Zi Zai Restaurant 自在饭店 @ Paya Terubong, Penang

Well, there was some food hunt with Steven Goh two weeks ago.
We also dropped by at Zi Zai Restaurant for some food hunt as well.
Our Hock Chai Dai Lou prepared some nice dishes for us.

They are available for Lunch and Dinner.

We went there during lunch time, there were some crowd as it was a Sunday.

This dish requires one day of advance booking. It was one of the traditional dishes from Korea.
Where back to during world war 2, soldiers are usually cook everything in a pot and eat together.
The ingredients are kimchi, ham, luncheon meat, cheese sausage, cheese, carrot and etc.
Must try!

Stir Fried Sambal La La
This dish is not so spicy but rather appetizing. Cooking seafood in spicy recipes is always a good match.
The fresh lala is just so chewy that I could finish this whole plate!
Must try!

Stir Fried Bean Sprouts with Salted Fish
This is always my favourite dish when I'm having lunch or dinner in a restaurant.
Loving the crispiness of the bean sprouts, and it is just perfect with my favourite salted fish!

Fish Fillet with Claypot Tofu
This dish is so big portion that Steven and I could not finish it.
The fish fillets are big pieces and fresh. Definitely worth your money! 

Stingray Curry
(Market Price)
Tumis curry is always my favourite, especially adding the curry into my rice and eat together with the smooth stingray meat. Well don't forget about lady finger which is so smooth and tasted perfectly with the curry too!
Highly recommended!

Asam Prawns
Asam is something that can make people feel appetizing, though it is kinda sour.
Cooking it with prawns is a perfect combination, made me sucking all the sauce out from the prawn shells.
Highly recommended!

Chilli Stir Fried Egg
The owner specifically want me to mention about this dish, saying that this is the dish that missed by all Ex Chung Ling High School students. Well, this is my first time having it, and kinda fall in love with it.
Must try!
