Clock Eleven 二更 @ Magazine Road, Georgetown, Penang.

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. 

Homemade Chicken Luncheon Meat and Sausage Rice Bowl 二更午餐肉 (Rm 14.90)

Smoked Duck Hokkaido Scallop Rice Bowl 烟熏鸭北海道干贝 (Rm 24.90)

Truffle Garlic Capellini 黑松露天使细面 (Rm 14.90)

We tried 2 of their Rice Bowl dishes- Homemade Chicken Luncheon Meat and Sausage Rice Bowl and Smoked Duck Hokkaido Scallop Rice Bowl. Both were served using Japanese Buttered Rice... and that explained the slightly wet, mushy texture (not as firm as they should be). We enjoyed the Smoked Duck variant better than the other; we thought the combination was better. The extra touch of Japanese Furikake (Japanese Rice Sprinklers) added another layer of flavor to the dish. Apart from that, the flavor combo was quite straight forward. Interestingly, Clock Eleven offers homemade Chicken Luncheon Meat... quite an unusual offering as most of the times, Luncheon Meats are made of pork. Clock Eleven's rendition was alright, though we would prefer the texture to be firmer. As for the Rice Bowl, the combo felt a little dry in texture, a little Japanese sweet Soy sauce would be great.
