Log in

Some time back in July 2010, I was returning to hometown for a business trip. @khoosc excitedly informed me of a newly opened place in town serving Sichuan & Hunan cuisine – Chin’s. Situated right beside the ferry terminal, under the same group as Soho, the place was luxuriously decorated in a totally awesome oriental style setting. Focusing on serving quality cuisine, they employed a troupe of Chinese chef to ensure the authenticity of their menu.

This unique by the sea restaurant is really exquisitely designed,  decorated with hand painting saucers on each tables only to be displayed and not for use. Plus, there is a calligraphy art on the bar counter.

I was fascinated by first the interior design & second its menu that I insisted on placing the orders myself for a group of 4 of us.

Entrance & bar

Classy Interior & distinguish  setup

Such views not too much to ask for when you are in Penang right?

Chinese cucumber salad (pretty much like what I tried in China)

Duck Confit, best dish of the night.Crispy aromatic skin with succulent meat wrap together with green onions and sweet sauce in a thin sheet of special pancake.

Steamed diced green and red pepper fish. Never find this type of cooking any place else other than here. It was one of the delicacy of HuNan Cuisine.

MaPo Taufu, the famous SiChuan dish

Chili Chicken. Not usual here in Malaysia. This dish was no where near what I tried back in China.

Oil Cooked Beef. Very silky and delicious. Good.

4 seasons beans. Long bean fried with dried shrimps, minced pork, chili and some garlic. Not quite similar to its origin taste but acceptable

Jello cakes for dessert

Fried pumpkin & red bean. Awesome shit. slurps

Service from the manager was at its top notch – regularly followed up on the taste of their food. All I have to say, it’s a fabulous place with a pleasant ambience and most important great food. Chin’s is by far  the nearest to any Sichuan and Hunan cuisine I’d enjoyed while I was based in China for work. Thumbs up!
