Old Trafford Burger at Chulia Street, Penang

That particular moment right after dinner when she craves for burger. And it's not McD's burger. Life is a lot nicer if it's McD since McD is like everywhere and you can order delivery.

When craving comes, you gotta satisfy it, you know. Life's too short not to do that. Heh.

So, he thought of a place after picking her up from the house. Old Trafford's Burger he said. Famous he said. Such crazy MU fan she said.

So here it goes. The burger stalls that all Manchester United fans should at least give it a try. They are opened until 4 o'clock in the morning, so you can go makan after football matches! See whether you all really true fans or not. Haha. Of course it's not like people are gonna judge you if you said you haven't give it a try! *eyes wide open* If like that, all the MU-inspired-shops sure will do well, considering the MANY fans they have out there! :) oh btw, in case you do not know already that he is one HUGE fan of the red devils. HUGE I tell you. We can have endless hours of conversations on this club, right from how and when the club started (sometimes, i really listen to entertain him and give him a bit face la since he's so into it! Haha)

Okay okay. Speak no more. time to find out who loves it and who doesn't!

Menu. Burger ada, hot dogs pun ada. Oblong also they have. Just name it what you want and it shall be given, with a price tag. Also, they serve french fires at your request. RM1.00 to add.

Must be one really hugeee fan of the red devils.

Burger Special Chicken - RM4.50
He says: Old Trafford burger? mestilah try! This one is good! but not that great though.. The mixture of the sauces tastes a bit weird =S Like how the tomatoes are cut into small pieces though =) 
She says: That's his bite! So big heh his mouth! Kidding!! Okay, the burger bun is soft and huge. And can actually taste the butter on it, which makes the bun really yummy. The patti is surprisingly soft I like how he slices the meat patti into half and then lay the cheese in the middle of the meat. That way, it really melts. The sauce is not overwhelming. It's just right. I like this one! :)

Eddy's Chicken Rice at Lorong Susu, Penang

Chicken rice here. Chicken rice there. Chicken rice everywhere.

Another sure-eat-everytime-we-don't-know-what-else-to-eat!

He has been eating this one since he was a lil boy. His mom brought him there. So, he was very convincing as usual towards the chicken rice here and he always said it's the best d and all. She ate here a few times with him and both have different opinions! :)

Chilli sauce - very important 'side dish' to any chicken rice meal.
He says: Sourrrrr.. but its good, its good..
She says: Thumbs up! :)

Chai Buih (Soup with salted vege and lots of i-have-no-idea-what!)
He says: Chai Buiiihh! and its freee unlike other places! Haha. It's quite sour though but I like it!
She says: Yes, it's free. but it SUCKS! Not nice at all. It's too sour and there's no chai bueh taste really! It's not a good soup. No idea why he so crazy and love this soup so much!

Chicken + Duck - RM5
He says: My mum brought me to this place for the first time back when I was 15 and since then its one of my favourite chicken rice! I just love the way the boss simply chop the chicken! Make the chicken taste better somehow! =D Try the duck rice too.. Request the boss to deep fry the duck for you first!
She says: The sauce that's covering the rice is spoon-licking good. Serious, no kidding. The chicken meat, okok only. Duck meat, not that bad. What I really love about this dish is the black sauce with rice and duck meat is the winenr for me.

Roast Pork (char siew) + Pork Belly (sio bak) - RM5

He says: The char siew is simply amazingg! You know what you can do? Admire the colour of the char siew when it is left hanging on the shop. "Looks" tasty and shiny! It is sweeeet and soft. The char siew comes with a sweet sauce too! The pork belly is just okay for me though..
She says: Love the char siew! Sio bak okay only. Nothing great.

Gusto Cafe at Tanjung Bungah Hillside, Penang

Wanna know what exactly do the Westerners eat in their far far away land?

You don't have to travel far to try it.

JUST GO GUSTO CAFE!

So, one Saturday noon, we decided to lunch there with a couple of our friends. Time for some bonding you see. Actually, a few of other friends ate there before and mentioned in Instagram that this is a must try, so we decided to go check it outt! :) (and yea, we know the owner/founder of this cafe)

Menu on the board (written by the co-author himself) :)

She was curious how this would taste like.
He says: Hmmm.. Tastes like ginger ale? 
She says: Ginger is the least of my like-to-eat-things, but I just had to try this out. It looks nice and it  was nice. LOVING IT. Only RM2.00!

Cafe Latte/Flat White - RM6.00
He says: Like and love this.. You gotta try this cafe latte peeps! Smells really good. Try adding on double espresso shot if you wanna feel more awake =D
She says: Me no likey coffee. Sorry, don't know what to say also. It tasted.. bitter? (that's usually how coffee is like what)

Pulled Pork (served with wedges and potato salad) - RM15
He says: Pork burger!?! The last time I tasted a pork burger was the samurai burger from Hatyai! This one is  not the same as that though. The meat is simply softtt after being cooked in a slow cooker for 14-18 hours.. However, I think Gusto can add more taste into this though.. Maybe with the meat a bit burned.. The salad is okayyy...  
She says: It's crazy how soft and tender the pork meat is. It's cooked in a slow cooker for many many hours and I didn't even have to chew much! For those who wears braces and just have them tightened, you can still enjoy! Just order this burger! Oh, and the bun that they serve with is wholemeal type. AHH! Goodness add with more goodness! Oh, and their potato salad, GENIUS!

Double Happiness Burger (a.k.a. Heart Attack!) - RM15
He says: THIS IS DA ONE! You people gotta try this like ASAP. The beef was juicy, the cheese was supple and the bacon was fulah! what a great combo.. Plus, it comes with healthy buns and wedges. REALLY, YOU GOTTA TASTE THIS YOURSELF =D
She says: Double the beef patties and double the bacon? And the cheese is not those ordinary sandwich slice cheese. It's those like really gooey and yummy! I LOVE THIS BURGER! I have to say that this is the best beef burger I have eaten so far in Penang! And it's so cheap!! :) *drools*

Cheese Steak Sandwich - RM15
He says: Cheesy and yummy! This one is alright for me =)
She says: Quite like this one. Yummy beef withthe yummy melted cheese. THUMBS UP! :)

Their SPECIAL homemade sauce.
He says: This homemade sauce is specially done by the boss himself. Try this with the wedges =)
She says: Who needs sauce when the burget itself is already so nice, right? Haha. Anyways, I like this one. Nothing extraordinary as I'm not really the sauce-type-of-person but you have to try it! :)

Mango Dessert at Hui Lau Shan, Gurney Plaza, Penang

We always walked by this place and never got the chance to try it out. She is not a big fan of fruits but he is. In the end, we tried it out ler since its mango and almost everyone likes mango, right?

After movie one night, we were like "let's go eat mango!"

and mango we ate (healthy supper)

Presenting to you *drum rolls* MANGO ROMANCE - RM12.90

First one - Mango Ice Cream with diced fresh mango on top of a layer of jelly.
He says: Its okay okay la.. Love mango! The ice is so so ni... But i like the aloe vera together with the mango!
She says: The ice cream, I loveeeeeee! So smooth and strong of mango flavour. Super rich and super awesome! Diced mango is good and pretty refreshing. The jelly that's at the bottom of it all is the spoiler of this mini dish. Tasteless and disgusting texture.

Second one - Pureed mango served with mini glutinous rice balls  and diced mango.
He says: I likey this one! =D Its like a cup of think mango juice with those balls inside it.
She says: I like the mango puree, and the diced mango in it. The glutinous rice ball, I don't really fancy.

Third one - Mango ball (fillings of diced mango) coated with shredded coconut and sliced mango.
He says: Mango again! This one is quite special.. tastes better than i expected it to be!
She says: This dish is a genius. Who would ever know  that mango goes quite well with coconut? I never knew. At first, I thought it was gonna be a weird one. But no, this is definitely my favorite in this 'romance'! :))


Price: Pretty expensive

Japanese Melonpan at Queens Food Market, Queenbay Mall, Penang

SNACKS SNACKS SNACKS AND MORE SNACKS!

After reading all our posts in this blog, you will realize what kind of food we like to eat and our eating styles. It's pretty obvious, really. Haha.

So, anyways, the boy always looks for snacks to eat. I guess it's like his way of telling himself that he won't get fat as long as the portion he eats are small. But then again, I think he can never not eat when his eyes lay on any food stalls. He just eats and eats and eats.

I was getting my 'lunch' when he walked to the other side to decide what he was gonna have. And then he walked towards the table with a small brown paper bag. He then revealed mysteriously the inside of it *drama*

The moment I looked at it, I'm like "Polo pau?" (some kind of Asian sweet bun with crisp sweet top). And he's like "Noo.. it's Japanese something something.."

As I was taking my bite, I can hear him mumbling about being sweet and soft. I felt so disturbed la cos it's like I haven't even put it in my mouth yet! Anyways, shall show you the photos of which the boy took.

Japanese Melonpan (Original) - RM2.80

Melonpan originated from Japan (duh!) and can be eaten with many different types of fillings.
He says: Hahaha.. Quite good. Its crispy outside and soft inside. Smells really good! The custard tastes just right as well! Give it a go peeps if you don't mind paying for it! =)
She says: I expected it to be like any ordinary bun. But the moment I bite into it, it wow-ed me. So soft and cookie-ish like. The filling is custard-ish and sweet. The whole bun is sweet. For sweet tooth, you'll most likely love it. GO TRY IT! :)

The whole stall only sells melonpan.

Add RM1.00 for other flavours.
Try it and then tell us how is it! :)
