Located along the busy Macalister Road, lies the beautiful modern grey color building with striking yellow strips on their window. A unique choice of artistic paintings and a selection of vibrant colours pillows to match their furnitures. Interesting choice of hotel setup to capture the hearts of young couples, budget travellers and food hunters. Glow Penang was newly built in late 2013. Being part of the Zinc, a hospitality management company built to provide comfortable bedding, basic gym access, free WIFI access, self served breakfast to go and great showers and amenities. Strategically being at the heart of the Pearl Orient, win the heart of tourists visiting Penang. On top of that, a fair price for such convenience is definitely something worth bragging about. So, what’s around. One road away from Burma Road, drop by New World Park for their hawker delicacies (Char Koay Teow / Asam Laksa / Curry Mee and etc …), or drop by the famous Abu Siti Lane coconut drink to quench your thirst or the famous Chee Cheung Chuk ( in New Lane which is 200 metres down away). If you are less adventures, Zest Bar & Cafe, take the elevator down to Level 1, to try their thai and western selection in their lunch menu.
Check out what we think about their western food here : -
Penang Camera Museum is known to be one of the main attraction spot in Georgetown, located at Muntri Street where the “Little Girl in Blue” mural drawn by Ernest Zacharevic is at. Launched on 31 Aug 2013 and officiated by the Penang Chief Minister in hope to create a better visualization for children in photography and eye opener for newbies. While walking thru the walls of the exhibition, one can immerse into the evolution of cameras from the eighteen century to the magic of photography in the dark room. Displaying a collection up to 1000 vintage cameras and accessories in the museum. They topped up with a toy camera corner where Disney cartoon meets vintage. What better way to end the tour with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in their cozy setting cafe.
Double Exposure Cafe is located at the last section of the Camera Museum in Penang serving assorted cakes, cupcakes, pies and light breakfast. Double Exposure Cafe served their drinks in camera lens cup which goes very well with the overall theme. Their concept is to have a chilling area after a 30-40 mins tour around the museum with simple wooden setup. Preferably small group for gathering, as they might not be able to cater a table of 8 or more.
Secawan ‘n’ such On Hutton is within walking distance from New World Park and just a few shops away from the famous House of Udang Galah situated along Hutton Lane. It primarily serves breakfast foods like pancakes, french toast and eggs benedict, not forgetting several pasta dishes which is almost a must for most cafe spots nowadays. Also, its refrigerated glass display by the cashier keeps all its cakes and desserts chilled and ready to be served in this hot Penang weather. We truly enjoyed the comfortable and cozy cafe setting in Secawan, not forgetting its thoughtful interior that leaves just enough space between tables for private conversations.
We were already running late, missed our lunch, hence we were thankful we found this place SUSHI ZENTO. It was also near their closing hours when we arrive at 245pm, but we were greeted with the warm smile from the employees in the restaurant. Assisting us to our seats and making sure that we have ample of time to decide on our late lunch before coming over to take our orders. However, the Kaiten belt has already stop operating when we reach.
Located in Precinct 10, Tanjung Tokong, Sushi Zento shares the same company with Azuma, Queensbay Mall and Edo Ichi, Island Plaza serving Japanese food. I like how each restaurants has their own unique BEST SELLING DISHES. Sushi Zento, serves pork (NON HALAL RESTAURANT) but the rest don’t. The restaurant has two main areas, the outdoor faces the happening Precinct 10 party while the indoor has the view of the chef on the counter slicing your tasty sashimi and the selection of sushis from the Kaiten belt.
