If you are looking for a homemade and delicious salmon steak, Ceylone House should be the place to be. So it was thru Groupon that we first heard about this place. Located at Lorong Ceylone, a road away from Secawan ‘n’ such and New World Park away from the busy roads in Georgetown city. Maintaining the classic traditional wooden windows and door reminded me of the olden generation houses back in the 80s’. Glide thru the walls with a coat of white paint and decorated flowers, the refurbished cafe looks brand new and homey. With the soothing sound of the radio FM playing while dining has definitely made us ponder on how things have slowly transform from the 80s’ to 90s. The new era of technology replacing the old and etc. Nevertheless, we both enjoyed our quiet time here.
Dubu dubu, also means tofu in korean. May it be Korean-KPOP to Korean Kimchi or Korean Running Man, the hype has not gone down. Expanding from Kuala Lumpur, Dubu dubu Urban Korean Food was brought to Gurney Paragon Mall and officially opened its door to the public on 5th Sept With this new addition, we now have more korean food option to choose from. Located at the basement of the mall taking up one corner a few steps from the escalator from Victoria Secret/ Ben’s or H&M. With a simple interior, the large space is able to accommodate large groups and gatherings.
Another point of emphasize especially to my fellow Muslim friends, this restaurant is chopped HALAL.
We started our Korean foodie adventure in Daorae Korean BBQ, and i instantly fell in love with their Soon-Dubu Jigae. It became a MUST HAVE on the table when i’m in any Korean restaurant. I must say, most of the korean food is exceptionally healthy. Using ingredients like tofu, bean paste, chillis, fermented vegetables cooked with tasteful broth and distinct spicy flavour. So why wait! Drop by and try it on your own!
Given every opportunity (& the extra space in our stomachs to gobble down some dessert), we constantly look for new eateries in Penang to try out. Among all the new quaint cafes sprouting out, Sugar Honey is newly opened, next to its neighbour with slightly more recognition, Moustache Houze. Like many other cafes located in Georgetown, it has a similar concept as many others: a touch of edginess on top of some preservation of the old. Apart from the food and drinks, they also sell some crafty items in the shop; feel free to look around because there’s no harm to your wallets doing so!
As we approached the cake display, we were greeted by a friendly lady whom we assumed to be the very owner of Sugar Honey. She kindly offered some recommendation for cake orders and mentioned that their cakes are all homemade and fresh from the oven. Some of her recommendations include their tiramisu, which contains mascarpone with alcohol and hence has a light creamy texture on top of the richness of the coffee liquer. Unfortunately, their tiramisu can only be featured after our second visit to the cafe since it wasn’t part of our order.
What we can offer, however, is a slice of their Chendol Crepe Cake. We love how they have added a touch of localisation to the original mille crepe, instead of the usual mille crepe flavours you find.
