Crisp of Life: Zi Zai Restaurant @ Paya Terubong, Penang

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.

Restoran Zi Zai at Paya Terubong, Penang - Bangsar Babe

The bill came up to slightly over RM100 for the above. Pretty reasonable, I feel. While the portion about would usually feed 4-5 pax, there were 6 of us that evening. I was too full to eat more as I had two bowls of asam laksa an hour before dinner.
