Both the tomyam soup and clear soup we had were flavourful. The flavour was balanced, especially the clear soup which exhibit soothing flavour and not dull even having its alone. The tomyam is not the type that has extreme sour taste or fiery hot that can cater to majority of commoners' taste. It is notable the soup portion is considered generous.
I like the decoration here............The restaurant ambient make me feel like to eat more!!
Food here is self service, where you need to take your own ingredient and then give it to the waiter there.
Meat crabs cooked in sour and spicy sauce @ RM 80.00 I love to eat bread dipped in this sauce. Eating crabs cooked in this way can be very delicious but also very time consuming and messing. Anyway, we have the time to enjoy our meal.
65 Ondo Bakery Cafe is a nice place to dine in for some nice chat over coffee with family and friend.
The Yam Toast was almost too pretty to miss- sweet, delicious home-made Yam paste spread over their soft-pillowy bread and beautifully coated with fresh cream. It was light on the palate... we could taste the Yam Paste but it was not too bold. The sweetness was also beautifully balanced
Overall, 65 Ondo Bakery Cafe is worth visiting but be prepared to be thronged by a large crowd.
Hup Hoe Biscuit store so many good-old-days biscuits, such as iced gems (atapchi), sesame biscuits, bread rusks, bread sticks, pong pneah and etc that set to reminiscent your wonderful childhood. Many of the items here hold a close connection to my childhood life.
Shrimp Tau Sa Peah The filling looks about the same, only light red in colour, but the fragrance is different, and it has a short 5 day shelf life .
Unicorn Cake Pop was available. It was miniature Pandan-flavored cake coated with Cream in the shape of Unicorn. The Pandan cake was not too sweet, but the flavor felt a little artificial. Nothing out of the ordinary but we do agree that it was an Instagrammable sweet treat.
这里的Fish & Chips有点不一样 除了比较鼓鼓加上非常脆口吃起来完全没腥味相信使用了新鲜鱼肉制成
Steamed Emperor Red Snapper in Nyonya Style is priced at RM 45, which we thought was pretty reasonable. The Red snapper is fish, and Nyonya style cooking gives the fish a moderate sour and spicy taste, akin to a toned down Thai flavour. There are other steaming style offered, such as clear style and Teochew style. Savouring the fish for our dinner was a true gratification.
Bukit Tambun is the de-facto Seafood place for Penangites- when we want to look for fresh and inexpensive Seafood, Bukit Tambun is the place to go. The recent development of Batu Kawan (the neighborhood next to Bukit Tambun) has brought in large influx of visitors. The demand for fresh Seafood has increased tremendously and many new Seafood restaurants have sprung up in the recent years. Floating Seafood Paradise is one of them. But apart from offering extraordinary seafood dishes, the dining atmosphere is one of a kind too... the restaurant floats. It sits on a man-made fish pond and one would feel the 'rocking dizziness' (like being hit by waves while on boat) while dining in-house but that's part of the package. There's no menu here but the server will recommend whatever they are ready to serve on that day. To find the place, drive along Jalan Bukit Tambun and look for the signage on your right, turn in and you will find it shortly on your left.
Lou Xiang's signature Crab Porridge is one of the must-orders. Unlike those that are cooked for hours, Lou Xiang's Porridge has the rice-shape maintained; but the seafood sweetness is not compromised. Our order was served with 2 relatively huge mud crabs, and for the price of Rm 66, we thought it was a price worth-paying for. While the Crab Porridge was amazing, their Braised Chicken with Soy Sauce was equally delicious. The Chicken was most tender with a mellow sweetness and sleek Rose-wine flavor. Good on its own but even better with their home-made Chili dip. One of the rare dishes that I am willing to go all out to eat again.
The signature here is their Mee Goreng, but we recommend you top up another RM1 to enjoy the sotong. To make their Mee Goreng unique, Chef Hashim uses Chinese wok with a thinner carbon steel to allow more heat infuse to the noodles, resulting a stronger smoky taste. We enjoyed the hint of sweetness in the noodles, contributed by the special sauces prepared by Chef Hashim's wife and mother-in-law that used more sweet potatoes than usual.
Of all the food that i try here, Curry Karaage Don is my favorite.
Cafe hopping is not really a famous thing to do at Bukit Tambun, the fishing village is seafood paradise known for an insane amount of seafood restaurants but what if I told you that you could have both in one go? O House Station Cafe is both a cafe and a seafood restaurant, it promotes home-styled seafood dishes yet in a cafe setting. The quaint cafe is a stone's throw distance away from the junction near Simpang Ampat and Batu Kawan (entrance to Bukit Tambun) and has an old-school, classic interior decor. Do not expect the usual cafe fare here, it offers home-cooked delights and seasonal seafood offering. While simple rice and noodle dishes are commonly ordered here, their seafood dishes are not to be forsaken. They are subject to availability (supply of seafood). Ask the friendly proprietor on the freshest produce of the day and she will be able to recommend a few; make your reservation in advance if you have anything specifically in mind otherwise.
The Stir Fried Vermicelli Noodles with Mud Crab is Sieng Kee's signature dish... there was an option to choose between Roe Crabs or Meat Crabs, we had the latter one. The Crabs were fresh and beautifully cooked but probably baking them was a better idea. The whole dish was a little greasier than expected... making it harder to hammer the crabs.
