The savouries (i to iv, vii) were really interesting, in particular i, iii and iv. II was really pretty too. Overall an interesting fusion experience, with much Indian influence.
Their tasting menu mainly revolves around the produce-driven concept, to recreate nostalgic flavours using bold innovative cooking methods.
Reasons to visit Communal Table by Gen 根: inventive contemporary Malaysian cuisine; serious portions that are perfect for sharing; highly recommend gourmets from the globe pay a visit
The moment you enter the aesthetically rustic space, thou shall sense that this is the perfect spot for any coffee aficionado- particularly specialty coffee. The soothing coffee aroma that is wafting through the air easily set your mood at ease. And that makes it the perfect moment to slowly unwind the day with a good cuppa along some hearty nosh.
Olive Oil Zucchini Bread (MYR 13) Comes with some sea salt sprinkles and whirl of smooth crème fraîche.
Both Cafe Latte (H) and (I) taste simply delicious. A beautiful combination of coffee and almond milk that packs a punch, delicious and smooth. In addition, what I love about this cafe is that they don't charge extra for Almond Milk. Sounds great right.
A trip to The Top Penang, is definitely a must for those visiting Penang… Currently the offer price is RM75 per adult or RM55 per child for the 3 main attractions – aquarium, Jurassic and skywalk… Or you can get full tickets at RM108 per adult or RM88 per child for all 16 attractions for the whole day…
The recommended way to see everything that The Top Penang offers in Komtar is to get a Fun Pass which allows multiple entries to every attraction except the Augmented Reality Virtual, The Gravityz, Formula One & TOP Capsule. It costs RM78 for MyKad Malaysian holders and RM99 for all other adults, and RM48 for Malaysian children/RM58 for foreign children.
The main attraction is on Level 68 where one gets to experience the open-air Rainbow Walk and look down via the glass to 249 metres above ground. So when compared to the sky towers listed above admittedly the Top Komtar isn’t that high but this view still left me breathless.
Nevertheless, we are sold and would come back again for their croissant, and to try its other offerings.
Here's the location.
That Sunday morning, weather was lovely that after waking up at the cozy bed of Deluxcious Hotel, we immediately retun to Le Petit for another round of visit, haha.
So yours truly was given the opportunity to stay at the JEN Penang Georgetown by Shangri-La, on a recent trip to Penang and it was definitely a beautiful and memorable stay….
If you are looking for a reasonably priced mid-range hotel in George Town, I would recommend Hotel Jen Penang as the location is convenient to get around to most sights in the city centre.
The well known Hotel Jen in Penang is one of Hong Kong based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, one of the world’s premier hotel owners and operators.
The taste of the wantan mee are almost the same as before despite the chewiness of the noodle not as much and the gravy is more starchy. As for the Char Hor Fun, the taste is packed with wok aroma.
Tok Tok Mee Noodle House, used to known as Hong Kee Wantan Noodle now is operate by the next generation where the legacy of bamboo noodle was passed down. The taste of the wantan mee are almost the same as before despite the chewiness of the noodle not as much and the gravy is more starchy. As for the Char Hor Fun, the taste is packed with wok aroma.
If you’re reminiscing the old taste, visit the place and try out their dishes.
Pitt Street Koay Teow Thng is one of the famous Koay Teow Thng in Penang that has been around for 60years. The original location of this Koay Teow Thng was at Pitt Street. It was moved to the new location at Carnarvon Street a few years back. One of the Specialists of this shop is the fish balls that are made of Eel Fish and the fish balls are homemade. Pitt Street Koay Teow Thng also selling Char Koay Teow now and the taste is promising too.
Koay Teow Th'ng is flat rice noodles, served in soup. It is topped with their homemade Eel Fishballs, pork meat that has been minced and flattened, and we were surprised to find some golden deep-fried Pork Lards in the bowl as well. The noodles were silky smooth, every ingredient is in perfect harmony. The Eel fishball though has a slightly different texture than the usual fishball bounciness, we can taste the delicate sweetness of the eel itself. It is definitely a hearty bowl of delicious Koay Teow Th'ng!
The broth was out of this world. Subtly rich with the extract from the bones.
Tasty savoury fragrant KL style wanton noodles with tasty plump wantons.
Polo Bun with Butter (菠萝油) – RM4.50, a very typical Hong Kong pastry. The top of the bun was covered with slightly sweet crust while the inner of the bun was stuffed with a piece of creamy butter. In Penang, it is so difficult to get Polo Butter Bun. That is the reason I came to this cafe to try out the bun. It is in fact one of their best-sellers and usually sold out by noon. The top crust was so nice and the bun was soft and warm. Having it with soft and creamy butter was simply satisfying. This bun is perfect when it is served warm.
For the menu, although I thought that the price is wallet-friendly but the choices are limited.
As for us – we’ll definitely recommend all three stalls mentioned above!
♥Verdict: Definitely a place that you should put into your Penang food hunting list!
Located at Lebuh Cecil these Penang Street Food are few of the best that highly recommended, with the champion won for the Jawa Mee competition, this stall is one of the shinning stars that shouldn't be missed. As for the Laksa, the taste and the flavor is very appetizing and packed with ingredients, these are the great Street Food of Penang.
Narrow Marrow had been on our list for some time, and it truly did not disappoint when we finally visited it during this Penang trip. It’s definitely one of our favourite cafes in Penang.
Narrow Marrow is now open in Beach Street as of 30th July 2020.
There is the dirty bourbon tiramisu, and the kahlua tiramisu. The latter with the kahlua coffee-flavored liqueur leaves one with a feeling of contentment
Besides the Teochew-style noodle, you can go all the way through to the Steamed Hor Fun with Groupa Fish Fillet and Roasted Pork with Crispy Noodle.
L Kitchen is a place where it’s suitable for all ages.
Overall, the food here was nice and some of the dishes were unique. However, certain dishes had a sweet ending
Pinxin also does a range of vegan sauces and condiments. We actually intended to head back to pick some of these up, but ran out of time. Never mind; we’ll definitely go back when we are next allowed to travel to Penang.
It is a lovely place with many seating places to choose from. The environment is nice and comfortable.
Along with a nice cosy ambiance to go with it. If you have not tried their desserts before, you should :)
Creamy tong-sui is showcased in the bubur cha cha, green bean sago, and the black glutinous rice, with the former cooked in coconut milk and the latter complemented by a topping of thick coconut milk.
Here's the location.
The coffee spaghetti was made with creamy coffee sauce and chorizo pork sausage. 🍝 It tasted surprisingly good. I originally expected this to be more of a novelty dish but it was rich and delicious, with an aftertaste of roasted coffee beans and pepper
这一家cafe超级大一间；结合roastery, cafe, restaurant和academy在同一个屋檐下
I like the food here and also the environment.
The main highlight is obviously Roasted Turkey, which is served with sweet potatoes, chestnuts, vegetables, cranberry sauce and giblet gravy.

Tiger CKT is one of those famous CKT that located in a Old Coffee Shop in George Town, which is open for breakfast and lunch, perserving is RM7.50 at this date and time, comes with 2 large prawns, and will customize the CKT to your requirements. I would rate this place is as one of the Top CKT in town. (personal).
The Char Koay Teow may not look much different from the others, but it was really delicious, fragrantly fried with lots of “wok-hei” flavour! We suspected the use of duck egg made the delectable plate even more fragrant. It didn’t leave a very greasy feel too. Much better than the one we had from an unknown stall in Pulau Tikus the previous day!
The place was in in full swing on Sunday morning circa 10.00am and we were lucky to secure the last table or else we might need to wait table for hours according to Ken. We placed our order and wait patiently for our food to be served. There are other foods available in the coffee shop too such as prawn noodle (known as Hokkien Mee in Penang), Lor Bak and etc.
