Tee Chang You Tiau Wang Then my answer is check my blog. . .Lol, this round is pretty different that I ask my Penang friend what is  nice and unique place worth to pay a visit and remembering CKlam did blog about this giant 14inch You Tiau or known as Chinese Crullers at Paya Terubong.

[No longer in Operations] – since 2012

In my list, when I do not know where to hunt for food, there are 2 places which is my favourite hunting ground which is Kuchai Lama and Kota Damansara but after recently I went again to Kota Damansara and make a few rounds around that area before heading to the newly build mall Sunway Giza, I could not denied that now I would rate that place as food heaven. Can you imagine that, there are more than 50 restaurants and hawker center just around that area?

If you are bored with normal food, then head to Cravings at Sunway Giza that offers variety of unique food. Be prepared to be amazed by some of their signatures

I have seen many bloggers blog about a restaurant in this place, and I we went to this new restaurant which is only 2 weeks old at this mall, Cravings.

I love their design how the make their exterior look with white wooden plants on the wall that makes them stand out compare to the rest.

The lower ground interior is a simply modern café style design that makes it cozy for a simple gathering or dines in.

You can choose to walk up to the upper level by the spiral stairs or another entrance at the side.

On the second floor is lit with blue lights to create ambiance for drinking session as they have a bar in that area.

I would say, they have a unique menu with a reasonable price.

Behold for the night to kick off with one of their signature, that caught our eyes big wide open with their ’12” Cravings Monster Burger’ @ RM25.90

If you tell me, I have always eat a foot long or consider 12” Subway sandwich but I have never eat a 12” burger before. We were all like, woahhh…. And we just cant wait to get our knife and fork to dissect it as the aroma of the Pattie smells good, it is serve with 4 different patties (all home made by the chef) – Vegetarian, Lamb, Chicken, Beef, bacon and cheese.

This is the look of Ken as he is raping the burger with his eyes.

How we eat it, simple as we often play Jengga, you make the whole thing collapse then start eating it.

In Penang, most people consider it a food heaven that cannot be deny, that one of the hottest place to dine at night and you love to rob a dinner table for your family and friends, which is a very normal things to do in a coffee shop, then you must not miss one of the famous place to dine Bee Hooi Restaurant. A place where you can find simple hawker food enough to kill off your hunger and craving that filled with a few famous stall, with cheap food yet good.

Bee Hooi

If you come here during public holiday or weekends, you might have to be a efficient robber.

A stall that I would not miss is this Frankie’s Pizza with in the standard menu, ‘Hawaiian Chicken, Tuna, Seafood, Mutton, and a few more. ‘

Bee Hooi (3)

One of my personal favourite in the stall is ‘Hawaiian Chicken or Mutton with extra cheeze topping’ yum~

Bee Hooi (4)

With my ‘Mutton Pizza with extra Cheeze’ RM 7-8 (Small) is well toast and ready to be eaten. Please do not compare the one with the restaurant as this is the kopitiam version as the crust might be thicker and hard a bit but after toast it well with well marinated ingrediant, its one of the best to get. Nice melted cheeze, with soft mince mutton with onion in it. Recommended~

For oyster’s lover, ‘Fried Oyster’ is one of the dish you would not want to miss. I find the fried oyster here is very classic, that fried it in soft layer with egg, mashed it a bit and top it up with Oyster. Its very aromatic and dipping it with the Chili, its just perfect.

Bee Hooi (9)

My plate of ‘Fried Oyster’ RM 6 as the price ranges from RM6-RM15

Bee Hooi (10)

One of the famous hawker in the kopitiam is this ‘Char Koey Teow’ stall run by the whole family, as the mom prepare the ingredient, the dad fried on it and the son deliver. You can be expected to wait from easily 10minutes to 30 minutes depending on the crowd as this mini hawker stall did feature in a few newspaper as seen in front of the stall which I forgot to snap it.

Bee Hooi (11)

One of the good ‘Char Koey Teow’ to make it delicious is by using charcoal to fried along and plate by plate to ensure the koey teow and the ingredient are fried evenly. To eat the best ‘Char Koey Teow’ is always must go along with ‘Duck Egg’ if the place do offer and fried with charcoal.

Bee Hooi (12)

My simple plate of ‘Char Koey Teow with Duck Egg’ RM4 which is my cheaper and nicer compare to the famous one Lorong Selamat. I do have big prawns too on my plate with well fried with wok hei, and dry with each koey teow is not that sticky and aroma of duck egg is well blend.

Bee Hooi (13)

Then my mom ate ‘Koey Teow Theng’ RM3 which is a simple dish which is definately taste alot better than most of the KL stalls.

Besides this mention above, there are other famous stall too, like the ‘Loh Mee’ and a few other stalls. . . With no complain that this kopitiam serve quite a good range of food, worth recommending.
