the mansion?

For the past 3 years, i've followed my bb back to penang whenever he's back from work.. to spend at least a week or more with his family (my in-laws).. most of the time we'd either eat at the hawker stalls (which what penang is famous for) or fast food.. so one day, i told my bb that i want to try fine dining in penang..

Before we headed back to KL, we stopped by at 'the Mansion'.. like it's name, it is really a mansion.. it is own by russ's ex-boss.. well like i said before, russ started out earning small bucks..

Anyway, here are some pictures :-














The food was good *thumbs up*

The interior is tastefully decorated

And the environment is superb.. the al fresco area is just by the sea! :D

For those who is planning to have a wedding reception or just a romantic dinner for 2, should check this place out ;)

ps: btw, according to my sister in-law, the lasagna is the best she has ever eaten

The portion seems small... haha. For me anyways. But good read, would definitely love to try it out.

My so far 'fine dining' experience is at El Cerdo's... haha. Shelled out major bucks just for that teensy stuff. If you can even consider that as fine dining. >.<

hows the prices like? moderately priced or higher side? planning to go to penang this wednesday coz wifey got some stuff to settle there

:: Nicole :: said...

as it's fine dining, i would say it's a lil pricey BUT worth it

Russ said...

Hehe, yeah I used to work for the owner.. but that was ages ago in 'Babylon Bistro' and '68 Kelawei'. He now runs 'Bagan' also, not a bad place to check out too..
