Christmas Buffet @ SPOON, G Hotel Kelawai, Peanng

BBQ

Don’t worry, no one is harmed (including chef and the building) in the making of this photo. As a matter of fact, squid, king prawn, minute steak, lamb chop and Bratwurst Sausages are scrummy when grilled with charcoal. This is just a highlight of the upcoming Christmas Buffet at SPOON of G Hotel Kelawai (GPS: 5.43560,100.31005).

Merry Me New Menu @ Gurney Paragon, Penang

Fusion Ice (Signature Gula Melaka)

Art Nature Cafe @ ICT Mall, Komtar, Penang

Interior

For years, our impression about food in Komtar is that they are just some quick meals served by little shops hidden in corridors. While they are good for workers nearby, others may need a serene and cozy place for meetup or to rest their feet. Introducing Art Nature Cafe (GPS: 5.41417,100.32969) serving healthy food and handcraft coffee. We almost forgot that the busy bus station was just next to it until we walked out of the cafe…

Penang White Coffee

At first, we thought the staff was stingy by providing us chili paste less than a teaspoonful, just to find out later that it was actually for our own good. After all, they don’t want to have few dead bodies in the premise after dipping grilled chicken with world’s hottest chili.
