    Best places in Penang to try the famous Kopitiam

    The best kopitiams used to be confined to the Georgetown area, but in recent years the mainland has turned up some fairly good options too. Taste-wise, expect each set of toast to be full of flavor and very inexpensive – it cements Penang’s reputation as the country’s unofficial food capital. Reaching Malaysia was a pleasant experience. The journey was not at all tiring. I had booked my bus tickets from https://www.redbus.my/buses/penang-bus-tickets

    Toh Soon Café
    A long running favorite in Penang for its flavor-packed milk tea and perfectly grilled toasted bread with kaya and melted butter, Toh Soon Café certainly lives up to its glowing reputation. Set on a narrow alley parallel to Campbell Street, it is a tiny shop with just a few plastic tables and chairs set on the five foot walkway outside. One of the big reasons that the toast is so good here is the fact that the restaurant uses a charcoal stove fashioned from an oil drum to make each set of toast, which adds home grown, crispy taste to each bite. There are also different types of bread combinations available here like the Hainan bread, Coffee Marbel Bread, Wholemeal bread and the famous chocolate bread. Make sure you try out the signature home made dishes here which are the Kaya and Peanut butter.

    Ah Wang Café
    Found on the mainland, Ah Wang Café makes for a great stopover on your drive into Penang Island, especially if you are getting in at the early afternoon. Set in Tanjung Tokong, they serve the standard array of drinks, but our favorite is the potent iced Hainanese coffee. Strong and stringent in taste, when paired with the kitchen’s toasted bread with homemade kaya, it is simply superb. Meanwhile the toasted bread comes in a variety of choices – pick between white, whole meal, buns and Bengali bread. Dress up your meal with a side order of the always-perfectly-done, half boiled eggs, which rounds it all up to create a sweetly satisfying meal like no other.

    Luan Fong Kopitiam
    the secret to Luan Fong Kopitiam’s success is the generations-old recipe for making great kaya toast, passed down through the family line since this Chinese coffee shop opened in 1959. The toasted bread is fluffy and airy, allowing the creamy kaya spread to overcome your taste buds with its sweet yet savory flavor. The outlet is currently being run by the second generation of the family. The specialty of this outlet is the egg jam which the Malaysians refer to as kaya. It is a home made dish that is quite popular amongst the locals here. The dish is golden brown in colour and has a texture like a grainy custard. It tastes like a rich egg custard pudding. You can add palm sugar and coconut cream as toppings to it. Additionally, you can pair it with slabs of cold butter that have been sandwiched between toasted Hainanese style of bread toasts. I also witnessed a couple of locals here dipping their toasts in soft boiled eggs. The outlet also has a separate beef noodle stall which caters largely to youngsters.

    It is quite unimaginable to not associate Singapore with food. Blessed with a variety of cuisines, Singapore has something to suit every foodie’s palate. Topping the list, though, is undoubtedly its seafood.

    The succulent crab meat, the crunchiness of a shrimp, fine textures of a fish—this is just an overview of what Singapore’s seafood has in store for you. Albeit you should be able to find decent seafood all around the Island-State, we urge you to dedicate some of your time in discovering these delightful joints.

    Troubles faced in reaching these places can be squashed immediately. Buying online tickets for a bus is simplified by http://www.redbus.sg ensuring a hassle-free travel.

    The Naked Fin: This intriguing restaurant is hidden at the back of Gillman Barracks, a hard to reach spot in its own right. If you do happen to get a taxi up there, make sure you get them to take you all the way to the restaurant, otherwise the walk from the front gate will leave you a little sweaty. This is the best seafood joint in this city. Prawns and Squids were quite fresh and were lightly seasoned and hence it highlighted their flavour. If you are a diehard seafood lover then this place is for you. If strong food flavour or more sauce is what you are looking for I would recommend you to visit a French restaurant or a Chilli Crab place.

    Penang Seafood: Penang Seafood was where I tried one of my first Fish Head Curries in Singapore. Memorable for the spiciness for sure but also the succulent flesh of the fish. Penang Seafood also gets my vote in this list because they (obviously) specialise in seafood. So here you can also order various other local seafood specialties like Assam Steamed Red Grouper, Chilli Crab and Cuttlefish. I suggest if you don’t like things too spicy you mention that when you order. I had ordered the Pork belly and salted eggs and found them awesome. Good quality food is served across the board. You will not regret visiting this place either. We had a very satisfying meal. This place truly has some great dishes. You can try their famous Assam Laksa which is very authentic. Penang Laksa is also what you can try out. It comes with a generous portion of fish meat. Do expect a queue especially if you visit this place on weekends. The most important thing is it is reasonably economical. Sure to come back again when in this city.

    Jumbo Seafood: One of the most reputed seafood restaurants in East Coast Seafood Centre and through all of Singapore, the must tries here include the Salted egg yolk prawns and Crispy baby squids.

    Long Beach Seafood Restaurant: Based in Kallang Park, local produce is given its due justice here. You cannot not try the Canadian Dungeness crab delicacies—the name itself is highly appealing!

    Palm Beach Seafood Restaurant: The breath-taking views that this eating outlet is based in One Fullerton offers complement the signature dish of this place perfectly, the Chilli crab.

    A Joyful Bus tour from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam

    Visakhapatnam the city, not only identified for its coastal beauty overlooking the Bay of Bengal but also for its splendid hilly terrain. This city is developed and linked accurately with other main cities with the aid of roadways, similar to Hyderabad being some of the favoured bus route. I planned to travel by bus from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam and took online tickets at https://www.redbus.in/bus-tickets/hyderabad-to-visakhapatnam.aspx . They gave some discounts too! I was travelling along with a friend and we decided to travel by Ac semi sleeper bus that took around 12 hours to reach Visakhapatnam.

    The bus played a vital role in shaping an ultimate journey scenario for us. We had been touring to Visakhapatnam during the period of the summers; my entire plan was once simply to spend a weekend there. We boarded the bus at 9pm from Vanasthalipuram pick up point and reached OLD GAJUWAKA at 10:30am the next day.

    The bus goes by way of a few picturesque spots like long-stretching expressways, rich greenery, estates and broadened territories. It was a 6 hours bus travel with one relaxation stop. Both of us delighted in some scorching espresso with just a few fries. The two of us were super excited, as this was the first event when we both had been visiting by means of bus. These recollections of the vacation will proceed going longer. Aside from exploring the magnificence of Visakhapatnam, we loved our bus trip too. Despite of the fact, that it was a whole night bus journey, yet the time we had spent together in the vehicle was priceless. Our travel list for two days included spots of excitement in Visakhapatnam like Araku Valley, Dolphin Nose, Borra Hollows, Ramakrishna Shoreline and much more. Well, a trip by bus cannot get any better when your best friend has accompanied you.
