Lao Fang Zi @ Penang

Lao Fang Zi aka Old House Cafe, read it from newspaper, read it from blogs about this place, and now it’s time for me to actually visit this place.

As the name says so, it’s an cafe with a theme of traditional design, antique style table and chair, with air conditioner on the ceiling, resembles the feeling of modern vs traditional.

All these with the quiet environment certainly makes this place a good cafe to hang around, chit chatting with friends and such, but how will the food fares?

Ghee Seng Tom Yam @ Penang

Ghee Seng Tom Yam at Lebuhraya Raya Merdeka is just so close to my house in Penang, and I always saw their shinny sign board when I pass by the main road. After reading some food porn by CKLam, Penangtuapui and Criz, I decided to give them a visit by driving my superb Modenas Kriss  120 there.

The shop seems to have a major renovation not too long ago as the interior seems to be very different from what I saw in the internet. I almost thought I went in the wrong shop, but judging from the shop name and the crowd inside, I guess I came to the right place.

Although many people had compliment that the food served at Weld Quay Tree Shade Seafood is very fast and which is true, but the food here at Ghee Seng is even faster! Our chair is not even hot but our food is already on our table!

Belacan fried kangkung. It was not over-fried, but taste-wise it’s just  normal. 6.5/10

The Siam Loh Bak here is good stuff. I love the filling as it’s very different from the Chinese style one. The filling is a bit like otak-otak. 7.2/10

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

Weld Quay Tree Shade Seafood Restaurant @ Penang

Tree shade seafood restaurant (dua chiu kar), located just opposite the Jetty, when mentioned, everyone who patronize it before will say 1 thing, the food served is fast, as in extremely fast.

Besides, many also comment that the seafood here is fresh and with reasonable pricing. The restaurant might look very old already, but the choice of seafood here is really a lot for its type.

Another thing is, once you make 1 of your order, the person will straight away tell the cook to prepare for it. They do not operate like other restaurant when they only prepare it once you finish your order, hence it’s fast huh?
