Berlin's Bier Houz Bay Avenue

The word is out and it is official.

The Berlin's Bier Houz is now open at Bay Avenue. This is their third outlet, after Ipoh and Straits Quay, Penang. If you live on this side of the island and are craving for traditional German chow down like Pork Knuckle and German sausages then the wait is over.

We hit the restaurant in opening week and had our fair share of both. The pork knuckle has very crispy skin and tender meat on the inside, just the way we liked it.

Their signature dishes include German Pork Knuckle, German Suckling Pig, German Roast Pork, Duck Crepe, Sausage Platter and Meatballs.  

With October Fest just around the corner, the timing of the opening of the bistro couldn't be better.

Soup of the Day - Asparagus Soup (RM9.80)
German Pork Knuckle (1/2 portion RM25)

German Bratwurst (RM15.80)

Bay Avenue. G-1-1 Lorong Bayan Indah 1,

La Boheme Penang - Patisserie, Viennoiserie, Salon Du The

La Boheme is a quaint and unpretentious French bakery, café cum patisserie that recently opened its doors in the heart of Georgetown, joining a host of cafés and restaurants which has mushroomed in the World Heritage site in the recent year.

Located at the ground floor of a pre-war double storey house at Jalan Sri Bahari, the café may go unnoticed with the almost non-existent sign, if not for word of mouth.

The pattiserie maintained the originality of the pre-war building; adorned only with old and recycled furniture thus giving the eatery a certain character and mystery.

It’s specializes in French delicacies, most notably for its desserts and pastries. We were told that their best seller is Crème Brulee, the classic French dessert of custard topped with caramelized sugar. The chef whips up different decadent pastries to his fancy from time to time like the Forêt Noire (Black Forest), Bavaroise Caramel, Tarte au Fruits, Pain au Chocolat, Pain au Raisin to name a few.

They also have simple menu for soup, salad, quiche and pizza.

The creme brulee was quite unforgettable; the charred and slightly bitter caramelized sugar was a great contrast to the creamy custard. The French puff pastries like the Pain au Raisin are not to be missed as well.

Il Bacaro Venetian Restaurant at Campbell House

The Il Bacaro restaurant is the in-house Italian Restaurant of the Campbell House boutique residence. It prides itself as being an authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of Georgetown Penang, a UNESCO heritage site.

We read CK Lam's review about Il Bacaro and quickly made our way to the restaurant to check out the latest addition to the mushrooming dining scene in good old Georgetown.

We were received by Chef cum General Manager Roberto Dreon and were seated at a table by the french window overlooking Chulia Street. The warm and cozy restaurant on the ground floor of Campbell House was enjoying brisk business.

Lamb Ravioli with Pumpkin Puree and Red Wine Juice (RM30)
 The hand made ravioli is filled with braised lamb and served with sweet pumpkin puree and red wine sauce. We loved the fine ravioli texture and the tender lamb meat.

Basil Pesto, Cherry Tomatoes and Mozarella Pizza (RM25)

We loved the simple thin crust pizza with basil pesto and a generous topping of mozarella cheese.
