My good buddy Jimmy, owner of Prestigious Wines, is in Penang to visit some of his regular clients and conduct some private wine tasting sessions.
And of course, every time Jimmy comes to town, he always brings me a few bottles of goodness so after dinner we stopped by That Little Wine Bar to sample the wine that Jimmy had brought for me to try.
That Little Wine Bar provided us with white and red glasses so we could get down to business.
As usual, Jimmy didn’t disappoint and I don’t think he’s ever brought me a bottle of wine that I didn’t enjoy.
It’s nice to have a mate who imports the BEST wine into Malaysia. Haha
Check out this very unique triangular-shaped bottle:
BTW, Jimmy is getting hitched to his lovely girlfriend Jem in October (10.10.10) so I wish them all the best (and for sure I will be at the wedding dinner because I know you will have some good wine there. Hehe)
A couple of weeks ago, I was trying to think of where to go for dinner and I decided to visit the poor and desolate Penang Times Square to see if there were any struggling businesses there that needed a bit of support.
Of course there were plenty of empty restaurants, but I was passed a flyer by a guy from a place called the JC Café and on it they advertised Portugese Egg Tarts and Steamed Milk.
Steamed milk is a Cantonese-style custard-like dessert that is very popular in Hong Kong and you can never find it in Penang, so I was curious to try it.
The place is hidden away in a corner on the 2nd floor so I have no idea how anyone would find the restaurant since no one goes to the mall at all.
Anyways, I ordered my food, and for my drink I ordered a Hong Kong-style iced tea.
Here is the iced tea (RM5.90) next to the steamed milk (RM3.90).
And so you have a good idea of how BIG an iced tea you get for RM5.90 and how MUCH steamed milk you get for RM3.90, here are both items next to my iPhone:
Is that the most expensive iced tea in Penang? (Don’t forget HALF of it was filled with ice)
I can put more tea in a fucking shot glass.
The food was crap too and absolutely NOT worth the price.
