Our recent discovery is 9-Ten Thirsty Hen, a casual cafe located in Permai 32 in Tanjung Bungah, Penang. Launched a couple of months ago, the simple outlet sporting the hen image offers reasonably-priced, comfort food.

Dinner guests will experience dishes at the family-owned cafe, taken care by siblings Visarn Noel and Uppasara Nicole.

Nicole takes care of the front while brother Noel and his friend Shane Chee are the chefs who make what comes out of the kitchen. Both the chefs proceeded with cooking from scratch – including curing ham and bacon.

We had a great night out with some friends on our first time visiting the cafe. To get things started, we shared two salads. The Caesar Salad served topped with grated cheese comes with combinations of lettuce, hardboiled egg, toasted croutons and house-made bacon.

Penang is a hawker paradise with a huge variety of interesting street food stalls offering plenty of good and reasonably priced Chinese, Malay and Indian cuisine. I revel in the delights of hawker food, sold throughout the market area, neighbourhood stalls and the narrow back alleys of Penang.

Some of the stalls offer sitting areas while others have none, so you may have to eat while standing up – a bit of a challenge. However, it’s an even bigger challenge to decipher what goes into each dish and just where those flavours dancing on your palate stem from. This is where I can help.

Hokkien Mee

What it is: Also known as prawn mee, Hokkien mee is served with choice of either blanched yellow noodles or rice vermicelli, or a combination of both.

 Pan Mee

What it is: Pan Mee is also known as mee hoon kueh in Hokkien. You can have either the dry version or with soup. Pan mee is a type of noodle made of rice flour that is handmade manually on the spot. The prepared small lumps of dough are kept fresh in a tight container, and when the time comes, they’re flattened and cut into strips using a noodle-making machine.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat Restaurant (Little Fat Lamb) was buzzing with diners when we visited the place for dinner. The steamboat restaurant which has developed a reputation of offering nice cuts of meat is located along Jalan Tanjung Tokong Penang, a few houses away from Starbucks Drive-Thru.

Raw meats and veggies are cooked in a pot of hot soup.  At Xiao Fei Yang, there is the herbal soup (RM23) and hot & spicy Mala soup. You can also opt to have the combination of both, priced at RM25.

Ordering is made easy with the ticking ordering system. We tick our choices of ingredients and in a short while, the pot of soup is set up the table. The Mala broth is hearty and fiery, boiled with lots of herbs, peppercorns, ginger and chillies. The herbal soup flavored with a mixture of Chinese herbs, garlic, longan and kei chee (wolfberries) is especially welcoming.
