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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 .. .

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. 🙂

Latte @ RM 9 and Chocolate @ RM 10.90

It is very funny that how year 2011 suddenly boom with so many international franchise bubble milk tea in Malaysia, especially those brand from Taiwan. First start off with Cha Time, Gong Cha and a few more brands from Taiwan, then come Ochado from Japan and now Dong Cha is from Hong Kong.

Dong Cha (1)

Whenever I drop by IOI Mall Puchong, I tend to try out this brand more and found that they have some good drinks. Dong Cha is located at the Ground Floor of new wing in IOI Mall, nearby the escalator.

Dong Cha (2)

Dong cha have something different compare to other bubble milk tea outlet is that they have this little snacks, Wagashi that is made fresh right in front of your eyes that is a assorted hot cakes filled with different fillings in it.

Dong Cha (3)

I read in the net, saying that Wagashi is from Taiwan that makes a little combination of Taiwan and Hong Kong in Dong Cha.

Dong Cha (4)

They have a few flavors and size to chose as in this picture is the Jumbo Wagashi

Dong Cha (5)

  • Jumbo Cream
  • Belgium Chocolate With Cream
  • Italy Coffee With Cream
  • Matcha Red Bean With Cream
  • Peanut Cream With Mochi

Dong Cha (7)

quite a huge range of drinks to choose from in Dong Cha.

Dong Cha (8)

Compare with other outlet, I like their Moose Tea which the tea flavor is more thick, the creamy filling that mix along does not make it too milky and its just nice. If you are saying Moose tea version, Dong Cha stood up.

Dong Cha (6)

Price is very reasonable and for around RM5 you can get a big cup already.

Dong Cha (9)

Then Kelly have never tried this brand of Milk Tea before, she decided to give it a try. End Result, my fav brand still the best in Original Pearl Milk Tea.

Dong Cha (10)

Kelly and her drink

Dong Cha (11)

And as we were very full from our dinner, we opted to try the Wagashi in smaller version.

Dong Cha (12)

No doubt that the aroma of the Wagashi is very very nice in smell, texture is like cake and do not eat it while it hot, just let it cool down a bit and it will taste much better. We tried, their Original Flavour, Chocolate and Peanut. I like Peanut and Original flavor more.

Well, its another bubble milk tea brand for you to try out.

I am a big fan of ‘tong yuen’ and few months back I have read on CKlam blog that she blog about this newly open shop and sure caught my attention. As every year comes to a Chinese traditional event my mom and my sister will sit down and roll roll roll to make it become round and cook it later and will always tell me by eating this means you are another year older.

A shop which is located around town area and with a lot of famous food around could be very easy to locate this shop.


In the menu, variety of ‘Tong Yuen’ available to suit with a few soup base.

A very classic chinese street decoration but in a modern shop concept would create you the ambiance to eat the desert.

It comes with a few sizes as the smaller version is the plain and the one with the big balls contain fillings in it. A very smooth round balls waiting to be makan and the sweeten soup base is just the right flavor. This would be the ‘Lotus Seed Tang Huen’ RM3.90

When I see the filling is ‘Durian Tong Yuen’ RM3.90. I instantly order it, and if they use the filling of durian puree would taste much better on my thoughts instead of using durian kuih.
Then the lady recommends us to order this their dry version as one of the unique item on the shop. Added another item in our list. When it got serve, we never thought that it would be serve this way. A very new presentable way to serve tong yuen. ‘Lotus Seed Tau Sar’ RM3.20

Its Ying yeong, with two different flavor. I like it a lot with the soft skin texture and the solid soft filling inside is just as good as what it looks.

It was the weekend that most of us are anticipating for, a gathering after Chinese New Year for all of us to get to know the rest of the people in the organisation. Booked the entire place just for us only. First time dine in Westine Hotel Buffett style.
The restaurant had a nice interior whereby you get to choose in the center area which is a bit more relaxing, with sofa’s around the area, and a high ceiling till you can see what is on the 3rd floor hallway. We ended up picking on the back area, brighter and a place looks like you can just sit and chat there whole night.

This is one of the fish that had been served, do not know what fish but it is very fresh as the meat is very soft.

This is one of the salad bar. Women’s favourite.

Salad Bar 2.

This is one of the Shasimi bar.
This is the Lok Lok bar.
The sandwich bar. Something like Subway, you can just choose the kind of bread you want, toasted or not to be toasted and the toppings and fillings that you want. As my all time favourite, the croissant.
One of my favourite area for the whole night, the desert bar. Variety of cakes, pudding, jelly’s and chocolates. Can’t really recall back which is nice and not nice, as I tried every bits of it and shared with the rest.
The Ice Cream Bar. Looks tempting but the Ice Cream does not taste good. Nice to see, not nice to eat.
The topping area for your ice cream. With Blue berry and strawberry syrup, peanuts flakes and cherry.
It has been ages since I last saw ‘Tabung Uji‘ uniquely they filled it with dark and white chocolates.
A wall of chocolates for you to hunt, the chocolate is just so nice, yet some are juicy as it was filled with some sauce, you bite, it melt and spurt in your mouth. The best chocolate corner.
A chocolate fondue tower, as I called it Desert Lok Lok style. I was just standing there pok the fruits, marshmallow, and short bread, dip and bite. So satisfying until my friend came, WOI!!! you geli la… you dip like that other ppl no need to eat liau la~ lol. I dip only once, and the whole thing is in my mouth, I always use new stick. Hygiene ma~
Wohooo~ the best corner of all, free flow of beer all night long.
This is what I took for myself,
The left is the pumpkin and tomyam gong soup. The pumpkin tasted so so only as it was quite thick in the taste. The tomyam gong is disappointing, taste more like clear soup.
My personal Lok Lok corner. Every stick of what is inside that area except beef.
This is the main course food. The food is so so only.
The best of all, as I always take sandwich with my own personal custom made filled with turkey ham, tuna, egg, cabbage,tomato, cucumber, mayo and mustard sauce.
The little Asian delight that they have, Kaya Kuih(damm nice), chocolate popiah, apple struddle and cupcake(not nice)
wahhahha..This is my personal customise pancake. 1 sided filled with chocolate and the other side with Blueberry sauce and the other side with strawberry sauce. Very very nice.
This is what I mean by my lok lok style, standing there and dip.Wakkakaka. as what we did on the road side except cannot stand with kaki kang kang and head front like giraffe which we scared that the sauce will drop on our clothing.
Well, it was a very interesting night, as get to know more people within the organisation.
