8. Restoran Mohd Rafee, Jalan Burma, Pulau Tikus, Penang

I used to love their kuah campur and banjir so much that I experimented with take-away, in hoping that all of the gravy will be absorbed into the rice. Hm...wrong move. Eat here instead:)

Hanazen @ Jaya One, PJ: One Of My Best Japanese Lunch:)

After a long hiatus from my food blogging due to my busy schedule, I was 'moved' to briefly blog about this Japanese restaurant that I tried recently. After all, good things are meant to be shared, right?

Some Japanese restaurants in KL/ Selangor are popular, some are nice...but those that are nice AND popular aren't many. Also, don't be deceived by those Japanese restaurants that open branches one after another because their taste varies (and they often taste much worse compared to their flagship/ main restaurant). Why? It's most probably due to poor quality control as they trying to rake in as much profit as they can with their 'namesake popular' Japanese restaurant.

Sushi to Unagi Zen (Sushi @ Roasted Unagi Set), RM65. How wonderful to be able to have my sushi and roasted eel in one me the trouble ordering different sushi and overeating (if I ordered all the sushi separately, which always come in twos, hehe).

The Worst Restaurant In The Garden, Mid Valley City: Alexis Kitchen & Bar? Two-Thumbs Down...'s been awhile since I blogged about some expensive eateries. I wonder why? Perhaps I was devastated and disappointed with Antipodean (Breakfast @ Antipodean Cafe, Bangsar, KL: Good At Overpricing Foods, Best For Nothing!)? Anyway, I'd been trying out a few highly recommended eateries lately. Which one I tried? How was it? How is the ending?!

Alexis Kitchen & Bar, The Garden @ Mid Valley City. When we first entered Alexis, a waiter asked us, 'Smoking or non-smoking?' HELLO!! You're not allowed to smoke here! I think The Garden must look into this, so is the Government too! It's against the law to smoke in an enclosed public area, HELLO!!! Not a good start.

New World Park @ Georgetown, Penang: A Food Court That Actually Have Good Foods, Not Just Mediocre!

A quick shout out for my favorite food court in Penang, the New World Park Food Court @ Georgetown, Penang.
As I'd written above, the foods here are actually good! Kudos!

Cendol from one of the dessert stall here. Another must try is the mango ABC or mixed fruits ABC

Woo Pin Fish Head Noodle @ Taman Danau Desa, KL: Delicious Fish Head & Fish Paste Noodle In KL!

When it comes to the description of healthy foods...for a Chinese chap, it's usually comprise of a few commonly acceptable statements such as:
Fish is always healthier than meat
Soup is better than eating 'kon-lo'/ dry
Heaty food better than 'cold' based foods

Woo Pin's Fish Paste Bihun Noodle (RM7)

Snow Beer @ Church Street Cafe, Georgetown, Penang: It's Just COLD Beer, So Misleading!!!!@#$%

Just a short note on this much hyped 'snow beer', especially this one from Church Street Cafe, Georgetown, Penang.

Penang Free School Muar Chee @ Medan Selera Taman Free School, Georgetown, Penang:

Firstly, some food education first...what is 'muar chee'?

Muar Chee
Some called it snacks, some called it dessert but I think you can eat it anytime you want. It's made from glutinuous rice, which are sticky. The glutinuous rice is then cut into small pieces and mixed with nuts, sesame seeds and sugar. The outer sticky layers of the glutinuous rice will sticks all the other ingredients onto its surface, creative, right?

Ghee Hiang Tambun Biscuits @ Georgetown, Penang: Heritage Tambun Biscuits At Its Best:)

Jenni Homemade Cakes & Bakery @ Jalan Cantonment, Georgetown, Penang: Best Cheese Cake In Penang!

OMG!! How can I missed posting about this cake house! I used to buy a whole cake from them at least once every fortnight, sometimes more frequent...when I have extra cash to burn:)

Tiramisu (RM35)
This wonderful cake house was highly recommended by my dear friend, Fiona. I have to thank her because I'll never know about this place if not for her. This cake house's location and appearance took on an assuming and plain building, but once you enter'll be making return visits very, very often, hehe.

Otak-Otak Cheng Boi @ Muar: The Authentic and Best Muar Otak-Otak

One problem that I often encounter when a town/ place is well known for its local foods is everyone starts to give the same name! Think of Kajang satay and you'll understand. Every satay stalls in Kajang...and those in other states named their satay stall/ restaurants as Kajang satay. So how you know which is the original Kajang satay?!

And now, the same applies to the small town of Muar. What it's famous for? Otak-otak! Everyone knows that Muar is famous for their otak-otak! But where is the original or best otak-otak?

Otak-Otak Cheng favorite otak-otak shop in Muar! They specialized in otak-otak, doing both retail and wholesale (if I'm not mistaken).

3rd Road 888 (Sah Tiau Lor) Hokkien Mee @ Gat Lebuh Presgrave, Georgetown, Penang: Best Hokkien Mee As Voted By The Crowds Daily!

I knew it's hard for my blog readers to trust what I wrote whole-heartedly all the time. I also knew that most of us have different taste buds to begin with. So, today I will let the crowds to decide. More specifically, 'Penang crowds', who are the most food conscious and most particular about their foods. You can judge how great (not 'good' as most foods in Penang are good, hehe) a food stall/ restaurant in Penang by the size of the crowds at the food stalls/ restaurants.

And today, I'll recommend my favorite Hokkien mee a.k.a prawn noodles in Penang. Within the short section of Lebuh Presgrave road, there are a lot of Penang's favorite. Virtually all food stalls there are my favorites!!!

Just join me for a short write-ups on the food stalls before try it out yourselves!

3rd Road 888 (Sah Tiau Lor) Hokkien Mee @ Gat Lebuh Presgrave, Georgetown. RM3 per bowl, NOT inclusive of addition of various 'extras' (see below) at extra cost, of course:)

Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng @ Georgetown, Penang: Best Mee Goreng!! (So Many BEST Foods In Penang Until I Lost Track!)

Another 'must-eat' food when you're in Georgetown, Penang, mee goreng!

Mee goreng is actually fried noodle. It is made popular here by Penangites of Indian-Muslim ethnic (or more commonly called 'Mamak'). Their foods command huge following because of their distinct, excitingly spicy (sometimes), super-delicious and palatable amongst Malaysians.

Penang Hot Bowl White Curry Mee @ Abu Siti Lane, Georgetown, Penang: Unique White Curry Mee, Only In Penang?

It was certainly interesting to know of the existence of''white' curry mee located at the center of Georgetown. So much so when I heard it taste great also! I went there without much delay...the same day actually:)

WHITE curry mee!! (RM5.50)
It was located along Abu Siti Lane, on your left once you're about 2/3 the length of the Abu Siti Lane road. Parking was slightly cumbersome but if you're lucky enough, you can park at this shop front, which can accommodate about 2-3 'small' cars. Otherwise, you'll have to park along the road, which I'm confident you won't be summoned during lunch hours (our policemen are so understanding, sometimes!).

Chicken Leg Loh Mee @ Medan Selera Taman Free School, Penang: Delicious, Yet Unpretentious:)

If you happen to be hungry and driving along Jalan Masjid Negeri and notice a McDonald along the road on your left side, don't eat at McDonald! You're in Penang wey...great foods is at every corner! Turn left into the road named Free School Road, drive along the road until you reach a roundabout and take notice of a food court there called Medan Selara Taman Free School next to the roundabout.

There are a few nice food stalls in it. I'll share with you one of it tonight, which is named Chicken Leg Loh Mee:)
