Any of you love Penang food? I guess most of you do right and most of you would travel up North during long weekend for the awesome street food. Guess what! Now we have discover one new outlet that newly open in Kota Damansara recently that sell alot of best Penang street food under one roof, known as Penang One. Their first outlet is in Bandar Puteri, Puchong.

pg 1 (1)

Located in the heart of Kota Damansara where parking would be a big headache for you and this doesnt stop us from hunting it. Since our first visit, we have been going back as regular and I must say that the food is as good as where you can find in Penang. Definately not 100% but its at 80% similar which is good for us down in Klang Valley here.

pg 1 (2)

I am sure many of you still have yet discover fully where is the best food in Penang and the same goes to me. The owner have this big mission that wanted to provide folks in KL for good Penang food and therefore he himself as a Penangnite have work out a contract with all this famous hawker people to provide all the ingredients. All this being transport down to KL 2 days once. Therefore the taste is pretty much 80% the same as the famous hawker owner train all the staff themselves..

pg 1 (3)

The owner have marked down all the famous hawker stall location in the map and light history on the wall where he brought down here.

pg 1 (4)

Here you go on the list if you fancy any of the street food.

pg 1 (5)

Place here are pretty cozy and service here is pretty good~

pg 1 (6)

If you worry how they cook your meal and they have open concept kitchen for your viewing and those of you who loves the Tambun Biscuits & now they are available here too with the brand Him Heang which is one of my favourite brand. Now you need not queue that long as its while stock last daily.

pg 1 (7)

Lets see what we can have here and 8 of us are already very hungry.

pg 1 (8)

What is available in the menu is sufficient to stop our craving back in our hometown and we particularly ordered the whole menu, to try out on the taste.

pg 1 (9)

Homemade Otak Otak which is one of my favourite, no doubht that this taste exactly the same as one of my favourite stall. Steam to perfection that its soft on the outside and a huge slice of fish being inserted in the middle with fragrant leaves that absorb it very well. RM4.50 I have no complain in that.

pg 1 (10)

Those of you that miss Chee Cheong Fun, its all the way from Macalister Road. Prawn paste is good and just thick enough to coat around the chee cheong fun and although its not from my favourite Genting Kopitiam but this is as good as an alternative for me. @RM 3.90

pg 1 (16)

I certainly love Bak Chang – Special Dumpling @ RM 8.90 and alot people come here make a take away back to other country as they are being made fresh and air tight it in a pack of 8 if not mistaken. Then just put it into a boiling water for 5 minutes then you can eat it after that, with sticky rice and not too salty yet with generous amount of Ingredient.

pg 1 (21)

Another version of Bak Chang will be the white base and if not mistaken is the Teo Chew style as the filling is more towards peanuts. Not bad either as Ken loves this one and me prefer the traditional one.

pg 1 (17)

For Loh bak is hail all the way from Kheng Pin Kopitiam if not mistaken as I did saw a visual on that kopitiam on the wall. The Loh Sauce is as good as it is that is thicken, prawn crackers are fried to perfection. @RM 11.90

pg 1 (18)

The Asam Laksa is pretty well known in Lorong Selamat that I have not try before. When you talk about Lorong Selamat everyone’s thought would be Char Koey Teow! Nevertheless this is as good as it is, that cook with alot of mince fish meat and top with a few slices of fish as the top as we add on with additional RM1.50 . Soup is as good as the famous ones in Penang, sour enough and light spicy end with fish fragrant taste.. @ RM 8.50 

pg 1 (11)

This is another stall that I have not tried before in Penang which is Kampung Jawa Char Koey Teow and I ask my friend they say its very good and their business hours is only from 7am – 10am daily and have to wait at least 30 minutes – 45 minutes for your plate to be serve. Will go back and try the original one but before that, the Char Koey Teow in this outlet best most of the stalls in KL. Cook till with wok hei and the koey teow is slight dry to my linking and top with huge prawns @RM 9.50

pg 1 (12)

This is the Yam Cake @ RM 5.50

pg 1 (13)

Ahh, version of Curry Mee is hard to find in Klang Valley they need to be serve along with pork blood. Most of the curry mee here is in curry soup base. Penang version is, soup is fragrant with light pandan and mild santan taste the follow I add in one full scoop of curry to make it fiery red. Perfect as it is. @ RM 8.50

pg 1 (14)

I get to know that Klang Valley is not pretty well known for Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup but i have always love mine in this version. Sou is sweet and filled with duck meat, fish balls, pork balls and fish cake that all is home made except pork ball.

pg 1 (15)

If you love New World Park Ice Kacang then you gonna love this as it taste exactly the same. I prefer the Ice Kacang @ RM 6.50 more than the Cendul.

pg 1 (19)

This make no exception as well Tee Nya Kuih from there as well @ RM 3.50. Have to be serve chill then add in gula melaka to eat along. Soft as it is and gula melaka is not too sweet.

pg 1 (20)

Muar Chee @ RM 3.90, as the difference is the peanut base as its slightly more fine.

pg 1 (22)

Rojak @ RM 7.50 is not the best one from Penang to my own preference but some they love it as well.

pg 1 (23)

This is my very own special request on my chilhood snacks. A huge slice of Seng Kuang then top the rojak sauce on the top add on with peanuts after that.

pg 1 (24)

This is what happen to us when we found something good and hail all the way back from our hometown. We order so much that we inteded to give it a sharing at first and end up most of us having each plate each.

If you are craving for Penang food and lazy to drive all the way up north, here is one of the best place you can find in Klang Valley and no complain at all. It beats alot of stall out there, and had become our weekly affair,  some is daily. 😀

Price is pretty reasonable with the concept that the owner is trying to do and portion is average. Not too big nor too small or if you compare to KL serving portion its definitely slightly smaller. A highly Recommended place by me for Penang food.

For me, whenever I travel or I know I have a friend in that country, the first thing I always will ask them is what is the best food you would recommend me to eat? I would want to have famous local food, then go to your favourite place to eat. . . Ra-Men Bankara

One thing that I have in common with Goft is our taste bud pretty much the same and by far what ever she recommend the food so far all of us are very satisfied! When we were back from Pattaya we head to Chatuchak Market  where the most famous market in Bangkok, after that, then she recommend that we MUST try out this place which is very famous for ramen is known as Ra-Men Bankara which she rate the best ramen in Bangkok so far in her preference list.

bankara (1)

Bankara Ramen is also known as a famous franchise chain from Tokyo that very well known for its soup base that available in 4 different types.

bankara (2)

I love the whole concept of this outlet, as the ambiance gives you a tradition of Japanese Culture on how those what we seen in the Japanese movie.

bankara (3)

They also have private seating area more like a group of 6. . .. .

bankara (5)

Or a bit more open dining area . . .

bankara (4)

bankara (7)

bankara (8)

One of the unique thing is that this ramen shop provide you fresh garlic and the equipment for you to squash your garlic onto the noodle. . .

bankara (9)

and this is what I call a Ramen shop that have sesame, chili oil and 2 other sauce ready for you to add onto your bowl of ramen to bring it up to your own preference taste.

bankara (10)

Its a very simple menu that they have, then with the mini side bar there is those add on ingredients.

bankara (11)

All of us having headache on what to order and it seems like every thing looks good!

bankara (12)

Therefore we leave our dinner faith to Goft based on her recommendation.

Starting from tomorrow, muslims around the world will start fasting for one month and most of the restaurants are taking opportunity to offer best food at the right price. One of the place that we came across which is hidden at Ampang (seriously hidden) which is Intai-Intai Restaurant. Intai-Intai Restaurant Ramahdan Buka Puasa Buffet RM 48 nett. I was curious and ask the owner why this name was chosen, as he said, intai means peek therefore you need to take a peek to know where is the restaurant,the restaurant served Halal Thai food .. . .

Intai

Intai – intai offers customer to enjoy in their natural environment with sound of cricket, birds chirping yet a romantic ambiance during at night.

Intai (2)

Let’s intai (peek) what does the restaurant have to offer and the nature of the area and a quick tour of the restaurant.

Intai (3)

A pond was originally there.

During this festive month, many of the restaurant owners are doing buffet dinner (eat all you can) to offer to all the Muslims and non-muslims to dine and relax at such a great environment.

Intai (6)

If you do have a big family, Intai-Intai Restaurant do have a big area to cater up to 30-40 people for one section.

Intai (7)

Intai (8)

Tables are well decorated too.

Intai (9)

If you do go there early, you sure do can take pictures around  restaurant.

Intai (10)

With me and Ester being there early, decided to camwhore a little.

Intai (11)

Intai (12)

Intai-Intai actually offer Thai food (that I thought is malay restaurant) which is manage by 2 friendly brothers that host us with the wonderfull evening.

When comes to public holiday or long weekend, this is the place that we locals Penang will try to avoid. First we will stuck in the jam. Second if we do go, its hard to find a parking spot. Third, if manage to find a parking spot its you have to fight for tables with all the local tourist crowd.
Gurney Hawker center actually had emerge as one of the hottest tourist spot for local Penang Hawker Food. You can get all the Penang favourites, Laksa, Char Koey Teow, Prawn Mee, Rojak and many more all in one area. With its open air concept and crowded area is what the ambiance that most tourist is looking for.
Last weekend which is Christmas weekend I was back to hometown and went to hunt my missing ‘Ma Zhi which I pronounce as Muar Chee very much.

This is the Muar Chi stall which is located in the middle court area (middle location) next to the famous Char Koey Teow.

Busy preparing customer order and I have to wait mine.

Tadaaaa….my fav muar chi. Its warm and soft covered with smooth blended peanut sand crush top with fried onion is something I enjoy eating and I order it big just for myself RM2.
 
Next Rojak’ of course in my list and by being one of my favourite rojak stall this is one the chosen beside GP Soon stall did not open and the one my all time favourite Macallum Street that added dry shrimps and peanuts..

Love my rojak to be a lil spicy and that is how he stir and stir.

and again tAdaaa……. my Rojak without cucumber and added meng kuang. Yummm….RM 5.
Again, this weekend I am going back to Penang for my cousins wedding and of course this place will sure be a disaster place again that is going to be pack with local and foreign tourist. For tourist, this place is a must go place to eat and visit. You will enjoy the atmosphere there. You will not get the best food here but just a great spot to be.

For me, I would still rate Food Republic is the best food court so far. I have dined in this Teppanyaki stalls for quite a number of times. While you are waiting you are enjoying a mini food presentation by the chef. Their QC never drop, as I always go for the same thing which I still think that’s the best for my choice.

Proffesionally mincing and hantaming all the way.

About to be salivate soon


The Seafood which is a good choice also.

Jeng Jeng jengggg…here is my order ‘Spicy Lamb Teppanyaki’ RM15 if not mistaken. Love the taste of the lamb which is soft and juicy, the gravy that top on top is to add extra kick in it. The best part is to eat along with rice and with a combination of bean sprout and vegie gives you the satisfaction overall.

The best part is to eat along with rice with a company of bean sprout and vegie is just the tip of the icing.

We have seen the poster for quite sometime already. Then 6 of us decided to have lunch over there yesterday since its only RM 10. It includes a soup, main dish, fruits and a drink. Not many choice they have but then we are their 1st customer of the day.

The soup that they serve is like what I rate it ‘Ajinomoto’ Soup. It has lil cabbage, tomato pieces. Taste watery.
The best food among the rest would be this spaghetti. Taste like Olio spaghetti. Has strong aroma of tomato and lil of basil flavour. The garlic bread is nice, nicely baked.
The Rafflesia Chicken Curry, it taste not bad, the chicken is tender and curry is welled cook, can taste its not chicken curry powder type. Just that if it is serve hot instead warm, it would be nice. Wish they can reheat the food. hehe
This is Borneo Beef Stew, sounds nice, I have no idea how it taste cuz I cant take beef. They said its so so only.

When paying the bill, it makes us frustrated abit as it was written on the banner and the menu saying RM 10 nett, so everyone of us already got our RM 10 out and when the bill came it included 5% service tax. WTF..have to prepare some coins. If it stated RM 10 nett, they should already include the 5% tax. Why separate? Can’t just they round it up. Aiii…..
