Head over to Ixora Hotel Penang as they present a splendid feast for your and your loved ones during this holy month of Ramadan.
Ixora Hotel Penang brings the utmost care and attention to every detail of your experience.
Mango Lassi goes perfectly well with their Banana Leaf Rice Set.
The hotel is also serving Tuan Yuan Reunion Buffet Dinner (团圆年夜饭) on Chinese New Year's Eve (24 January 2020).
Ixora Hotel never fail to impress their guest with their food from their buffet menu every time when ever there is a holiday season or celebration in Malaysia.
To enjoy the best flaming Chicken wing in Butterworth area, head for gluttons street at Chai Leng Park (Location is attached), middle section You do have to wait though, while its being charbroiled, right infront of you, tasty, succulent, smoky, excuse me for cutting this post short,
There are many more verities of food here, from a section of lok lok stalls, Penang Favourites of Char Koey Teow, Hokkian Mee, even the KL version of Hokkian Mee Can be found, Tim Sum, Curry Fish Head, Clay Pot Rice, Economy Rice Dishers, and a Small section of Indian Food can also be found. If you drop by at the right time, you can find durian.
I really love the Apom here, it is tasty, crunchy and cheap !
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.
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.
I like the environment here and the food is good too.
So what is KL Hokkien Mee? The noodles are bigger, fatter, and its cook in lard (Pork fat) oll and comes loaded with crispy pork crutons (Deep Fried Pork Lardons) and sambal belachan, and lots of dark soya sauce. Verdict: Just like its done in KL, Tasty enough
Prawn Chee Cheong Fun is a safe option... with Cabbage and Shrimps... served with light Soy sauce and their home-made Chili paste. The Rice rolls were less smoother than the usual ones but definitely fluffier and chewier. It was easy and light on the palate, we also like the fact that they served their food piping hot
如果肠粉不是你的菜，凌蒸香,正宗廣東石磨腸粉,restoran Ling Zheng Xiang也有售卖炖汤和包子。总有一样适合你的胃。
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.
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.
