signifies not merely the satiable filling of stomach but also carries the meaning of remembrance towards their love ones with a mixture of affection. For Taiwanese, Beef Noodles has proven to be a taste of perfection and magnificent flavour and is namely inseparable in the mainstream of Taiwan food culture. Thus, it considered beyond the significant of “Street Snack” simplicity. Throughout the years, the scrumptious culinary & tastefulness of beef noodles has managed to penetrate to the heart of Taiwanese but also aiming to trigger the taste bud of peoples from all over the world.” The above short and brief history illustrated by Taiwan Bu

Ipoh Wooley Foodcourt

Image
It was a pleasant holiday after Pangkor Laut , we drove all the way to Ipoh for a weekend break. It was 4 something and hubby was feeling hungry, thus, we stopped by this Wooley Food Court which is located in Ipoh Garden, if am not mistaken it’s some where near the Shell petrol station. I remembered clearly they used to have good ice kacang before they renovated last year. But then after, it is not as good as it is before. I was a bit disappointed. Probably I was yearning for it for a long time. They used to give toasted ground nuts and not those pre-packing one, which is salty and the taste is not fresh. With that, I have actually downgraded their ice kacang standard. Hubby was having their Wanton Noodle. According to him, it wasn’t that good at all… he rather go for Penang Wanton Noodle instead. Isn’t this meal a bit disappointing?

Dome Café

From now till Feb 7, you’ll see lots of people in shopping mall with 1 objective, and that’s buying new clothes for Chinese New Year. Of course, am one of them in the crowd. Good thing about shopping mall is, everything is under one roof, café, departmental store, Cineplex, book stores, slimming centre, hair salons, boutiques, etc. By lunch time, you’ll see another crowd of people going into café, food court or even restaurants, chain food store for food. What we had was, something simple and yet many of you have blogged about it too. What strike my mind to go to Dome for lunch? I actually craving for their vegetarian pasta, and I didn’t realize that they have changed their menu. And I don’t want to try other than pasta, so I ordered their Spicy Olio but Vegetarian style. It was spicy and I quite like the taste of it. It is something different and special, unlike the normal one with tomato sauce. I realize nowadays many outlets are trying new food, new cooking. I guess that’s the w

Gelatissimo, The Garden-Mid Valley

Gelatissimo – The Real Taste of Italia Ice Cream Last year Christmas as in the recent Christmas, we had our family trip to KL for holiday. Basically the trip wasn’t like what we normally did, but makan instead. 2nd day in KL, we decided to visit The Garden , a new phase of Mid Valley, a high end shopping complex in Mid Valley. I believe their anchor tenant is Isetan and Robinson, well, I may be wrong. Anyway, while we were walking to The Garden, I saw this ice cream counter at the entrance. Then I look at my sister, she was suggesting why don’t we give it a try. Cuz, we have tried Baskin Robins, Häagen Dazs & Lekka-Lekka, but not this. By looking at the choices, do you think we could pick our favourite?? All of us were struggling what to choose. Taste wise, it’s kinda similar to Lekka-Lekka, cuz, both are Italian Ice Cream. Flavour wise, I guess I still prefer Lekka-Lekka compared to Gelatissimo. Anyway, who cares right, … as long as am not paying for it… [LOL] cuz, you know

Padang Hawker Delight

When you yearning for supper and yet you do not know where to head to. Well, let me introduce this place to you. This place no stranger to anyone in Penang. It’s a big football field that in between Jalan Dato’ Keramat & Jalan Anson. This football field is actually next to a BhP petrol station. What’s famous down there… well, there are a lot of food down there. Even they have stall selling dim sum, char koay teow, hokkien mee, koay teow th’ng, and so on. We took one of our dinner at the ‘padang’, and that night hubby and I were extremely hungry, first get our seat, second hubby quickly went and ordered 2 bowl of wanton mee and a bowl of wanton. The noodle is tender, and it is not soggy at all; but slightly oily to my liking. And I could see lots of lards in the bowl of noodle as well as the wanton. 富貴麵, I don’t know what is it… and this stall actually caught my attention. Without second thought I actually asked hubby get the order for me. Tada… guess what? It’s actually Lam

I think many have heard about CRC Restaurant , the Chinese Recreation Club in Jalan Padang Victoria. I only know this restaurant cook delicious Cantonese Cuisine, and also Teow Chew Cuisine. One of their famous is the Lobster Birthday Noodle. That plate of noodle at least costs RM100 and above minimum. Anyway, I didn’t order that expensive noodle, but something simple and nice. It was after viewing the E&O show houses, all of us, were hungry and didn’t know what to have for late lunch. Suddenly, all of us craving for Chinese Food, then, my sister suggested this place for lunch. So, how simple is simple for the lunch?? [grin] Simple as in one steam fish. Chicken Dice in Claypot with Salted Fish. Stir Fried Green Spinach. And, a plate of Steam Beancurd with Mushroom and Chicken Dice spread on top of the beancurds. The dishes that serving are delicious, and big serving. Especially the Chicken Dice in Claypot with Salted Fish, it was such a nice smell when they served. The bean

Teow Chew Meng 潮洲铭小食馆, Chai Leng Park

When it comes to some time you have no idea what to eat anymore, will you go for something that you've not try before? Well, I would! I've tried Teow Chew Meng before but not this main outlet in Chai Leng Park. And since, Dad and Mom have not try this before, tonight was the first time I brought them here. I was told this is the main outlet before those branches were opened in Penang Island. I was told they even established a branch in Petaling Jaya also. According to the owner, that branch was manned by his sister. What's famous in Teow Chew Meng ??? Of course is their Mee Sua Tao (Wheat Vermicelli 面线糊). And their Seafood Porridge (海鲜粥), the porridge could go up to RM50 per bowl. Reason is because they add abalone, sea cucumber, and other good stuff. I was skeptical that Dad & Mom didn’t like the Mee Sua Tao, glad that they both like it. Apart from the two signature dishes, we also ordered a plate of TCM Fried Rice (潮州铭炒饭). Apple Salad Bean Curd. Three Tastes Oyst

Häagen Dazs, Auto City

H a p p y N e w Y e a r !!! H a p p y 2 0 0 8 ! ! ! So, what did you do on 31st Dec 2007?? Were you at the count down party? Were you spending quality time with family? Were you staying at home doing nothing but sleep? Well, never mind, just think what you think is worth the value for you, no matter you were staying alone at home sleeping or attending count down party down the streets, right? Well, hubby and I are old enough to join the young ones for that party, but, we had good time having ice cream. Since its New Year Eve, we took a slow drive across the straits and landed in Auto City. Thought of land in any café or bistro for a drink that’s what we thought to do so. While we were looking for a place to settle down, we both saw this outlet in Auto City. Yup, that’s right! It’s Häagen Dazs Ice Cream. This is indeed a good news for all Häagen Dazs fans in Butterworth. With this outlet, people in Butterworth or rather mainland need not cross the straits anymore. Isn’t it good
