For the Country Fried Chicken, the chicken breast is crispy but I think it needs more seasoned before it was fried. As for the Crispy Honey-Chipotle Chicken. The meat is tender, not succulent but not dry either.The sauce is spicy, not the kind of pepper, chili, or spice's kind of hot. The spiciness was build from chipotle. I don't enjoy chipotle but the combination was not bad.

Teluk Kumbar Khuntai is a big restaurant with indoor and outdoor sitting areas together with big parking lot.

This is our first time trying this restaurant after been recommended by my brother. My wife and me tried the Braised Lambshank and Pesto Chicken and found they are below our expectation and overpriced. In my humble opinion, the lambshank is not as fresh and soft like Secret Recepie; for the Pesto Chicken, the portion is a bit overwhelmed for my wife and it is not really impressive. I am curious maybe we are not trying the right stuff but the food attendant is not helpful and the menu had no picture at all showing the real presentation of food. I think this shouldnt be happened in a professional restaurant who demand higher than average price tag and for us they under-deliver and a no for us.
CRC restaurant is one of the most famous Chinese restaurants in Penang, the restaurant is located at Chinese Recreation Club (CRC) along Macalister Road and Burmah Road. In order to have this dish (Buddha Jump Over Wall), we need to call in a week before for reservation as it takes sometimes for the chef to prepare the ingredients and cook.

I must admit, I really stumbled upon this place while getting myself lost around Penang island with a map in hand. I was like, whoa what is this, looks interesting… Let’s go!! And so I stumbled upon this charming place of 200 years history.
this elegant, charming restaurant serving ‘the best of Old & New World Cuisine’. The name itself ‘Sire’ lulls one into reminiscing of the old English days when one with power and authority were addressed as such.

Pancake: I thought zucchini is raw veggies that goes well with sandwich. I rarely see dishes prepared with cooked zucchini, not to mention pancakes. (ok, the savoury pancake is already a great shock ). One side of the pancake was bake to crust while the other side remain soft and cloudy. The zucchini was not overcook. The veggies remain it's moist with tender juicy filling. Onion sauce: Consuming the plain zucchini pancake is already a bless, but when both the pancake and onion sauce WOW! Exquisite! The oily saute do not moist the crunchy grill like layer of the pancake, but give an extra smoothing texture to the pancake. Need not to explain, the slightly salty sauce is the origin of the savoury taste for the pancake. Salmon: One of the best, or probably the best salmon I ever taste in my life! The fillet was not marinated, but it is reasonably fresh (of course you can't compare the freshness with a freshly slaughted Salmon sashimi~). It was also not over cook or still raw (I had some bad experience of raw and non fresh grill Salmon before -___-), very juicy, slightly oily with a crusty outer layer+skin, *muack* just the way I like my Salmon to be ^ ^ Mash Potato: No surprise in the mash potatoes. I think more milk can be add to enhance it texture and flavour.No comment on the mashed pea and sour cream topping, just decent I would say. Overall: 9.5/10 (A very new concept of specialty restaurant that focus on pancake. Rare, fun, excited, good experience) Taste bud indulgence: 10/10 (PHOP really amazed me, I like the surprises and unexpected taste bud experience, would like to come back to try more ^ ^) Purse saver: 8/10 (I know specialty restaurant will rank at higher price, but out of Asia, pancakes are just some normal daily meal, part of their life! Don't you think we deserve to charge lesser? Although geography constrain the receipt to be norm in Malaysia, but pancakes flour is very cheap in Malaysia! *>.<* ) Atmosphere: 9/10 (Warm with a classy touch, good place to hang out. The dim ligh in the shop is more romantic than the tables located outside)
Foremost and famous Air Itam Asam Laksa, some claim they are the best in Penang, some even said this is the best Asam Laksa.
WTF!!! I came to visit this place because somesay the laksa is one of the must try food in Penang. My wife and I wanna save room for some other delicous food in Penang, so we just order 1 laksa and we share it. My friends also ordered 1 laksa and share with his wife. Out of sudden the beverage stall worker automatically put 3 sugar cane ice and force you to pay. WTF! Why must I drink sugar cane in the first place! I was intented to order coconut ice because the weather is hot and try to cool down the heat but... F***, I rejected him and he try to threatened me by saying "You must order drink in order to have laksa here"... !@#$. I don't like to be forced to do something that I don't want to and still I rejected him again. !@#$. Finally the laksa is served and it cost RM3.50 each and my wife gave the old lady RM50. After waited for like 20mins, the old lady still hasn’t returned RM43 and I called the lady for my change. The f***ing old aunty return me just RM3 and insist she accepts only RM10 from my wife. WTF, RM50 become RM10!! I argue with her and she runs back to the stall (maybe trying to get cover from the stall owner). I followed her to the stall and start asking for the change from the owner. F***, the owner said that the aunty will only accept RM10 from customer and for RM50, other worker will collect from you. WHAT?! I was stunned and this is the first time I heard this kind of reason to cheat money. The stall owner also said I should have asked for the change immediately. !@#$ F***, they have many customer and very busy so it is normal for them to take time to return my change. Their worker start to accuse I have made a mistake. F***!! No point to keep arguing with this kind of rude people, my wife throw back the RM3 at them and stormed out….. F*** spoiled my holiday mood…. Rm50 for 2 F***ing asam laksa!! Your food is famous doesn’t mean you have the right to treat customer in such manner.
Overall, the environment at the Cafe is very nice and the staffs were very professional and friendly. Once you finish your food, the plates are taken almost instantly. You will never get thirsty and they fill up your drinks all the time. Food at the buffet are always replenished so it never ends.
The full review and more photos are available in this link: http://draftsfromcoffeetable.blogspot.sg/2011/11/international-buffet-dinner-cafe-laurel_21.html Truth is, I was slightly disappointed with the food there. Not to say that the food was not nice, but the selection of food could do with some improvement. Since this was supposed to be an international buffet, with Italian as a the main choice of theme, the choices were the usual you would expect from any locally planned 'international buffet'. As I looked back to my dining experience, I was still pleasantly surprised that the one most memorable thing I had in Café Laurel was... their milk. The full cream milk was pleasant sweet, the kind of sweet that was different from any other milk which I tasted before.
Little Cottage Cafe is a cozy cafe. The entire place is exactly how a cottage would be!! The place may look rather small but once you enter, it gives you a very homey feeling. A nice place to go after a long day's work!!!

A 10-15 minutes boat ride from the Batu Musang new jetty brought us to Pulau Aman where there existed the famous floating seafood restaurant. The seafood is real fresh as you can see fishermen bringing in all the live catch, which include varieties of shell fish, fish, flower crabs, prawns and mantis prawns. You can even try catching your own and get therestaurant to cook for you at minimal charges.

Food Rating 7/10, quite okay, because its fresh~ ~-Stamped-
The wide buffet area housed a variety of food, from traditional local specialties like nasi lemak to the familiar sausage and bacon of Western breakfast. For the sweet tooth, nothing beats a slice of cheese cake in the morning to get the day sweeter. Jugs of fruit juices kept cool in crushed ice maintained its freshness. Nothing beats the cool sweet liquid rushing down your throat after a hearty meal. Coffee aficionados may love the roast prepared by The Bungalow for a refreshing morning. My choice of breakfast - a western style with mixture of sausages, hash browns, bacon, ham and a foaming cup of cappuccino. Top that with a cool sea breeze and you have the perfect morning. The bacon, ham and sausages were well cooked to a perfection, and I loved the cheese cake they offered. Dessert in the morning may sound odd, but it soothed my sweet tooth. The fragrant fried hash brown crunched heartily in my mouth. To make my morning better, I indulged myself in warm cup of cappuccino, drafts of its fragrance enveloping me.
