The Ships, Batu Feringghi

I have been to many branches of The Ship at KL but not as grand as this one at Penang which you will be dining in a mock ship right by the Batu Feringghi beach.
The interior wise is like a dining hall in a ship deck. However, it is quite dark like any other The Ship restaurant to have my camera works well.
Their interesting way of ranking their waiter and waitress here. As if you are in a real ship. The ambiance is great and the idea is brilliant too but the food is extremely disappointing so I will not run detail as I used to in my any other post.
Mushroom Soup @RM7.90++ - I prefer it is called Campbell's soup.
Fresh Oyster @RM39.90++ - When I asked they said their fresh oyster will never keep more than 3 days. But when I eat, I taste it is more than 3 weeks. Maybe they did not calculate from the duration of the oyster leaving the sea and reach the restaurant.
Escargots @RM18.90++ - Big shells and almost nothing inside.
Rib Eye Steak @RM58.90++ - Best steak in town? This level of steak can be easily surpassed by any hawker stall in Penang.
Their quality is dropping every year and I do not see them improving. The only thing attracts the people is the grand ship design and nothing else. Not really worth it and I do not recommend it at all.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
