Updated on October 2010 : The restaurant has stopped operation.

We recently went to a newly opened food court in Burma Road. The 127 Food Court which offers many different kind of Penang hawker food is conveniently located with its front facing Burma Road and its side behind Jemput Tree and Isaribi Japanese Restaurant. It has a relaxing, airy and clean outdoor environment.

With so many stalls around, we had some time choosing the food. A small talk with the coffee seller got me into ordering a few items including this Arab Fried Rice. Indeed a good recommendation of this flavorful and spicy rice fried with chili padi and curry leaves.

We took an evening drive across the Penang Bridge for food as it has been a while since we had our last mainland makan outing at Cai Xiang Seafood Restaurant. We headed for Pantai Bersih in Bagan Ajam along the Butterworth Outer Ring Road for a seafood dinner.

Lobster Village Seafood Restaurant was the ideal choice as it was recommended to us by a friend who regularly patronize this place. We had the panggang crabs to begin with. The simplicity of “panggang”-ing the fresh crabs; brings out the sweetness and the fragrance.

Satay, originally a Malay cuisine, has been fusioned and adapted by many races, as the idea of meat on the stick has been appealing since the early days. In Malaysia, the more popular type of skewered meat would be the chicken and beef. We came across this satay stall specializing in Satay Kambing (mutton satay) during my revisit for the cooling glass of Ais Tingkap.

A Saturday lunch was at Ang Hoay Loh which occupied the corner garden space of the State Chinese (Penang) Association in Perak Road. This restaurant is an icon for some of Penang’s most authentic cuisines.

One of my favorite places for Beef noodles has to be the shop at the intersection of Beach and Chulia Street. This place is also known as the BOMBA BEEF KOAY TEOW as the landmark that stands out would be the fire station, located right opposite it. The shop has been selling beef noodles for many years now, and is still a hit with the locals and foreigners alike.
