Yet another.....@ The Sun, Penang

Another new place to eat....@ the Sun. That's the name of this new restaurant. As you step out of your car you see the statue of Sun Yat Sen right in front of the mansion.

The restaurant is by the side and you get this nice warm welcome feeling as you take a walk into the restaurant.

Inside, the restaurant is very tastefully done up. Chairs covered up in shades of green and beige. The drapes hanging down from the ceiling gives the whole place a cozy feeling. I'm talking about the Spring Chamber Restaurant. There are many sections inside this particular place.

Our welcome drink as we sat waiting for our food. It is a sweet punch.

For starters, you can chose between the soup of the day or an appetizer. Hubby had the appetizer but I went for the soup. The soup of the day was cream of mushroom soup. Oh, you will never get enough of the soup. It is rich, creamy and full of mushrooms. Very well prepared kind of soup. The tempura fried prawns appetizer was just as good. A reason why no picture was taken. Hubby finished them even before my camera was ready.

Both hubby and me decided to have the Set Dinner and we chose the Grilled Lamb Loin in black pepper served with mashed potato. I don't particularly like my potato mashed so I asked for it to be replaced with potato wedges. It was allowed. For the price of rm38 nett, I have to agree that the portion served was sizeable. The taste of the lamb, good and very well marinated. It was well grilled and even the fats smelled good. The lamb is tender and juicy despite it being well-done.Chocolate brownies cake was on the menu for dessert. Since hubby loved the Black Forest cake (he had been here before), the waiter obliged by serving him the Black Forest cake. I decided to go for the brownies for variety. Both were good but the Black Forest was.....simply awesome. One small slice wasn't enough and we had an extra order of the Black Forest. (picture shows our extra order of the cake). The one thing I have to say of the cake is, at rm13.20 per slice (that size) I think it is a tad expensive. Well, if you have it all in the set then it is worth the price you pay. The whole Set Dinner that is.

Coffee was served with the dessert. Now this is what I call good coffee. Thick and aromatic unlike some restaurants which serve coffee that comes in a very diluted form.
Picture here shows the Summer Court and it is an Outdoor cafe. There is an Autumn Lounge here too.

These hang on the doors of the toilets. What great ideas!
