Essenze Magazine is a prestigious magazine featuring a vibrant mix of fashion, people, luxury, and many more. An article on Maple Palace Restaurant in Penang appeared in Vol. 34-14 and I had been interviewed for the article.

The interview over lunch at the Chinese restaurant with gracious host Vivien Teoh and Tan Loy Sin was documented and also with photos taken.

This is the version of the article – A Flair of Flavour…

 

 A FLAIR FOR FLAVOUR

In a land where spicy street food and Hokkien cuisine rule supreme, there is one heavyweight champion that is slowly turning the tide by introducing impeccable Cantonese Szechuan cuisine in a classy setting that is fit for a king. Set in Maple Gold Club, a grand heritage mansion tucked in the millionaire’s row of Penang’s swanky Northam Road (or Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah), is Maple Palace Restaurant. The restaurant has made a name for being one of the top places frequented by the well-heeled millionaires and socialites of Malaysia’s high society.

The proprietor and head-chef of Maple Palace, Tan Loy Sin, or Loy as he goes by, recently hosted celebrated food critic and writer, C.K. Lam, and EZ to sample the restaurant’s new menu.

Lam, who runs one of the most visited food websites in Malaysia is widely regarded as an authority on the Penang food scene and has written for numerous publications in Malaysia and beyond.
