Kith and Kin, Desiaran Vantage,Penang

I may have intended to go to a new restaurant but once I entered I felt I was going to a friend's big dining hall. I suppose I am : ). The first thing that caught my eyes was the portrait of this two cute little ones and then a summary of what Kith and Kin meant for them. If I may take another minute of your time to read what it means in Kith and Kin in Macmillan dictionary.
 The portrait of the two kids belong to the proprietors husband and wife Kevin and Celyn. The second thing I noticed is that the interior is spacious and wide, with a corner just for the kiddies to entertain themselves while parents enjoy their meals. Now, this is a plus point they have compared to other cafes.

 Another hall of fame in the house as seen in the picture below. The array of family photographs hung on the wall were exquisite and warm altogether.It's cool how they share their lives as part of their business. Thumbs up!

The kiddies play pen
For those who are health conscious - there is NO MSG served in the meals. 
The main meals can be converted into a set meal with additional RM6.90 and that includes ice lemon tea, soup and ice cream. If you would like to have coffee on top of that, then just add RM3.90.
The ice lemon tea does not include sugar therefore the little cup of sugar syrup is accompanied to suit your sweetness level. 

Aside from the main meal, some of us shared their signature salad. Indeed it's delectable. The orange makes it sweet coupled with some crunchy onions, capsicum,roasted almonds flakes etc.            

The Lamb Cutlet is the best so far on this visit. The tenderness of the meat with the mango and mint compote just does it all. The plate was cleaned out so I suppose you know what that means.

The Herb Lemon Butter Baramundi was pleasant with light buttery taste. The fish was fresh and fluff if I could put it in my layman term. There wasn't a strong herb flavor for those who likes it done this way.

   Stuffed Chicken is stuffed with mushroom and leek served with side salad and salted egg cream sauce. It sounds unique and it is surprisingly tasty. I would recommend to those who fancy salted egg to give this a try.

Grill Salsa Chicken as the name suggest is tomato based, It is served with mash of the day , sautéed vegetables and homemade salsa.

  Here was the last that came for a friend who came later, Grilled Salmon. Also served with mash of the day, sautéed vegetables and lemon honey mustard sauce. 

Last but not the least here is Frances with her pasta dish - Smoked Salmon Linguine.

  To end the night is the last thing on the set menu is the vanilla ice cream to sweeten our tooth.

With the lady boss, Celyn.
I'm interested to try their sloppy joe burger and their coffees. That will be my next at Kith and Kin restaurant.

Le Perigord, Pulau Tikus

Le Perigord first opened in January 2016, a casual dining place but with a feel of semi-fine to fine dining setting. High ceiling and exquisitely decorated with a tinge of colorful pictures. I came during lunch time and there was only set lunches available. Set lunch comes with soup, main course and a drink and it's reasonably priced.

It's a nice place for gathering and parties and the best part is you're able to bring your own wine without being charged corkage. As you can see bottles above the bar, there are empty bottles from customers after their dinner. 'Souvenirs' on the shelf. Cool.

Overall, I enjoyed the dishes. Aglio Olio would be according to personal preference in my opinion.  As there are different styles to cook it. I for one like the Italian style the most.
The chef does custom specialized orders for RM50 and above, no minimum pax required.

Mushroom Soup
Aglio Olio Seafood Spaghetti

Free range pork tonkatsu with mash potato & salad

There is an assortment of these mini cheesecakes with different flavours or topping. I like the concept of mini cakes, gives you a good taste and yet you don't overeat. Just savor the moment. :  )
