1 little stall @ Lengkuk Nipah

Located along Lengkuk Nipah (Taman Lip Sin), just right before you turn into the car park of Super Tanker food court is a small little stall which has everything you can think of eating! From 'koay teow thng' to 'tomyam noodle' to 'herbal soup noodle', this stall is visible from its bright yellow name tag. Just beside the stall is one which sells soya bean drink and soya bean curd.
tomyam noodle with fish-RM5 (sour but not spicy enough)
plain soup noodle with fish and minced meat-RM6 (nice plain soup)
koay teow thng-RM3
soya bean with black sugar-RM0.90 per glass

There were about 10 tables altogether with 5 underneath shade for shelter against hot sun and rain. This place is nice for a quick meal. You probably would not want to sit too long inhaling all the smoke coming from vehicles travelling just right beside you.

Blue Reef Fish & Chips @ Straits Quay

The latest new happening place is what is known as Straits Quay. An n-storey building which adapts the Victorian style of architecture, Straits Quay also cater to residential area. It is also similar to that of Clarke Quay in Singapore. Shopping complex is still very quiet as most of the shoplots are still not rented.
They have a lot of dining places opened though since the opening of Straits Quay.
I made my first dining debut at Blue Reef in conjunction of a birthday celebration for a friend. I must compliment the services I was given and the promptness of dish serving.

its menu
a built-in fake aquarium
on-the-table dippings
the 1L jar of sky juice given to us by a thoughtful waitress who kept reminding us to drink more water because of the fries we had (FOC)
french fries-RM6 (very big bowl for the price)
grilled salmon-RM25 (make sure you tell the waiter how cook you want the salmon to be)
vegetarian pizza-RM18
vegetarian pasta with cream sauce-RM17 (highly recommended dish)

With affordable prices and big serving portion, Blue Reef is definitely a place recommended for all young and old, single or with family.
By the way, this place also serves wine and thus would be suitable for celebrations of special occasions as well.
The total bill adds on to a 10% service charge and somehow for the portion we are getting, we still think that this place is not an expensive place.

Soju @ Penang Times Square

Recently celebrated a friend's birthday at Soju, Penang Times Square. It is more a popular place to clubbing and drinking. But they also offer a variety of food as well.
For those of you who don't really know where, it is just located at the ground floor of Penang Times Square. If you are driving along Jalan Dato Keramat from Gama Supermarket, it is actually visible to you.

chicken in mushroom sauce
barbeque chicken
yaki soba

There was not many people who actually went to Soju for eating purposes. The food would be rated on average only as well. So, perhaps, i would not go back again.
Anyway, it is no harm for those first timers to give it a try, just to experience the ambience.
Til then, happy eating!! ^^
