Inside the restaurant, we were greeted with the triple arch doorway. The glass work on the doors were really impressive!
Our previous visit was marred by the lack of natural light for our photographs, so we made it a point to go there early to capture better photos. We were seated in the front part of the restaurant. Love the glasses and white colour feature throughout the restaurant.
After giving much thought to the wide range of menu choices, we finally made our pick. Our dinner began with the serving of tomato bread which is similar to those served in Ferringhi Garden. My personal recommendation? Have it for your every visit! Tomatoes were cooked up into a tasteful puree and I could not resist spreading the puree a little more each time on to my tomato bread.
Then came the good old salad. Unlike Friday’s salad which was Caesar Salad, Chef Liang tweaked his menu a little today and opted for fresh garden salad with fresh fruits and cherry tomato. Sweet!
This was the Caramelized Red Snapper, which does not carry a strong caramel taste as its name suggest. It is pan fried with a mix of herbs, different from the Pan-Sealed Snapper which I had on Friday. The reduced use of oil brought out the full flavours of the red snapper. Spinach and mashed potatoes completed the dish.
Desserts and coffee was similar as before, so I won’t bother writing about them here. Furthermore, we were looking forward to a full tour the museum. Now that we know our way around better, we discovered and rectified particular spots of photographic pleasure, and here are some of the photos for your enjoyment.
Penangites are definitely proud that Dato’ Seri Stephen Yeap Leong Huat has displayed his family belongings and sharing them with the public.
Antique items have a very soft spot in my heart, it always tends to bring up a nostalgic feeling. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We had a chance to catch up with Chef Liang and Chef Toh after the tour and had a chat which filled us up with more stories about the restaurant.
Like always, had a blast of a time too catching up with Dr and Mrs Alex Lim.
