It is always interesting to taste something new, especially with great company

Together with a group of friends, we had a meal of rich flavours, aromas and colours of Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine at Al Medina Moroccan Restaurant.

Located in Tanjung Bungah, Penang, the house converted restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating exudes a warm welcome.

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 newly opened Agua is another addition to the booming food scene at Straits Quay, Penang. This restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine with flavors from Morocco, Spain, France, Middle East and Italy. I recently visited this outlet as we celebrated the farewell of  beloved friends, Adam & Ryan.

We had our appetite well stimulated with several starters. The Agua Special was a platter of delicious imported sausages and ham packed with herbs and spices. Everyone enjoyed the taste of these finely sliced delicacies which was wonderful with the accompanied olives and cheese. This was indeed a perfect dish to start off with.
