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.
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!
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.
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.
Their tasting menu mainly revolves around the produce-driven concept, to recreate nostalgic flavours using bold innovative cooking methods.
Reasons to visit Communal Table by Gen 根: inventive contemporary Malaysian cuisine; serious portions that are perfect for sharing; highly recommend gourmets from the globe pay a visit
So yours truly was given the opportunity to stay at the JEN Penang Georgetown by Shangri-La, on a recent trip to Penang and it was definitely a beautiful and memorable stay….
If you are looking for a reasonably priced mid-range hotel in George Town, I would recommend Hotel Jen Penang as the location is convenient to get around to most sights in the city centre.
The well known Hotel Jen in Penang is one of Hong Kong based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, one of the world’s premier hotel owners and operators.
The chefs at Cititel Penang is all prepared to welcome you to a delightful Christmas dining with all the season's favourites for you to indulge away.
Kids Eat Free! Cititel Penang has just recently launched their latest promo for Main Street Cafe where a kid below the age of 12 years enjoys a complimentary buffet meal with every paying adult.
Char koay teow and white curry mee represent Penang's renowned hawker scene.
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.
Polo Bun with Butter (菠萝油) – RM4.50, a very typical Hong Kong pastry. The top of the bun was covered with slightly sweet crust while the inner of the bun was stuffed with a piece of creamy butter. In Penang, it is so difficult to get Polo Butter Bun. That is the reason I came to this cafe to try out the bun. It is in fact one of their best-sellers and usually sold out by noon. The top crust was so nice and the bun was soft and warm. Having it with soft and creamy butter was simply satisfying. This bun is perfect when it is served warm.
For the menu, although I thought that the price is wallet-friendly but the choices are limited.
Milk Tea is signature, rich and milky taste.
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.
The main highlight is obviously Roasted Turkey, which is served with sweet potatoes, chestnuts, vegetables, cranberry sauce and giblet gravy.
You may enjoy their theme buffet, the Grill, Rotisserie & Seafood Medley every Thursday and Friday (lunch 12pm - 3pm; dinner 6.30pm - 9.45pm) or Japanese and Seafood Galore themed Buffet every Saturday and Sunday (lunch 12pm - 3pm; dinner 6.30pm - 9.45pm). The weekend themed buffet lunch is priced at RM 72 nett (adult), RM 36 nett (child) and RM 51 nett (senior citizen) while buffet dinner is priced at RM 122 nett (adult), RM 61 nett (child) and RM 85 nett (senior citizen).
I highly recommend Durian Crème Brûlée too.
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.
Now time for the highlight. It's durians! Well desserts with durians to be exact :)
The Lobby Lounge serves cakes and a variety of drinks.
The Wembley Penang welcomes you to the Lobby Lounge, a cozy ambiance for you to sit back, chill and enjoy the mouth-watering treats as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
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.
Reasons to visit Norm Micro Roastery Penang: light, bright, happy setting; excellent coffee; we enjoyed everything we ordered but if you have to be selective don’t miss the Creamy Mushroom and Onion Mousse and the So Frenchie So Chic.
