THE Bungalow of Lone Pine Hotel celebrates Penang’s culinary heritage with its special Nyonya Hidang Set Dinner every Thursday.
Served from 7pm to 10.30pm, it is priced at RM37.30 per person and comes with seven classic dishes.
An appetiser platter offers light bites like Pie Tee, Chicken Lobak and Century Eggs, to get you going. Then it is time for rice and dishes.
They include Kiam Chai Ark, a salty and sour braised duck with pickled vegetable soup traditionally served during festive occasions.
Dig into the Otak Otak, a spiced fish and egg custard, or add on Sambal Udang Kering which are sauteed dried shrimps with lemongrass and dried chilli paste.
Take the heat up a notch with the Sambal Petai with Squid.
Get your dose of greens along with assorted mushrooms and black fungus in the stir-fried Loh Han Vegetables.
