After much delay and location change, Canton-i finally opened their doors at the ground floor of Queensbay Mall, Penang. This brand; which is associated with the Dragon-i line of restaurants, offers varieties of authentic Hong Kong cuisines. Upon stepping into this restaurant, the ambiance and atmosphere radiating from its surrounding was completely different of Dragon-i. Well, the open kitchen concept is still adopted, but the interior design; laced in pink and white colour themes, was a pleasant change. As I browsed through, I noticed the walls were mounted with huge mirrors, giving the place a spacious feeling.

Toh Soon is a small side street cafe situated in the folds of Campbell Street Penang. This cafe which is run by Mr and Mrs Ooi has always been a hit with the locals, especially their varieties served for breakfast and tea time. One of our pit stops for breakfast during the Canon Singapore Photography & Food Trip was at this joint which has an alley atmosphere.

I’ve always made it a point to visit Kuala Lumpur several times a year, as the cuisines are different from what we get in Penang. The  taste and ways of cooking are unique as well. We made our way down to Sek Yuen Chinese Restaurant just down Jalan Pudu during Chinese New Year. We started off with the traditional Yee Sang, and indeed it is different from those served in Penang.

Recently our family together with some friends went over to Butterworth to try out the food at Ah Keat Seafood Restaurant. We were recommended to this place by Sueh Ying. As to the location we only know it is located somewhere in Jalan Raja Uda near to the Nine Emperor Temple. With our trusted Garmin Navigator, we arrived at the temple. From there we slowly search for the restaurant and true enough, we found it located just a few meters opposite the temple.

This restaurant initially was doing zhu char and has since ventured into more imported live seafood items in the last few years. It has rows of huge glass tanks with wide selection of live seafood which can be ordered in a variety of preparation options, including steamed, stir-fried and deep-fried.

Most Penangites would have heard or tried the famous night-time Duck Koay Chiap in Kimberley Street, Penang. It is a stall by the roadside located just a few shops down from Restaurant Goh Huat Seng. The proprietor, Mr Por has been been serving Koay Chiap for almost twenty-nine years in this usual selling spot. For over the span of three decades, Mr Por has insisted on using local ingredients, while preparing everything himself. Ranging from the Koay Chiap to the stewed duck to the chili sauce, everything is prepared by him and has remained his trade secret all this while.

Pan mee is a delicious noodle that is handmade manually on the spot. I found a stall located in Yi Garden coffee shop along Macalister Road / Lorong Selamat selling this delicious pan mee.
