It was a great experience for me during my first visit to Tiffins, Parkroyal Hotel Penang. It has been always an urge for me to visit for the second time due to the place offers high-quality food, classy ambience and excellent service. Of course all of these come with a price. I will only choose this place on special occasions.
The front view of the Tiffins Restaurant in Parkroyal Hotel, Penang which was taken on my first visit.
As usual, the starter is always served with choices of rolls, you can request for as many as possible.
As how the westerners like to eat, the rolls are served with olive oil. However this is not my cup of tea.
We ordered for some butter instead and that came in 3 flavours – broccoli, garlic and the original.
The house white wine that came as a complement to our Prestige membership.
The free flow of freshly-brewed coffee which was thick and aromatic.
Something unique about the coffee is that instead of using normal sugar, the sugar comes in “stick” form and in 2 colours – brown and white.
Another appetiser that was served to us was grilled chicken which was the same as my previous visit.
This time, there was a trio performing jazz songs in the restaurant. They even visited table by table for any special songs they can play personally for you. They are no normal bands as they have 40 years’ of experience playing jazz songs. Even the instruments they used such as double bass and, are not something we could find in modern bands.
My visit this time was not for the set dinner, I went for Wagyu beef instead.
Wagyu beef a.k.a Kobe Beef, is a culinary delicacy and considered to be the tastiest and most succulent meat in the world. Wagyu’s superior eating quality is due to its wonderful marbling, which gives the meat enchanced flavour and a tender texture, superb juiciness and a luxurious taste. Wagyu is expertly graded from 1 to 12 according to its marbling and 6 is considered the perfect balance between leanness and fat content. Tiffins restaurant serves wagyu beef with the grade of 6.
The Chairman’s Wagyu Beef Tenderloin, the beef comes with pocini, morel mushrooms and garlic mashed potato.
The second order was also another Chairman’s Wagyu Beef Tenderloin but with the side of fresh garden salad.
The texture of the meat is juicy and soft as the marble is well spreaded on the meat. For meat lovers, you should go for medium-rear to taste its softness as it melted in your mouth.
The sauce that we ordered were red wine and mushroom cream sauce, although the wagyu beef is already good enough to eat it on its own.
The whole meal cost us a whopping RM542.8. However with our Parkroyal Prestige card and coupons, we only need to pay RM213.9 as we get 50% off the bill and also redeemed our RM100 credit coupon.
