Penang

This is the place where a few of my friends been talking about when I am back, a must place to visit. I did not know since when Penang have such a nice place to chill or yum cha. It is called ‘Sunset Bistro’.
 

It gives you kinda the feeling when you are on your vacation in one of the nice island, and there are places like this for you to chit chat and drink beer. If you are too stress from your daily work, need a peaceful environment to calm your mind or need some good times with your friends or your gf/bf, I would strongly agree on this Bistro. If you are hungry they serve hawker to western food, beer, fruit juice, normal drinks but the kitchen close early at 1030-11.00 pm.

This is what I mean, a very relaxing place whereby they put music like, soft house, Jamaican, jazz, and some R n B towards middle of the night. You can just sit there close your eyes and listen to the music, enjoying the sea breeze and the sound of the wave splashing on the sea side.
If you would like to take picture, be there by 6.30, watch the sunset. I was at 9pm and only realise that if I would to come early it would be nice. I will be there again on 6.30 the next round.

This is the food that I ordered ‘Char Koay Teow‘. The taste of it has a very nice strong taste of the wok yet alil bit of the left over burn koay teow a bit which he take in on the noodle also which he did not throw it off. This food is quite satisfying as I was drinking with Tiger beer.

Walk till the end turn left on the road. you will get to see Sunset Bistro

Back for Chinese New Year holiday, and the first thing came into my mind was the rojak that I miss alot. I stayed in this area when I was small. Been eating this 2 stalls when I was a kid. The famous mee goreng among the neighbourhood. Still frying so well and so many people. I was ta pauing for my uncle. Still have to wait for around 15 minutes.


This is my favourite rojak stall, for people who never tried before, you should drop by. it is abit different compare to the 1 in Gurney Drive. Never failed to lick eat all the ‘heh kor’.

Still the old couple doing it. They have been runing this stall since when I was 8 till now. More than 15 years already.
This is how it looks like for the ‘heh kor’ covered with dry shrimps and peanuts. The ‘heh kor’ is thick yet gummy.. yumm..
Told the uncle I want big rojak, ended up giving me more Cuttlefish and this bloody thing cost me RM10. Very expensive. Because of it is famous, the pricing is abit out. So you must ask before you purchase. If not kena parang very sharp.

This trip back to Penang I have not much time to hunt back my favourite food but manage to go for my favourite restaurant. Bali Hai @ Gurney. They had a few signature dish that I always would order. For those who are going to Penang for this festive season, MUST not miss this nice restaurant because they do serve fresh seafood, instead of most of the time, penangites will drive to Tambun for fresh seafood. This restaurant is another alternative.

This is the reastaurant outlook where you drive passby, will attract your attention because of its crowd and also their decoration as there are a few tables uniquely decorate and isolated from other table with the like of kampung, atap style infront of the restaurant.

This is whereby they store all the fresh seafood’s.

Fresh lobster good in shasimi and cheeze baked. Mouth watering…..

More options to choose from, if you do not know how to choose fresh, just Tembak lah!!! or ask the person to assist~

This restaurant is usually damm packed on the weekend. If you decided to go around weekend or public holidays, the best time to reach is before 7.30pm. Easy parking inside the restaurant and easy table to get. If you reach after 8pm, ermmm..you can expect to wait a bit.
This is what me and my parents had ordered, Kam Hiong Lala(longer version)’ Actually, this does not goes well with longer version and not a good combo of kam hiong with this. Usually I ordered in fried with chilies. Trying new taste. Definitely I ate most of it because of the nice taste. The lala also fresh.
This is their ‘Signature Taufu. Definitely must try. Inside the taufu are stuffed with small prawns or what we call ‘heh bi'(hokkien) and it is fried and abit salty. It is very soft in the inside and very nice aroma of the ‘heh bi’, goes very well if you are eating with rice.

Wah!!! This is definitely my favourite dish. ‘Wong Kam Har(prawn)’ Whatever with Wong Kam defiantly taste nice. The lady ask us to try with the prawn after peel the skin. So decided to go along with it. But definitely does not really taste as nice with prawn with their shell. So therefore do not request to ask them to remove the prawn shell. Taste better with it. You can ask them to do ‘Wong Kam Crab’ and Wong Kam something something. It is also nice.

The taste of it, is just similar what I eat back in Melbourne, Chinatown which is the restaurant is called Desert House. Lol. For those who are in Melbourne you should know.

The taste of the Wong Kam is rich with century egg, butter smell, and when you lick it, the taste of butter and the century egg will just stick on your tongue and slowly melt. With saltiness yet the ‘harumness‘ of the taste kam hiong leaves, you must just not miss this.

This is another one of my favourite dish. ‘Curry Fish Head’. One of their signature also but to much disappointment, this usually I ordered it was very fresh and the curry is nice. Tonight, everything does not goes well, the curry taste weird like put in the fridge overnight and reheat it, the fish head is not fresh whereby the meat is hard. It is suppose to be soft and easy to slice it. Definitely I do complain ‘kau kau‘ to the captain.

This restaurant worth to go, cuz they do have first class service, 3 table to 1 waiter/waitress. When ever your plate is dirty, they will directly change for you to a new plate. Five star service you can expect and the waiter and waitress there are definitely friendly. Suits my dad cuz he loves to talk alot to people.

If you had not a fresh seafood on that night, please do complain, as we do get RM40 off on our bill, whereby we just paid around RM96 after complain of the curry fish head. Cuz customer is their priority.

Location:

This restaurant is Located along Gurney whereby it is in the middle of that stretch.

If you coming from Gurney Hotel(left) go straight and after you see Pelita Mamak, slow down. It is nearby there


If you are coming from Gurney Plaza(right) you will have to past Silverton Condo, and bout 300Meter, it is just nearby there.
