SeaQueen Restaurant Straits Quay Tanjung Tokong
Overall, the dim sum was good and the ambiance was also very comfortable. There is a multi-storey carpark at Straits Quay. As for the price, I would say it is considered reasonable judging by its location and ambiance. The ingredients used to prepare the dim sum were also very fresh. This is the ideal place for people living nearby to have dim sum without the hassle of going to town.
海峡湾餐厅 (SeaQueen Restaurant) 最近推出了现点现做的正宗港式点心！
The star dish of the day was Sizzling Beef... tender, juicy and flavorful meat served on a sizzling hot pan... with Black Pepper sauce; not too Thai but definitely very delicious.
All in all, Chili Head Social Bar & Eatery definitely the Thai food dining experience in the heart of Tanjong Tokong.
Blue Mountain Blend (MYR 14.50) Comes well balanced with mellow and floral aroma
Over here at Full of Beans, they are really serious about coffee, as reflected in their wide selections of beans, be it house beans or seasonal. Blend type is also available for those not so fussy about their cup of joe and gladly enjoy their milk-based coffee.
为了吸引更多顾客的光临，The Shed 为每一天搭配了主题和优惠，以下为他们的主题
So head over to The Shed at Straits Quay and enjoy the mouth-watering items and drinks on the menu while enjoying the sea breeze flowing.
Australian Cuisine hasn't had much exposure in Penang but we hope that will change with the opening of The Shed in Straits Quay. The Australian-influenced Pub & Restaurant offers a vast selection of grill meats as well as some Burgers and Pasta. The setup is more of a bistro with a stage behind (live music performances are available on certain days); those who prefer a more outdoorsy ambiance with cold sea breeze could opt to dine-in at the sea-front while those who prefer to sit nearer to the stage could opt for inside. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, most suitable to chill out with friends/ family over a few helpings of beers and wines (or even better, pair with their meat-focused dishes). Not a bad place for drinks and casual Australian barbecue meat but we thought the food lacked the "x" factor (not that we weren't pleased with the quality, just that the probability of returning is not high). The Shed Aussie Pub & Restaurant can be found right next to Spasso Milano, previous tenant was Weissbrau German Bistro.
The smaller size village chicken is a better choice. Accompanied by seasoning dipping powder, the chicken arrives at the table hanging up over a plate and left to be carve by the diners themselves or the server (pulling apart using hand gloves). The village chicken offers a firm juicy bite and pleasing marination flavors, and it tasted delicious without dipping in the seasoning powder.
We got a little overly excited with the opening of Nomiya- American Izakaya at Straits Quay; the name Izakaya gives an impression that the gastropub serves light Japanese Tapas and alcohol but this particular place got it all wrong. Nomiya serves limited Izakaya-related menu (no Yakitori, no Ikayaki, no Karaage, no Japanese-styled Grilled Fish nor American Tapas) but a series of mains with above-average (rather hefty) price tags (yet the quality/ serving portion failed to commemorate with price). Not only the menu and quality were disappointing, the service was equally lackluster as well. Orders were wrongly taken and the service lead time was long either (took them more than 45 minutes to serve all orders). Probably they were still new, our dining experience was rather bad and we reckon they have plenty of rooms for improvements still.
Service is good and price is reasonable.
Spaghetti Aglio olio with Smoked Duck (RM 21) is cooked to al-dente with a generous quantity of smoked duck. Sprinkles of chili flakes may be a tad overwhelming as it rendered the entire dish tasted flat. Overall, the spaghetti was a tad greasy to enjoy.
Rather a playful combination, the Creamy Tomato Thai Sauce Spaghetti did not really hit us. We found the combo a little odd at the beginning... it was a medley of sweet, savory, sour and spiciness in one go but it was somehow weird to us. It was something like Thai Chili sauce with Carbonara Cream sauce; the Chicken was disappointingly average. Though tender, it did not really leave us with a very deep impression.
The specialty offered by Ah Wang cafeteria is their homemade kaya, sandwiching in between the breads. It comes with a custardy texture and the sweetness is well balanced. Often time, it comes accompanied with butter, or better known as Roti Kahwin. Their homemade kaya is available for sale too.
Ah Wang Cafe has been operated more than 30 years. It is famous due to it home made Kaya & toast. This cafe does not operate in air condition environment. UDA flat is sitting next to the sea, you can enjoy the sea wind while enjoying the toasted bread.
The Stall of Ah Wang Cafe is famous for its Bread/Toasted Bread with Butter/'Kaya'/Boiled Egg (Roti Kaya, Roti Butter, Roti Kahwin & Roti Telur) and it is a great place to take a short break there in the late afternoon.
You will get to enjoy different range of food from Jazz Hotel Buffet.

Offering the very best of local and international cuisines. The curated buffet spread offers diners to continually indulge in their preferred home cooked classics and also lots of new favorites.
烤kamo(鸭)，鸭肉包住cherry tomato，很香。。。 放进嘴里，不要直接咬，关着嘴巴5-10秒钟，你会嗅到那种烧烤味，咬下去那个tomato，跟拿鸭肉混在一起，可能小偏想烧烤想到疯了，感觉直接带我飞上青天～～
Previously a chef at Miraku, Chef Takahiro Kinoshita and his wife opens their own restaurant at Vantage. Here's the location. Please call to make reservation before you visit during the weekends.
To sum it up, this is a good authentic Japanese restaurant which I will definitely pay them another visit for their set lunch menu (They serve ala carte during dinner). I give this restaurant extra points because they serve 100% authentic Japanese instead of commercialised fusion food.
All above taste awesome and super delicious, especially Bee Hun Soup which is extremely strong in flavor. The best part of Xiang Yun dishes is the “meat” are nicely done texture and flavor.
Xiang Yun Vegetarian Delight (香雲素食坊) is one of the few vegetarian shops in Penang that also have elements of a café.
Visiting Xiang Yun Vegetarian Delight 香云素食坊 for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised by its approach of using vegetarian ingredients and making them into palate pleasing meal. Located on the first floor of Vantage in Tanjong Tokong, Penang, this is the third Xiang Yun outlet to open in Penang, after two other locations at Kompleks Lebuh Nipah and I-Avenue.
So wait no longer, hurry to your nearest Hakka Tree outlet and place your orders.
Without doubt the dish the rings the best when it comes to Hakka cuisine will be Thunder Tea Rice, or simply known as Lei Cha (擂茶) due to its pungent and greenish taste but somehow the version at Hakka Tree managed to tame us, particularly the fried version. When the fried brown rice is mixed with all the other compounded ingredients, it gives a smooth and refreshing taste, coupled with a natural and delectable fragrance. The Thunder Tea Rice Soup version on the other hand, is more of a classic Lei Cha. Pour the soup accordingly based on your tolerance on the greenish taste.
Char Kuey Teow was good. It has a good WOK HEI taste and I requested to have it with duck egg instead of Chicken Egg. Yum!! My colleague doesn’t know that Char Kuey Teow with duck egg will be damn good until I told her and when she tried mine, she was like “ WOW, SO GOOD” Char Kuey Teow @ RM 7
The price for the seafood here is seasonal, and we were charged RM 48 for half a kilo of fresh prawns and RM 60 for a kilo of crabs. Considering the restaurant is located at the prominent Tanjung Tokong area which had been influx by tourists, the price is relatively reasonable. Only one cooking method is being practised by the restaurant, which is charcoal baked and lightly seasoned with salts. This render the seafood produce retained its original taste, with a light smoky taste and a tad seasoning that elevated the flavour.
