Chinese New Year 2010, Part 2

Posted on Posted in Author, Food, Photography, Travel

At night, we had western food! Which is ALSO not normal to eat in Penang, for me. We went to Sigi’s Bar and Grill on The Beach at Golden Sands Resort. Currently, it’s only open to in house guests, and the launch is on the 18th of February! This particular restaurant is quite big, it has an outdoor and indoor dining areas. Besides that, they have a cool bar that is lit up with blue lights at night! Actually, the whole restaurant is based on blue colour. The place is a little dark which sort of gives this mysterious and romantic ambiance. On the opposite end of the entrance leads you outside to the beach which you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets and enjoy the sea breeze. Outside the entrance has a trail with herbs and flowers at the sides. Overall, this place is such an adventure.

Blue lights, turquoise chairs and tables and lovely ‘lighted paintings’ on the wall.

The long ‘river’ in the middle of the restaurants is still due to constructions though.

The actual place is much darker.. I brighten it up so you could see whats there.

The outdoor dining area. So spacious!

Eastern Sunrise Mocktail
Fresh Guava, Pineapple, Lime, Banana, Mango and Grenadine Syrup
My favourite. It’s slightly sour because of the grenadine. But surprisingly, I didn’t taste any pineapple and banana..

P1080935

Caesar Salad (RM28)
Crispy Romaine Lettuce, toasted croutons, beef bacon, anchovies, shaved parmesan, and soft poached egg with caesar dressing.
Lovely poached egg, oooh! The parmesan that melts in your mouth and beef bacons. Am I making you drool?

Red Chilli, Coriander, Onion Jam and Nahm jim

Seared Scallops (RM30)
Scallops with green olive tapenade, chive creme, and potato galette
The. Scallops. Are. So. Fresh. And. So. Juicy.. I only had half.. and I want more! It’s just so lovely!

Prawns (RM28)
Marinated in Morrocan Spices, dipping sauce
Eat it without shelling the prawns! It taste so beautiful.. If you shell them, you don’t get to taste the spices anymore. Trust me on this!

Pan-fried Cod (RM65)
With crushed new potatoes, pistachio aioli, and fennel and caper salad
I always loved cod fish.. Juicy fresh cod fish.. Yum. 😀

Braised Oxtail Fettuccine, Parmesan, Broccoli and Basil (RM34 for individual, RM112 for family)
For me, I’d preffer my spaghetti softer.. The oxtail is full of fats. Eek! Not my kind of meal.

P1080989

Beef Sirloin (RM70)
Char-grilled Australian black angus sirloin steak with hand-cut chips. cafe de paris butter and salad
Don’t order a well done steak.. Order medium or rare. It really makes a difference. Juicer and more tender. Every mouth made me want another piece. It’s that good. RM70 worth of paradise.

Fried Dried Flat Rice Noodle (RM31)
They have a few local items as well like this one! Of course, they are fine dining local food! 😀

Fungi (RM27 for 12″)
Mushrooms, anchovies, olives, and dried oregano
Mushrooms are nice. 😀 Do you like mushrooms? I love mushrooms.. This pizza is just awesome!

Souvlaki (RM29 for 12″)
Shredded lamb, onion, sweet chilli sauce, tomato tabouleh and garlic sauce
The weird part is that they added chilli sauce to make it a little Arabian-ish. Not working for me.. It reminds me of the Ramli burgers..

The Bombe (RM23)
Mango sorbet, white chocolate parfait, Italian meringue, and pine nuts
It seemed to be a weird combination, but a good one.

P1090023

Chocolate Tarte (RM25)
Like chewing gum tart! Okay, not literally, but its quite chewy, but not too much that makes you tired of eating it. To balance it off, they added a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

P1090021

Meet the chef himself, John Brock.

P1090013

Family time! 😀 My Aunt, Uncle and mum.

P1090035

Say hello to baby Neville! He’s about 8 months old now.

Saturday

Usually we would visit and pray to my grandpa in the morning before lunch.. This time we went in the afternoon.

P1090036

The sun rays here are so.. SO bright!

P1090038

Night falls and we had our reunion dinner. We had steamboat as usual! No pictures, I wanted to enjoy the food…. 😀 But I did take pretty pictures of the fireworks we played. We also accidentally lit up an unknown firework and we didn’t stand far away enough nor did we covered our ears.. The cylinder-shaped firework bombed with such a loud sound, our ears were still ringing 2 hours later. ):
