Dining in the outdoors - Happy Mothers Day!

By Anonymous - Monday, May 08, 2017

We had an early mother’s day celebration last weekend together with my MIL as Ahlleenh Chan will not be available on the 14th *and I’ve got some other plans for the 14th . We decided to have lunch at Tree Monkey Restaurant. It’s going to be everyone’s first time except me.

The sloppy Road leading to  Tree Monkey Restaurant
Tree Monkey restaurant is attached to spice garden in Penang Island ,Malaysia. This unique “back to nature” restaurant set in the green, tree-filled Tropical Spice Gardens in Teluk Bahang looks like is a must-visit for both locals and visitors alike. 

I made reservations for 1.30pm *yes, I know its hot! Upon arrival we had to walk up a sloppy road and climbed some stairs, upon reaching the restaurant we were welcomed by the spectacular sea view *worth the climb, beautiful Thai theme decor  and it wasn’t hot like I expected it to be. The alfresco outlet is set on a wooden platform * which according to the owner was constructed using traditional methoud and traditional materials of ropes where you can sit at one of the imported hard-wood tables and chairs, and gaze upon a gorgeous view of the Andaman Sea.  The whole environment is very rustic. Tree Monkey Restaurant is also a Pork Free Restaurant.

Love the 'woods' 

We ordered Pineapple fried rice; it’s made with chunks of pineapple, some veggies and served inPineapple *thumbs up for the food presentation. We also ordered green curry, yummy chunks of chicken in green curry. Did you know what herbs they use in green curry mainly? pea eggplant, kaffir lime leaves, Thai basil leaves and coriander leaves. We also had Tom yam *a must in a Thai Restaurant  A Chicken Salad and We ordered an additional fish cake for kiddo, and it turns out that I ate the most of it. For desert we had the 'Tub Tim Krob' and Mango Sticky Rice, which did not fail to impress me *I am crazy for dessert. We had Lemongrass Ginger Honey for drinks, which I will highly recommend, because it will definitely blow your mind.
