Texas Chicken In 1st Avenue Mall, Penang

TEXAS CHICKEN HAS COME TO PENANG...  When we were at 1st Avenue Mall, we saw a queue, most of the tables inside and outside the outlet was full.  I am not really a fan of Fried Chicken but out of curiosity, we joined in the queue.  One of us queued up to order while I went to look for a place to sit.
Service was quite fast even though there was a queue... 
Our combo set of 2 pieces of chicken that comes with a honey butter biscuit..
Freshly baked Honey Butter Biscuit....
Too butter-rich for me... LOL...
This fried chicken reminded me of the old KFC days where the chicken were very well marinated
and not so bland as the present ones.... 
Overall review?  Yes, I like them!
Perhaps they should consider opening a branch in IPOH? 
The set also came with a small tub of coleslaw and a soft drink which is refillable.... 
And of course, there must be a dessert to make the meal complete... 
By the way, this combo set is shared by the two of us...
I really could not finish all by myself..
I need to save some space for more Penang food!

  1. Heard of this franchise. Really that nice??

    Yup, KFC chickens used to be so well-seasoned back then. Really fingers licking good. Haha. Now, I hardly go there anymore.

  2. I find the chicken very moist but lacking in flavor. But have not eaten this one and KFC for a long time.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
