It is easy finding sandwiches but difficult to find healthy ones put together with care. Recently I got to know Sandwhich, which just opened its first outlet in I-Avenue, Penang.

“This outlet is committed to wellness. Premium grade ingredient of antibiotic free enzyme chicken, pork, fresh tuna and Omega eggs are the choices of fillings. To create healthy and delicious foods, the fresh ingredients are roast and steam except for the pan-fried egg,” explains T.W. Fong.

The sandwhiches are made with four types of baked breads: choose from olive ciabatta, wholemeal sandwich loaf, croissant and sesame wholemeal bun. A popular choice is the aromatic ciabatta which has a bit more bite.

Goku Raku Ramen brings their specialty Horikiri style ramen to their new outlet in Gurney Paragon Mall, Penang. Located on the east wing of the building, Goku Raku Ramen is the latest branch opened by the Texchem group in Penang.

The ramen comes with three types of soups – Tonkotsu (pork-based), Shoyu Tonkotsu (Japanese soy sauce) and Miso Tonkotsu. The freshly made broths are simmered for 17 to 30 hours by Chef Kenji Nakagawa who leads the kitchen.

The signature dish  is  aptly named Goku Raku Ramen, and comes in a rich broth consisting of a complex blend of pork, chicken and fish which is simmered for 30 hours. Both the large (RM23.90) and small (RM18.90) servings are topped with char siew slices, flavoured egg, onions, Japanese leeks, bamboo shoots and seaweed. The texture of the fresh noodle is slightly springy. The ramen in Shoyu Tonkotsu broth is served with a swirl of fragrant garlic oil  giving it an appetising aroma.

The Kota Selera Food Court adjoining Padang Kota Lama (Fort Cornwallis) is a favorite eating place for both locals and visitors to Penang. This spacious food court has several outstanding stalls doing brisk business with the lunch crowd looking for a quick bite.

One stall that stands out among the crowd is Makanan Hainan, serving local and Western fare, Hainanese style. Its small menu of 12 items includes the all-time favorites – chicken chop, fish and chips, prawn fritters, lamp chop and beef steak. Its popular all-day breakfast set is sausage and eggs.

The lamb chop (RM15) comes with two pieces of meaty lamb, pan-fried in a delicious flavour. The addition of fried onions gives a nice contrast of texture and sweetness, wonderfully complementing the tender meat, vegetables, french fries and baked beans.

Something new to start off a great 2010!

In a blink of an eye, 2009 has come to a close and 2010 has begun! I am kicking off the new year with our Penang’s very own famed Tau Sar Pneah and more!

There are several well known brands of Tau Sar Pneah in Penang. The outlets that many outstation visitors would normally visit would be Ghee Hiang and Him Heang. However, there are also some less known brands; among them is Eaton Kuih Centre in Batu Lanchang!
