Air Itam Market Assam Laksa Restaurant

Air Itam Market Jalan Pasar (Market Road) 11500 Air Itam, Penang Malaysia

Penang Assam Laksa or better known as Penang Laksa, is originated from the emergence of Chinese and Malay elements (Baba and Nyonya). The specialty of Penang Laksa is its thick and sour minced fish soup with a little spiciness. That is because the soup is cooked with chili paste and assam (tamarind) water to prevent the fishy smell. The soup is served with rice noodles and vegetables, and shrimp paste. The shrimp paste adds sweetness to the soup, which distinguish Penang Laksa from other types of Laksa in Malaysia.

It's alright but no big deal. I didn't think it was worth the travel to have this really super overrated Laksa. But kudos to all the old people around this store, really so energetic at their age and still cooking and serving!

My verdict : With its 4 ringgit per bowl price, everything’s worth it! The sour tamarind sauce, the salty and thick fish stock blended so well with chillies and the herbs and noodles and everything on it! Thankfully, I had the chance to understand the logic of CNN in naming Penang Assam Laksa as 7th out of 50 Most Delicious Foods in the World! It was indeed, delicious!

My Penang laksa. The soup base is very flavorful and filled with generous amount of flaked mackerels. The 'ha-ko'/ thick prawn paste amplify the flavor of this dish much, much more. Sweet, sourish taste with refreshing mint and onion slices stimulates all my taste buds!

The soup not really thick but it have the aromatic hint of coconut and curry blend in it. The bowl of curry mee is served with the noodles, cuttle fish, coagulated pig blood and tauhu-pok and the curry paste. Indulge this sinfully addictive bowl of curry noodles and you will totally in love with them.

The Brown Marbled Grouper is one of the most-ordered dishes, we had ours steamed and served with premium Soy sauce. The fish was fresh with the most delicate flesh, the texture was addictively bouncy with a hint of seafood sweetness. It was good but could be better if it was served to us piping hot (did not come as hot as expected). The Octopus was alright, though we were a little underwhelmed with the portion and price, we thought the special sauce blended well with the Seafood (the winning factor was the subtle sweetness with a mild heat). If Rice is too mainstream, go for their Singaporean Bee Hoon. For Rm 5, we thought the portion was rather generous and the noodles were expertly cooked (and seasoned). Though there were some hits and misses, we were generally pleased with the food quality.

Leong Hee Seafood (龙禧海鲜小馆) is a proud Penang brand that stands the test of time, established in the 70's, Leong Hee specializes in catering services (wedding or occasions); the extended branch at Paya Terubong is well-received by the residents living nearby. Like most Chu Char places in Penang, it offers quite an extensive local Chinese delights but at unbeatable prices. The place is often full on weekends and the regular patrons would make their reservation in advance so if you have something particular in mind, it is suggested that you make advance reservation to beat the queue too.

If you have the time to wait for Hock Chai to finish his cooking, you will know more about each dish and his explanation on his food passion to you. First of all, the introductory dish among that day’s long list of dishes was Korean Army Hotpot – RM45. This dish is actually prepared to suit those American soldiers who were stationed in South Korea. This dish is a mixture of Korean and Western. The ingredients of this hotpot consist of Cheese, Kimchi, Ham, Luncheon Meat, Cheese Sausage, Spring Onions, Chili Slices, Mushroom, Baked Beans and Tofu.

Overall, Zi Zai Restaurant offers a nice dining experience and offers a reminiscence of home cook style dishes, as their restaurant signboard also suggests the title "ko zha bi". The taste still lingering in my taste buds during recalling and it truely reflects the authentic home cook dishes. Price and quantity is user friendly at the same time and it would be an excellent choice for family dine in. Plenty of parking spaces available but the numbers of tables in the restaurant is somehow limited but I believe extra tables can be added at the external area of the restaurant.

The well-received help-yourself concept of Tom Yum is being taken to a different level at Super One Pot Restaurant, Bukit Bendera; it plays a brilliant bet on food presentation. The name might have suggested how... all self-picked ingredients are cooked then served in a small pot... individually. But that's all we reckon, variety is pretty standard-average here (with reasonable prices), with one or two special add ons such as Lor Bak, Pork Chop and Grilled Shrimps. If I must recommend one item, it would be their fiery hot Tom Yum. To find Super One Pot Restaurant, drive along Jalan Bukit Bendera, before reaching to the cable car station, Super Ont Pot Restaurant is on your right (beside the entrance to the Jade Emperor God Temple (天公坛).

Lured by the promising images shared online, we paid a visit to 118 Bean Sprout Chicken Rice at Farlim.... housed in one of the shop houses a stone's throw distance away from the Farlim Night Market. Opened for less than a year, the place has proven to be one of the favorite Chicken Rice places for regular residents. It opens as early as 10:30 am and a steady inflow of customers were seen at 10:40 am (we were there early at 10:30 am). If not for takeaways, there are comfortable chairs and seats available for in-house dining; the menu is pretty standard with smooth blanched Chicken as the main highlight while tummy fillers include Wan Ton Mee, Ipoh Hor Fun; as well as sides like blanched Bean Sprouts, braised Tofu and Egg. Budget-friendly prices but none of the dishes we had impressed us....

Dragon Phoenix Seafood Restaurant

They do serve a wide variety of dishes and their specialties of the day/week will be written on their white board, which will be placed right in front of their stall. Their way of preparing dishes was more to the Thai style I believe, and most of the dishes were reasonably priced. You can expect some good seafood dishes from Dragon Phoenix too.

We had one of their signature dishes-- Tom Yam Seafood soup for Rm30. The soup was served using a pre-heated claypot and the soup comes with big and succulent prawns, fish meat, squid, sea asparagus and some clams. The Tom Yam was overall, very appetizing and good to my taste; with a balanced taste of sweet, sour and spiciness. The spiciness was perfectly okay for me, if you wish the soup be slightly spicier, do tell the lady when she's taking your orders. The portion was good enough for us to divide into six small bowls. I just love to enjoy Tom Yam soup with loads of seafood ingredients. Recommended.

There is nothing to shout about because it is quite a common dish in any restaurant around. The slices of pork were well marinated with cornstach before deep fried. The ingredients of sweet & sour sauce were brought to a boil and serve hot over the deep-fried slices of pork. Loved by olds and youngs.

Hailed by many as one of the best local longtime fixture for Dim Sum in the neighborhood of Farlim/ Air Hitam, K.K. Dim Sum Garden (佳佳点心苑) is usually packed with extended families, neighborhood regular patrons and adventurous foodies during peak hours (8 am to 11 am) in the weekends. It has the classic Malaysian Dim Sum joint setting- with simple tables and chairs being set up by the road side while the aged servers pushing the Dim Sum carts or carrying the Dim Sum baskets around. K.K is said to be one of the earliest Dim Sum joints in the neighborhood and its opening can be traced back to at least a decade ago. Do not expect a big variety but some straight-forward, unassuming timeless but solid Dim Sum favorites with one or two unique in-house specialties.
