HOCK LYE SEAFOOD VILLAGE

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 23 - 2008

HOCKLYE01

Whenever we thought of having seafood by the beach, we would always think of Teluk Bahang, Batu Ferringhi, Tanjung Bungah, Gurney Drive, Gertak Sanggul, Batu Maung without knowing that there is another shop right in the heart of Georgetown overseeing Penang Bridge. Hock Lye Seafood Village has been operating their present shop for almost one and a half years and many Penangites do not even know that it even existed.

My friend and I decided to drop by the place after seeing the roof sign many times as we were using the Jelutong Expressway towards Penang Bridge. The restaurant is actually hidden behind some shoplots / flats within the Gat Macallum Street area. Although the restaurant specialized in seafood dishes, we only managed to order a few mixed dishes to be taken with rice. There were also many varieties of noodles served.

The first dish that came was the Thai Style Homemade Tofu (RM8). This is a must to try as the tofu was real smooth accompanied by lots of dried shrimps, cili padi, onions and mint leaves.

HOCKLYE02

Next was some Spicy Deep Fried Squids (RM8). It came with a saucer of mayonnaise. Common but it was great!

HOCKLYE03

Golden Fragrant Chicken (RM8) followed next. Chunky pieces of chicken meat were dipped in frying flour and stir fried with lots of curry leaves and mayonnaise. It tasted crunchy and nice. I would recommend that the dish be eaten fast as it will become soggy after too long.

HOCKLYE04

The much awaited Cereal Buttered Prawns (RM20) finally came. Eight big prawns cooked perfectly to our liking and they were real generous with the amount of cereal given.

HOCKLYE05

Overall, the food were good and we paid RM50 for the dishes, 4 bowls of rice and 3 glasses of their Homecooked Lo Han Guo drinks. I was surprised to find out that they do also serve lunch from 11.30am until 2.30pm daily. Next visit, I would try out their meat crabs as I saw almost all the tables ordered that. The crab must be good.

Just remember that the restaurant is behind some shoplots within the Macallum Street Flats area by following the map I have drawn out. Do enjoy your experiences there.

113 FRIED PORRIDGE SHOP

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 22 - 2008

Note: The restaurant has shifted to the main road of Jalan Fettes Park opposite Prima Tanjung. Items sold are still the same.

11301

Most of you will exclaim “What? Porridge is porridge. How could it be fried?” Well, there is such a thing as that, although it is not the in-thing in Penang. Cooked porridge is stir fried in a wok with some herbs and spices, together with pork, prawns, cuttlefish strips, dried shrimps and Chinese leek (koochai). In fact, it looked just like dark soy sauce porridge but the taste is unique. Here is how the dish looks like.

11304

Four of us visited this shop which has relocated there from Jalan Burma (next to Ribs Restaurant). We spent barely RM31 on all the food we had ordered and RM5 for the drinks. Firstly, we tired out on of their set meals, which was the Sweet and Sour Pork set (RM4.50). You can order any one dish from their list of food in the menu and rice for only RM4.50. My recommendation would be the Curry Wild Boar set which will always be fresh as the owner hunt the boar himself.

11302

The next dish which I would always order when I am there would be the Moonlight Hor Fun. A fresh raw egg would be added onto the hot steaming Hor Fun. Upon served, you have to mix the egg thoroughly. This dish may look raw to some but once you have a taste of the dish, you would not regret ordering it during your next visit.

11303

Next on the list was the Oyster Omelette (RM6). Most shops would add starch to their Fried Oyster and scramble it. This shop will just use big juicy oysters and fried them together with fresh eggs. This dish is yummy!!

11305

Another dish which you should try is the Black Four Seasons Beans (RM7). Young long beans are deep fried and then stir fried with dried shrimps in dark soy sauce. Real yummy when taken with hot steaming rice.

11306

Lastly, another dish which you should not miss out will be their house speciality – the Yunnan Tofu (RM6). Fresh soft tofu is mashed and mixed with eggs, dried shrimps and chopped wood fungus and then steamed again. The cooked steamed tofu will then be dip into tapioca flour and deep fried to perfection.

11307

Do watch out for their latest lunch offer – One bowl of rice + one dish of your choice + one bowl of soup = RM4.50

The road to Batu Maung is not as confusing as before after the Government had built an expressway (Jelutong Expressway) straight into the town. To get to the shop, just drive towards Batu Maung from the Jelutong Expressway. As you reach the last traffic lights in Batu Maung, turn right. You will see World Fish Centre on your right. When you reach the traffic light, turn left and you will see a stretch of shophouses. The shop is just a few shops away within Seong Iping Café premises.

ANYTHING AND WHATEVER

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 22 - 2008

AW02

There is something new in the market that will take over the beverage industry by storm in no time. ANYTHING and WHATEVER was launched on 3 June 2008 at Armada Hotel, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. The idea and creative came from Out Of The Box Pte. Ltd. from Singapore and the beverages are being distributed by Tongee (KL) Sdn. Bhd. in Malaysia.

AW01

What makes these products so unique is that you will never know what drink you will be having until you open up the can and test it out. There won’t be any more problems in deciding what beverage to have again next time. That’s the thrill of getting surprises and I’m sure lots of people would like to try them out.

ANYTHING which is carbonated has six flavors such as Cola, Cola with Lemon, Apple, Fizz Up, Cloudy Lemon and Root Beer.

ANYTHING

On the other hand, WHATEVER which is non-carbonated has also six flavors such as Ice Lemon Tea, Peach Tea, Jasmine Green Tea, White Grape Tea, Apple Tea and Chrysanthemum Tea.

WHATEVER

I immediately got hold of half a dozen of each when I was at 7-Eleven recently. I just love surprises. It’s selling at RM1.80 per can. So far I had the Apple, Root Beer, Jasmine Green Tea and Peach Tea and the tastes met up with my expectations. They were great! What an ideal beverage for parties, picnics, BBQ, etc! I am sure your guest will love all the surprises you are giving them. Presently, you will see the ANYTHING and WHATEVER posters at all the 7-Eleven outlets all across Peninsular Malaysia. You can even get them in Jusco. Within the next few months, I am certain that most cafés, bistros, kopitiams, mamaks and convenient shops will have them available for the public.

AW03

I saw their TVCs and was laughing all the way. Here are the two TV Commercials directed by the acclaimed Mr. Thononchai Sornsriwichai who was a highly awarded director in the world in 2006.

PASTA & PIE @ NORTHAM BEACH CAFE

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 19 - 2008

PASTAPIE01

“Hey Jon! Where’s my lasagna?” Hmm… Where have I heard this before? Yea… it’s me! Haha. I felt like I have a part of Garfield hidden inside me as I am always craving for lasagna. After searching in many Italian restaurants for lasagna that’s good and affordable, I ended up in Pasta & Pie at Northern Beach Café again and again. Why? It is because the dish can be ordered as ala carte or in a set which will cost you not more than RM16.90. I ordered the set as I can get an appetizer, a main and a dessert at a much lesser price.

You have a few choices to choose from and I chose the Mushroom Carrot Soup. The soup is thick and creamy and it comes with a breadstick. This is how I always love my soup to be. Yummy!

PASTAPIE03

“Thou shalt not touch my lasagna!” Right! You got it! The lasagna is my favorite but the portion is too small to be shared with anyone else. The smell from the melted cheese and the smoothness of the meat and lasagna pasta has always sent me craving for more. It’s a must to try.

PASTAPIE02

As for dessert, I chose the Pumpkin Cheese Pie as it was not too filling compared to the many varieties of chocolate cakes and apple pies the stall has. The top of the slice of Pumpkin Cheese Pie was baked with crunchy almonds slices and accompanied with yummy custard sauce.

PASTAPIE04

There are many other pies which I have tasted before such as the Chicken Pot Pie, Shepherd’s Pie, Mushroom Chicken Pie and many other sweet pies that are really good as well. In fact, you can even custom ordered your birthday cakes, wedding cakes, dessert & sweet for your tea party by contacting Tony days before your function.

To get there is real easy. Just drive along Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah where the Northam Hotel is and turn left into the Northam Beach Café. The stall is strategically located within the dining area.

AGOGO WAN THAN MEE

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 18 - 2008

AGOGO01

Penang produces so many different versions of delicious Wan Than Mee (sometimes called wonton noodle) that most of the time we get confused with what style of the noodles to consume. We have the Cantonese, Hokkien, Hakka, Teochew even Hong Kong styles of Wan Than Mee, not forgetting that the different style of how other states prepare the dish such as the versions from Johor, Pahang, Perak, Sarawak and Selangor. The dish comes in two versions, the dry and the soup. We also have the boiled wonton and the deep fried wonton, fine noodles and thick noodles, served with sambal and/or pickled green chillies.

One of the regular Wan Than Mee stall that I frequent is right in the heart of Georgetown. Somehow I like the taste of it compared to a few famous ones in Penang. I gave the stall the name Agogo as the boss will always shake vigorously when he shook the noodles dry. The noodles come in three sizes, small (RM2.40), medium (RM2.90) and large (RM3.40). If you want to try out the noodle, be prepare to wait for awhile as the customers will come in nonstop. After all, there are selling only for 5 hours or less per day, except for Sunday.

AGOGO02

AGOGO03

You have to drive towards Lebuh Pantai to get into Lebuh Melayu as it is a one-way street. You can see the stall on you right at the junction of Lorong Toh Aka. Ample parking spaces can be found on the left road ( Lorong Ikan). If you find that the stall has no more places to sit, you can always move to the coffee shop opposite, which is cooler.

ADAMCURRYPUFF01

Are you tired of eating curry puff with only spicy potato as the filling? You should try out Adam’s Famous Chicken Curry Puff in Pulau Tikus, Penang. In fact, this stall served the best curry puff in Penang. If you timing is good, you will get pipping hot curry puff straight from the stove. Not only is the curry puff steaming hot, it also has chunks of chicken meat in it. On top of that, it’s only RM1.40 each (will increase to RM1.50 at an unconfirmed date) and big enough to keep your tummy filled.

Other than the curry puff, you can also try out the Nasi Lemak (Steamed Coconut Milk Rice) with spicy anchovy and a slice of egg. As for orders for parties, Adam does not provide anything smaller than that size of Curry Puff. Can you imagine that most of the time these are sold off within minute? On an average day, Adam would have to prepare safely about 800pcs of Curry puff to be sold off at both his stalls.

Just turn into Pulau Tikus Market at Jalan Pasar and you will see the stall at the junction of Jalan Moulmein. The stall is in front of Sin Hup Aun Café where as the Green Lane stall will sell in front of Kedai Kopi Genting.

CHEE CHEONG FUN @ KEDAI KOPI GENTING

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 15 - 2008

GENTINGCCF01

Steamed Rice Roll or commonly known in Penang as Chee Cheong Fun was originated from southern China and Hong Kong with many variety of filling. In Malaysian and Singapore, many people prefer taking this delicacy with a kind of reddish black sweet sauce, shrimp paste and specially prepared chili paste. Chee Cheong Fun is a popular breakfast food in Singapore and Malaysia but nowadays people tend to consume it practically any time of the day. 

I have tried many stalls selling Chee Cheong Fun in Penang. Some of them were using shrimp pastes that have overwhelming smell of fermented shrimp and tasted kind of salty. The best Chee Cheong Fun that I have tasted so far that really met up to my expectation is the one selling in Kedai Kopi Genting in Green Lane area, Penang. The combination of sauces was perfect and the chili paste was marvelous. Not many stalls in Penang served the chili paste cooked with dried shrimp as they do. The price for two rolls of Chee Cheong Fun only cost RM1.70 whereas for three rolls, it costs only RM2.50. No wonder, there were many Singaporeans who had bought tens of packets from the stall regularly.

If you are coming from Jalan Mesjid Negeri towards the Penang Bridge, do watch out for Jalan Delima on your right at the traffic light. Turn into the road and turn to the first road on your left (Lorong Delima 6). That’s where the Kedai Kopi Genting is.

HOME RECIPE FOOD CORNER

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 14 - 2008

HOMERECIPE01

I was at Prangin Mall few days back and had lunch with one of my friends during his lunch break. We decided to drop by Home Recipe Food Corner since the set meals there looked reasonable with a net price of not more RM14. Set meals meant to be fast right? But that wasn’t the treatment we had received. With the limited one hour of lunch time, we had to forgo the desserts and yet paid for the same amount. I will tell you the reasons at the end of the post.

The set meals came with free drinks, one Iced Lemon Tea and one Lime Juice. Both tasted extremely sweet. It’s bad for those healthy conscious people.

HOMERECIPE02

Next came the soup of the day – Mushroom Soup. The soups were diluted but yet edible. I doubt that it is made from some secret home recipes.

HOMERECIPE03

Here were the main courses we had – Cheese Satay Chicken Chop (RM13.90 set) and Sour Plum Chicken Chop (RM12.90 set). The Cheese Satay Chicken Chop presentation was real impressive with baked cheese on top but the taste was just normal. Nothing special and the chicken chop size was rather small. The Sour Plum Chicken Chop on the other hand was also the same, nothing special. I guessed the chef did not marinate the meat before hand.

HOMERECIPE04

HOMERECIPE05

As for the desserts, we had some problems with that. It was to be fresh cut fruits and a scoop of ice cream. We waited almost 25 minutes after the main course but we were not served at all. I was rather irritated by their service. 3 staff and a chef but no one served us. Not that the place is extremely big not to notice us. One staff was busy checking out the latest fashion trend opposite the shop. One was busy chatting with the other and the chef did not even push them to check on the completion the customer’s set meals.

My advice to the boss, do not get school boys and girls to handle your business if they are not serious at all. You may lose your business. After all, they only realized about their faults after we had decided to pay and leave for work. So what would you choose? Take the delayed serving of desserts or get a black record in your company for coming back late? As for my recommendation on this place, I won’t advice at all unless you are extremely hungry to consume the whole set courses and with ample time in hand.

LA FRANCE

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 12 - 2008

Note: This little French stall has now relocated to a big mansion at 3B Jalan Irrawaddi, Penang effective September 2011. Business Hours: 12pm-10.30pm (Closed Tuesday)

LAFRANCE01

Bienvenue à la La France! Est-ce que je peux vous aider? Que voudriez-vous avoir hui?Oops! I have forgotten that I am not in France but I am surely having French food over here now. Haha! By the way, those words meant “Welcome to La France! How can I help you? What would you like to have today?” Why was I mumbling in French when I am right here in Penang, Malaysia? Well, here’s the answer. Please read on.

Have you been to the Northam Beach Café for the past 6 months? You would have noticed that there is a stall selling French food by a young couple. The hubby is a Frenchman whereas the wife is our local Chinese who can speak real fluent Hokkien. One look at the menu and you might be wondering why they are serving omelettes, crepes and Ciabatta or white breads during dinner time. As for the locals, those are for breakfast. For the French, those dishes are homemade food that you can get practically anytime of the day.

How was the food then? I would say I was very impressed with the quality of food served. Although it was not fine dining, it was one of the best French food that I had taken locally in years. The breads were of good quality, so were the crepes which were freshly made on spot. As for price, it was a good bargain for the quality food served. We managed to try out the Marine Provencal (RM9.80) which consists of a long Ciabatta Bread filled with large chunks of tuna fish mixed with Mozarella Cheese and sprinkles with herbs. It came accompanied with coleslaw and Pomme Frite (French Fries). It was marvelous!

LAFRANCE02

As for dessert, we ordered the Crepe Peanut Banana (RM4.80). It has thin soft crepe filled with banana precooked with grounded cinnamon and herbs. The crepe came in pairs with garnishes such as chocolate, grounded peanuts and icing sugar. Well, the French are the experts in decorating their food. This dish is a must try for those sweet tooth people out there. Do you know what is so great about this place? It’s MSG free for a healthier diet and most importantly, it’s tax free!

LAFRANCE03

If you have the opportunity to be there, do also try out their Omelette Fromage, Omelette Jambon-Fromage, Omelette Forestiere and Omelette Primeurs. To get there is real easy. Just drive along Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah where the Northam Hotel is and turn left into the Northam Beach Café. The stall is strategically located within the dining area.

YAW’S ROAST AND GRILL

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 9 - 2008

YAWS01

Have you heard of Yaw’s Roast & Grill before? Maybe this name is rather new to you but this western food corner used to be from one of the famous western food restaurants along Jalan Burmah in Penang many years ago. It was formerly called Top Top Snack Bar & Restaurant. The western food corner has been operating there for many years in a residential house. The taste for the food served has not change but the menu surely increased a lot.

If you love to have some quiet moments in a nice and cozy place, spending some romantic moments as well in a dim lighted corner, do check out this place. The best is that you do not need to pay extra for whatever taxes that you normally pay in any other restaurants.

YAWS02

Since I was around that area, I decided to patronize this place with a friend. We ordered the Soup of the Day @ Onion Soup (RM6.50) as appetizer, Black Pepper Chicken Chop (RM7.50) and a Chicken Minced (RM8.80). All together plus drinks, we paid only RM25.80 which is reasonable for such quality food.

Garlic toasts were given complimentary from the kitchen, slightly toasted to perfection with yummy garlic butter and herbs.

YAWS03

The Onion Soup was also perfect, creamy yet did not have the over-powering taste of onions at all. It came garnished with some crouton (small pieces of deep fried cubed bread) and celery.

YAWS04

The Black Pepper Chicken Chop was also great. It has crunchy deep fried chicken topped with thick not-so-hot black pepper gravy, suitable for kids too. In fact, I did ask for an extra bowl of the gravy without additional cost incurred.

YAWS05

If you are a potato lover, you would love this dish – the Chicken Minced. It is actually a ring of buttered mashed potatoes, slightly baked and garnish with the chef’s special creamy chicken cube gravy. This is a must to try out. Do not underestimate the look of the portion served. It is really very filling.

YAWS06

To get to the place might be quite confusing as it is hidden from the main access road with no signage at all. If you are coming from town towards 1-Stop Midlands Centre, you will see Convent Pulau Tikus on your right. Turn into the road (Lebuhraya Maktab) immediately after that. Drive forward and turn into the second road (Jalan Midlands) on your left. As you reach the first junction (Gerbang Midlands) on your left, find a parking space nearby. The place is just at the corner house.
