We ought to give the special among the special a try, thus we ordered a Ice Kacang Special at the premium price of RM 6. The regular ice kacang is topped with 3 fruits of the day, and one of the ice cream available (if we recall correctly, it would be either peanut or vanilla). Overall the combination worked well, not overly sweet, and shaved ice was smooth and not exhibiting the ice crystals that will cause displeasure to the tongue.
Here's the location.
I love the texture of the perfectly fried fish–the flesh is tender, soft, and spicy too. I can just have it with white rice.
We went to Passions of Kerala for lunch and decided to shoot a video!
Order the Big Breakfast for RM22. With the generous portion size of the dish, it is recommended to go for the sharing-style-eating. The dish combines broccoli hash brown, fried egg, chicken patties, grilled mushrooms, avocado and tomato with pieces of sourdough. For spice, sprinkle in some crushed black pepper.
If you still prefer the presence of rice in your main meals, then Farmer's Favourite (RM 17) is a worthy consideration. It is served using brown rice, and the chef has done a tremendous great work on the grilled chicken breast as the texture was moist and tender, contrary to the expectations we had. The sprinkles of parsley and paprika spices also further elevate the taste of entire plate of dish.
Just Moist is a dish dedicated for meat lovers, particularly steak lovers. The dish consists of a perfectly seared Rib Eye, served over a bed of mashed Sweet Potatoes, sauteed Shitake Mushrooms, blanched Broccoli and Cherry Tomatoes. The Steak was perfectly cooked... tender to the bite and carefully seasoned to the dot. Our only complain was the measly serving portion (can't help with a mere Rm 25)
The honey barbecued char siew here is almighty in taste. Each piece has a bigger portion of fat meat, then well coated with its signature sauce, rendering the char siew here superb in taste. One will regret if never order the extra char siew plate, as the char siew taste is somehow different compared to those serve with the noodles.
Overall, we did not think the noodles were of very outstanding, possibly better than average but not out of the world good.
The Baking Garage (at Lembah Permai) is not new, in fact, we have been wondering if they would move their business operations nearer to central Georgetown... and we are glad they did! Not only running as a bakery, the new branch at New World Park (known as Sin Seh Kai Artisan Bakery) actually offers a seemingly impressive brunch menu. The kitchen closes at 2:30 pm and by then, only light snacks shall be served (no heavy menu), so plan your time accordingly. It's easy to find Sin Seh Kai, the place is covered in transparent glasses with an open-kitchen, while the other side of the cafe is dedicated for diners dining-in the cafe. The setup is simple and straight-forward but the real pull factor is the wide range of home-made Pastries and artisan bread.
The Baking Garage in Lebuh Lembah Permai, Penang is a favourite place for shoppers who live nearby to pick up freshly baked items. Specializing in producing and supplying traditional, artistic & rustic artisanal breads, the outlet has plenty of goodness to offer. They recently opened their second location in New World Park on Burma Road. Known as Sin Seh Kai Artisan Bakery, the outlet with minimal frills is easy to find with its black signboard adorned with huge gold colored wordings.
For a different variant of the cheesey noodles, Golden Bowl is now offering a Signature House Curry (RM 12.90). The usage of curry resulting a richer and creamy taste, though sinful but probably can satiate those who has an affection of bolder taste.
All ingredients in big breakfast is nicely done to flavor, enjoy with a cup of coffee is just perfect.
The Golden Bowl at Batu Lanchang has opened a branch at New World Park. Here's the location.
We sampled a few of Korean signature dish such as Samgyetang Ginseng Stew (RM 38). The iconic Korean summer dish Ginseng Stew though may not suitable for the scorching hot weather in Malaysia but the taste outweigh the factor. Chicken is stuffed with glutinous rice, the broth is rich and tasty, and the ginseng flavoured chicken is tender and delicious. We could practically eat and chew the bone as it has been boiled for hours prior serving to us. Overall, this dish is a reflection on the sincerity of the restaurant put into their dish preparation.
If you are old enough to have heard of the name- Bee Won Korean Restaurant, you probably have an idea on the restaurant's background. With the ever-growing popularity on Korean food, the restaurant has recently opened up a new Korean BBQ place at New World Park. The setting is pretty much Korean roadside barbecue setting, with stainless steel tables and grills. The heat-intolerant would be less-excited to know that the place is not air-conditioned but if you are game for an al-fresco barbecue dining experience, this is the type of setting that you are looking for. Apart from the quintessential Korean barbecue items and alcohols (like Soju), the place offers a wide variety of Korean delights. It opens for lunch as well so if you are in the mood for a casual Korean fix, you can drop by for a quick meal. The prices are pretty much Korean-restaurant standard but the quality remains consistent (you would know if were a Bee Won customer).
It was a night of splendor with the luxuriousness of ambiance, service and exquisite scrumptious cuisine.
Farquhar Mansion is a fine dining restaurant near Eastern & Oriental Hotel.
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.
Once a popular spot for a comfort bowl of Hong Kong style wonton mee, Hong Kee Wan Thun Mee officially announced their closure on Facebook weeks ago.
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.
Milk Tea is signature, rich and milky taste.
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
The chunks of tender lamb with notes of herbs are complemented by a big plate of fragrant white rice and a salad of tomato, lemon, and gherkins. A spoon of the sauce with the rice is just heavenly.
Here's the location.
Halab Penang is probably one of the places where you can take someone for an amazing dining experience.
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.
Soul Cafe 也不例外，推出了四道邪恶的的圣诞精选！
Soul Cafe also caters special menu for events and celebrations.
Their food and coffee are pretty impressive as well as usual. And definitely not forgetting their lava cake lol.
The main highlight is obviously Roasted Turkey, which is served with sweet potatoes, chestnuts, vegetables, cranberry sauce and giblet gravy.

I highly recommend Durian Crème Brûlée too.
The thick and fragrant curry, where the fish heads are cooking is said to be delicious. It goes very well with roti prata and will keep you wanting more.
Overall, Living Room offers a nice ambience to dine at. The taste of certain food here is nice especially the Kam Heong pasta and Red Wine Stew Beef which are my favorites. These dishes will be my in my order list when I visit next time.
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
Oh and they have some cool stuffs for you to play if you look around. Apparently not a lot of people know how to play congkak to my surprise.
