This kopitiam is run by the family of Leong Kok [...]

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.

Curry Laksa @ USJ14

Last Saturday after sending the car to the workshop in USJ, we were looking for some breakfast when I remembered a Curry Laksa review done by masak-masak a while ago.
