Loh Bak @ Kheng Pin Cafe, Penang

Loh Bak is one of the must-try items when you’re in Penang. While the island boasts a good number of stalls serving this popular treat, one of the popular places to have your Loh Bak is Kheng Pin cafe along Penang Road. I was told the uncle has been frying loh bak for almost 40 […]

Chinese New Year at Five Senses, The Westin

My grandmother used to say Chinese New Year is a second chance at making our New Year’s resolution. But I’ve been so hopeless at sticking to them, even second chances don’t work for me. I always made a promise to my parents that I would eat less, but with set menus such as the Abundance […]

Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng

Penang-ites rave about Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng to me all the time. It is so popular that people flock this stall at Seng Lee Coffee Shop for their dose of this mee goreng. What’s so good about this plate of fried noodles? Is it really the best mee goreng one can find in Penang? Bangkok […]

Kuay Teow Th’ng at Kedai Makanan Kim Lee

I’m not a big fan of kuay teow th’ng because the soup is often bland – I like my food to be packed with flavour. Like porridge, I often refer to kuay teow soup as food for the sick because that’s what I eat when I’m not well. But the kuay teow th’ng at Kim […]

Penang Coconut Jelly

Coconut jelly is widely available in Klang Valley, but the most talked about coconut jelly is from Joez Coconut in Penang. The star product is none other than the coconut jelly, made from pasteurized fresh young coconut juice. Each spoonful was smooth, wobbly and great as a thirst quencher. Coconut water is said to have […]

Oh Chien, Kedai Kopi Seng Thor

Oh Chien varies from different states in Malaysia. In Sitiawan, the oyster omelette is fried till the egg batter is golden brown, crispy and fluffy, and eaten with Kampung Koh chilli sauce. In Malacca, Penang and Muar, the oh chien is moist with crisp edges. But each slightly different from the other. I personally like […]

Yau Char Kwai, Cintra Street Penang

Good yau char kwai is becoming more and more difficult to find these days. A family friend introduced me to this yau char kwai (fried cruller) shop along Cintra Street in Penang last year. It’s been around for more than 30 years, and until today, there’s no signboard for this shop. I bought a few […]

Nasi Kandar Beratur, Penang

In business since 1943, the famous Nasi Kandar Beratur got its name from the long queue of people outside the shop. I almost didn’t want to beratur (line up) because I’m generally quite impatient. Good thing the queue moved fairly quick and I got to the front of the line after 45 minutes. Like most […]

Ais Tingkap (Window Sherbet) @ Lebuh Tamil, Penang

Penang is known for its cendol and ais kacang but I recently learnt about Ais Tingkap, a rose coloured drink with coconut flesh and basil seeds (biji selasih). The Ais Tingkap stall is located in Tamil Street, beside Chowrasta Market. While it may look like a simple drink, preparation involves a number of steps. The […]

Transfer Road Roti Canai

The roti canai at Transfer Road in Penang has been around for a long time and is often packed during weekends and public holidays. It is best to get there before 11am or there might be no curry left for you. To be honest, the roti canai isn’t great. I found it rather doughy, despite […]
