Recently there have been a number of Korean Restaurants opening up in Penang with the latest, Sa Rang Chae (meaning guest house). A few of us food bloggers arrived on an evening at this restaurant at the invitation of the owner, Mr Kevin Kim. This Korean restaurant located in New Bob Center along Gottlieb Road is bright and accentuated by surrounding glass panels.

Opening its doors just a mere seven months ago, it boasts an ethnic ambiance with three private dining rooms.

I was greatly privileged to receive an invitation for a dinner with the great Dato’ Jimmy Choo! Just the very mention of his name and I am sure many of us will have our mind filled with the world renowned shoe designer who is based in London, United Kingdom. This famous Penang-born designer was recently appointed the Malaysian Tourism Ambassador and Tourism Ministry’s adviser by our Tourism Ministry.

Proud to say, being a Malaysian, Dato’ Jimmy Choo is in the best position to help promote Malaysia at the international level.

New Lane is truly a street food center in Penang and the place is jam packed with many hawker food stalls and food hunters. Tables are set up in the open, even occupying part of a parking lot of an office complex. The lane is accessible from Macalister Road and Dato Kramat Road. You have to bring a big appetite as there are many delicious goodies at this place.

There are a few stalls that I usually patronized. I love the Grill Chicken located in the Sin Yin Nam coffee shop. The chicken wings and drumsticks are simply delicious. The aroma is so seductive that could drive you insane.

Kim Tavern is a newly opened cafe in the vicinity of Sunway Carnival Mall, Butterworth which serves meals and light snack throughout the day. A small group of Penang Food Bloggers with Taufuloh from Kuala Lumpur paid a visit to the place recently. It’s the first visit for all of us as it has opened its door less than two weeks ago. This cafe with casual settings is the second branch for proprietor Andy with the first one in Megamall. The upcoming branch in Kulim Industrial Park is expected to be open in this month.

After settling down comfortably in the cafe with orange, black and white color scheme Andy introduces to us the many varieties of food in the menu.

The Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe which is famous for its seafood is situated next to the Tua Pek Kong Temple in Tanjung Tokong with a beautiful seaside view overlooking the North Channel. I went there several times with my family and friends for lunch and dinner.

The seafood is cooked in very simple method, with their signature dish of coal-baked crabs and salt-baked prawns. I’ve eaten baked crabs in Teluk Kumbar Seafood, Crab Village Restaurant and Khuntai Restaurant, but I find this place produces the best baked crabs. The restaurant owner relies on these two signature dishes to pull in the customers.

Straight to the delicious food!

My mouth started watering with the aroma of the baked prawns filling the air. The salt-baked prawns with the smoky taste have us sucking and licking the shell.

We finally tracked down the hidden gem, Khunthai Restaurant located at nearby Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth. This is my first visit for dinner at this Thai restaurant that serves authentic Thai food. There are indoor and also outdoor sitting areas, al fresco style.

Undecided on what to order, I surveyed the few tables around, and finally opted for the Kerabu Khuntai RM10 packed with vegetables, dried shrimps, nuts and fruits with the sour, spicy and sweet taste. It was a great starter and whetted our appetite nicely!

In my trip down to Kuala Lumpur, one of the meals that I had was at The Uma. I was invited for dinner at this restaurant which serves authentic Balinese cuisines and this type of food is hardly found in Penang.
