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.
It was serving with a piece of lime. Just before eating, squeeze in some lime juice and mix it all up! I tried without the lime juice it taste a bit different. After added the lime juice it taste wonderfully. But I do have friends which they eat without adding the lime juice.
James Foo Western Food been well-known for over 10 years for their affordable and economical price. Many choices to choose from their menu and also they offered Set Lunch which isRM13.50 (main course with 2 side dishes and a drink). Set Lunch only available from Monday to Friday (12.00pm to 3.00pm).
I was driving back from Sungai Petani after attending my uncle-in-law funeral. So I decided to have our lunch before heading back Penang island. My wife never tasted James Food Western Food before so it would be a good choice to let her try it out.
We both decided to select from Set Lunch menu as we both tired and need to head room for good rest. I choose Grilled Chicken with Black Papper Source while my wife chooses on Grilled Honey BBQ Chicken. Side dishes we both choosing the same Fries and Mashed Potatoes. As for drinks, we both decide on warm Honey Green Tea. The Honey Green Tea was very nice.

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.
If you never try out Mango Sticky Rice then you’re not in Bangkok before, it was one of the dishes you have to try out. And among all the Mango Sticky Rice. I tried before, Mae Varee is selling the best Mango Sticky Rice in Bangkok. I love the texture of the sticky rice and the sweetness of the mango. The sticky rice was still warm when I unpack them. Adding the coconut cream before eat and they match perfectly.
Previously they operate 24 hours but now they no longer open for 24 hours. They now open only from 6.00am till 11.00pm daily. Price also increased from 120 baht to 130 baht. This shop has been around for over 20 years and they are famous for Mango Sticky Rice. If you love mango, they also selling mango, good quality and gives the right sweetness and juiciness.
Golden Bowl Cafetiam is located at Batu Lancang. They have three favour cheese ramen but we choose two of the favour which is Tomyam and Curry. Because it was crowded on Sunday morning so we decide to order the Traditional Breakfast Set. We also ordered Milo Magic and Kopi Top as our drinks.
Within 10 minutes, our Traditional Breakfast Set was serve to us with our Milo Magic (ice-blended Milo ice with Milo powder on top) and Kopi Top (ice-blended coffee). The drink was nice and medium size only cost us RM3.90 per cup. The breakfast set is nothing much special.
