The Best Home Made Pizza in Penang

Delicious Meatless Homemade Pizza and Salad

Seriously this guy made really good pizza and salad. Really. I would say the best homemade pizza in Penang, much better than those in the restaurant.

Thanks Molly for inviting me over your place and it's such a pleasure to enjoy your hubby's super good homemade pizza and your homemade watermelon mints cocktail. And of course, a little talk with everyone.

Pesto Based Pizza

Pesto pizza with green capsicum, white onion. beech/shimeji mushroom and parmesan cheese. Stephen made a very good pesto with basil, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper even without using any nuts. Ohh, my last making pesto was a year ago. I should start picking up the skills again!

From base to paste, all are homemade. I like the way Stephen makes pizza, a little touch of everything into perfection. It tastes so natural or I should say oh... it tastes organic! Many times when we bought pizza from Domino, Pizza Huts or any restaurant, the base of pizza are always too thick, too thin or too much of paste.

The right one has pumpkin in the pizza, yum! All the natural sweetness comes from pumpkin! 

Stephen cooked 3 pizza - pesto, pumpkin and tomato. Tomato one is not in the photo. He didn't use the ready made canned tomato paste because they are overpowered with too many herbs and spices. So do I don't like the ready made tomato paste. He used the canned tomato, peeled off the skin and blend with garlic, salt and pepper to make the paste for pizza. 

This salad is awesome with nutty pumpkin seed, natural caramelization of carrot, a few pinch of fresh dills and others green. 

As you can see, all the food was vegetarian, no meat. 

Vegetarian food can be as delicious. 

My next project : it's time to invest an oven and learn to make pizza.

Thanks for inspiring me some of the ideas in cooking.

Cintan Mee Recipe ( Stir Fry Noodles ) 炒金旦面

Cintan Mee - The Ding Dong Mee

I love Cintan Mee so much, whether it is stir-fried with tomyam or soy sauce. I 'developed' this dish from an old kopitiam in my hometown which used to be famous of Cintan Mee. The shop was owned by an old couple but they closed the shop when I was in Year 5? Oh it was long time ago! Everyone miss their cintan mee. 
Thank god for gifted me such a good tongue and I made it!!! The taste is similar but the method of preparing is differ from the old couple. Also, I skip some ingredients to make it easy and simple. 

My sister loves it because she misses it so much as she was away from home for so many years. I remembered when I was in primary school and she came back from oversea, she will ask me to take away for her and she wanted it dry ( less sauce compare to the wet one). I could see she enjoys this dish so much whenever I cooked.

Sadly I don't have any photo of how was the noodles looked. I really miss it. So why I said my cooking method is diffe…

Bee Hooi Cafe @ Pulau Tikus, Penang

What to eat at Bee Hooi Cafe/kopitiam? 
1. Char Hor Fan ( Flat-wide Rice Noodles with Gravy )
2. Chicken Porridge
3. Duck Egg Char Kuey Tiao ( Stir Fry Flat Rice Noodles with Duck Egg )

My first time here was just a coincident stop-by a random kopitiam to take away supper. There sells quite a selection of food even though not as variety as the food court of course. However you can find some good food here! Well, the best and my favourite is still the 'Char Hor Fan'!
Char Hor Fan I ordered the Char Hor Fan since I haven't eaten for awhile. I was so excited when I had the first spoon - the taste that I missed > The Authentic Taste! The sauce didn't overwhelm the flavour of stir fry noodles. You can still taste the wok taste and the noodle wasn't so oily too. The stall are owned by an old couple. I wish they could teach me how to cook this. RM5 for a plate of Char Hor Fun.

Not just the flat rice noodles, they also stir fry it with a little bit of vermicelli. Some people d…

Yen Seafood Restaurant @ Batu Kawan, Penang

SEAFOOD Dinner @ Yen Seafood Restaurant

A hidden seafood restaurant in Batu Kawan surrounded by palm plantation which is located not far from the Penang Second Bridge. It has two dining area: air-conditional indoor and fresh-air outdoor. Plenty of car parks and dining tables. However, it is advisable to book during the weekend.

What's make so many people come here for food??? Because the price is cheap and reasonable??? You can see some alive fishes, crabs and mantis shrimps at the left side of the restaurant.
Steamed fish
I would like to skip the comment about the sauce because nothing special and very light in taste. However, the flesh was indeed very fresh and heaps!!! We struggled to finish the whole fish because it was very huge and this dish came out last. I wonder why it came out last??? This dish should come out in the middle because it is good to go with rice...
