Great Dining In Penang - Book

This lovely Island of Penang is famous for its hawker food - Laksa, Hokkien Mee, and Char Kuey Teow - to name but a few. However, as this book will demonstrate, Penang has far more culinary delights to offer then hawker food alone - far, far more.

The idea of Great Dining started when, as a food writer and restaurant reviewer, people began asking me where they could go to eat something other than Laksa or Char Kuey Teow; where they could go for good western food; or which outlet was big enough to host a large party etc. And it wasn't only visitors to the island who asked, but many Penangites too. It was then that I realised that there wasn't such a guide available - and that we needed one!

So this book was put together not just to answer those questions, but also to give more useful information about eating out in Penang. For example, the Fast Facts panel has been designed as a quick reference to help you make your dining choice - before ringing up to reserve a table.

The author's intention is to reveal information about an outlet, its characteristics and some of the personalities behind it. One man's meat can indeed be another man's poison, so deciding what's good and what's not is really down to individual taste. Although the author sometimes ventures an opinion, you must try the restaurant for yourself to make the ultimate decision.

Penang Seafood Restaurant

The Best Seafood Restaurant In Penang
Pang Hainan Chinese Restaurant

Restaurateur has been Hainanese’s talent since their migration to the South East Asia. Without exception, Mr. Lim See Pang was among the well-known Hainanese cooks after he set the foot at Teluk Bahang, Penang some fifty years ago. He opened a coffee shop named “Ah Pang Café” served toasted bread, hot coffee, cakes etc. it later became the neighborhood’s favorite breakfast and afternoon tea shop.

With the development of the tourism in the area, construction of the Mutiara Hotel during late ‘80s brought in construction workers, who stayed in Teluk Bahang. It led to a demand for meals around the workplace. As such “Ah Pang Café” began to cater the needs, serving quick lunch like fried rice, fried noodles, hot noodle soup, steering its changes to serve more variety.
The progressive changes in “Ah Pang Café” was also contributed by its location being situated on a hill and facing the sea. The geographical attribute attracted tourists as well as local hikers who frequented “Ah Pang Café” for coffee and snacks after their hike. With encouragement of its patrons “Ah Pang Café” began to look into the advantage of being located in a fishing village having a daily harvest of fresh fishes and prawns. It thus began the venture into serving seafood.

For the past ten years, not only Teluk Bahang residents but also tourists have been regular customers of “Ah Pang Café”. Once there was a Singapore tourist, well satisfied with the food served, wrote to a local newspaper on his commentary. Since then many Singaporean came looking for “Ah Pang Café”.
For an upgrade of facilities, two years ago (year 2007), “Ah Pang Seafood Restaurant” relocated to Tanjung Bungah. Without luxurious décor, but based on comfortable surroundings, ambience, and tasty food “Pang (Hainan) Seafood” was established. Although there was no elaborate opening, “Pang (Hainan) Seafood” continued to attract passers-by as well as retained its regular customers from far and near.

Penang Restaurants Western and Italian Cuisine

Little Cottage serves fine and delicious Western and Italian Cuisine. They are located in Penang Island (Pearl of the Orient) in Malaysia. From juicily grilled beef steak to Italian "Marinara" pasta and fragrantItalian mushroom rice, we have much much more variety in our menu to serve you.

Little Cottage Café is here to serve you delicious Western and Italian Cuisine in a cozy, friendly and warm ambience

Little Cottage Café has its humble beginnings in the Summer of 2003 in the City of George Town Penang
In search of a cozy and relaxing place for yummy food to reward yourself with a scrumptious meal at the end of the day started it all… George Town (good old George, as it is also popularly known) is blessed with a rich cultural heritage and varied potpourri of local and international range of delicatessen and delicious food. A gourmet’s delight for all seasons. The English were once here, and so have many others…from far and near...

The founders had a cuppa coffee at a “kopi tiam” (coffee shop) opposite a row of old but beautiful heritage buildings built during the British era. One shop tenant puts up a sign and wants to call it a day… There is a glow in our eyes and the next visit to this empty shop confirms its compactness and coziness. Little Cottage Café was founded....
