Hubby ordered the Friday’s Burger which was recommended by the waiter. The big chunk of grounded meat was tender and juicy, top off with beef bacon slices and cheese. The taste is very much better than those serve in burger chain stores. TGIF do serve great and tasty burgers.
And this was my lunch – Chicken Quesadillas. A piece of grilled tortilla with fillings of grilled chicken, beef bacon and melted cheese together with pieces of onions, tomatoes and red chilies. Served with sour cream and salsa.
I ate half of the tortilla and share the other half with hubby so that I have room for my favourite dessert – Friday’s Sundae. (I ordered this dessert during my last two visits too). Its basically vanilla ice cream topped with hot fudge and caramel, nuts and whipped cream… yummy…licious.
The food was excellent and the servings – quite LARGE !! It’s a great place to enjoy a full course meal or just having a light snack. We were so full after the meal that hubby suggested that we continue with our shopping (hopefully the walking will help to digest the food faster).
The place is usually crowded during weekdays and weekends with locals and foreigners. Customers have a choice to pick and choose their seafood from the rows of aquarium.
We ordered the fried fish (cui jiam), flower crabs, claypot fish with preserved vegetable and yam, fried vegetable with sambal and noodles. The steamed flower crabs came with pounded ginger and stripes of black fungus. Chinese wine was added to enhance the flavour. The crab meat was so firm and fresh. We ended up using our hands to eat this seafood.
We then had the claypot with pieces of fish head cooked with preserved salted vegetable, slices of yam, dried chili and plenty of leeks. We enjoyed its unique and appetising taste …
After that we were served another two dishes. The vegetable dish was a combination of long beans, star beans and lotus root fried with sambal. The lotus root was thinly sliced and tasted good. The fish (cui jiam) was fried until crispy.
We rounded up the dinner with fried seafood mee-tiau. Fried dried and not oily, the noodle went well with the accompanying spicy sambal.
This place with a cosy ambiance is suitable for entertaining friends or a dinner with the family. You get to savour delicious and FRESH seafood and at the same time enjoy the beautiful seaview. Price is a bit expensive but that depends on the type of seafood that you order.

We also had the stew pork trotter as a side dish.
Up to now, we still can’t find any stalls selling this dish in the island…. so whenever we feel like having yam rice, we will take a short journey up to BM to enjoy this delicious food.
* The stall has shifted to a new coffee shop located just nearby the old place. Do drop by Eleen blog’s for a detailed map to this place.

These bags can be used for keeping hand phone, tissue paper, spectacles…..I have given some of these items as presents/gifts for my friends and relatives on special occasion. They were very pleased with it.
I have gone as far as framing up one of the beads design as a picture to hang on the wall in my living hall.
These are miniature pillows with colourful flower design. I used them to brighten up small corners in cupboards and on table tops.
All the colourful beads, patterns and materials can easily be found in handicraft shops – Sin Seng Lee in Penang Road and Sin Soon Lee in Rangoon Road. It is an interesting hobby. It gives me a rewarding feeling looking at them.
Do give your views and ideas on beads and cross stitch sewing and I would be happy to share mine with you too.

My hubby used to buy more for keeping in the refrigerator because they do taste nice even when its taken cold. One of the stalls selling this snacks can be found at night at the junction of Penang Road and Chowrasta Road (directly opposite the police station).
Beside the entrance of the restaurant is the open kitchen whereby we can see the chefs preparing the food.
We had a few dishes and I particularly like the black pepper beef tenderloin and their famous crepe durian pancake (durian flesh wrapped inside soft crepes). If you happen to be dining here, do order this pancake. You can’t find it as delicious else where. The service provided by the staff was of course excellent (A1) and the food was real tasty… all thanks to my brother for the lovely and delicious dinner.

We had the ham & bacon quiche and the shepherd’s pie from the day special menu. The shepherd’s pie consists of hash brown potatoes and lots of minced lamb and fresh garden salad.
The savory quiche pie was equally good. It features ham and bacon serve with fries and fresh garden salad too. We were very impressed with the quality and taste. Both pies were delicious.
For dessert we had their famous and well known “sticky dates pudding” and also the “impossible pie”. They were served warm, top-up with butterscotch sauce and a large scoop of ice cream. They were sweet, rich and moist.
The Green House is opposite the Hong Kong Shoe store.
