Weekend's here and I like riding my motorcycle to places nearby for a roadside fare. Doesn't matter if its for a drink or visiting some packed with people roadside stall. I just felt fun doing so. Provided the sun is half way down the hill XD 

It's been a while since discovering rare hawker stalls like Penang Road Ais Tingkap and Hai Choo Temple Curry Mee. Now comes another underdog.

The Farlim road side laksa or better known as 红灯角十七层老字号叻 沙. This uncle has been selling at this area for about 2 years now and is well received by local Farlim people. An aunty claimed that her son must have his laksa whenever he comes back from KL. Well, that's what I heard from the aunty when she tapao-ed for her son.

A very friendly uncle and he allowed me to snap a photo of him. We chatted a bit and he told me that he use only the freshest fish available. If not mistaken, he uses some other fish instead of ikan kembung and cleans the fish thoroughly. Everytime I visit the stall, the vegetables and pineapples used are always fresh. He only cut bits of bunga kantan (ginger flower) separately when there is an order.

Not much space at the stall, so I had to tapao on a separate day to take photo of the Laksa. When I took my first slurp of the soup, I felt regret. Regret on why I'd only visited the stall after 2 years since he starts selling there. I just love it. No fishy smell. No over-boiled fish broth. The whole bowl of laksa is just fragrant. Just like how a kocha-bi laksa would taste. Not overly sweet. The spiciness was just right.

Verdict? Forget about massly produced Air Itam laksa and Penang Teochew Chendol laksa. This uncle only prepares 2 huge pots of laksa broth.

He gave me a namecard with his contacts.

Penang Hameer's Bay Ikan Bakar Revisit

Posted by Cokeworld Citizen | 11:38 PM | 0 comments »

The last time I went there was with my uni coursemates and it was almost 2 years ago. Not exactly a happy ending meal if you judge solely on the food :P

2 years later only I realized that I have been ordering from the wrong stall! >< Not sure if Hameer's Bay is a restaurant name or the place name but the stall I visited today is worth a mention. I am giving a 5 star for today's dinner.

Note: We visited the stall on our right, located at the very end. There is only one entrance to this place so you would know what I am talking about once you get there ;)

6.15pm is the time where my office colleague will be fleeing this week otherwise we would be drenched like 'soup chicken'. Fortunately, it rained earlier today, leaving the rest of the evening dry and cooling clean air :)

Nice place to have your dinner. But I would recommend to visit places like this during high tides so the 'smell' would be...uhm...less strong. LOL I would still give 1 star for location. Being at the seaside with unlimited view of Penang bridge. Where to get??

Waiters will come over to ask for your orders. We chosed 1 jug of Watermelon Juice kurang manis, RM8. Normal drinks in jug is RM6. Either way, it is very important that you say kurang manis :P

First off...Sotong Goreng or what westerners like to call, Deep Fried Calamari. However there is a difference. Our local Sotong Goreng is smaller in size, thus cook faster and less chewy. RM10 for 2 pax.

Absolutely fresh and we can actually 'see' the sotong in Sotong Goreng haha! The batter taste not bad itself either. I think I did get hints of egg smell while munching. Maybe more eggs will make the fried batter less hard :P Needless to say...its sedap. 1 star.

We ordered Koay Teow Kung Fu for 3 pax (RM4.50 per pax). When it was served, we were literally shocked and jaws dropped all the way to the sea...haha kidding. Anyway, never in our minds that it would be that 'huge'! OMG...The portion's definitely worth 1 star LOL

I love this dish to bits :D Packed with vege, sotong, prawns, chicken meat chunks and loads of EGGS. Koay teow was very fresh too and smooth. The flat rice noodle would be panfried with eggs until golden brown and served with the egg-y clear sauce cooked with all the ingredients mentioned above.

My colleague saw a patron sitting next to our table ordered satay. We were amazed by the size of the satay so we ordered too. When the satay arrived, I was also shocked to hear RM6 for 10 sticks. Damn cheap!

The color looks great. Everything is fresh. Meat was tasty, sticky-sweet, flavourful and not too hard. Although some of them were uncooked, the old couple gladly re-grill the satays and replaced the one I found uncooked. So we give 1 star for this good service haha!

Total damage, RM31.50(drinks,noodle,sotong) + RM6 (satay) and all 5 of us were bloated.

Near Queensbay Mall roundabout.
12 o'clock direction if you are coming from Sungai Dua, USM.
3 o'clock direction if you are leaving Queensbay.
9 o'clock direction if you are taking the highway.

Penang Ritz Bakery Green Tea Cake

Posted by Cokeworld Citizen | 3:51 PM | 1 comments »

For the record, a lot of people have been asking if there is any cake worth trying. I say green tea's gotta be on top of the list. Hands down, the best green tea cake I'd tried so far. Pack with REAL green tea flavour in the cream and its so so delicious! What's more? The price is really reasonable. Just RM32 for 1/2kg and that is only RM4 more expensive than Bread History's cake. One piece of the green tea cake cost RM6.20 but quickly solds out.

My friend bought it to celebrate my birthday and we were having dinner at Ajinoren Japanese Restaurant. Ritz Bakery is just behind Ajinoren (on the other side of the Prima Tanjung building). Strategic place to celebrate birthday right? LOL

I myself chomped 2 piece even I was already full. Japanese dinner with Japanese Green Tea cake. Perfecto!

Note: The cake melts quite fast so either you finish it or get home quickly and shove it into the fridge :P
