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!

Scouting for somewhere new to eat near FTZ area? It was through the word of mouth from a few friends recommending this place that both me and Chase decided to check it out. According to them, Kare is a MUST TRY if you are a Kare lover. We also did some reviews research online to check out their menu, unfortunately for us, they were not serving sushi when we visited. (which they proclaim it to be a MUST TRY too) Since it was our first visit, we would opt for recommended choices at the safe side.
绊 Kizuna, is a Japanese word meaning “bond”. They started their operation in the beginning of 2013 locating at Bay Avenue, Bayan Lepas (Beside Eastin Hotel Penang). With a basic concept of casual dining restaurant focusing on quality and a unique mix of traditional and modern Japanese dining. The cozy ambience and dim lighting has made it more comfortable for the customers to sink into the chatty and homey mood right away. Because the place is small in size, the noise would be in a controlled manner.
The Sweet Temptations Shop House (Sweet-i) is operated by a couple from a small corner stall opposite Tesco Extra to a rented place in Sg Dua houses. After some minor complications and moving around, their finally settled down in Lip Sin. Their main followers are the USM students nearby and sweet tooth lovers like me I’m always in a look out for tong shui shops in Penang but it was never a hit until Chatime, BlackBall and Tong Pak Fu came about. Even so, i would opt for this shop over the franchise shops. Ok why? Eventhough I’m a sweet tooth, I still opt for “healthier” dessert. Less sugar and healthier ingredients for instant.
What is unique about this shop is that, they use healthier ingredients to make their desserts. (Wolfberries / Fresh Black Sesame / Pear / Gingko Nuts / Mung Beans / Lotus Seeds / Almond Nuts and etc etc) Using also natural fruits as their sweetener instead of raw sugar. I’m sure some of their desserts have sugar but MOST of them are NOT sweet. That i can assure you. Also, the couple is very helpful when helping us to decide on the type of dessert to meet our craving. They will give us a detailed explanation on each dessert and its benefits.
