The Oldest Nasi Kandar in Penang @ Hameediyah Restaurant, Campbell Street, Georgetown, Penang!

Coming back with a bang after being closed for a month for renovation, Hameediyah is set to redefine and raise the bar of Indian Muslim food and the ambience. On the outside, Hameediyah Restaurant still maintains its rustic and heritage feel but make no mistake, the whole restaurant is now brighter, cleaner, neater and smarter now! The floors, the walls, the toilets and the kitchens are way cleaner than last time.

Old Green House Coffee Shop @ Burma Road, Georgetown!

KayaButter goes town area or what the locals used to call Georgetown, Tanjung to buy a new dog food for our Pomeranian, Cupid. The pet supplies shop is located at the corner of Jalan Talipon called Puppy Love Saloon. Too bad that it is closed at the time we reached there, near 8pm. Since we are in town area, we decide to go to Old Green House coffee shop for our favourite bah kut teh aka pork rib soup and chicken porridge.

The Alley Cafe @ Stewart Lane, Georgetown, Penang!

Kaya was invited by Tour Directions to review one of the famous cafes in Georgetown called The Alley. They are famous for their churros and the one-time craze which Kaya feels that it is getting lesser and lesser that is the cronut, a combination of croissant and donut. Kaya heard from one of the bosses that two pieces of cronut sells for US$30++. That’s how ‘powderful’ (meme) the cronut is. Finally, Kaya get to try it! 🙂

[Invited Review] Folks Cafe @ Lebuh Acheh, Georgetown, Penang (12) 5

[Invited Review] Folks Cafe @ Lebuh Acheh, Georgetown, Penang!

There is a new cafe in the heart of Georgetown, the UNESCO Heritage area called Folks Cafe. Folks Cafe is co-operating with Flash Back Guest House to provide the guests with breakfast, lunch & dinner. Folks Cafe is operated by two partners. They currently do not have any signboard yet. So, for the mean time, once you see the Flash Back signboard, you have reached Folks Cafe. As you drive from Cannon Street towards Acheh Street, turn left when you reach the T-junction. Folks Cafe is at your right. Find a parking space as soon as you turn right or you can try to find parking end of Cannon Street. Finding a parking space here is quite a challenge and expect to walk for a short distance if you can’t find parking near it.
