Usually I always stop by at Tapah and Restaurant Jejantas for a pee or eat or drink. This round try on Kajang Satay over here as always do not know how to get to Kajang and don know which stall is nice. So since it is packed with people, join lah the crowd.This was my 2nd visit to this stall. 1st time was very satisfying.

This round I ordered 5xChicken the normal chicken satay that every one would order. Taste good with its own marinated sauce and the satay meat is soft.

5xDeer meat is abit hard like chewing a bubble gam and only can swallow. quite disappointed for this at this time.

5x lamb is so so this time also. The meat that they used was not as nice as last time and alot of burn also. Quite disappointed for this round maybe was different people pangang it.

Actually satay one of the most important thing to make it nice also is the gravy. This 1 is very nice. Full with peanuts and the sauce that they use is nice compare what I have eat so far. For the GRAVY only.

Total Bill comes to RM14. Can say that the food in here no QC. 1st time very good 2nd time ok ok.

One of the famous Tim Sum shop for breakfast in Penang. It has also been quite some time I did not visit this shop. Last visited was bout 5 years ago. As I have to bring my friend for breakfast, and decided to come back this shop as always mention by my dad how good it was as this shop is famous to all the nearby neighbourhood for quite long time already.


The shop is as usual packed with people from morning to night. As they have to different sessions. Morning will be the Tim Sum and Night will be the fried dish.

The troly being pulled infront of me, so get to choose what I want.

Ordered the Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fan’ whereby a must have dish for Tim Sum, it was so so only as the skin is too thick already. We only finish the prawns.

The ‘Wu Tau’ as one of my favourite. But today I think the yam, do not have the yam taste, feels abit weird but the ‘char siew pork’ in there taste nice. Not too salty yet perfectly juicy. Just the yam. Aiii

‘Fried Fu Chuk is one of the favourite, it is nicely fried as the crust of the skin is very crispy and the filling in it is very soft like home made fish ball. The mayonnaise we believe is home made too, as it taste sweet and goes along very well with the fu chuk.

Loh Mai Kai’ a common food for tim sum. Looks nice and oily, the chicken and the mushroom in it do not have much taste but the taste still lack of one taste, the original loh mai kai taste. Still feel that the 1 that I had in Genting is very nice and highly recommended tim.

This is one of their signature dish. Do not know what it is called but in the whole pau trolly this is the only odd colour looking, the auntie was selling hard on this. Decided to try it since she said its one of the best selling and the last piece.
I must agree with the auntie that this sure taste nice. The top is very soft like eating cake, and the filling inside is just nice, blend well with the top. Highly Recommended.
‘Char Siew Pau my favourite during tim sum. Very nice. The texture of the pau is nice and soft, the char siew inside is nicely fried along with the sauce.
I forgot what is this called already, by having me 1 person finishing the whole thing, taste quite good along with the cilisauce there, i think they have mixed it, chili sauce with the ‘tim cheong‘.
I personally do not like this but my friend she is having great time eating this. This depends on individual taste already.
Pai Kuat. So far still have not manage to find a nice 1 to eat during tim sum. Would not really recommend this as the meat is nicely steam but the sauce do not have a strong black bean sauce,the chili taste lack of it, and lack of salt.
Round up the whole session with a desert. As always my meal will usually end with desert. The ‘Longan Tau Fu Fa’. The pieces is very soft like taufu, the juice in there is not too sweet, and top up with longan. Just nice to complete the whole meal.
When I was paying the bill, I was quite shock again, as we ate so much and the total was only RM25. Aii, cheap loh~ With the food quality and the pricing so have not much comment on it. All the auntie there is very nice and warm.
They can just talk and talk to you and the auntie commented on my friend, ‘Wah, where r u guys from?Japan ah? then I laughed. Korea ah? you guys don look like local lei(in hokkein) you guys so fair. Then told the auntie, no la. We all ‘Pun Teh Lang’ (local ppl in hokkien)

It has been ages since last I came here, it was during my college here and used to hang out here for tea time as I was studying at Disted College during year 2001. Calculations come out around 8 years since last I visit this place. It was the ah pek Char koey Teow still the same person. Luckily was not closed. This place is what we called ‘Chiu Chang Ka‘, direct translation Under the Tree located at Pulau Tikus area.
This is the stall that stay at the same place for the past donkey years. One good thing about this stall is he uses charcoal to fried it is always better to those than using gas, fried by one plate at the time. The special about this uncle stall is he uses Duck egg, upon request. Must try it. Taste much better.
Tadaa, this is the uncle ‘Char Koey Teow with duck egg’. Have the wok taste, nicely fried and not too dry yet the si ham is alot, with chinese sausage and only RM3.50.
After leaving Penang for not too long, and I ordered Teh O Ice, and guess how much is it, Only RM0.90. Wow, didnt know still exist with this kind of pricing and the funny thing is when the lady come and told me its RM0.90, then I like ‘Hah, 90cents ah’. she like yeah la, you come out from hutan or too long never come out eat already iziit. Lol..It has been long long time since pay for a drink less than RM1.
This place also famous for Economy bee hoon with fried popiah on top, unfortunately it was closed that day, or I do not know still exist or not.
