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.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
