Little Nyonya Cuisine @Gurney Plaza

Once again being a free tour guide for a group of people from Yunnan, China to Penang for some nice local delicacies. However, they were complaining about our food is not spicy enough. So since they would like spicy food, the only place I can think of in Penang is The Little Nyonya Cuisine which located at the lower ground of Gurney Plaza. 
Tomyam Seafood @RM18.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Spiciness Level: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The seafood contains fish, squid and prawns only which is not bad at all. I would consider their seafood is fresh.The best part is the tomyam soup which is very spicy enough to numb your whole tongue and jaw.

Nyonya Asam Pedas Ikan Pari @RM18.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Spiciness Level: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The stingray is soft and delicious but the only problem was the moment the gravy touched my tongue, I already can taste the crazy spiciness in it which is far greater than the tomyam soup. Right after that I have watery eyes and running nose. As for the Yunnan group, they said:" This is what they have been expecting!" Oh my god! I think they are really crazy!

Sambal Kang Kong @RM10.50++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Spiciness Level: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - This is the spiciness limit that I can accept. Slightly salty but it is acceptable for me.

Mua Yu Chicken @RM15.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Spiciness Level: 0/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - This is not spicy and it is one of my favourite way cooking, which is using oyster sauce. It makes the chicken more fragrance.

Pandan Chicken @RM15.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Spiciness Level: 0/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Another not spicy food to suit myself. The chicken is full of pandan fragrance taste and it is really delicious. Never regret to order this. 

Mutton Satay @RM12.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Spiciness Level 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The grilled this mutton skewer very very well. I am very impressed that I do not have to find a satay hawker stall for a delicious satay. The most important thing is the satay sauce which is rich with peanut fragrance and it is not too spicy for a person like me to enjoy.

Overall, I am glad to find this restaurant to impress my Yunnan group who is very demanding to have their food to be extremely spicy.

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.
