Malay Food

Nurul Ikan Bakar Special


Let’s go for malay food today! There are a few malay ikan bakar (grilled fish) restaurants located opposite the Police Marine Batu Uban. It’s just located at your right hand side not long after you exit from Penang Bridge. We were just lucky to pick this restaurant (Nurul Ikan Bakar Special). It’s located at almost at the end of row. We picked it because it has the most customer at the moment comparing to others.

Ah Basri Satay @ Sungai Ara

I’ve spotted Ah Basri Satay for quite sometime but yet to drop my foot there, but after reading Lingzie’s post I can’t wait to try it out!


JJ Cafe (Jerejak Jetty Cafe) ; Penang Food

JJ Cafe is located at the jetty where you can take your boat to Jerejak Island. I thought that this place serves western food, but to my astonishment it serves malay food. Malay food is not a problem for me as I like spicy food.

We ordered nasi lemak, curry mee and one finger food.

The food was served quite fast as we are the only people dining there. The presentation of the nasi lemak is normal, the rice is not in a bowl shape which I expected it should be presentated that way. JJ Cafe Nasi Lemak To my disappointment, the rice was rather cold and lacked of coconut juice fragrant. The chili tasted more to sweet side. The chicken was something like soy sauce braised chicken which tasted very normal.

Penang Food | Supper @ Ali Kopi

It’s 12am in the midnight and our stomach is crying for food. Since it’s weekend, so we decided go out to hunt for supper. Hahaha…

Suddenly thought of this stall which was told by a friend of mine. The stall name is Ali Kopi which is located at the lane beside Sek Men Sri Pelita. Or I can say that it’s opposite old celcom building for those who are familiar with Penang.

We ordered tomyam maggi goreng and roti john hong kong.

There’s a fried egg on top of the maggi goreng. The egg yolk is just half cooked, just the way I like my fried egg. The maggi goreng tasted not too spicy and not too dry. There’s a small chicken drumstick is hidden in the maggi.

Maggi Goreng

The person who took order from us highly recommend the Roti John Hong Kong to us. So, we gave it a try.

There are 2 fried eggs on top of the bread. There’s a sausage and a piece of cheese just below the egg. This will be a very full supper for us.

Roti John Hong Kong 1

The bread was fried with some minced chicken. It looks burnt to me but taste wise still ok.

Although it’s already passed midnight when we left this place, there are still lots of customer having supper there.

Mee Goreng Sotong | Malay Food

Nowadays, when we are talking about mee goreng, we would always link to the one at Bangkok Lane.

But today I am going to review another mee goreng and definitely a good one. This mee goreng sotong is sold at the food court next to Fort Cornwallis at Esplanade.

Business start in the evening. The stall name is Hameed “Pata” Special Mee.

Hameed Pata Mee Goreng Sotong Stall See, a very very generous amount of sotong. The noodle colour is not as red as the one at Bangkok Lane, but it’s definitely more spicy than that one. The mee goreng is slighty wet but very fragrant.

The sotong taste sweet and spicy at the first few mouthful. Then it tasted spicy all the way until I finished the noodle. *Sweat*

Hameed Pata Mee Goreng Sotong If you are a sotong lover, you should definitely try this out.

I prefer this one than the one at Bangkok Lane. This is just my personal taste.

25 cents satay @ Balik Pulau | Penang Food

Where can you find a 25cents satay nowadays? Let me bring you to one good place for satay :-)

It’s at Balik Pulau. This stall was previously located at the back of balik pulau pasar beside an old cinema. But they have shifted to this new bulding near the balik pulau bus station.

The stall name is Hussain Sate. They serve chicken and beef satay. The stall open from 4pm to 9pm, closed on Sunday.

Hussain Satay Stall

The way you enjoy your satay here is you do not need to order how many sticks you want, instead just order the type you want. Then the owner will serve you with a handful of satay and will keep on adding for you until you say stop.

At their old location, they used to add the satay for you once they saw the satay on your table is running low. But now at the new location, they grill the satay at the back of their shop, so sometime you have to ask the owner to top up the satay for you because they lose their visibility to what’s left on your table.

Chicken satay. The size of the satay is definitely smaller compare to the one you usually get outside. The satay here taste more to sweet side. I prefer my satay this way because I normally don’t dip into the sauce when I eat satay. hehe.. Weirdo am I?

Chicken Satay

Beef satay. I like the beef satay here. Don’t worry, there won’t be any ‘beef smell’ in the satay. It taste quite sweet too, and the meat is tender.

Beef Satay

The speacialty to eat satay here is they serve bottomless onion, cucumber and satay sauce. You can opt to ask for them to refill for you or you can refill it yourself. Convenient right?

Cucumber and Onions

The satay sauce taste normal to me. I only eat cucumber with the sauce.

Satay Sauce See the size. So small.

Chicken and Beef Satay

This is our result – almost 300 sticks for 9 of us. Averagely for a guy, they can eat 40 – 50 sticks. I have friend who can eat up to 80 sticks. His stomach must be real big. hahaha…
If the map is too small, you can search for balik pulau bus station in google map. The stall is just located in the building next to the bus station.
