Sawadee Krap! This is the month whereby many people will get wet as the Thais celebrate Songkran Festival. In conjunction with this celebration, Eastin Hotel Penang is organising a Thai-theme buffet called Songkran Sawadee Pee Mai featuring many mouth-watering Thai delicacies. Let’s start with the Soups & Appetisers.
Here we are again for Glow Hotel Penang’s Zest Bar Cafe review of its new Thai set lunch menu and ala carte menu. Last year, we blogged about its Father’s Day promotion. You can check our blogpost here. The management has revamped the artwork on the walls of its hotel and Zest Bar Cafe. The cafe looked very funky and young with it latest design.
Equatorial Hotel has been upping its offers and after the recent upgrade of its Coffee Garden restaurant to Nada Lama Restaurant (Read our blogpost about its spanking new restaurant here. The design is very nice and the spread of food is great!), it is introducing another new offer which is Sunset Jazz by the Poolside at Nadaba. There has been many on-going renovation to make Equatorial Hotel modern and contemporary and with this new offering, it will definitely attract even more patrons for its hotel. 🙂
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! 🙂
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! 😛
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. 🙂
Rejoice, Bayan Baru and nearby residents! There is a new and high quality cafe opening at Elit Avenue, Bayan City, a four-storey commercial park similar to e-Gate. As many cafes are mushrooming in Georgetown area, it is refreshing to have a cafe opening outside of Georgetown area. It is called St. Presso Coffee and run by a very committed and dedicated boss.

It’s that time of the year again. Still cracking head on what to buy this coming Chinese New Year for your parents, in-laws or your loved ones? Don’t wish to buy the usual CNY hampers or some chicken essence? Well, you can buy awarding-winning Gartien’s 2015 Lunar New Year limited edition pineapple cakes. Oh ya, Gartien has moved to a new shop at Penang Road instead of the Macalister Road’s shop. It is very near to the famous Kek Seng coffee shop.
