Deen Nasi Kandar at Toon Leong Coffee Shop at Transfer Road, Penang

Weekdays morning we usually try to catch as much sleep as we can even if that means we could steal 5 minutes from the snoozing time. With that being said, of course it means that we usually won't have breakfast together when we are working.

Actually we do but very very seldom. He starts work at 8:30am and she at 9am, so it's ery difficult to meet up for breakfast before we begin our day. 

One morning though, we went to breakfast at Transfer Road. Deen Nasi Kandar!

She was a bit hesitant because who eats so much rice in the morning right?

But it was highly recommended by a good friend so we decided to give it a shot.

Was it worth waking up early for this? You shall read on and find out! :)

By the way, we had to queue so we went there extra early. Penang people and food. 

Very tempting indeed. 

The queue was so much longer.

"Kuah basah, bang!"

Deen Nasi Kandar, ladies and gentleman.
He says: Enak rasanya! The nasi kandar here is really good. The sotong, the beef, the curry, the egg, the vege. All tastes authentic! I think I would queue here again for this before work next time. Hehe.
She says: "Early morning ask me to line up, it better be good!" That was what I told him and a friend of ours, Judson. And... it turned out SUPER GOOD! No wonder so many people sacrifice their sleep just to get their hands on this yummy typical Malaysian breakfast. I think only Malaysians eat so heavy for breakfast. Crazy hah? It's really good. I would sacrifice my sleep for this again. Maybe not that often lah! :) MUST TRY GUYS!

Jasmine Garden Cafe at Macalister Road, Penang

"Everytime we drive pass this road, you sure look at this place. You want to try the food there isit?"

What he said every single time we drive down Macalister Road. Haha. 

The truth is, she grew up coming to this place for a family meal. Since she was a very young girl. He has never tried out this place before so he decided to bring her whole family there one nice sunny noon and gave them another walk down memory lane.

This place is run by Catholics where there are rooms upstairs for rent, prolly for those who would like to spend few days in Penang in a budgeted way. Not so sure about that though..

Anyways, no need to say also you will know that she was excited to have lunch that day. She kept checking her watch to make sure we go there earlier than planned. Crazy girl.

Simple place to dine for lunch or dinner.

Signature dish: Belacan Fried Chicken.
 He says: Belachan chicken can hardly go wrong! Thumbs up! Hot and crispy! 
She says: First bite so juicy and yummy. This one ten-fingers-licking-good. We ordered round two BTW. I can just order this next time. IT'S SERIOUSLY SO YUMMY!

Stir-fry Kailan.
He says: Could be better if there is more taste to it. Maybe a bit more salt?
She says: A normal dish with maybe more taste needed.

Black Bean Soup.
He says: Ermmmm..  Nothing special but pretty decent soup!
She says: Like having a hot water soup with some beans in it? Nehhhh.

He says: Taste okay but the curry is a bit diluted. 
She says: Fish fillet is fresh. It looks better than it tasted. To be honest, it was prolly one of the worse I've ever tasted. I remembered it being one of the best I've tasted last time. Maybe change of chefs..
