Xin Tien Tien Lai Seafood Restaurant

Struggle to find a Chinese restaurant after our hot spring tour at Felda Residence, Sungkai. End up we just turn on GPS and look for nearest restaurant which is 17KM away but no choice as we are too hungry and desperate for food so we just head down to the restaurant located in Bidol, Restaurant Xin Tian Tian Lai.

Tea, nothing to shout about as all restaurant normally use cheap tea leave.

Fu Yong Egg, a mix of vege and meat with egg RM4. Yes, it just RM4 I really can’t believe my eye.

Tau Fu RM12, Tau Fu cook with Ham and dried shrimp, a little bit of spicy. Recommended.

Vegetable RM6, normal.

Dong Po Rou RM13, it doesn’t taste or look like Dong Po Rou as Dong Po Rou suppose to be a lot of fat and oily. This dish is not smooth and hard, not recommended.

Glass Chicken(Po Li Ji) RM13, it taste like sweet and sour chicken. Normal.

Curry Fish Head, a very big fish head cook with curry powder. Fish head is very fresh but curry flavor is not that strong.

Very cheap but normal food, good choice if you hungry during driving on north south highway as this restaurant very close to Bidol toll. After Bidol toll, turn right and it on your left.

Western Food at Strada

*Update: This restaurant has moved to 26Q Codrington Ave, Pulau Tikus.

Strada was rated one of the best restaurant in Penang and highly recommended by blogger. Taking the opportunity to celebrate my father birthday in Strada and it was a good dining experience.

Good ambient, recommended for couple to enjoy dinner together.
Strada accommodate less than 10 tables hence advance booking is recommended during peak hour.

Some selected dishes are specially recommended but we did not order this pork knuckles, instead we order the other 3 dishes from this special menu.

Ice lemon tea come together with set meal, additional RM17 for each set meal. We took 3 set meal.

Set meal come with drink, fried squid, soup of the day and dessert. First glance I assume it was a fried onion but it was actually squid, together with soup of the day.
Not really appreciate the soup as it was too salty and I not really know what it is.

Barbeque Pork Ribs with Maple Syrup Glaze RM33, pork is tender and barbeque to perfection.
Something special about Strada is they don’t use potato instead replace with sweet potato, which make them unique and combination with pork is surprisingly match.

Grill Chicken Tingh with Rosemary Sauce RM27.50, two piece of drumstick with Rosemary sauce.

Osso Bucco(braised lamb shank) served on butterd Rissoto and grilled local grown vegetables RM38, my experience on good lamb shank is from Secret Recipe but after visit Strada I change my mind. The portion is big and the sauce is really perfect.

Today Special (Garupa Fish) RM33, I hate the fishy smell which make the dish totally a failure. Negative.

Slow Roasted Pork Rib with Herbs RM33, Pork ribs is always nice to eat with extra herbs on top make it even tasty.

Grilled Pork Chop with Rosemary Sauce RM28, cook to medium well. I never know pork can cook like steak which so tender and a little bit raw in middle. It taste almost like steak and extremely delicious. Recommended.

Total of 6 main dishes, very good food presentation for all dishes.

Finally, our dessert Cheese Cake. Marble Cheese and New York Cheese cake.

No doubt Tiramisu is what I am waiting for, no disappointment as it was the second best Tiramisu I ever tasted. Top with a lot chocolate powder and soft inside. Perfect.

Total of RM273.90 for 6 pax is consider reasonable and good dining experience.

Chef’s Delights Western Food

Chef’s Delight Western Food is highly recommended by my friend hence we took the 2 hour lunch time to drive so far just to try it out.
Chef’s Delight Western Food located inside Sin Hup Aun Kopitiam which located just next to Pulau Tikus market.
Very easy to get parking as big parking lot just opposite, but hard to get table in kopitiam as it very pack with people and hawker stall.

Chef’s Delight Western Food

Chefs’ Delight Menu, overall the price is reasonable.

While waiting for the chef to prepared our food, fill my stomach with Curry Puff RM1.50.

Full of potato and a small piece of chicken meat, a little bit of spicy and sweet.

My Chicken Gordon Blue RM8.50, a piece of drumstick with cheese and ham inside, fries and small portion of salad.

The pieces of ham inside taste like sausage to me, anyhow Chef is generous as you can see the thickness of ham and amount of cheese inside chicken drumstick.
Drumstick is tender with the right amount of flour fried to golden color, it is very delicious.

Chief Chicken Special RM6.50, Chicken meat cut into pieces with some sauce, salad and fries. According to my friend is just normal nothing to shout about.

Chicken Chop, nothing special.

Overall, my Chicken Gordon Blue is good but not for my friend order. Next visit going to try Port Gordon Blue, it look to be interesting.

Baby Back Ribs at Tony Roma’s Mid Valley

Tony Roma’s pretty famous in KL but too bad it doesn’t have branch in Penang. Hopefully they will open one in Penang soon.

Our drink

Start with complimentary bread and butter.

Tony’s Sampler RM39.90, A trio of appetizers – Red Hot Buffalo Wings and signature Onion Loaf matched with Bleu cheese dressing, salsa, sour cream and house BBQ dipping sauce.

Onion Loaf is very big portion, and surprisingly the onion is crunchy and juicy, the thickness of onion almost 5mm. Buffalo Wings is spicy and salty, not so nice.

The Original Baby Back Ribs RM60.90, Basted with TR’s Original or your choice of sauce.
It look small but the meat make you total full, unfortunately in Malaysia they don’t serve pork instead replace with beef.
Beef ribs grill with TR original sauce, sweet sauce and the beef ribs is very tender
According to my friend, in Singapore they server pork ribs, which sound more attractive.

Spaghetti portion RM31.90 is too big, we only manage to finish half of it.

Overall recommended restaurant, always remember to order less as the portion is way too big even I have big stomach also can’t finish.
