Hana Cafe @ Tanjung Bungah, Penang

I prefer to visit here at night which you can enjoy the ambiance of the cafe. But you can also visit on day time and you can have good lighting for photoshooting on food or model. It is not noisy cafe so it was a good choice for couple or group of buddies to gather here.

Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng @ Pulau Tikus, Penang

In Penang definitely you can get a taste of multi-culture delicate. I will introduce to anyone who haven’t get to taste the local mee goreng, grab yourself to Burmah Road and you will find one old kopitiam in the junction with Bangkok Lane (heart of Pulau Tikus). It was one of the best mee goreng in Penang and also one of my favourite.

The usual ingredients of mee goreng such as boiled potatoes, bean sprouts, shrimp cake, egg, tofu and dried cuttlefish, which make the mee goring one of the most memorable local delicate to try if you’re in Penang. With their signature reddish sweet potato gravy, chili souce and tomato souce it make the mee goring so tasteful. It taste sweet, sour and spicy. Many locals and tourists wait patiently everyday just to get a taste of it.

Roti Canai Transfer Road @ Transfer Road, Penang

Roti canai is a type of Indian-influenced flatbread found in Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and Singapore. It is often sold in Mamak stalls in Malaysia. If you’re thinking about hygiene, then you can simply throw it behind you. This stall is old but very famous in Penang.

Early in the morning, their stalls are crowded with patrons enjoying their roti canai and roti telur. Ofcourse, their roti canai is nothing very special but is their curries. Aromatic of the curry was different from other roti canai stalls with the spices used to spice up the curries. Different quality come in different price.

I start eating the roti canai here since I was in primary school and it was the best roti canai I ever eat especially the curries. But only once a while I get to taste of it when my dad bought them back for us on weekend as breakfast. If you can’t stand the strong curry, you should skip it. The beef curry was awesome but I love to mix all the curries together. It create the best mixture of curries ever.

It was the first time for my wife, I bring her to try it out and after eating them. She fell in love with it too. I also ordered Teh Ais while my wife order Teh Tarik. Because it was very crowded so it took about 15 minutes for our roti canai to serve to our table.
