RICE Etc... at Straits Quay

RICE Etc. 01

It's somewhat hidden away from the other restaurants inside Straits Quay. We searched and walked round and round in Straits Quay before reaching the restaurant... perhaps we came from the marina side instead of the main entrance. If you're coming from the main entrance at Straits Court, look to your right, it's located at the first floor. If you're coming from the other side (Quay West), try to search for the Apple Switch store, it's across the walkway down the corridor.

Good Friend Seafood Bayan Lepas Penang 好友海鲜 - 2nd branch of Good Friend Seafood Teluk Kumbar

*2nd branch ceased operation.

Good Friend Seafood Teluk Kumbar had established their second branch at Sungai Tiram Bayan Lepas!! You can now have lunch instead of waiting until dinner time to taste their scrumptious seafood.

Good Friend Seafood

Mini highlights about this branch which is located right at the Bayan Lepas FIZ area:
i) Ample parking space 8am - 5pm(RM1 per entry), after 5pm free parking. The parking rate information provided is accurate at this point of time and may not be the same in the future.
ii) This branch provide outdoor delivery (lunch hour only) to Bayan Lepas factory workers with minimum order of 10packs @RM6.50 (3 dishes + rice) per pack. (Dishes customizable is allowed)
iii) Catering Service : minimum 60 persons. 30pax to 50 pax (self collection)
iv) Seating Capacity - Ground floor 10 table x 10pax; 1st floor 10 table x 10 pax

This new branch is a more proper chinese restaurant compared to the origin where it's with open air seating by the seaside of Teluk Kumbar.

The credit for this successful food tasting session goes to...
- the brainchild of Good Friend Seafood - Lum
- the team of "What to eat today?" from
- our Penang floggers 'tai lou' Criz Lai.

Now let's look at the highly recommended dishes.

a) Steam Grouper 石斑清蒸 (钓)- RM80/kg

Santorini Cafe Penang Burma Road 爱琴海 - more than just a dining place

This is an invited review by to Santorini Cafe. Because of the name Santorini, I've always wanted to pay a visit to temporarily satisfy my desire of travelling to Greece... such a romantic name for a cafe. This was my first outing with the Penang top floggers (food bloggers)~ Super fun!! And this officiates Princess Cheryl as a member of Penang food blogger community. Yeah~~

We were amazed that with so many items we tried during the food tasting, there were still loads more in the menu to be explored. In brief, this is a place worth visiting if you would like to try different varieties of home-cook meal (no MSG). I like the relaxing ambiance where most of the walls are colored blue. I believe it is also a cozy spot for chit chats in the afternoon.

Roadhouse Grill Gurney Tower Penang

Roadhouse Grill collage 01

Roadhouse Grill has been around for years but this is the first time we dine there. Probably because I've been a little too obsessed in doing food review around Penang. The bunch of food bloggers that I know of are driving the "uuhmph" in me to crave for more...which I'm quite worried at first -- putting on weight just before my wedding!!

But it seems like having our new home made me exercise so much intensively (1-2 hours of house chores almost daily for both of us, even more intensive than going to gym...). Seeing me slimming down so much actually drove my parents nuts, and they thought I was trying to go on diet. IN FACT I DID NOT mum... I eat even more nowadays... I'm not thin, just toned up.

You will find fascinating decoration with neon lights and a Cowboy figurine sitting right at the entrance of the restaurant. The restaurant concept is basically like dining in a Cowboy ranch..
