Coya Healthy Cuisine 古雅料理

Coya Healthy Cuisine 古雅料理

Coya Healthy Cuisine 古雅料理 is located at the end of Lorong Selamat (street opposite New World Park). They serves healthy vegetarian food. The chef invented her own recipe with the guidance of her master without adding MSG in the food. It's a great choice for those who opt for healthy or vegetarian food in Penang! Of having too much of fattening yummy food during my sem break back in Penang, sometimes, I will choose to look for cafe which offers healthy food instead. 

"Fyi, vegetarians do not eat any animals. In addition to not consuming any animal flesh, a vegan (strict vegetarian) also doesn’t eat dairy products, eggs, or any other product derived from an animal. Vegans also avoid using products that have been tested on animals or made from animal skins."

i know you are hungry! :P

Devil Eggs/ 魔鬼蛋 (Rm 4.90 for 3; Rm 7.90 for 6)
The name itself already portrays how scary the egg can be. The devil eggs are extremely spicy. It is a must-order dish for those who are looking for extremely spicy food in this vegetarian restaurant. However, we felt that it will taste nicer if the chef add some potatoes into it. 

 Salted Vampire/ Stir Fried Mock Salted Fish with Ginger/ 姜丝炒咸鱼 (Rm 9.90 for ala-carte; Rm 15.90 for set)
This is rather salty but a bowl of rice will neutralize the saltiness. I like this dish cause it actually reminds me of the stir fried chicken with ginger that my mom used to cook for me quite often last time. She claimed that the usage of julienned ginger helps to release trapped wind in my stomach.

Set comes with :
1) A choice of rice/ noodles
2) A choice of their TRADITIONAL drinks
3) TWO side dishes of the day
4) Dessert of the day

Night Blooming Cereus Herbal Soup/ 霸王花炖汤 (Rm 12.90 for ala-carte; Rm 18.90 for set)
I love drinking herbal soup! Some is sweet while there is some bitter taste herbal sweet. The combination of herbs they used make the nutritious, sweet and tasty. I encourage you to drink more herbal soup especially during cold session as each of the herbs has its own goodness and its own function in promoting good health. It can promote good health and prevention sickness! :D 

Mints Egg Soup/ 薄荷蛋花汤 (Rm 9.90 for ala-carte; Rm 15.90 for set)
Another refreshing healthy soup. We found that one of the ingredients taste like sausage and it is very chewy!

Deep Fried Mushroom/ 炸香菇 (Rm 9.90)
My Favourite dish! The deep fried shitake mushroom is very crispy. A slight of sweet and sour sauce added on the mushroom makes the mushroom taste really yummy! Oh, I crave for this now :(. Imma a huge fans of mushroom!

Minced Meat Rice/ 素肉酱饭 (Rm 7.90 for ala-carte; Rm 12.90 for set)
It comes along with mock minced meat, carrot, cucumber, bok-choy and hard boil egg. It taste just like the typical Taiwanese Minced Meat Rice to me.

 Xiang Chun Mee/ 香椿面 (Rm 7.90 for ala-carte; Rm 12.90 for set)
The chef handmade the noodles. The texture of the noodles is less QQ when we tasted it. However, we were told that we were supposed to eat it when it's hot so that the noodles is more QQ. *we took too much time taking photos :O*

Olive Tea (Rm 3.90), Mango Lassi (Rm 9.90), CC Lemonade (Rm 9.90), Carrot Julius (Rm 9.90)
The Olive Tea is unique as it tasted like the combination of olive and sour plum. I personally prefer the Mango Lassi as it is very rich! Another special drink with the combination of cucumber and lemonade for the CC Lemonade. Carrot Julius taste like common rich carrot juice to me.

Pavilion Coffee Homestay Penang

Introducing you Pavilion Cafe 三禾轩!

Cafes serving western foods is too mainstream these days, but Pavilion Cafe serves Taiwanese Asian fusion dishes, coffee and tea Its a relaxing place to chill with friends, or alone for a cup of coffee or tea to read or surf the nets. Guess what? They provide homestay service too! The cafe is located at Lebuh Presgrave, right opposite Kwang Hwa Yit Poh Press Bhd. 


The cafe retains the old architectural style.

Sakura Fried Rice (RM9.90)
Just like the typical fried rice with fried garlic, spring onion and dried shrimp.

Kaffir Lime Chicken (RM9.90)
Deep fried boneless chicken topped with sweet and sour sauce. The chicken is crispy even after topped with the sauce!

Yellow Duck (RM10.90)
Turmeric rice with Japanese curry. Raisins as the eyes and carrot as the mouth of the duck. The curry is not really spicy, instead, it's sweet, just right for me who can't really take too spicy food! Many people was hoping for the floating yellow rubber duck to come Penang. Now, you can find it in Pavilion Cafe! 

Classic Fried Spaghetti with Ham (RM10.90)
It's quite plain and dry to me, it's better to eat with the sauce provided! *i dont really like dry food tho*

Rose Latte Ice (RM9.90)
Latte added with rose syrup. It's one of their signature drink. I personally like this cause the combination of the rose syrup makes the latte taste bittersweet. The petals as decorations on the latte are pretty and it's edible!

Classic Fruit Tea Ice (RM8.90)
Combination of fruits like apple, lemon and passion fruits. I would prefer the taste to be a bit stronger.

Taiwan Pancake served with Apple Vinegar (RM8.90)
A little bit plain to my liking. Try eat it with the apple vinegar provided. I dare not try the apple vinegar with bird's eyes chili cause my friend tried it and he teared! :O

Chinese Steamed Bun with Fried Char Sau (RM10.90)
The fried char sau is slightly salty. However, the fried char sau taste just right with the soft steam bun. The set comes along with 3 steam bun tho.

Java Spice Vege (RM10.90)
Stir fry of long beans, eggplants and winged beans topped with sesame. It's one of my favorite dishes, taste simply yummy :D

Kung Poh Century Egg (RM10.90)
The century egg is very chewy with a little bit sour and spicy. I totally have no idea that it is century egg at first!

Caramel Macchiato Iced (RM9.90)
This taste good too!

Let me show you Magic! See properly, 3 of the drinks is blue in colour right?

Tadahhhh! The middle cup turned purple!
Blue Purple Dream Ice (RM8.90)
Another signature drinks! It is made of butterfly pea flower, also known as blue flower. The colour of the drinks changed from blue to purple after adding a slice of lemon! Very unique indeed! It has medicinal properties! According to Criz Lai, it lowers cholesterol levels, high blood sugar, blood pressure, kidney healths, reduce depression and so on.

Blue Purple Dream Hot (RM10.90)
I personally prefer the hot one tho :D

It was a Ninetology event and I won a Ninetology Powerbank! Woohooo! Thanks to Ninetology!!!

There were a few models of mobiles for us to try out during the food review such as the Ninetology U9R1, U9X1, U9Z1, U9Z1+ and Ninetology Stealth 4X. My preference would be the Stealth 4X as the design is nice and it is dual sim!
