Enjoy A Splendid Feast During This Holy Month of Ramadan at The Prestige Hotel Penang.
Lavish Fusion Bakery is located at a heritage shop along the bustling Victoria Street and is ornamented with pink walls, plants, and beautiful mural art which depict the elements of strong nature, tropical and beach vibes.
But on the other hand, Wild Berries Lemonade captured our heart with its amazing taste. A taste featuring the sour and sweetness that triggers the senses in unexpected ways, YUM!! Wild Berries Lemonade @ RM 17.20
Roasted chicken Green Curry at about MYR 28.5 where the green curry gravy is served in the very small glass container shown ini the photo.
Olive Oil Zucchini Bread (MYR 13) Comes with some sea salt sprinkles and whirl of smooth crème fraîche.
Both Cafe Latte (H) and (I) taste simply delicious. A beautiful combination of coffee and almond milk that packs a punch, delicious and smooth. In addition, what I love about this cafe is that they don't charge extra for Almond Milk. Sounds great right.
Reasons to visit: great coffee, charming setting, do try the zucchini bread.
When it comes to pasta offerings, expect to tuck into the Seafood Risotto prepared with al dente Arborio rice. The creamy umami-rich risotto with many flavors and ingredients of tiger prawn, clams, calamari, and semi-dried tomato offers abundant heartiness.
Carbonara Smoked Duck – RM28, Smoked Duck Slices, Carbonara Cream, Egg Yolk, Speghetti Parmesan Cheese & Fresh Egg Yolk, Cracked a la minute. Even though this dish is not the signature here, yet the taste of this dish was simply delicious. The fresh eggs yolk made the pasta creamy when mixed together. On the other hand, the taste of the smock duck slices were tender and packed with aroma.
Was a bit disappointed la cause they looked like a restaurant/cafe that has it all. But then again, there were quite a lot of food items on their menu. But the Salted Egg Yolk Pasta is really the bomb!
Reasons to visit Cheong Fatt Tze – The Blue Mansion Penang: fantastic location; a culturally significant stay in a beautifully maintained museum with luxurious amenities and modern-day comforts; lap pool and garden; Indigo restaurant.
The Blue Mansion is now reopened, welcoming Penangites to stay and dine.
We stayed in the largest room category, the Han Suites, which is extra spacious and ideal for our family of four. All their rooms carry names with significance to Cheong Fatt Tze; for instance, our suite was called Mandarin, in honour of Cheong Fatt Tze who was recognised as the last Mandarin of the Highest Order by Empress Dowager. The grand chambers is appointed with a comfortable king-sized bed, as well as a separate sitting room with a day bed (which converts into a bed for the kids at night) and a dining table. We loved the modern bathroom, equipped with a shower and a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub. You will also find various other contemporary comforts and amenities such as a coffee machine, complimentary mini-bar, air-conditioning and complimentary WiFi for your comfort. The traditional sarong provided is a nice touch, where guests are invited to relax like a local. Every evening, local kuih is delivered to your room as part of their turndown service.
Reasons to Kota Dine & Coffee @ Fort Cornwallis: an experience founded in history taking guests from the past to the present with contemporary cooking techniques founded on Penang flavours all in the grounds of the historic Fort Cornwallis; the food is beautiful, delicious and very reasonably priced; remember to use your entrance ticket to the fort for RM10 food credit for each diner..
As you can spot, their food is instant love.
他们位于槟城古迹Fort Cornwallis 里头的纯白玻璃屋，而菜单是以娘惹餐结合西方精致料理文化，给大家带来与众不同的娘惹用餐体验。
The taste of the wantan mee are almost the same as before despite the chewiness of the noodle not as much and the gravy is more starchy. As for the Char Hor Fun, the taste is packed with wok aroma.
If you’re reminiscing the old taste, visit the place and try out their dishes.
Once a popular spot for a comfort bowl of Hong Kong style wonton mee, Hong Kee Wan Thun Mee officially announced their closure on Facebook weeks ago.
Here's the location.
Not forgetting to go along with coffee of course. However, today the espresso-based beans have changed to Brazil and Sumatra blend compared to single origin Guatemala yesterday. Prefer the latter’s fruitier taste profile as this blend was kind of bold to my taste bud, hehe.
Lemon (MYR 25) Whipped yuzu ganache lemon and mint insert in white chocolate yellow lemon coating I must say that this was one of the best tangy desserts I had so far in terms of very citrusy pastry, after the vivid decadent memory last had at Bubba’s Gump- not for its prawns but Key Lime Pie, haha!
Besides the Teochew-style noodle, you can go all the way through to the Steamed Hor Fun with Groupa Fish Fillet and Roasted Pork with Crispy Noodle.
L Kitchen is a place where it’s suitable for all ages.
Overall, the food here was nice and some of the dishes were unique. However, certain dishes had a sweet ending
The chunks of tender lamb with notes of herbs are complemented by a big plate of fragrant white rice and a salad of tomato, lemon, and gherkins. A spoon of the sauce with the rice is just heavenly.
Here's the location.
Halab Penang is probably one of the places where you can take someone for an amazing dining experience.
♥Verdict: Good ambiance and environment. Food wise, I can’t comment much on it since I only tried one dish but it was good, nonetheless.

We enjoyed their Pumpkin and Prawn Rissoto (RM 32) much. The mushy sweet pumpkin blended flawlessly with the rissoto, along with a tad of earthy note introduced by the shimeji mushrooms and handful of herbs rendered the dish appealing.
Overall, i feel that the food here is good, environment is comfortable and service is good.
Unagi Omurice – RM22, Pumpkin & raisin fried rice topped with Japanese omelette and grilled unagi, ebiko and nori flakes. The unagi was pan fried until golden crisp and full of pan aroma, it was then covered with teriyaki sauce and Japanese omelette. One of the highlights that captured my attention was the rice was fried with pumpkin and raisin that made it taste naturally sweet and unique.
We tried the Smoked Duck Mazemen (RM 14) and was delighted with its taste. Though smaller in portion, the noodles texture was al-dente with nice springiness and it has an elusive taste. Then the bowl is topped with nicely done smoked duck, along with ramen egg, sauteed mushrooms, tempura bits, steamed corn, spring onion and tori to give it a complete set of nutrients.
在 Two Frenchies 整体用餐的体验我还挺满意的，值得推荐给大家。
Here's the location.
Confit De Canard (RM 32.90) features a dark confit sitting on a bedding of perfectly executed mashed potatoes. It is crispy on the skin and not too dry on the meat, and having it coated with the soft mashed potatoes is an indulgence.
There is no doubt that The Prestige Hotel is an awesome hotel but what is more interesting is the food they serve there at their The Glass House Restaurant.
Located in the Victorian Arcade of the hotel, this cafe exudes a vibe that makes it perfect for both brunch and a coffee break.
Hot Roast Buffet on Saturday Dinner and Sunday Lunch. The buffet is priced at RM 68+ and RM 58+ for Saturday and Sunday respectively, and senior citizens get a RM 10 off while kids below 12 get a 50% off. If you would like to unwind yourself with some alcohol drinks, then consider to top up another RM 50 to enjoy free flow of beer and wine!
Narrow Marrow had been on our list for some time, and it truly did not disappoint when we finally visited it during this Penang trip. It’s definitely one of our favourite cafes in Penang.
Narrow Marrow is now open in Beach Street as of 30th July 2020.
There is the dirty bourbon tiramisu, and the kahlua tiramisu. The latter with the kahlua coffee-flavored liqueur leaves one with a feeling of contentment
The broth was out of this world. Subtly rich with the extract from the bones.
Here's the location.
It was well known for it home made fish ball and the delicious clear soup. A bowl of Koay Teow Thng that consist of fish ball, pork meat, vegetable and pork lark is not quite enough to fill up your tummy, so we had 2 bowls.
