It is raining cats and dogs here in Penang today, follow by loud claps of thunder and occasional flashes of lightning since last night. For a nice family dinner, we decided to go somewhere new so end up picking Blue Reef Fish & Chips (a few shops away from Annabelle’s Place)



View from outside



One of the coolest feature walls I’ve ever seen. Painted a vivid grey, it displays artwork of the Blue Reef cafe, Sprite and Coca Cola. On the tables, there were similar sheets of blank paper as place mats on each table which I assume makes for an interesting pre-dinner entertainment if you were to bring along a box of crayons (my wife wanted to ask the waiters for colour pencils but I said a firm NO)


The bar-like counter where your drinks and desserts are prepared and check out the huge TV up in the corner.


A tall glass of fizzy lime sherbet. Loved this drink as a kid and was delighted to find this on the menu when not many places serve this anymore.


Left: Beer battered fish and chips. It’s a huge portion and authentically English with a splash of vinegar and lemon.

Right: Bread crumbed seafood platter. As promised on the menu, this was definitely big enough for 2


Chicken schnitzel with a generous serving of salad and chips.


My brother-in-law’s Aglio Olio with Prawn n Bacon pasta, according to him, it was pretty good.


My steamed barramundi (locally known as siakap) with spicy nonya sauce served with white rice and a separate plate of vegetables with light oyster sauce.


Pan Sheared Salmon on my second visit to Blue Reef. Even thought I dont like cuscus, they are superbly made. Salmon is nicely done without being too dry. Thumbs up…


The crem brulee was fantastic with a slightly different twist. After breaking through the crisp, caramel surface, the velvety egg custard underneath had a hint of citrus which made it a delight to savor after a great dinner.


Hint : If you are not bore with western / fusion food, then this is for you. The food is good and if you are looking for a new environment, why not? Service staffs are friendly and make sure you call to book.

ps- Google map has not updated their satellite picture, but the map will give you an idea where the location is.
