Off we went to the g Hotel for the food tasting extravaganza. We parked at the adjacent Gurney Plaza carpark because we had heard that the parking fee in the g Hotel was exorbitantly high! The hotel was created in the same vein as Royale Bintang in The Curve. One of the hotel exits leads to an alfresco dining area and outdoor walkway which leads directly to the Gurney Plaza shopping mall. I could not take any pictures because we were really hungry then and was only thinking of food…. and after the meal, well….I was just too plain lazy…. anyway, I’ll try to take some at another time… maybe next weekend…..you know why? Right outside the g Hotel, we have the newly opened Chili’s, the first ever in Penang. I heard that apart from the bottomless drinks, they also have bottomless nachos with unlimited salsa too. Don’t know if that’s true…
Anyway, the ambience exuded by the lobby and registration area of the g Hotel was one of class, sophistication and abstractness. It had modern art decor and equally modern furniture. The lobby area was vast too and there was a lot of breathing space. Good for people who suffer from claustrophobia. Unfortunately, the posh interior was marred by the fact that there was someone smoking away in the lobby, oblivious to his surroundings. I’m sorry, but are people allowed to smoke in hotel lobbies? I wanted to look for the No Smoking sign and tell him off, but we were in a rush to get to the food, so I let it go. Lucky him!
Back to the food-tasting.ï¿½ The cutlery was really nice. I especially like the plates they used: in clean classic white, and it was shaped in a square curvy shape, very different from the usual round plates.ï¿½ The food connoisseur in me gave a nod of approval at first glance.ï¿½ Here’s the list of food that we have the opportunity to savor:
And my favorite from the list above are:
Can you guess what each of those are? Of course, this is just my opinion, and the rest would probably have their own say too. Oh yeah, by the way, I have posted a picture of me in the *sneak preview* attire from my previous post… it’s somewhere out there, but you’ll need to look for it…. 😛 please excuse my shameless way of generating web traffic. MUAHAHAHAHAhahahahahah!!!!!
