Tanjung Dawai Chooi Peng Seafood

Chooi Peng Seafood hidden inside one of the fishing village in Bedong, Kedah. The small town name Tanjung Dawai where it located 30km from Sungai Petani, a place known as best seafood in Kedah. Today we are heading toward Chooi Peng Seafood as we heard that they offer very huge size mantis prawn and great seafood.

Baked Crab RM26, baked crab is pretty cheap as the crab has lot of roe in it, that the beauty of crab roe, it gave a very strong freshness taste and flavor even without any additional flavor.

If you ask me worth to travel this far for seafood? I would say NO as the food is just normal, basic baked and steamed is worth to eat but not for those deep fried and stir fried dishes.

Kelang Lama Laksa and Chai Kuih

Kulim Kelang Lama Laksa and Chai Kuih are very famous and according to some people this stall Laksa is the best in Penang (mainland). It not easily to find this shop as it hide inside residential area, what can help you to identified the location is to either follow GPS coordinate I provided or look for SJK(C)Kelang Lama (老火较华文小学)。
I have tried Laksa couple of time before and it not really the best I had but it was well above average.
Chai Kuih is really my favorite and even the Aunty remembers me because I use to buy like 50 – 100 pieces every time.

Tan Kee Roast Duck at Lunas

Lunas is small town located in Kedah and famous for its Roast Duck, the biggest player here definitely is Tan Kee Roast Duck as it house in 3 shop lots which is quite amazing for just selling Roast Duck.

As expected it was spaces and good air flow with a lot of tables, you won’t feel hot inside.
Tan Kee serve various type of Duck, original, crispy skin and plum sauce duck with either rice or porridge, as well as sour soup, vegetable, taufu and egg.

TauFu and Egg marinated with black sauce, TauFu and Egg fully absorbing gravvy but it would be better if the gravvy taste a little bit more strong.

Duck Liver, according to my friend it was quite hard to get this in Penang anymore but with luck this shop is actually selling it.
Duck Liver is not easy to cook, if not cook properly it would be like rubber but Tan Kee make it excellent which is very tender and soft,

Boiled Vegetable with Deep Fried Garlic on top.

Sour Soup, somehow feel that it lack of spicyness, much more better if it taste more sour and spicy.

Roast Duck with Plum Sauce, skin is crispy like Beijing Duck but not lossing it juiciness.
Sadly, the chili sauce is just not up to standard, it don’t have the strong chili sauce flavor but it doesn’t matter as we order Plum Sauce Duck which is favorable and tasty.
I need to mention about the portion, at first we order portion for 3 person but when it serve we are surprise and we did actually request to change to portion of 2 person.

It was quite cheap, RM27 for 3 person for all of the above dishes. Pretty cheap.

Kaede Japanese Food Restaurant Alor Setar Kedah

Kaede Japanese Restaurant, it was the second visit. First visit was about 1 years back, this round visit after our early morning disappointed Hot Air Balloon event in Kedah.
This shop was located in Alor Setar, Kedah.

Early visit to this shop and no other customer yet, only a few tables as the shop lot is quite small.

Orange Juice

Korea style chopstick, not really like this type of chopstick as I just can’t hold my food nicely with it.

Green tea, I would say it just an ice water coz doesn’t have much tea flavor.

Design of the restaurant, take note that this is not the menu as like what most of the Chinese shop like to do to show the hot dishes. Hehe! So don’t order what listed here.

Ordered a Grilled Salmon Set, two pieces of Salmon with Japanese sweet source. Very tasty.

Rate: *** *** */10

Salad together with Salmon set.

Miso Soup

Order a few sushi, saw the pink color? It was actually Sakura, it taste like sweet.

Rate: *** *** **/10

Even more Sakura Sushi, the rice they use is short and small which are Japanese Rice.

Rate: *** *** **/10
