Test Kitchen Penang

A couple of weeks ago, we were looking for a place to celebrate a friend's birthday, so one of our friends suggested we try this place. It only opens on Friday and Saturday evenings, with only one table per night which can cater up to 12 people. We had 8 people, so it was an indeed private dining experience for just us.

The restaurant (can I call it a restaurant?) is located on Noordin Street, in Georgetown. From the outside, this is what it looks like.

There is only one fixed menu per night, and the restaurant had sent us the menu ahead of our dinner.

When we arrived, the menu looked like this. I think they were inspired by the restaurant Gaggan in Bangkok, which was named the No. 1 restaurant in Asia's 50 Best Restaurants for 4 consecutive years. 

So while waiting for the food to come, we took photos (what else lol). There is no specific dress code for this place, so anything is fine.

This was our menu for the night, priced at RM139 nett per person (alcoholic beverages not included). Corkage is priced at RM30 per bottle, for those who intend to bring their own.

Hokkaido scallops

Beet Tartare

Chicken Wings

Couscous Ulam

 Pan Fried Grouper

Ubi Ice Cream

To finish off, we had coffee or tea and homemade Turkish delight - my favourite!

All in all, it was an interesting experience. The service was excellent and food good, although not excellent. However, it's still worth a try. Reservations are a must, either on their Facebook page or via WhatsApp. The restaurant details are below:
