Summer Garden Food Bistro, Vale of Tempe

I am going to end this post for year 2007. Year 2007 is a year where I started a blog of my own, a little corner where I post about food, about life.

And with these 2 corners of mine, I got to know many friends like WMW, Living in Food Have, Lots of Craving, Ipoh Mali Talak Sombong, M’sia Best, Sembang & Talk, Rainbown, 24hrMom, Celine, Precious Pea, Tummy Thoughts, Lingzie and many more. Though I’ve not seen them personally, but down deep my heart I treasure this virtual friendship, cuz, I know it’s hard to find good friends nowadays, friends that taught you where to find good food, how to cook good food, etc. [wink]
I don’t know how many of us in Penang aware of this place call Vale of Tempe. I was told this is a winding road that access to a reservoir and it’s famous of its mystery stories. Well, here to day we are not talking about any mystery stories but FOOD!!!!!
Found this place when I attended a farewell dinner few days ago, and immediately I like its cosy and romantic atmosphere. Now that in Penang is not easy to find a place where you can see lots of greens, but I can tell you that you can find it here in Summer Garden.
Last night, hubby and I hosted our friend whom came from KL to Penang for holiday together with their family. 6 adults plus 2 kids, we only had spent about RM160, of which we also have ordered 2 slices of cakes for dessert.

It’s hard to find good food, good price and good environment bistro, café or restaurant in Penang now, glad I found this and it made our honour guests happy too.

Well, the kids were too small, they didn’t really know how to enjoy food, thus we only order a basket of garlic bread for them. Cuz, earlier both of them had taken their milk and cereal, a basket of garlic bread with 6 pieces is just nice for them.

As for us, these are the food that we have ordered for ourselves and it was a pleasant evening that we had spent with our friends.
Char Grilled Lamb Cutlets. Lamb is my all time favourite regardless how they cook it, whether grill, pan fried, bake, stir fry or whatsoever. But this is slightly salty to my liking.
Hubby and our friend ordered BBQ Oriental Chicken. This is highly recommended from the waitress. The chicken is marinated with satay sauce and barbequed it. Apart from that, they also add on a small bowl of lemongrass sauce for you to dip to make the chicken refreshing and tastily.
As for the kids’ father, he ordered the Japanese Fried Udon for himself. Well, I didn’t get to try, not too sure was it nice to taste, so far, no complain, I guess must be another good one.
An old lady likes to have rice for dinner, thank God they do serve Japanese cuisine other than Western food. So, my girlfriend’s mother ordered a Teriyakki Chicken for herself. It was so good that the kids were enjoying sharing the chicken with their grandmother.
Apart from that, they ordered the Fish & Chips for their helper. It was a big portion, and am sure it’s something nice too, cuz, we noticed she didn’t finish the plate of fishes.

After all that, I chose a Banana cake for the kids and hubby and I shared the Kahlua Moist Cake for dessert.
The kids loved the Banana cake so much, cuz, it was so moisture, and it has chocolate chips in it.
We both were enjoying the Kahlua Moist Cake, the cake was so moisture that I don’t even bother about the ice cream that accomplish with the cake. [smile] So, you can imagine how good it is.

It was good dinner for us last night, not to say about the good companion.

And, in deed was a good dinner before we end year 2007 don’t we? I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year May God Bless You All With Good Health!
