A Visit To Two Frenchies Bistro In Penang

FRENCHIES AS IT IS IN FRENCH?

Two Frenchies, it is called.. I googled for the meaning of Frenchie, a French person or a French Bulldog.  Googled deeper, this bistro is opened by two French expatriates in Penang and it has become a popular place to chill and relax in the evenings...

My friend made the reservation for four of us one evening at 7pm.  Being my first time there, I really did not know what to eat and I ended up ordering something which I find it amusing now when I look at the photos. 
Taken at dusk... Two Frenchies...
Starters... what shall I order... 
Seafood chowder... or something like that.... 
Comes with these condiments.... 
Blanquette de Saumon... 
Creamy salmon, market fish and vegetable stew served with rice pilaf... RM32.90
Croque Monsieur RM16.90
It is like French toast with turkey ham.. my version of description.. LOL.. 
Do not be deceived by this picture of the Confit de Canard...RM32.90
It might not look appetizing but this is the best order among the four of us.. 
The duck leg is cooked in its own fat and the base is made of mashed potatoes... 
I tried some and my decision is... 
 I would love to order this the next time.... 
And now presenting what I ordered for myself... LOL... 
Two Frenchies Signature Burger!  RM29.90
150g beef with melted cheese...
Crispy pork bacon among grilled onions and others.... 
Oh my goodness!  Did I really devour this burger??
I think I did minus the french fries, that is for sure!
Too much.... just too much... 
LOL...

  2. All looks tasty. Yum yum! I want to eat the duck dish but the creaminess of the potatoes may be too cloying.

  3. Food looks really delicious. Have you tried Having's in Ipoh? I think the chef is a Frenchman too.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
