Healthy homemade burgers at 43 Cafe (Non Halal)

 Thought of having some burger but you are health conscious? Afraid of eating something too salty, oily or even carcinogens from the charcoal? Fret not. This little gem located at Sungai Dua hidden from view unless you know where to find it offers the homemade goodness of iron grill, oven grilled and also baked burgers.

First off we have the fork pork burger where the pork was cooked for a gruesome 8 hours to give it the one of a kind taste.
Next up we have Big Boy... This baddie has a thick and juicy flame grilled patty in between the soft buns.
Then we have the oven grilled pork pork... Just nice for for the ladies...

What is not to miss from this home cafe is their HOMEMADE Ice Scream that would make you scream for more... It's a must try and flavors are changing all the time but I could tell you no where could I get smoother ice cream.

Environment: 3.5/5 (Clean, quiet, corner house home business)

Service: 4/5 (Blogger friendly, big boss on the grill himself and serves with a smile)

Taste: 3.5/5 (Healthy less salt - salt shaker on the table)

Consistency: 4/5 (so many times so good... Even till this day I get recommendations for their ice scream)

Price: 4/5 (Quite reasonable for home made goodness and less than RM10 for normal burger)

Peugeot 3S Bluebox Penang

I have been invited to visit this little gem which is a blue box in Butterworth Penang the last weekend. So what is so special and what is a blue box. The first of it's kind in the Northern Region, This 3 floor blue box incorporates what we call the 3S which is Showroom, Spare Parts and also Servicing.
The showroom is located on the first and second floor. Yeah! They have lifts just to get those cars up there thus it's a whole lot more bigger than any normal showrooms giving you the preview of more cars.
Here's a look at the top floor showroom
They also have 6 service bays catering for service and repairs for around 20 cars per day
You could actually monitor them working on your car from the glass panel at the luxury of the fully air conditioned second floor.
Ever find it hard to get imported spare parts for your imported cars that the shops tell you that they need to order it for a week or two? Fret not, the spare parts are all ready in house for your general repairs, replacements or upgrades.
One common thing that I always get is that the service center would tell you that servicing your car takes 2 hours and that you are free to walk a mile away to the nearest restaurant to have your meal while they play around with your car. What if you are not hungry? Speaking from personal experience, you would literally wait for them like a "dungu" in maybe an uncomfortable cold iron chair right?
At this little gem, they provide several flat screen TV, magazines, free coffee and tea for customers, Imagine sipping coffee on a comfortable sofa looking at them repairing your car. It would surely put some pressure on those guys working down there. Now what if you have kids screaming and running around? They have the cosy private entertainment room to cater for them with build in ASTRO channels to keep your kids occupied.
For those who wanted to get away from the screaming of kids, they have 4 private professional room to cater for the working class with high speed internet for those who could not get away from work or even those who just want a private discussion.
Someone once told me that the only place to avoid when going to a car workshop is the toilet... Tadaaa!!! World class clean toilet is actually a surprise here. It's clean and odorless.
I finally got to lay my hands on the Peugeot 508 which was a real smooth and quiet ride while going from 0-100KM/H in a mere 9 seconds after paying the toll.
I really liked the special HUD that helps you see the speed without looking any lower.

So how do you get there?

G Hotel Sesame + Soy review

When you ask someone about eating lunch and someone suggested a hotel, I always get the answer that all hotel food taste the same. Well I was having my business lunch at G Hotel's Sesame + Soy and found that that saying is not entirely true.
Sesame + Soy, a Pan Asian Chinese Cuisine restaurant offered me something more than the usual lunch at busy and noisy places I have my lunch at.

The quiet setting is most valued when you are meeting someone over for business or even when you just want to have lunch quietly with your partner, out from your busy schedule or hectic day. The menu changes weekly where you are given a soup and dessert of the day, the selection of 2 out of the 8 dishes available and complimentary Chinese tea for RM38++.
The Black Fungus soup of the day was served as a starter. I was not quite fond of Black Fungus mostly due to the taste before this but decided to just give it a try.
What I found was that the soup was quite tasty with a touch of chicken boiled with homemade goodness with a touch of pepper.
Crispy Fish Fillet + king oyster sauce - You could literally taste the freshness in the fish slices and goes well with the rice.
Lamb Cubes + Szechuan sauce - The chef did a real good job to reduce the gamey taste from the lamb cubes. I am personally fond of lamb so this was one of my favourite dishes.
Fried Chicken + onion and brown sauce - Jumps around like a kid over fried chicken. This is one of my favourite childhood dish done to perfection. I may look simple to prepare than it actually is. I highly recommend this dish.
Fried French Bean + minced chicken - the touch of the dried baby prawns fried to crisp gave this dish the traditional cantonese taste that I am quite fond of.
Deep Fried Beancurd + cobo - my first question was what is "cobo", it's actually a plant product that taste like fried crabsticks. A good match to the fried beancurd I would say.
Need I say more? SCALLOPS gam heong style!!!
Chicken Feet + papaya kerabu - I personally find this dish a little on the sour side with a touch of asam and sweetness from the papaya. I think the ladies would love this dish due to it's taste.
Stewed Black Mushroom + bean curd stick and assorted vegetable
This is what you get on their Business Set Lunch. 2 dishes + a rice(plain or fried rice) with complimentary chinese tea. I would highly recommend their fried rice over their plain rice. It's what I would describe as simple yet good, aromatic with a touch of garlic and egg.
Finally the dessert, honeydew pudding with strawberry ice cream. When it arrived, my first thought was how did the 2 ever come to be a combination for dessert. Both are like Yin and Yang, one end to the other and I could never tie the both together till I actually tried it. The mixture was perfect with the icy cold ice cream on the refreshing taste pudding. I think this is a bold move by the chef in mixing it. I was also told that they serve different variety of desserts of the day which includes the Gula Melaka Crème brûlée with coconut ice cream which from the sounds of it warrants a return trip just to taste that out.

Note: They are also going to offer the Ramadhan Dinner Buffet from 11th July till 7th August at G Cafe at RM88++ per person (44++ per child 7-12 years) which includes BBQ spread on weekends.

Environment: 5/5 (Clean, quiet and conducive for discussions with private rooms for 6 to 20 person)

Service: 4/5 (The staffs are friendly, helpful and serve with a smile)

Taste: 3.5/5 (I would say better than your average hotel food you could find elsewhere)

Consistency: ?? (Will visit again soon for this)

Price: 4/5 (Quite reasonable for hotel price but you are paying for the environment and quality)
