Kobe Beef Steak (神户牛肉)| Mouriya| Kobe, Japan

What you think about when some one says "Kobe" in front of you? I think lot of people will think about "Kobe Beef" or "Kobe Cow". Kobe beef is recognized as most expensive high quality beef worldwide.

 

Mikki G Restaurant (Formerly Home's Cafe) | D'piazza, Bayan Lepas

After Green Island western food restaurant, there is another newly open western food restaurant in Bayan Lepas area. It was formerly known as Home's Cafe, and now change to Mikki G. We managed to visit this place on last Friday, second day of the opening. 10% discount on all foods and it is applicable until end of April 2013. Heard that the chef is from Legend hotel in KL. The interior of the restaurant remained the same as previous and worker's uniform is still black in colour. Menu wise, they serve more on western food, including chicken chop, chicken cordon bleu, roast rosemary chicken, spegetti and etc. Lamb shrank is popular according to my colleague. Besides, the old menu "Local Delight" from Home's Cafe are still available.

 

Instant Ramen Museum | Osaka, Japan

Instant Ramen Museum is located at Ikeda-shi, Osaka. You can experience making your own cup noodle here. If you would like to make noodle from sratch, here is the place for you too. Besides, the history of the chicken ramen development, which is the world’s first instant ramen, and the changes in many products over the years can be found here too. Entrance is free unless you want to buy cup noodle or attend the making noodle class. I visited this museum to make my cup noodle. After seeing through the ramen history and development process, I bought two empty cups from vending machine inside the museum, 300 yen per cup. Then I was arranged to sit at "art class corner" to draw and decorate my cup. After finished, I proceed to collect my ramen and choose the ingredients I like. You can choose 4 out of 10 ingredients. Then you can choose your soup base before proceed to final packing. It is fun to make your own cup noodle, I did not join the making noodle class as it is reservation at earlier time. Overall, it was a fun experience here and I will enjoy my cup noodle with Camus after return to Penang.

 

Bread Maker Butter Cake

Have you ever try to bake cake with bread maker? I still remember, one of the attractive point of this new bread maker is the "bake cake" function. I wonder how will the cake taste with this super lazy method. No baking tool (except weight machine) is needed. What you need to do is to dump everything into the machine and press few buttons. That's all!

181_5"We Share What We Have.....", this is a slogan of 181 Open House, a coffee house located at Juru, Penang. The coffee house open in July 2012 and operate by a Chinese couple of husband and wife. It was renovated from bungalo type double story old house at Juru Village, and "181" is plat number of their house.

Before that, we have passed by the coffee house for many times, but could not get a chance to dine in there. Last weekend, we managed to visit them and had our lunch there.

181

The coffee house is fully decorated by the owners, with mural painting, owner's photography, books for reading, chairs made by newspaper, coca-cola cans collection, coffee makers/cups collection and others. We believed most of the things are recycled, even coffee cups are all different in "design". They also made efford to plant some plantation outside the house, giving a more comfortable environment to their customers. Other than decorations, music also plays an important role in bringing out the relaxing environment.

For food, they have different menu for lunch daily. Besides, they also serve coffee and cakes too. Cheesecakes are homemade by the wife. Since it was lunch time, we ordered one Chicken Teriyaki and one Chinese Herbal Chicken Soup. Both are served with vegetable and egg. When the foods are served, the owner remind us that no MSG was added, so we can finish up the all the dishes including soup without worry.

The herbal soup cames with drumstick, we like it as it tasted like mother's home cook soup, healthy and delicious.

As for Chicken Teriyaki, it tasted not bad too but I would prefer chicken with bone. I believed for many people, eating chicken or fish without bone is easier but for me, chicken without bone is like missing something on it.

We truly feel the efford made by both the owners to bring out relax and comfortable environment to their customers. We as customer and food blogger, sincerely wish their coffee house business is booming. We do wish to return for their cheese cake and coffee in near future!
