The Hillside Cafe Bar and Restaurant @ Hillside, Penang.

During a rainy morning, we decided to step into this cafe for our late breakfast cum lunch. You can park your car in front of the restaurant but during our visit its all fully occupied so we have to park opposite the road. 

Service was very fast and efficient. We were welcome by the waitress and chose our favour table and seated. Then we were being told that they served breakfast and lunch from the menu. So we browsed through the menu for sometime and proceed with our orders.
After order our food, I just have the chance to look around the environment of the cafe. It was quite a nice place. Cosy I would said with the soft music played all the time during our dining there. Both my gal and I quite enjoy it. We felt its quite relaxing. Apart from that both side of their walls of hang lots of photos that took from Siem Reap and China. Which recall our Siem Reap two years back. 
Following were some of the photos of the cafe:

Hubby loves the lightning design.
While waiting for the food being served, you could read some magazines provided by the cafe. There also have free wifi if you need it.
Cappuccino and flat white - RM9 (each)
We ordered cappuccino and flat white as our drink. 

The Works - RM22.50
Basically it's a big breakfast to me. This is my gal meal. She has been pestering me for a home cooked western breaky for quite some time but still did not have the chance to make her favourite so I asked her to try The Works which consisted of two sunny eggs, strip of bacon, a toast bread, baked beans, sausages, grilled tomatoes and butter.
Half way through her meal, she is like Ms. Santa, giving away some food for hubby and me. She told us that this was a big breakfast and she was too full! 
Cafe Burger - RM16
Hubby opted for the cafe pork burger. It served with the side dish like fries, tomato sauce and salad. 
Hubby commented that the pork burger is tender and juicy. 

Breakfast Bap - RM 15.50
Basically it is a toasted English muffins with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes and sauces served with salad on the side. Love the toasted muffins. Very crunchy toast. That goes well with the ingredients inside.

Bak Kut Teh Cottage Delight 浓乡美食轩@ Cameron Highlands, Pahang

We have been a frequent visitors to Cameron highland lately. As I need to bring my visitors around. I have been stopping by this cafe for few times over the year for breakfast and lately stopped by for early lunch.
This is part of the menu. 


 Ice Lemon Tea 


American Breakfast
This is usually my girl choice of breakfast, Not sure why she always order this when she visited this cafe. 

 Ho Hee - RM5.00
We are not sure what is Ho Hee. So we just order one bowl to try. It is basically like koay tiaw thn'g and top with some fish ball, fish wantan and fuchok.
Wanton Mee - RM5.00
They have choice of wantan mee. Either with char siew or wantan. We tried the char siew version. It's a different type of wantan mee compares to the one in Penang style. But quite a good try though.

Hakka Mee - RM5.00
I like their hakka noodles. The noodles got springy textures and it came with a bowl of small yong tao foo. Their yong tao foo is also very nice. 
Curry Noodles - RM5.50
I like the yong tao foo that immerse in the curry. It tastes more flavourable for me. But the last visit the curry noodles sold out. If you like curry perhaps you can give this a try.
Assorted mixed fish balls, fuchok and meat balls
During one visit we ordered assorted yong tao foo to share among each others.

Last week, since it's a school holiday we decided to drop by Gunung Jerai for a visit as the last trip we went there was many years ago. Before we went up to Gunung Jerai, we passed by this restaurant and saw lots of people patronizing this shop. We decided to stop by for our late lunch at this shop.


Teh Tarik and Ais Limau


When we patronizing this shop there are still lots of customers but the food were limited to choose from and they still cooked it from their open kitchen. So we just grabbed whatever choices available as following:
Deep Fried assorted fishes
Their fried fishes are very tasty. I like their textures. Some places they will over cooked their fishes but this place their fishes just nicely cooked. Give it a try if you happen to drop by. 

 Curry Fish Head
Their curry fish head is another good try. Their curry gravy is very good to go with the rice. Most importantly the fish itself is very fresh. 
Deep Fried Chicken Drumstick
When we about to finish the our meal, their deep fried chicken were just ready from their wok. So we decided to give it a try, And it tastes nice although from my first instinct when i looked at the chicken drumstick, I told myself hmm..... this must be overcooked but out of surprised when I had my first bites its very crispy from the outer layer and juicy interior part of the drumstick.
FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict: Good that we stopped by to try this place. The people in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. Foods were nice and delicious. Price vice, it is very reasonable. We had all the above plus three plates of rice, we paid total of RM30.70.
