Every time I go back to Penang, the Lor Mee next the Goddess of Mercy Temple will be a definite visit. The kopitiam only sells lor mee and it would always be very crowded. It is a family-run business where about 3 teenage daughters run the business.

The lor is very thick, in fact, thicker than the rest. There would be very little ingredients and the downside is they always forget my Bak Poi (Pig Skin). I like the organs such as the stomach. The hard-boiled egg would be half an egg. You can see a lot of egg used in making the thick soup. I also like the bean sprouts inside.

 
There would also be warm nutmeg drink to clear off the warmth from the heat.

Purrffect Cat Cafe Smile Feb 09, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Sweets/Snack

Me and my BFF went from one coffee cafe/bistro to another at 3 pm in the afternoon around the whole Georgetown but most seemed to be closed on the third day of CNY. So in the end we decided to try Muntri Lane. We were supposed to go to Muntri cafe but since our car was cruising along this road, my sharp foodie eyes spotted a creative name called "Purrffect...." so I decided to check it out. The downstairs turned out to be a shop selling every item about cats!

The best part is when we found out that there is a cat cafe hidden upstairs for real! The sweet and friendly Indian cashier told us all we needed to do was spend at least RM 18 per person in order to play with the cats at the samee time. Although I was not a fan of cats, in fact, I hated them, my BFF said why don't we give it a try. So we did!

We ended up spending 2 hours there engrossed with playing with the 7 persian and foreign bred cats in the middle of our food.

They only serve simple cakes and also coffee and tea. We ordered a Fruit Tea for RM 15.90 which was so tasty and fragrant and served in a cute little cat shaped teapot.

The almond cake which cost RM 12.90 was very worth it because it came in two pieces. At first I was hesitant to order it because the portion was too small and I thought it would be just served in a piece. The cake was so full of almonds and very rich and thin.

The Mushroom Quiche (RM 12.90) was quite delicious and they actually made it really hot and tasty.

Playing with the cats was a great past time. And the best part is no worries about bathing them!

Every time I come here, mee udang is one of the must-haves besides the Chicken Pot Pie. But the bad news is that since today is the third day of CNY 2014, the Chicken Pot Pie stall was not open so I was forced to order other food.

The Mee Udang Teluk Kumbar was not bad and we both finished every drop of it. There was a mix of spiciness and soury taste. Very tasty. I guess this cost about RM 6 more or less.

We also ordered the BBQ Chicken sticks with BBQ Sauce, Mango Sauce and Hot and Spicy sauce. I felt there was no distinction between the sauces though and the sauce was too sweet and the meet too hard. Those 9 sticks cost almost RM 12.

The Cuttlefish Kangkung was amazing. The sauce was very thick and tasty. There was also some jellyfish included.

Today there were a group of singers singing old CNY songs and also some Malay songs making the atmosphere more lively. The best part here is eating and enjoying the scenery of the sea in front, especially since we had a strategic spot in front of the sea and had the breeze gently blowing my hair away.

7 Village Noodle Koay Teow Ting OK Feb 09, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

My friend said this place is very famous for Koay Teow Ting. In fact, we came twice. The first time, we reached at about 6 pm but it was closed and we found out it is open from 7.30 am till 5 pm only. So the next morning, on the way home from Penang to KL, we stopped up to fulfill my friend's craving. The cafe was teeming with people that we had to share tables and wait for a seat. In the end, we got two seats.

When I saw the person opposite me eating the Signature Koay Teow Ting, I was shocked as it contained a bunch of pork lard and a few fishballs. I did not like minced pork so I quickly ordered the Kwan Jiang (two rolls) which was quite oily and the filling was quite sticky.

I also ordered a plate of Vegetables which was just ok.

The Barley Drink was just ok.

I did not like the half boiled egg which turned out hard! I am very picky when it comes to half boiled egg!

Every time any visitor or guest comes, we definitely bring them to Shanghai Ding as the dim sum is the best, especially the Xiao Long Pao.

I ordered the Scallop (Special Xiao Long Pao, RM 12.80) that were served in small aluminium cups. The soup was amazingly sweet.

We also ordered the Meat and also Crabmeat Xiao Long Paos (4 pieces each) which cost RM 8.80 for each. Each was very sweet and juicy.

This time round I ordered the Pockey Mouse Pao which had lotus cheesy filling. It was quite cute to take pics with.

I also ordered the Chee Cheong Fan but it was not that great and a bit too much flour and lacked filling.

The Fish Lamian is handmade was tasty as we like it. Smooth and clear. Nice for a heaty body.

The Prawn Dumplings were as tasty as I remember every time I frequent here whenever I am back in Penang.
