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.

Over the past few years, Suffolk House Restaurant has had many different chefs. The latest is executive chef Dave Looi. His last job before arriving in Penang was in Parrot Cay, a private island which is part of the Turks and Caicos Islands. He has also worked as a chef in Taipei, London and New York.

Looi’s passion for creativity is apparent in the numerous dishes we sampled at Suffolk House Restaurant.

Happy Duan Wu Festival to everyone!

The Duan Wu festival is celebrated on every 5th day of the 5th month, and for this year, it  falls on June 23. During this festival, many will be busy preparing the chang themselves (glutinous rice dumpling), and also many will be buying them from the shops.

In Penang, the chang is sold commercially all year round in a number of places, and one such place is Cintra Food Corner. For generations, the Lor’s family has been dishing out the chang for customers to dine-in and take-away. Once located at the road side of the bustling Cintra Street, owner Lor Onn Kee has since shifted the business to a nearby shop house in 2006.

The kerabu pomelo has pomelo, chili padi, coriander, Chinese chives and plenty of ginger flower. The taste was appetizing with offerings of sour and sweet notes and heat from the cut chilies.

Kang Beef House is the place for all things beef, and it is the ideal place to explore if you are a beef lover. The beef is served in a variety of ways, be it soup noodles, stir-fried dishes or steamboat. We made several visits to Kang Beef House since its opening last year.

The most common dish here is the bowl of Beef Koay Teow, priced at RM6, RM8, RM10, RM12 and RM15.  It comes with a light broth, drawing flavor from an assortment of beef parts, including beef slices, meat balls, brisket and stomach. We enjoyed slurping the smooth koay teow along with the tasty soup.

It’s been sometime since I last visited Kompleks Makanan Persiaran Gurney (KMPG). It is located along the Gurney Drive seafront promenade. It is small by any standard, and is occupied by a few Mamak hawker stalls. However, despite its size, this place has built a reputation for offering delicious mee goreng and pasembor, known also as the Indian rojak.

Chee Cheong Fun is a dish of hand cut steamed flat rice noodle rolls without any filling. This little bites is a popular snack in Penang as it is simply tasty, filling and the price is reasonably cheap. The taste suits both the old and the young.

There are many Chee Cheong Fun stalls around town, the taste and texture may vary from each outlet. The rice noodles are mostly sourced from the supplier, some with springy texture while others slightly chewy. It all comes drizzled with the three basic sauces – sweet sauce (tee cheou), shrimp paste (hae ko) and chili sauce along with a dash of oil and toasted sesame seeds.

Having it drenched in the shrimp paste is Penang’s specialty. You can choose to have all the sauces or request for less sauce depending on your preference. I tend to enjoy mine with all the sauces except the sweet sauce.

Taiwan Foods is located in Double 33 Kopitiam, a corner shop lot along Jalan Aziz Ibrahim, with the Queensbay Mall just a stone’s throw away. This place is perfect for a simple quick lunch. The menu is pretty straight forward, serving mostly rice dishes and noodle dishes with several types of braised meat.

Whenever we are near the area, we would drop by for a meal in this stall, which is on the same row with the Kampar Fish Jelly Restaurant.
