Romantic Dining at Uncle Zack By-The-Beach in Parkroyal Hotel Penang

If you have read my previous post, you realized I always like to choose restaurants that I like for my birthday dinner regardless whether it is fine dining or not. We went to Dragon-i and Paddington House of Pancake before for my birthday dinner. Lol..if you haven't read, click here! Have such a great afternoon outing with dear. ^^

Looking around for places that I like is seriously hard! Have been looking through Macalister Mansion, Suffolk House, The View at Equitorial Hotel and so on but still couldn't find any restaurants that I like. Went to Bagan, 32 Mansion, The Sire Musuem, That Little Wine Bar before so not much choices left in Penang..*down*

After a short while, *almost giving up searching*, I found this place! Fall in love when the first sight I read about the review! The catchy part is the magnificent view! How can you resist on that??


If you bring your girlfriend along, she will certainly looking at you teary..says "How can you manage to find such a nice place in Penang?!" Then feeling so touched throughout the dinner, keep looking at you, thinking you are so charming, this and that...! Lol...*think too much haha* 

Feeling quite upset to see the photo outcome turn out quite bad. Gonna ask bro to teach me how to function DSLR already..>< I just know how to take photo and adjust the ISO! Lol...we should reach earlier..didn't expect the sun set so early at 6.45pm..:(

Let me present to you!  

Uncle Zack By-The-Beach in Parkroyal Hotel, Penang
Have a break on top of a wooden deck right by the beach, offering a spectacular view of the sunset while you indulge in tasty tapas, snacks, hearty meals and sinfully delicious desserts.

The food ranging from RM30 to RM70 for main course. I think is value for the price because I have surveyed a lot of fine dining restaurants, the price is around this range as well. So I think with this gorgeous view, this is definitely worth of price! :) *candid shot*

Really love this place! You can come here with your friends as well especially those from overseas and outstation, they will definitely love this place! ^^

See how happy I am! Come here for birthday celebration is definitely a smart choice..girls love this very much..Hehe..happy birthday to myself and thanks dear for bringing me here! 

He is glad that I am happy! :) 

Thanks to the server so much for taking this great shot! Although turns out quite blur but we love it very much. Actually we were here to celebrate our 4th Anniversary as well. We have been together for 4 years! Is not easy to maintain this long distance relationship as both of us are always pack with our schedule and can't see each other so often. 

Anyhow, I am glad that we have made it so far and there are still long way to go. I know everything will be fine as we are blessed with friends and families around us..Happy 4th Anniversary Dear!

I always prefer to dine in Hotel if there are any celebrations. Just don't know why..Lol...

Can't help it to fall in love with the panoramic view..especially the sea breeze and sound of lapping waves! Girls just love it so much..without reason! Lolol...

Drink is served. We don't usually order drinks but this time he decided to order one so we picked Frappucino! Lol..people order wine, we order coffee! visit to Starbucks. *epic*

Frappucino (RM16)

Complimentary bread served! *Big portion* Candle light dinner now..hehe..romantic or not la you say..haha!

Here you go, my main course of the day! 

 Grilled Baby Chicken (RM35)
One and a half pieces of baby chicken served with the signature sauce. Sideline would be potato wedges AGAIN *afternoon had some and night again..LOL*, grilled corn, and grilled tomato. I love the tenderness of the chicken, it cooked perfectly well. To me, RM35 considered reasonable with such dining place.:)

The server offer to take us a picture again. Thanks for his prompt and courteous service!

Another main course that we ordered. *squeezing the lemon juice on the fillet!* Initially, we wanted to order lamb or steak but they have take them off from the menu so no choice we end up ordering fish and chicken. 

 Pan Fried Baramundi Fillet (RM55)
This fillet is served with boiled baby potatoes, seasoned spinach,  grilled tomato and citrus butter sauce. I think this is quite costly but dear said the fish is fresh and goes along well with the citrus sauce. :)

Besides the two main course, we even ordered a pizza for ourselves..big eater! Lol...end up we can't finish the pizza and ta pao back home! :( 

Pizza-on-your-own (RM35)
Design your pizza according to your preferences. You may choose up to 4 toppings. We chose feta cheese, smoked turkey, smoked salmon and sundried tomatoes. Don't really like the pizza cz the crust is too thick! 

Happy 22th birthday to myself and Happy 4th Anniversary to my dear!

I am very happy with such great dining experience! I don't know next year where should I go for my birthday celebration already..went to David Brown's Restaurant in Penang Hill for birthday high tea and to the beach for dinner..I don't know where can I gain better dining experience than this! Lolol..I like to eat that's why he always like to bring me around to have good food..thanks dear for always making me happy!

Love you so much for giving the best to me all the time. I will treasure the time spending with you and looking forward to our love journey..appreciate for your presence! :)
