Located in the heritage zone of Stewart Lane in George Town, Nostalgie Cafe is housed in a restored two-storey prewar shophouse. This was my first time visiting the place which opened recently.

The owner has transformed the ground floor into a cafe with homestay upstairs, where several rooms will be opened to the public in the first quarter of this year. The cafe, with a cosy and relaxing setting, comes with al fresco seating in the air-well and indoor seating.

It’s about Nyonya food in a casual environment for Chinese New Year!

Ivy’s Kitchen is offering two Happy Chinese New Year menus to usher in the Chinese New Year festive season. Priced at either RM488++ and RM688++, the menus come with a wide range of comfort Nyonya dishes, free flow of rice and ‘Tee Kun Yeam’ Chinese tea.

We had the pleasure of enjoying the RM488 menu consisting of nine dishes – kerabu pomelo, fish assam pedas, kari kapitan chicken, prosperity salty duck soup, chicken roll, assam prawns, assorted mushroom in mix vegetable, joo hoo char and soya bean jelly with longan. The kerabu pomelo has pomelo, chili padi, coriander, Chinese chives and plenty of ginger flower. The taste was appetizing with offerings of sour and sweet notes and heat from the cut chilies.

1881 Chong Tian Cultural Hotel 中天酒店 is a restored Chinese heritage hotel, located along Jalan Pintal Tali (Rope Walk), Penang. This cultural hotel on PENANG’S UNESCO world heritage site features a rooftop bar, Eastern and Western restaurant, function hall, library and a museum with antique collections dating back to the 18th century.

I first arrived with some friends for a tour and a meal prior to its opening in December 2011. One gets transported back in time the moment you walk in the door of the refurbished pre-war house which was once a thriving hotel in the late 1800s.
