The Eatery - Four Points by Sheraton Penang


My this year's Merdeka celebration was filled with the harmonious flavours at The Eatery, Four Points by Sheraton Penang. The menu underwent some works and now, there is an even wider selection of food to please your palates. From Oriental to European style of cooking, the array of cuisine made available will probably give you a tough time, because choosing among the many is not going to be easy. Well that's a good thing haha..



Located just across the reception area of the hotel, The Eatery sets in a bright vibrant and colorful ambiance with a nice view of the swimming pool and the sea.




Are you ready? Ready to start drooling? haha let's go :)

Smoked Salmon Paillard RM 38.00
Capers berries, roasted plum tomatoes, rocket salad, shaved parmesan and balsamic dressing.

Generous serving of smoked salmon, topped with rocket salad, shaved parmesan and drizzled with balsamic dressing. A bite into a mix of the ingredients gives you such a nice appetite opening.



Roasted Pumpkin Soup RM 18.00
Spinach Ravioli and Garlic Bread
I'm never much a big fan of pumpkin soup, but boy, this soup was the bomb. The rich flavour of the soup on overall just makes you wanting more of it.


Wild Mushroom Soup RM 18.00
Homemade Creamy Mushroom Soup with Garlic Bread
Each scoop of the  mushroom soup, offered a nice blend of mushrooms in it. 


Here is what we had on that day. 



Sloppy Joe Burger RM 45.00
Fresh minced Australian beef patty dipped in black pepper sauce, beef slice, cheese and onion marmalde. Topped with fried egg, served with Brioche bun and french fries.

One of the main thing to look for in a burger is the patty. One wrong patty and the whole burger is gone but the burger back here was really delicious. I loved the tender juicy patty that just make the burger a wholesome one.



Carbonara RM 30.00
Creamy cheese sauce, crispy beef slice and parmesan cheese.

So little ingredients, it's either you make it or you don't but I'm truly delighted that the carbonara back here, even though it was kind of cold ( yea we took photos until it became cold hahaha) but the taste was still as good as it was still warm. This is a must try!


Gambroni RM 45.00
Tiger prawn, spicy plum tomato sauce, garlic, fresh Italian basil and arugula leaf.

The tiger prawns itself is already calling you out. The tomato sauce base with the spaghetti was nice. 


As for the main, you may opt for items from fish to beef.

Lamb Shank "Provancale" RM 65.00
Mash potato, mushroom ragout, roasted baby carrots and double braised thyme jus.

The lamb shank was nicely seasoned, and tender. The braised thyme jus has such nice aroma and taste. Together with the lamb shank meat, oh heavenly!



If you just want to sit back and enjoy the exciting flavours of oriental food, there's a few choices for you to pick from.

Hainan Classic Chicken Chop RM 35.00
Deep-fried crispy boneless chicken thigh, peas sprout salad, garlic fried rice and oriental bbq sauce.
Though the version back here is a lil different from what I was expecting, the combination of the fragrant garlic rice and the chicken was delicious. The sauce had a lil tad of sweetness in it.


Let's pizza :)

Diavola Pizza RM 35.00
Tomato sauce, chicken chorizo, red peppers, spanish onions and chili flakes.

The thin crust was to my liking. One bite into it and the bursting pepperish spiciness kicks in.





Rendang Pahlawan "Temasik" RM 45.00
Braised Angus beef fillet in brown coconut chili paste with wild turmeric leaf infusion served with steam rice, vegetable pickle and crackers.


The cute adorable cupcakes were specially made by the chefs. These were specially crafted for Merdeka celebration.


And it was then time to end the meal with some sweet note.

Walnut & Cheese Brownie Bar RM 22.00
Vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Now this is the nothing could possibly go wrong dessert. The nice moist brownie tasted so good with the chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream. It's like a match made in heaven. Can I have 10 more please :)


Cafe Tiramisu RM 22.00


Here's some of the drinks that we ordered for ourselves.

Ixora Hotel Penang - Corporate Appreciation Night "Sparks with Ixora II"


I recently visited Ixora Hotel Penang upon their invitation for their Sparks with Ixora II night. I was such an honour to be there for a night that showcased the brand new additions to the hotel. Hotel guest can look forward to an even more delightful experience on overall at the hotel.

While waiting for the ballroom to open its doors for event, we were treated to light bites and an irresistible presentation of chocolate fountain. Everyone was flocking at that area as it was beautifully presented. Skewers of fruits that were so hard to resist in chocolate.

Pizzeria at Hard Rock Hotel Penang


At Pizzeria, it's all about siting back, relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze blowing while you indulge away all the beautiful and scrumptious creations back here. Dining at Pizzeria isn't the same, as dining here isn't confined by the 4 walls but instead a cozy ambiance with such nice outdoor atmosphere makes dining such pleasurable.

The menu offers a wide selection of mouth-watering items such salads, soups, pasta, pizzas and my favourite part of the meal, desserts. Slurrrrrp. 


As you walk pass the poolside, Pizzeria welcomes diners to an open-air dining experience.  


The chefs made our table look so gorgeous with all the deco.


Spot the Chef throwing the pizza up in air.


This was my first time dining at Pizzeria, so it's time to drool looking at all the delicious goodies I had the chance to try.

Antipasto RM 38.00 nett
Grilled octopus, rolled beef pepperoni,  smoked turkey rolls, roasted mix peppers, grilled zucchini, grilled eggplant, black olives, mushrooms, feta cheese, garlic bread and balsamic vinegar.

The antipasto on general was pretty interesting. It just such an eye-catcher from afar.







Minestrone Soup RM 21 nett
Mixed vegetables, shell pasta and garlic bread.
The minestrone soup offered a nice sourish tomato soup which was just right. Nicely seasoned as well.



Chicken Popcorn RM 26 nett
Deep fried sesame chicken popcorn served with garden salad and wasabi mayo.
This dish is simple yet it was so addictive. When it's still hot, a dip into the wasabi mayo and once you had it, you just can't stop. The nice outer crunch and moist chicken meat was just so delicious.



Cheese Sauce Gratin RM 38 nett

Ricotta Spinach Ravioli


These 2 dishes was just so good that if I could fit all in, I would just eat both on my own.  But be warned, this pasta dish is a little heavy especially the load of cheese they offer but it was - satisfaction. The Ricotta Spinach Ravioli was just beautiful. You get the nice firm bite of the ravioli and the oozing cheese covering it, so good.


Four Cheese Ravioli


Penne Napolitana - RM 36nett
Tomato sauce with garlic, onions, cherry tomatoes, basil leaves and parmesan cheese.

For those who just love it as simple as possible, then you may love this.



Spaghetti Meatballs RM 33nett
Tomato basil sauce with chicken meatballs, cherry tomatoes and parmesan cheese.

The meatballs was nicely seasoned and each bite into it offered a nice blend of juicy moist centre.




Aglio E Olio RM 35nett
Garlic, olive oil, sweet basil, cherry tomatoes and chili flakes.

The spiciness kick from the pasta was just right. Wasn't too empowering or I would have drown the whole area with my sweat. 



Sambal Chicken Calzone [9" - RM 41nett] [12"-RM 46nett]
Half moon pizza stuffed tomato base, capsicum, onion, pineapple, sambal, chicken and mozarella cheese.

Now that looks like one pretty huge karipap. Well instead of the open-faced pizza, the Calzone is a baked folded pizza. Filled with a nice fragrant mild spicy sambal filling together with all the other ingredients. Best eaten when it's still hot.



Pepperoni 9" - RM 35nett , 12" - RM 40nett
Tomato base, pepperoni slices, mozzarella cheese, onions and cherry tomatoes. 


The pizza's are freshly made and you may just have a look at the chef flipping up the pizza base.


Frutti Di Mare - 9" - RM 42nett , 12" - RM 48nett
Marinated squid, prawns, seabass, garlic flakes, mozarella cheese and a dash of lemon herb dressing. The mixture of ingredients such as squid and seabass gave a nice seafood flavour while the pizza on overall was so appetizing.





While for desserts, make sure you have room for it.

Lemon Cake - RM 22nett
Italian lemon cake served with lemon cream and berry coulis.

I have always been craving for something citrusy and the Lemon cake was just perfect. The moist cake which was mild sweet and the nice aroma from the cake was just so appetizing. I could probably use a whole cake. Haha



Tiramisu - RM 26nett


If you plan to go up to Pizzeria, then don't forget to enjoy the beautiful sunset scenery back there. Great food with great ambiance, I guess nothing could possibly beat that.





To quench your thirst, the Arizona Sunset is a drink to have. Made from Mandarin syrup, lime juice, mango juice and lemonade. 


Pizzeria certainly is a spot that not only offers a bountiful of delicious flavours but also ables on to enjoy such perfect atmosphere to go it with. So Rock your way to Pizzeria at Hard Rock Hotel Penang and Rock away to a happy tummy :)

Pizzeria operates 11am-11pm daily.
