Farquhar Mansion no doubt one of the best fine dining restaurant located in Penang Island, offering top notch food quality and service. We were greeted at the door and escorted to our table by very nice wait staff. Sometime dining at fine dining restaurant tend to be very serious but i felt comfortable with waitress that serving us like a friends but in a professional way.
Start our first course with “Amuse Bouchee” which consist of 3 different items Potato with cream and black olive, Cod Ball with Bernaise and Potato Noodle and Salmon Skin with Ebiko and Micro Greens, bottom soil are made from crumbled charcoal with ginger.
Ciabatta and Whole Grain Bread with Homemade Butter, Classical Salted Butter, Sun Dried Tomato Butter and Herbs Butter. Even complimentary bread and butter are specially crafted by chef to provide the best, Sun Dried Tomato Butter and Herbs Butter taste are rich in flavor.
Hokkaido Scallop served with Ikura and Ebiko drizzle with truffle oil. We do expect to see a big round scallop served but chef creativity surprise us with thin slice of Hokkaido Scallop, it is perfectly platted with Ikura, Ebiko and Dehydrated Salmon Skin with Edible Gold Flake.
Foie Gras, Apple Chutney, Grape and Orange Sauce. The Foie Gras are perfectly grill to crispy skin with soft and creamy texture inside, it has very strong flavor. Acidity and sweet taste from apple chutney and orange sauce balanced the strong taste of Foie Gras.
Mushroom Soup with Asparagus drizzle with Truffles Oil. Assorted fresh wild mushroom sauteed to flavor served with mushroom soup and truffle oil, strong mushroom earthy taste and truffle oil fragrance.
Yuzu and Tomato Sorbet with Pomelo served before main dish to keep our tongue refreshing.
Black Angus Beef Tenderloin with Beef Cheek Tortellini, Potato Cream, Onion Jam, Baby Spinach and Beef Jus. My preference medium cook beef is nicely done to my expectation, pinky in the middle while outer layer perfectly seal, topping with special sauce that give it a hint of sweetness is just perfect.
Cheese Platter, Chive and Onion Cheese with Breeze Cheese served with Strawberry, Grape and Assorted Dried Fruits. Chive and Onion Cheese is something new to my palate and it definitely a wow flavor to my tongue, it has pretty strong taste but balance with dried fruits is just perfect.
Last but not least, Dessert is Pina Colada Cheese, Caramelized Pineapple, Pandan Sponge Cake and Pina Colada Cheese. Every single detail on our plate are nicely done by chef, even a small piece of pineapple are caramelized and grill, Pandan sponge cake are extremely rich in flavor while the main dessert has strong coconut fragrance with balanced sweetness.
