The Sire Museum Restaurant, Penang


The Sire Museum Restaurant in the financial district of Georgetown is open to the public recently after a soft opening. The restaurant is inside a building ideally situated in No.4, King Street which belongs to the Yeap Chor Ee family.

This building has been restored and beautifully refurbished and turned into a museum cum restaurant which serves delicious food.

We celebrated Father’s Day two days earlier at this beautiful restaurant.

The fine dining restaurant on the ground floor is managed by the same owner of Ferringhi Garden. We had a chat with their Executive chef, Mr Yeoh Woei Liang who also runs the kitchen in Ferringhi Garden. We learned that even though it is under the same management, the menu and the food has been developed differently for each restaurant respectively.

This is the view that greeted us when we stepped inside.

Moving further in; the second section of the dining hall which is simply breathtaking. The high ceiling and the white glass panel wall at the rear give us an impressive feeling. The whole hall was tastefully decorated with freshly cut flowers and well tended plants.

The complementary basket of garlic bread and the plate of salad was a pleasant start to our dinner.

To start off our dinner, each of us had a share of the Baked Cheese on Smoked Salmon sandwich.

I opted for the Baked Pan Sealed Red Snapper which is infused in olive oil with fragrance garlic and seasoned with salt & pepper. It was aromatic, light and fresh tasting.

My son’s plate of carbonara spaghetti with turkey ham and assorted mushroom and seafood, tasted superb. It was garnished with chopped herbs and grated cheese. With a tinge of spiciness, this dish tasted much better and different from the usual creamy carbonara spaghetti.

Hubby had the Lamb Shank braised in tomato concasse with mirepoix – which is a blend of Tuscan herbs. It is served with pistachio mint sauce. Hubby just love its tantalizing aroma.

As there was an opening promotion (read below), ice-cream and coffee was on the house. Nice!

The surroundings of the dining hall is brightly lit with potted plants hanging from the wall. What was more impressive was the dinning area which was restored and designed to give their customers a modern and contemporary atmosphere with a bit of the olden days charm. This mixture puts one into a sense of calmness and relaxing experience.

After the meal, we took a tour around the museum of the upper floor which is filled extensively with the family heirlooms, pictures and paintings. More can be view at this post, which is solely about this museum. Here is a peek on what’s in store.

Beautiful ambiance, soothing music and delicious food plus the friendliness of the staff makes The Sire an ideal venue for lunch, dinner or a snack. Our first visit at The Sire is definitely one to remember for us especially so when it is to celebrate Father’s Day.

This stylish restaurant is currently having a special opening food promotion from now till 21st June. Customers gets to enjoy free appetizer, dessert and coffee or tea for every main course.

Happy Father’s Day to all!
