The design of the cup is very special, and it’s quite heavy too for a cup.

Nandu Rasam @ RM7.90 is certainly an interesting dish. The soup was boiled with the crab together, giving it a very interesting flavor. Besides, although the pepper taste might be a bit overwhelming, but it still taste very nice as the spices used to cook the soup is just wonderful. The crab is very fresh too (although small) but you can enjoy it while waiting for your main dish to come. 7.9/10

Restaurant Kapitan @ Penang

There’s a huge red sign board at Lebuh Chulia, showing this particular shop, Restaurant Kapitan, which is also the place that sell Badam Milk. Since whenever I pass by this shop during night time, I always saw loads of head there, I know surely it’s something good and decided to give them a try 1 fine day.

And yes, the food served here is good!

Their Biryani Chicken rice come with a small claypot, which is kinda unique. The rice is nice but not as nice as you able to eat it itself. I will prefer to have some curry to go with it. However, the chicken is good stuff, very tender and fragrant! 7.3/10
