The Jawi House Cafe Gallery, offers an eclectic Jawi Peranakan (Straits Muslim) interior with a comfortable atmosphere to entertain friends and family.

Located on Armenian Street in the heritage zone of George Town, Penang, the cafe is owned by Datuk Dr Wazir Jahan Karim, an anthropologist and culture conservationist.

Although Wazir is a good cook herself, having learned from her mother, she often leaves food preparation at the restaurant to her son and head chef Nurilkarim Razha.

Our eyes were drawn to the newly opened Asiatique Kitchen & Lounge in Tanjung Tokong, Penang. The kitchen helmed by young Aldrien Moh offers Modern Australian cooking, with food prepared combining Asian flavors into French cooking techniques.

We were at the fusion theme place for a weekday lunch after it had opened, and we returned recently for dinner.

For a light meal when in Penang, head over to Yik Kheng Kee coffee shop on Kimberley Street in Penang. The owners, Ong Khye Jim (full blooded Hainanese) and his wife have been selling this unique humble stir-fried noodle dish for over three decades!

The preparation of the noodle has since changed. He used to fry the noodle over charcoal fire, but now uses gas fire to cater the demand of his impatient customers. Nevertheless, it didn’t stop regulars from keep coming back. The place is especially packed during lunch hour.

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.

Batu Lanchang Food Court is a great local favorite for lunch and teatime. There is a wide variety of hawker food available from the 50 stalls in this food court. We sampled a colorful bowl of Ice Kacang (Ais Batu Campur) with fine shaved ice, syrups, ice cream, red beans, sweet corn, cincau (grass jelly) served topped drizzled with milk. Another good choice is a glass of cooling sugar cane juice.

Public Cafe is just another neighborhood coffee shop in the pleasant surroundings of Gurney Drive. Located next to the famed Song River Cafe, this coffee shop is a favorite spot for me as it has a stall that serves up both delicious yet reasonable seafood noodles and porridge.

Take a pick from the striking mix of ingredients and several types of noodles.  The prices varies according to the seafood ingredients, with pawns, crabs, paddy frogs (tin kai/chui kay) and varieties of fish.

This is one of my few lunch venture into Restoran Nasi Padang Minang, which is located in Transfer Road. The place is crowded with customers, with tables for sharing especially for lunch. The array of dishes displayed are extremely inviting, with a selection of fish, meat and fresh vegetables which are all prepared with spices in ways that offer a range of flavors.

Teik Seng, one of the popular Chu Char stall in Penang has made its way to a new outlet to cater for its increasing number of customers. Opened its door for business on the 8th April 2010, the new outlet is just a few doors away and very close to its previous site in Carnavon street.

*Update 25/04/2010: This restaurant recently has a new signboard, with the name of the restaurant changed to TekSen Restaurant. No worries, it is the same owner and shop!
