Homemade Pork Burger in Penang - 43 Cafe

It is located in Sungai Dua, Penang which opposite of University of Science, Malaysia (USM) but not many people know about this place. Probably only known by USM students, I think.

Food - 7.5/10

I don't really give a very high rating for the fact that I don't have a very strong feeling that I want to come back again very badly. Usually those that I rate food with  > 8/10, I have that feeling. Perhaps it is my own bias on western food because I"m not fan of it?

To be honest, the food is unique. You should give it a try and see whether you agree with my assessment. Other than burger, they also serve toast and satay, see the photo below.

Environment - 7/10

Environment is considered clean and acceptable. See here...

Price - 7/10

To me, I think it is okay, not very cheap and not very expensive as compared to most western food.

Overall - 7.5/10

I think it is still worth a visit because of it's uniqueness. The pork burger is a must try because it is mentioned in their menu! :) I recommended this to a friend before and she likes it.

Famous Homemade Laksa and Chai Kueh in Kulim

This is the very famous homemade "Laksa" and "Chai Kueh" that everyone knows in Kulim. It is located in Kilang Lama, Kulim.

In fact, the "Chai Kueh" is the best "Chai Kueh" that I have ever eaten. The skin is not thick. Somehow those not so nice "Chai Kueh" usually has a very thick skin and little vegetable. The "Laksa" there is not bad but I think "Penang Laksa" is better than this! :)

There are 2 houses side by side. The one on the right sells "Chai Kueh"

and the other on the left sells "Laksa".

Food (Chai Kueh) - 9/10

There are 2 types - green and yellow. I like the green one. I don't know how it is called in English. This vegetable is called "Ku Chai" in Hokkien.  The yellow one is called "Mengkuang" in Malay I think. :)

You can't eat there but only take away is allowed. :) So what I usually do is I take away and  just go to the next Laksa house on the left. Everyone does that actually. :)

Food (Laksa) - 7/10

As mentioned, I preferred the Penang Laksa than this but anyway if you want to try a different taste of Laksa, it is worth to try. It is kind of unique also. :)

Overall - 8/10

You must come here to try if you ever drop by Kulim or maybe when you're exploring the north. It is worth to try especially the Chai Kueh"! :)
