Georgetown Wines is one of the new wine bars in Penang, located in a charming setting of an old refurbished mews. The wine bar offers exquisite selection of Old and New World wines, ranging from the established labels to artisanal boutique.

The Georgetown Wines is by name associated with wines but food is also an attraction itself, with creations by chef Aldrien Moh.

On our second visit to Georgetown Wines, a selection of red and white have been selected to accompany the menu.

The evening simply begins on a bubbly note, with a glass of Pommery Brut Royal. The refreshing full-bodied champagne from the French Champagne in Reims awaken our palate for the next course.

From there, we were introduced to the 2012 Domaine Joblot Givry 1er Cru Clos de la Servoisine. This is one white wine that grows on you. Made from the grape variety Chardonnay B, the dry wine was enjoyable on its own and also paired well with the small plates.

We had two small plates, starting with the Parsley and White Wine Clams. The dish will lead you to think of clams cooked with chopped parsley and garlic. The added Sauvignon Blanc brought some nice acidity.

This seafood dish can easily be made into a light meal with a crusty loaf of bread.

The Spanish Bikini is a Spanish dish of cheese and ham toasties. The combination of white bread with white truffle oil, jamon serrano and manchego cheese was served piping hot. It was appetizing, with the ingredients melded together with a kick of cheesy creaminess.

We shared the Spaghetti Aglio Olio, a simple pasta dish served topped with shaved parmesan and a good grind of black pepper.

Prepared with garlic, extra virgin olive oil and finely chopped parsley, the added red chillies gave the dish a nice spicy bite.

The Rosemary and Anchovy Grilled Prime Rib is a true indulgence. While having the right balanced of taste, chef Aldrien also emphasises on the grilling method and resting time of the meat. Cooked to perfect medium-rare, the 300gm 100 Days aged grain fed Australian prime rib has chopped rosemary played against the saltiness of the anchovies.

Served with mustard and asparagus, the evenly pink meat with feisty notes was deliciously moist and tender, and goes well with the 2013 Merlot from Rawson’s Retreat. This red wine with fresh and vibrant flavors displayed varietal aromas of cassis and liquorice.

A final gesture by chef Aldrien was the GTW Churros – long fluted deep-fried fritters. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, the churros were delicious when dipped in the accompanying velvety dark chocolate sauce.

Our recent discovery is 9-Ten Thirsty Hen, a casual cafe located in Permai 32 in Tanjung Bungah, Penang. Launched a couple of months ago, the simple outlet sporting the hen image offers reasonably-priced, comfort food.

Dinner guests will experience dishes at the family-owned cafe, taken care by siblings Visarn Noel and Uppasara Nicole.

Nicole takes care of the front while brother Noel and his friend Shane Chee are the chefs who make what comes out of the kitchen. Both the chefs proceeded with cooking from scratch – including curing ham and bacon.

We had a great night out with some friends on our first time visiting the cafe. To get things started, we shared two salads. The Caesar Salad served topped with grated cheese comes with combinations of lettuce, hardboiled egg, toasted croutons and house-made bacon.

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.

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.
