My birthday dinner at The Sire Museum Restaurant, Penang
The concept of The Sire is very special because other than serving food, it is also a museum, with more than half its space dedicated to a bountiful display of artifacts, antique furnitures and collections of the late Yeap Chor Ee and his family.
This is how the interior looks like. We were seated on the right, underneath a huge woven cloth banner given as a gift to Yeap Chor Ee from his brother/sister. There's a small mezzanine floor to the left atop the bar which gives a nice vantage point. While near the triple arched door there's a lovely wall filled from the top to bottom with lotsa greenery and potted plants! Though the dining hall is small, there's a different view from each table. :-)
Our table ♥
Complimentary bread with cheese on top... yummm... but it looks a bit burnt here hmm...
My lamb chop. Hmm... to tell the truth it didn't taste great, perhaps becos of the "fusion" part... which I can't exactly tell.
His seafood spaghetti. This one turned out to be nicer than the lamb chop so halfway through dinner we just exchanged playes :-P
And there's even a pool at the back of the restaurant, and a small bridge to cross through! Instantly refreshing just looking at the water feature. Amazing how Yeap Chor Ee had lived back then...
Going up using the spiral staircase to a treasure trove...
There's even a conference table.
A lot of precious Peranakan chinaware.
And last but not least, thank you darling for such a lovely birthday treat. *Muah! (LOL I look really tired here...)
