Well, most of the times when I said heading North, it refers to Penang, and usually it's just a day trip as it's only a 50 minutes car ride.
This trip is planned by a friend of mine, Elie. She suggested to visit the iFOODex held at PISA Penang, it's a food expo which I have no idea what it is.
This early riser slept all the way (as expected) to Penang
This is the food expo, lots of people, so much to see (basically food like snacks, biscuits, health supplements, drinks, frozen stuff, cooking ingredients and etc), but nothing much to buy (for me), haha xD In the end we bought only the cakes from Butter & Olive
Leaving the expo we headed to lunch. Traffic in Penang this day was as crazy as expected. We spent most time stuck in traffic jams =_=午餐时间到！友人介绍了韩日馆烧炭餐厅。
Friend recommended this KNK Yakiniku Japanese charcoal bbq restaurant
My boy wants to eat too!
Elie's son Jack is showing his thumb up!
Mafia boy Aden climbed from the high chair to the dining table, his dad also speechless already >.<
Quickly carry him away from the table!
Our humble families of 3, hehe
Basically beef are more recommended here, poor me only can eat the chicken and seafood as I don't eat beef
The rice set and pancakes are quite nice!
Elie and I with our naughty boys!
Went shopping at Gurney Plaza......
Had desserts at Tong Pak Fu
With the helps of GPS, we managed to locate this Spade's burger shop, situated at Bangunan Lip Sin, Pekaka Square at Bayan Lepas (Near USM). I have been wanting to try this charcoal burgers as blogged by some bloggers.
To my surprise, it's not a well-maintained air-conditioned cafe..... More like a kopitiam I'd say.....
晚餐呢就来到了这里，Spade's burger, 早前就看到一些部落客分享这炭烧汉堡，觉得很特别很想试看看。地方不好找不过还好有GPS。。
But quite a lot of people come here.......
一看到这间店的时候，有点小失望。。原本以为是什么有冷气的那种 cafe，怎知。。。只是很普通的店面。。呵呵~ 不过还蛮多人的
The only menu on the counter table, self order and pay.....
就连menu也是一个罢了，摆在柜台那边。。都是self servie去 order 的。。
Actually they don't even have a signboard, only the banner as shown in the left picture, luckily I have seen this through people's blog otherwise I think I'd have a hard time finding this shop......
As for the burgers, to be very honest, they are nothing VERY special. Of course the main attraction is the charcoal buns, but besides that, the fillings are just mediocre. So I was a little bit disappointed in the end....... But then, at least my wish is fulfilled ;) Total for these with drinks are RM 28.
Also, I finally tried the famous macaroons from les macaroons de Valerie! Perfect snacks for people with sweet tooth like me!! <3
在Gurney买了一打 Valerie 马卡龙，大爱！终于吃到了！Tapi 我
Hubs had nothing specific to buy, Aden still got his clothes in the closet, and I did my online shopping few weeks ago, so we bought nothing much in the end... hehe
That's how we celebrated Agong's birthday, how about you?
