Well, again it is not my usual style to recommend famous and well-known restaurants. However, I have to recommend this place due to its nice service and great environment. For those who are looking for pleasant environment to chit-chat while having dinner, this is an excellent place to be. The name of this restaurant is called “The Ship”.
Before you enter the restaurant, the outlook has already told you the name of this restaurant. The restaurant is actually built into a ship structure and in Penang this is the only “The ship” with the entire ship structure.
I was once told by my friend that The Ship only serves foreigners. But instead there are many locals who dined there too. During my friend’s patronage to this restaurant, his order took him 30 minutes to prepare and when they ordered for sky juice, the waiter served them with dark faced. However, in my experience it’s totally different. I only waited for 10 minutes for my food to arrive and the captain also did some heat check on us twice for their overall service and food. May be I look like foreigner? Arrigato!!!
This time I have ordered “Tenderloin Sizzling Steak” and also “Black Mushroom Steak”. Both are at the price of RM38.90.
For the Sizzling Steak, you will be tied with a napkin around your neck before you started your meal.
Bowl of salad as appetizer which the bowl looks exactly like the one in “Coliseum Cafe”. Nothing much to comment on the salad as it is just like the usual salad.
The bun looks like a normal one but in fact it is not. This is because it’s served hot from the oven and the aroma of the bread is so tempting. With a slice of New Zealand butter, it actually melts into your mouth.
Creamy mushroom soup, again nothing much to comment on this usual soup.
This one I got comment, the ship also OEM their “premium quality” chili sauce. Actually it tastes the same as “tupai” (squirrel) brand chili sauce.
Although they claim to have “The Best Steak in Town”, after I tasted the Tenderloin Sizzling Steak, I find that Coliseum Cafe still owns the title of “Best Steak”. The textile is nice but not as tender as the one at Coliseum Cafe. The brown sauce is good for Penang standard as you can’t find anywhere else with such sauce, just that I still prefer the one at Coliseum Cafe.
Nice presentation for the “Black Mushroom Steak” I love the way they place all the food. Neat and well served. The brown sauce and the steak could have been better.
