Azuma Japanese Restaurant @ Queensbay Mall, Penang

On Christmas Eve me and my brother went to Azuma Japanese Restaurant at Queensbay Mall for dinner. I specifically chose Queensbay because it was one of the places I used to hang out a lot when I was still working in Penang, I wanted to see how much changes had taken place since then.
Well it seemed like quite a number of restaurants and cafes had established themselves in the mall, which is a good thing because I seriously felt that Queensbay lacked choices when it came to food. But I still don’t understand why they wouldn’t do anything about the open air car – the road condition is still bad!

sashimi

While I am not entirely happy being having to work in Singapore because of the deterioration of quality of life, earning Singapore dollar means I get to spend more comfortably when I return to Malaysia. My brother is not much of a sashimi fan so I only ordered for myself – Kiku Sashimi @ RM35 that consisted of 8 pieces of assorted raw fish.
The sashimi was fresh and quite thick sliced, obviously something I am very happy about. I enjoyed the salmon sashimi the most and I think I am gonna order just that next time. Maguro is juicy but the texture is just not as great as salmon’s while I find Tako just too rubbery for my liking.

unagi

My brother had a piece of Unagi Kabayaki all to himself. RM22.

salmon-skin

There was a promotion for pan fried salmon so we had one of it as well.

Dragon-I Restaurant @ Queensbay Mall (Revisit)

This is one of days where I don’t have the mood to write much. Because the food is nothing spectacular, yet expensive. Even the photos I took are bad, touching up was a painful process. Not worth going anymore, that’s what I think of Dragon-I after my last visit to the Queensbay Mall‘s branch.

xiao long bao

So, let me start with the nicest among all. The Shanghainese Steamed Buns aka Xiu Long Bao. RM9 per basket of four. We had two baskets of this.

Dragon-I Restaurant @ Queensbay

I’ve been longing to try Dragon-I but have been put off by the expensive price of the food. It was not until I received my second Advertlets payout then only I decided to dine in [tag]Queensbay[/tag]‘s [tag]Dragon-I[/tag]. Seriously, Dragon-I has a very good marketing strategy. They put up a glass before the entrance at all restaurants where you can see the chefs prepare noodles and meat dumplings. It always draws passer-bys and I am always one of them. So, kinda happy that I get to fulfill my curiosity finally. And the meal can be considered free because of the extra money, lol.

Max Gourment Dim Sum Restaurant

Everytime I go to [tag]Queensbay[/tag], food is a problem. They are either fast food only or too expensive for a normal meal. Then there are those which are nice and reasonable but often too packed making the waiting time unbearable. Luckily Shanghai Ding Tai Feng and Max Gourmet Restaurant are available within walking distance from Queensbay. You should really try the restaurants along the road leading to Queensbay, they are pretty good for me so far. Parking is expensive as they are privatized but you can always park in Queensbay for RM1 per entry, ha!

duck drumstick noodle

Max Gourmet mainly focuses on dim sum and [tag]HK-style food[/tag]. My choice for the night was Roasted Duck Drumstick noodle which comes at a very reasonable price of RM5.50. Fuyoh, cheap and nice. What I love about roasted duck the most is the crispy skin! Recommended.
