In addition to consuming native avenue meals on Penang’s quite a few hawker facilities and small eateries, we additionally obtained to check out a couple of eating places serving worldwide dishes on the island. That is normally after we exit with Blissfulguro’s uncle and aunt who truly lives in Penang. Since they’re actually not too eager on avenue meals, to the shops and eating places we normally go.
SIGI’S BAR & GRILL ON THE BEACH BY SHANGRI-LA
|EATING OUT AT PENANG’S BATU FERRINGHI BEACH|
On a daytrip to Penang’s well-known Batu Ferringhi Seaside, we dropped by Shangri-La Golden Sands for lunch. Their beachfront restaurant, Sigi’s Bar & Grill, serves genuine Italian dishes and is a favourite hang-out for BG’s uncle and aunt.
|SIGI’S BAR & GRILL BY THE BEACH AT SHANGRI-LA GOLDENSANDS PENANG|
The restaurant has a sundown view of the seashore and has each air-conditioned eating corridor, a rooftop consuming space, and al fresco tables that connects on to the seashore. We, after all, went for the seashore tables.
|ANTIPASTI FOR TWO ~ MYR 28.00|
Italian fares quickly stuffed our desk; bruschetta 28, antipasti, bolognese, lasagna, and pizza. A little bit of disclaimer, I’m probably not a fan of Italian delicacies, so I’m actually not the very best decide for these meals.
For starters, the Conventional Bruschetta, the slices of toasted baguette topped with chopped tomatoes, primary, and garlic was simply okay for me. The Antipasti For Two, was completely not my cup of tea.
|SUPERB BOLOGNESE ~ MYR 48.00|
Subsequent up are the pasta. I personally ordered the Very good Bolognese, I feel it was truly actually good in the event you’re into Italian meals, however I’m probably not into bitter tasting tomato-based pasta dishes, so it’s a no for me. Their Layers Of Love, which is lasagna with beef and Mornay sauce, is best suited to my style buds—it’s a giant sure for me.
|LAYERS OF LOVE ~ MYR 45.00|
|THE GODFATHER PIZZA ~ MYR 50.00|
And eventually, their Godfather Pizza—beef pepperoni, rooster sausage, grilled rooster strips, and floor beef, combined with onions, olives, and mozzarella on a skinny crust. A giant huge sure. It’s satisfyingly good.
ROCKAFELLERS AT STRAITS QUAY
|THE STRAITS QUAY MARINA IN PENANG|
Among the best meals we had with regards to eating places in Penang was at Rockafellers at Straits Quay Marina—additionally they have a department at Georgetown which I feel is extra of a bar than a meals place. The restaurant has a premium location alongside the seafront on the Straits Quay Retail Marina, an upscale mall in Tanjung Tokong. Their posh darkish wood interiors has a shiny sunny al fresco counterpart—we went for his or her outside seats.
|ROCKAFELLERS PENANG AL FRESCO AREA|
Their menu consists principally of Indian delicacies with a contemporary take. In addition to the standard vegetarian and non-vegetarian Indian favorites, additionally they have Indian flavored pizzas and scorching plates.
|ROCKAFELLERS COMBO BIRYANI ~ MYR 52.00 | CHICKEN POPCORN ~ MYR 15.00|
C ordered their Rockafellers Combo Biryani, which is fragrant basmati rice cooked with both rooster, prawn, lamb or greens—she selected rooster. It was Murg Tikka Butter Masalafor me—amaretto marinated rooster tikka, simmered in easy tomato gravy—and paired it with plain naan. For the child, the Rooster Popcorn from their Youngsters Menu seems to be protected sufficient for him—that means, not spicy.
|MURG TIKKA BUTTER MASALA ~ MYR 45.00 | NAAN ~ MYR 8.00|
Serving measurement was enormous for the mains, however a tad too little for the kiddie meal. The biryani was actually good, and really spicy, and the identical will be stated for my butter masala. I did discover it to be lacking one thing, which is why I ordered naan bread to scoop its gravy with—I desire roti canai, actually, however they solely have naan.
Contemplating how industrial its location is, we had been fairly shocked at how genuine their dishes had been. We’d contemplating consuming right here each day, however then we noticed the costs on their menu, and determined, from time to time might be okay, lol.
