Savoring The Best All Over Town…

Archive for the ‘review’ Category

The Sigi’s Bar & Grill on the Beach @ Golden Sands Resort, Penang, has started a new menu to tickle the taste buds of diners. Beginning April 2019, the restaurant will launch its new a la carte menu, featuring its own style of casual Italian dining experience by the beach. Diners will get to enjoy an Italian gastronomic tour while taking in the sea breeze on this popular stretch of the Batu Feringgi. The concept behind the new menu showcases traditional farm-to-table Italian dishes, which recreates the fresh-source-to-dining-table approach to cuisine, and it’s a great way to create great dining experiences that embraces family gatherings and encourages the act of sharing dishes around the table with friends and family. For reservations, please call +604-886 1852 or +604-8811 911.

From classic to contemporary dishes, guests can take a bite of Italy how they want it. Starters feature a Traditional Bruschetta, Marinated Mozzas, Calamari Fritti and Antipasti for two. Health-conscious diners can go for the fresh greens. For flexibility, guests may choose to customize their Insalata or Caesar Salad with delectable choices, such as grilled prawns and smoked salmon. Signature soups include Sigi’s Minestrone, Wild, Wild Mushroom and Tomay-to, Tomah-to.

The highlight of the new menu is the Griglia (grill). Diners are given a multitude of scrumptious options for grilled Surf and Turf, such as king tiger prawns, salmon, beef ribeye and lamb rack, to be paired with their choice of homemade sauces, such as Mama’s Secret Chunky Tomato Basil, greens and sides like Polenta Chips and Roasted Potatoes with Italian Herbs.

Casual Italian cuisine would not be complete without pizza and pasta on the menu. Thin-crust Pizza Haven offers crispy crusts with hearty toppings, such as Lady Valtellina, The Godfather, Margherita Baby, and more. Pasta flavors range from Squid Ink Pasta and Spinach Ricotta Ravioli to meat-based options. Classic selections of the mains include Petto di Polio ala Milanese, a beautifully pan-fried chicken breast with crisp fries, fresh garden salad and Cacciucco, a heart-warming seafood stew.

Those seeking sweet endings can look no further than the ‘There is always room for dessert’ selections. An assortment of desserts ranging from sorbets to gelatos, Sigi’s Panna Cotta and the new Not Your Regular Tiramisu featuring a flaky crust and homemade golden fingers is available.

For drinks, guests can select from alcoholic and non-alcoholic quenchers. Italian beverages available include Aperol Spritz, Limoncello Margarita and Bellini. The beverage selection includes Zonin Prosecco DOC, an Italian sparkling wine perfectly paired with Grilled Salmon from the Griglia and an Americano to match a Chocolate Lava Gateau to end the meal on a sweet note. Non-alcoholic options include freshly squeezed juices, tea and coffee.

Sigi’s Bar & Grill is located on the beachfront of Batu Feringgi, facing the Straits of Malacca. It has four dining sections with an ambience for casual dining: an air-conditioned section, a private dining room, a patio section with a view of the garden and the beach, and a semi-open upper deck that can seat 20 persons. The restaurant is open daily from 11.00am to 10.00pm daily. Every Sunday, Sigi’s will feature its popular barbecue complete with grilled cuts, seafood and a whole lamb in the open fire pit by the beach.

The restaurant is just located within the premises of Golden Sands Resort. Drive all the way up towards Batu Ferringhi. When you see the Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa on your right, slow down and watch out for the Golden Sands Resort entrance which is right after the Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa.

The Eastern & Oriental Hotel (E&O Hotel) started in the late 1800s when the renowned Armenian Sarkies brothers, Martin and Tigran, settled down in Penang and established the Eastern Hotel in 1884. With its success, they opened another hotel in 1885, the Oriental, on an adjacent piece of land facing the sea. Both combined, these two hotels became the largest hotel in Penang. In 1891, another Sarkies brother, Arshak, joined the business and a large ballroom in 1903. Thus, the E&O became the center of the social life and gaiety of Penang and its surroundings. In 1922, Arshak secured a large plot of land for the hotel which extended its already impressive sea frontage. The land now housed the magnificent Victory Annexe with more rooms, making the property larger with 842-foot seafront, the longest of any hotel in the world.

Today, E&O Hotel still treasures its heritage by retaining its charm and weathered the passage of time with character and grace. Hence, they do have a posh yet affordable English Afternoon Tea daily at RM71.65nett per pax (RM76 nett per pax from 1 May 2019 onward) from 3.00pm until 5.00pm. You will get the experience of having tea time snacks with nice crockery tea set and silverware just like how it was during the colonial days, while overseeing the best view of the Straits of Malacca from its Planters Lounge, Level 6, Victory Annexe building.

For each English Afternoon Tea set, you would have the option to choose the tea of your choice from 16 types of tea, namely Assam Mokalbarie, Irish Whiskey Cream, Earl Grey, Jasmine Gold, Fancy Sencha, Vanilla Roibosh, Mint & Fresh, Raspberry Royal, English Breakfast, Darjeeling Jungpana, Tarry Lapsang, Greenleaf, Morgentau, Pure Chamomile, Verbena and Soft Peach. There will be sugar cubes and fresh milk to tweak your tea to your liking.

As for the finger food, you get to savor some of the best scones in this region, namely the Plain Scone and Raisin Scone, served with their homemade strawberry jam and pineapple jam plus their specially inhouse made clotted cream. Others delicious items on your palate would include Finger Sandwiches (Smoked Salmon Tartare Sandwich, Crab Meat Slaw Sandwich, Corn Fed Chicken Ragout and Truffle Scented Egg, Marinated Tuna Flakes Sandwich, Organic Spinach Quiche and Cucumber, Dill and Cream Cheese Sandwich) and Cake & Tea Pastries (Opera, Fruit Cake, Red Velvet, Fruit Tartlet and Millefeuille)
