Verdict : Decent Boiled Chicken, tasty enough, the only one that open for Lunch. The “Ipoh style” koey teow is only an approximation of the actual Ipoh Version, while the Prawns Dumpling is not bad
It's no secret that Butterworth is home to a few good restaurants that serve delicious Poached Chicken and one of the oldest names in this "expertise" is May Fong Restaurant at Kampung Benggali, Butterworth. It's impossible to miss the place during lunch hours, the place is often thronged with regular patrons especially during weekends. Families bringing the old and young is a common sight here, it is possibly the de-facto dining place for those living in the neighborhood. The menu is small here, in fact, only Poached Chicken and Wan Ton.... with Rice or Ipoh-styled Hor Fun (with add-ons like blanched Sprouts or Vegetables) but more than enough to entice the crowd. The best time to visit would be around 11 am or expect to wait for at least half an hour before your orders are served.
Dishes order up this evening is their version of Char Hu, (Fried Fish with soya sauce), Tu Kar (Braised Pork Trotters), Claypot Herbal chicken, and Stir Fried Pea Sprouts & Bean Sprouts, all which comes up to RM50 with 2 rice and some herbal drinks. Verdict: Excellent
Verdict : Not really my cup of tea, Nothing wrong with it, i just prefer a more robust version, and the Braised Chicken Feet at Ah Kok Hock Kian Mee (Link) have spoiled me for other Chicken Feet, and there other alternative food that i much prefer in Butterworth.
So we drop by early one evening, just two of us, and duly was guided to ordered the following items, Of course the Curry Prawns, Deep Fried Chicken, Kai Lan, Rice and Chinese Tea. As we were early @ 6.30pm, we got serve very fast with the food, which I believe was precook (to increase service speed) while we were there, the restaurant started to fill up, most patrons ordering about the same items as we did. My comments, which may not be the same as yours, we had a “Not bad, decent meal” for around RM40.
Right next to the bustling Butterworth outer ring road, Kampung Benggali is home to many local SMEs as well as private residential. Needless to say, the neighborhood does have something to offer (in terms of food). Koay Teow Th'ng with Roasted Pork seems to be the favorite food in the neighborhood but there are a few notable ones, with the most famous one being 'Kim Seng' but for this trip, we had 'Kampung Benggali Xio Bak Koay Teow Th'ng'... just a few shops away from 'Kim Seng'. Though less-crowded, the food quality was rather disappointing...
Overall, Coffee Venture is a place worthy come for the coffee for a relaxing afternoon or evening, but the food may need more trial before a conclusive verdict can be placed.
Venture Coffee Raja Uda is a unique cafe for those who love the relaxing ambient for chitchat.
Environment inside Coffee Venture is nice and comfortable
Grab some good quick and cheap bento set for family lunch. We pick PENTAGO 5 STUDIO set...since it is a good taste with most competitive offered price -
A westernize restaurant.
The interior of the Cafe is modern and simple at the same time with hanging light bulbs and very laid back type of seating area, especially those on the second floor.
As far as freshness is concerned, Little June nailed it. We had a few types of their Sushi and found that the prices are generally on the higher side. The Sushi Rice was nicely seasoned with a hint of Vinegar but they could not really hold well and the Rice tends to break apart. Freshness was good though and the cuts were alright.
店内还有新鲜的三文鱼🍣 和三文鱼头 🐟价钱绝对超乎您想象🥳
Most people are after the delicious Hainanese Chicken Chop, a fairly priced item at RM 13.50 Personally, we enjoyed the chicken chop. The large chicken fillet has been cut into small slices, and the thick gravy complemented it well by introducing a nice aroma yet without affecting the crispy texture of the chicken chop. Although it appeared to be a heavy dish but it tasted light and easy-going in the palate.
We sat down at the Air-condition area, and the Roast duck was as delightful as always. Best in Town.
As stated their Speciality is Roast Duck, and they are definitely the best I had in Butterworth. Also available are the usual Roast Pork, sausages, and other roast meats.
Everyone come to LOU SANG....Huat ! Heng ! Ong!
Stir Fried Spaghetti with Thai Basil Chicken on the other hand, was a tastebud charmer. Inspired by the Thai Pad-Krao technique, the simplicity of Thai Basil, Long Beans and Chicken Meat translated into an amiable dish. The seasoning was a little sweet but the combination was delicious. The addition of Long Beans added a bit of crunch to the dish and for Rm 7.90, we thought it was a dish with great value for money.
整体上这三道泰式料理还算好吃的，无论是锅气还是火候都掌握得很好，只是太 over 的辣度，让人不知所措。
You can choose to have either white rice or tomato rice, then pick your favorite dishes from the wide selections available. Of course, follow the locals' way and drench your rice with a variety of curries to give it an unique flavour. On top of that, the Nasi Tomato is affordable in price and would not hurt your budget much.
The name "Ko Cha Mee" brings evocative images as one would be able to link that to the delicacies we used to enjoy during earlier days. Housed in one of the corner business lots at Raja Uda, Ko Cha Mee is a noodle specialist that offers something similar to "Lam-Mee". For the uninitiated, Lam Mee is closely linked to Nyonya families and often served during birthday celebrations as the dish signifies longevity; the flavorful broth is usually cooked with Prawns and Pork Ribs/ Chicken, complemented by a dash of home-made Sambal Belacan. Ko Cha Mee offers such a platform to savor the flavors of the past, but if you are looking for a variety, this is not a place for you as the small menu only specializes in noodles (with optional add-ons). Albeit the catchy name, we did not find the food outstanding nor worth the distance to travel all the way to Raja Uda; probably a regular Lam Mee in the neighborhood is on par with theirs.
For me - the taste is quite similar like Chinese Birthday Noodle （寿面）.
