Being born in the land of hawker’s paradise definitely sets my expectation higher. Hopping from one corner of the island to the other to seek for the best hokkien mee. Some may argue, there are better Hokkien Mee in KL or Ipoh has the best Chee Cheung Fun. But you can never go wrong when it comes to the authentic taste and originality of the hawker’s food, it would be Penang Hokkien Mee and Laksa. Wu Jia Zhuang at Jalan Siam outshine the others by serving the hokkien noodles in the claypot. This way, the soup will be preserved warm until one finishes the entire bowl of noodles and wiping it up to the last drop. Also in the list of their menu, Wu Jia Zhuang also serves some local favourites chu char catering for those who prefer to have fried vegetables or steam fish with rice. It definitely gave me the impression of healthy and light meal. Good news is, they served their chu char and hokkien noodles all day from 10am – 9:30pm. Their chu char will be next on our list

Penang Camera Museum is known to be one of the main attraction spot in Georgetown, located at Muntri Street where the “Little Girl in Blue” mural drawn by Ernest Zacharevic is at. Launched on 31 Aug 2013 and officiated by the Penang Chief Minister in hope to create a better visualization for children in photography and eye opener for newbies. While walking thru the walls of the exhibition, one can immerse into the evolution of cameras from the eighteen century to the magic of photography in the dark room. Displaying a collection up to 1000 vintage cameras and accessories in the museum. They topped up with a toy camera corner where Disney cartoon meets vintage. What better way to end the tour with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in their cozy setting cafe.
Double Exposure Cafe is located at the last section of the Camera Museum in Penang serving assorted cakes, cupcakes, pies and light breakfast. Double Exposure Cafe served their drinks in camera lens cup which goes very well with the overall theme. Their concept is to have a chilling area after a 30-40 mins tour around the museum with simple wooden setup. Preferably small group for gathering, as they might not be able to cater a table of 8 or more.
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!
Secawan ‘n’ such On Hutton is within walking distance from New World Park and just a few shops away from the famous House of Udang Galah situated along Hutton Lane. It primarily serves breakfast foods like pancakes, french toast and eggs benedict, not forgetting several pasta dishes which is almost a must for most cafe spots nowadays. Also, its refrigerated glass display by the cashier keeps all its cakes and desserts chilled and ready to be served in this hot Penang weather. We truly enjoyed the comfortable and cozy cafe setting in Secawan, not forgetting its thoughtful interior that leaves just enough space between tables for private conversations.
We were already running late, missed our lunch, hence we were thankful we found this place SUSHI ZENTO. It was also near their closing hours when we arrive at 245pm, but we were greeted with the warm smile from the employees in the restaurant. Assisting us to our seats and making sure that we have ample of time to decide on our late lunch before coming over to take our orders. However, the Kaiten belt has already stop operating when we reach.
Located in Precinct 10, Tanjung Tokong, Sushi Zento shares the same company with Azuma, Queensbay Mall and Edo Ichi, Island Plaza serving Japanese food. I like how each restaurants has their own unique BEST SELLING DISHES. Sushi Zento, serves pork (NON HALAL RESTAURANT) but the rest don’t. The restaurant has two main areas, the outdoor faces the happening Precinct 10 party while the indoor has the view of the chef on the counter slicing your tasty sashimi and the selection of sushis from the Kaiten belt.
