Kim Gary @ Queensbay, Penang!

I hope I'm not too late.

Kim Gary just stumbled its feet in Queensbay, Penang! Woo hoo!!

*ahem* I'm not saying I'm a *die-hard* or *can't live without* fan of Kim Gary, but I think they are very much better than other food outlets that is available in Queensbay. They have much more options and of coz, much more affordable if you take their set meals!

This is one of them, fish-cutlet cheese bake rice, comes with a drink, dessert and soup! RM16.90.
I highly recommended the WHITE sauce (red sauce taste bad -_-) for the bake-rice flavour.
And I loveeeee their cream soup, with ham cutlets and small bits of veges in it.

And also their ying-yong (coffee + tea). mrgreen

They do serve extra seasoning if you fancy more cheesy-flavoured rice.
My favourite *squeals*!!!

and again.. up close and personal!
oh ya, and the dessert..I think they do change their dessert every now and then though..
Their seaweed flavoured fries are good too.
I think is about RM4.90 if I'm not mistaken.
up close........
Me and my good friend also tried this..
the newbie.. korean style mee...
not bad.. RM11.90 per set which comes with a small bowl of kim chi and a drink.

wah.. can't wait til my next trip there! But when I think of the queue during peak hour, damn frustrating la.. hehe

Also, if you are their member (RM20/per year), you'll get 10% off on weekdays and they also do give out free RM5 vouchers and 50% off your birthday voucher !! Damn "taattt" la...!

Xuan Xin Restaurant @ Gurney Plaza, Penang

Not sure if this is a little too late, as I went to try out their food last Nov'08. mrgreen

Restaurant : Xuan Xin Restaurant
Location: Gurney Plaza New Wing (a level above A&W)

The name is familiar right? It is the same owner as the steamboat buffet restaurant in Tanjung Bungah.

The high class menu ::
The snack which is served before our food.

The interior of Xuan Xin. So high-class looking right?

More tables.
Me and my friend didn't ordered much as we are low in cash. LOL. But still wanted to try them out since their steamboat @ Tanjung Bungah was pretty satisfying.

We both ordered the barley-wintermelon dessert (in Cantonese called "Fu Chuk Yee Mai").
Not bad. But it is a little too sweet though.
The Cantonese fried rice. We ordered this as the picture in the menu looks so decieving. mrgreen
Not bad. Not too oily. But the portion is quite small. Medium. mrgreen
The "Sang Mee", we called it crunchy mee.
This one needs more seasoning / salt. A little out of taste. But it taste nice. :) With fresh prawns and fish cutlets. Yumm..
Overall, the service was great, the environment was great, just that the price tag is a little expensive. I will still go for my Kim Gary restaurant if I had the choice to choose. mrgreen

Japin @ Queensbay, heart them!

I just love Japanese food. I'm not talking about sushi or fresh salmon, I'm referring more towards the ramens and teriyaki chicken at Japin @ Queensbay in Penang.

It is located at the same floor as the GSC cinema but opposite end of it. In between Hong Kong Videos and SenQ.

The usual stuff that is placed on each table.

They have changed their menu recently and it has a little price difference (about RM2)compared to the old menu.

And of coz, new menu has much more to offer and much more interesting stuff.

On the not so good news, they have discontinued their green tea and dessert that used to come with the set menu. sad

Green Tea (a-la-carte)

I am still so in love with their Extra-spicy Ramen! Mind you, it is really extraaaaaaa spicy as stated! *warning*

So yummy looking right? and it is really yummy!!!

The ramen is nice, not sticky but just nice enough with the soup!

My boy ordered teriyaki chicken set (RM19.80). Which is my favourite too. Not too sweet and just nice. And I love their potato salad (on the left, beside the salad). But the portion of the salad is just too small lah. geez. Their ala carte for potato is a whooping of RM4 for a scoop.
The set comes with 2 piece of watermelon, a bowl of miso soup, and some small kimchi as
And of coz, a meal wouldn't be complete without me camwhoring! LOL! twisted
