An Excursion to Sungai Petani, Kedah (Part 1)February 17, 2009 | 2,498 views
Enough bout the place for today’s post, as I’m still reeling from the journey. Witnessed not one, but TWO bushfire of sorts along the highway. The weather’s burning hot ….
Bearing in mind the schedule’s rather tight, I did not search or ask around for good food in Sg Petani. Hmm, wrong move. Though our food was provided (6 meals per day, count em!), the quality left much to be desired. So off we went with our foodie-radars all up for some decent grub in town. Tough luck.
Ended up at Village Mall near Tesco Sungai Petani, housing some outlets such as Chicken Rice Shop, Laksa Shack, Nash Donuts (local?), Secret Recipe, Starbucks, and Uncle John Kopitiam. We unanimously chose the latter, as it was teatime and we were still keeping our fingers crossed for the potentially lip-smacking dinner ahead (yeah,RIGHT). The food’s nothing spectacular, and the beverages were a notch below Old Town’s even.
