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.

    1. Yes, KFC were very nice those days... bones were also not spared at some parts!

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

    1. Me too.. I have not eaten KFC for a long time, the last time I tasted, it was quite bland... this one at least has some taste inside the flesh..

  3. Oh, I hope they'll consider opening a branch here in Ipoh!

    1. Yes, and when my cholesterol level is low, can eat a piece or two.. hahahaa

  4. The honey butter biscuit looks like fried smashed potato! Lol!

  5. We have a KFC and do eat there. but I have not heard of Texas Chicken. Of course we don't live anywhere near Texas. It looks good though. Maybe better than KFC?

    1. Yeah, I didn't see any in Sacramento too.. maybe I have missed seeing it..

  6. Can't say I'm into such franchise places nor fried chicken.

    1. You have Sugar Bun over there.. Ipoh only KFC!

  7. The spicy Texas chicken tastes better than the original ones. which one did you order - spicy or original?

  8. I like fried chicken but long time didn't eat

  9. I prefer Texas Chicken and said bye bye to KFC.
    I love their Honey Butter Bisquit and could eat 3 at one go!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
