.159-Khoo Kongsi dinner at Copthorne Orchid Hotel Penang.

The day after the previous post's Khoo Kongsi dinner was another Khoo Kongsi dinner, this time for a different branch of the Khoo Kongsi. This time the dinner was held at the Penang Ballroom of the Copthorne Orchid Hotel in Tanjung Bungah, Penang. Again, it was a traditional 8-course Chinese dinner.

.158-Jade Palace Seafood Restaurant, Abu Siti Lane, Penang.

Back in December of last year, we were invited to a Khoo Kongsi dinner at the Jade Palace Seafood Restaurant located in some plaza along Abu Siti Lane in Penang. It was your usual Chinese course dinner with about 8 courses in total if I remember correctly.

.157-Weissbrau German Bistro & Bar, Straits Quay, Penang.

I went to try out this German restaurant located in the newly-opened Straits Quay at the beginning of this year. The food is pretty good, there is a good range of sausages to choose from, the menu is quite big too!

.155-Boost, Gurney Plaza, Penang.

I used to buy drinks from Boost when I was in London last year. Now, a branch has recently opened up in Gurney Plaza, and it's located in Basement 1 opposite the Big Apple Donut place. Price-wise, it's a little expensive, but once in awhile, it's ok.

.154-McDonald's McChicken Supreme.

After the Black Pepper Spicy Chicken McDeluxe promotion ended, McDonald's Malaysia came up with a new promotional burger. This time it's called McChicken Supreme. A new Shaker Fries flavour came out as well, and it's the BBQ McShaker Fries. This is probably my least favourite among all the promotional McDonald's burgers that came out so far this year.

The special thing about this burger is an extra smoked chicken slice and a slice of tomato.

.153-Blue Reef Fish & Chips, Permai 32, Penang.

I came to this restaurant with my family and granduncle for my birthday lunch. It was my first time there, and the food was pretty good. Serves Western food, like pastas, steaks, soups, fish, etc. My granduncle brought us here, and it's located at a sort of new commercial area after the Vale of Tempe road. The price is reasonable as well.

Check out their Facebook page; Blue Reef Fish & Chips.
