Alor Setar - Kafe Kim Hoe

When we back to Alor Setar, we always try something new for meal. So, for this time, we went for this 鸡丝面 near the Sentosa Plaza for breakfast.

The outlook of the shop, yeah, the shop is going to move when we ate there. By now, most probably it has move a few shops down the road.

This shot shows how near the shop to the Sentosa Plaza.

The noodle stalls...


Little daughter yawning since it is early in the morning.

The wantan is really nice, look at the ingredient inside.

Juru Auto City - Winter Warmers Coffee & Tea House

Winter Warmers always give me an impression of a vintage English tea house since the first time I saw it at Gurney Plaza. However, I never step into it as it looks like it is going to cost me some money for a cup of tea.

As we were looking for something to eat during Friday's dinner time at Juru Autocity, we decided to give Winter Warmers a try.

The outlook of Winter Warmers at Juru Autocity...I always like to visit any restaurant at Autocity as they are always more spacious than other branch in Penang. The restaurant is on the same row as KFC, Sushi King, Tao, Nandos and it is besides Subway.

The ambience of the restaurant, soft light and the vintage setting, it gives you a soothing and relax feel couple with the soft music playing in the background.

Some cakes in display, as you can see, there are free wifi available through the Riger router + modem. :P

I like the table cloth, it is nice...

Lavender cheese cake, the aroma of lavender plus the cheese taste just great! The portion is just nice for two persons to share as a dessert after the meal. (But we eat it as appertizer, :P)

The tissue has nice printing as well...

The unique serving of the restaurant - The drink is always serve in a jug plus a wine glass. This is fruit cocktail (forgot the exact name). :P

I ordered Lavender drink, it comes with lavender jelly inside, nice!

Main dish, mango chicken with rice, it is served with half mango! The usual problem with any mango based food/drink is that the taste is always like the cough medicine. It is not easy to get a mango based food that really taste good. What I can say about this dish is that the sauce is just nice and there is no cough medicine taste in it! Which explains that there are no artificial "mango" flavouring added. :P

Cheese baked seafood + macaroni...

Me and wife, enjoying the drinks......

It is a nice place for tea time, gossiping with friends and family. :P

King Street - The Sire Museum Restaurant

It was my birthday that we decided to eat something special at Georgetown, and I decided to bring my wife to this famous The Sire Museum Restaurant which featured in famous food blog like and (since she has been consistently remind me about this restaurant. :P).

Now, some story on the restaurant. The place is actually owned by the Yap's family where it is started off as a museum which telling the story of the Yap's family. It is from here that I learned about the history of the famous BHL bank in Penang. I'm not sure who are the owner of the restaurant but it is a 2 in 1 concept which means it is a restaurant at the front part of the building and a museum at the rear of the building.

As we don't really know where it is located, we really have to depends on the information on the web, but seriously I didn't pay attention to the info as I was way too confident with my Garmin Nuvi255W and MFM free map. It shows that I had make a big mistake, after our visit to Kuan Yin Temple, we went into the car and switch on the GPS, I type in "The Sire", none......=.="

So, with no other choice, I tried my luck by driving around the area as it should be around (tipped by my friend). After turn one and two, as we drive along King Street towards the new Great Eastern building, tada, there it is The Sire Museum Restaurant on our right. It is a bit tough to find parking lot at lunch time but maybe it is my birthday, there is one empty slot just near the restaurant. So I park and feed the meter for 1 and a half hour. Then we proceed to the restaurant.

So, this is what it looks like at the outside, there are actually one servant waiting outside to open the door for you. Usually when this happens, you'll know that the food is not going to be cheap.

The operation hours spell out clearly beside the entrance of the restaurant, together with the gred of the restaurant. Gred A shows that this is a clean and nice place. Walk into the restaurant you'll first pass through the bar area with a few tables, then you'll need to pass through a small lane into the main restaurant area, where you'll be served lunch or dinner.

The bar at the main restaurant area, you can see that there are plenty of selections available. They do offer some cocktail in the menu.

The dining table are well placed and decorate. Each table has a fresh orchid (must be not cheap) and an oil lamp to improve the ambience.

There are a few sitting at the first floor as well.

Another side of the restaurant, you can see there is a waiter guarding the entrance to the museum. You are not allowed to take photograph in the museum. So what I can say is, it worth to pay a visit to the museum eventhough you have no intention to dine at the restaurant.

The plaque which means "the south sun" in mandarin.

The upper floor is the museum area as well, if I'm not mistaken, the museum has 4 floor of display.

Plants at one of the side of the restaurant, the design of the restaurant is really carefully taken care of. They even building a nice cabinet to actually semi-hide the air cooler in it at the side of the bar. So, if you don't really pay attention, you can't even notice there is an air cooler there.

Close up at the orchid.

The oil lamp.

Toothpick holder.

Apple juice, it is not cheap.

Red guava freeze.

Appertizer - French onion soup. When it is served, I a bit hesitate to taste it as it is not really looking good. But after the first few sip, when your tongue start to get use to it, you'll start to appreciate it.

Close up on the toast bread in the middle of the soup. There are butter taste when you bite the bread, which means that it is well toast to golden color together with butter on it, nice!

Close look at the dining table, so you can see that it is not a one whole piece of the table top, there is actually some space in between the wood pieces, so becareful if you are placing your tiny car keys or any tiny stuff on the table, especially don't hold your iphone in vertical and place it on the table as support. You have been warned. :P

Forgot what is this, wife ordered grilled fish dishes, it comes with some melted butter on top. It looks black because my PS skill is too bad, over contrast on the photo. :P

It actually taste nice and the portion is huge (for our appetite).

I like prawn, so I ordered a big prawn (lobster) pasta. The baby lobster is grilled to perfection and served together with the pasta and tomato based sauce. I felt the lobster meat is a bit too tender as some part it is really hard to cut and chew.

Closer look at the lobster.

We didn't order any dessert as both of us are full.

Bukit Tengah - Seven Village Restaurant (Breakfast)

2nd April 2010 - My thirty second birthday, both me and my wife took leave to enjoy a carefree day and have a simple and nice celebration. Early in the morning, we started our journey by having a nice breakfast. At first I did thinking of the normal coffee shop, but the weather is so hot that and I don't want to sweat like a waterfall early in the morning. Then, I was thinking of Old Town, but don't really want to have breakfast there. left the choices of McD Autocity or Seven Village Restaurant. Well, McD breakfast is nice, but we decided to try the breakfast at Seven Village Restaurant. So, I ordered toast bread, Milo hot and soft boiled eggs; wife ordered Milo ice, "Guang Jiang" and the famous "Koay Teow Th'ng".

The hot milo.

The Fire and Ice Milo...

咸蛋超人! Nice......and it is cheap! Oh ya, they use the Omega egg as well.

Toast bread, nice!

"Guang Jiang", nice......and I ordered 2, since the plate is so empty, so they use the chili sauce to write a Chinese character seven on the plate, nice decoration. After food, time to go for a simple Heritage trip at Georgetown!
