Heavy instagram users beware! The following shows some food pictures which are overly posted on instagram. For those who have yet to follow us on Instagram or any other penangite, this is a treat for your eyes.
Macallum Connoisseurs is one of the newest brunch/coffee place for all you early-risers, unless you plan to have it for lunch, in that case we don’t judge because we absolutely love brunches! As the name suggests, its located at Gat Lebuh Macallum, just along the Jelutong Expressway. Many would probably have notice this black building with solar panels newly built beside the temple.It’s strategically located in the heart of Penang a few hundred metres away from Komtar, Penang.
Limited tummies equates to short post and few food pictures but hey quality>quantity right? Good bagels are hard to come by in this small island we call home so we took a turkey bacon bagel, slice of cake and COFFEE OF COURSE.
Chow Thye Road has been busier than usual this year. One of the restaurant that caught my eye as we drove pass was the tastefully designed restaurant Basement 6. A restaurant that serves breakfast (8am – 11am only), lunch starts (12 noon till last call at 3pm) and dinner (6pm to 10pm).
We were sceptical initially, suspecting it to be one of those “nice to see only” cafes mushrooming in Penang. The patio area was designed to give the visitors a garden in the city ambience. We loved the little pots of plants accenting each table. For those who are already imagining the sweltering heat of the outdoors, fear not as the ceiling walls are raised high and abundant fans air the space. Diners can choose the indoor restaurant for the air-conditioned spot. We took the outdoor spot for the breezy wind and natural daylight while munching our breakfast. We had a heartily breakfast and diners can opt for their affordable lunch set / menu if one opt to laze on their bed on the weekends
We stopped by Weissbrau German Bistro & Bar for lunch before we do our shopping for Christmas along the quay. Situated at the North side with comfortable couches outside the restaurant overseeing the Quay side. For air-conditioned area, some might prefer to be seated inside with the unique wooden interior and the open bar concept. The restaurants serves a wide variety of German cuisine and delicious thin-crusted pizzas with a choice of different sides. They also have large platters to cater for big eaters / sharing between three to four people. What better combination to complete the meal with a pint of Hoegaarden or their imported draught of your choice. Not forgetting the most important point, it is definitely worth the value that we paid for the huge portion.
Miam Miam Restaurant located at one of the most strategic places in Gurney Paragon, beside Ben’s and nearby Pacific Coffee. This french japanese restaurant is known for their famous French Toast served in a unique metal-like bowl with whipped cream and maple syrup to go together. Our wait didn’t go in vain, eventhough it was 11am in the morning, very little guests, it still took about 20-30 mins for them to served this dish. Despite the price and wait time, the food definitely deserve a thumbs up. The menu choices are pretty limited too, but easy to read. If you can’t imagine the outcome, the picture says it all. Another MUST TRY in their list is the souffle. It is also in our to try list, when we have the opportunity to come back.
Bar B Q Plaza is a self-cooking Mongolian and Japanese style barbeque restaurant. Serving a selection of meats and vegetables where customers can choose to self-grill or steamboat. Bar B Q Plaza was established in 1987 by Mr. Choopong Choopojcharoen, who applied the long-famous Japanese-style barbecue in his restaurant. Bar B Q Plaza opened its 1st branch at Central Plaza Ladprao, Thailand. Slowly, Bar B Q Plaza became famous and grown internationally in 2005 in Malaysia.
Today, Bar B Q Plaza is opening another outlet in Queensbay Mall, after their first outlet in Gurney Plaza Mall, Penang. They serve beef, lamb, pork, bacon and the list goes on……Again it is the weekend, our cheat day ><. We ordered a mixed supreme set for the 3 of us.
Weekend is here again so that spells Food Hunting!
We decided to skip breakfast and gorge ourselves on the famous Marshall’s Burger. This non-halal joint is located beside Giant, opposite BMW on Burma Road and just along the main road. So, try not to miss the signboard
Just a random thought, it seems as if burgers are a hit in Penang lately, judging from the amount of burger joints sprouting up.
