Ginza Japanese Restaurant opened its doors in Vantage Desiran Tanjung in Tanjung Tokong, Penang recently. Occupying three units, this spacious restaurant with light touch of Japanese and relaxed atmosphere is a branch outlet of its Alor Setar restaurant. This outlet differentiate itself with its menu focusing on specialized range of ingredients flown in from Japan.

We had the pleasure of attending Ginza’s opening day where we drank some great sake and sampled dishes from its exquisitely designed VIP Course Menu.

Before the meal, we were offered the fugu fin sake. The experienced chef at Ginza has a license to serve this infamously poisonous blowfish. The warm alcoholic drink with lightly burnt fugu fins rendered a complex and not overly fishy taste.

Penang is a food haven and the variety ranges from appetizing hawker food, contemporary cuisine and of course, seafood. For those craving seafood meals, you’re spoilt for choice with the many seafood restaurants on both the mainland and the island.

Just ask around and the locals will proudly recommend their seafood places. There are some right on the beach with views of fishing boats and fishermen hauling in the day’s catch.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat Restaurant (Little Fat Lamb) was buzzing with diners when we visited the place for dinner. The steamboat restaurant which has developed a reputation of offering nice cuts of meat is located along Jalan Tanjung Tokong Penang, a few houses away from Starbucks Drive-Thru.

Raw meats and veggies are cooked in a pot of hot soup.  At Xiao Fei Yang, there is the herbal soup (RM23) and hot & spicy Mala soup. You can also opt to have the combination of both, priced at RM25.

Ordering is made easy with the ticking ordering system. We tick our choices of ingredients and in a short while, the pot of soup is set up the table. The Mala broth is hearty and fiery, boiled with lots of herbs, peppercorns, ginger and chillies. The herbal soup flavored with a mixture of Chinese herbs, garlic, longan and kei chee (wolfberries) is especially welcoming.
