Christmas Dinner Semi Buffet | The View Hotel Equatorial Penang

Merry Christmas 2015! We had four days holiday on this year Christmas, a super happy holiday mood to welcome this year Christmas. We celebrated our Christmas at The View Restaurant, with their semi-buffet menu that can opt for either Turkey or Lamb for the main course. We get one Lamb and the other was rib eye steak that not in the menu. Before the soup was served, we started with the buffet. Not much choices but some of them taste really good. They have salad, fingers food, fruits, and more. Desserts were one of my main focus, their tiramisu is one of the best that I had ever ate. Desserts and fruits: Parsnip cream soup The main course tasted delicious especially the lamb, very soft and juicy. Lamb Rib eye steak Menu The semi buffet was RM158 per person, parking fees of RM6 can be claimed back from the total bill.

Sugar Paste Cup Cake

I wanted to bake mini cup cake since long time ago. At first, my plan is to bake him a car cake since he likes to play with cars. But from his  respond, he prefer airplane, and sometime motorbike. What he likes the most is Mickey Mouse! But he had Mickey cake on last year birthday, we "reject" his request and ask him choose for others. So, in my final decision, I decided to bake him cup cakes with all those things on top.

 

Indonesia Layer Cake with Prune Recipe

You will never understand my feeling, the feeling of excitement and satisfactory once I had successfully baked this cake. Indonesia layer cake is my favorite cake since I was young, same to my family. We used to order this cake from my father's friend, who married a Medan wife and make a very nice layer cake. Year after year, the price getting more and more expensive but we still buy from them especially during Chinese New Year. I made this few years ago and ended up with throw everything into dustbin due to the super "compress" and oily layer. Waste lot of eggs, ingredients, $$ and many hours of baking time. If you never hear of this cake, let me briefly explain about it. It is an Indonesia cake, also called kuih lapis legit,

 

Coffee Smith 咖啡史密斯 | Maritime Piazza, Karpal Singh Drive, Georgetown, Penang.

When there are more and more cafe open in Penang, I wish I could visit them one by one to enjoy a cup of coffee but I only managed to go one of them recently. It is Coffee Smith that located at Maritime Piazza, Karpal Singh Drive. We went there during Friday lunch, it was very crowded and we had to wait for a while to get our seat. The waiter gave us few copies of menu which I tought it was an advertisement booklet. I found it is quite special to printed menu in this way. After grance through the menu, I found that their foods are quite pricey. In fact most of the cafes are selling foods at higher price range nowadays. I ordered brunch set "Benny Duck Egg and English Muffin", it came with two duck eggs and ham on bread, two pieces of mini hamburger steak (very mini), fries and salad. This set includes one small cup of fruit juice and black coffee, RM24. The way they serve on "wooden plate" is special but I wonder how they clean the plate? Will it remained very clean after use for many times, will the stain leave behind the wooden material? They serve spaghetti too, Spring Vegetable Spaghetti at RM16. Hokkaido Scallops Cream Noodle at RM22. Portion was not big but taste creamy and delicious, you can find two scallops in the plate. Grilled Sandwich, Sicilion Chicken, RM14. I like the grill toast pattern. Caramel Macchiato, RM11. Nice latte art...

IMG_20130702_093122Coffee, has taken away my heart. Sometime it make me happy, sometime it make me high, but sometime it make my heart pumping at wrong frequency. I wish I can drink it everyday, with a set of toast spread with kaya, together with 2 half boil eggs without pepper and soy sauce, so I can have the pure egg taste, to welcome my day! Coffee, contains caffein that has stimulating effects, is not good to consume daily. Being addicted to coffee recently, I decided to continue addict to it at this moment. Last weekend, we visit a cafe located at Raja Uda, to try their Affogato. We arrived there in the morning at 11am but they have not starting their business yet. We come back later at 2pm, at this time the shop is empty, but after we put an order, more and more people coming in for their tea break.

Coffee formula

Besides coffee, they serve other beverage too. We ordered this Affogato, an espresson with vanilla ice cream. Espresso is very bitter but when you eat with ice cream, it is sooooooo gooooooooood...I love it! The snow man ice cream is too cute and innocent to kill by me, but he died meaningful as he changed Ms. Bitter Espresso life become sweet at the end.

Birdy style Affogato (RM8.90)

Macchiato (马车倒), what a pantang name for this coffee? A bitter coffee, which is espresso with milk form is good too, small in cup. Coffee art seems like telling you his bitter life as a teddy bear...

Macchiato (RM7)

They are famous with waffles too, we had this waffle with peanut butter and nuts as topping. To me, it is a bit too dry. I should try their waffle with ice-cream topping.
