There is a Malay hawker stall by the roadside located opposite of Masjid Bandar Bayan Baru which appears to have a decent crowd dining whenever we drove by during lunch hour. Out of curiosity, we stopped by here for a lunch and was impressed by the array of dishes displayed. On top of the regular fares such as fried chicken, vegetables and fish, we were surprised to find the shop operators were busy grilling ayam panggang madu and ayam panggang merah at one corner.











Just like any standard Malay warung, feel free to pick any dishes you like and pay at the other counter. Ayam Panggang Madu / Merah seems to be a popular item here as almost all the patrons will pick it, apart of ikan sumbat sambal which is another item that caught our attention.



Our meal for the day cost RM 20 along with a cup of teh tarik, which we felt pretty reasonable considering there are 2 pieces of chickens, fish, brinjal and water spinach. Both fried chicken and Ayam Panggang Merah are well executed, possessing succulent texture and delicious in taste. Though Ikan Sumbat Sambal is small in size but we love the sambal, which is well balanced between sweet and spicy.

Overall, this unnamed Malay stall serves as a good place for a quick lunch with delicious dishes.

PepperSalt Restaurant is a low key cafe hiding at the quaint Amoy Lane, just neighbour to the bustling Hutton Lane.The restaurant bears a tagline "carnivorous restaurant" but in fact they serve an inexpensive menu skewed toward breakfast such as sandwiches and burgers. The simple and homey ambiance make PepperSalt restaurant an ideal place for a nice breakfast without causing a wallet hemorrhage.


The food served here, as the restaurant name suggests, mainly relies on pepper and salt for seasoning as we tasted. Bacon Cheeseburger (RM 12) has housemade Treacle Bacon, caramelized onion, mozzarella, cheddar topping the 150g pork batty and sandwiched by garlic toast bun. The combination worked well, in particularly caramelized onion did give it a twist by reducing the greasiness of pork patty. Heavy garlic scent could be tasted from the buns as well, and may cheered by those who are garlic fans.

We topped up RM 7 to have the bacon cheeseburger served with cheese fries and a cup of white coffee. Not a bad deal though.


Salmon Smoked Croissant (RM 10.90) has nice smoked salmon sandwiched in between nicely executed croissant, along with cream cheese and raw onions. We liked the way the croissant was baked, which was crispy outside and fluffy inside. Smoked Salmon is a good deal as it was served with a cup of brewed coffee complimentary.


Overall, the inexpensive price tags by PepperSalt restaurant with above average food makes here an ideal place to stop by, should you prefer an option with less conventional Chinese style breakfast menu.

Located at the corner connecting Jalan Gurdwara and Jalan Magazine, The Line Sandwich Cafe is easily missed out if you are driving passing the area. Though the name portrays as if the cafe is a sandwich specialist, the menu speaks otherwise. It offers a range of western cuisine in a one page menu, and with a special corner for breakfast choices that run till 4pm. What we enjoyed is the modern and cozy environment of the cafe, great service and the crew that make it a good place to enjoy some above average food.


We had a bowl of Seafood Aglio Olio (RM 21) that comes with prawns, clams and mussels. It was a fair price, considering the variety and quantity of seafood given. Spaghetti noodles were cooked to al-dente texture but the taste was slightly unusual compared to the conventional aglio olio. The spicy taste was too strong, overshadowing the olive oil taste and the noodles were a bit oily for enjoyment. If not of the greasiness, the dish would have been alright.


The Line Sandwich (RM 23) would be an ideal choice for those who loves to have sandwich. It comes in a bigger portion, having pork bacon, smoked salmon, eggs and hams as filling and covered with homemade bread that gives a full sensation. It is served with well cut French Fries too.


A classic dessert that will let those having sweet tooth to scream, Crepe Suzette (RM 20) is made to perfection with excellent executed crepe texture which is topped with a nicely made sauce of caramelized sugar and butter. While the appearance may look like roti canai initially, the fluffy and soft texture, coupled with vanilla ice cream will give a smooth ending for the meal.



Coffee here was nothing to shout about, as the Hot Cappuccino (RM 10) is like just another cup of coffee made from machine with a higher price tag.

Two Frenchies at Lebuh Bishop is one of the very few French restaurant in Penang. At first glance, many would have mistakenly thought Two Frenchies as a dog cafe, as the cafe bears a dog logo. However, it was later clarified that Frenchies literally mean French bulldog. The cafe features an extensive menu of Western style dishes with French influences with a wine menu. On top of that, many would have thought French cuisine often associated with premium price tags but this is not the case at Two Frenchies. 
Two Frenchies Signature Burger (RM 29.90)





Two Frenchies Signature Burger is a must have burger here with its luxury serving style yet friendly price tag. We get to choose the doneness of the burger patty, and it was perfectly executed by the chef on its medium rare. The combination of bacon and the succulent patty worked well, and having it along with well done fries was a decadence.

Confit de Canard


Confit De Canard (RM 32.90) features a dark confit sitting on a bedding of perfectly executed mashed potatoes. It is crispy on the skin and not too dry on the meat, and having it coated with the soft mashed potatoes is an indulgence. 

Classic French Onion Soup (RM 14.50)
When we thought RM 14.50 for a bowl of Classic French Onion Soup was too lavish, we were rewarded with the a bowl of epicurean bowl of savoury soup. Mixture of onion, herbs and a tad of oiliness (presuming from butter) granted the soup an excellent taste when consumed hot.

Mousse Au Chocolate (RM 11.90)
Dessert choices are not spared from the menu. Mousse Au Chocolate serves as something nice to end the meal. If you prefer a non chocolate version of dessert, then Creme Brule would serve as a good alternative though our stomach capacity disallows us to have too much dessert.

Cappuccino (RM 9.50)

Chulia Street welcomes another new and modest cafe on the varieties of eateries along the bustling street in the heart of Georgetown. Passer-by may not noticed the presence of Roast & Bake, a cafe that only owns a small menu but serves one of the best Porchetta (roast pork) in the town. The humble cafe is located beside The Ais cafe, and it is easily missed out if you did not pay attention to it

Classic porchetta RM16.90 



The Porchetta is available in 3 flavours - Classic, Mamamia and Asian. At one instance, RM 16.90 may seems to be expensive for 2 pieces of Classic Porchetta but the size and quality rightly justified the price. The porchetta is big in size, with crackling skin and perfectly seasoned meat,  It is served along with 3 different condiments - Ginger, Mint and Brown Sauce, then sitting on a decent quantity of coleslaw.

For us, the Porchetta taste is perfect even without the condiments, though flirting the Porchetta with the different combination of condiments yield a different level of enjoyment. It is one of the best Porchetta we have enjoyed thus far, and will definitely worthy for a second visit.


The coffee on the other side was mediocre. Their forte seems to be lies to their Porchetta, and other dishes perhaps.

Ipoh restaurants are renowned of maintaining its tradition to churn out the original flavour of the food. One of the big name that you ought to try out in Ipoh is Guan Heong Biscuit Shop, one of the six outlet that managed to establish themselves on the list of World Street Food Top 50 concluded in Manila, and bearing a history of 100 years old establishment (in 2018). They are well known for its Salted Tau Sar Pheah, and as time goes by, their signature list also expanded to include Meat Floss with Lotus Paste Biscuit, Meat Floss with Salted Egg Biscuit, Dried Meat Biscuit and Hawaiian Biscuit.

Hawaiian Biscuit is an unique creation with the East meets West concept.

When the Chicken Claypot House from Singapore opened their first Malaysia's outlet in Penang, the concept of using claypot chicken as the base for steamboat is something new but it is quickly accepted here. Even after years of establishment, the restaurant still flushed with patrons and tourist. Another reason for their success could be due to their strategic location at the bustling Macalister Road as well. The steamboat ingredients are served in self service practice, nicely categorized with plate colours just like sushi king, and wrapped with plastic wrap for freshness. However, the price point is on the higher side.






We had their Signature Chicken Claypot steamboat, a big whole pot of chicken packed with shallots, and gingers. Besides the continuous heat supplied to the pot, the gingers had warmed us so much that we basically sweat like shower. The soup was rich and nicely seasoned, but it is much suitable for those prefer bolder flavours. However, their service was great by constantly dropping by to check and top up the soup. We wishes the chicken could be much meaty, but equal proportionate of the green versus the chicken is an added point.

The opening of Gee Heang Bak Kut Teh at Golden Triangle offers the neighborhood another choice for Bak Kut Teh, and better with the popular option of Dry Bak Kut Teh in the menu. While a hot claypot of Bak Kut Teh isn't enough to satiate your appetite, there are a wide selection of side dishes to top on such Spare rib, Bentong beancurd or even Yau Mak to add some green to balance your meal.





Both the soup and dry version of the claypot Bak Kut Teh are great in their own way. The rich and aromatic herbal soup is soothing especially during the rainy time, while the dry version is intenser with spiciness plus the thick soy sauce used. We added on meatball and you tiao for more varieties.
