Back in college days, there is one little place that we used to hang out when craving for desert, before they move to a proper building which is this Crepe Cottage that located along side in Gurney Drive, well,  the current landmark to look for is this little shop is located next to Coffee Island or Overtime at Gurney Drive.

Crepe (1)

This humble little shop have very limited in place is run by a family and they have been operating for more than 10 years if I am not mistaken. Their shop is very limited in space, therefore always you have to wait as their service is pretty slow. On average for serving is about 20minutes and waiting time can stretch till 1 hour. So if you do not have patient then you can forget about this place.

Crepe (3)

There are quite alot of choices of Crepes to choose from in the menu with front and back . . .

Crepe (4)

Besides that, they do sell fusion food ranging from western, Italian and some locals cuisine.

Crepe (5)

Nutela @ RM 11

Crepe (6)

So we ordered 2 different crepes starting off with this one in wraps style. Wrap with banana slices, top with whipped cream, shower with chocolate rice on top and chocolate syrup and a scoop of Choco ice cream turns out to be the winner compare to another one, as banana is so fresh n soft, love the strong taste of it and pairs very well with nutela chocolate. The wrap is very aromatic and just eat along with full combination is savory.

Crepe (8)

 Sunburst @ RM 10

Is another version of pancake desert is more like so round slice like MacD breakfast pancake but of course its much better than MacD alot of times. This comes with slices of mango, peanut and top with Mango Ice cream. We just love the base of the pancake . Still think Nutella is better.

Well, not many places offer very nice pancake desert and this is certainly one of the places to look for, prices might be a bit expensive as I still think worth spending for once a while .. for their food I have not try before yet. One of the recommended place by me if you are craving for crepes in Penang.

If you do find other better places please do let me know, I love to go find out on it .. 😉

It has been quite a while since I last step into Gurney Plaza on its basement level that filled mostly with F&B outlets. Last round when I went back, while accompany my friend shopping my friend suggested this Xuan Xin Ramen Kitchen that its pretty good. To me, its like another new shop!

xuan xin (1)

Seeing this place so pack on odd hours as in 3pm and its still full house, then told my friend no problem, lets go especially anything with Ramen which is one of my favourite.

xuan xin (3)

xuan xin (4)

There are quite  a number of Ramen to choose from and price of it are pretty reasonable. Most of the Ramen selection I would say a bit in fushion style.

xuan xin (6)

Sze Chuan Dan Dan Ramen @ RM 11.80 that usual will served with lots of peanuts in the noodle, soup taste a bit spicy and thick.

xuan xin (5)

Compare to another choice, the rest of us prefer Ramen with Sze Chuan Soup @ RM 11.80. Love the taste of it, sour more than spicy also soup its a bit thick and starchy that comes to my liking. Recommended~

xuan xin (7)

I have eaten quite many Shanghai Steamed Dumpling and find that for the price of RM 5.50 which will be very precent compare to alot other restaurant. Skin might be slightly thicker compare to the others, soup base in it and texture of the meat is good!

I could say that, I certainly do not mind to return to this shop again to try out other of its range.

This shop had been in my wanted list food hunting for quite long time, usually which the time is not ngam that me and my friends ended up eat other choices. So this round, we were totally lost do not know what to eat then remember this shop. The place is not big but always quite pack.

A modern living room style cross that came across my mind on their interior, quite a cozy place but it’s a bit warm after a while.

Besides the ala cart menu, they do offer set menu also which is kinda worth to try out.
We order set meal ‘3 Cup Chicken Rice’. Thick in sauce that goes along well with the rice but there is nothing special to comment on. RM 14.90

‘Pork Chop Rice Set’ RM13.90 with traditional method of Taiwan, their rice will always pour on with mince meat and the gravy. Its flavorful with the rice and . . .
The pork chop, was well deep fried and I guess pork cannot deep fried too long that will make the prok meat abit solid and chewy. I still prefer the fried chicken on Shin Lin Taiwan street food snack.
Their ‘Milk Tea’ is good, thick and quite fragrance with the tea taste and the pearl is the type that I like, chewy and a bit solid like chewing gum. RM3.50

After a while in this shop, I remember that, there is another Taiwan Food which is quite good mention by my friend and I heard during my colleage time long long time ago was the one at 1-Stop. Wondering is the shop still there.

Lower Ground,
In front of Tenpanyaki stall
*Non-Halal

This is one of my friend’s favourite Rojak stall which I have always think that it is so so only but cannot denied that this stall business is much better compare to the rest of the rojak stall available there. My friend was ‘ta pauing’ and decided to try again for the rojak since like say till so nice and nice.
It was already 11.30pm this time and the people still flowing in to get the Rojak. It is priced at RM3, RM5, RM8 and RM10. If you want to customise the pricing by yourself just let the seller know. They will do exactly what you want.

This is the Rojak that came out. It turn water very fast is because of the fruits. The gravy was not sticky enough like thick glue and still thinks that it is not as nice. Well, again, different people have different taste bud.. Still my best rojak stall is the 1 I like alot at Lebuh Macallum, Rojak.

If you are looking for better Rojak at Gurney Drive Hawker center, we still thinks that this stall has better taste although the seller is a bit LANSI(celaka), Penang Best Rojak.

AT LAST I manage to find back this western food stall which were located beside Green House Kopitiam, which my friend introduce to me famous for its Corden Bleu…Then let my friend kutuk me saying I outdate, they have been here for quite some time d.

Their kitchen looks more like a good western food stall already.

This is their menu with limited choice to choose from and those in red are consider their signature. They have slightly increase in price which I think is reasonable as the last time I dine was bout 6 years ago. Lol

Again I ordered ‘Mushroom Soup’. Which the price thought of just try la… Very nice and creamy, quite alot of mushroom slice in there as every scoop you took up there will be mushroom in there. RM4 only.

The next order was ‘Ribeye Steak’ medium rare. I got shock when the portion was serve. I am like ‘wowwww, so big piece punya lembu’.. I cant take beef so no comment on this as I get to know this is one of the nicest also mention by my friend as not many hawker area western food can cook something out like this. RM19.50 for this fat ribeye.

This is of course my favourite back in those donkey days. So I ordered back the same thing. ‘Chicken Corden Bleu’. When got served I was quite happy with the condition, as expected dry and golden brown. Once I use my knife cut it open, the cheeze in there start flowing out, you know like those water overflow, someting like that. It is stuff with ham and cheeze. With the first mouth into this mouth watering bleu, it just taste as nice as back in those days. Still have not dissapoint me after last ate it. Still have the cheeze taste yet you can still taste the ham and chicken with the strong aroma after being stuff in there and fried. Cost RM9 which I think is reasonable. The last time I ate was RM6.50 6 years back.

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.
