Tasting Menu @Gēn 根, Lebuh Presgrave, George Town, Penang

The course mellows out to finish in a Tuak Sorbet with Gula Melaka Syrup, Coconut Flakes, and Rose Rice Cake. To get the perfect taste, we were instructed to blend in the ingredients together. It is somehow more flavorful, balanced by a delicate sweetness and texture. All well ends well with a cup of Nutmeg Tea.

Gēn 根 @ Lebuh Presgrave, Georgetown, Penang.

Instead of thinking what to order, we decided to go for their Chef's Tasting Menu (priced at Rm 120 and Rm 150 respectively). The excitement of waiting eagerly for the next dish is part of the experiences. The Chef mesmerized us by serving 2 Amuse-Bouche... the first was a blend of Mango, Herbs and Rice Crackers while the latter one was Deep Fried White Bait. The refreshing start was a memorable one, we love the blend of flavors and the contrast in texture, especially the touch of Torch Ginger and Kaffir Lime Leaves which enhanced the refreshing-factor.

For a meatier option, the pork rib with fragrant shiitake mushrooms was presented topped with black moss, shiitake powder, and dehydrated salted duck egg. The stew has intriguing sweet and delicate Asian flavors drawing from star anise, cloves, and soy sauce.
