“Another summer day, has come and gone away, in Paris and Rome, but I wanna go home, I miss you, you know” – A song by Michael Buble. It always gives me the feeling of going home when I travel too far away from home for too long. Sometimes dining at the airport terminal while waiting for transit will give the feeling of home sick for the traveler.
Anyway, for those who want to get a feel of home sick while dining at the airport terminal, you are always welcome to dine and drink at Terminal 1 or T1 Restaurant and Pub.
Locating this place is not too difficult at all. If you know how to go to Queensbay Mall in Penang, check out the left side of Queensbay Mall and there are new shoplots known as Bay Avenue.
The interior layout of the place is very cozy. However, this place gives the perception of a pub more than a restaurant.
Another distinguish feature here is the uniform of the waitresses and the waiters here. The waitresses are dressed in sweet Lolita costumes. Kawaii neh…(cute). She felt so embarrassed when I told her I want to take her photo.
Whereas the waiter is dressed like a pilot, cool huh? You can be a pilot even if you don’t know how to fly a plane.
Each day the restaurant serves different menu. I went there on Monday therefore I have got 2 options from the Monday menu.
Set Lunch Option:
- Belacan chicken wings with fried rice, white coffee (cold/hot) or red tea (cold/hot) – RM9.90.
- Penne Vege Creme, white coffee (cold/hot) or red tea (cold/hot) – RM9.90.
Besides these, there are other set lunch from Monday – Friday, all priced at RM9.90 per set.
The white coffee was quite nice, it is not the same like the usual 3 in 1 instant coffee mix. Instead the aroma of the coffee was strong and thick. I could taste some chocolate inside, not sure if this is Mocha or White Coffee. Anyway it was not too sweet, quite nice for a set lunch coffee.
The main dish of belacan chicken wings with fried rice. The fried rice was acceptable and normal, while the chicken wings was so crunchy and delicious. However the portion was not big enough. As for the side dishes, they had kimchi and also veggie.
Penne Vege Creme, the dish was cooked with penne pasta added with lots of cream sauce, olives and mushroom slices. The taste was delicious and rich. I personally feel that the first few mouths were great but when half way through the meal, I started to feel full due to the rich cream sauce.
Overall, this place serves average and acceptable food. The ambience of this place is more to bistro and pub than restaurant. The waiting time for the food was slightly long, we waited for at least 20 minutes even though we were the only customers there. For those who are on the rush, this is not a suitable place. However, someone told me that CHAR-BOILED LAMB CHOP set lunch on Thursday lunch is great. I have still yet to try out.
