Restaurant Wong Soon Kee is one of my place that I used to eat alot during when I was studying at Metropolitan College back in those very long long time ago. Let me seee…I think should have been around 6 years already as I left Metro was year 2003.hmmmmm….back in those days, would eat late lunch if we crave to go here makan. Cuz they start operating after 2pm. Go too early also don have.

As I tried 2 attempt previously as once they were closed, 2nd time I was too early thought of trying my luck as I was there in that area early, mana tau..don have..

An option for rice or their chee cheong fun

This is what I usually order back in those days, their signature fried chicken wit white cabbage & mutton (curry banjir)and of course……….

nasi lemak (10)

The fried chicken that must not miss. I waited 15 minutes for the chicken and yet they still taste the same as last time.
I highly recommended this place to eat if you stand a chance to go nearby that area.

Usually when I am back Penang, a week before I will bug my friend to bring me nice places to eat or their latest discover, (sounds like I am a foreigner or outstation guest). Restaurant Hock Chuan Heong is one of the place that they usually will pop by for lunch is this traditional Hokkien dishes in Macallum Street here.(I used to stay here for 7 years, didnt know such shop existed.)

Oyster (1)

For those who are not familiar around the area, it would be tricky to locate it as its hidden behind a row of shop house that Pos Office Malaysia would be the landmark.

Oyster (2)

This place its famous for its authentic Hokkien dishes especially on their Oyster series. Its super pack during lunch time and it is advisable to do early lunch.

Oyster (3)

All the dish serve up pretty fast and this is what happen when you have 2 girls very hungry and cant wait for me to complete taking the picture first by snapping some of it first.. 😀

Oyster (4)

One of the dishes that must have is their classic Fried Oyster (Oh chien) . In most of the version that we have is either crispy or starchy and back to traditional its starchy. Fried to aromatic and dipping with their special chili sauce that makes it taste even better.

Oyster (5)

I cannot remember when is the last time I had this dish, that it was too long ago, that it used to be one of my grandma’s favorite dish. Found back the authenticity place for it, Oh Mee (Oyster Noodle) comes with generous ingredients and the gravy is slightly mild and find that noodle is over cook that make it too soft. Overall its not bad that many old people will sure love this taste.

Oyster (6)

This is Tau Kua Suan Na dish is fried and cooked with lots of leeks, added with little 5 spices powder to bring up the taste a little more. Gravy is nice and pour it onto rice, is good~

If you are looking for some authentic food then this is one of the place to hunt for. One of the set back of this location is limitation of Parking and best to park around Post Office area and walk towards behind it, or residential around that area.

Remark: The owner is a quite lansi (arrogant)

Tropicana is one of my favourite mall for movies based on convinience in parking, much less people and cheaper by 10%. One of the reason its nearer to my house and office. Well, there are actually some eatery in Tropicana that serve pretty decent food that I small little shop that I have dine pretty often is Tuan Yuen that serve Taiwanese food at Lower Ground, same area as Tea Chansii or Carrefour Level.

[UPdate – No Longer in Operation]

Bare in mind that Taiwanese food are mild in taste, not as heavy taste as our local food.

Taiwan (1)

This little shop is a small family business that operate by both the ‘tau keh so’ and her son along with 2 worker. The owner herself is from Taiwan that had migrated to Malaysia and starting up this business to promote Taiwanese food. Since I came back from Taiwan, this is something that is quite near to Taiwan food taste and sadly to say she is tweaking the taste to suits our local taste bud.

Taiwan (2)

Price is pretty decent that starts from RM7.50 and quite a huge range of Taiwanese food that you can choose from.

Taiwan (3)

One of my favourite is the dumpling that you must order, Me and ken love it alot as we find its pretty similiar to Taiwan. Something simple to start off with.

Taiwan (4)

Taiwanese sausage is pretty simple and direct whereby you can eat it in most of the night market . . .

Taiwan (5)

Taiwanese Style Extra spicy Beef Rice @ RM 11.90

Taiwan (6)

One of their signature is this Big Meal Beef Noodle, Extra Spicy @ RM 11.90 that I often order. Colour of the soup gives you the impresion that its not spicy and after a few sips of the soup, it will make your tongue numb as, spiciness are more towards Szechuan style. Loving it~ noodle are not cook consistant as it is suppose to be smooth and thin while eating and it have to depends on who cook it. If cook by both the owner or the son it taste good, and if its the worker, it would be usually overcook.

Beef slices are soft and goes well with noodle. They do prepare tissue for you on the table for you to wipe your sweat off. :D, Those who could not take spicy dish, it is not adviseable to order this, or maybe you can request the owner to toned it down for you.

Another thing that its a must order in here is their Winter Melon Tea. One of the best by far that I often came here to make a take away. I personally feel that it beats any of the bubble milk tea shop out there.

One of my personal fav Taiwanese shop.

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!

Few years back I have always wanted to go Jay Chou’s concert that I a nice feedback from my friend that they had a superb time at his concert. Then I got to know he is coming to Malaysia and I went to google about what’s Jay Chou The New Era 2011 World Tour is about. To my suprise the result that happen in China, Hong Kong and Singapore, the tickets for all shows were just snap up within couple of hours.

 Then I further read that, this time, its he to celebrate his decade in music industy and he is spending alot on stage and this time he is going 3-D and I think came into my mind was, movie 3-D wear 3-D glasses I know but concert 3-D means we have to wear glasses ah? well, just don care and posted on Twitter and Facebook who is interested to go with me, and asked my brother, he is in too, and some of my friends. We manage to purchase the ticket early Dec Last year when the ticket was launch as I know online ticketing will be jammed like Air Asia website on zero fair so asked my brother to purchase at Speedy outlet which just takes a while.

 The actual place I want to buy was Red L7 or L6 mana tau got snap up like hot cake and there written 5 star seatings so aim that area and they ended up getting U6 which I was little dissapointed on upper area as I know in concert have to be at lower tier to enjoy. Honestly, in the layout seating mention 5 star, it was totally the SUCKIEST location ever as we were blog by 2 story high speaker that block throughout 1/3 of the stage view that we cant really see the effect. There goes the recommended 5STAR . . . we were so blardy dissapointed!

 Went there early to see what is offering outside the stadium, mostly his merchandise and DVD world tour ..  Nothing special and even Jay Chou’s t-shirt is selling at Rm80 .. . My best friend Pak, me and my brother~

 Pak and Kelly came all the way from Penang for this concert. .

 This is how bare and all black looks like stage before the start of the performance. Damm… the rock zone sure is the ideal place to be in a concert but it was too expensive already for RM700++ a ticket to be in there.. . ..

 Then before the official event start, there are a few local artist was invited to perform and we have no idea who was it. cuz it our view was block . ..

 This is the first time I came to a concert, a really concert ambiance with so many neon lightss shinning in the stadium, like what we see in most of the concert at Hong Kong in the MTV. . .

Pan Mee no longer is a stranger to most of us and even some of you guys loving it with the original taste especially with the hand kneaded it out from the flour as that would be the authentic style, that I like  Ah Tee or Jojo Pan Mee. As now, more people are eating healthily, and I got so surprise that when I heard about this shop, House of Ceggo Food Station that located inside Taman Desa it’s a must go for me to try it out, with their unique preparation of soup base and cooking style of Pan Mee.

Ceggo

This shop is not hard to be located which is directly inside the whole stretch of shoplot.

Ceggo (2)

To me, the first feeling is more like those Hong Kong style cafe as what we seen in TVB with those push door and glass panel with two big chinese wordings on the glass panel.

 

Ceggo (3)

‘Lemon Grass Drink’ as I never really like the taste of the lemon grass but suprisingly the taste is not that strong as it taste quite fragrant and I end up having two glass of it.

Ceggo (4)

As I mention with those Hand Peeled or Hand Kneaded is one of the authentic way to prepare this Pan Mee but as the picture shown in the menu for the types of Noodle available, its quite cute for its description.

Ceggo (5)

Ceggo (6)

‘Fried Sui Kau’ Deep fried with solid mince meat, mix with small chunks of water chestnut, and some finely chopped spinach is good, crispy on the skin and dip with chili sauce is always the best.

Ceggo (7)

We start off with ‘Aunthentic Pan Mee’ which you can order with Hand Peel which is hand peeled from a big chunk of flour or

Ceggo (8)

Flat Rolled noodle as shown in the pictures.

Ceggo (9)

Next that got served, which really caught my interest is the ‘Tomato Pan Mee’ with most of the ingredient added on are the same which is anchovies, mince chicken meat, fried Tau Kee and the most important is the tomato soup base. Rich in flavor that create a bit thick milky taste and the noodle is perfectly cook, I just love it as it had the similar taste like Spaghetti Bolognese but appear in soup version – Recommended

Ceggo (10)

‘Ma Lat (Extra Spicy) Pan Mee’ that we got deceived by the fiery red colour of it and thought that it would be extremely spicy, but it turns out to be a bit of sour and spicy level which is not that Spicy to me and the rest.

 

Ceggo (12)

Another star of the night is ‘Pumpkin Pan Mee’ that I have always love pumpkin soup but now it had add in noodle and its not that milky and thick in taste as the soup serve purely in the restaurant as this had some modification that makes it blend very well with the soup base and the noodle. – Recommended

Ceggo (13)

If you are yam lover then you would want to miss their ‘Yam Pan Mee’ that used huge piece of yam cook inside the soup then cut into pieces to serve along with noodle and you just imagine, the yam fragrance and the soup did taste a bit ashy from the long boiled yam in the stove. Good Soup base I would say.

Ceggo (14)

Opt for something healthy or you dont feel well on that day, ‘Spinach Pan Mee’ is the one you are going after with finely chopped spinach that blend with flour and it is more like 80% pure of veggie in it that serve along with authentic soup base.

Ceggo (15)

‘Curry Chicken Pan Mee’ after shooting and it was gone in seconds. Thick Curry Chicken that pour upon the dry noodle that mix with black sauce just mix it very well, chicken is soft and juicy.

Ceggo (16)

‘Loh Pan Mee’ cook in the form of thick soup base, that do not taste very salty and a bit like shark fin soup taste but if you eat it pure the taste would not be that good, the trick is add in vinegar, it will pull up the taste and we add in the available vinegar given to us and finish fast.

Ceggo (17)

On that night it was Lionel Birthday and Sunny had prepared a Passion Fruit came for him.

Ceggo (18)

Lionel the happy guy for the night~ and of course it was a great discovery for us that we found a new nice place to eat and certainly I am going back for more that I would be recommending this place, as it is very reasonable in price starting from RM5.50 – RM9 per bowl.
