A visit to Sunshine Bay for dinner had the few of us indulging in several types of seafood dishes. This eatery, located in Kedai Kopi Sin Eng Huat at Tanjung Bungah is just right beside the traffic light junction, directly opposite  the famous Penang Tanjung Bunga Goreng Pisang stall. The place looks quite old with the fluorescent lightnings going on and off during our visit on a rainy day. Anyway, the food was awesome!

I am sharing the absolutely scrumptious noodle dishes first. The Kappa Mee Suah and the Stir Fried Noodles with Crab are two lovely choices that we started with. Meesuah was smooth on the tongue and extremely flavorful with the egg and fresh kappa.

On the other hand, the yellow noodles are stir fried with crab, robust with the crustacean juices. The noodles are best left absorbing the gravy as it tends to get slightly moist and more flavorful. I could not resist a second helping of the noodles! The crab flesh was juicy, and with the gravy coating it, the dish was heavenly!

Enjoy pleasant service, inviting ambiance and quality fine Hunan and Sichuan cuisine from Chin’s Stylish Chinese Cuisine. This latest Penang fine dining restaurant has its prime seaside location in Church Street Pier overlooking the calm waters of the harbor and George Town behind it.

Chin’s which was opened a few months ago was everything of a fine dining restaurant, casual and elegant dining with delicate and delicious food, wine and a sense of pampering.

The ambience was welcoming as I step inside the waiting area of the restaurant passing through its striking red glass door – there to greet me is owner Dave Chin.

It was a fantastic gastronomic delight spending a Sunday afternoon discovering a luxurious spread of cuisines in the Feast Village Sunday Brunch at Shook!

Teik Seng, one of the popular Chu Char stall in Penang has made its way to a new outlet to cater for its increasing number of customers. Opened its door for business on the 8th April 2010, the new outlet is just a few doors away and very close to its previous site in Carnavon street.

*Update 25/04/2010: This restaurant recently has a new signboard, with the name of the restaurant changed to TekSen Restaurant. No worries, it is the same owner and shop!

Recently I and hubby took a trip Down Under to visit my eldest son! It was a really exciting journey as it has been a while since we went there. We visited and dined in many places in Perth which I will be sharing with everyone in time to come.

On this particular day, we started out early in the morning, heading to the countryside of Swan Valley to experience the nature and surroundings. We took a stopover at The Margaret River Chocolate Company, Sandalford Wines, Caversham Wildlife Park and the AQWA.

Snacks are available everywhere in Penang! Plentiful indeed, however one particular snack caught my eye while I was slurping away my bowl of Assam Laksa in the Air Itam market. This lady was selling deep fried buns, similar to Roti Babi but with different ingredients and she uses bun instead of bread!

She makes a stunning serving of these inexpensive priced fried buns. The white fluffy buns are battered, deep fried and stuffed with four kinds of savory fillings:  chicken curry, mixed turnip stuffing (similar to mangkuang char), sausage and luncheon meat…simple creations!

My favorite from this stall is the Deep Fried Chicken Curry Bun! Stuffed with pieces of chicken and potato, the filling is quite similar to curry puffs… however the deep fried bun makes it taste surprisingly good.
