Zest Bar Cafe @ Glow by Zinc, Penang

Sometimes I do crave for Thai food, especially when I think about spicy and sour tomyum, delicious green curry, Pad Thai and many more.
Now Zest Bar has launch their latest Thai a la carte menu specially caters to people who loves Thai food, and it is available all day including lunch time and dinner time.

GLOW Hotel was originally from Thailand, and therefore Zest Bar is rather different and special too where they offer Thai food instead of international dishes or buffet.

GLOW Hotel by Zinc can be easily spotted when you pass through Macalister Road, which is also one of the busiest road in Penang famous for hawker food.

Kai Curry Bar @ Jalan Phuah Hin Leong, Penang

Japanese food is my all time favourite, whether is it Sashimi, Bento, Sushi, Curry and many more.
This time, I'm really happy that I get to try some Japanese Curry in a newly opened restaurant in Penang.

Kai Curry Bar is a newly opened Japanese restaurant that only serves Japanese Curry alone with some side dishes.
All the curry are homemade by the lady boss herself instead of those instant Japanese curry and therefore, you may find the curry here totally different with what we usually had in other Japanese restaurants in Penang.

Before you scroll down, just a short introduction to the shop owner, Magdalene Chow.
She was a teacher in Penang. And slowly moving into culinary business as it is her favourite hobby, which is to cook.
She's mother for Kai, which the name Kai Curry Bar was named after her son. 

Magdalene emphasises on healthy food and lifestyle, which means her food are also good for children too. 
All the ingredients were prepared by Magdalene herself, including the curry powder. She would go to the market and purchase all those spices and mixes her own curry powder instead of using instant packing stuff. Even the breadcrumbs that she uses to fry food are prepared and blended by she herself. 
So Kai Curry Bar would be your healthy choices and also the Japanese Curry here would taste different from those we have tried at other Japanese restaurants. 

Kai Curry Bar is located at Jalan Phuah Hin Leong, 
directly opposite Union Primary School of Burmah Road. 

It could be a little parking issues around this area, 
but customers may park infront of Kai Curry Bar if there are space available.

Wang Chao Chinese Cuisine @ Pekaka Square, Penang

There are many type of traditional dishes for the Chinese during our reunion dinner.
Lou Sang, Poon Choi and many more.

Thanks to Willy, I've got the chance to savoured another great traditional dish for Chinese.
Buddha Jumps Over The Wall or Buddha's Temptation, which is known as 佛跳墙 in mandarin is a luxurious dish that consists of expensive ingredients like shark's fin, abalone, scallops, sea cucumber, ginseng and many more. A dish that is very rich in calcium and protein.

Wang Chao is located at Pekaka Square, on the building beside Penang Tesco Extra.
If you know where Talk Talk Wine House is, the you will be able to find Wang Chao

They also served Cocomas Coconut Water on that night, it was quite good and tasted exactly like the fresh pandan coconut water.
