Every time when planning
for a trip, first thing that came into my mind was the accommodation.
Well, the cheaper, more comfortable and more convenient hostel always be
the winner. In the world heritage site of Georgetown, more and more
hostels and guesthouses were being built. Today, I want to introduce to
you all the Roommates Guesthouse which is located at Lorong Chulia.
If you are a Penangite, or ever been to Pennag, I believe that you must
have seen this unique building before. This three storey building is
called Loke Thye Kee and is located just beside the octopus footbridge
of Georgetown. Each storey of Loke Thye Kee present a different ambiance
dining space. The ground floor is a Hainanese Kopitiam, the first floor
is a classic western style restaurant and the roof terrace is a bar.
Due to the uniqueness of this building, many photography lover has came
to shoot the beautiful site of Loke Thye Kee.
Since Georgetown was listed in the UNESCO world heritage site, added with the attractions from the famous Ernest's murals, today, Georgetown has become an international platform which has attracted the tourists from all over the world. And because of this, Georgetown is slowly being commercialize. Hostel, restaurants, cafes, art galleries and many more started to appear in Georgetown. Two months ago, Folks Cafe has began their business at Lebuh Acheh and they are proud with their food and service quality.
Apom, or the Indian pan cake, is one of the common foods we can get at
most places in Pennag. However, when it comes to the traditional Apom,
it would be a rare one, even in Penang. Yet, I have met with this Indian
hawker who has still practicing the traditional ways of making Apom.
Tomyummy Noodles House, as the name sounds, it is a place where you can get yummy yummy Tomyam! Tomyummy has two outlets, the main one is at Jelutong and this one is at All Seasons Place. Besides selling tomyam, they also provide chicken soup. For those who likes steamboat, Tomyummy is another choice for you.
