Coffee places are not only booming in KL and it had spread their coffee fever wings till up north. Ipoh I have been one which is good yet have not blogged about it and lets head to Penang first instead since this whole week my posting is on Penang food –¬†Lighthouse Coffee .

I have seen my cousin, sister and friends instagraming on this place and yet I have still went to try till few weeks back. Manage to gather the usual gang and it was highly recommended by them too for coffee. Before coming over to this place, we were at Twelve Cups and it was rather dissapointing which I will blog about it soon to accomodate it then quickly finish the session there and head to this place Lighthouse Coffee – Specialty Coffee & Espresso Specialist which is one street away from Twelve Cups.

Fun fact is that Lighthouse Coffee started as early as 2006, before the boom of coffee (which is now).

Have gotten to known that this outlet had gain its popularity within months after its opening and many backpackers travelers do stop by to get a cuppa in early morning or tea time session that operating in Heritage zone would be one of their advatage. Its not a huge cafe but comfort enough to store a few of us. Alot of coffee drinkers here are quite friendly as we do share table.

Menu are pretty straight forward with nothing fancy except with flavoured cofffee, with bites available and some cakes.

Lighthouse to represent their brand.

with sticky note board on the go for you, feel free to paste any comment, quote on the wall and its rather interesting to read all those comment on the board. Check it out yourself.

lighthouse (7)

Some of us are quite hungry and decided to order some of their food Tuna Nicoise Panini @ RM 11.90. simple yet done to perfection with wholemeal bread those to crisp and fillings in it with cheeze and tuna are blend well to accomdate the taste with home dressing to pair along.

lighthouse (8)

Bagel with Double Cheeze & Egg @ RM 10.90 gave me a suprise as I never put expectation in it. Would be a great choice for breakfast.

lighthouse (10)

The best that kept us eating is this Baby Asparagus Aglio Alio @ RM 15.90 turns out to be good. Speghetti is al dante, and flavor is mild enough to get out the taste of pepper, tomato and hint of black pepper after taste. Ended up order another plate.

lighthouse (9)

Crepes is not up to my expectation as we can easily hunts better ones out there. RM 10 if I am not mistaken.

lighthouse (11)

For coffee the rest of us had Latte, Chocolate and Ice chocolate. Not only that as we were impress with the coffee art they had drawn with flower, which is the common ones. With below .. .

lighthouse (12)

First time seeing a cafe draw a kitty. Then this mug had turn to become super star for instant moment. Among a few other coffee outlets available in the area, Lighthouse Coffee certainly the winner in terms of coffee taste and the bean they use is Arabica beans. Taste milder.

Parking around the area is quite limited and based on your luck. ūüôā

Latte @ RM 9 and Chocolate @ RM 10.90

Sometimes its a tough decision when the question of where to eat pops up. Just at times do not know what to eat and decided to make a round at my neigbourhood area to hunt for food. Then remember that there are 2 huge food court available around the area of Kepong. This round trying out Kepong Food Court.

kepong kopitiam (1)

kepong kopitiam (3)

No difference like any other food court in Taman Megah or SS15, its another huge food court and I am lost again without knowing what to eat and even walk 3 rounds and still cant make up my decisions, find that this Kepong Food Court is not really complete.

kepong kopitiam (4)

 

kepong kopitiam (2)

 Then ended up ordering Pork Burger that sells in food court.

kepong kopitiam (5)

 and by looking at the uncle serve his food out of his stall, certainly capture my attention that sells authentic Taiwanese Food.

kepong kopitiam (6)

Choices are pretty decent as like  Taiwanese food all the main selection are there and decided to settle for this stall too.

kepong kopitiam (7)

Ordered the Sour and Spicy Soup Noodle and turns out to be very good. Its quite sour and the spicy taste will hit you after a while and if gives us the challenge to continue eating. Sprinkle with some chili flakes to make it more spicy. The set back is only the noodle is slightly overcook. Nevertheless still a great bowl of noodle for RM5.

kepong kopitiam (12)

After finishing my noodle and looking at the uncle busy serving this Braised Pork rice, it look and smells good. Then decided to give it a go. Love the braised pork sauce was added in and shredded pork slices are soft and flavourful along with rice is just another perfect combination.

kepong kopitiam (14)

Then I was given complimentary Chicken Feet as the uncle see us eat till so happy on his food. Its soft and love the light herbal taste on it too. I must say that for a Taiwanese Food in Kopitiam and at the price, this is surely a highly recommended stall.

kepong kopitiam (8)

 My friend ordered Pork Noodle which is totally out. Don bother.

kepong kopitiam (9)

and here comes my Pork Burger from Big Boys Burger. Ordered it with extra cheeze and bacon.

kepong kopitiam (10)

kepong kopitiam (11)

No doubht for the pork patty is well prepared, season and quite solid. The taste is good for such a medium size patty that did not overcook with cheeze that just melted on the top that makes it perfect along with light saltiness from bacon. Overall its a nice burger pricing at RM 11.90. Find is slightly overprice but nevertheless a good try  . .

If you do come here, Taiwanese Stall is the most highly recommended and do let the uncle know that not to overcook the noodle.

Food can sometimes be very different if we are adventurous enough yet at times it can be a dissapointment. Recent discovery on something new in Bukit Damansara is this outlet called Maliqa Mediterranean Cuisine that serve HALAL Mediterranean food, and I must say its actually a hidden gem in the area. Open its door not too long ago already have build up well with many return customer with its reasonable pricing and food quality.

maliqa (1)

 Also further understand that Maliqa in term of Arabic origin used in Persia it means a title of Queen Consort.

maliqa (3)

From the meaning Queen and the interior designer which is one of the owner himself that design the whole place to assemble the look and feel of Persian.

For welcoming drink, we were greeted with their Honey Yogurt drink. This is one of the drink that you shall not miss, smooth and not too sweet yet I do not mind to have the whole jug by myself.

maliqa (14)

maliqa (8)

Something new to me is this Pirincli Yoghurt & Corbasi. It looks healthy for morning breakfast as I was on diet for that week and surely this would be a great soup for me. Something simple and the taste is a bit salty papperish end.

maliqa (10)

Another soup came by is Spicy Seafood Soup

maliqa (9)

 Fried Mushroom for appetizer to much on before the mains are coming over.

maliqa (11)

maliqa (12)

Lamb Shank were good as the lamb were braised till soft and aromatic with their house special gravy and risotto is cook to my likings. Lamb taste is pretty strong and those of you who do not really take lamb then this is not encourage.

maliqa (13)

Maliqa House Steak werent bad is just that on that night I find it abit over cook for the steak. Gravy is good which is light that did not overpower the taste of the steak. Its one of their signature dish for Maliqa.

 Risotto

One of their dish that must not miss is Turkish Moussaka.

[Close Down]

Over the weekend, I was attending a Photography workshop at Bankers Club, and of course there are breaks in between. Then hit down to dinner and walk pass thru Sungai Wang to head to Lot 10 Hutong, I came across this Polo Bun Shop by the name Polo Zai Bakery Cafe. I love polo bun alot and looking at the texture of the bread surely looks tempting and decided to buy 1 after dinner to test the quality.

Guess what? After buy 1 on the first night, we ended up ta pau and buy for the next 2 days of the workshop, including last night. ūüėÄ

polozai (1)

Some fact of Polo bun or ŤŹ†ŤźĚŚĆÖ is the Hong Kong style of bun and very popular in Hong Kong. The word ŤŹ†ŤźĚ is also a Hong Kong word meaning ‘pineapple’ where the skin of the bun looks like a pineapple.

Now at Polozai Bakery Cafe, they have mastered and specialized in baking these Polo bun with 16 choices of creative and delicious flavors to choose from. I believe they are freshly baked daily to get the freshness and quality of it. You will be tempted by the smell of it although its not so strong as compare to Roti Boy.

polozai (2)

I have tried  a few flavours over the past few days. One of the original which is Polo Butter is always the classic. With the cripsy crumbs on the top and butter spread at the base/ bottom @ RM 2.80.

polozai (3)

Next I try their Custard Polo Bun, crust is the same as the filling is custard. Find that the filling of custard is not well spread out as I bite half of the bun still there is no sign of the custard and only realize is only 1/4 of the bun, which is one of the corner.

polozai (4)

To be adventourous, we bought alot a few flavours such as Durians. Durian turns out to be pretty good and generous with the ingredient, with the durian flesh sticking out like that, can see that they are using fresh durian to insert as the filling.

Another 2 we tapau is Cheeze and Polo Ham Sausage.

The range of their bun are from RM2.80 – RM 5 depends on which selection you are aftering. For first timer, I would definately recommend their classic signature which is the Polo Bun, follow by Custard or durian.

Overall, the crust of the top is not bad, not too sweet and bun is pretty soft. Can say that one of the best Polo Bun that I came across, in overall taste and if they are serve pippin hot or warm, it would surely be one of the top seller in Sungwai Wang.

Why not check out what’s happening to the chase or invasion that coming in after all, as the new video below is revealing who is behind all this along with mother spaceship and drones going after one particular object, watch the video without blink for the next 2 minutes.

 

 

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.

Sometimes, hunting nice food is when you look at some pictures that you like and you go for it. So often that I hear this modern Thai dining serve pretty good food is Fa Ying by Rama V. I get to know this place when I saw my friend insta it while they are enjoying their meal there. Then not long after that see them Insta again. Then it got me very curious about the place and food and its a recommended place by them.

Since my friends birthday is around the corner, therefore I suggest this nice restaurant for birthday dinner.

fa ying (1)

Get to know that¬†t Fa Ying means ‚Äúprincess‚ÄĚ in Thai and by that you would nod your head once you know that it is connected. That is how I feel I am connected when I first saw this place. ūüėÄ

fa ying (2)

At night this whole restaurant look pretty comfy with nice lighting and set up with bar in the middle of Fa Ying by Rama V.

fa ying (3)

Sitting outside at night without wind can be like in sauna . . .

fa ying (7)

Starting to love this place when I they have happy hour buy 1 free 1 all day long. AT times before movie will drop by for a drink.

fa ying (8)

Offering in this Fa Ying by Rama V seems pretty good as I have asked my friend the list what is the must have item and she recommended a few.

fa ying (9)

This is something new to me as Watermelon salad is something light and simple to start off with, sweet and burst with watermelon juices, light mint taste and goat cheeze is added to make the taste more kick. @ RM 12

fa ying (10)

In salad range, I was asked not to miss out their signature Pamelo Salad with Prawns @ RM16, mint leaves are added along, light herbs taste in between and the pamelo is sweet sour base that pair with the ingredient very well.

fa ying (11)

Thai Fish Cake @ RM 12

fa ying (12)

It will never be complete if you step into a Thai restaurant without ordering Tom Yum, the version here is rather mild and serve along with 2 slices of toast bread. Bread is good but to pair with thai soup its a bit weird.

fa ying (13)

Pinapple Fried Rice is pretty good as fried to fragrance and pineapple taste did not overpower the rice.

fa ying (14)

All ala carte order comes with this bowl of thai fragrant rice and a bow of thai salad. Thai salad is popular among the rest as the sour base and spicy end makes it nice.

fa ying (15)

Follow by our mild spicy Curry Duck. Duck meat is not too hard yet cook to perfection that the gravy is slightly thicker and coated well on the duck meat. Love this dish.

fa ying (16)

Phad Thai is like one of my favourite dish. Will try to order if available or not to full. Thin noodles here are pretty good, and did not fried too dry, slightly  moist to my liking. Serve along with peanuts and bean sprout to stir all together along.

fa ying (17)

Prawn Speghetti

fa ying (18)

fa ying (19)

Clearly Roasted duck sandwich @ RM20++

fa ying (20)

Is the clear winner for the night as it was gone within seconds. Smack in between 2 slices of toast Ciabatta  with combination of duck, vegetables and sauces is just nice. Fa Ying by Rama V

fa ying (22)

Here is the biday girl and her cakes.

fa ying (23)

Of course my usual order placement of cakes will be from Fatboybakes.blogspot.com

fa ying (24)

Lastly, for the celebration and we were told their signature cocktail that we shall not miss is Marquessa @ RM100, uniquely served in a huge fishbowl as the mixture of the drink  filled with dragon fruit, cucumber, burnt orange peel, Absolute Blue, white wine, soda and 7-Up. Nice to drink and can at least be share with 5-6 friends.  If you are a cocktail lover, then this is one of the item you shall not miss..

For a pork free restaurant to come out with this flavorful dish, I must say I am impress. Total bill for the night came out RM650. Not bad for a recommendation.
