Banana yoghurt drink. Yum Yum
Their ever popular peach and lemon tea. You will be sure that its full of flavor here!
Wild Mushroom Soup. Made with 2 different varieties of mushrooms and cooked from scratch, this mushroom soup is very flavorful and one will be able to get a good dose of mushrooms!

Bora Bora Papadum with Salsa Sauce. Now, you can probably get papadum at practically every nasi kandar stall but I can say that this is the only place in Penang with such a Salsa Sauce. Their sauce is made from their own secret recipe and its both refreshing, taste bud tantalizing and also gives you that oomph feeling! This is one snack plate that one must try here.

Spaghetti Fettucine with Chicken and Wild Mushroom Ragu. Now I'm a big fan of Fettucine as it reminds of of Pan Mee. Hahah. Well, I just like flat noodle in pasta form I guess. This fettucine is cooked in a flavorful mushroom ragu sauce that is both creamy and thick. This really absorbs well into the fettucine and gives each bite a good taste. The grilled chicken is also very well marinated and that is some tanginess to it from the herbs and spices that complements the fettucine very well. Can't go wrong with this one.
Vietnamese Noodle Soup with Beedf/Chicken and Prawns. Looking for a more Asian flavor, then you are in luck at this Vietnamese noodle soup will definitely get your taste buds pumping. Coming in a large bowl, you get 2 XL size prawns and either beef or chicken together in one! The soup has an eggy texture and you will be able to taste the seafood base used to make it. Yummy indeed.

Grilled white fish with citrus lemon butter sauce. Most restaurants nowadays skimp on their choice of fish and just pick Dory fish as its both cheap and comes in fillets. Here, they use white fish which is much thicker and juicier compared to Dory and they have created a fish dish which is worth your dollars. 2 large grilled fish slice, lots of potatoes and salads on the side make this a memorable dish. The lemon butter sauce also works well as a dressing for the salad with its tangy taste.

Stir fried beef or chicken served with rice, salad, papadum and egg! For rice lovers, this is a good choice to go for and the portion is surely enough for a food meal. You get a bit of everything here with the stir fried meat being a good complement to go with the rice. A plus is that the papadum also comes with their very good Salsa Sauce. Tips to you all who would try this, the Salsa Sauce goes very well with the fried egg too!

And last but not least, their dessert which consist of a scoop of ice cream with some dressing of the day. I guess this is a good way to cool down the stomach after a hearty meal!
