Chill ‘n’ Chat at Chef Loong Restaurant

Guess who is my special guest in this segment?

Yes, it is DAP’s rising star and economic adviser to its Secretary-General. But to me, Tony is a friend first. I met him when he was still a CEO of his company, Cyber Village Sdn Bhd. It never crossed my mind that Tony the CEO will one day take a plunge into politics.

We were looking for a restaurant to do a food review and stumbled upon a restaurant in SS2, the Chef Loong Restaurant. It offers a wide range of mouth watering desert and ‘tong sui’.

Want to know more about Tony and our food review? Take a look at this video.

Next week, there is another personality (a ruling government MP) on the show. Watch this space! We will introduce you to another highly regarded restaurant.

Nyonya Cafe at New World, Penang

Filed under: Food Review (Malaysia), Restaurants — Tags: , , , , , — kpkhoo @ 9:25 am

My good friend, Neil Khor, recommended I visit a nyonya restaurant at New World. So, I invited another friend, Jessie Loh, an IT entrepreneur to tag along as my special guest for the food review.

The restaurant is hidden by some trees but it looked cosy and well decorated. We were greeted by a friendly outlet manager, Kristine. She sat us down and Kenneth Yip, the owner of the cafe helped us with the menu.

Kenneth helped us to order several dishes and its signature ‘asam/lemak’ laksa as well. Watch the video if you wanted to know how some of these dishes are prepared and about our review.

Kenneth’s parting words, “Penang should promote its unique baba nyonya culture and food”. I nodded with agreement.
