A food trip over to Ipoh, Perak had us visiting Mun Choong Restaurant. This restaurant commonly known as Pusing Public Restaurant is a favorite of both tourists and locals.

This restaurant situated in Pasir Puteh offers variety of delicacies and one personal favorite is the udang galah (Har Lok in Cantonese). These freshwater prawns are cooked in many forms.

Khunthai Authentic Thai Restaurant is a place in Penang that locals and foreigners alike flock to for tasty Thai cuisine. Having made a name for itself in Raja Uda Butterworth, it recently opened another outlet at Teluk Kumbar on Penang Island.

This restaurant offers Thai delicacies specialising on seafood dishes. We started with the kerabu mango, which has plenty of vegetables, mango strips, cashew nuts and anchovies. The sour, spicy and sweet dish is a great starter as it whetted everyone’s appetite.

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!

As usual, we were browsing and hunting through for a nice dinner, and somehow Hubby had a great idea of having some Lok Lok! Commonly on the island, we usually go to Padang Brown or the Pulau Tikus Market at night, however this time; hubby wants to try out the Lok Lok at Butterworth’s Chai Leng Park, Wai Sek Kai.

We made a trip over there and we chose New Corner Lok Lok as it is the first visible stall when you enter into this one way street. In the evening, this street is turned into a hawker food haven with stalls lining up from the beginning right till the end.

Just mention Goh Huat Seng Restaurant and usually one word come to mind… Steamboat! Having been around for more than 50 years, it is one of the oldest Teochew restaurants in Penang. Situated in the folds of Kimberley Street, many things have changed since the old days but one thing’s for sure… the traditional steamboat still comes lighted up with charcoal.

Fancy having a steaming hot bowl of chicken porridge or just plain white porridge together with two or three side dishes for dinner? We happen to stumble upon this stall located in a coffee shop at the junction of Kimberley Street/Jalan Kuala Kangsar (around Chowrasta Market) which sells this delicious food. It is open for dinner from 5.30pm onwards.


This bowl of chicken porridge/congee with chicken pieces and eu char koay cost RM3. It has the chicken sweetness in it and is served with some spring onions, dash of oil and thin strips of ginger. The porridge is very smooth and thick. I had one and a half bow!

This stall has a lot of other dishes to offer to its customers – specialties like pig trotter vinegar, curry wild boar meat, suen mui kai and blanch vegetables of choy sum. All these are great wonderful complement to the rice and plain porridge.
Hubby had his plate of rice with two dishes…. the ‘Mui Choy Chue Yoke’ which is actually pork cooked with preserved vegetable and BBQ chicken.

The BBQ chicken has an aromatic flavour. The meat is tender and tasty, infused with the soya sauce. This whole chicken drumstick cost RM6.


This place offers reasonable prices for their food…value for money.

***The restaurant has since closed down.

Nan Yang Chinese Cuisine Restaurant is located right at the centre of Georgetown. It is just opposite Yap Temple; sitting at the junction of Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling/Armenien Street.

This place has been around for quite a number of years but surprisingly not many bloggers have reviewed about it. The minute you step into this place, you will feel like you are back in the old Chinese houses where grandma used to stay in. The place is big and spacious with high ceilings and timber flooring for the upper floor. Chinese lanterns and kerosene lamps hang from the ceiling decorating its entrance.

There are many dishes offered in the menu with appetisers, noodles, seafood, meat and vegetables. A list of their signature dishes is posted up on the wall.

We were introduced to their poh piah which is done with a little twist. The difference lies in its ingredients and it is a dry version. It uses many colourful types of vegetables, meat and other ingredients. All these are wrapped up firmly with a piece of seaweed and the poh piah skin. The combination of its ingredients gives a very good flavour. Each roll is cut into two pieces which is quite a big portion. This dish makes a delightful light lunch even by itself.

Taukua fried with suan na (leeks) and prawns….they uses beancurd with five spice powder.

Mee suah cooked with chicken pieces in a rich soup with slices of salted vegetable (kiam chye)….. the taste is good but would be much better if they didn’t add in the sesame oil.


The unusual stir fried potato starch sheet. This is our first time having it and it turns out to be good. The noodles are fried in black sauce with generous amount of ingredients.

Ak Or – pieces of duck and yam simmered until soft and served in a claypot. The gravy has all the flavours of the yam.

Fried oh chien…. the oysters were big and fresh.

After the meal, we were given a complementary plate of dessert – tee nya kuih. This soft and smooth kuih is taken with palm sugar syrup. We frequently buy this from a roadside stall in Swatow Lane which sells the yellow and green version. I wonder if the stall is still around since most of them have shifted into the New World Park.

We were happy with the meal which cost a mere RM 62.00 and the clean environment of this old building. There are so many more dishes that we haven’t try out and we are sure of coming back again.

Sin Kheng Aun is a place where all Penangites and many outstation visitors would have heard of. This restaurant has been operating for decades, serving tasty Hainanese cuisine. All the food in this restaurants is cooked over a charcoal stove. My hubby used to patronized this restaurant since he was a kid.


These non-air conditioned restaurant has two dining areas, one on the ground floor and another upstairs. The kitchen is located on the ground floor. Dishes from ground floor kitchen are send to the dining hall upstairs by a food lift. The food is placed in the lift and the worker upstairs will pull it up manually. So far this is one restaurant that I have came across that still uses a manual food lift….


Dishes that we had – the curry gulai tumis pomfret (tau tei) . They only uses this type of fish for this curry dish. The ingredients are coarsely chopped and the gravy has a hint of belacan.

Kerabu chicken with the mixture of cucumber, onions, chicken pieces and chopped peanuts which was rather spicy.


Fried liver and pork in black soya sauce served with sourish pickles.


Fried assam prawns – the prawns were very fresh with the sweet and sour assam taste concealed in it.

The last dish we had was fried broccoli with cauliflower, which I find it a bit soggy.

This restaurant located in Lorong Chulia serves really great and tasty Hainanese food at very affordable prices except for the fish which can be a bit pricey.
