Rainbow Modern Western Cuisine

It’s hard to find any place where they do not serve MSG, artificial flavouring but only spices & herbs. Well, I found one in Penang, and it’s located in Tanjong Bungah, same row as Mom’s Kitchen where I’ve been before. It was a hot Saturday after visited the Canon Fair in down town, we both decided to drive around and see what to have for lunch. In fact, I’ve totally forgotten about this place where I’ve been receiving email invitation from them. When we reached it’s about 2 something, the place is quiet and all tables are empty. We both were a bit skeptical about the place, but still stepped into it. Look thru the menu and we realize most of the food that recommended is pretty reasonable and affordable even though taxes are charged. First, we have a plate of Garlic Bread (RM3-30) which served about 10 tiny pieces and the garlic butter which is home made or rather made to order. Followed by a bowl of Carrot & Pumpkin Soup (RM4-50). The soup base is fragrance, it’s full of

Many have blogged about this Sour Spicy Bee Hoon in town, and many had given good comment. I myself have been here for couple times on couple of occasions. And because of that, I insisted hubby should give it a try. Brought him there once on the weekend for breakfast. And he wasn’t really fond of cuz, that’s not his favourite and it’s not something like KTT or CKT kind of noodle. And guess what,… after he tasted a few spoon of the Sour Spicy Noodle Soup, he immediately fell in love with that. So, you can imagine how good is this pot of noodle! Second dish that I’ve ordered was the Steam Flat Noodle with Fish Meat. This is also another incredible noodle that no customers will miss this. Hmmm… a satisfying breakfast that we had!!! Yummy yummy!!! Thumbs up!

Him Heang 馨香餅家

What causes heavy traffic in Burmah Road?? Nope, it’s not the schools that along the road… not even road side stalls’ customer that causes that too!! The actual fact….. is this…. Him Heang!! Him Heang is a place where many tourists will swing by no matter how busy their schedules are. What are famous down here are their Tau Sah Peah (豆沙餅), Beh Teh Saw (馬蹄酥) & Phong Peah. They used to use lard as one of the ingredients, perhaps nowadays people are more health conscious and they are now using vegetable oil instead. I was told Him Heang was established in 1948, can you imagine it has been here for 61 years already. When I first bought the Tau Sah Peah, was only selling at RM5, then increased to RM6-50 and RM8-50. Guess how much per box are they selling now??? It’s RM9-50 per box, and yet, you could still see the stream of customers flowing into the shop. Happened that this is the box that I bought, there’s a defective one…. See!!

Burmah Road Wanton Mee

I think everybody knows there are a lot of good foods along Burmah Road in this beautiful island. Whether is at night or day… well, am going to share something about for the day. Think you are not finding the Chinese Pan Cake (Apom) stall that next to Union Primary School any strange. Well, do you know the Wanton Mee stall that next to it is equally good and famous?? Hubby told me its brief history in fact, before they shifted to Burmah Road, the stall was actually located at Bawasah Road and Nagore Road back lane. If you remember there was a funeral parlor down there which is next to Penang Plaza. Some how that funeral parlor shifted place and this stall also. When you’re out of idea what to have for lunch, you will tend to look for those comfort stalls, for example, this Burmah Road Wanton Mee. Since it’s a road side stall, you don’t get to see lots of tables and chairs. You will have to grab whatever it’s available for that point in time. Tables and chairs are all line along the

Every Friday Penang Bridge is always a nightmare for many people that want to be home early. And nobody is exception from this traffic madness, even with many Penangites had filed a complaint to the designated authority, some how, this problem just can’t solved. Well, for people like us best is to divert traffic and either go down town for a simple dinner and start the journey again or divert the route to the nearest mall for dinner or have a window shopping. Well, we both chose to have a simple meal in the mall. But then, come to think of it, it ain’t any simple anymore when you got to know we are actually having our dinner in Canton-I Restaurant, a truly Hong Kong cuisine restaurant. Of course, we didn’t go for anything pricey like Abalone Porridge ( 鮑魚粥 ) that costs RM38-00 per bowl. Instead, we have simple Wanton Mee and Rice. Hubby is always a gourmand person, he will sure order extra, whether it’s an extra plate of noodle or snacks. But this time, he had Steamed Pork & S

Seriously, you have no worries if you are starving in this island – The Pearl of Orient. Well, guess nobody will care for what am going to explain why… reason is just so simple, you can find food anywhere in the island, and you can have it around the clock. Now that Wi-Fi has become many households’ requirements, and certain bistro & café also get it fix due to customers’ requests. And you’ll see more of these people eating at these outlets too. Not sure is this the first outlet that serving 24 hours food for gluttons and surfers, but this is one of the hot spot for us who wants food and surfing at the same time. Let’s cut the craps, … it was late afternoon after running the weekly errands, hubby and I running out of idea what to have for lunch, in fact a late lunch. It’s just happened that we drove passed this place and have never ever thought of trying. But this time, it was so spontaneous, we both just parked our car outside the outlet and walked in with starving belly. Tho

Citrus Wine & Dine

In my recent visit to Ipoh, we had a great lunch in this place called Citrus Wine & Dine. I believe this is nothing to compare to the famous Indulgence which is owned by Julie Song . Well, not going to elaborate with Indulgence but this Citrus. I was told many pharmaceutical personnel, doctors, like to hold functions or company event in this place. Probably the price is reasonable and also quality food. It’s hard to find a place like that nowadays, it’s either food is lousy and price is high, or food is absolutely fantastic, and it’s pricey. Well, this is the place that caters for quality food and reasonable price – Citrus Wine & Dine. In fact, it’s a big group of us having lunch down here, thus, we didn’t order any of their Ala Carte food, but to go for their Set Lunch instead. In fact, their Set Lunch is satisfying, the food that serves are reasonable good, price is reasonable! For that matter, think I’ll go back again. Here’s what we have… Soup of the Day – Broccoli
