I Love Yoo

Looking for something simple so, I went to Subway. Wah… the queue was very long, so I gave up and walked to the middle stalls located at the lower ground floor of The Gardens. Surprisingly, there was no queue for I Love Yoo on this particular day. Then, I found a corner place to sit down and waited for a while before the porridge is served.

You can have a choice of peanut porridge or dried scallop porridge. I think by default they will give you dried scallop porridge. Just tell the person-in-charged that you want to have different favour when you place your order.

Okay, this is how the porridge looks like. The smooth and thick porridge topped with  spring onions, some light soya sauce and sesame oil. If you want, you can put some white pepper. Do mixed it well and dip the yau char kwai (a Chinese long and crispy donut) into the porridge before you start eating it.

Sorry, I took the picture when it was about to finish.

Ikea Restaurant & Cafe

Beef Meatball (15 pcs)
This is one of the must try food in this restaurant. It serves with cream sauce, fries and Ligonberry jam. It sounds weird for me to dip the meatball with jam but actually it blends well with the sauce. It costs RM15.00 for 15 pieces.

Chicken Breast with Pasta
Simple creamy penne pasta with marinated chicken breast. It costs RM12.90.

Baked Salmon with potatoes & vegetables
I think this salmon is also another must try food in this restaurant because when I searched online, a lot of bloggers mentioned it. It costs RM14.90.

Chicken Wings
Well marinated chicken wings. After finished one, still feel like having the second one 🙂 It costs RM3.90 for two pieces.

Swedish Daim Cake
This is one of the must try food in this restaurant. Can see a lot of people picking up this cake. So, I think I do not need to explain much. 🙂 It costs RM5.20 per piece.

Bee Hooi Kopitiam

After seeing my colleague posted up an entry about the Penang Food in Singapore, I decided to write my second food reviews about Penang Food in Malaysia. During my stay in Penang, I came across this little kopitiam called Bee Hooi Kopitiam at Jalan Burma, Pulau Tikus and stopped by to have my dinner there. I guess this kopitiam is the nearest shop to my hotel.

Kway Teow Th’ng costs RM3.50 for a small bowl. It consists of two fish balls, few sliced of pork meat, chicken meat and fishcakes, and some fried garlic on top of the kway teow. The fried garlic goes well with the plain yet tasty soup. Slurp!

Fried Kway Teow costs RM5.00 for small portion. It gives two middle sized prawn and few sliced of Chinese sausages. The taste is still acceptable, just a bit spicy for me, and the “wok hei” is good enough. Do you know why? Just get to know that it uses charcoal instead of normal gas to fry this noodle. Still worth I think!? Although, the portion is quite small and expensive, frying kway teow with charcoal is all about the skills and the hearts to prepare the food for you.
Beehooi Kopitiam

Hmm… I am pretty proud that this two food can “earn” so well abroad. So, next time if you visit Penang, eat as much as you can. It is still cheaper to eat here if I were to compare with Gurney Drive.

Is the uncle still selling?

Nyonya Colors

Nyonya Color
I wanted to eat the Yong Tau Foo at the lower ground of The Gardens Mall but it is always packed with people during the lunch time. So, I opted for next option, the Nyonya Colors, which is located few steps away from the Yong Tau Foo stall.

While queueing for my turn to place order, I kept looking at their menu. I am a bit curious to know what Yellow Laksa (Thai) is.  Its name sounds special, so without any hesitation, I ordered this noodle.

It consists of thick curry laksa with vermicelli, some chicken and few white radish. I felt it is a bit odd to have white radish inside a curry noodle. The overall taste is good but it is a bit oily and the rest is just normal.

Purple Cane Tea House

Besides just having a cuppa of tea, you can try their food too. There are few dishes that I quite like it during my previous visits.

Nasi Lemak with curry chicken
The rice is cooked with tea leaves and the curry always tastes nice especially the potatoes.

Another good try is the mushroom chicken noodle or you can order rice as well. It uses the flat yellow mee. The noodle looks oily to me after mixed with the black-mushroom sauce.

It seems like the rice set is better presentation that the noodle one.

I tried the vegetarian goose noodle and it is one of my favourite vegetarian food but it is very oily because of the fried vegetarian goose. However, this crispy vegetarian goose goes well with the dried flat yellow noodle.

Black Tea Chicken Rice
Same as the Nasi Lemak set, the rice is cooked with tea leaves. The chicken breast is quite generous. Hope it is still the same now.

Lemon Chicken Rice

All the above sets come with a glass of cold drink or hot tea of your choice.
