Chin’s Stylish Restaurant @ Penang

Fine dining (or something closed to, whatever your definition on fine dining is) are rare to come about in Penang, it’s even rarer if it’s Chinese cuisine. Come to think of it, I don’t think I had ever indulge in a fine dining restaurant that serves Chinese food. Does Ah Yatt Abalone Restaurant counts?

Hence, I am so damned excited when I learned about Chin’s Stylist Chinese Cuisine is about to open at Tanjong City Marina in Penang.

Suffolk House @ Penang

No, I am not visiting someone who is extremely rich, or visit a museum, this is Suffolk House, where I came to fill my tummy up. Just if you don’t know, Suffolk House was the first “Great House of Penang”, and serves as the residence of Francis Light, the founder of the British settlement on the Penang Island. It served as Goverment House in the 1810-20’s and critical political issues, such as the founding of Singapore was discussed here.

The environment here is really great, especially for a crowded place like Penang, where land is limited. By judging so many old trees around, and even a river (Air Itam River) beside it, one will think that it is located totally out of George Town, which was not.

Tarbush Restaurant @ Sunway Pyramid

I always like Middle Eastern food, and will go and have a try whenever I had a chance. However, many of my friends are not a fan of it, so although I saw Tarbush Restaurant at Sunway Pyramid for some time already, but only until recently I had chance to try it.

When we enter the restaurant, it’s basically empty inside. Not only that there are 0 customer inside, but I can’t see a single waiter inside too. However, we still head inside, only to notice that all the worker are actually having a meeting inside a room. This actually give me a bad impression on them, as although they saw us walking inside, non of them bother to stand up and greet us until I wave at them!

After we order our food, we were first served with the complementary nan and something to go with it. Nothing special though.
