One of the latest hotels in Penang- Mei Hotel is a 3-star hotel in the heartland of Georgetown; its in-house restaurant- Silver Spoon Cuisine offers Western food with unbeatable price tags. For the months of March and April 2018, selected main courses are entitled to Buy 1 Free 1 Promotion. Taking advantage on the promotion, we paid a visit to the restaurant. Located on the 2nd floor of the hotel, the restaurant offers great aerial view on the bustling Abu Siti Lane; though the setting is not exactly top-notch, it's more than good enough for a casual meal. The menu is rather small and we thought the prices can be rather steep (without promotion)....
Rib Eye Steak (Rm 45)
Seafood Pesto Pasta (Rm 27)
Silver Spoon knows their Pesto Sauce well, the flavors were amazing; the herbaceous element was there, complemented with rich, cream-based sauce. A pity that the Spaghetti was over-cooked though we enjoyed the sauce a lot. It's hard to find Rib Eye Steak that costs below Rm 50 in Penang but as expected, the cut was a lackluster. Though the Red Wine sauce was beautifully done, the texture of the meat was somewhat disappointing. The meat was rough and the bite was less-satisfying. The Rib Eye Steak was served with a side of Potato Au Gratin and some greens. All in all, we have no complaints given the promotional rates but for usual rates, we thought they could do better.
