*** Update:  Kozue has closed

Since Kozue’s opening in Penang Gurney Plaza in December last year, business in this modern and chic restaurant has been good; and has since developed a solid group of regular customers. My family have been to Kozue’s several times and have tasted many of its innovative fusion dishes which can be seen in my previous post.

Recently, a few food bloggers and I were given a warm welcome into Yishensu Restaurant located in 1 Utama, Petaling Jaya. This restaurant with an inviting and pleasant ambiance serves many choices of wholesome and hearty vegetarian dishes, noodles and sweets. It is very popular with shoppers and also the residence living around the area.

Rice Dumpling – Bak Chang

   Posted by: CK Lam    in Bak Chang, Chinese, Dumpling, Events

Happy Duan Wu Festival to all my readers!

In line with tradition, every year my MIL prepares her own Bak Chang (rice dumpling).  This time around, I decided to put up a post in my food blog on this savory rice dumpling which is literally a meal on itself as it is stuffed with various types of ingredients.

Another outlet for authentic Hokkien dishes in Penang is in an old shophouse on the ground floor of the Macallum flats. Restaurant Hock Chuan Heong is not visible from the main road but still walkable distance to the main road, whereby you will find Hock Seng Rojak, my favorite rojak stall.

Hock Chuan Heong is one of the places with good Hokkien dishes that come with reasonable prices. As expected, the place was crowded as it was lunch hour. The choices of dishes are very limited as they concentrate on their few specialties, just like what you will find in Ang Hoay Loh and Sin Lean Heang. The first dish was the aromatic and tasty Oh Chien (fried oyster omelette) with its starchy texture.

My First Dining Experience of Croatian Cuisines!

My trip down to Kuala Lumpur this time around was graced by a food review invitation to Dubrovnik, a fine-dining Croatian restaurant in a two storey building nestled in the bustling Solaris Mont Kiara. It was indeed a unique European Mediterranean dining experience.

A crest can be seen in the entrance glass panel. Upon stepping into this restaurant, you could feel yourself being enveloped by a truly homely feeling with stone walls and high pillars creating a nice and cozy ambience. There’s a lounge on the ground floor for customers to mingle about and a cozy dining area in the upper floor.

Heavenly Chinese Roast Meat can be found at Sky and Star in Penang.

One of my favorite stall would be the one located on the ground floor of Sky Hotel on Chulia Street which is known for its high number of budget hotels and small cafes. You could easily spot  this blue-ish building with the stall ‘WAI KEE’ right in the front entrance which is a few doors down from Ecco Cafe.

Here you will find delicious assorted roast meat. Ordering comes in individual servings or in individual plate with an assortment of your favourite choice of meat. The good stuff that I usually order is the Siew Yoke, Siew Cheong and Char Siew. The Siew Yoke has a very crispy skin and also the right amount of salty flavor.

Who can resist the succulent Siew Yoke!

Hubby and I came across this old eatery on Magazine Road which has been around for 60 over years. This place which serves porridge is operated by the elderly Mr Tan with the help of his son. This eatery has an amazing seating arrangement, with tiny wooden stools (bangku) on top of long benches.

Amazingly, this place is one of the handfuls of stalls left in Penang that does not even have a signboard!

As usual, we were browsing and hunting through for a nice dinner, and somehow Hubby had a great idea of having some Lok Lok! Commonly on the island, we usually go to Padang Brown or the Pulau Tikus Market at night, however this time; hubby wants to try out the Lok Lok at Butterworth’s Chai Leng Park, Wai Sek Kai.

We made a trip over there and we chose New Corner Lok Lok as it is the first visible stall when you enter into this one way street. In the evening, this street is turned into a hawker food haven with stalls lining up from the beginning right till the end.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I am sure many of us will be celebrating this fabulous day with our mother and mother-in-law. Besides the quality time we spend with them daily, this is also the best time for us to express our love and affection for them.

There will definitely be lots of pampering, whether to get a delicious meal prepared at home for your mother or eating out with her in her favorite restaurant. By the way, don’t forget the hugs and kisses too :)

As for me, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all mothers, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY and especially to my mother and mother-in-law for giving me all the entire support, patience and love.

Hope everyone will have a great time celebrating this joyous occasion!

There are numerous Curry Mee stalls in Penang and each stall has its own kind of soup. Some have their coconut based stock reddish while some comes in a lighter pale color version, at times known as White Curry Mee. There are also different kinds of add-on such as curry chicken, fish balls and fish cakes.

These are some of the Curry Mee stalls that I used to patronized. First on the list would be the delicious bowl of Curry Mee from Tuai Pui Curry Mee at Weld Quay. Added with extra pieces of curry chicken, gizzard and chicken legs, this stall has been my favorite for some time now. I find the soup very authentic as well, as it is aromatic on its own.

Business Hour : Lunch till evening.

Update : The stall has since shifted to -
No. 23 Lebuh Kimerley
10100 Penang

Business Hour: 9am to 5.30pm
Closed on Wednesday

***The restaurant has since closed down.

Check out Funky Monkey, the latest joint in Penang with the tagline, it’s all about good food, great value & a great place to gathered around. This outlet serving modern European cuisines is found in 127 Food Court along Burma Road. Do expect some interesting dishes with local flavors at this outlet concocted by the Chef Jeffrey, who learned the skill while working in various prominent hotels in Singapore.
