Makan - Makan || Joez Coconut, KL Sentral

One of the place listed to visit in Penang adalah Joez Coconut.. received good reviews.. Favourite addalah jeli kelapa.. since I am super crazy over jeli kelapa.. kirenye must go to place la.. but since kesuntukan masa kat Penang and takut nak suggest to Dude sebab jeli kelapa je kan?? so terpaksa dilupakan saja..

Tapi from the reads, Joez Coconut ni ada bukak kiosk kat KL Sentral.. hahaha.. mesti pegi!

Adam dengar je nak gi KL Sentral dah excited sebab dah membayangkan naik LRT (he is super crazy pasal train).. sampai KL SEntral dah lunch time so makan lah dulu kan?? kate lapar..

After that misi mencari kiosk Joez Coconut.. pusing punye pusing rupenye salah bace plan KL Sentral.. finally jumpe jugak dekat area CIMB and Maybank..

The guy was one friendly guy.. die bagitau ape menu and explain sket.. so we tried their famous coconut jelly & coconut shake.. ade lagi satu avocado coconut smoothies kot.. but rase macam pelik kot ada avocado tuh..

The coconut shake tu sedap sebab die belak kelapa tu fresh and take the juice and then mix with cream and dates.. and blended.. memang yummy.. bits of dates tu buat rase lagi yummy.. jelly? pon sedap.. kire berbaloi the price sebab dapat makan one whole buaha kelapa.. with the isi sekali.. so my next craving of jelly kelapa I would head here..

Makan - Makan || Assam Laksa Sentap, Ipoh

Traffic jam on the way balik memang la tersangat teruk.. up till kene exit at Ipoh semata-mata untuk ke toilet.. R&R?? fail!

Lagipon Dude memang need the rest from the stress.. from Butterworth around pukul 2.. and we only manage to reach Ipoh at 10 malam.. bayangkan the stress??

Lepas dah exit tu, cari pulak tempat makan.. memang dah lapar sangat2.. pusing-pusing jumpe Mydin Mall yang baru bukak tu but that is not an option.. so carik a decent resturant around area tu and stumble upon this restaurant..

It is a decent restaurant with lots of choices.. tapi kitorang order masakan panas laa.. would stop again to try other food..

orange juice suam
kuey tiaw kungfu

Service : good  
Atmosphere :a normal restaurant but they need to install a good ventilation because whenever they are cooking the whole restaurant shrouded with smoke..

Makan - Makan || Ais Tingkap, Penang

Another makan spot in Penang.. tapi this time dessert sport.. more like a drink.. So pergi la kitorang berpanas-panas nak try Ais Tingkap

According to my reading, Ais Tingkap got the name sebab dulu-dulu air ni dijual from tingkap.. so jadila ais tingkap

Sekali tengok ais tingkap ni is just a normal air sirap selasih.. tapi it is really refreshing.. in my reads.. ais tingkap ni is a normal air sirap dengan biji selasih with shaved ice.. then ditambah air kelapa and isi kelapa and also getah anggur.. truly refreshing masa tengah panas..

Kitorang order jugak cendol just to give it a try.. tapi i don't think it is the same macam the famous cendol tu..

Lebuh Tamil (beside Chowrasta Market), Georgetown 10100 PENANG

Penang Street Wall Art, Georgetown

Terjumpe blog review pasal Penang Street Wall Art masa tengah buat list tempat makan kat Penang.. Suggest kat Dude buat keje gila pegi cari all the Art.. kirenye exercise.. jalan kaki.. muahahaha.. tipu sangatla kan.. Dude kate drive je la..

Kitorang based on map yang ada dalam one of the blog.. tapi tak dapat pegi semua tempat sebab keadaan jalan yang sempit tak sesuai kete lalu.. So pengajaran.. nak carik Penang Street Wall Art sila jalan kaki or sewa basikal.. and please.. pretty please start early.. and be prepared untuk berpanas-panasan..

So these are what we found..

Makan - Makan || Restoran Kapitan, Penang

Dude suggested that we try one of the restaurant that I've listed (yerp! I made a list) for lunch.. I guess he's tired of eating Restoran Yasmeen's nasi kandar.. ehehehe.. so the nearest is Restoran Kapitan in Chulia Street.. Following the direction from waze, we manage to find Chulia Street but couldn't find #93 since waze couldn't detect that address.. so we went through the street couple of times before finding the restaurant.. it is situated towards the end of Chulis Street if you were from Penang Street..

the restaurant

Luckily there were a space to park infront of one of the shops nearby.. so we walk a bit.. I don't think we'll get that lucky again next time.. (according to a colleague of mine who went there couple of days after me, he didn't get to eat at Kapitan because he couldn't find a parking space.. not even somewhere near..)

24 hours

The restaurant was quite full at that time.. but there were a table somewhere at the back of the restaurant.. on the way to our table we had to pass the grilling counter and I can see that the cook is grilling a whole lot of chicken.. I guess it is to be served together with the briyani since the tandoori are prepared at the front of the shop..

waiting patiently

We were seated quite a while before somebody came to us to take the order.. that was even after Dude called for their attention a couple of times.. we order cheese naan set with tandoori chicken and a claypot lamb briyani (since we already ordered the tandoori chicken).. I wanted to try their almond milk since I read a couple of reviews suggesting the drink.. but it was still not ready.. too bad..

the cheese

The briyani came first and Adam was hooked.. but the lamb was to small of a portion for the rice.. then came the cheese naan and tandoori chicken.. I fell in love.. the chicken was moist inside not the usual dry tandoori that I usually have.. and the cheese naan was crunchy and soft altogether.. the naan was serve together with dhaal.. but I had my naan and tandoori sandwiched together with a dip of the green tandoori sauce.. I was in my own world.. it was not enough for us that Dude ordered another cheese naan..

they even have deliveries
the happy customer

So.. we found a new place to eat in Penang.. yeahh..

the box
briyani chicken
Ouhh.. but we did't wait long for our second visit.. we had the food tapau the next day for bekalan balik KL.. muahahahhaha.. but instead of lamb we ordered the briyani chicken.. and oh mann!! the chicken I tell you.. was like.. yummmss! Adam finished 3/4 of the briyani rice and the chicken.. so me and Dude shared the naan..

So I would definitely suggest to everybody to give Restoran Kapitan a try if you were in Penang..

Restoran Kapitan, Chulia Street, Penang
93, Lebuh Chulia, Georgetown, 10200 PENANG  
Tel : 04 - 264 1191 
Hours : 24 hours (daily) 

I Say  

Price : around RM25 for a claypot briyani and a set of cheese naan and tandoori chicken with an additional cheese naan  
Food : the claypot nasi briyani chicken is love love love.. and tandoori chicken and cheese naan is to die for.. so go figure! 
Service : serving the food was fast but its hard to get their attention for an order  
Atmosphere : a normal mamak ambience 
Cleanliness : fair but it would help if they get to clean their floor once in a while 
Parking : park at the spaces near the restaurant

3rd Day Syawal 1434H

3rd Day Syawal kitorang dah bercuti-cuti.. Tapi only after we finished beraya la.. Around lunch time kitorang dah gerak ke Penang.. the journey went smoothly.. and sampai Cititel Penang just nice untuk check-in.. But after I check-in only they told that my room is not yet ready.. since abah & mak pon belom sampai so we waited at the lobby..

on the way from Taiping to Penang

Then terase lapar.. so bergerak la ke Sup Hameed with hope that die bukak.. so unlucky that die tutup..  So I decided to go back to the hotel lobby to check for our room staus and wait for abah and mak while Dude went to Restoran Yasmeen for nasi kandar..back at the lobby.. our room is still not ready.. a couple of minutes after that abah & mak plus my sister arrived.. she check-in and try to get us a connecting room.. so nice of the girl that she upgraded us and we get a side by side room.. maybe kesian kot because I've waited for alost an hour but the room is still unavailable..

not so patiently waiting for the room to be ready

Masuk bilik.. Dude pon balik from makan and he brought back 2 packets of nasik.. one for our room and another for mak & abah's room.. ahahhaha,, kenyang sangat hi-tea with nasik kandar..

After that ..freshen up and rested.. and promise to go out for dinner at Gurney Drive.. Situ lagi satu.. jem yang teramatnya.. and everytime we go through that situation mesti keluar ayat "lepas ni taknak dah datang penang time holiday or school holiday" tapi after that datang jugak lagi time holiday..

Makan pon tak berapa sebab banyak yang still tutup for raya.. makan in rush lagipon sebab Dude nak tengok Malaysia vs. Barcelona.. so malam tu memang takde gamba sebab makan dalam stress pon same.. berebut tempat duduk..

That night ended early for me and Adam.. penat sangat kot..
