Restaurant Sai Gao @ Sungai Petani

Restaurant Sai Gao had been doing business in Sungai Petani for years, at least more than 2 decade. In the past, when Sungai Petani is still a small town, and still don’t have shopping mall or air condition restaurant, this is the single most famous restaurant here. Almost all of the business man in Sungai Petani will bring their customer or supplier to have lunch here, mainly because the food here is GOOD, and is also one of the few places that serve “dai chao” during lunch.

Besides, although you can see many empty table, it’s because I reach there early. If you reach around 12pm or later, it will always be full house.

Although the inside is quite old, but they do re-paint it from time to time, to make it looks newer. I had been patronizing this place ever since I was very small,  around the age of 3 to 4, and their interior never change besides the paint, same goes to their dish, still as good as the past.

Restaurant Toipark Village @ Penang

Yay for another Taiwanese food here in Penang. I actually get to know this restaurant from PenangTuaPui, and again, the food they recommend doesn’t disappoints me!

We reach there around 8.00pm, and am quite surprise that there ain’t any customer inside. The design of the shop is very simple and pinkish. Besides, it’s run by Taiwanese as the lady boss ascent show it all. So hopefully I will get to taste some authentic Taiwanese food here.

Dataran Ikan Bakar @ Sungai Petani

Dataran Ikan Bakar, located by Sungai Petani (yes, Sungai Petani is the name of a river), serve some nice Malay ikan bakar. Well, usually if a restaurant is located by the river or sea, definitely the view and environment will be nice right? No, this is not the case here, as anyone who saw Sungai Petani before will understand it.

The place they “bakar” the fish is quite small, but they usually cook it earlier, which lead to most of the time the food is already cold when served.

One Corner Cafe Super Hokkien Mee @ Penang

Well, although Penang is famous for it’s Hokkien Mee, or better known as prawn mee, I always can’t seem to find really great Hokkien Mee at Penang. Most of the one that I tried is just above average (although still way better than those at KL one). I can’t even think of a place to bring my friends from KL to treat them a good Hokkien Mee when asked, until recently, my mum introduce this….

Super Hokkien Mee, or “wan lai fuk hokkien mee”
