I did ask him before, or not only me, why come back to Malaysia since you are doing so well in overseas. He answered, because he is a Malaysians and still his home ground. He is proud to bring back this concept. Chef Yama specialties are sauces. He always mention would love the diners to enjoy same ingredient but different taste.

Food in here is great and it will give you another dimension of what to taste in sushi. The only thing is you might love it or don so like it as in the chef special menu, its much drench with sauce, there is where the sushi/sashimi boat come in handy, to tone down the taste. My preference for those are:

Waikiki Roll, Volcano Roll, Art of Maki to kick start off with . .
If you are more adventure with your sushi, then I would highly recommend this place to try out.

A place that I used to come often when I was a kid with my grandparents, that I cant event remember when was the last time I been here. At this field at the end of the corner, there is one place that host many food. One of the reason, most people are here during lunch to tea time is for Lok Lok. This food court that have 2 different sessions that on the left side as where you see now is selling lok lok, char koey teow, and a few other stuff and during night, you will see another different version at CKLam’s Blog. Padang Brown(click here)

Padang Kota Lama (1)

This place is no longer famous to only local crowds, whereby now it had attracted alot of people from other states and for so many havent been here, decided to take my KL friends to visit this place. I am quite surprise that its super pack that so many people are hunting for tables. Of course when you are talking about, holiday in Penang, most of the hawker center will be packed with people.

Padang Kota Lama (2)

Types of lok lok that you can choose from, frozen food, to fresh meats and of course this were not only the option as the full option can filled up the whole table, as we ask the auntie remove those that we are not interested, and when we wanted, we can just head to their stalls and grab back to our table.

Padang Kota Lama (3)

In this area, there are about 3-6 lok lok stalls and I guess their difference is their satay sauce. Usually I mix all in, as the smaller bowl is to add in more spicy, that I can even sweat after having a few sticks.

Of course one of the reason that many people are here is that, Padang Brown Lok Lok are consider one of the cheapest rate, whereby my KL friends also got shock on their pricing.

Padang Kota Lama (4)

Next I was hunting for other food beside Lok Lok then I saw this stall located at the very far corner are packed with people, is this little Yong Tau Fu stall. Of course when you mention that Yong Tau Fu, mostly will relate back to Ampang, but Penang version of Yong Tau Fu is very much different compare to the KL version.

Padang Kota Lama (5)

So I decide to join the crowd and wanted to test how nice is this stall since its packed with elderly also, and I guess its something healthy? :p Price is very reasonable as its stated up in the board.

Padang Kota Lama (6)

and I can tell you that, all those ‘kiasu’ uncle and auntie is like rushing in clipping the choices of food they want, whereby its like a closing down sale!

Padang Kota Lama (7)

So you queue up in one end, take a bowl and chopsticks, then with all the choices available on the table like pig intestine, pork ball, taiwan sausages, homemade fish ball, bean curd, that many more to offer, then you just pass your bowl to the owner and let him cut.

Padang Kota Lama (8)

After 25 minutes in the queue, finally, this is my super big bowl of Yong Tau Fu filled with lots of ingredient, that I bring over to the table, the rest of the 4 of them their jaw dropped and ask me why so big bowl! Cuz I find it cheap and only cost me RM17 for this whole bowl.

Once I put down, they whole bowl starting to get drained out, the soup taste so good and sweet, that they keep drinking on the soup till the last drop and, homemade fish ball is superb, bouncy and soft, their own homemade items, I guess its a must take item that all make it very nice!

No wonder the queue is so long as this is one of a nice Yong Tau Fu stall that I have miss those kind of taste~

Its a highly Recommended stall if you do drop by at this area!

One of the famous Tim Sum shop for breakfast in Penang. It has also been quite some time I did not visit this shop. Last visited was bout 5 years ago. As I have to bring my friend for breakfast, and decided to come back this shop as always mention by my dad how good it was as this shop is famous to all the nearby neighbourhood for quite long time already.


The shop is as usual packed with people from morning to night. As they have to different sessions. Morning will be the Tim Sum and Night will be the fried dish.

The troly being pulled infront of me, so get to choose what I want.

Ordered the Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fan’ whereby a must have dish for Tim Sum, it was so so only as the skin is too thick already. We only finish the prawns.

The ‘Wu Tau’ as one of my favourite. But today I think the yam, do not have the yam taste, feels abit weird but the ‘char siew pork’ in there taste nice. Not too salty yet perfectly juicy. Just the yam. Aiii

‘Fried Fu Chuk is one of the favourite, it is nicely fried as the crust of the skin is very crispy and the filling in it is very soft like home made fish ball. The mayonnaise we believe is home made too, as it taste sweet and goes along very well with the fu chuk.

Loh Mai Kai’ a common food for tim sum. Looks nice and oily, the chicken and the mushroom in it do not have much taste but the taste still lack of one taste, the original loh mai kai taste. Still feel that the 1 that I had in Genting is very nice and highly recommended tim.

This is one of their signature dish. Do not know what it is called but in the whole pau trolly this is the only odd colour looking, the auntie was selling hard on this. Decided to try it since she said its one of the best selling and the last piece.
I must agree with the auntie that this sure taste nice. The top is very soft like eating cake, and the filling inside is just nice, blend well with the top. Highly Recommended.
‘Char Siew Pau my favourite during tim sum. Very nice. The texture of the pau is nice and soft, the char siew inside is nicely fried along with the sauce.
I forgot what is this called already, by having me 1 person finishing the whole thing, taste quite good along with the cilisauce there, i think they have mixed it, chili sauce with the ‘tim cheong‘.
I personally do not like this but my friend she is having great time eating this. This depends on individual taste already.
Pai Kuat. So far still have not manage to find a nice 1 to eat during tim sum. Would not really recommend this as the meat is nicely steam but the sauce do not have a strong black bean sauce,the chili taste lack of it, and lack of salt.
Round up the whole session with a desert. As always my meal will usually end with desert. The ‘Longan Tau Fu Fa’. The pieces is very soft like taufu, the juice in there is not too sweet, and top up with longan. Just nice to complete the whole meal.
When I was paying the bill, I was quite shock again, as we ate so much and the total was only RM25. Aii, cheap loh~ With the food quality and the pricing so have not much comment on it. All the auntie there is very nice and warm.
They can just talk and talk to you and the auntie commented on my friend, ‘Wah, where r u guys from?Japan ah? then I laughed. Korea ah? you guys don look like local lei(in hokkein) you guys so fair. Then told the auntie, no la. We all ‘Pun Teh Lang’ (local ppl in hokkien)
