Ah Boy Kwayteow T’ng, Penang

Have you heard about this stall?  Apparently most of the locals in Penang want to keep this secret. In a recent trip up north to Penang, we were told to search for this place along Argyll Road.  So the Sunday before we left the island, we dutifully drove along Argyll Road looking out for a [...]

Sandakan Food Trail (1)

Did you know that Sandakan is a great place for foodies?  Haha, I didn’t know that until I had a chance to visit this quaint town recently.  It’s actually the 2nd biggest town in Sabah and located at the north-eastern tip of the state.  Sandakan is actually very rich historically, with many places of interest [...]

Penang Food Stories (Chapter 3): Song River Cafe @ Gurney Drive

I know some people scoff at Song River Cafe being a good place to eat in Penang, maintaining that it’s only meant for tourists and that most self-respecting Penangites would not patronize that place.  Well, I’m not really bothered about this, because I have my favourite dishes there and yeah, I am not a Penangite [...]

Penang Food Stories (Chapter 2): Lam Ah Kopitiam – damn nice Beef Noodles & Oyster Omelette

“Gubak Kway Teow”, that’s what the Penangites call their Beef Kway Teow (flat Rice Noodles).  It seems that Penang had 2 famous Gubak Kway Teow outlets founded way back in the 1960s, one was at Victoria Street and the other’s at the junction of Beach Street (now Lebuh Pantai) and Acheen Street (now Lebuh Acheh).  [...]

Penang Food Stories (Chapter 1) – Food hunting in Pengkalan Weld

In the past few months, we made a couple of food trips to Penang. The main objective was really to gorge ourselves silly, checking out food places recommended by friends as well as re-visiting old favourites. Of course not everything we ate was worth recommending to others, so I’ll just skip those not-so-good ones. In [...]

Gurney Delights @ Kota Kemuning

No, you didn’t read it wrong – there IS a place called “Gurney Delights” in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam. It’s a neat little café, unpretentious and simplistic in its set-up, located in the midsection of a block of shoplots in the Kota Kemuning commercial centre. I first noticed this outlet some months ago, yet had [...]

Penang One – Penang Delights under One Roof!

One Sunday morning, feeling in the mood for some Penang delicacies, we took a drive to Puchong where we heard there’s this café that’s serving a whole lot of Penang goodies.  If you have to go to Puchong, ideally do it on a Sunday – that’s when traffic is a breeze and parking is not [...]

328 Katong Laksa

We made a short trip down south to Singapore a couple of weekends ago. It was almost a “Touch & Go” trip… we were there to watch the Lion King musical (which was totally so enjoyable!) and the rest of the time was just to eat and shop. As we were staying with my good [...]

Best Lorbak in Penang!

*Pureglutton comes in and sweeps away the cobwebs and dust covering every corner of this blog* OK, now that I have done some housecleaning here (I know, I’ve been MIA for some time, lol!), I better put up the pics of the best Lorbak we had in Penang, before the pics expire or get lost [...]

Assam Laksa & Coconut Jelly in Penang

Continuing with my makan spree in Penang… After the 2 breakfasts that we had, we went to Queensbay Mall (because it was also raining and we had to abandon any outdoor jaunts) … not that we had anything to shop for, but it was more like we had to exercise a bit to work off [...]

2 Breakfasts in 1 Morning – Penang

Continuing our food jaunt in Penang… the next morning found ourselves back in Gurney Drive again. Of course the day scenes there are very much different from the glitzy lights the night before. It was a wet morning – the early morning drizzle had somewhat “cleaned” the hazy air and it was really refreshing taking [...]

Chicken Rice in USJ14

A few months ago I blogged about the Curry Laksa in USJ14 in this kopitiam called Mei Sek. This is a corner coffeeshop in the row of shops near the fruit stalls in USJ14. I was told that in the evening, that same kopitiam has a Chicken Rice stall which is very good. So that [...]

Nasi Lemak Daun Pisang

This morning I bought 45 packets of the above Nasi Lemak Daun Pisang. Yes, 45 packs – not for myself lah – but for a breakfast meeting in my office. Some of my colleagues can easily polish off 2-3 packets each. Yes, it is that good! Also, because the packs are rather small lah. It’s [...]

Charms – revisited

It was LL’s idea to go to Charms for lunch today. Yes, it’s that gaily-decorated cafe you see as you walk (from the New Wing) towards the Old Wing’s TGV cinema on the 2nd Floor. I’ve been there many times and have done an earlier review of this place. LL declared that he was famished, [...]
