  • Ingolf Kneipe: Value for money German restaurant

    by aj01kok Updated Aug 20, 2010

    They have beef & pork patties, roast chicken thigh, sausages & fish that come with a generous helping of salad and potatoes (chips or mash). Can't remember the price, think it is RM13.80.

    Salad comes with a few pieces of garlic bread and is RM9.80. The salad was only RM6.80 a few years back and had come with a basket of assorted bread and pieces of butter.

    Every order comes with a free glass of ice lemon tea. Desserts (pudding, jelly..) are free for the taking at the counter.

    Favorite Dish: My fav dish is Julian's chef salad- Lettuce, green & red pepper/capsicum, cheese, chicken breast, ham, bacon, olives with vinegarrete dressing.

    Hawker Centers and Coffee Shops: "Leng Geng" Drink

    by SLLiew Written Jan 29, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Leng Geng" is a popular drink in Penang available in all hawker centers and coffee shops.

    The ingredient is mainly dried longan (leng geng in local Hokkien Chinese dialect) with sugar syrup and usually served iced (leng geng peng) or hot (leng geng som).

    Another name for it is "Sio Pak Hu" (fighting fish in Hokkien) because before many places served it in a small jar and the brown floating longan inside resemble "Siamese" fighting fish which are kept in similar jars.

    Try ordering "Leng Geng" the next time.

    Street Stalls: Bak Kut Teh (Pork Rib Herbal Soup)

    by SLLiew Written Jan 29, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bak Kut Teh in Chinese means "Pork Rib Herbal Soup". It is considered a Malaysian Chinese concoction originating from Kuala Lumpur and now popular through Penang.

    Intially, it is just pork rib in a herbal soup eaten with a bowl of white rice. The herbal soup is prepared from a combination of Chinese herbs and plants with medicinal value. Its taste is an acquired taste and does taste like a medicinal remedy.

    Now, you have a choice of three-layered pork, pig's tail, different parts of the pig, mushroom, soya bean curd, meatballs, etc. Then there is also "black rice" and "yau char kwai" deep fried flour snack and green vegetables as option. Cut garlic, chillies and dark soya sauce are for dipping for taste.

    Bak Kut Teh is now eaten mainly at weekend breakfast, dinner and late supper. There are many stalls that serve at Gurney Drive in the morning, opposite Tesco Extra at Sungai Dua and up to 2-3am in the morning at Perak Road (opposite Padang Brown) and Dato Kramat near Penang Stadium.

    Bak Kut Teh dried soup ingredients are now sold in plastic packets in most supermarkets so that travelling Malaysians will still be able to cook their own Bak Kut Teh overseas.

    Blue Moon: Don't Be Blue there

    by ATXtraveler Written Apr 7, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located inside the Hotel Equatorial Penang, the restaurant Blue Moon called my name for a beer or two, as well as a little bar type food with a Malay twist. I was the only one in the bar at about 6pm, but the waitstaff was still friendly and helpful without seeming to be doting over me.

    I went with the Roti and curry, as well as a order of Satay Chicken, and both were excellent. I topped it off with one or two Tiger Beers, and it made for a nice small easy dinner.

    While I waited for dinner to arrive, I did get the chance to play a game of darts against a member of the band that was setting up to play that evening. Since there was no one else in the room, they let me decide whether I wanted them to play their music, or just relax.

    Mr Ho's Fine Food: Western Food

    by gnh Written Aug 8, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Housed in cosy premises, Mr Ho's did not deliver as it ought to. Paying RM 80 for roast pork and drinks for 2, the service was nothing to talk about.

    The workers were confused ( as usual in most places in Malaysia ).

    Seems only the family run business are the only ones offering good service !

    Favorite Dish: Been here only once, and don't ask me about western food.

    Better stick to local fare in Penang.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This must surely be the best Penang Laksa !

    By common agreement the most famous and unmistakably original Penang laksa --- by far.

    See the workers in ceaseless motion catering to the hundreds if not thousands of customers on a busy day.

    Aunt's cooking: Home cook food!

    by Xinta Written Mar 15, 2003

    What do you expect from a home cooked food? One thing I can tell you is that my aunt is a fantastic cook! Besides, eating together with family/relatives is always the best thing to do, especially if you don't see them that often. :-)

    For You Yen Vegetarian Centre
    Vegetarian food which, with a little bit of creativity, combines Taiwanese style of cooking with local style to create vegetarian dishes.

    Favorite Dish: They cater for lunch and dinner. They have ready cooked dishes where you can pick and choose what you would like to eat. Or you can have parties and events at the premises, and order the vegetarian dishes ala carte.

    Chelliah Mamak: Chelliah Mamak

    by moomoos Updated Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a stall under a big shady tree, located just next to one of the main roads in Penang. It's a different experience for ppl not used to eating this way.

    Favorite Dish: This mamak stall brings back alot of memories. My bf and I used to stay in the block of apartments opposite this mamak stall. We used to eat here almost everyday...for breakfast or lunch.

    The best thing on the menu is...the Tosai and Chicken Curry. The plain tosai is only 70sen while the curry is RM3.50.

    Try the 'teh tarik' too. It's just tea...but prepared in a unique way of 'pulling' the tea from teacup to teacup. It's the best! Then pic shows how teh tarik is being pulled! :)

    For clubbers, this place is good. It opens late until about 4am. You can have your supper here. And by 5:30am, breakfast is ready! haha

    Favorite Dish: Dim Sum for breakfast(from 5.30 am. to 12 pm) and loads of other varieties for dinner!!!!

    Try the Curry Fish Head here. It's quite popular with the locals. Other food is equally as good. Go to the website as listed. And from there, you can actually click on the different stalls' website and have a look at the food. You'll have an idea how each food looks like!
