Foodpanda Food Delivery - Xuan Xin Restaurant at Gurney Plaza, Penang

I don't know if anyone can agree with us but food delivery is like one of the best thing ever invented or something.

Last time, when you feel lazy to go out, the only few options that has delivery service are fast food outlets like McDonalds and KFC.

Then, this came :)

Food delivery for every other kind of food!

Yay to her for sure. Given a choice, she would probably always order food delivery. For him, it's a yay too because duhhh food delivered all the way to your doorstep okay! it would be a yay to anyone!

So, anyways after having such a tiring day at work, we decided to order food delivery using Foodpanda. What made is easy was all we needed to do is download the app. 

Or you can always log into their website to do your ordering.

To make things easier for you, just scan this and you're good to try it out! :)

We like the idea of no calling since whole day work and talk already. We just click and click and our food came one hour later. 

Yes, one hour later so for those who have their dinner at 6:30pm like us, order at 5:30pm! :)

Let's see what we ordered and how did this food delivery service went :)

Cannot believe 7-11 is also in the list. Best for anyone who caters party at home. Not enough drinks and ice? JUST USE THIS APP!

After looking through, we decided to order from Xuan Xin Restaurant, since we have rice and soup at home already :)

You can either pick up your food or have them delivered to your house/office!
He says: Honestly, she's the one who ordered. Anyhow, she says its very simple to do that.
She says: It was exciting to use this app. One of the things I like about this is that they really do deliver within 1 hour although for some 1 hour is quite a long time. Anyways, it's funny that they charge us service fee and also delivery fee. Ohh! Sometimes they have like free delivery promotions and stuff so that's really good! More food delivery for me! :)

Sauteed Sliced Beef with Celery - RM21.80
He says: Love this one.. Nicely done and it is delicious.
She says: Tender slices of beef. So yummy. The celery surprisingly made it really yummy although I still hate eating celery. Heh.

Deep Fried Prok Chop Szechuan Style - RM19.80
He says: The good thing about this is that the pork is really soft. BUT could be spicier since its szechuan style.
She says: Meat is soft and nice. Sauce is disappointing. We ordered szechuan style because we wanted something spicy. This one is sweet and sour kind.

Sri Tanjung Tomyam Seafood at Tanjung Tokong, Penang

Malay food! Ahhh, no doubt malay food is one of our favorite kind of food. It's not only cheap but also really yummy. We found this place through a friend and also her parents recommending its tomyam soup and other dishes. 

We went there once and the place immediately became our Sunday-Dinner-Place. Almost without fail, we';ll always have our dinner on Sunday here.

The only boohoo-thing is that there is no fan and it could get really hot there. Imagine sweating already and having their signature tomyam soup sumore, wala. 

This one can almost become our 'budget-ly romantic' category but I think it's too hot to put it into that group. 

Oh oh! There is also one satay stall that sells really good beef and chicken satay! That will be on another entry for sure!

They have western food and burgers on weekdays too :)

Quite limited space.

Koay Teow Basah
He says: Served hot and spicy.One of the best koay teow basah that I had taken. Thumbs up!
She says: The wetter it is, the better. Afterall, it is called koay teow basah. This one quite nice. 

Bee Hoon Kungfu
(Deep fried bee hoon with thick gravy)
He says: My favourite dish in Malay stalls! However, this one somehow does not have that kick this dish usually have. Nevertheless, recommended!
She says: I didn't even know there's such a dish. I must say I was impressed! Love the gravy. It's a little spicy. Almost like char hor fun but better! The deep fried beehoon not so much but very special. Must try!

Sayur Campur
He says: Not bad but could be better!
She says: Quite a normal dish. Yummy and simple.

Kangkung Belachan
He says: Its a little bit to wet I would say. Just so so.
She says: Okaylah. 

Kailan with Ikan Masin 
He says: Good. Smells good tastes good!
She says: Love this one. 

Ayam Padkaprau
He says: AHA! Good stuff.. If you like hot and spicy dish, you would love this. Not only that, the fragrance of the basil leave would give you a twist in your mouth.
She says: Very similar to a Thai dish that has basil leaves in them. Super yummy. I love this one.

Deep Fried Squid
He says: The hard to go wrong dish :)
She says: Too much flour I feel.

Senya Izakaya Restaurant at Publika Shopping Gallery at Solaris Dutamas, Kuala Lumpur

Short quick holiday to Kuala Lumpur just because we can! :)

Found this Japanese restaurant at Publika while searching for places to eat with his family :)

We have two special guests with us today for this amazing makan session. It was a Japanese style of birthday celebration for the drop-dead-gorgeous lady on the right :)

The color and lighting of the restaurant attracts people from a distance. Extra point for that!

Hardworking chefs at work.

Udon - RM12.80

He says: Hmmm... Nothing special but the soup is pretty good.
She says: Udon very soft. Soup quite normal kind of Japanese udon soup. Heh.
Joe says: I'm still here trying to recall how it tasted and I can't recall. I supposed that says it all.
Jaryn says: I like this one! The soup is fragrant and the udon's texture is just the way I like them to be!

Hokkaido Pork Don - RM22

He says: THIS IS DA ONE. 2 thumbs and 2 toes up!
She says: Grilled to perfection wei! Soft and juicy. One of the best grilled pork belly. THUMBS UP!
Joe says: I would go back there just for this dish. Absolutely delicious.
Jaryn says: This has got to be the star dish of this restaurant. I love it so much!! Oily and unhealthy but oh-so-yummy!

Pork Cutlet Curry  - RM25

He says: Not a big fan of Japanese curry. Like usual, tastes a powderish..
She says: Love the curry. It's not those kin dof spicy curry. It has that amazing aroma and taste that makes the curry so delicious even when it's not spicy. Love it!
Joe says: Tasted exactly like how it should be; which is not too special.
Jaryn says: Never been a big fan of Japanese curry so naturally, this one is not my favorite. The portion is quite big though, so I supposed if you like Japanese curry it's worth trying.

California Roll - RM14.80
He says: Like it!
She says: Okaylah.
Joe says: Good!
Jaryn says: They aren't too bad at all! But they aren't the best I've had. For something so common I think it takes a lot more to really stand out. At least for me!

Canggih punya system ni.
