I guess I did pay a visit to quite a number of restaurants in Straits Quay that some I do not even bother to blog about it. Till, we do not know what to eat and seeing the number of crowds in this shop Blue Reef Fish & Chips, we decided to put our steps in to give it a try.

Blue Reef (1)

 

Blue Reef (2)

A place which offer cozy dining place and nice concept too . .

Blue Reef (3)

Well, you can see anyone seating out here cuz the weather is killing us unless is at night.

Blue Reef (4)

Price list. .  most of the mains are offered fried.

Blue Reef (5)

Lets start eating ..

Blue Reef (6)

S Galore Mackerel Beer Batter @ RM 40

Blue Reef (7)

In our plates we have Spanish Mackerel

Blue Reef (8)

Squid, prawns  and lots of frieds.

Both of us eat till very ‘jelak’ cause too much fried stuff and we even make a take away for the remainings and she cant event finish too. I guess a plate like that can be shared by 3 people. We find it a bit too dry at the end.

Just a plain simple fish & chip place and for the price that we are paying in total of RM55 with 2 drinks I think we can hunt for better food in return around the area.

Along the highway as I always travel back and forth, by trailing away Nibong Tebal small town sign board along the highway as it was last round that I was heading back to KL by following my best friends Ian, both he and his friend decided to bring me to dine in this small little town. They told me that you will be surprise what they can offer for that kind of cheap price. Cheap as in SERIOUSLY CHEAP. *doubting.

pork knuc (1)

Nibong Tebal is actually located at Penang, Mainland and I rate Swee Garden Seafood restaurant is a hidden gem in the town as a place that famous among local that is about 10 minutes drive away from the toll exit to reach here. Which is pretty easy to drive here by recognizing a huge flyover to make  a turn.

Was told by both of them have to reach here freaking early to avoid massive huge dinner crowd that many dining tables will spill out to the road side as we reach around 5.30pm to have a very early dinner before heading back to KL.

pork knuc (2)

AS early as 5.30pm there are quite a number of families are already dining here.

pork knuc (3)

Fried Lala with Ginger is something that is fried simple yet infuse with chinese wine in it make it very addictive with hint of some spicy from ginger and fine slice chili.

pork knuc (4)

Asam Prawns is a big fat juicy prawns that well prepared and marinated. I whack nearly half of it.

pork knuc (5)

Simple fried veggie nothing much to shout about.

pork knuc (6)

Signature Crispy Fried Pork Knuckle 

pork knuc (7)

A portion that most of the table would order or I would say must not miss. Deep fried to perfection that the skin is very crispy, yet the meat in it is still soft and the amount of fats in between is just nice. This is not German Pork Knuckle therefore they do not serve any gravy along as this is Chinese Cross over cuisine. Just serve along with pickled shallots and tomato slices. – Recommended!

Total Damage we had for the dinner is about RM 75 for 3 pax which I would rate it reasonable cheap and not as ‘very’ cheap as my friend mention since its located in this small town, as also since we have a huge chunk of Pork Knuckle and some seafood along its decently price in this small town.

Surely I would not mind to recommended for you to drive all the way here to try it out for travelers also.

I have walk pass this shop many times and I just do not have the heart to go in to try out, as the interior and the outlook of the outlet definitely look nice, yet I guess it just doesnt attract me, not till recently my friend plan to treat me eat Fruuze Frozen yogurt as its one of her favourite so well, free yogurt why not? 😀

fruuze (1)

fruuze (2)

A place that usually filled with families. . .

There are step 1  which to choose the size of the cup, step 2 to choose types of yogurt and step 3 to choose your toppings which is very similar to Tutti Frutti I had years back. (click here)

fruuze (10)

I tried original filled with Longan, almond flakes and mango cubes. . [email protected] RM 13.50 medium size

fruuze (11)

My friend she had chocolate flavour, cornflakes and chocolate cubes. [email protected] RM 9, small

Overall, this would not be my preference as on the downside, find it quite expensive as the same as all other yogurt, as Penang doesnt have much choice in Yogurt still J.Co yogurt stand out more in terms of taste and pricing followed by Tutti Frutti.

In KL my all time favourite yogurt is MooCow which I had alot of times and didnt blog yet, I guess shall blog about them next round.

One of the reason that Penang had attracted alot of tourist its because one of its culture that preserved its heritage area, and since then, alot of cafe’s came out with their very own unique classic place that offers customers heritage feel of it. One of the famous street in Penang that have all this ambiance, that you can find it in Muntri Street, Moontree 47 is located along the street.

This is one of the new place that I often see my friend check in until I came here myself and I am surprise to see this new place which is a new replacement for Sunset Bistro which is one of my favorite hang out place if comes to beach area  known as Bora Bora Beach.

Now with the new build up to replace Sunset Bistro which been told by my friend it got arson down and surely its much better compare to the old place. Even on weekdays it had manage to make this place lively with local and tourist flock this place with friends and family.

As you would want to sit outdoor, there are more tables and you have to walk along a bit of sandy area then chose your spot. Can be hidden behind some bushes and plants, next to the stage or right out facing the sea.

I have been hearing this famous Nasi Kandar Beratur for very long time, that every time that I passby that area I will tell myself must go eat but always ended up in Nasi Kandar Line Clear which is my all time favourite.

On that night that I arrive back in Penang, we directly head to this place as I was inform that they have the most authentic curry that use all spices available to cook on it. The difference compare to the rest of the Nasi Kandar is the spices aroma in the curry, not really spicy but aromatic.

beratur (1)

With the name itself Beratur (Lining Up) you sure do have to wait for your turn to arrive, as on that night we were lucky that the line took us mere 5 minutes, sometimes you have to wait as long as 30 minutes to an hour.

beratur (2)

beratur (3)

Of course they sure do have some of their dishes would be their signature order,

beratur (4)

beratur (5)

Not many places now that still use coconut shell to take the rice.

beratur (6)

After putting the white rice on the plate its your turn to hunt down your favourite dish that is available on the couter.

beratur (7)

beratur (8)

Of course I love my plate of Nasi Kandar to be very Banjir (flood with gravy) especially a mixture of all the available gravy on the counter. This plate order is with Beef slices, Ladies finger and Telur Bawang. The best of all is the beef which is very soft and the gravy that soak along in it is kick ahh!

beratur (9)

My plate is beef slice, telur bawang and ayam madu. Total damage for both plate is less than RM12 and if it is in KL definately more than that.

Its still worth a try as its famous for its authentic spices used in to cook the curry, but I still prefer Line Clear. After this hunt, I have heard another upcoming best nasi Kandar some where in Jelutong. Will be my next destination!

Plz Note: Different people always got different pricing in this stall, especially tourist might get rip off, so always ask for pricing before you take any!!
