Nasi Beratur Smile Nov 06, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indian | Restaurant | Mixed rice

It's well known that Penang has very good Nasi Kandar
Nasi Kandar is just another masterpiece of Mamak of this cultural town
The best of the best Nasi Kandar in Penang is definitely "Nasi Beratur"
It is not hard to find it is just located beside the famous Kapitan Keling Mosque
lets check some photo of it

 

 

 
"Beratur" means queue up, and this is what really happens every night here from 9 something

 
You don't judge it by this messy look, their "Kuah Campur" is the best I have ever tasted, fragrance, aromatic, not too spicy

To me the "centerpiece" of a plate of awesome Nasi Kandar is the "Kuah Campur" or translated as "mixed sauces". This Beratur is simply just good at cooking delicious curry and sauce.

Just tell the guy "Kuah Campur", and with any dishes regardless, it will be a memorable taste of Penang

Beside fried chicken, there are also a range of other Mamak dishes like Mutton, Beef, Squid, Prawn etc etc. It's recommended to try fried chicken it is crispy and aromatic. And squid is not recommended, as it is too hard and the taste of the cooking isn't that nice, it cost RM6- RM10 per piece.

Jia Sai mee goreng Smile Nov 06, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Indian | Restaurant

I was told by my roommate that there is a restaurant name Jiao Sai ( Bird Shit in Hokkien) in George town. Omg! I was so shocked as I have never heard this funny name along the years I have been studying in Penang Island.

I told my pal about it and she was as excited as me. So we went there last week to experience "Jiao Sai". Thanks to foursquare, it showed the exact location and also what must be tried there. The dish that is highly recommended is Tomyam Fried Mee (Mee Goreng Tomyam).

The picture below shows the signboard of the shop. You can see the wording 鸟粪, Jiao Sai, and also there are the bird shits stick on the signboard. I believe that it may be disgusting to some, but to me, it's so funny.

Well, we reached about 9pm, and there were just a couple of customers. I believe crowd starts after 10pm, as we could see more people coming when we were about to finish our dinner at around 10 pm. Usually there are few waiters standing outside. They are so friendly and keep asking us to take the photo. We do ask why is the shop named so, but too bad non of them can answer.

We ordered the famous Tomyam Fried Noodle. Since, it was not crowded, our dish was served within 10minutes.

Well, the noodle is a little different, because they use the Tomyam Instant Noodle from Thailand where the noodle is thinner and more chewy. Yeah. it is delicious for sure, as the noodle itself has a fragrant aroma of Tomyam, the specialty of Thailand instant noodle. The Tomyam Fried Mee is quite spicy. So for people who do not like spicy food can probably ask for less spicy when you place the order. It is served with sliced chicken meat and a half boiled fried egg. The chicken meat was too hard to chew and I felt that it was overcooked.

The shop also serve other different types of fried noodle, and roti canai. So, there are quite variety of food to choose for. Overall I give the noodle 6/10. As I felt that it was just a simple food, and I think it is prepared by the MSG of the Tomyam Instant Noodle too. Just pay a visit for the specialty of the shop name.

I have been there for few times, I felt it was just a normal coffee shop. While, I visited again yesterday with my boyfriend. And that was the very first time I felt that their toast and coffee were so nice. Seriously delicious. It is absolutely worthwhile to try. And this is a favorite cafe to many of my friends too.

 

 
1.The Toast, it is baked in a traditional way - with charcoal. The taste of charcoal baked toast is totally
different from the one from oven, it is crunchier and smell greater. In addition, the combination of aromatic Kaya and Butter is always the best match to "Roti Bakar".

 
ii) Cup of Coffee - It was too sweet for me. While it was just fine when I dunked in the toast and the " "sweetness" was just perfectly diluted.

Another dish.

 
Normally they put few packs of Nasi Lemak on the table. You can take it yourself when you would like one.
The Nasi Lemak looks spicy where you can see all the Chili when first unwrap it. But, it is not too spicy. The Ikan Bilis are too salty for me, but the chili is quite nice. And I like the strong Pandan aroma on the rice.

The first time I was here the service of the staffs were very rude. They were not friendly at all. I told myself I would not pay a visit again, who knew I came again.

However, after trying for a few times (well, was forced to, as my friends urged me to bring them there), I felt the attitude of the staffs becoming better. Maybe because of the service change and I felt the dishes are getting nicer as well.

The cafe is always crowded and most of the time we need to stand beside and wait for a vacant table.

quite hard to find parking here, if you’re driving, try to turn into Lorong Kampung Malabar (next to Campbell Street). It is easier to find parking over here and you just need to walk for less than 100m.

best tomyam in pg Smile Nov 04, 2013

Once we talk about Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang, the first thought that comes into mind is definitely FOOD. There are lots of nice foods in Raja Uda, the most famous now should be TOMYAM noodle.

 
This is the famous Tomyam in Raja Uda. It is awesome. I bet you can’t resist the mixture of sour yet spicy of the soup, and also the freshness seafood.

In penang, most of the stall selling Tomyam allow us to choose the ingredients we want. It is ranging from vegetables, fish cakes, fish balls, big prawn and so forth. The one you shouldn't missed out to pick is the fried fish and the abalone pieces.

There are different type of noodle too, most people prefer maggi mee. Yup, and some will like the TOMYAM PORRIDGE. Tomyam porridge is quite special to people who never heard before. And well it is very nice too.

 
* for people who dislike spicy food is recommended to take tomyam porridge. As the porridge has lighten the spiciness of tomyam. *

 
Recommended Dish(es):  abalone pieces,fried fish
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM7(宵夜)

Claypot  OK Nov 04, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian variety | Western variety | Food court | Noodles | Ice Cream / Froyo / Gelato

 

 
Well, this is definitely a good choice after a long exhausting day. However, claypot rice is typed like "hot gas" food, thus it is tempting but it is always be eliminated from my dining list.

The claypot here is quite on average on the texture, and the flavor. It is not much different as compare to claypot rice in other stall where the smoothly chicken and the juicy soysauce is the most attractive part of claypot rice. For friends who find for local signature claypot, there is another claypot rice in the kopitiam just located opposite to Sg Dua Tesco. While, the reason for choosing here is to enjoy a better and more comfortable dining environment.

Normally after a long exhausting day, we wish to have a good dining place especially a place where we can avoid from the tense cooking smell. We will normally back home with smelly clothes and body when we dine in hawker stalls. Yet, the claypot rice here is not too bad too, though not much special. Air-con, easier car parking, do sometimes adding value to the normal claypot rice.

Thus, this is a good dinner choice for students from USM and also office workers, who wish to find a place equip with air con, ample of car parking space and yet reasonable price.:mamad
