Penang is blessed with a plethora of cuisines, and lately we discovered a new outlet that really stands out among the masses. Figo’s Restaurant recently opened its doors in Jalan Sungai Kelian housing area in Tanjong Bunga. The restaurant is a short distance away from Ingolf’s Kneipe German Restaurant, Vintage Bulgaria Restaurant and the Medan Selera Mutiara.

Listed on their menu is an assortment of sandwiches and heavier entrees with flavors of New Orleans, Texas, Mexico and signature dishes of Nyonya and Malacca-Portuguese.

Public Cafe is just another neighborhood coffee shop in the pleasant surroundings of Gurney Drive. Located next to the famed Song River Cafe, this coffee shop is a favorite spot for me as it has a stall that serves up both delicious yet reasonable seafood noodles and porridge.

Take a pick from the striking mix of ingredients and several types of noodles.  The prices varies according to the seafood ingredients, with pawns, crabs, paddy frogs (tin kai/chui kay) and varieties of fish.

My visit to Renaissance Hotel also features a dinner at the Japanese restaurant, Sagano and an introduction to the famed Chef Yasutoshi Ito. It was a privileged to have him assembling an exquisite progression of dishes: appetizers, sashimi and lobster roll.
