Asam Belai Restaurant @ Nagore Square, Nagore Road, Georgetown, Penang

A new restaurant has taken over the shophouse that previously houses Money Houz which KayaButter blogged about last time. Two of the owners of Money Houz remained and they reopened the restaurant as Asam Belai. You will find some of the previous design and decoration in the shophouse. The most prominent change will be the signboard which says ‘Asam Belai, seafood in the pot’ for now. This is their 2nd branch as the main branch is somewhere in Jelutong market area

Tasty Congee @ Noodle Wantun Soup 正斗粥面专家 @ Gurney Paragon Mall, Gurney Drive, Penang!

Penangnites are blessed to have another big name in the international F&B industry coming to open their 1st overseas branch in Southeast Asia. Using a simple name, Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop or more commonly known as 正斗 among its patrons, many shoppers will mistake it as another simple and normal-looking Chinese restaurant. It is actually a recipient of Michelin one star and also Bib Gourmand (this award is for restaurants that offer exceptional good food at reasonable prices) for 7 freaking consecutive years, 2009 – 2015, to be exact. That’s awesome, we would say! 😛 So, how does this one-star Michelin restaurant fares? Let’s check it out! 🙂

Money Houz @ Nagore Square, Georgetown, Penang (23) 0

Money Houz @ Nagore Square, Georgetown, Penang!

It looks like the cafe craze is far from over for Penangnites. Another themed cafe sprung out in Nagore Square that focuses on something that is very very important in our lives, MONEY! 🙂 The bosses came up with the Money Houz idea as money is something everyone can relate to. The bosses even believe that if you are having some problem with your $$$, you are encouraged to come over to Money Houz to absorb the ‘qi’ which means hidden power from its cafe to enhance your money power! 😛

Kochabi Double Content @ Penang Times Square, Georgetown, Penang (12) 0

Kochabi Double Content @ Penang Times Square, Georgetown, Penang!

KayaButter always thought that the Taiwanese’s Kochabi that we always frequent at Burmah Road is also available in Penang Times Square. It was until a new management took over the restaurant and retain almost all the same features and menu. It is now called as Kochabi Double Content. It creates new alternative for those who are in love of Taiwanese cuisines other than the Taiwanese Kochabi Delight. We love what the new management have created for their Taiwanese menu with its own twists and characters. 🙂
