With a name like Meat Garage, no prizes for guessing what this joint specializes in. Next to Grape Garage, this new place at Museum Hotel specializes in churning out meat, particularly a good steak while its neighbor has some exclusive wines on the rack. Both shops belong to the same management so you can be seated at either place and order any items from either shop. Back to Meat Garage, while there is a fixed ala-carte menu, the meats are actually on display at the display fridge. They are weighed and individually priced so you will need to head over there and choose your piece of meat. Once the doneness is specified, it will be served to you in a jiffy. The ala-carte menu is a little small and revolves around meat either so if you are not a carnivore, look for somewhere else. Price points are slightly on the higher side (especially after the 10% service charge).

Best known for their Crispy Chicken, Marrybrown- Malaysia's largest homegrown Halal fast-food chain is taking a step further to introduce their new, delicious Sensasi Ohsem Smokey (S.O.S) BBQ Meals.

Many Thanks to Marrybrown for hosting us.

One of the hippest places to dine-in and take instagrammable photos would be Clock Eleven 二更, a seemingly curious and quiet restaurant along Magazine Road. The exterior of the place barely tells about what the restaurant could potentially offer and I guess that's probably one of the pull factors. It's easy to miss Clock Eleven, in fact, it can be found at the bustling Magazine Road, a short drive from the junction of Lim Chong Eu towards Magazine Road direction. The food menu is small and features a range of Japanese-influenced "Don" as well a Pasta dish. Though the price points seem to be mid-average, the serving portion is actually way smaller than expected. If you have a big appetite, you might need to order 2 portions.

One of the busiest breakfast spots at Jelutong is definitely Cui Xiang Lou Dim Sum 翠香楼点心, a new addition to Jelutong's food scene. The opening for Cui Xiang Lou attracts many early risers, mainly due to its wide range of classic Dim Sum offering and Chinese stir fry dishes. It's easy to locate this place, it occupies the corner lot of shop houses opposite to the Perak Road's wet market. Diners get to choose whether to be seated in the air-conditioned space or the outdoor dining area. The price points are middle average but given that the place is new, do not expect attentive service. In fact, you will need to fight your way to get your share of Dim Sum and have good patience before you get your dishes served (we waited 45 minutes for our noodles to arrive).

The name "Mamagoose" should not be new to those who frequent Hin Bus Depot, the brand made its first appearance in the form of food truck but has since moved into a shop with proper restaurant setting. The brand specializing in Taiwanese delights has since garnered an appreciate following- with regulars keep returning for its Taiwanese Beef Noodles and Dumplings. The menu has slightly expanded- with more stir fry options available. Price points are mid-average but the above-par food quality and comfortable homey dining atmosphere (but does not seem to be able to accommodate big groups) are some of the good reasons why you should check out this place.

If you get a good sense of comfort and satisfaction by munching down a crispy, flaky piece of pastry, you should put Le Bread Days on your watch list. Having established in Petaling Jaya a few years back, the brand has received overwhelming responses... particularly from its signature Molted Salted Egg Croissant. Fast forward today, the brand has expanded its business operations up north... to Penang. The Penang outlet can be found at Beach Street... a stone's throw distance away from the famous mural paint at Armenian Street. Like the PJ outlet, the Penang branch serves an array of artisanal bread and pastries... particularly Croissant and Danish. Not everything's great but if you are a fan of these pastries, you should check it out.

Found in a retro setting, Dong Guan Kopitiam 東館茶室 appealed to the public, portraying a modern vintage Cha Chan Teng (Hong Kong-styled Coffee Shop) but serving classic, old school Malaysian dishes. The menu sees an array of familiar dishes- ranging from Nasi Lemak to Fried Vermicelli Noodles or Hor Fun... as well as some Toasts, snacks etc. Prices are generally very wallet-friendly but both the service and food quality are lackluster. The place feels cramped and it does not feel like a place for an enjoyable meal... probably more suitable for casual quick fix.

Finding quality Western food in Penang does not necessarily require you to travel far or fork out high bills- Xii Chan, one of the new Western food joints is one good example. Established in July 2020, Xii Chan is manned by a very experienced team and offers an unbelievable array of Western dishes suitable for both social hangouts or casual quick fix. The Set Lunch is affordably priced from Rm 18.80 with a starter, main and a drink. There are plenty of choices, ranging from Chicken, Pork, Fish to Beef... as well as some Pasta choices; all are affordably priced that would not put a dent on the wallet. Definitely one great place where you can have quality Western food in a comfortable setting.
Many Thanks to Xii Chan for hosting us.
