This is a follow up posting on what happened yesterday (my birthday). Hubby and I settled the kids and mom in-law once again, Michelle cried after knowing that we will not be bringing them along for the celebration, poor girl, anyway at last she gave her blessings and off we go. Hubby brought me to Burmah Square, we ventured around, the first stop was to an eating place called Jemput Tree, the interior (very Balinese)attracted us, we went in for a survey, quite nice place but all the private booth were occupied, thus we decided to skip it this time, maybe next time with the kids, we walked next door, a Japanese restaurant (a friend introduced us to this place), a nice garden welcomed us, we walked in and the owner (a Japanese retiree) welcomed us, guessed must be the boss. I didn't bring my digital camera but found this site that introduce this restaurant too, copy some pictures from the site (www.penangreview.net)
The garden entrance to Isabiri
The interior of the restaurant
I realized it's more than a restaurant, the deco actually describe the character of the owner, there are some interesting postings on the wall, a nice aquarium with corals and deep sea creatures, a lot of wood display, japanese jeweleries for sale (genetically modified miniature flowers were made into earrings, bracelets and pendants)...
Now come to the food, hubby ordered udon with vege tempura, I ordered grilled Salmon head with teriyaki sauce, was quite satisfied with mine though hubby said smell "fishy", we ended with green tea ice-cream for dessert. The bill cost us RM49.75. I manage to chat with the boss, a retiree who has been residing in Penang for the past 6 years, the restaurant is 4 years old and I think he is expanding the place to include a corner for sake/mini bar.
Next we ventured into Gurney drive and took a stroll before we headed home and called it a day. It was a wonderful day and thanks hubby for taking trouble to plan the event... oh yeah before I forgot, my princesses sang me a birthday song as usual.
