First Famous Restaurant Duck Rice @ Penang

First famous restaurant? No.1 famous restaurant? Most famous restaurant? Whatever your name can be, but if your food is bad, also useless, but, this is a feast! I love it the way they put all the things I order into 1 plate, roasted pork, roasted duck, steamed chicken, Chinese sausage, all arrange nicely, simply just nice!

Bi Ah Dong (Mabrown) Restaurant @ Sungai Petani

Bi Ah Dong? Mabrown? I always find that this restaurant name is very funny. In Chinese the restaurant was read as “We Ye Tong”, or “Bi Ah Dong” in Hokkien, but in English it was known as Mabrown, and which I always read as “Mabolo” when I was still small, err….what? Well, in any case, this restaurant had started their business for a long time already, as long as Restaurant Sai Gao, and if not mistaken, they are 1 of the 1st restaurant in Sungai Petani that provide air-corn room for their customers.

However, in terms of customers, Sai Gao always had the upper hand. I had also notice most of the time Sai Gao is the first choice of most customers, and only if they can’t find a place there then they will only opt for Restaurant Bi Ah Dong. Besides, whenever Sai Gao is off, the business here will be tremendously good.

However, I still love both restaurant, and I find that both of them got their specialties that make me always come back to them.

They had a few ready cooked dishes, such as those you found in economy rice stall, and the beancurd below is 1 of them. Although it’s cold already (duh obviously) but it still taste nice. Even though the skin is not crispy, but the gravy is good. I take it as an appetizer before my meal. 7.5/10

The eggplant is another ready made dish. However, I find that it’s so-so only as it’s a bit tasteless. But still, ok la. 6.2/10

Wong Fee Kee Roasted Pork @ Ipoh

During the 5th day of Chinese New Year, I went down to Ipoh, and I never expect such many people are there! I reach Ipoh at around 10.30am, and decided to have my breakfast, only to found out that 3 of the usual place I had my breakfast in Ipoh – Yee Fat, Lou Wong/Ong Kee and another coffee shop near UOB bank there is full with loads of people are standing waiting for empty table!

This is madness! At 10.30am, most people usually already finish their breakfast, and still too early for lunch, but why is this happening!

Finally, I decided to try to the Pig’s Offals Porridge that Motormouth recommend, only to find out they haven’t start business yet!! End up I had to patron Ngan Woh again. Sigh, it’s really a bad day for me as before this, I already made a huge detour. I actually wanted to go to Jalan Lapangan Terbang, so I use the Pantai Hospital exit. In the end, as I made the wrong turn, I end up in Tanjung Rambutan and Bercham……… sigh oh sigh…..

Anyway, after steamed fish…….

Sky Hotel Char Siew @ Penang

Sky hotel, such a nice name, but don’t be fooled by its name. Sky hotel is just a budget of the budget hotel, which is also some place I will never stay in it. No offense to those backpackers out there, but I will rather not to travel if you want me to stay in this type of place.

However, I am still here at Sky hotel located at Chulia street, just because of the famous Char Siew rice here.

When I ordered the Char Siew, I was asked, fat or lean, and I regretted very much by ordering the lean version. The Char Siew is good, but it’s too lean leading to not juicy enough. 7.0/10

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.
