FOOJI Canteen 福七食堂 @ Bay Avenue, Bayan Lepas, Penang.

A new addition to Bay Avenue (Bayan Lepas)- this is FOOJI Canteen 福七食堂's second outlet in Penang (the first is in Machang Bubuk/ opened in mid 2023). FOOJI serves a "kopitiam" style menu, featuring Malaysian delights like Kaya Butter Toast, Chinese Rice dishes, Noodles, Fried Rice etc. The seats are well-spaced and the place is air-conditioned, offering a comfortable space for a quick, casual meal. Unfortunately we did not have a good experience here- from service to food quality, there are rooms for improvements definitely.

Fried Bee Hoon with Sunny Side Up (Rm 10.90)

Chicken Porridge with Century Egg (Rm 6.90)

Polo Bun with Butter (Rm 6)

Butter Toast (Rm 3.90)

The Chicken Porridge with Century Egg was pretty standard, nothing to shout about. Good thing was- the Porridge was served to us warm. The Char Bee Hoon (Stir Fried Vermicelli Noodles) was a disappointment. By the look of it, the noodles were separated, suggesting the Vermicelli Noodles were overcooked. The texture was terrible, for Rm 10.90, we thought it was a rip off (I'd only pay Rm 2 for this quality, same like the ones from any roadside stall). The Polo Bun was okay-average, no complains. Half way eating through (probably 20 minutes after we have placed the order), the server informed that they ran out of Eggs and would need extra 30 minutes for the Soft Boiled Eggs (like they did not know about when we placed our order). We threw the white flag and they served us the Butter Toast (without the Soft Boiled Eggs). The Toasts were incredibly dry, what a calorie waste.
