Tree Monkey, Batu Feringghi, Penang

Tree Monkey restaurant at Tropical Spice Garden stands at a perched hill overlooking the Andaman Sea. Beautiful panoramic scenery depiction as I peered through the trees and saw the luscious sunset and sea. There is a slope to walk up and for those wearing stilettos may probably have a problem here, especially on the way down. The view is astounding from every angle and i am awed with beautiful nature we have around us.

Here is where we dine, at the standalone table, appearing under the 'hut'. We have a cosy corner and granted a bell service that is we were given a small bell to ring if we need any help. Sweet!
It is known that they have a pork free menu. This is Thai Tapas where you get to choose a mixture of appetizers. We picked the 12 pieces for RM45 and our choices were Prawn Sabai, Mussel Salsa, Darling Crab, and Lemongrass Skewer. My top best taste would be the Mussel Salsa, the chili and lime taste was superb. The darling crab and lemongrass skewer was stuffed with seafood filling.
Whole Fish with Lime and Chili with mint leaves - RM38.80
Tumeric Rice - Fried Rice with Tumeric and Celery - RM4.80
Masaman Curry - RM 10.80 (Small)

The Masaman curry is another Thai dish that contains cashew nuts, chicken, star anise and potatoes. I didn't know what Star Anise was when I read it on the menu but now i know after I go-ogled it. Here is all about Star Anise and how its been used in dished like this.
