BLUE REEF is the place......!

Blue Reef is a restaurant we have walked by and drove past many times but have never visited. All these while we thought it was just a Fish n Chips shop just like any other found in town. Boy, was we surprised when we visited? The place was near full as we can see when we stepped inside. Brightly lit, very cozy, quite spacious and the staff.....they are friendly.
I had Blue Reef's trademark dish.....The Fish n Chips done in beer batter. Notice how it is served? It comes with a green salad! It isn't just this but the fish itself. The batter is light and what I noticed when I took a bite is this. You don't bite into batter and then air but light crispy batter then fish. The fish is chunky and not tiny sized. I must say Blue Reef serves sizeable portions of food for the price paid. Even malt vinegar is supplied together with Heinz brand tomato and chili sauce. Now is this value for money or what?
This is the interesting and different part of Blue Reef. They serve other dishes besides Fish N Chips. A fish shop with a difference, no? Hmmm......had I known I wouldn't have taken this long to visit. Hubby had the Lamb Cutlet and he couldn't talk to me. He was too busy savoring every mouthful of the lamb plus the wonderful mash potato, etc. All he could muttered was ooh the lamb is very well marinated and tender. There is something very different about the mash potato here. Check this out.

We were served Crème brûlée after the meal. Courtesy of Blue Reef's owners Chris and Swen.

You will find drawings of patrons' children pasted on the wall. I find this really amusing, very interesting and a great idea. Something that I've not come across so far.
Now how did we find the food and service here?
This drawing here sums it all and you bet we'll be back for their other items on the menu.

Trot to the place which is run by Chris and Swen a young affable couple. BLUE REEF is located at Permai 32. Tanjung Bungah. Penang. Tel: 04-8999128. (Closed on Mondays) Have a Great Time and enjoy. :o)
