Kafe Mandarin (GPS: 5.38299, 100.30423) is a coffee shop in Island Glades, Penang. It is located at the junction of Lorong Delima 3 and Lorong Delima 5. There are a lot of hawker stalls here. Among the hawker food available include mee goreng, mee rebus, chee cheong fun, pan mee, sar hor fun, yee foo mee, Hokkien char, koay teow thng, duck and chicken rice, char koay teow, roti canai, curry mee, Western food, morning toast and more.

I visited this coffee shop for the first time a few days ago, to join an outstation friend here for breakfast. There, I met another local friend who was having char koay teow. It looked very nice, so I returned to this coffee shop today (3 February, 2014) to try the char koay teow. It is indeed very good. I ordered with "kae3 liau3" (extra ingredients). My plate of duck-egg char koay teow with extra prawns cost EM7 but I enjoyed it very much.

Timothy Tye's Penang Eating Tips

Penang is famous as a street food destination, so I am often asked, what I like to eat. Since this same question is being repeated to me over and over, I decided to create a page to answer it, so that I never have to do it in person ever again!
