The outdoor seats.

The entrance.

The new menu.

The most value for money RM21.50 set meal in the entire Penang Island (some say Butterworth).

The best out of this is the “Our Signature” mushroom soup. It’s the no.1 mushroom soup in the world.

For me, any of the main course rocks.

You will pick a delicious one even with your eyes closed.

The fish and poultry sections are the ones with the most choices.

The meat and

chef specialties section are more expensive but worth every single cent.

Sat myself at the far corner.

Decorations.

Sat by myself for more than 45 minutes, waiting. 🙄

a mushroom soup. Winner = mushroom soup.

Zurene ordered lemon tea while

Complimentary bread and

butter with every set meal.

Everybody, say hello to Zurene Cheah of FunNstaff!

The fillet of fish almondine was delicious. Really.

However, the clear winner between the two was the seafood kebab. Rich in texture and filled with lots and lots of

fish meat,

squid,

raisins + capsicums,

broccoli and

prawns. Damn, it’s good!

06.40 pm – Headed over to the ice cream corner.

The ice cream freezer that
