About Ken

About the Author:

I'm known as Ken, the Chief Eating Officer of Ken Hunts Food and the blog is named after my name. If you must know... I'm 34 years old this year (Year 2024). Do check out the recipe blog I've created earlier ago when I was studying at Perth-  Ken You Cook.

I love eating and a passion to share those wonderful foods that I have found in Penang to others which was why I created this blog. Some of my favorite local Penang hawker foods are Curry Mee, Hokkien Prawn Mee, Lam Mee, Koay Teow Th'ng and Wanton Mee. No, I especially dislike Char Koay Teow, I don't even eat it once a year. I am a huge fan of Japanese food too, Sashimi and Ramen are always on my top list. A decision to control my weight has changed my lifestyle; I take oats over rice now, prefers Salad over Stir Fried Vegetables, I like Chicken Breast over Thigh/ Wings, I enjoy drinking Plain Water over Sugary drinks and I love foods full of fibers. Oh wait... I can't live without Chilies too! 

I believe food tasting is a very subjective manner, well, partially. It depends on the person himself whether he adores the food based on his personal opinion/exquisite taste buds. Past experience or personal liking can be a guidance, I would not say my ratings are perfect- some of you might find it the other way round, but all the ratings I have made were based on my personal liking and comparison with other food outlets. For example, I prefer restaurant A to restaurant B, higher ratings will be given to restaurant A instead. I do not have specific guidelines with me whenever I am rating a restaurant/food outlet, just my opinion on whether the food is good or not. If you must know, I shoot with Canon RP and 24 - 70 mm F2.8, occasionally on GoPro and iPhone XR.
