First Time To Maxim Dim Sum At Sungai Dua, Penang

Third morning in Penang...

By now Andy is quite familiar with the island already, well, at least with some places of good food. After staying here for few years now, he knows at least 30% on how to go about ... hahaha....(have I mentioned he is poor in directions? Like mother, like son!)

Back to our 3rd morning or should I say 11am brunch time, he led us to Maxim Dim Sum in Sungai Dua...
First time in history...
my son recommended dim sum shop to us... 
it was quite crowded...but we managed to find a side table....
the shop is quite big... maybe two shops made into one...
Advertising for Tooth Paste Teeth before food....
Which picture is more qualifying for Tooth Paste Advertisement?
hahahaha...
oopps...why am I like WIB? or MIB?
(Woman in Black)
Our initial orders...
Adding some extras after few minutes.... 
And that's not all... 
There were more to that...no time to take pictures...
Our chopsticks were too busy... LOL...
And the best thing is.....
The bill only came to RM49 something!
So cheap that we came again the next morning to try other varieties...
How was the Dim Sum?
Well, we sure want to come again... 
No doubt about that!  :)

  1. Food in Penang are cheaper and definitely cheaper than in Kota Kinabalu. Dim Sum for less than RM50.00 is really really cheap.

  2. Whah....Claire, u look sexy in big black spectacles :D My gosh....those dimsum makes me drool. Looks too good....mmm. I miss Penang. Sg Dua? That's the place (don't mean the shop...haha) where I had my first dinner the day I arrived Penang. Actually it was very late dinner around 9pm....late huh. The only thing left was roti canai....never heard of before! Didn't know how it look like. I was given a choice of stuff to go with it. Finally chose sugai. My gosh.......how horrible it tasted......haha. But well, after 3 yrs not touching any roti canai, I fell in love with it one day after trying it with curry dhal. Then I had it EVERYDAY for breakfast for a whole year!!! How extreme huh!....haha

    Mary: Sugai? what is that to go with roti canai?? hahaha.. I also never heard of it.. normally roti canai goes well with curry fish, chicken or dhal. Nowadays I prefer capati and tosai cos healthier.. oil-less.. hehehe..


    lena: OK, I do that one day.. hahaa...

  5. Nice? Seems lots of nice eating places there...including one famous Thai restaurant, I think. But far from city lah...cannot go if no car, nobody to bring - taxi in Penang - daylight robbery.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
