Bukit Genting Thai Restaurant

I've been to Bukit Genting restaurant a couple of times but this is the first time I bring along my DSRL. So, finally, I'm in the mood to blog about this restaurant :)

We were there about 1.5 hour before sunrise. Just nice for us to walk around and enjoy the food before getting our gears ready for sunset :)

The food we ordered:

The food there is quite reasonable. 9 of us, ordered tomyam seafood, thai-style-steam-fish, deep fried kangkung, green curry, belancan chicken, pandan chicken, claypot "tanghoon" prawn, "mengkam", a jar of ambra juice, a jar of herbal tea. Cost us only RM180. My Japanese colleagues especially love the green curry. They literally can have a bowl of white rice with ONLY green curry. (By the time all the local are full, only green curry left. My Japanese colleagues ordered a bowl of rice each and continue eating.....)
Well, Ching Ching and I were too excited. We started to walk around with our camera before all the food are served (just in case you didn't notice there's no "Mengkam" in my photos :) ).

Nice ambience



To be frank, I think the food served are not great (well, not bad either :p). You can easily get much tastier Thai food anywhere else in Penang. However, the scenary that this spot can offer is just great! Worth the long drive!
