Fish Head Bee Hoon near Jalan Jelutong

Last Saturday, I and papa and mama go to Jeletong there to eat this fish head bee hoon (rice noodle). According to my mom, she say there very famous one and need to wait for some times. It's near Jalan Jelutong and Perak Lane. Not so sure, but as far as i know it's near Jalan Jelutong.

Indeed, the fish head bee hoon is very nice. We ordered 2 version, 1 is bee hoon another is moi (porridge). Then dad ordered the crab. He say not always get to order the crab.

I feel the best is not the bee hoon but is the crab. I like the soup very much. Nice! Go try it now!

I locate myself there. Haha.

New Lane eat Fish Head Bee Hoon and Hokkien Mee

Do you know New Lane got very nice Fish Head Bee Hoon (rice noodle)? It's at the Kopitiam there. My dad's friend say that the one beside the small plaza one is better, but need to wait very long. We eat finish already, the food only come. But still the same one I think. The Fish Head and Fish Fillet Bee Hoon is nice.

Besides ordering the Bee Hoon (rice noodles), I ordered one of my favourite Penang food which is the Hokkien Prawn Mee. So so only, still can eat. I like the one at Tanjong Tokong one. You can give it a try, maybe I am wrong. HAHA

Go New Lane now ! =]

Roasted Chicken At Food Loft

Last Saturday I went to the bloggers gathering - The Orient Voices at Food Loft. This event was sponsored by Food Loft, Nuffnang and Exabyte. So, we bloggers were able to eat free.

We were given an order card with RM15 credit in it and we are free to order anything. In total as long as it do not exceed RM15, we do not need to pay. If you lost the card, you need to pay RM100.

I once visited Food Loft last year during my birthday. I last time ordered the steak, but it wasn't nice. This time I ordered a American Quarter Roasted Chicken which is RM14.90. Didn't exceed the amount lo.

But guess what, when check out that time, I still need to pay additional RM1.40 for the service tax and government tax. =(

The roasted chicken was nice. Like it. Quarter roasted chicken, rice, fries and some little salad.

Food Loft is at 4th floor of Gurney Plaza.

Nice Western Food at Fettes Park

Anybody live near Fettes Park? Live far also nevermind, you can always drive yourself there. The western food there is not very expensive. You know the Fatty Loh Chicken Rice at Fettes Park? The western food is at there, sells only at night.

FYI, if you are from other places, not from Malaysia, this western food here is not same, it's oriental style.

I ordered this Chicken Gorden Blue, which is chicken with cheese and ham inside. Nice! I like this, got cheese. RM7.50 only.

Look what is inside?

My mom ordered a Grill Garlic Fish Fillet. Quite nice, but bit too salty. Love the garlic and the fillet.

It's Fruit Season. Durian, Rambutan, Mangosteen

Last Sunday, I went to Teluk Bahang there to eat fruits. Exactly opposite the Butterfly Farm, a small stall selling Rambutans, Durians and Mangosteen. That day was raining, feeling cold.

My dad's friend book the fruit already, so the guy selling it ensure we get to eat, LIVE on the spot. If take home will become not really fresh already.

From Balik Pulau to Teluk Bahang needs at least 20 minutes. That day, it took my dad half and hour because of the rainy weather. I don't know why this few days always rain. Today rain whole morning till afternoon.

Some durian was tasteless, some was nice and sweet. Some durian we ate were very fresh as the seller there said that they picked it up when they drop and straight send to here.

I ate quite lot durians there. Eat until burp burp, and got the durian smell came out of my mouth. XD I wonder what if I burp during the assembly in school hall. HAHA.

Loves it?

Chili's Grill and Bar

Last week I finally have chance to try out at this American food restaurant. Chili's Grill and Bar. I went there with my brother, my dad don't really like western food while my mom was sick.

We went there for dinner.

The restaurant not really big, many people were there. Full House, but there was places at the bar there, since I and my brother went only, so it's Ok.

The Margarita Bar. Inside is very well decorated, get a new feel. Feel like in America's restaurant. Haha.

The food is rather expensive, but still ok because of its nice food and big portion. I ordered Mushroom Jack Combo Fajitas and my brother ordered Quesa Beef. For drinks, since my Mushroom Jack is already RM37.xx, I just ask for sky juice then my brother ordered a Pina Chilada. Sweet!

My sky juice. (:

A Pina Chilada. Slurpppp.

This is my Mushroom Jack Fajitas chicken and beef combo. A bit salty, but it's still cool when you eat with the bread liked thing below. Loves the mushroom and the beef. There is vegetables in it too.

My Mushroom Jack comes with 3 pieces of this Chapati liked thin flat baked dough. Take some beef, chicken, mushroom, and add some salsa sauce, wrap it up with it, YUMMY!

This is my brother's Quesa Beef. Pizza liked food. Tasty, inside got beef, vegetables and cheese. The center white thingy is actually yogurt, but it's tasteless, sucks.

The salsa sauce. If you don't like western food, you definitely don't want to go here because the food is too Western-ish, cheesy. However, I think the original restaurant in the States will be better as I saw the caucasian went away after a few bites, guess the food there not as good as they have in their country. If you are locals and loves western food, you should go try.

Next time want to go try their Burger ^^.

Where is Chili's?
Located ground floor of G-Hotel, at Gurney Place there.

Yummy Ramli Burger

I believe Ramli burger can fight with McDonald's. It's truly made in Malaysia. RM3.50 with eggs, vegetables and beef/chicken. Still got cheaper one without eggs. Some also got cheese, see what you want.

Yummy. You can find it at street stalls here in Penang at night. The above one is at Prima Tanjong, Fettes Park.

Check this out. It's beef. Hungry now? The person take egg and wrap the beef up and put in some sauce, ketchup.

Rambutan !!!

Now not only because Durian season, durian very "hot". Now also Rambutan season.
The Rambutan (IPA: [raˈmbu.t̪ɑn], Nephelium lappaceum) is a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae, probably native to southeast Asia, and the fruit of this tree. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the Lychee, Longan and Mamoncillo. It is believed to be native to the Malay Archipelago where the name quite literally means 'hairy'. although its precise natural distribution is unknown. In Costa Rica and Nicaragua, it is known as mamón chino. from wikipedia
The Wikipedia version of Rambutan got so many name, but I believe here, we just this local fruit Rambutan in English/Malay, Ang Mor Tan in Hokkien, Hoong Mole Tan in Cantonese while Hoong Maul Tan in Mandarin.

The name :
  • Ang/Hoong - meaning Red colour
  • Mor/Mole/Mau/Rambut - hair
  • Tan - In ancient Chinese, their medical pill is a small ball. This small ball was call Tan 丹。
This fruit is kinda popular here in Malaysia and you can plant it in your compound too as the weather and climate here is very suitable for Rambutan planting.

I don't eat rambutan much because I just lazy to tear open and eat its flesh. You can't eat the whole thing, because you may accidentally swallow the seeds which is quite big. If someone want to tear for me, then hehehe, sure will eat all.

Sometimes, people will add rambutan flesh into desser like Si Kuey Th'ng. You only can eat the rambutan when it's turn bright red which mean it has riped.

Take a bite at the flesh or take out the seed. It taste sweet.

See? It's hairy ^^. Above pictures and rambutan were taken from my grandma's rambutan tree :). Cool eh? Free Rambutan.

Little Cottage 2

Hihi, last Thursday I went to Little Cottage 2 to have my lunch with mom, dad and my brother. There only serve Western and Italian food, no Chinese food. The set lunch is quite cheap, from RM9.90 to RM19.90. So how's the food? Continue reading :)

Where's Little Cottage 2?
It's at Waterfall Hotel at Gottlieb Road. Went there to eat because it's near to my dad's shop.

So, they served mushroom soup before serving you the main course. Quite nice, but somehow I don't know why my brother's soup have A oyster.

I ordered the RM15.90 set, Mexico Chicken set. I like the sauce that pour onto the Chicken, something like BBQ sauce, sweet. The mashed potato was nice too. I kinda like this food.

This Golden Fried Fish Fillet was for my mom. This set cost only RM9.90. Fish and chips! Not so nice loh, the fillet was kinda hard. I recommend you go eat the Fish And Chips by Fish & Co.

Here comes the RM19.90 set lunch my brother ordered, "Monte-Cristo" Chicken, I don't know what it means. It's almost like mine, but with black pepper and taste a bit spicy and sweet. Not bad also.

What about my dad? OMG, his food is the most expensive among 4 of us. He don't eat western food, he don't like the cheese. The restaurant owner introduce my dad to eat the don't know what it call Hokkien-Char liked spaghetti. Since it almost like Chinese food, my dad ordered it. It really taste like Hokkien-Char, and spaghetti as noodle with big prawn and some vegetable. Guess how much is this thing? RM28.90! My dad say he wouldn't order this thing again. Sorry I didn't take the photo of it, forgotten. Haha.

Gottlieb Road Assam Laksa

Yo, today I bring you to eat Assam Laksa at Gottlieb Road, opposite Penang Chinese Girls High School.
Assam laksa is a sour fish-based soup. Asam (or asam jawa) is the Malay word for tamarind, which is commonly used to give the stock its sour flavor. It is also common to use "asam keping" also known as "asam gelugor", dried slices of tamarind fruit, for added sourness. Modern Malay spelling is asam, though the spelling assam is still frequently used.

So my version of Asam Laksa is, MUST EAT FOOD WHEN COME TO PENANG as it is PENANG FAMOUS. It is noodles in sour spicy soup, not very spicy with fish, vegetables, onion, pineapple and sometimes fish ball.

There are many laksa here in Malaysia, got Assam Laksa, Kelatan Laksa, Johor Laksa, Sarawak Laksa, Thai Nyonya Laksa, Singapore Katong Laksa. Waa, so many laksa? Yes, but today I want to talk about Assam Laksa.

See the photo? You know what is it? It's infront of the stall, haha! If you guys went to a laksa stall before long time ago at Bagan Jermal there, near Gurney roundabout (now is a junction with traffic light). I went there when I am small, they moved to here long time ago.

Every time I go eat laksa, I will always order this Spring Roll, not like other spring rool, this one is inside without vegetables. How you can eat it is, dip it inside the laksa soup or with chili sauce.

I loves Assam Laksa a lot, as you can see I eat until almost dry. Hehe. There is still many place to eat nice Assam Laksa in Penang, next time I go I sure blog about it to share with you guys. Enjoy.

Look for this coffee shop at Gottlieb Road, opposites of Penang Chinese Girls' High School, near the junction there. ^^
