Penang Assam Laksa

Almost forgot to share my experience at this famous Penang Assam Laksa stall during my previous Penang trip, until I watched the Bryan Wong’s TV programme on Ch 8 last night, which happened to recommend this Penang Assam Laksa stall. 🙂 This “pasar”, or market as we call it in English, is along Air Hitam…

Shopping in Penang

Seriously, Penang is a food paradise, not really a shopping paradise haha.  Nonetheless we still went to check out 2 shopping malls – Plaza Gurney and Prangin Mall. Plaza Gurney is just located next to G Hotel so it was very convenient for us to visit.  It’s actually a Capitaland-owned mall & is very much…

Rou Gu Cha King, Gurney Plaza

Rou Gu Cha King (also called Bak Kut Teh King, 肉骨茶王) has changed my perception of how Bak Kut Teh tastes like.:) I had never been attracted to eating Bak Kut Teh in Singapore although it seems to be one of the local favourites. So when my friend said that she wants to try it…

Nando’s is a restaurant specialising in grilled chicken from South Africa & has an outlet located at Gurney Plaza Lot No. 170-G-72 & 170-01-68.  Each time we returned to our room at G Hotel from Gurney Plaza, we would pass by this restaurant & the aroma of its food was simply tantalising.  So we decided…
