The Asahi event kicked off last week at the Carlsberg Brewery and upon arrival we were greeted by Mr.Asahi the robot~

I believe many of you have not met Mr.Asahi, the World’s First Ultra Robotic Bartender which can serve a lot more than a normal bartender can at a time. He is capable of opening bottles and pulling 300ml pints and can, serve up to 16 half pints or bottles at a time in less than 2 minutes.

Asahi is a very well known brand in Japan and Asahi Super Dry is now available here, brewed exclusively by Carlsberg Malaysia in Shah Alam.

Before the event started, those who came early were lucky enough to catch the Brewery Tour. But that was just the beginning of an eventful night!

And of course, what better way is there to start off the night than to have a pint of Asahi Super Dry fresh from the tap.

It is brewed with a unique karakuchi style to give a clean, crisp & refreshing taste with no bitterness at the end.

The event officially kicked off with a welcoming speech from the gorgeous Emcee.

After everyone had their meals and were all ready with a pint in hand, the first round of performance by the Asahi dancers performance started and it was pretty impressive!

Here comes the participant contemplating on whether to join the dance-off or not. Jackie was being persuaded to join. .

All of us cheered for him . . His dance moves were pretty good too, which I think is definitely better than mine. (click here, my previous Asahi post with my robot dance video)

Jackie won himself a prize too along with all the other participants. It might look easy to dance but it’s actually really tough as this dance move takes up a lot of body energy, and is challenging yet interesting. Groovey~

Last but not least, here’s a picture of the great people behind Nuffnang. Great to see some of them there 🙂

Before we left, we were given a special door gift containing a can of Asahi, a coaster as well as their really cool signature glass.

Special thanks to Asahi for the wonderful night, and I hope there are more events to come!

Not many people like this dish, Bitter gourd fried along with salty duck egg and mince meat, as the bitterness of it had prevent many people on liking it including me, I used to dislike this dish yet I have been tought on how to enjoy it. Since then, I do order it when I have the change. A dish that fried simple that bitterness of the vegetable is not too strong and mix well with the taste of salty duck [email protected] RM 12

Another one of their signature range is their curry. So we ordered on their Curry Fish (sting Ray) @ RM 23, As I like how my Asam fish is sourness is stronger and after taste of it is a bit spicy at the end. Curry gravy is not too thick and to mix with your rice to eat along is just perfect~ – Recommended

One of my friend always dine here and he never miss this dish which is 3 steam egg. Different types of egg which is (century, duck and normal egg) to steam on it. A dish which is very simple, fragrant as just add on some garlic oil on top then add on some soy sauce, you will enjoy this simple dish alot~ @ RM 6

At Tek Sen, which is a restaurant that many of my friends love to dine and no doubt too that they have gain international popularity from a few types of magazine came by to feature them. A place to hunt if you are looking for nice homecook meal without disappointing.

On the set back about this place is there are very limited parking space available around the area and no matter during lunch or dinner its always super pack! It is advise to go early to enjoy full range of their food list as the later you went, there will be some dish sold out.

another recommended restaurant in Penang.
