    Puncak Mutiara Cafe: Local and Western Food

    by AngMimi Updated Oct 30, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What makes it so special? This is a Malay restaurant where they served chicken, rabbit, mutton, beef, ostrich, venison and quail, which they reared all the animals in the farm where this restaurant is situated. Its about half and hour drive from BM town.

    I went there with my officemates for dinner. The place was really nice, with small huts here and there, there are even bigger hut over the fish pond for bigger group of crowds, a small fish pond for children to feed the fishes..I like the place, no wonder its the talk in the town and facebook.

    The restaurant is open from 10am to 2am. Closed on special holiday like Hari Raya and Raya Haji.

    In daytime, you can visit the animal farm for the children but me, I will not want to see the animals as i don't want crying my eyes out in one corner of the farm.. thinking all those cute animals will ended up.. :-(( silly me.

    Favorite Dish: The satay must be good - chicken and rabbit.
    Oh.. there are too many food, i cant write here..
    Just refer to their website for the menu: http://www.puncakmutiara.com/

    All the food we ate just cost : RM $72.00..

    Famous Mixed Rice in BM: Chicken and Pork Rice

    by AngMimi Updated Oct 30, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What make it so special? No, its not the owner who like to wear sexy, its the rice that cooked (steamed) individually in stainless steel bowl, then the rice will be served with generously amount of roasted chicken and pork on top and with a lot of special black gravy over the rice, the more gravy tasted even better and lastly green pickle cili padi..Yummy. If you eat there, then you will be served with special soup of the day with the earlier stainless steel bowl with some rice can still be seen sticking in the bowl, hahaha..thats the unique way you are served..
    Keep quiet and enjoy the mixed rice..

    Price : Malaysian Ringgit $3.50 per serving.

    Cheok Sah Food Court: Near the railway station

    by SLLiew Updated Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Near the BM railway station and next to the old cinema is the Cheok Sah food court which is popular with the locals for assam laksa, ice kacang, curry mee and mee jawa.

    It is popular with the locals and best time to go in the afternoon. One of my favorite places to have a quick afternoon meal whenever I visit Bukit Mertajam. So look out for me if you are there.

    If driving, you can park at the railway station car park, turn left and keep walking for 5 minutes until you see the food court on your left. There are other roadside parking but it can be difficult to find an empty lot.

    Cheok Sah Food Court: Cendul - another popular dessert

    by SLLiew Updated Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A cousin of the "Ice Kacang", the "Chendul" is similar in concept "sweet" and "cool".

    The types of ingredients are fewer and mainly just green "chendul" which are fragrant "pandan" leaves flavored noodle-like and boiled cooked red beans.

    Similary ice is shaved on the spot using a rotating blade machine. Then the heavy white coconut milk is poured over the ice. The taste is heavenly. Try it.

    Cheok Sah Foodcourt: Ice kacang - cool dessert

    by SLLiew Updated Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When eating the hot and spicy laksa noodles, the ice kacang is an excellent dessert companion.

    "Kacang" in Malay means "bean" So for ingredients, the boiled cooked red kidney bean, black seaweed "leong fan", green pandan leave flavored "chendul", yellow corn, jello, even nutmeg or other additions are placed at the bottom of the bowl. Then used a rotating blade, the ice block is shaved onto the ingredients and make into a cone shape. Then sweet syrup of different colored flavors are added on the ice with a dash of condensed milk.

    Best eaten before the ice all melt. Cool and refreshing.

    Cheok Sah Foodcourt: BM Laksa one of the best

    by SLLiew Written Jan 5, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Laksa is local favorite for Penang, Kedah and Perlis region. It's origin is a combination of Malay, Thai and Chinese.

    A bowl of rice white noodles in a fish meat based soup that is spicy, sourish and hot. Additional chilly and the hea-koh (black shrimp paste sauce) are optional. Garnished with chopped onions, cucumber, vegetable, pineapple, ginger flower (laksa flower), fragrant leaves.

    Found the laksa noodle here extra thick and yummy. Each laksa outlet have their peculiar laksa soup which is definitive. Best taken when served hot. The stall is minimal but the laksa great.

    Puncak Mutiara Cafe: Kampung Style Eating in Kubang Semang 1

    by DaHongHua Updated Jul 12, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Thanks to AngMiMi I come to know about Puncak Mutiara Cafe in Kubang Semang and I went there before 2013 Ramadhan start. It was indeed a great eating experience with my wife and daughter in a Kampung Style restaurant where we can either choose to dine in a big dining hall, inside an air-conditioned hall, in a private hut or a round table under a tree. We requested the waiter to recommend what to eat and we were happy to follow his suggestion to pick PMC specialty according him. I have some time to have a quick walk around before our food arrive. The arrow guides ( pic 1 ) offered help to show you where you want to go. As we are only 3 persons, so we choose not to occupy a big hut but to sit under a tree.

    Favorite Dish: The Puncak Mutiara Special ABC
    The PMC Set Dinner with LIme Drink
    The Merryland Chicken
    The mushroom soup

    The arrow sign give you some guide eating in a private hut is enjoyable food ordering in progress The waiter forward one's order to the kitchen part of the kitchen, hot plate cooking in progress

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beside enjoy eating, I go around to explore the PMC. All workers are in their uniform but they are in different rolls. There are waiters, runners, cooks, cleaners and cashier ... The Animal Resort has many kind of animals that could be end up on dinning table, Oh ! so sad. According the hanging banner on the fence, the swimming pool is opened to public with fees. If you opts to dine in the air-conditioned hall during weekday by request, an additional charge need to be paid. The hall is opened to all diners when weekend and public holiday with no additional charge.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I 1st ate the Korean style when in Taichung. Soon, I realise this type of restaurants are in Malaysia too, mostly in the shopping mall.
    The Ocean Garden is in the AEON shopping mall, Alma, Bukit Mertajam, at the level of food court and next to it, with other franchising fast food outlets are the neighbours.
    We were attractted by the students discount to dine in. The drinking glass ( cold ) or cup ( hot ) for drink are count separately for the free flow drink. If you are many and all the family members, you can opts to get less cups.
    It is a HALAL reataurant. Most meat and seafood are marinated with spice and flavor. There are some served in original way with the shell too.
    If you still have space in your stomach after a few round of boiled and BBQ. There are fried noodle and deserts and also fruits and ice cream waiting for you.
    This restaurant suite best to a great eater.

    BBQ or steamboat boil share the same stove marinated meat, halal style some sea shells fish ball and produced foods
