Sunway Carnival Mall Seberang Prai- Kim Tavern Restaurant

After visiting to Penang Bird Park, it is lunch time. Since it was raining, we decided to eat indoor at Sunway Carnival Mall, which is just 2 mins away from the park.

There are plenty of restaurant in the mall, we decided to choose something that we never try before - Kim Tavern Restaurant.

It is located at the Lower Ground level (LG-04) near to Nandos and Kopitiam Junction. This is the entrance of the restaurant. The setup of the restaurant is quite nice, but the lighting is a bit dim, I'll like it to be brighter.

The table has been ready with the culinary set...nothing special though.

Little girl happy with her seat and busy reading the menu...the waiter's attitude is not very good, it gives me a "look" when my little girl not willing to return the menu, and I can see there are still plenty of menus at the counter...

Parents and my 100 plus. :P After a round of walking in the bird park, time for rejuvenation with 100 Plus.

Nasi lemak with curry chicken...the rice is not fragrance enough (in my opinion lar), I prefer a stronger coconut milk taste...

Dad's nasi lemak with rendang chicken, not bad...

The bills......

If you out of idea on what to eat when you are in Sunway Carnival Mall, you can give it a try. :)

Penang Abu Siti Lane - Anba Coconut

If you having lunch around Burma road or Macalister road, leave your stomach some space for the special dessert at Abu Siti Lane...the famous Anba Coconut (water or jelly).

Abu Siti Lane is a one way street, so make sure you turn in from Macalister road. You need to turn in before the Red Rock Hotel.

At the end of the Abu Siti lane, you'll see the Anba Coconut on your left. Be prepare to turn a few round to get a car park.

This is the shop, you can see that it is a small shop with green coconuts place everywhere inside out the shop. If you lucky, you can see the lorry unload the coconuts at the shop. It is really a lot!

Some coconuts place outside the shop.

The just arrived coconut...

There are a few big trash can place around the shop, you can see almost every trash bin almost full with the coconut hull......

I like the coconut jelly, they peel off the outer layer, and do "something" to the coconut, and becomes jelly!

The jelly is transparent and taste really nice and cold, nyam nyam...

Another view from opposite the shop...

Penang Abu Siti Lane - Hotbowl Nyonya Delights

Since the first I tried the Kari Mee here, I had always want to go again with my wife. Well, since she is now work in the Island, we found a Friday lunch time and go to test it out.

The restaurant is situated along Abu Siti Lane off Macalister Road. You'll need to turn into the lane through Macalister Road as it is a one way lane.

There are not really a lots of parking lot here, so you might need to make a few round or park further away.

This is the outlook of the shop, it is an old residential house converted into a restaurant. The red color sign is very unique and you'll be able to notice some distance away.

We chose a seat near to the door. At every table, there is a small plaque which spit out the number and a name card of the restaurant. From the name card, you can get the information of the restaurant, the address, phone number, business hours and watch out, it close on Monday. :)

At the other side of the wall opposite our table, there are nice menu's framed on the wall and we can see that there are plenty types of food being served by the restaurant. You'll need to order from the counter, so choose your table and then go to the counter to order your food. I ordered 2 bowls of the famous "white curry mee" and a plate of the "white steam chicken".

This is how the white curry mee looks like when it is served. The different with the other stall is that they don't add in the chili by default, so the soup looks white. The clams looks fresh and delicious......nyam nyam.

Every table have one bowl of the chili ready. It is being capped properly and you can see that the cover is actually cut to let the spoon placed properly.

This is how the chili sauce looks like.

Put the chili onto the curry mee and mixed it up, nice......but beware, it is quite hot, so careful with the portion you add into it.

The "white steam chicken", it is served cold with sesame sauce and having all the bones removed.

Another view...there are some cucumber at the bottom.

Look at the meat, it is delicious and juicy, I can see that every table also have a plate of it.

See? This is the only bones you can find after finish up the whole plate of chicken. :P

The curry mee is so tasty, yummy! We finish even all the soup......

The shop even sell their homemade chili sauce......

Closer look at the chili sauce.

Chef at work, the restaurant is always full at lunch time, so try to be there early. :P

Serdang - Leong Ya Indah Restaurant

Another famous food at Serdang is the "Paper Wrap Chicken", well there are 3 shops there which selling the same thing, but the most famous and delicious is the one hidden at the back. After getting tips from my sister to look for the one without the air-cond and also have a "女" word on the sign, finally we found the shop.

This is the front of the shop, they actually wrapping the chicken at the shoplot besides the restaurant.

Closer look at the signboard, you can see the "女" word. Their "Yong Tau Fu" is famous too...

This is the menu...simple and clear, every dishes also have photo illustration.

Since we got 10 people, we ordered 10 "Paper Wrapped Chicken". From the look, can see that they actually deep fried the whole thing.

Closer look on it, they pre-cut a hole for you to easily unwrap and eat the yummy chicken.

This is how the chicken looks like, it smells good and have a strong soya sauce flavour...

Well, we also ordered the famous "Yong Tau Fu".

The main bowl of "Yong Tau Fu", it doesn't looks very appetizing, but it taste not bad. I still prefer the original "Ampang Yong Tau Fu". :P

After some oily food, here comes the delicious and appetizing soup...

Table full of food......

The fried wan tan come with the "Yong Tau Fu".

Fried egg with vege, taste nice, suspecting no "Ajinomoto" added. :P

Kajang - Satay Kajang Haji Samuri

Since I stayed at Kajang for 2 nights, it is really ridiculous if I miss out the famous Satay Kajang.. So, with the GPS setup (MFM map really rocks, I can find it as a POI), and in my friends Hyundai Avante (Singapore plat!!!!), we start our journey to the place.

When we reach the place, I was really stunned, because I never know that a place which famous for satay can actually be a 3 storeys commercial building! It is really huge......

Signboard inside the restaurant...

Their satay menu, you can see that there is lots of choices and the price is reasonable.
They do offer other food like mee goreng and etc......since those are not the main food, I just skip it.

The ordering counter, they have a very good ordering system, where you have to order and pay first (remember to mention your table number). Then they'll deliver your food. Everything is computerised and it works something like those fast food chains.

They even stick the table number to the drinks (only on 1 of the glass). The drinks menu is very limited as there are not much choice, we all order cold sugar cane drinks.

Then, after a while, the satay arrived. We ordered chicken and lamb satay. The size is quite big compare with others, and it was barbecue to perfection, where the outside is a bit crispy, and the meat inside still soft and tender.

Close up on the chicken satay.

Nasi impit and cucumber...standard dish to go with satay...

The satay sauce, it is a blend between crushed roasted peanuts and sugar. It is a bit too dilute to my likings. My friend actually take it like soup. =.="

The red chili sauce come with the satay, it is crunchy and spicy.

The bills......
