Relish - Uniquely Malaysian, Gurney Paragon Mall

Relish, one of the latest eatery in Gurney Paragon Mall, is the latest addition to The Chicken Rice Shop (TCRS) Group, was first introduced on August 29, 2014 in Gurney Paragon Mall in Penang. Relish is the place to be for those in search of a little blend of the old with the new in an inviting landscape of delectable flavours.

The cosy ambience features contemporary furniture and finishing accendted with Malaysian insipired vintage wall displays and antiques.

The ambiance makes dining in such a relaxing manner.

Relish offers an exciting menu of traditional Malaysian meals in a contemporary style, ranging from its signature Nyonya Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik and Nasi Lemak with Rendang Ayam Kunyit to Nyonya Laksa and Spicy Smoked Beef Pasta to Yam cake, Penang Rojak and BBQ Chicken and Grilled Cheese Toast.

Love your toast with a savoury cheesy taste, then try the BBQ Chicken and Grilled Cheese Toast. 

Penang Rojak, one of the sought after delicacy. Fresh local fruit and vegetable mix together with a special mixture of shrimp paste. Oh heavenly.  

Yam Cake does not get any bettet than the ones served here. The yam cake that Relish sells is the real deal. Stuffed with loads of yam unlike the ones that you buy outside, pretty much made up of flour. Every bite is simply yam-milicious. 

Come to penang and everybody talks about laksa, 

The curry laksa that Relish offer has an interesting taste in overall. Usually yellow noodle is being used but Relish uses Shanghai Noodle in this dish which makes it even more interesting. If you love something more on a stronger flavour then the Curry Laksa will be your choice. 

While the Nyonya Laksa is unlike your oridnary Laksa Lemak that you find. It has a nice mild flavour. Suitable especially for those who doesn't such strong flavours.

Nasi Lemak with Rendang Ayam Kunyit. Malaysia's all time favourite food, nasi lemak. Fragrant coconut rice served with tumeric sauce chicken, sambal ikan bilis, peanut and egg.

Nasi Kunyit with Curry Chicken. When I think of nasi kunyit, I tend to think of when babies turn 1 month old, and this will be the full moon gift given. The taste and the texture of the Nasi kunyit is perfect and with the curry chicken that goes with it. Awesome combination.

Nyonya Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik, i personally like the dish. Served with keropok lekor, this is something rather unsual to be found being served here in Penang. Usually most will tend to serve some normal keropok as the side, Keropok lekor is a traditional fish cracker snack in Terrenganu. 

Nyonya Fried Rice with Chicken Satay. Nyonya fried rice served along with chicken covered in loads of peanut sauce and winged bean, locally known as kacang botol.

Chicken Satay Burger. Simply unique as everything related to satay is found in this burger. From chicken meat, to cucumber, onions rings and peanuts is placed between charcoal bun. Unlike the usual western where burgers are served with fries, the Chicken Satay Burger is served with Keropok Lekor. Very local touch given to the burger.

Spicy Smoked Beef Pasta. If you love pasta especially with beef, you will pretty much love this pasta dish.

Durian, the king of fruits. If you love durian, then I am certain that you will love the Durian Pancake by Relish. Contains premium durian flesh, wrapped by a layer of crepe which is certain that will make you craving for more.

If you like something sweet, there is a selection of local desserts that you can choose from.
 There is also the Durian Chendol, Bubur Cha Cha, Mango Mountain and Pulut Hitam with Tong Yuen

Nothing like having some thirst quenchers during a sunny hot day. A variety of drinks and coolers are made also available on the menu. Shown here is the Summer Sprtiz and the Strawberry Mojito. I love the unique mojito of strawberry taste.

Apart from this, there is also a comfortable selection of signature coffees including the Gula Melaka Latter, Mocha Latte and Gula Melaka Affogato as well as loose leaf teas such as Moroccan Mint Green Tea and Chamomile.

The usage of Gula Melaka is something pretty awesome. It gives it a twist.

The recent craze for affogato, I am sure that you may have not tried affogato with Gula Melaka. How interesting is that. But if you are there, you have to get 1 and try it yourself 

Relish also offers Afternoon Tea for Two, served daily from 3pm to 6pm .Treat you tastebuds to tasting portions of Nasi Kunyit with Curry Chicken, Yam Cake, Chicken Toasts, Penang Rojak, Ice Shooters, and Durian Pancake accompanied with coffee or tea.

Currently Relish is having great Lunch deals. Weekday lunch specials from Mondays to Fridays 11am-3pm offers a selection of Nyonya Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik, Hainanese Chicken Rice or Claypot Chicken Rice, Nasi Kunyit with Curry Chicken and Nyonya Laksa.

If you are looking for Malaysian food, from various parts of Malaysia then it has to be Relish as their saying goes, "Uniquely Malaysian".

Thank you Relish for hosting us.
