Cha Dango 京の茶だんご | Japan

Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko, rice flour. There are many varieties of dango in Japan and normally three to four dango are often served on a skewer. The texture of the dango is very similar to chinese glutinous flour ball (tang yuan), especially the plain dango, not only the texture, the taste is almost close to tang yuan. On this post, I would like to share on the Cha Dango from Kyoto, Japan 京の茶だんご. It is a green tea flavour dango where only sells in Kyoto area. I have never see this brand of dango in Tokyo.

Ki no me (kinome) Japanese Restaurant | The One, Penang

Ki no me, a Japanese Restaurant located at The One, Bayan Lepas. Before went there, comments from others about this restaurant are positive. Good food with good price, but need to wait for nearly one hour before the food was serve. When I blog for this restaurant, I google for Ki no me, and I found this: 木の芽, the young leaves of the sansho tree (Japanese pepper). I think the restaurant named after this leaf as I observed the wall is decorated with many greeny leaves. I believed they are ki no me. Today, we decided to give it a try, we were lucky as we get a parking space right in front of the restaurant and not crowded at the time we arrived there.

PgHill_6This is the first time we went to Penang Hill after visited there since years ago. In my mind, Bukit Bendera is a cool place, where you can go away from super hot Penang island. Also, being prepared that there is "nothing" at the top hill. With this mindset, I prepared a jacket, pizza and some light foods for the trip.


We went in early morning on last Sunday morning, arrived there at about 8.15am. After park our car at their carpark (RM3 per entry), we went to buy ticket. Ticket charge for adult is RM8 per person, if you show your Malaysia identity card to them (child is RM4). By the time we buy the ticket, there is no body in the queue, so we thought the visitor must be very few.

Walk way from carpark to ticket counter

After that, we went to ride on the train, the train straight arrived at the top hill. Thinking back the old train, visitors need to walk out to change train on half way. The train speed is faster compare to old train too.

When we arrived at top hill, we planned to have breakfast at David Brown's restaurant. But they do not get ready on set meal yet, with only cakes and light foods available. The waitress told us there is a food court, so we had our breakfast there.

Surprisingly, food court was quite crowded, many cyclist had their breakfast there. The food is at average price, which we think are quite reasonable at tourism place.

We ordered a plate of Char Koay Teow (RM5) and a plate of Mee Kung Fu (RM6). Food taste is quite good. A cup of coffee (RM2) and Fresh Cocoa juice (RM6). Other foods are Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Fried Rice, Koay Tiao Soup, Bakery, Satay and many more. For drink, they have different kind of fresh juice, Ice Kacang, Fruit Ice and etc.

After breakfast, we walked around the place, and return home before 12pm. There is nothing much at the top hill but compare with N years ago, many things are actually get improved such as food court, cleanliness of the place, train, toilet and of course, number of visitors have increase greatly.

At the end, we took back home our pizza. I also do not wear on my jacket at all as the weather is not cold, just a little cooling.

We ride on "roller coaster" from top hill to bottom hill and end our half day trip. (There is a group of people shouting like riding on roller coaster on our way back, the train speed is quite fast and imagine you are standing at the front part of the train, "roll" down at fast speed.)

The visitors were geting more and more crowded by the time we returned home. So, go early to avoid long queue!
