All enlivened by the presence of chef-manned stations where some Penang favourites such as asam laksa, satay, kambing panggang, char koay teow and pasembur are served.

Finding good food to eat around Gurney is increasingly difficult, especially so when we have spent the past two weeks loitering around the area hunting for new places for lunches and dinner. On top of that, having to eat something decent on a tight student budget with a place that has plenty parking space and air conditioning under this crazy weather just makes things that much more difficult.
We are mall rats for all the above reasons, and we aren’t proud of it. However, we have slowly run out of affordable places (that we aren’t sick of) to eat in Gurney Plaza/Paragon, until we found our life savior right in this restaurant. Relish is recently opened in Paragon just right above Starbucks, sandwiched between Lunarich and Savaro. Their specialties are centered on Malaysian dishes, so expect lots of santan in some creamy curry goodness.
Sadly, we visited on a weekend and missed all the awesome weekday lunch deals that they offer. Do read on and rest assured that you’ll be paying for just a fraction of the price we mentioned below if you happen to visit on weekdays! Don’t say we NO JIO!
We all love the taste of Char Koay Teow hot from the flaming wok or eating Chendol by the street amidst hordes of tourists. What we may NOT miss would be the hot, sweltering heat and the frustration of trying to get a parking space!
If you want a breath of fresh air, come visit Sarkies Corner where you can find all these favourite local specialties in one place. Basked in the ambience of the colonial décor, I would personally opt for a seat by the beautiful garden porch. Overlooking the sea, you can enjoy the sea breeze while sampling the local specialties. You can even walk off the calories along the garden post lunch overlooking the Penang Bridge.
A space previously occupied by the international buffet, Sarkies Corner now offers an expansive ala carte menu specially featuring an array of Western and Eastern delights. Be it small bites of Samosa or a warm bowl of Sup Ekor to a crispy skin Norwegian Salmon Steak, you will surely find a dish that can satisfy your every whim and fancy from Sarkies Corner.
Week 1: Roasted Chicken and Duck Rice And Popiah / Pie Tee
Simple Sarawak meal for lunch/dinner. Sarawak Kolomee has been a hit in Penang among FTZ folks. In the menu, the Original Kolomee with red char siew oil, Sarawak Laksa bihun type, freshly made wan tan dumplings, braised chicken and tofu. As this is not our first visit, we have concluded that the MUST TRY list should be part of our review.
