A warm dinner at at Four Season Tea Restaurant

We had our dinner with gu gu's family, bo bo and grandparents at Four Season Tea Restaurant on 9.6.2011. This restaurant is still remained as our favourite Chinese Restaurant in Penang. Our family always like to have our dinner here because the environment is comfortable and the place is clean as well. Due to the poor quality of pictures taken on previous visits, mom had no chance to post about this place until now.

Four Seasons Tea Houses( main outlet) is located at Trengganu Road, Penang. Four Seasons actually served nice food with reasonable price. They do keep update their menu as changing season. Their new dishes come out every few months.

Bo bo made orders. The waiter introduced some favourite dishes in the restaurant. Their service is efficient and quick.
Four Seasons Tea Restaurant also serve a free warm soup of the day for their customers before the serving of main dishes. What a good effort to attract customers.

One of the their signature dishes is the oyster noodles. In Chinese, we call it 蚝面. We like oyster noodles very much especially grandpa. It is the "must” dish that you should try it out if you like oyster. The noodle is fried with shrimps, fish fillet, and fried pork fat( bak poh in Hokkein)

Another signature dish is spring roll. In Chinese, we call 春卷. It is tasty if you dip it with special sauce which provided. We did not make this order tonight.

A huge pot of Claypot tofu. It has a lots of ingredients. Besides tofu, we could find leek, carrot, Chinese cabbage, mushrooms, onion and generous amount of roasted pork slices.
Runner Beans which fried in sambal dried prawns. Our family's favorite. The dried prawns sambal in chili paste adds on the extra goodness of this dish.

Silky smooth Tao Fu accompanied with enoki mushrooms and vegetables. The tofu is deep fried. Perfection with fragrant outer layer and smooth inside. Both of you like enoki mushroom so much.
A must try dish. The Mocha spare ribs. It is very well seasoned.

This curry prawns turn out real good with the distinct taste of curry. Great for those curry prawn lovers. It came steaming hot and goes superbly well with rice. The base is thick and flavorful.

The garlic fish is excellent. Served with plenty of fried garlic on top of the deep fried fish with their special sauce.
A favourite for the children. This belacan fried chicken are very crispy. Mom absolutely loves belacan fried chicken but too lazy to prepare them. Frying chicken means getting oil all over the kitchen. It takes time to clean up the oily surfaces.
Asparagus stir fry with prawns and some meat. The prawns are beautifully sweet and fresh tasting when accompany with the asparagus.
The flavor of onion and prawns with fried eggs tastes great without any other flavors.
Everyone was satisfied and we had a great dinner together. God made everything beautiful in His time.
After the great meal, we were haing durians in a fruit stall. There was few tables with benches that had been set up for groups to sit and eat in. We had a lot of durians which in a rich creamy yellow during this festival. We brought them from our student's parents. They were cheap and delicious.
On a full tummy, we gathered at our house. Bo Bo, gu zhan and dad had a great time with the Chinese Tea. We had chit-chatting along till midnight.Both of you had a happy time with Anthony,Justin and Samuel.

Thank the Lord for the precious moments of life. What a beautiful moment with grandparents, bo bo and gu gu's family.
