Eat Village Egg in Sungai Petani - Homemade Breakfast

In Sungai Petani, there are lot of homemade food especially for breakfast. I just found this special because it offers half-boil "Village Egg" which I don't know where can find it now except in my hometown Sabah.

Village egg means those eggs are taken from the chicken which raised at open space (not in the cage) and this is usually at village. That's why they call it village egg. :) In Malay, it is called "Kampung" egg which is what the locals call it. In English, it is called "free-range" egg.

Food/Price - 7/10

Village egg is really nice, it really tastes slightly different from those you can buy in grocery store and I believe it is healthy too because no hormone injection? They sell toast too but okay only, not very special as compared to village egg.

They also sell other stuff like dried Noodle and dried Kway Teow. I think the taste is so so only. Maybe just 6/10. :) A good place for simple breakfast in Sungai Petani..

For drink, somehow in Sungai Petani, all are very bad. So, just order if you're thirsty.

Best Wantan Mee in Sungai Petani - Seng Huat Kedai Kopi

Best wantan mee in Sungai Petani is is located at Jalan Bakar Arang and the coffee shop name is Seng Huat. The owner of this wantan mee is called "Ah Niu" - translate to English is "ah cow". :)

A very special and unique thing about this wantan mee is you need to take the number after you make your order and this number will be repeated after it runs over. They have a lot of customers and usually you can wait more than 1 hour. This is the the thing that I don't like here. So to avoid waiting for more than 1 hour, I recommend you to go there before 8 am. :)

Food/Price - 8/10

If compare to the wantan mee in Penang at new cathay cafe, the wantan mee here is less oily but overall I think both are very good. It is just different style. I like both of them. The price is cheap like normal coffee shop that you can find it Sungai Petani.


Drink - 5/10

Drink is suck here. If you not believe, try it out.

Environment/Service - 7/10

Not sure if they can do anything to cook faster because famous and nice wantan mee usually takes longer time to cook? lol

Overall - 7.5/10

I like to come here usually during weekend. Must try if you haven't tried wantan mee in Sungai Petani!

Best Fish Head Mee Hoon Soup in Penang - Joo Leong Cafe

I'm not sure why I used to call this place fish head "Mee Hoon", perhaps the more accurate should be the seafood Mee Hoon/noodle or porridge. But not exactly seafood too because the most delicious food that I like here is the "Tian Ji"(田鸡) or frog. In fact, frog and "Tian Ji" is not the same. "Tian Ji" is one kind of  frogs that lives in paddy field. It looks very ugly in the skins (very rough and not smooth) where else frog's skin is very smooth.

At night, it is mee hoon, noodle soup and porridge. In the morning, the breakfast is very famous too, served with half boiled eggs and famous toasted bread! You still can order boiled eggs and toasted bread at night but for the mee hoon soup, it is only available for dinner.

Food - 9/10

I honestly very enjoy the food here. 2 food that you must try here, the mee hoon soup and the toasted bread. For mee hoon, noodle soup and porridge, you can choose what you want as below.

It serves other stuff too in the morning such as "Nasi Lemak", fried mee hoon/noodle but there are just so so. If you're really want to try more, just try out the half boiled egg which is very famous here. At night, other food that you may find here are "Satay" and salted chicken but those food are just normal.

Price - 5/10

It is very expensive in my opinion. One meal can cost you more than RM10 depends on what you order, it could be even more expensive. I've no idea why some reviews said the price here is reasonable. I don't really agree with that. But if you don't mind $$$, go for it!

Overall - 8/10

Highly recommend to have your dinner and breakfast here if you drop by Penang!
