Via Pre Italian Restaurant, Weld Quay – Quiet and Cozy Italian Breakfast

My job requires me to travel frequently to outstation and I was also stationed out of town for some period. A quiet and peaceful weekend to spend with my family is a great weekend for me. Since Penang has many little cafe’s to offer for breakfast and coffee, I always hunt for a good place to have my Sunday breakfast/brunch with my family in town. There are a few nice places where we can have a quiet and cozy environment for breakfast. One of them is Via Pre Italian Restaurant.

Via Pre Italian Restaurant is known for its fine, authentic and exclusive Italian food. However, little did we know that this place also provides a reasonable and delightful breakfast everyday. Via Pre is very easy to be spotted. If you are driving from Penang Bridge to town area via Jelutong Expressway (a.k.a Jalan Tun Dr. Lim Chong Ewe), drive all the way down until you reach Penang Jetty. Just opposite the Jetty, you will see a heritage building with the signboard, Via Pre.

Glow Hotel, Zest Bar Cafe – Show Your Gratitude on Father’s Day

The term “Father” is easier to pronounce than being one ourselves. Father will usually be the second one to be remembered in the family after mother. This is because traditionally mothers are usually the one who look after the kids, while fathers are working hard outside to be the bread winner of the family. Father’s day was not celebrated or made known at all until recent years it is celebrated on the third week of June.

As an appreciation and gratitude to all the fathers, Glow Hotel in Penang is treating Daddies to their decadent lunch menu during this coming Father’s Day from 11:30am to 5:00pm, 15th June 2014.

Javrie’s Restaurante & Pizzeria, Gurney Paragon – The Unique Ramen Burger

Whenever I mentioned I am going to have Ramen Burger, I would get surprise expressions. Either they thought I was too hungry and craving for food which made me order both ramen and burger at the same time, or they thought that I had a language problem. If I had to rephrase the sentence again, I would still say that I am going to have Ramen Burger. So far, there is only place that you can get this unique food in Penang. The place is at Javrie’s Restaurante & Pizzeria at Gurney Paragon.
