Western Cuisine

Browsing
I have always wanted to try this Jemput tree out, so when I reach Pg directly ask my friend meet me here. Get to know that they serve local and western cuisine so should be not a bad place as usually I drive pass by.
When I reached there I am pretty surprise how they decorate the place as usually drive pass through then can just have a glance. This is the main entrance to the hang out area which is very interesting.

Their beverage area to serve drinks.

The seating area have a few style which you can choose too, as nearby the entrance there all the tables in the middle is filled with sand and sea shells and lights around it. So would be like mini candle light place.
This is one of the private hut that can accommodate around 6 pax. Since we were there early and not many people so we get to choose the place. Very nice and cozy area to chat and hang out among friends.
After sited down and walk around only realise that the have another lagi private 1 which is on the 1st floor. Cool, maybe some where in the future will tag my friend here for celebration of b’day. lol~

They serve western,pasta and local cuisine. Price is reasonable.

Order the drinks of ‘Ice Lemon Tea’ and ‘Sour Plum Iced’. Both of the drinks are up to expectation as both also priced at RM3.50 each.
As I was quite full from very late lunch, so my friend order ‘Mushroom Soup with garlic bread’. Would not really introduce this soup as it is thick but then not much taste. More like milk taste and taste a bit weird. The garlic bread is nice, maybe can order separately. RM5.90 for this.
Outside from restaurant, I would recommend this dish ‘Polo Funghi. It taste very nice, had the taste of the sweet tomato with the blend cheeze definitely a good selection. Only RM 14.90

Then I order the Tomyam Noodle’, as you get to choose Maggie Noodle, Bee Hoon or Mee. Quite alot of ingredients inside, with prawns, mushroom, and veggies but as always the prawn is not fresh in most of the stalls for tom yam soup. The taste of the soup is more sour than spicy, if they add a bit more spicy it will be just nice. RM7.90 for this.
As in the end, the bill comes in total of RM36 which I think is reasonable for the environment they provide yet the prices is not extremely expensive or cheap.

Remarks: Please wear long pants, if not the mosquito will enjoy food fest.

I get to know this place during my last trip back to Penang during Chinese New Year and came across that I peep from the outside entrance and caught my attention that I will try this restaurant during next trip. So here am I back to Penang again. As I got a review from my friend, as he celebrated his Valentine Day here, he gave a good feedback, good environment and food not bad.

I did not know they got awarded. Click to view..lol

I reached this place and full of mist and feel like in Penang hill, nope, was just accidentally caught by my camera effect and thought it is nice just post it up.

When I walked in here, I thought this was the area of having dinner but then see see the place so empty, aii…like wrong place like that, but turn out to be a Salsa bar, got to know it after I finish my dinner as there are a few couple having fun with their Salsa dancing which is pretty cool. Salsa lovers, here might be one of the place to hang out.
As you walked in, you will just fall in love with the environment that they have, very environment friendly and it is just so nice that you can sit there and eat and chat for the whole night.
This is one of the best place to walk with, it is full with flowers scent which is so refreshing with the mixture of water lilies, roses, sunflower and don know what other other.
It was raining that day so cant really enjoy sitting outside which make it a bit dissapointing so have to dine indoor. If not can enjoy the sound of the waterfall. For those people who enjoy cam whoring, totally highly recommend this place.
They did not use candle light as the romantic thing instead I find it interesting which is using the mini oil lamp to put on table. It was very classic though. Did thought of stealing it back..kekekke
Their interior was pretty classic classy, with wood table and chairs, a cosy environment to dine in especially with the one you love or your close friend to celebrate any occasions.
As usual, I will start my meal with a soup as this is the ‘Mushroom Soup’. It was quite a big serving so for a couple would encourage to be shared. This soup you can really taste wild mushroom, which is so not nice we only manage to finish half cause it had one weird taste. Do not know how to describe.
This is complementary from the house as what I have been told but seems like it comes with the soup if not mistaken. I would called it Cheeze bread’ cuz no garlic in there. Very nice cheezy baked taste. Freshly from the oven.
Here comes our main course, as we decided to share, do not know what to eat as during some where already eat some apong, mua chi before coming up. Ordered this because have 3 selection in there, it is called Ferringhi Mixed Grilled’. Tried the salmon, and it was bad, not fresh, overcooked, fish smell very strong, again I ask the waitress to come and ask them get a new piece for me as told them not fresh, well, manage to get me a new piece of salmon after waiting of 30 minutes, sure do the second piece is much better, the fish meat is much softer even though it is over cooked again, the salmon gravy on top just goes along very well.
Second is the lamb, well, we do prefer the lamb has the very strong smell of the lamb whereby alot people do not prefer, as it will go along very well with the mint sauce. So the lamb was well marinated to cover up the lamb smell, so we were quite disappointed on it. For people who do not like lamb with the strong taste, so I would highly recommend to order here.
Third piece is the chicken, the first thing when I use my fork to poke it in, Shit..overcook again. What is wrong with the chef in here la..every thing that I have is like overcook or is it their style of cooking. What the hell. No quality. The chicken was spread with some garlic spread on top. It would be very nice if the chicken is cooked 80% from the condition that I got then will be perfectly nice.
The potato with sour cream doesnt not taste good, the whole dish for this we were totally disappointed, lagi lagi with the price tag slap on this dish RM72.80. We feel that it is over price which make the quality of the food and the pieces that served out comes to be DAMM EXPENSIVE!!!!!
I always end my meal with a desert if not, I will feel like my meal is not complete. Ordered this ‘Home Made Creme Brulee. A big plate serve with small little potato portion. Do not mind on it but the best thing was the taste of the brulee is cold. Shock us abit. As all the time we dine it is warm with the top crust is fire burn to make the crust crispy, so it taste more like a pudding. Did not finish the desert also even thought it was so bloody small cup with the price of RM17.80. Maybe it was their style to make it cold.
It is because of the great environment they have I would give them 9/10 for that, but I cannot deny that I have bad experience in the dining for this restaurant, maybe I did order the wrong dish, will come back again to try some other food during special occasion and the best thing as they do offer other ala cart as low as RM11 such as Fried Rice and so on. So please do not think that this place is gonna be expensive. They offer from local food to western or even can order a few fried dish and rice and eat along. The total bill that came out was RM 124.
As for last, I must thank that waitress for serving us so well, as she had been very helpful. Thank you even though I do not know your name.
After they meal, we head to second round which is Sunset Bistro just in front of the restaurant.

Do not know what to eat most of the time as I can say like I am at Pavilion most of the time. So only stalls that I have not tried in the food court, so try this western cuisine for today.

I ordered ‘Black Pepper Chicken’ served with half chicken. It is not bad, would not rate this as bad, the chicken meat is soft and juicy with the gravy of black paper sauce they pour over it. The mash potato is nice with the gravy, if without taste bad. The price for this lovely dish is at RM13.90nett.
