Ginseng Wu Long Tea RM8 per pot, instead of charging per person they charge per pot as this high quality tea are different from Pu Er, Tie Guan Yin…etc. Ginseng Wu Long Tea has very smooth texture and strong after taste, it is not too bitter as well. RM8 for 5 of us consider quite cheap.

Tai Tong Dim Sum Restaurant Cintra Street Georgetown Penang

Tai Tong Dim Sum is one of the famous Dim Sum restaurant in Penang and the restaurant has been established for many years, it is still one of the favorite restaurant for local people and now tourist but personally I visit this restaurant not more than 5 times, why? because no parking, it is extremely hard to find parking spot in town area and honestly the food quality is not as good anymore. Their food overall quite salty and we drink a lot of water after that.
