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!

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.
Uncle Albert Fish & Chips is one of the newly opened restaurant in Straits Quay. Known for their secret battered recipe Traditional English Fish and Chips which remains only within the family to this day. Uncle Albert expanded all around England and Ireland, now they are here in Asia, Straits Quay, Penang. They were having their opening promotion when we visited. For lunch, they will first serve us homemade bread to be dip into their homemade soup with a complimentary homemade iced lemon tea. While for dinner, they exchange their homemade ice lemon tea with ice-cream.
They have very limited choice of main course for their set menu but the service is great and we didn’t have to wait very long for our meals. During the normal days, you can opt for their Halibut and Cod. It might be on a pricey side, however the quality of the food is worth the money. For every main course meal, they are also giving a complimentary irish brown bread, ice lemon tea and homemade soup
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.
What first came to my mind when we first visited this place is US pizza is originated from US. Is only at one’s rightful mind that they will think that way. So I decided to google and do some research about the place The place is very well decorated with car plates from all around the States and New York Statue of Liberty. The colour and designs are so catchy that you tricked yourself in believing that you are actually eating your lunch somewhere in the States. *Slaps!!! Back to reality*. The background and table cloth is covered with hot spicy red colour with red lights to match
Another US Pizza restaurant pop out located at Gujarat,India instead of the one in Penang, Malaysia. Well be sure you check properly the right restaurant before placing your orders Else, someone else might get it :P. I also looked thru their menu, not the same too hence they are not franchise.
For any promotion, you can check out their FB page. I couldn’t find their official website. They also have their promotions display outside their shop. Be sure to check it out before ordering
