.155-Boost, Gurney Plaza, Penang.

I used to buy drinks from Boost when I was in London last year. Now, a branch has recently opened up in Gurney Plaza, and it's located in Basement 1 opposite the Big Apple Donut place. Price-wise, it's a little expensive, but once in awhile, it's ok.

.154-McDonald's McChicken Supreme.

After the Black Pepper Spicy Chicken McDeluxe promotion ended, McDonald's Malaysia came up with a new promotional burger. This time it's called McChicken Supreme. A new Shaker Fries flavour came out as well, and it's the BBQ McShaker Fries. This is probably my least favourite among all the promotional McDonald's burgers that came out so far this year.

The special thing about this burger is an extra smoked chicken slice and a slice of tomato.

.153-Blue Reef Fish & Chips, Permai 32, Penang.

I came to this restaurant with my family and granduncle for my birthday lunch. It was my first time there, and the food was pretty good. Serves Western food, like pastas, steaks, soups, fish, etc. My granduncle brought us here, and it's located at a sort of new commercial area after the Vale of Tempe road. The price is reasonable as well.

Check out their Facebook page; Blue Reef Fish & Chips.

Their soup of the day for that day. It had a mixture of different ingredients, I didn't like this one.

My pasta. I think it was cream sauce with salmon.

.152-Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Fondue.

.151-Goh Teo Kee Restaurant, Gurney Drive, Penang.

A few weeks back, me and my family went out for dinner on our usual Friday night outing. Decided to try out this Teochew food restaurant along Gurney Drive, next to the 7-Eleven. The food was quite nice actually. The price wasn't too bad either.

.150-McDonald's Black Pepper Spicy Chicken McDeluxe and Spicy McShaker Fries.

This was McDonald's promotional burger after the Triple Cheeseburger, and I believe it was on sale on McD's menus from 8th October until sometime this month. I took this on the 1st day it came out, which was the 8th. It's pretty nice, and I think it's the best of the promotional burgers from McD so far, apart from the GCB. It's now been replaced with the McChicken Supreme. The Cheese McShaker Fries that were sold alongside the Triple Cheeseburger was replaced by the Spicy McShaker Fries when this Black Pepper Spicy Chicken McDeluxe was sold.

.149-Chicken Cornish from Secret Recipe.

Had this for afternoon tea sometime last month. This is the original version as the spicy one wasn't available at that time. I like it! It's quite good. Bought this from the Secret Recipe outlet in Gurney Plaza.

.148-Malay Chicken Rice and Teh Ais in Jeniang, Kedah.

Early last month, me and my parents went with a group of people from the Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple to visit temples in rural Kedah. We stopped for lunch at a roadside stall in Jeniang, Kedah. Here is what I had, Malay Chicken Rice and Teh Tarik Ais. =)

.147-Burger King Promenade 28, Lebuh Sungai Pinang 5, Penang.

Finally after a long wait, a Burger King (BK) outlet opened in Penang. However, this is the only BK outlet in Penang for now, and it's located in a pretty odd area. It's off the Jelutong Expressway (JE), around the Sungai Pinang area. Located along Lebuh Sungai Pinang 5. I went the other day on the first day of the opening, and that was last Thursday.

If you are coming on the JE from town, take the Jalan Sungai Pinang exit, turn left at the first junction, go all the way straight to the end until a T-junction, then turn left. BK will be down the road on the left.
If you're coming from the Tesco direction, take the same Jalan Sungai Pinang exit, then at the first junction turn right. After that it will be the same as above.
If you come from Jalan Sungai Pinang, do not turn right/left to JE. Instead, just go straight till the T-junction. Turn left, go down the road, BK is on the left.

.146-Joo Leong Cafe, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

I used to go here with my parents for dinner once in awhile, whenever I'm in that area. The food's good, it famous for the seafood porridge or noodles, toasted bread with butter and sugar, satay and baked salted chicken at night. I never took photos before, but since I had my camera with me when I went with Merritt last Saturday, here are some of the photos. The kopitiam is located along Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah.
