K-Pot, Prima Tanjung – Home Cooked Korean Food

In Asia, when we say K-Pop Music, naturally we are referring to Korean Pop Music. When we say K-Drama, again that means Korean Drama. Therefore, it seems like a default when people say they love K-Food, meaning to say they like Korean Food. When there is a food known as K-Pot, of course it is referring to dishes that are cooked in a Korean pot.

There is one K-Pot in Tanjung Tokong and another in Tanjung Bungah respectively. Both K-Pots are owned by the same owners but run by different branch managers. The one at Prima Tanjung at Tanjung Tokong is more homey and cozy, while for the Tanjung Bungah branch it is more commercialized and restaurant-feel. Therefore, if you are planning for a gathering at K-Pot, be sure to mention the location of the outlet.

Big Gin Na FamilyRestaurant,

It is not easy for young kids to sit down quietly during meal time. As parents it is common to face this situation when dining out. Either you will need a pacifier (phone or tablet) to calm them down or you might forcefully make them quiet by raising your voice while at the same time getting stares from the rest who might think that you are a bad parent.

In order to let the kids run around and yet not to disturb the other diners, a good idea is to have a kids’ play area in a restaurant. One of the very few restaurants which has this great concept is Big Gin Na Family Restaurant.

Japanese Restaurant Sushi Kappo Miyasaka, Pulau Tikus – Authentic Yet Affordable Japanese Food

There are a lot of Japanese restaurants in Penang which are very famous and popular, with just a stone’s throw you definitely will find at least one Japanese restaurant. However, if you are talking about authentic, reasonable yet not too crowded, there is only a handful of them. The authenticity of Japanese food is not judged by others but the Japanese’s customers themselves. It is like a Penangite knows which stall serves the best Penang Laksa. The restaurant that I have discovered to have a cosy ambience with authentic and reasonable Japanese food is Sushi Kappo Miyasaka.

The location of the restaurant is not difficult to find, the only problem is on the one-way traffic system which will take you to a big turning. For those that come from Penang Bridge, you will need to drive through Jalan Masjid. You will have to pass by Jalan Utama. At this road on your right junction, look for Jalan Brown and turn into it. Keep driving until you  reach a T-junction then follow the one way street which is to your right. Keep driving for another 200 meters and look on your right where you can see Maybank. Restaurant Sushi Kappo Miyasaka is just a few doors away.
