Drive all the way up to the cliffs edge of Jimbaran Bay and you will reach the high-end heavenly Ayana Resort and Spa.

I have been holidaying in the touristy Bali for one week to attend my son’s wedding. During that time, I was set up by a friend of mine to check into the award-winning five-star Ayana Resort and Spa. Close to many main attractions such as Kuta and Seminyak, the hotel with Balinese influences had my first visit brimming with great experience, hospitality and interesting culinary adventure.

Fancy some Hainanese cuisine in Penang? Chances are the choices are not aplenty as Hainanese cooks are few to come by and the younger generation is not keen on learning the trade.

But you can make your way to Yeng Keng Cafe & Bar in Yeng Keng Hotel, a heritage boutique hotel on Chulia Street at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage City of George Town. In addition to Western cuisine, Yeng Keng Café & Bar came out with a selection of classic Hainanese dishes.

Nasi Campur Melayu is a relatively new addition to the nasi Melayu stalls in George Town. This stall was set up a few months ago in Pinang Delicious Food Court on Macalister Road by siblings Roslina and Rosniza binti Mansor.

Originally from a coffee shop in Island Glades, the sisters have since moved their business down town. The dishes taste different from those around Georgetown as the dishes have a greater Perlis influence, said the owners.

Batu Lanchang Food Court is a great local favorite for lunch and teatime. There is a wide variety of hawker food available from the 50 stalls in this food court. We sampled a colorful bowl of Ice Kacang (Ais Batu Campur) with fine shaved ice, syrups, ice cream, red beans, sweet corn, cincau (grass jelly) served topped drizzled with milk. Another good choice is a glass of cooling sugar cane juice.
