32 at The Mansion, the town’s well known fine dining restaurant is one of those places where you want to treat yourself to a fine dining experience. Within its premises is Beach Blanket Babylon, a beach side bar and restaurant which is charming in terms of its outdoor setting with view of the sparkly sea.

Menus for both 32 at The Mansion and Beach Blanket Babylon are done by executive chef Mathijs Nanne, with no shortage for choice. We sampled a variety of dishes from the menus.

Beach Blanket Babylon’s menu is exactly what you would expect from beach side bar. It is a bit more casual with plenty of finger food. We started off with the canapé and gougeres which are served on a rectangular tile. The canapé arrived with smoked salmon served over crisp baguette toast, smoked duck spring roll and tuna croquette. This dish is served with the all-time favorite sun-dried tomato aioli.

An ambiance of calm and tranquility with stunning charm welcomed me as I walked into Suffolk House which is known as the first “Great House of Penang”. This recently restored 200-year old Anglo-Indian architectural building was built on the estate owned by Captain Francis Light, the founder of British settlement of Penang.
