FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict:

It has a rich buttery aroma when you unwrap it. I like the way that they have done their pineapple fillings. Every bite had the pineapple textures. I would suggest tourists can try  out the Gartien Pineapple Cakes. This is another alternative for souvenir to bring home. And it is Penang Made. 


Good News for Gartien Customers:
You can park your car at HOTEL CENTRAL car park @ Lorong Bertam. And bring along your parking ticket to get your FREE parking stamp. It is just 100m walking distance from the car park to Gartien 小田佳园.

Lean Thye Kopitiam @ Lebuh Ah Quee, Penang.

Some of you might already try this lor mee before but for me this is the first time. I passed by many times over the years. Almost full house each time I passed this shop. 
Lean Thye

Kopi "O"
The painting above caught my attention the moment I walked in, so I straight away order a hot kopi "O" when the auntie asked me what to drink. Sugars are provided on each table, which is good as you can add to your preference. 
 Hubby enjoys the coffee but I am not really fancy of this type of kopi "O". Hahahahaha........
Lor Mee
The gravy of the lor mee served here is very thick and full of aroma. You can add extra duck egg, pork and pork skin with extra charges. The chili and garlic pastes are on each table for you to add to your bowl of lor mee according to your liking.
The shop closed on every Sunday. The Lor Mee for small served costs RM3.50 and the large serve costs RM4.

Mackerel Curry Fish Noodles @ Pinang Taste Seafood Restaurant- Lebuh Carnorvan, Penang.

While walking around Penang two weeks ago, we stumbled across this coffee shop while we were making a u - turn since the street was occupied with the morning markets.
The big red sign of Mackerel Curry Noodles catches our attention. So we decided to give this a try in our next food hunting trip. 
According to the uncle, they just barely open for less than 2 months. 
It is just located few shops away from Restoran Aik Hoe.

Mackerel Curry Fish Noodles
The mackerel being served in this bowl of curry noodles is very fresh. They did not deep fried it. Mostly I will have the deep fried mackerel fish. This is actually my first time trying the poached mackerel. Due to the freshness from the fish, it actually makes the bowl of Curry Mee more unique. On the table itself, they have a small containers filled with chilli paste. You can add the amount of chilli according to your tastes. The curry mee per bowl with the mackerel cost around RM6. They do sell curry mee without mackerel though. Just the standard curry Mee.
In the meantime, you will find the following art inside the coffee shop:
