day three in penang, easy day as it’s new year’s eve!!
woke up around 9am, and still can’t decided what to eat. so like the day before, we drove round and round looking for good food. but we either can’t find the one we wanted to go, or the place is not opened. hence, we went to the cheapest dim sum place in penang – dim sum food restaurant
this place is packed with families for breakfast. you will be able to experience a typical malaysia morning breakfast. turnover is very fast. what you need to do is to take the plates of dim sum from the counter, the staff will indicate what you have taken on a piece of paper, and will total up when you are making the payment.
this place serves one of the cheapest dim sum in penang, according to many blogs i had searched. the food, i found it so-so, even though many said that this restaurant serve good dim sum.
day two in penang, just like passed few days, we took it easy and woke up after 9am
we drove to a very famous local cafe – toh soon coffee – which is highly recommended by many while searching for food. little did we expect at even though it’s already after 10am, the place is still full of crowd!! we waited for awhile and decided to give it a miss.
toh soon coffee is located at a backlane sandwiched between two buildings. if there isn’t any crowd standing outside, it can be easily missed. some said that it has the best coffee in penang.
we reached butterworth penang train station in late afternoon.
