Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat Restaurant (Little Fat Lamb) was buzzing with diners when we visited the place for dinner. The steamboat restaurant which has developed a reputation of offering nice cuts of meat is located along Jalan Tanjung Tokong Penang, a few houses away from Starbucks Drive-Thru.

Raw meats and veggies are cooked in a pot of hot soup.  At Xiao Fei Yang, there is the herbal soup (RM23) and hot & spicy Mala soup. You can also opt to have the combination of both, priced at RM25.

Ordering is made easy with the ticking ordering system. We tick our choices of ingredients and in a short while, the pot of soup is set up the table. The Mala broth is hearty and fiery, boiled with lots of herbs, peppercorns, ginger and chillies. The herbal soup flavored with a mixture of Chinese herbs, garlic, longan and kei chee (wolfberries) is especially welcoming.

Nagore Square, a buzzy food scene in Penang is home to many food outlets. Conveniently sitting on the corner of the refurbished Chime Heritage building on nearby Jalan Bawasah is The Haven Harbour (HH). This double storey corner unit cafe with its white washed walls and spacious upstairs dining area is welcoming with modern day design and relaxing environment.

Andus Yeap takes care of the kitchen while Carine Lim is the lady behind the wide range of creative pastries and cakes. For freshness, only small patches of desserts are baked daily while the made to order signature desserts take 15 minutes of preparation.

Take your pick from the different types of chocolate desserts made with superior quality Callebaut chocolate products. Would it be the Poke Boule or the Chocolate Assiette? We had both choices.

The ball of Poke Boule with Frangelico infused lady finger coated with Belgian chocolate was served cold in a ramekin. Carine took it up a notch by adding nice sense of texture – fine lines of white chocolate and crisp peanuts. Recommended to go with a cup of Americano, the Poke Boule practically melts in the mouth. It brings back something memorable – roughly like eating rum ball.

One such spot is the tom yam noodle stall located in a shoplot beside the SRJK (C) Kwong Wah Primary School. Due to not having a signboard, most customers brand it as the Kwong Wah Tom Yam for its near distance to the Chinese school.
