Look Yuen Restaurant 樂園飯店

Have had heard of lots good comment about this place, and in fact, it’s famous for those people that live around that neighborhood. This shop has been around for many years, in fact, before the new fly over were built. I remembered I used to see this shop around whenever we used the old trunk road to travel down to Johor, to KL or to Ipoh. This shop is always full of people. It never came to my mind till my sis suggested let’s have dinner down there, as the “Domestic Minister” needs a break for the week. Well, what can we say more when there’s a strike, right? We were all pretty good in listening to the “Domestic Minister”, thus, without second thought, we drove all the way there for dinner. Thought this would be another place for our deary “Domestic Minister”, what impresses us was the food serving was extremely fast, it’s like on an express mode. You just don’t believe it; it can be so fast within few minutes. I wonder is this being ‘ISO audited’. Well, joke aside, we were told, th

Kheng Pin Café 群賓茶餐室

This coffee shop is full of people and the flow of people streaming in is basically non-stop. It’s like any other tourist spot in Penang that is a must visit place. And many people that came into this shop must order the 3 items that is famous for this café. Well, what is that then?? Hainan Chicken Rice 海南雞飯 , LoBak 卤肉 and Wantan Mee 雲吞麵 . As far as we know, the chicken rice stall has been operating since the eighties by an old couple whom assisted by their daughter then. As time goes by, the old couple passed the stall to their daughter, and since then the stall is getting renown from its smooth skin chicken, fresh tender juicy meat. Because of the old couple retirement, the daughter has to call back her husband whom is a shoe maker for a renown brands in Kuala Lumpur to come back to help out the business until today. One can recognized that they too are getting old, despite the brisk business; they still continue to provide the best to their customers. LoBak stall history… a hum

Chicago Rib House

The first Chicago Rib House was first established in Auto City Juru has closed down, it has opened its new wing in Gurney Plaza instead. One I could think of the stream of people that flowing into the mall is obviously better than Auto City and second the power of spending is some how greater in Penang compared to mainland. But it’s sad to see good places like that moving out to the island but can’t sustain in mainland. I honestly wonder how would other business lifelong business years in mainland or rather in Penang. I tend to see good restaurant closing down, those that I’d tried and even posted before. Anyway, good to have good rib restaurant in town, from the BBQ Rib that was previously located along Burmah Road has closed down, honestly I can’t find any good rib restaurant anymore. Of course, with Chicago Rib House open its wing in Gurney Plaza is definitely a good news for all the ribs lovers. I actually don’t have to boast about how good their food is or how attentive the

文昌海南雞飯 Wen Chang Hainan Chicken Rice

Hubby told me he heard from friends that this is one of the best Hainan Chicken Rice in town, and many people have to line up for order. Well known of the tender juicy meat and soft bones, as well as the Five Spices Meat (Loh Bak 卤肉 ). That’s make me have the temptation to try it out personally. Thus, one of the Saturday, we drove all the way from mainland to try this out. In fact, was more of convenient sake, we have to have our lunch down town before we could run our errands. We were there pretty early, and the stall was ready for business. I could smell the rice which was cooked with pine leaf (Pandan Leaf), and garlic. And also see many chickens regardless boiled or roasted hung up nicely on the stall. How could that stop people coming to eat here, right? Thus, we have the normal order, chicken and loh bak for lunch. Simple, yet delicious, how could anyone resist that, right?

32 Light Street Kopitiam

A shop that is opened only for 2 months plus has full of delighted food for its customers, it’s also located at the strategic location in down town too. Perhaps people that work around that area will have better opportunity to taste such good home cooked food. The shop opens from 8am to 6pm from Monday to Friday, and from 8am to 3pm on Saturday. Sunday is a rest day for them. Breakfast is not only variety but also value for money. Butter toast is only RM1-30; where else many ‘kopitiam’ style of café is charging RM2-00. The café here is also Wi-Fi provided, isn’t that a good news to many people with laptop carrying along all the time? Even not the bulky laptop but a small device like Blackberry is also benefited from that service. Since this is our 1st time, we have ordered their signature, Mutton Noodle (RM6-90) and Lam Mee (RM5-50). Both are tantalizing and tasty. Especially the mutton is absolutely tender and juicy. We believe it was cooked in a pressure cooker for a long hour,
