Returning back to continenal eating, here is a restaurant high on my list to visit during our recent weekend trip to Edersee. I know hubby would be very please with its maritime theme decor with most seats taking in a gorgeous, unblocked view of Edersee. Our dinner was a simple two course, nothing too fancy usually when eating out in Germany as portions are usually huge and filling that one can´t go more than two course anyway.
To start off ... I had a glass of rose, and he, a weissbier.
The kitchen is known for serving homebread breads, dips and the likes. The bread tasted fresh, healthy and light. Perfect.
Something from the seasonal menu and its pumpkin. Light, creamy with a hint of spice. I enjoy the texture very much too, being not too chunky or too watery.
His tomato soup however looked like a can of tomato puree. I was worried for him, but alas, he said it tasted homemade and decent.
My schnitzel man and his beloved portion of pommes aka fries. He is a happy camper with just the two but the chef like any good chef, wanted to keep the meal balance by introducing a decent portion of green. Haha. Well .. its rude to not finish your plate hubby .. so eat up!
I went for a light Tomato and Rucola Flammkuchen. It was a Monday so its vegetarian day for me. The crust were amazingly light and crusty. One of those kind where it might just get blown away if you eat them outdoor!
All and all, decent food for the fair price in such hotel category.

I´ve had my fair share of miss vs hit when choosing a place to eat in a shopping mall especially a neighbourhood mall such as Ikano Power Centre. But like the locals, try something new if you spot one and O´Penang that is!
The menu as I recall is not too bad. From typical Penang offering such as Char Kuey Teow to Prawn Mee, it was pretty extensive if I remember correctly. But one offering stood out and that is the Penang White Curry Mee which took Malaysian´s instant noodle world by storm.
I was quite appalled by its pale appearance when it arrived. It was white! And not in a good way. A quick taste of the soup before mixing the killer chilli in proved to reconfirmed my initial reaction. It was light, too light infact as I can´t detect much coconut milk flavour. The chilli paste they provided elevated it a bit. The spiciness is there, but I can´t help feeling sorry for all the tofupok, seeham, boiled egg, noodles and the likes because it could have been more flavourful. Will I try them again? Perhaps not. But, I will give their other dishes a try when I fly back in few months time.
Cendol is good though ...
