Penang is testament to the country’s multicultural citizenry and this year’s Merdeka theme – Where Love Grows.

Over the past 56 years, Penang has become synonymous with great food, a melting pot of cultures and their culinary history.

Despite the increasing number of modern cafes and fast food chains popping up in the city, there are still restaurant owners in Penang who are sticking with the age-old recipes. For these people, the old ways will never wear thin and these methods keep their customers coming back for more.

One of the popular outlet in Penang is Restoran Minah. This is an old-time favourite for Malay cuisine. Third-generation owners are carrying on the 64-year tradition at this non-air conditioned restaurant in Gelugor.

Happy Mid-Autumn festival and happy mooncake feasting!

With the Mid-Autumn Festival just around the corner, a group of us had an enjoyable time savoring many baked and snowskin mooncakes at the mooncake tasting event hosted by Gurney Paragon Mall Penang.

We saw the introduction of the latest trends and new gourmet ingredients featured in mooncakes from Canton-i, The Baker’s Cottage, Casahana, Leong Yin, Foh San, Purple Cane, Fai Fong, Kum Lun Tai and Hong Kong Mei Xin.

Canton-i introduced the Frosty Skin Series made with six new flavors. Be prepared to pay RM28 for two pieces of their renowned Frosty Durian Musang King mooncake, made with aromatic and quality musang king durian filling. Also included is the Organic Charcoal Skin with Coffee Paste mooncake. I would have preferred if it comes with a stronger amount of coffee.

Premium grade lotus seed imported from Hunan, China is used in the baked Hong Kong White Lotus Paste mooncake with single yolk (less sugar). Canton-i got it right with the amount of sugar and delicate lotus paste.
