Jaya Bintang Cafe, Bukit Mertajam – An Affordable Cafe

There have always been a lot of coverage on affordable and delicious breakfast in Penang island. However, I believe there are even more of this kind in mainland Penang. One of it is at Bukit Mertajam and the one that I visited is Jaya Bintang Cafe located at Jalan Sungai Rambai. For more details on the food and the place, please watch the video below:

The menu and price list of the food:


Jaya Bintang is also known to have colourful wrapper for its nasi lemak. Unfortunately on the day I visited they only had red wrapper, else there would be green and blue wrappers as well.


The nasi lemak (RM1.50) was slightly spicy and sweet. It is the perfect Malaysian breakfast.


Coffee is their main focus here as Jaya Bintang has their own company that supplies coffee powder.


Toast with soft boiled eggs – RM3. This dish gave the perfect combination of soft and crunchy texture.


Nasi Lemak Special (RM4.50) – A complete set of nasi lemak with veggie, chicken rendang and a sunny side up egg which is only served from 11 am onwards .


Overall, this place serves affordable and delicious breakfast. It is slightly difficult to get parking during weekends. The coffee here is great as they prepare their own coffee powder.

The Bungalow Lone Pine Hotel, Batu Ferringhi – Crabby Claws Fresh From The Ocean

Savouring a fresh catch is always a great enjoyment especially when it is fresh from the ocean. However, eating seafood with cutlery is always the challenging part, especially prawns with shells on. In restaurants, if you are sitting with a group of people who uses cutlery to peel shells from seafood while you are the one using hands, you will be the odd one.


Fortunately, this awkward situation will not happen at The Bungalow at Lone Pine Hotel as it is now serving Crabby Claws Seafood, whereby guests will be able to enjoy seafood with hands.

Details of the delicious-looking seafood and The Bungalow’s surrounding are shown in the video below.

A glimpse of the fresh catch.


Staff were preparing preparing grilled fish in front of guests.


There are three types of sauce to pair with the seafood:

  1. Indonesian Curry
  2. Kam Heong
  3. Sweet & Sour


For those who love hot and spicy, you can opt for Kam Heong or Indonesian Curry. If you are afraid of spiciness, there is always the ‘sweet and sour’ sauce for you.


My personal preference is the Indonasian Curry, in which it was not too spicy and packed with aroma of herbs.


The grilled fish “Ikan Bakar” was packed with aroma and tasted fresh. It came with with a dipping sauce which paired very well with the fish.


The best moment is to enjoy good food while looking at sunset.


This is the way to truly enjoy seafood with hands, of course plastic gloves are provided.

Overall, the catches were fresh. The Indonesian Curry really spiced up my day. The Kam Heong and Sweet & Sour sauces still have room for improvement.

Special thanks to Patrick Soon for the beautiful photos.
