Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant @ Taman Pekaka

Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant @ Taman Pekaka WAS a restaurant that I used to condemn. But seeing many people are still recommending it after my first visit, I decided to give it another try. After that, I was convinced and it totally changed my impression on the restaurant. I wonder what went wrong in my first visit.

Al-Hambra Tandoori Palace @ Bayan Baru

Al-Hambra Tandoori Palace is a restaurant serving cheap and tasty Northern [tag]Indian cuisine[/tag]. The restaurant was firstly opened in Sungai Petani and has expanded into [tag]Penang[/tag]. The main branch in Penang would be along Nagore Street, while the latest branch to open is located just minutes away from my working place in Taman Sri Tunas, Bayan Baru. It’s only 3-4 shops away from Victoria Station.

Last Friday me and my colleagues went to a cafe-like restaurant in [tag]Krystal Point[/tag], Bayan Baru for lunch. The place is called Cosmic Leisure House and it is more than a normal restaurant. I am sure most of you have heard about the crackdown on illegal gambling outlets in Penang. These outlets cleverly disguise themselves as entertainment outlets. But in fact, one can purchase tokens and play different kinds of machines that dispense tokens upon win. When done playing, exchange the tokens back to cash at the counter. Ok ok, let’s get back to the food :P

Cosmic Leisure House’s menu is surprisingly very extensive, even wine can be ordered! Anyway a set lunch which I orderd costs RM4.90. It includes a main course, a drink and soup. Availabe main courses to choose from are [tag]BBQ Chicken[/tag] Rice, Sweet and Sour Chicken Rice, Sweet and Sour Mantis Prawn Rice.. etc. I think you get the idea lol. They use the same stlye of cooking and sauce for the dishes.. kinda lazy huh? Taste wise still OK, but I recommend going for prawn mantis because for its value ;)
