Penang Plaza in Burma Road has been given a new lease of life with the opening of the Hei Yeong Seng Chinese Restaurant. Also known as Noble Season Chinese Restaurant, it is a subsidiary of the Chinese Recreation Club Restaurant. Its cream-coloured table cloths and simple decor give it a bright and cheery ambience. There is an aquarium at one side of the restaurant that is filled with thriving fish of all kinds. There is also a mini-stage at the rear to cater for mass banquets and company functions.

Its menu is a selection of seafood and meat dishes, as well as noodles and desserts. The steamed chicken is garnished with plenty of spring onions. Prepared with Chinese wine and wolfberries, the chicken can be enjoy on its own, or with some pounded ginger.

The Cape @Pulau Tikus, Penang

   Posted by: CK Lam    in Chinese, Non-Halal, Penang, Pulau Tikus, Restaurant

 * This outlet has since closed down in 2012.

If you are looking for simple, wholesome meals in Pulau Tikus, a good choice would be The Cape. The restaurant which was once located in Gurney Plaza has since shifted to a two storey shoplot, at the junction of Burma Road and Cantonment Road.

The menu offers healthy dishes cooked with chicken, fish, and pork. For starters, we had the aromatic garlic meat dumpling and the Mansion ham rolls (RM6.90). The pan-fried dumpling was good dipped in the soy sauce vinegar mixture with ginger strips. The Mansion ham rolls had the ham wrapped up in a meat parcel. One serving comes with four large pieces and a dipping sauce.

Chicken rice can be found in most hawker stalls and food courts in Penang as the chicken rice is a popular and favorite food for many of us. There is one exceptional stall that sells Hainan Chicken Rice – Thai style located in a corner coffee shop along Penang Road. It is directly opposite KOMTAR Tower and a few shops away from Kek Seng which is famous for its durian ice cream and ice kacang.

Kuala Sepetang (Port Weld) is a fishing village near Taiping and is famous for its fresh seafood and mee banjir udang. It is around twenty kilometers from Taiping town and roughly twenty-five minutes traveling time. We were in Taiping for the cheng beng and we took the opportunity to try out the seafood after reading about it in the Kwong  Wah Yit Poh. The quiet town of Kuala Sepetang was buzzing with excitement due to the coming Bukit Gantang by-election. The roads were packed with vehicles parking on the roadside which was lined and decorated with the flags and banners of all parties. FRU and police trucks were everywhere as well. What a timing indeed!

After maneuvering through the jam, we finally reached the Restaurant Tepi Sungai. Quite literally, as the restaurant is RIGHT beside the river! It is on the first floor of the building. The ground floor is the docking area for the fishing boats.

This time around a few food bloggers and myself were invited by well known and talented bakers, Big Boys Oven to do a review at the Shanghaineses Restaurant, Dragon-i at Queensbay Mall, Penang. This restaurant is famous for their many varieties of non-halal Shanghainese cuisine.

I was looking forward to do this review as I still remembered not too long ago I was indulging myself with family and friends on their Mid-Autumn Festiva Banquet set meal which all of us truly enjoyed.
