Penang is testament to the country’s multicultural citizenry and this year’s Merdeka theme – Where Love Grows.

Over the past 56 years, Penang has become synonymous with great food, a melting pot of cultures and their culinary history.

Despite the increasing number of modern cafes and fast food chains popping up in the city, there are still restaurant owners in Penang who are sticking with the age-old recipes. For these people, the old ways will never wear thin and these methods keep their customers coming back for more.

One of the popular outlet in Penang is Restoran Minah. This is an old-time favourite for Malay cuisine. Third-generation owners are carrying on the 64-year tradition at this non-air conditioned restaurant in Gelugor.

The long line of people in front of the stall would suggest that the answer is “yes”.

Although wedged in the alley between Masjid Kapitan Keling and a shop, the stall is not hard to find. A queue of customers waiting for it to open at 10pm is a common sight.

Nasi Kandar Beratur, which moved into its present premises in 1943, has long been renowned for halal Indian-Muslim food. Its recipes have remained unchanged through the years.

 Is Nasi Kandar Beratur worth waiting for?

It is always nice to see my work in print. This time around my article was published in the Hong Kong Express’s airline UO Magazine, which covers lifestyle topics – travel, leisure, shopping, food adventure and people. The airline, a Hainan Airlines’ subsidiary company has opened a new route to Penang on 27 October 2013.

I was first approached by personnel from Ink, a Singpaore-based publisher to write a story on Penang’s Top10 Eating Experiences. The food story including colourful photos was eventually featured in the inaugural issue of the magazine (December 2013).

It had been a while since I visited The View in Hotel Equatorial Penang. The restaurant which offers classic French/Mediterranean cuisine has recently unveiled its refreshed menu. Executive chef Philippe L’Obry and sous chef Looi Soon Lee worked well in bringing their food styles together. The new dishes and hearty classic dishes are prepared with several notches above what was originally served.

The restaurant’s semi-buffet menu remained unchanged, still with one main course from the a la carte menu, and unlimited helpings of delectable appetizers and desserts. The buffet spread is lay out in small portions and replenished as soon as the previous batch runs out.

The spread of cold succulent seafood include large prawns, oysters and scallops. The oysters with briny flesh are just perfect with few drops of lemon juice.
