Dinner At KhunThai, Teluk Kumbar, Penang

FOR DINNER MY GIRL SUGGESTED THAI FOOD AND SHE JUST KNOWS WHICH ONE TO GO... It is called KhunThai Authentic Thai Restaurant in Teluk Kumbar.  I have heard of it only recently when one of my foodie friends went there with her family.  But we did not know the way and Waze sort of assisted us along the way.  But along the way, we were led to a small village that did not lead us to Khunthai, instead it was a dead end... So much for Waze!   hahahaha... Somehow we managed to find it after reversing our car to where we have turned .... At the junction, we noticed a small sign showing drivers not to turn into the village, instead just drive on straight using the main road instead of going through the village..... Perhaps GPS always led patrons to go through the village, thus the sign....

Anyway, it was worth going there for something new and authentic.... 
We were enthralled by the ambience..... 
So beautiful to dine by the sea.... 
Looks very authentic....
And our orders were....
These five dishes.... 

Kerabu mango.... lots of cashew nuts... very appetizing!
Steamed fish Thai style....
I find the sauce a bit too sweet... 
Fried Kangkung with red sauce...
Glass noodles with prawns....
The food was not bad actually....
We wanted to order more but we might not be able to finish them all....
The dinner for five dishes cost around RM108....
Smiles to the Thai Food.... 
Maybe one day we will come by again to taste other dishes...
Tom yam and green curry are the recommended ones, so I was told...

  2. Wow, so nice dining on the beach. I like the kerabu mango, very appetising. Thai food usually hot,spicy & sourish & how come the steamed fish sauce taste sweet. All in all everything is good,

    1. Yes, the fish a bit sweet and also sour.. I prefer it to be sourish only... maybe not used to its sweetness...

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
