The ribbon cutting ceremony of Edo Ramen at Gurney Paragon Penang on 11th April 2014 saw the presence of Sushi Kin President & COO, Mr Akihiko Hijioka. He was joined by Mr Khor Siang Gin, Managing Director of Hunza Properties Berhad.

Located on the east wing of the building, this outlet branching off from Goku Raku Ramen offers a fresh approach to ramen indulgence. “The handmade Tokyo-style ramen created by Chef Tetsuya Fukino features four choices of soups and two categories of toppings. The handmade Japanese wheat ramen is made fresh daily and is pleasantly firm,” said Hijoka.

The Cecil Street Market Food Court in Penang has wafting aromas of food emanating from its rows of hawker stalls. You can find just about any hawker food in the large food court, commonly known as “chit teow lor ban san” (7th road market), named after the well-known market located right beside it. The last few years saw the upgrading of this food court that gave it its more polished eating environment, but the price and serving portion remain reasonable.

A firm favourite is the koay teow thng from Lum Lai, flat rice noodle served in a bowl of clear and flavourful soup. Toppings include pieces of fish cakes, springy fish balls, blood jelly and shredded duck meat. Add-ons, such as a whole duck drumstick, its liver or gizzard, are also available.

Many would have passed by Kedai Makanan Ye Wei 越味小吃館 every day and not notice this little eatery. Located on Transfer Road, this Vietnamese restaurant is run by Ah Hong and his Vietnamese wife, Thuy, who started as a small catering business for two years before finally opening this small family-owned eatery.

The small menu offers affordable selection of Vietnamese stir-fry dishes, noodles and tempting desserts. We started off with the So Huyet, a plate of stir-fried cockles with chilli paste and pork lard. The cockles are fresh and lovely when eaten with its own savoury juice or dipped in the accompanied chili sauce. A good appetiser to snack on while waiting for your main course.
