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.

Eld’s 22 is the latest new old restaurant in Gurney Paragon, Penang. You might wonder why KayaButter say that Eld’s 22 is a new old restaurant. Previously, this restaurant is called as Jarvie’s and the restaurant changed owner and the new owner decides to retain the same old restaurant but renamed it over his son’s name with Eld’s 22. Of course, the name is short-formed. 🙂 Fret not as the famous ramen burger introduced by Jarvie’s is still in the menu.

The place is very packed during lunch hours. It will be quite hard to find parking spaces also. Many of them do illegal parking in front of the shop. There are some legal parking lots behind the shop. You need to drive further around 500m and make a U turn and drive into the morning market area.
