#MakanReview : Food Hunting in Penang

I got another incredible bargain on Air Asia ticket last December.

Return flight ticket to Penang only cost me RM21 👀 

More reason for me and Nazli to travel! 
2017 will be filled with domestic trips thanks to AirAsia 💓

We stayed at The Reef, Batu Feringghi. 
The particular unit is owned by Sime Darby, so I only paid RM60 per night.


Pros : Very nice sea view, clean, good security, huge apartment (2 rooms), A/C in every room, complete with appliances (oven, fridge, iron, stove), swimming pool

Cons : Some of the plasters on the walls are peeling, limited TV channel, A/C in the living room is not working properly

The Reef, Batu Feringghi

The trip to Penang was solely for food hunting. We went to most of the famous eateries. And here's my review.

The service was quite slow (there was a lot of people). Realistically speaking, I felt like it was over-hyped. Roti canai banjir + kari ayam. The rotee is quite hard to chew while the chicken is cooked nicely. We also ordered roti bakar (roti bakar kaya with half boiled eggs on top).
There's better breakfast places in Penang, I would say.

We went here twice. I love the nan cheese tandoori. Husband had the Milani briyani and claypot briyani. Tried the almond milk, too. I felt like everything was good here but their tandoori, is at another level man.

Came here for authentic char kuey tiaw and the famous Hokkien Mee (prawn mee). Oh my God, both are soooo good. My number one pick in Penang! Definitely a must try!

What's Penang without Nasi Kandar.
The prawn was fresh. The curry concoction was tasty.

Both me and Nazli prefer this over Mee Sotong Hameed Pata. It tasted sooo good.

Mee Sotong Hameed Pata
The queue was long. Once we had it, we understand why. It was quite good and Nazli was hooked (until he had Bangkok Lane's)
Rating : 4/5

Hameediyah for the Mutton Murtabak.
As expected, not disappointing. We had it hot, and it was even good on it's own (without curry/ pickled onions)
Rating : 5/5
Sup Hameed (picture from Google)
I'm a big fan of soup dishes and Hameed is one of my favorite. The soup is so flavorful and the meat is tender.
We had the oxtail soup, tendon soup and torpedo soup 🙈

I gained 2 kg after my trip to Penang. 
Totally worth it!
