   Posted by: CK Lam    in Events

This Christmas, I am thankful to received many presents from friends and loved ones. One of them which I find very practical and useful is this GPS Navigator (Garmin). This personal travel assistant was a gift from my hubby. He says it will be very helpful for my food outing trip as it can sometimes be very tedious in finding the location.

Last Sunday, we went over to Butterworth to try out the seafood at Ong Cheng Huat Seafood Restaurant. Not knowing the exact location, I went to search for it in the Google map. With the helpful directions and the map in hand, we drove over to Bagan Lallang.

The place was crowded as it was lunch hour. We were introduced to their fermented coconut water, known by the locals as Tuak.  It is a popular drink in this restaurant. A one liter bottle cost RM5. It tasted a bit sourish sweet and has a gassy feeling. Recommended to try out this unusual drink.

This time around a few food bloggers and myself were invited by well known and talented bakers, Big Boys Oven to do a review at the Shanghaineses Restaurant, Dragon-i at Queensbay Mall, Penang. This restaurant is famous for their many varieties of non-halal Shanghainese cuisine.

I was looking forward to do this review as I still remembered not too long ago I was indulging myself with family and friends on their Mid-Autumn Festiva Banquet set meal which all of us truly enjoyed.

In Penang we always go for ice kacang and cendol as our desert. Recently, I have posted coconut jelly in my blog and it created awareness among my readers. I just got to know through Ken of Foodpoi of a fantastic dessert drink that is no so well publicized. It is know as ‘Ais Tingkap’ or ‘Window Sherbet’ as the chilled sherbet drink was sold over the window.

It is a chilled sweet red colour flavored (rose essence) drink served in a chilled glass with fine shaved ice and pieces of coconut flesh.

We came across some good and tasty hawker food in Taman Emas coffee shop located directly opposite the Penang Chinese Girl’s High School. This corner lot coffee shop on the busy Gottlieb Road is well known for its Assam Laksa.  Besides that we also got to try out the food from the other stalls.

This plate of Char Koay Teow (RM3) comes with slices of Chinese Sausages and  a few prawns. Fried till just right, not too oily, it tasted prefect with few drops of soy sauce.

   Posted by: CK Lam    in Events

On Saturday, December 6, 2008, the Penang food bloggers had their third gathering with a potluck theme whereby everyone brought along their own food. With all the food laid on the table, it indeed look like an international buffet spread. There was a wide selection of delicious and addictive food which will definitely please every palate.

This nicely decorated and unique dish was prepared by Criz Lai. It has a combination of Spicy Chicken & Abalone Salad, stir fried Jack Fruit Pork Strips and Sambal Prawns which were very tasty and appetizing. He also gave out to each of us a pair of chopstick as a souvenir.

***This restaurant has since shifted

Batu Maung in Penang is famous for its seafood restaurants and this time around we went to try out the food at Batu Maung Seafood Restaurant. Situated beside the Sam Poh Footprint Temple which is dedicated to Admiral Cheng Ho (Zhenghe), this restaurant has a splendid view of the rolling gentle sea with many fishing vessels which brings a sense of calmness to the mind. This view is definitely not to be missed especially at dawn and dusk.
