Fusion Of Thai & Nyonya At Malabar Restaurant (Invited Food Session) – Last month, I was invited to join a bunch of Penang food hungry bloggers to check out this new restaurant in George Town – Malabar (Dine & Chill) Restaurant.
Malabar Restaurant is located at the corner of Kampong Malabar, the junction of Cintra Street & Kampong Malabar. They serves Thai & Nyonya cuisine there, so don’t be surprise when Thai food has a sense of Nyonya, and Nyonya has a sense of Thai. It’s not authentically Thai & Nyonya, but the food special, fusionised, and good, affordable too.
Besides serving food, they have rooms for tourist which serve as a lodging motel with affordable price. The trend of restaurant + room is getting popular in George Town, especially in colonial-style shop houses.
On that day, we were served more than 10 dishes of their specialty food. Hungry me was so busying filling up my stomach and also taking photograph of the food. Let’s get into the photos and food below.
Stir Fried Thai Style Mayonnaise Prawns with Broccoli – RM22. Not-so-Thai-style after all because of the mayonnaise sauce. It’s more localized type of prawn but overall the taste is OK-good. Kids will like it.
Thai Style Beef Koay Teow – RM9.50. This is something different, the beef was good and tender and the beef balls were yummy. Though, the soup was a little bit salty, drink more water after eating this.
Desserts of the Day – Steamed Pumpkin with Coconut Milk Custard – RM3.50. Finally, end our meal with the desserts. It’s sweet, it’s special. I’ve never try this before. It’s somehow blend the moist with sweetness, revealing an average taste, not too strong, not too light.
