Just recently, we get the first taste of Rasa Deli’s croinuts, a delicious merge of croissant and doughnut. The deli at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang is making the croinuts, a version based on the cronuts created by New York-based chef Dominique Ansel.

“The croinuts are made of laminated dough and deep-fried. The soft and layered interior is filled with fresh tangy lemony flavored pastry cream and its exterior rolled with flavored sugar,” says executive pastry chef, Dino Wan Teik Boon.

Having afternoon tea at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa in Batu Ferringhi, Penang is a real indulgence. I remembered my first noteworthy exposure with Rasa Sayang’s afternoon tea at the Rasa Wing Lounge.

It came with a 3-tier plate rack, with cakes, scones accompanied with cream and jam along with savory treats. Until today, the tradition of afternoon tea is still observed in both the Rasa Wing Lounge and the Spice Market Cafe over at the Garden Wing.

Feringgi Grill in Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa Penang is a picture of elegance, both in design and culinary servings. With its minimalist earth-toned interiors and Tudor-style ambience, the restaurant exudes an old-school charm. Antiques and old photos adorn the area and serve as conversation pieces, nicely complementing the breathtaking view overlooking the resort gardens, that of rainforest trees, the Andaman Sea and beach.

Having delighted diners for a good part of three decades, Feringgi Grill is fondly recognised as among the best fine dining restaurants in Penang. Located on the mezzanine floor of Rasa Wing, it has a semi-open kitchen and a custom-built round grill.

Heading its award-winning kitchen is chef David Pooley, who has over a decade of culinary experience in modern Australian and French cuisine. His impressive interpretations of fine dining were honed while he was a sous chef at Quay and Claude’s in Sydney. His mentors included Quay’s celebrity chef, Peter Gilmore and Claude’s Malaysian-born chef Chui Lee Luk.

I was greatly privileged to receive an invitation for a dinner with the great Dato’ Jimmy Choo! Just the very mention of his name and I am sure many of us will have our mind filled with the world renowned shoe designer who is based in London, United Kingdom. This famous Penang-born designer was recently appointed the Malaysian Tourism Ambassador and Tourism Ministry’s adviser by our Tourism Ministry.

Proud to say, being a Malaysian, Dato’ Jimmy Choo is in the best position to help promote Malaysia at the international level.
