Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Penang

Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant is 1 of my favorite restaurant to go whenever I had the cravings for Korean food (and also BBQ stuff), simply because the quality of food here is usually higher than those normal Korean restaurant.

In Daorae, besides those normal sitting area, they usually have a dining area with tatami style, and obviously you will need to take off your shoe before entering the area. Notice the white long exhaust chute on top of each table? It can be pull down to be as close as possible to the BBQ area to suck out all the smoke from it.

Like most authentic Korean restaurant, our table is invariably laid with a sumptuous array of panchan. They are given complimentary for every table if you order their BBQ dishes. Most of them taste nice, and you can always ask for free refilling. I especially love their salad.

Seow Fong Lye Cofee Shop Chee Cheong Fun @ Penang

Chee Cheong Fun or rice noodle roll, all the while were being neglected by non-Penangtie. Well, can’t blame them since Char Koay Teow, Asam Laksa, Penang Hokkien Mee are too famous already.

2010.05.15 Seow Fong Lye Chee Cheong Fun @ Penang-1

Penang’s version of Chee Cheong Fun uses shrimp paste ( or known as hae koh ) which is black, but taste sweet. Mix it with some chili sauce and you to enjoy. The Chee Cheong Fun here at Seow Fong Lye coffee shop is especially good. The noodle roll itself is very very smooth and soft, and taste quite different (but good) from what you get to eat at other stall. 8.5/10

Yam rice is definitely 1 of the signature dish of mainland Penang, simply because there are few stalls here that sells really really good yam rice.

2010.04.28 Sri Sentosa Yam Rice @ Bukit Mertajam-1

The yam rice in Penang is quite different from others part of Malaysia as it’s almost always served with salted vegetables pork soup, hence the soup taste sourish and very appetizing! The ingredients used is mostly pork, from the innards such as blood, liver, intestine to something more normal such as pork balls, lean meat and 3 layer meat.Of course, you can always customize the ingredients by telling them what you want, and what you don’t want. 7.0/10
