Men’s Kitchen, Lebuh Armenian – Tastefully Durian Delight

For durian lovers, the usual months of durian season in May – July will not be sufficient to cater for their huge cravings. I used to be one of them who will hunt for great durians everywhere and like any other durian lovers I can eat a plate of plain white rice served with fresh durians. For health reasons, I am cutting down the intake of durians. But this does not stop me from trying out food made out of fresh durians. There is a new shop at Lebuh Armenian inside Yap Kongsi which is very niche in the market as it incorporates durian into its desserts and pastries.


The shop is known as Men’s Kitchen. This is the place that focuses on food and drinks made out of durian.


The reason that this shop is called Men’s Kitchen is due to the kitchen is a “all-men show”. The ladies will be serving the customers instead.

Introducing Penang Famous Food, Peanut Barley Candy (Part 10) – With Tripvid


Peanut Barley Candy is an old school snack which is not that common nowadays. The peanut barley candy is made of some crushed peanuts, sugar and some vegetable oil. A lot of younger generation kids do not know the original name of this snack. The correct name of this candy is actually known as “ark am” 鸭颈 (literally translated as duck neck) due to the shape of the candy resembles a duck’s neck. It is also commonly known as “Gong Theng” in Hokkien. The candy is crunchy and sweet on the inside and wrapped with a thin layer of soft and savory popiah skin, all of these are handmade locally in Penang Chowrasta Market.

Fonterra Anchor Say Cheese Product Launch

As we know Fonterra is famous for its dairy products, one of it is Anchor butter. The butter is found in almost every supermarket in Malaysia. But do you know that they have Anchor Cream Cheese too? Recently, Frontera has launched its second phase of Anchor Say Cheese campaign which introduces an exclusive assortment of Anchor-branded desserts, a first of its kind in market. Together with its selected bakery partners, Fonterra continues to delight customers with limited-edition desserts created by Fonterra’s own in-house patisserie chefs using top quality real butter, cream cheese, milk and cream from its highly popular Anchor range.

Another thing to be emphasize is all the dairy products from Fonterra are freshly imported from New Zeland where there will not be any artificial processes nor preservatives added to the products. Anchor’s signature creations are available from now until December 2016 and the partners include Bread History in Penang, The Bakers Hut in Seri Manjung, Born n Breads in Ipoh, Patisfrance and Yeast Pastry in Malacca, Veluxe Cake House in Skudai, Fung Seng in Muar, Port View Euro Bread in Kota Kinabalu, Taka in Kuching and Hot Cross Bun in Miri.


Among the Chef’s Signature Series using Anchor products are:

First Love – RM3.20  The pastry which has been coated with brown sugar. The filling consists of cream cheese with a hint of lemon zest and brown sugar which is exclusively from Anchor’s chef secret recipe. This is one of my favorites. The cream cheese which has been mixed with brown sugar and lemon zest balances up the richness of the cheese while the fragrant and slightly sourish of the lemon zest has made the cheese more appetizing. The addition of brown sugar is also not as sweet as it sounds.

Corgi and The Gang, Tanjung Tokong – Dining with Furry Friends

There are not many restaurants in Malaysia which allow pets in their restaurants, especially those that adhere to the religion and enforcement rules. For pet lovers, it is a very difficult situation as they treat pets as their own children a.k.a “fur kids” and love to bring them around wherever they go. If you have a fur kid and are staying in Penang, fear not! There is a new pet-friendly cafe which allows you to bring your pet(s) to dine in the cafe.


The new cafe is located at Jalan Mount Erskine with the name “Corgi & The Gang”. Apparently this shop is also a pet shop and hotel where you can board your pets here when you are out of town or send your pets for grooming and such. At the same time, this place has also been setup as a cafe for customers to dine and chill while cuddling with the furry friends.

Miam Miam Restaurant, Gurney Paragon – House of Japanese & French Cuisine

Many people have mistaken that Miam Miam is under the same roof as Franco as both outlets offer almost the same food and drinks on their menu. In reality, they have no connection to each other in business terms and they are separate entities. A little bit of background on Miam Miam, it established its first outlet in Penang and then expanded to several outlets in Singapore. I still remember my first visit to Miam Miam was back in 2013.


My favorite back then was their famous Iced Matcha Latte with Softee and my favorite food was French Lobster Bisque Pasta. Until today, I still can remember the taste of these food as they tasted unique and delicious. These old favourites are still available at Miam Miam today, but it has also come out with a list of new and improvised menu to cater the need of diners.
