I really love the Apom here, it is tasty, crunchy and cheap !
The Small Keong (小强) Wantan Mee and the Thai Style Pork Trotter Rice are the musts to try out. The Siew Pao (Roast Bun) here is also one of the unforgettable delicacies that are packed with nice butter crush skin while the barbecue pork is yummy.
This time is a Breakfast Visit, among the food available are some good Curry Mee, Loh / Hokkian Mee & Wantan Noodles, other stalls include Koey Chap, Char Koey Teow, Koey Teow Thng, Loh Bak, Tim Sum .....
Overall, Grand Orient Hotel is one of the finest hotels in Mainland with Amazon theme and the price per night is reasonable. One of the selling points of the hotel is the water park which is exclusive to members and hotel guests only. The Saturday night buffet is worth a try as the price per head is very reasonable.
Grand Orient Hotel boasts of having 46 different types of rooms in a total of 5 floors, with the price ranging from RM 160 to RM 288. The price best fits for business travelers or a vacation with a small family that looks around to hang over in Penang for some food hunting missions.
Cook Ideal Restaurant at Chai Leng Park dish up Poached Chicken with Chicken Rice or Ipoh Style Hor Fun, very similar to May Fong @ Butterworth. See Here
Cook Idea Sa Ho Fen is a big name at Chai Leng Park.... and has a huge facade too. It is known to serve some of the best, classic and unfussy Ipohan-influenced Hor Fun dishes. Seats were almost filled up as early as 9 am; the Hor Fun specialist also offers deboned Chicken, blanched Bean Sprouts to complete the set of the Ipoh Nga-Choy-Kai/ Kai-See Hor Fun (Ipoh-Bean Sprout Chicken with Hor Fun). There's no need to stumble over a menu- grab all the quintessential dishes and you are good to go. Food selection aside, the place is well-maintained with clean floors and bright space.... definitely a comfortable place to have a casual meal with family or friends.
Other than my all time favorite Thai Cuisine Fried Rice, Sunny Restaurant do serve many other different types of food. At Sunny Restaurant, you will never run out of good food to eat.
Having quick dinner here...a restaurant which I have never visited for the last 15 years.
The price is reasonable...
Verdict: Yes, the curry mee here definitely does not loose out to the more famous stall at Butterworth, further we can enjoy the curry mee with the roast pork, and also the Seremban Siew Pau which is imported frozen and baked right at the Kopi Tiam it self.
This rainy morning we tried out their Nasi Lemak and Noodles in Yam Soup. Not Bad
This round we also taste for Chocolate Strawberry Ice Cream. This is also good.
Must come again next month before heading to long X'mas holidays.
Overall taste wise, is just as good with others places, however you do find more exotic choices, of course with an corresponding increase in Price, the 2 of us had 10 basket with tea, which cost us just below RM50/-, for the service and ambiance provided, which is 30% higher then other places.
One of the Best lamb soup, I ever had, is in this Food Court at Chai Leng Park. One can have this with Roti Banggali or with Rice, or even a Nasi Lemak sold by the same stall.
Among the Good stuffs here to my taste buds are the Satay, the Koey Chap, the Oyster omelette. Duck Meat Koey Teow Thng (first from left) Picture above, the Otak Otak, (Penang Steam Spicy Fish & Egg Custard wrapped in Banana Leaf (center pic above)).
