After a long week stress, best to distress yourself by sitting at the sea side enjoying the breeze and some quality food.

Distress doesn’t mean having a glass of wine or other liquor but a class of Ice Long Black Coffee or a Chilled Mango Juice is another way of enjoying your life. Of course, having your loved one with you is another bonus.

Unwind yourself in this place with the tune of sea wave and sea breeze could make one self enjoy the fullest.

Beach Blanket Babylon moved out from The Garage that is along Upper Penang Road back to their own 32 Mansion about a year ago. They are part of the 32 Mansion management which is YKH Group the premier chain of award winning restaurant, but Beach Blanket Babylon is offering casual finger food for those that enjoy quiet and tranquilizing moment on their own. Talking about Mr Yeoh Kah Hock, if I remember clearly his 1st opening was Boom Boom Babylon a discotheque cum night club near China Street Ghaut (where it’s near the old building of Ban Hin Lee bank), his night club that has Las Vegas type of cabaret show, and attracted lots of sophisticated adults to his outlet . His 2nd opening in terms of night club was in former Gala Theater that is located Anson Road. Anyway, probably due to the 90s economy slumps, both outlet had closed down. And what we have right now are exclusive restaurants that serving good quality food from his chain of restaurants.

Let’s not divert the food that we are going to share here. What’s the specialties in Beach Blanket Babylon are Laksa Lemak, Vietnamese Pho (Beef Koay Teow Soup), and Mee Mamak (RM12-00 respectively). Since we both didn’t really like lemak food nor beef, hence we opted for Mee Mamak. One may find it expensive, but once in awhile do indulge yourself with good food, why not right?? Seriously, the Mee Mamak here isn’t that bad, if could add more spicy flavour that would be perfect.

In fact, I would strongly recommend their other specialty is their Garlic Bread (2 pcs RM2-50). I couldn’t find any other places that could have such a toast to prefect Garlic Bread. They are not using any other normal loaf of bread but Oat Meal Bread.

For any drinker, whether you’re here for wine, or beer or hard liquor. At times, you will tend to have some finger food. Though we didn’t have one, having this prawn fritter (RM12-00) is basically to satisfy our greedy hunger.

For once, nobody is watching the calories nor the fat, just wallop what we want. Dessert Crepe Banana Kahlua with Vanila Ice Cream (RM12-00) that ends the relaxation lunch that we have.

Wow, lovely! I always did think it was a bit wasted when they moved to the Garage - just didn't seem like the right location for the concept. Must visit next!
