J-Garden is frequented by Japanese expatriates, a feat which speaks volumes about the authenticity of the yōshoku cuisine here!
Starting with some of J Garden's best sellers- the Tender Chicken Nanban is a dish not to be missed. It is definitely a dish that cannot be found else where... juicy, tender Chicken meat coated with airy batter being fried till perfection and topped with sweet-savory-sour, addictive caramelized Onion sauce. Good on its own or even better to enjoy with their creamy home-made Tartar sauce. While it is contenting to enjoy the dish alone, it is more tummy filling and palate-pleasing to make it a set (additional Rm 6)... with Japanese Rice, Miso Soup and various condiments.
J Garden serve some Japanese-fusion-Italian-Western kind of food, which i would say, J Garden mix things up themselves.
Another lovely dish is Eel and Foie Gras Risotto. The rice is cooked perfectly, which paired well with the buttery eels and foei gras.

The food at Big Ben is reasonably good and affordable. In the evening, the eatery serves Western food instead.
The Aka Special is a spicy choice to have. This spicy specialty comes presented in Shiro soup infused with special spicy chili paste.
For those who does not enjoy soup, probably due to hot weather and sweat a lot, go for their dry ramen. The ramen noodles are tossed in their signature mix of sweet & sour soy sauce, creating a balanced taste that soothing to the taste buds. It is served with chicken meatballs, black fungus, spring onions, seaweed, flavoured beansprouts and eggs.
For those looking for something a little more luxurious, do try the abalone big bao. Filled with a delicious savory filling of meat, chicken, mushroom, egg, and a whole abalone, the bao is large enough to feed three. Priced at RM29.90, we do not mind having this little treat every once in a while.
The Unagi Dumplings were some of the more creative ones. As odd as the combination may seem, it actually works. The sweetness and unique flavor of the Unagi paired very well with the fresh, plumpy Siew Mai
On the other hand, Century Egg with Minced Pork & Holy Basil (RM 18) was a great choice for the night. The minced pork is nicely executed with great aroma, and somehow its gravy made a better choice to dress the white rice compared to tomyam
Blue Chang's Set Lunch offers great value... every set comes with a serving of Thai Papaya Salad, a glass of Thai Milk Tea and a serving of Coconut Ice Cream. The braised Pork Knuckle was delicious, though slightly sweet, the meat was beautifully cooked till fork tender... it carried a hint of spiciness and perfectly spooned over Rice
The signature Chicken Mushroom Pie (RM 14) was special. It uniquely features a puff pastry topping warm chicken mushroom soup. We find it is better to dip the puff pastry to the soup, allowing the warm soup to coat the thin puff pastry and yield a nice sensation. It would have been great if the soup was less salty.
A crowd favorite here at Bee Hooi is the Lor Mee, which is prepared with yellow noodles, lean meat, braised egg, and bean sprout. Served in thick five spice flavored brown gravy, and garnished with crispy deep-fried shallots, it is tasty and comforting with an added spoonful of chili sauce and minced garlic.
Of the different kind of breads, we had a Smoked Duck Croque (RM 28) and it was impressive. We enjoyed the Croque that was served warm with fluffy texture, and the classic grilled Emmental cheese and bechamel sauce sandwiched between the croque that gives it a semi-rich sensation. Overall the pastry makes an excellent choice as a to start the day, or even a snack in between the meal. Absolutely love it.
"Les Grains" sure sounds like French but don't be fooled by the name, this newly opened oriental-fusion bakery specializes in baking Japanese-influenced bread and pastries. Bread lovers should not be new to the name- "Four Season" Bakery (previously at Straits Quay)... Les Grains is the rebranded version. All classic items from Four Season Bakery can now be found at Les Grains, everything seems unchanged except... the price tags, expect at least 20-40% hike in prices and for that very simple reason, this could be the most expensive bakery in Penang. Visitors may purchase the on-the-rack products or dine-in, there's a small Lunch menu available daily... featuring dishes like Salad, Sandwiches and Soup. Though dining here could put a dent on the wallet, Les Grains does not skimp on ingredients, the quality is still as superior as before.
Brown Poodle Burger Platter (RM 19) is a creative creation of a vegetarian dish. It uses baked bagel (burger buns are available too) and have the meat patty replaced with crunchy soy patty, which we did not realise even. It it served along with cheese, fresh vegetables, tomato and pickles, then air fried seaweed fries on the side. Overall is not a bad choice, just we feel the sauce topping the burger a tad confusing.
Barbecue Lamb Shoulder, very generous portion of lamb served to our table, well cook lamb shoulder top with the sweet sauce and pineapple. The lamb is tender and not chewy, great amount of sauce apply make it taste very good.
One thing good here is that you don't have to do any grilling or preparing jobs, all you need to do is just sit down and relax, read the menu and order your food, relax again while waiting for your food to arrive at your table, and enjoy your food when it arrives!
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from barbequed vegetables, but what we got served at Beep Beep Q definitely impressed me. The crispy yam was delicious, sliced thinly and glazed with a sweet honey and savoury sauce and sprinkled with herbs. While the mushrooms had a lovely earthy flavour. While the brocolli and zucchinis were grilled just right to still have some bite to them. I honestly can’t remember the last time I enjoyed vegetables this much! 😛 The grilled veggies hinted at more delicious-ness to come and I could hardly wait!
We were never a fan of Soba but the Green Tea Noodles with Tempura (RM 36) here totally changed our perception. Served cold, the green tea noodles are to be dunked into the soba tsuyu that gives it a light sweet taste. The tempura served was delicious and coated with a very thin layer of dough, rendering us can taste the filling directly.
Tasty Toasty is an air-conditioned eatery at Cantonment Road (Jalan Cantonment). It serves all-day breakfast and Western dishes.
Long before the rise of artisan European bread, local Toasts were staples for any working class in Penang; the locals' favorite way of enjoying a crisp-fluffy toast would be none other than Kaya Butter Toast with soft-boiled Eggs. But Tasty Toasty is churning out Toast with style... giving the bread an upgrade. Unlike the typical cafe fare, Tasty Toasty has a menu dedicated entirely to Toast/ Bun, with a small selection of Pasta dishes. We were told that all Toast/ Bun are made in-house so there will be no preservatives or artificial flavoring. Competitive price points but they don't skimp on food ingredients... impressively done for a humble beginning. Tasty Toast can be found in front of Bandar Baru Supermarket at Cantonment Road (behind Pulau Tikus Wet Market).
他们的Honey Mustard Mayo Breaded Chicken Chop分量蛮大的,鸡肉扎实软嫩,配上甜芥末酱吃,味道更香
Apart from the Omakase, we also tried the 7-course Sushi Gozen Set, in which most of the dishes were similar to the Omakase's in one way or another. The key difference was the 7-piece Nigiri set, every piece was a masterpiece of its own- beautifully hand pressed and topped with slices of generously cut Sashimi. The Rice was firm on the outside and airy inside, leaving the Nigiri a pleasant texture on the palate.
Portobello Cheesy Platter (RM 29.90) did leave us a deep impression on its great taste. The toast is crisp on its edge, then topped with portobello mushrooms with cheese. Lightly seasoned the fluffly scrambled egg to introduce a more solid flavour to it, while the jumbo sausage is good on its own. The entire platter would become an excellent choice for breakfast or brunch.
Le Périgord is a French restaurant along Burmah Road (Jalan Burma). The eatery is named after a former province of France, which is renowned for its truffles, wines and foie gras.
I like this place, there are a lot of seating place, it is comfortable inside Le Périgord and specious too.
