Tanjung Bunga

Birthday Celebration @ Hard Rock Cafe

My birthday dinner this year is a very memorable one. My bf treated me a meal at Hard Rock Cafe.

I just love the environment there. Yellow and warm lightings created a cosy ambient in the restaurant. Every night, starting from 10.30pm onwards, there will be a live band performing in the restaurant. This creates a more lively ambient.

Most of the drinks in the menu has alcoholic content in it. As I am allergy to alcohol, I ordered something fruity and without any alcohol. Berrilicious is the name of the drink.


Vintage Bulgaria | Penang Restaurant

15th August 09 is a memorable day to me. It’s my first time to attend Penang Floggers Gathering which was held at Vintage Bulgaria. Thanks to Alan for organizing such a successful event!

It was the 4th Penang Floggers Gathering and this time around the number of floggers have bloomed like mushroom after a rainy day.


24 hours Wan Tan Mee ; Penang Hawker Food

24 hours 7-Eleven, 24 hours KFC, 24 hours Mc D are familiar to us but 24 hours Wan Tan Mee? When I first heard about this, it was quite hard for me to believe it.

This stall operates by a 73 years old man and his wife. His wife operates the stall from 7am – 1pm, and the old man takes over then. The only off day is Tuesday night.

24 hours wan tan mee stall He has been operating the stall for ~ 50 years. According to him, he plan to operate the stall for another 2 years.

The stall owner in action making some wan tan for us.


Claypot Restaurant | Penang Restaurant

I read about this restaurant in Criz’s blog and longing to dine there since then. This restaurant is located at Tanjung Bungah just behind Mutiara Selera Food Court.

This is the outside of the restaurant. There are setting of tables and chairs which are meant for dining, but we chose to sit inside as it’s in the afternoon where the weather is hot.

Claypot Restaurant Exterior The ambient of the inside gives a very comfortable feeling. I believe it’s due to the yellow down light and the decor. There are some souvenirs sold by this restaurant.

Just a while after we were seated, we were served with these: 2 cups of tea OR 2 bowl of soups? It looks very much like the cup we used for chinese tea. But it’s soup inside it. Isn’t it too early to serve soup? The soup is cold when our food arrived. Anyway, the soup which is FOC doesn’t taste good. Taste too artificially sweet to me.


We ordered Mayonnaise Chicken, Chicken Omelette and Claypot Ginger Beef.

The Mayonnaise chicken doesn’t disappoint us as it taste good. Each piece of chicken is coated with mayonnaise and the meat is so tender. There are some chill powder in the mayonnaise sauce. It doesn’t make the chicken taste spicy but added fragrant into it.

Mayonnaise Chicken

Next is Chicken Omelette. This dish looks very home style where fried eggs were topped with a gravy of minced chicken with onions. The gravy tasted more to sweet side.

Chicken Omelette

How can I not ordered a claypot dish when I am in the Claypot Restaurant. The Claypot Ginger Beef came in a small claypot. The beef is tender and not chewy. The gravy is just mediocre. Maybe I am expecting some exotic flavour in this dish.

Claypot Ginger Beef

I opt for plain noodle to serve with all those dishes. The plain noodle as the name spelled, is plain and bland which is suitable to pair it with dished. A hint of soy sauce taste in the noodle and it is QQ. It’s an alternate choice from rice. I am not a fan of rice anyway.

The address of the restaurant:
48 Jalan Sungai Kelian, Tanjung Bunga, 11200 Penang, Malaysia.

Opening Hours: 12.00noon – 3.00pm, 6.00pm – 10.30pm (Closed on Monday)

Sambal Koay Teow | Penang Hawker Food

During weekend, it’ll always be late lunch for me … or shall I just replace it tea time? Normally I’ll take my brunch around 11am… so my stomach will be filled till evening.

It’s always hard to find food in the evening because most are closed or are yet to open … or just my problem in food finding?

From Bayan Lepas, we drove to pulau tikus, then finally to tanjung tokong directions. Then we suddenly thought of this hawker stalls along Mt. Erskine which is recommended by a friend.

It’s a long stretch of stalls opposite the very famous Mt. Erskine Western Food stall. A wide varities of hawker foods can be eaten here. But this Sambal Koay Teow attracted me most.

Sambal Koay Teow Stall 2

When the koay teow was served, I was like ‘oh, so it’s just a normal dry koay teow with sambal serve separately’. Feeling = disappointed at that moment. A bowl of fishball and meatball was served together.

First mouthful brings more disappointment as it taste so so only. Then my bf suggested maybe we should eat it together with the sambal. Since the sambal provided is quite little, we decided to add all into the koay teow.

Fish Ball Soup

First mouthful after we mix in the sambal, a sense of excitment as the sambal taste so spicy and it really added flavour into the dry koay teow. Yummy. Second mouthful … third mouthful… no complain… disappointment gone… Haha… But it’s too spicy after we add in all sambal. Maybe we should add in bit by bit until it taste just right.

Sambal Koay Teow 2

Just one dried koay teow is not enough for us la… hehe… So we order hokkien mee. The hokkien mee doesn’t taste good to me. The soup and the chili are not able to give me any omph…

Hokkien Mee

Our mouth still feel itchy for food after the hokkien mee. So, we ordered char koay teow. The portion is very small. Taste wise, so so.

Char Koay Teow

This place offer a wide varities of drinks. Everything looks so yummy to me, but too bad my stomach is filled with 3 plates of noodles and 1 cup of coconut drink. Haha.. big eater :-p

This is ice kacang is ordered by my friend. It looks good with lots of ingredients, but I didn’t taste it.
Ice Kacang

Will definitely back here for the sambal koay teow and to try out their ice kacang.
