It is always nice to see my work in print. This time around my article was published in the Hong Kong Express’s airline UO Magazine, which covers lifestyle topics – travel, leisure, shopping, food adventure and people. The airline, a Hainan Airlines’ subsidiary company has opened a new route to Penang on 27 October 2013.

I was first approached by personnel from Ink, a Singpaore-based publisher to write a story on Penang’s Top10 Eating Experiences. The food story including colourful photos was eventually featured in the inaugural issue of the magazine (December 2013).

It had been a while since I visited The View in Hotel Equatorial Penang. The restaurant which offers classic French/Mediterranean cuisine has recently unveiled its refreshed menu. Executive chef Philippe L’Obry and sous chef Looi Soon Lee worked well in bringing their food styles together. The new dishes and hearty classic dishes are prepared with several notches above what was originally served.

The restaurant’s semi-buffet menu remained unchanged, still with one main course from the a la carte menu, and unlimited helpings of delectable appetizers and desserts. The buffet spread is lay out in small portions and replenished as soon as the previous batch runs out.

The spread of cold succulent seafood include large prawns, oysters and scallops. The oysters with briny flesh are just perfect with few drops of lemon juice.

The One located in Bayan Lepas, Penang is lined with massive rows of new shophouses. Most of the outlets are dedicated to food and beverage. Among them is Wheat Connection Bakery. Opened a few months ago, Nazeri Ismail is the proprietor and pastry chef in charge.

Many would be familiar with Nazeri, the former executive pastry chef at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang. He has created many cakes for the Penang state governor’s birthday celebrations and all are wonderful works of art.

“It has been a long baking journey of over 20 years and it is time I start my own bakery,” said Nazeri.
