ENJOY alfresco dining in the idyllic beachside setting of The Bungalow at Lone Pine Hotel along Batu Ferringhi, Penang.
Overlooking lush gardens and the poolside, the all-day restaurant’s ala carte menu offers a tasty mix of local favourites and Western dishes.
Executive chef Aames Ang recommends starting off with the Nyonya Platter that has shrimp and chicken lor bak, otak-otak and pie tee.
For mains, he points to the Prawn Assam Pedas served with acar, rice and papadom, and the Braised Beef Short Ribs with crispy potatoes, Parisienne vegetables and cauliflower puree – as the highlights.
“Our Assam Pedas is thicker and richer in flavour. You’ll get sweet, salt, spice and sour all in one mouthful. The Short Ribs is gently braised for eight hours with herbs and spices, making it tender, flavourful and hearty,” he said.
Other notable options are Grilled Fish in Banana Leaf, Seafood Hor Fun, Curry Mee, Char Koay Teow, Lamb Curry Kapitan, Hainanese Chicken Chop, Lone Pine Fried Chicken with Gochujang spicy mayo and Roasted Duck with steamed buns.
To finish off, there is Banana Parfait with chocolate ice cream or Coconut Panna Cotta with salted coconut crumble and mixed berries compote.
“We infused these classics with tropical flavours to complement our beachside setting,” said the chef, who also suggested the signature Sago Gula Melaka as a sweet local alternative.
