By : Chha

This stall may look ordinary but if you go there at peak hour, then you will have to line up and wait in the long long line to order your food. It is just a small stall by the road side  but the people eating there is a lot ! This stall they call it the Nasi Tomato Sungai Nyior, located by the road side of Jalan Sungai Nyior, Butterworth, Penang this stall serve HALAL Nasi Tomato with few other dish like vegetables, eggs, beef curry, chicken curry and cucumber.



The Nasi Tomato Sungai Nyior is tasty. If you are out finding food for lunch, this Nasi Tomato is worth a try. Expensive or not ? hmm .. we will let you judge, the one plate of Nasi Tomato that we order cost us RM7.60, while for a glass of Teh O' Ice is RM1


Total spending for a lunch is RM8.60.

So, how to get there ? It is easy if you are from Butterworth, just look for Jalan Sungai Nyior then you will find the Nasi Tomato stall just opposite the F&N factory.

Pat Pat Chicken Rice @ Telok Bayan Food Court, Penang

By : Chha

Pat Pat Chicken Rice as we know, it is from Thailand. We ate Pat Pat Fried Chicken Rice before many times many years back and ever since then it has become our favorite type of chicken rice. We have been trying to search for Pat Pat Chicken Rice in Penang area but were unable to find it until 2 days ago we stumble upon this Pat Pat Chicken Rice in one of the stall at Telok Bayan Food Court, Penang.



This Pat Pat Chicken Rice is selling at RM 5.00 per plate with the chicken and a plate of white rice. Hmm, though this Pat Pat Chicken Rice does not taste as good as those we tasted before but it does satisfy our craving, haha ! The taste is not very spicy as a Pat Pat Chicken Rice should, even the gravy also taste different. We rate this as slightly below average around 4/10.

ChunCheon Korean Food Restaurant @ Vantage, Penang

By : Chha

Suddenly ! it seems like a lot a lot of people are crazy over the one korean food made famous by one korean food restaurant, what food you ask ? haha .. is Dak Galbi (닭갈비) of course ! Well, we did not go to the that one famous Dak galbi restaurant here in Penang because there were a lot of people lining up outside the restaurant waiting for their turn to dine in. So we decided to go to the other korean restaurant which is just few blocks away. Which we heard, has been operating there for some time now, probably around a year or so. It is 春川 ChunCheon Korean Food Restaurant at Vantage, Penang near to Tasco Tanjong Tokong.



The moment when we walk up the stairs to ChunCheon Korean Food Restaurant we can already smell the nice aroma of the Dak Galbi cooking in ChunCheon Korean Food Restaurant. It makes us feel so hungry. haha ! The business in ChunCheon is not bad either, we still have to line up and wait for around 30 minutes before there is an empty table for us to eat.



The environment of ChunCheon Korean Food Restaurant is nice but probably due to alot of people dining in on the day of our visit, it is really hot in here. The owner even bring out extra portable air cooler for their customer.

The service there is really good, especially from the owner of ChunCheon Korean Food Restaurant but the waiter and waitress service is 'not-bad' only, haha !

We do need to wait for awhile before our food is served as the ChunCheon Korean Food Restaurant is pack with people.


This is the how the Dak Galbi looks like once it arrive at our table.


This is how it looks like when it is fully cooked, haha ! It is RM 26.00 per serving and we must order minimum 2 serving.

This is actually a mixture of stir-fried chicken with onion, cabbage and sweet potato in gochujang (red chilli paste) sauce. It is tasty, the chicken is soft but in small pieces. The gochujang is not very spicy and there is some sweet taste to it. The sweet potato goes well with the cabbage and the mixture is really yummy !

From the menu, you can order other additional dish to mix into the Dak Galbi. There are Fried Rice (RM 6.00), Ramen (RM 6.00), U-Dong (RM 8.00), Rice Cake (RM 6.00) and Cheese (RM 8.00).

Well, honestly we don't know what U-Dong is and we feel weird to add Cheese to a Dak Galbi but we don't want to eat Fried Rice, so we added Ramen and Rice Cake.



The Dak Galbi comes in a set with side dish of vegetables, kimchi and plain water.

Jack & Co @ Icon City, Bukit Mertajam

By : Chha

Jack & Co which was previously located at Jalan Dato Keramat, Penang is now closed. They moved to a new location which is at Icon City, Bukit Mertajam, Penang. It is rather far if you are coming from the previous Jack & Co location at Jalan Dato Keramat.





So there is no need for us piglets to re-intro the concept of Jack & Co again here, if readers would like to know about the concept of Jack & Co or is wondering why there is a container in this cafe then you may view our previous post on Jack & Co.

There are definitely some changes to this place. The seating area are more comfortable now, they no longer use pallet as their tables and chairs, its indoor and more cooling now.

Teriyaki Salmon RM19.90

Grilled Chicken Boneless With BBQ Sauce RM19.90

For the food, it still taste as good as last time. Service improved, the serving time is much faster now.

More More Chicken Rice @ Centrio Avenue, Penang

By : Chha

Craving for more chicken ? this sound so wrong .. haha ! There is this newly open shop in Centrio Avenue selling the well known by Penang people the Asam Soup Chicken Rice. More More Chicken Rice is selling more than just chicken rice, it serves drinks, coffee and noodles also.





There are a lot of tables to cater to a lot of customer at once.




Set meal is also available, which include a plate of noodle and a cup of drink



Now for the taste of the food, it is average. Nothing to complain and nothing special about it. If you ask us, would we go back for a second time ? Yes, we would go back.


But for the Asam Soup, we don't really like it as it does not taste good.


The drinks is ok.

Overall we would rate it as average in terms of food.
