Apom Chooi@Burmah Road, Penang


Apong is one of those childhood snacks that you never grow old and bored of eating!

Local penang-ites and out-of-towners will come and have a bite of the sweet spongy Apong from Apong Chooi, along Burmah road.

What more can you ask for than an apong snack on a scorched heat day? Best part of all, you can eat them in the comfort of our own car, shielded from the sun and heat.

The last time I had it here was when the uncle was still using a cart…well it is great to know that he has upgraded to a mini lorry to serve his famous apongs to all his fans.


A piece of this with corn and coconut cost RM0.50. Eating this always makes me feel like a child again, regardless what versions of flavours of apongs they come in.

A must try for foodieventurers looking out for funky food flavours!

I respect him too for his tenacity for standing long hours under the hot sun to prepare his apongs. Imagine how many he has got to sell to hit RM100, 200 pieces! Really hard earned money toiled with great efforts. Respect!


Morganfields@Paragon, Penang

I’ve passed by this restaurant several times but was never really drawn into dining here… the chance finally came when I was with 6 hungry big boys hunting for a meaty affair.

We were given adult bips to prevent gracy and sauces staining our clothes. I wore it for a short while but it grew uncomfortable I had to remove it.

This gigantic tray of meaty disbes was meant to serve 3 adults. 3 was an understatement, unless it was 3 very, very hungry adults.

A rack of ribs, 2 thick foot long sausages, few pieces of deep fried dory fillets, prawns, salad and 3 overly oily and crumbly butter cupcakes, grilled corn cobs. For rm 150.

The ribs and sausages were the only items worthy writing on. Juicy, tender ribs with the chargrilled taste locked in. The meat literally did fall off from the bones.

The sausages may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Only the strong hearted hard core fans of pork may find it enjoyable. Super super porky aroma. Not for the faint hearted ones.

Morganfield was running a promotion where by if RM300 was achieved in a single receipt and if your birthday is on the day itself or a day apart, you are entitled to receive 1 year’s free supply of pork ribs, claimable once a month. Worthy deal!
