This time around a few food bloggers and myself were invited by well known and talented bakers, Big Boys Oven to do a review at the Shanghaineses Restaurant, Dragon-i at Queensbay Mall, Penang. This restaurant is famous for their many varieties of non-halal Shanghainese cuisine.

I was looking forward to do this review as I still remembered not too long ago I was indulging myself with family and friends on their Mid-Autumn Festiva Banquet set meal which all of us truly enjoyed.

***The restaurant has since closed down.

Neww BT Food Court was recently opened in Burma road, just next to the Wesley Methodist Church and stone’s throw away from Giant hypermarket. Inside the food court, there many stalls selling varieties of hawker food like hokkien mee, char koay teow, chicken rice, beef noodles, popiah, curry mee, dim sum, western food, economy rice, rojak and many more. Some of them operate in the day while others at night. Parking spaces are aplenty and it is free. Although being new, the ambience and the cleanliness is better compared to other outlets.

There are so many stalls for us to explore and we started off with the Western Cuisine which operates only in the night.


A plate of Grilled Black Pepper Chicken Chop – RM7 from the Western Cuisine stall. The chicken is perfectly grilled and laid on top of a bed of french fries. I am very impressed with the way they present the food even though it is in a food court.



I added in the sauce gradually as I do not fancy having the piece of chicken soaking in it. Observe the artistically decorated meal, really tastefully done. :D

Tucked away in the tourist belt of Batu Ferringhi, Penang stands Mario Ristorante. It is known for its Italian cuisine with a wine list to suit many palates and dining comfort. Although it has been established a number of years, not many Penangites have yet to discover this lovely place.

Located on the same row as Bella Italia and The Eclectic while standing directly opposite Rasa Sayang Hotel, Mario’s naturally draws in the tourists crowd.



This was our first visit to Mario’s and we had Michael joining us for the dinner. There are indoor and sidewalk sittings. We sat indoor as the weather was a bit warm. The interior design is extremely cozy with warm colors, giving this place a very Italian-nish flair.

Zhonghua Restaurant, Penang

   Posted by: CK Lam    in Chinese, Penang, Penang Restaurant, Pulau Tikus

Zhonghua Restaurant is located at One-Stop Midlands along Burma Road in Penang. It is on the first floor of the building, just right beside Berjaya Hotel. At the time of the dinner (last Saturday), the restaurant is offering a 50% promotion for its Peking Duck dish. This definitely is a bonus to those that loves this cuisine.


The dishes for the night were of course the Peking Duck, Black Pepper Duck, Mixed Vegetables and Spareribs.





The naked Peking duck with its crispy skin was sliced in front of us. It makes up a plate in which everyone of us gets a few pieces each.


The plate of crispy duck skin was served with a basket of pancakes, spring onions, cucumbers, carrot sticks and hoisin sauce. A bit oily but goes well with the pancake. This time around, we requested for the remaining duck to be fried with black pepper, a different way as compared to our previous Peking duck dish at Midland Court Restaurant.


This is the succulent Chinese Pork Spareribs, marinated tastefully with mouthwatering flavor.  We were given a set of fork and knife to cut up the meaty rib which is very tender (just like dining in a western restaurant). Every one of us loves it.



Zhonghua Restaurant is an excellent dinning place for delicious food especially the Peking duck and Spareribs. The dinner cost around RM140. As most of you would know, there is also a restaurant in Cititel Hotel that goes with the similar name. I am not sure about their ties however these two restaurants serve slightly different cuisines respectively as mentioned in my older post.

During our stay in Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur we had the opportunity to dine in a pivate room at Lai Po Heen chinese restaurant. This chinese restaurant with prices on the slightly high end has an elegant ambience.

Beside the entrance of the restaurant is the an open kitchen whereby chefs are seen preparing the food.

We had a few dishes and I particularly enjoyed the black pepper beef tenderloin and their signature crepe durian pancake (durian flesh wrapped in soft crepes). If you happen to be dining here, do order this durian pancake. You can’t find it as delicious elsewhere.

Thanks to my brother for the delicious meal.
