Whenever the name Penang is mentioned, street food is the 1st thing that always come to mind. They are ever so available, cheap, delicious and choices are plentiful! Amazing!
Well, once in a while we have to sacrifice the good stuffs especially when we have younger ones traveling with us, like today. I wanted my “char koay teow” but wifey insist that we have a proper meal since it’s near dinner time, at least for the kids. With a “hidden” sigh, I relented, so, here we are ended up at this ok looking restaurant in Gurney Plaza.
Interior was comfortable, with a few different sections to choose from. We opted for the banquette seats next to the man-made pond which oversees the G-Hotel’s pool. View was good. Let’s move on to the menu now.
Braised Roasted Pork with Spicy Chili (燜辣椒燒肉套餐) (Menu D) @ RM 11.80 ~ Roast pork was good with its succulent meat and crispy skin. Chili padi and the delicious gravy made me wanting for more! An 8/10!
Sauteed Chicken with Basil Leaf (羅勒葉炒雞肉套餐) (Menu D) @ RM 11.80 ~ Knowing that wifey is not that satisfied with just 2 BBQ pork bun, I suggested she order another set meal with the assurance that I’ll help her finish in case she can’t. I ended up taking just 2 spoonful coz I was filled to the brim! This dish was quite alright too! A 7/10!
Overall, we were satisfied with the good food and the varieties they offered. Well recommended and definitely worth a visit! Besides this outlet, they do have another 2 more outlets offering steamboat and ramen. Hopefully I’ll have the chance to check them out in my next visit!
