The Sire Museum Restaurant

Another well-known themed restaurant, The Sire Museum Restaurant, catering an array of Western dishes in an atmosphere so serene, you would just go for a drink or dessert. This place reminds me of The China House with almost similar decoratives and ambience but more choices on its menu.

its menu properly wrapped in leather skin

mixed fruit juices at RM9.80 per glass

seafood linguine RM22.80 (sauce is superb but the smell of Basil leaves is a little too strong especially for those who are not keen in herbs)

carbonara spaghetti RM22.80 (very well-blended with the choices of seafood)

lemon-grass grilled chicken RM32.80 (one of the best grilled chicken i have ever had!)

Even though prices are a little on the high side, I will definitely go back for another round of meal as they are really good and worth!

Where at?
4, King Street, Georgetown, 10200 Penang.

Tel no: 04-2645088 (Opens Tuesday - Sunday)

Mommy Wang @ Gurney Plaza, Penang

Looking for a quick and affordable meal at Gurney Plaza? Look no more, go to Mommy Wang, at 6th floor.

fried fish rice set RM5.90

fried chicken rice set RM5.90

Though food here is priced affordably, I would think twice visiting for the second time as the presentation and the taste of the food is rather bland.

China House Penang

Fancy visiting pre-war houses? At China House, you not only can visit and see for yourself the original structure of a pre-war house, but also dine in and enjoy its sweet and savoury dishes.

every table is provided with some crayons and patrons are welcome to doodle on the table laid with "mahjong paper" 

Italian cream cake -RM12 (highly recommended!)

vegetarian spaghetti - RM22

mushroom and chicken pie - RM30 (alright)

spaghetti with chicken breast - RM29 (not recommended)

For first times, have your heavy meals outside and have your desserts at China House. Their cakes are really good. Made fresh everyday and is really exquisite. As for their savoury dishes, i would say they're below par a little. Or perhaps, we didn't make the right order that night.
By the way, they have different menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
As they occupy the whole stretch of house from Beach Street all the way to Victoria Street, they have another portion of the restaurant which serves as a lounge and has band playing at night.
