Meet the Penang legendary street burger at Hillside Uncle’s Burger located at Tanjung Tokong, Penang. This is one of a burger stall I have been eating since high school till now. One of a rare gem in Penang street food that you will find the only Chinese burger Stall in the island (correct me if I am wrong). Or Ramlee burger, Chinese version.

Hillside Uncle's Burger

The old couple have been running the stall easily more than 20 years.  Of course due to inflation price certainly increase and during this after pandemic period, the business is still brisk like the usual. Been ages since last had and I think easily the last I had was 15 years ago. Now, training his son up to take up spot. Certainly there is taste diff but practice makes perfect.

Be prepare to queue for 45 mins to 90 mins for a pippin hot burger. Usually I will buy to eat at the food court or eat at the playground. Then walk over to the Chinese shop next to 7-11 to grab a can of beer. Certainly Satisfying.

Of course I will be ordering, Beef, Cheese and Egg @ RM 9

Last round, I miss certain kind of food, one certainly which is street food and one in particular. As Penang is famous for Laksa and I am hunting this, motocycle laksa that sell by Indian which I used to eat it very often when I was in high school. Finally found one similiar which located at the side entrance of Prima Tanjung, park right next to this Soya Bean van located this 2 wheeler laksa. I would call it fusion laksa.

penang (1)

Smells good as usual on the soup and one unique thing about this stall is that, the uncle sell variety of items, such as popiah, karipuff, kuih and the usual laksa that the noodle is at another stack.

When back to Penang usually, I always wanted to go back street food but my friend always end up bring me to this kind of places. When they told me to dinner is at Island Plaza, I thought they must be joking till they said I must try this Japanese Restaurant – Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine. Who can really resist Japanese Food?

Well, Island Plaza used to be one of the hottest spot to hang out 15 years ago before Gurney Plaza was constructed. One of a major place that most teenagers to hang out at that time, with many prime brands hosted there. Now they have gone major upgrading work to make it another look and feel.

Edo Ichi (1)

I got to know thru a friend that Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine is actually under the group which Azuma Japanese Restaurant is also one of theirs. When I arrive, I am surprise by huge crowd and have to wait for 20 minutes for a table. Seldom will see this situation happen in Penang and its located inside Island Plaza, that makes me curious.

Edo Ichi (2)

They are operating 2-3 lots that make the dining area spacious with a few sections including sushi bar and close up area.

Edo Ichi (3)

Edo Ichi (4)

Price here are pretty decent and I compare to another of my favourite brand Sushi Tei in Gurney, its pretty much similiar

Edo Ichi (5)

 Then we ordered quite a lot for 5 pax and started of with Salmon Sashimi. Finely cut and its very fresh! @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (6)

For rolls, I would say that they have created their own signature style compare to others and tried both their Una Cheeze Maki @ RM 35 & Shake Mayo Mentai Roll @ RM 30. Both are equally good as ingredient are pretty generous and I like how the cheeze flavour makes it more unique with their own light sauce.

Edo Ichi (7)

I order something new that my friend have yet try is Tenderloin Cappaccio @ RM 35. It was all gone after I snap the picture. Thin slice beef that cut to perfection, with shoyu sauce and mayonnaise with the fine cut that makes it nearly melt in mouth. Order another plate again.

Edo Ichi (8)

Volcano Roll is not the best I have come across as I have tried better ones before. Overall, the cheese and mixture of ingredient in it is quite not bad for a Penang version. @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (9)

 This is the fellow who always wanted to maciam maciam places!

Edo Ichi (11)

Sukiyaki is pretty good too with the soup base quite salty as what I have learn, flavourfull that serve along with fine cut beef slice. It will be perfect during rainy season.  @ RM 30

Edo Ichi (12)

Yaki Gyuza @ RM 8 both item is nice to go along as Gyuza here won many places that I have tried, by pan fried the base perfectly to golden brown and ingredient in it a bit solid.

Edo Ichi (13)

Both Fried rice are equally good and I prefer more Scallop Fried Rice @ RM 12. Very fragrant with garlic with wok hei. We add extra garlic into our rice to make it extra kick. Seafood Fried Rice @ RM 12

Edo Ichi (14)

 

Edo Ichi (15)

By the time comes to this Avocado Guratan  we are all very stuff. Ended up I finish all this. If you love cheeze potato and some seafood this would be ideal for [email protected] RM 18

Edo Ichi (16)

Kimuchi Ramen turns out to be pretty good, mild spicy and sour end with thin slice of pork in it. Ramen is slightly overcook and if they can make it al dante then would be perfect bowl of noodle. @ RM 18

At the end of the meal, it was a very satisfying dinner with great food. If you are looking for some nice Japanese Cuisine, this outlet certainly would be one of my recommendation.

I often fancy for nice cakes, or in another word I am a dessert lover. Few years ago, I got expose to this brand as they operate in other states, then my sister found out that there is a home baker in Penang that sell very nice mille crepe as they started out providing by online ordering of freshly hand-made and hand-layered mille crepes.. Since it was my dad’s birthday, and decided to place an order. Since then it had become our yearly order for any of my family member birthday celebration.

There are another 2 more outlets are well known to many people in KL, one which is Food Foundry that located in Section 17 and latest addition is Nadeje from Melaka that spread its wings to KL.

humble (1)

Good news is that now they have spread their wings to F&B outlet as we no longer need to order the whole cake to enjoy the flavor of it and now we can just pop by to one of their latest outlet in Penang which is located in Straits Quay, that is in front of Papa Rich.

humble (2)

When I told my friend lets head here for dessert, they instantly agree as we do not know what to do for the next 2 hours. So camp here and kill some time.

humble (3)

There are about 8 flavours available

humble (4)

 

humble (6)

 As my best friend say, dessert in chocolate will never ever go wrong. @ RM 9.90

humble (7)

French Vanilla (Original) @ RM 9.90

humble (8)

 then try out one of a unique flavour, blueberry peanut mille crepe. Peanut lover would love this as the taste of peanut is slightly strong yet did not overpower the taste of blueberry and vanilla taste of it. @ RM 9.90

humble (9)

Over a few Mille Crepe I have tasted so far, I prefer Humble Beginning more as the taste is less sweet, not too condense and most of the layer crepe or well balance and moist. This is one of my favourite mille crepe shop. Recommended~

Well, now they just open their latest outlet in Bangsar as you can head there to try it out.. .
