Thai Food @ Cherry Blossom

December 31, 2007

Jack and I visited Cherry Blossom on the Christmas eve. Cherry Blossom serves Thai food. It’s located in housing area, which is quite isolated.

We ordered a medium size belacan fried rice for 2, cost for RM9. Compared to previous visits, I found that the ingredient has been reduced, and the flovour has deteriorated compared to last time. Luckily it’s not too bad since we took some other dishes as well. Eating it alone definitely is not satisfying.

The appetizer, pandan chicken, cost for RM1.30 per piece. The taste is a bit weird, I think is because they add too much pepper. Besides, it’s over grilled, the corners are burnt.

cb-deep-fried-kang-kung.jpg
Thai style deep fried kang kung, cost for RM10. It’s my favorite dish to order during every visit. It’s sweet and crispy. You will find it very appetizing if eating together with the garnished onion, chili padi and dried prawns.

Prawn Tom Yam, consist of 4 big prawns and some mushrooms. The Tom Yam soup is flavorful and spicy. It cost for RM16.

Beach Street Nasi Lemak Review

December 27, 2007

Previously Beach Street nasi lemak is highly recommended by nasi lemak lovers in Penang. I blog about it sometime ago in May this year. Check this out.

Jack and I dropped by Sri Weld coffee shop again last week after settle some procedure at the nearby bank. We bought some ikan bilis and prawn nasi lemak for our lunch. We were damn disappointed on the taste. Smaller serving, less ikan bilis, and not spicy at all. It’s just like the ordinary road side nasi lemak. Where is the delicious, flavourful “hot and spicy” nasi lemak we had previously? I miss those…

Maybe you find that the photo doesn’t look much different, but the taste is. 😦 Just wonder whether the previous Beach Street nasi lemak has shifted to somewhere else. I will ask around to find out more.

Fisherman’s Grill Restaurant @ Sg Ara, Penang

December 26, 2007

Fisherman’s Grill is a nice place to hunt for delicious Western food. I always look forward for their set lunch, which is quite reasonable at RM14.90, with a choice of Fish/Chicken for the main course. For many, it is a popular place for farewell event as it’s not far away from the Bayan Lepas FTZ area. The peaceful environment will enable a nice conversation. I like their friendly service. The waiter will ask us whether the food is satisfying and he will also open the door and great us when it’s time to leave.

Here’s the set lunch that I have ordered the other day: Chicken set in mushroom sauce.

The lime juice, which has mixed with 7-up. It’s so refreshing.

fg-mushroom-chicken-creamy-soup.jpg
The chicken and mushroom creamy soup – I personally love their creamy soup. It’s really creamy, thick and tasty compared to Pizza Hut’s. You can easily get the mushroom or chicken in every scoop.

The garlic bread.

fg-chicken-set-1.jpgfg-chicken-set-2.jpg
The main course, grill chicken thigh with mushroom sauce. The serving is considered large for me. They use shiitake mushroom for the sauce instead of button mushroom. It was a fabulous meal for me.

fg-pudding.jpg
Dessert – the pudding.

Some other main courses that my friend and I ordered before are the oriental fried rice, the fish set, the mixed grill and the fisherman’s basket that consist of salmon and another type of fish, prawns & mussels. Among the all, I found that their chicken main course taste the best. Sometimes, their fish aren’t really fresh. 😛
