A Nameless Place In Taman Perkaka, Penang

GOING TO GET SOME "FIRING" FROM WHOEVER ASKING FOR THE NAME OF THIS SHOP...  Yes, I am the one who will get fired.... for I forgot to look at the name of the shop.... Too hungry perhaps.. Or too hasty to go off after dinner... Whatever it is, Hopefully someone can tell me the name....

Having said that, my post begins with this....

Having nothing much to do in Ipoh, I drove up north for a short vacation in Penang.... the weather was cloudy but fine, no rain and upon reaching, I went for lunch at Little Genting in Green Lane....
Hokkien mee in Penang aka Prawn noodles in Ipoh...
It was too spicy for me, don't judge the mini size chili on the spoon... 
It burns!
One coconut was definitely not enough.... 
Fast forward, it was evening... time to go for dinner ....
We went to a shop in Taman Perkaka....
All I can say is that it is a corner shop just behind Subaidah Restaurant.... 
Never thought of looking at the name of the shop...
But the food was not bad....
And we had these four dishes.... scrumptious meal which cost around RM65
plus rice and drinks.... 
 Hot Leafy spinach soup....
Sweet and sour pork....
These look and tasted special...
They are beancurd balls cooked with some curry leaves and salted eggs....
And Fish cooked in Nyonya style 
Here is a glimpse of the shop... 
Just too bad I couldn't remember to take the name of the shop...
Hope someone can enlighten me...
It is just opposite the Wong Chao Restaurant in Taman Perkaka....
             
                
Our dinner did not end right there....
We took a drive to another place....
For some bittersweet experience!

  4. I don't know the place but the beancurd balls cooked with some curry leaves and salted egg sure look tasty. I know where Wong Chao Restaurant in Taman Perkaka so the next time I go to Penang maybe I will look for this restaurant.

  6. "The corner shop just behind Subaidah" is an appropriate Penangite restaurant name hahaha. Usually it is the actual name of the place that people won't know :P

    But ar... I don't think I've been to this one before. Maybe that's why I don't know. "Zhu char" in that area (Sg Dua), usually I will go to Kim Hin, it is located beside a motorbike shack between Tesco Extra and that row of shops with Pizza Hut and McD. But we don't call it Kim Hin, we will say "Let's go to Paul's", because Paul is the guy who sell drinks there.

    Also there's a pretty nice place on the same row as Sg Nibong Public Bank. Don't know the name also, we call it "fu kua chao dan" (bitter gourd fried egg) because they do that dish very well there.

    And ah, the dim sum shop at Elit, they do dishes at night too, pretty decent too with air-cond.

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
