Old Town Kopitiam @ E-Gate
Last Saturday I was in QB until it closed. On the way back to my car, I walked passed OldTown Kopitiam and saw the staff enjoying their supper – Nasi Lemak Rendang. Based on their eating speed (lol) and the satisfaction they had on their face, no doubt the nasi lemak should be very good.
So the next day we went to the Old Town in E-Gate for dinner. Yeah I admit I always fall into temptations lol.
This is only my second time patronizing Old Town. The first time I went was almost 6 months ago back in Petaling Street. I had their Nissin Noodles and disliked it, bleh. So it was kinda on my blacklist for that whole period haha. By the way, business is very good as seen. It was the only restaurant in E-Gate which was full that day.
Unfortunately for me, the Nasi Lemak Rendang I wanted to try was not available. Man talk about luck, I purposely came for that leh lol.
Well this is no surprise, [tag]White Coffee[/tag] @ RM2.00 is a must-order. And I have to agree with megan that Chang Jiang White Coffee tastes better, it is thicker and more aromatic.
Iced White Coffee costs a little more @ RM2.30.
Siang Leng ordered Old Town [tag]Nasi Lemak[/tag] @ RM5.80. The ingredients are like what you will find in a normal pack of nasi lemak plus a piece of chicken. The most important element in nasi lemak – sambal, is really good! Recommended.
And this is what I had. Since I cannot get any rendang.. curry chicken is the next best thing. Old Town [tag]Curry Chicken[/tag] Rice @ RM6.80 consists of a plate of plain rice with some crackers and a curry chicken.
I love the curry! It is cooked just the way I like it with a lot of thick gravy to go with the rice. This has to be the nicer curry chicken I have had in [tag]Penang[/tag] recently.
One thing that caught my attention was Ice Fire [tag]Polo Bun[/tag] which is a chef recommendation at Old Town. Polo bun is a term for [tag]pineapple bun[/tag] for Hong Kong folks. The bun is actually quite crisp especially on the outer most layer where the pineapple is at. When held tightly, the butter melts from the heat between the bun.. Really nice and it costs only RM2.20 per piece! So ah, my advice is not to order any noodles because they really don’t taste that good. Go for the rice or toasts/buns, that’s what Old Town is really good at

Ayam Penyet AP, an affordable restaurant serving the delicious and addictive Indonesian cuisine called Ayam Penyet, loosely translated to smashed fried chicken. It is a perfect alternative to the already over-mushroomed kopitiam franchises. Not only the quality is getting worse, portion is getting smaller and prices are always increasing. Imagine, after I finished my cuppa

Old Green House restaurant (老青屋) is a popular place among Penangites to have Hokkien Mee (or Prawn Noodle in other Malaysian states) either as dinner or supper. Although the noodle is also available in the morning at another ‘day shift’ stall, most of the working people only have the opportunity to savor it after working

For a cheap and tasty meal, D Kuang Seafood Restaurant at Kampung Baru (Bukit Mertajam) would be a great choice. Here, a dinner for a family of four would cost only a little over RM50 and you could have five dishes inclusive of seafood, meat and vegetable. Sounds good? Read on. Kung Pao Mantis Prawn
