.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!
