On a busy Friday, with the busy traffic, a friend introduced Foodie to a quiet and peaceful place to have lunch, away from the hustle and bustle but right in the heart of town.
Never knew that this unique place existed but was told that it has been around for some time now.
Just in case some of you Foodie fans have not been here, this one is for you.
If you are around town and want to give yourself a long lunch treat but don't know where to go, here is the place to go ...
Located on the 1st floor of Penang Plaza, the cafe is actually inside a boutique.
So while waiting for your food to come, you can take a stroll.
Served by the owner, Lynn herself, you can savor the set lunch.
Few choices to pick, makes life easier for everyone.
Nice soup and nice mains.
Mains on that day was beef stew with mash potatoes and oxtail set which comes with rice and some nice homemade vegetables.
There was also a healthy choice of grilled salmon, but we decided to indulge on the meats.
When the time came for dessert, we were absolutely full to the brim but being gluttons we carried on and did not regret.
Cheese cake came as a small piece, just nice as we were so full already ... and it was very yummy and went very well with the coffee.
was very impressed for a small cafe like this one, the milk that came with the coffee was warm ...
So, what was suppose to be a quick simple lunch, turned out to be a long and lavish lunch and good catching up ... not to mention good value for money...
So, if you have worked hard for the week and feel like pampering yourself, get 1 or 2 close friends and have a chill time at Lynn's ...
The place is pleasant and quiet :-)
Have a good weekend ahead ... remember not to work too hard and treat your stomach well :-)
Opening Hours : 10am - 7pm
Closed on Sundays

While we are still in the school holidays and festive mood, Foodie has decided to keep this month for 'good food' reviews and take a break from the Street Food ...
Have you ever craved for raw oysters but do not feel like buffet ?
This will be the place to go for you when you are in that kind of mood :-)
Cozily located at the corner of Lembah Permai 3, the ambience is nice for a semi formal but relaxing dinner.
Best part is you can
Starting off with a crisp Caeser salad, followed by this 'to die for' oyster shots.
No alcohol in it, but very nice concoction of soy sauce, caviar and a touch of secret I guess...
you have just got to taste it
according to lady boss, oysters are imported from Japan, so limited stock available each day ...
This chicken looks pretty ordinary but the lemon grass sauce that comes with it is very unique ... similar to the lemongrass cake as well for dessert.
Steaks are rather thin cut, but the good thing about this place is they take your orders seriously so if you ordered medium rare, it will come medium rare, unlike most steak places in Penang.
This is the braised lamb ... highly recommended by Foodie
try this one
don't forget to bring along a nice bottle of red wine to go with it
... aah ... and start off first with some sparkling wine to go with the yummy oysters
continue on with a wide selection of freshly home made cakes to go with coffee or tea
that brings us to total satisfaction
sit down, relax and have small chat with friends and relatives
Here are the operating hours
They are closed on Tuesdays ...
also a different selection for those who do not want to have Western food

August feels like a whole month of holidays, especially this week.
I suppose many will be traveling so just a little post for those who may be transiting at Subang airport ...
This nicely done up cafe is really cozy, with wifi, good food, nice coffee and friendly staff ...
Try the set menu which cups with a cup of soup, main course - choose pizza or pasta and coffee of various choices to your liking ...
The smoked duck pizza was really nice.
Looks really presentable but a little too sweet.
Nice ambience ...
Staff may not be very familiar with the menu so you will just have to make do with the photos.
You may get more info if you could speak in Malay, sorry foreign tourists...
Not sure why they don't hire English speaking staff here.
Friendly and helpful but disadvantaged for not being able to communicate in English.
Anyway ... Happy Traveling, Happy Holidays and Travel Safe :-)
