32 at The Mansion @ Georgetown, Penang

This is my very first time having food review for fine dining restaurant.
This experience was very extraordinary and impressive.
Even from the exterior of the building was already looks kinda grand and spectacular.

They have also obtained good ratings at Tripadvisor. ThreeSixty Sky Bar is also part of their business.

This place is so beautiful that when you walk into the mansion, you will feel like you are entering some high class places.

Catering or private party and events are also available in 32 at The Mansion, this place can caters up to 200 people.

Actually you can choose to dine in the mansion, or you may also dine at Beach Blanket Babylon, if you prefer outdoor and some nice seaview.

The outdoor seats were also perfect for some events or party

This is what they have in their bar, I wish I could have this at home.

We were served with some delicious food, inclusive of appetizer and main course, ended with some perfect desserts. 
Piquant Salad with Spicy Lemongrass Vinaigrette
RM 18.00
This salad was really appetizing! The salad was very fresh and the dressing has totally conquered my taste bud! The taste of lemongrass wasn't too heavy and the whole dressing was rather unique, it was slightly spicy and sour which is a great appetizer to kick start your dinner.
Highly recommended!

Crab Laksa Lemak
RM 24.00
Laksa lemak is not so common in Penang as majority of Penang people prefer Asam Laksa than Laksa Lemak. I'm someone who love Laska Lemak and therefore this dish has made my night quite perfect! Though I didn't see any crab meat, but the taste of the soup was really filled with fresh crab taste and it wasn't too spicy or sour. The soup wasn't really watery, just like drinking curry soup. Everything was just perfect when lime and prawn sauce added!
Must try!

Fish Laksa Lemak
RM 14.00
This is the fish version of Laksa Lemak, the soup of Fish Laksa Lemak was more watery compared to Crab Laksa Lemak. Not forgot to mention that the laksa noodles was really chewy. Unlike some laksa noodle which can be too soft or too hard. The taste of the whole laksa was really perfect if you squeeze all the lime and add their special made prawn sauce into the soup.
Highly recommended!

Vietnam Pho
RM 18.00
This beef noodle was served with raw bean sprouts, so do remember to add those bean sprouts when the soup is still hot. There are juicy beef meatballs and beef slices in this dish. Their special made chilli sauce was really delicious and appetizing as it is not too spicy plus it was a bit sour.

6 Spice Marinated BBQ Chicken served with Buttered Rice Timbale
RM 38.00
Chicken thigh was used in this dish, it was rather tender and juicy. It may looks a bit over grilled but I can tell you that it is not. It was really grilled to perfection that the whole piece of chicken was really tasty. The buttered rice was also quite unique and delicious, especially when you can have it together with baby carrots.
Highly recommended!

BBQ Beef Rib
RM 56.00
From the look of the dish was really making people hungry. The beef rib was really soft and tender. The slow cooked potato was also one of the plus point in this dish. It also went perfectly with ginger bud puree because the puree was really unique and delicious!
Must try!

Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks
RM 58.00
If you are a lamb lover, you will definitely fall in love with this dish!
The lamb was really soft, you don't have to chew and chew and chew before you can swallow the lamb. It was really good when it topped with the sauce. The side dishes was sweet potato and roasted garlic puree is also one of the plus point in this dish as it was really smooth that I would want to order a whole bowl of only the puree! There were also braised portobello mushroom with goat feta cheese, preserved zucchini and torch ginger which made this dish rather perfect and complete.
Highly recommended!

Angus Beef Ribeye with Perigeaux Sauce
RM 128.00
There are Angus Beef promotion which running currently in 32 at The Mansion. You can select from Sirloin, Ribeye or Tenderloin, pricing start from RM85 ++ There are also 3 choices of sauce which are Black Pepper Sauce, Perigeaux Sauce or Mushroom Sauce. The Angus Beef is served with served with potato and thyme puree, together with mixed vegetables.

This is the manager and the chef, Mathijs Nanne that came from Holland, who prepared all our food. We had a little bit of chit chat with them and get to know more about all the dishes that they prepared.

Lastly, something that you must not miss when you come to 32 at The Mansion!
The nice desserts!

Gula Melaka Coconut Ice Cream
RM 6.00 per scoop, two scoops at RM 11.00
It was one of the best ice cream I have ever had in my life!
It tasted like chendol, just without the green chendol jelly. Not forget to mention that all their ice cream were prepared by the chef himself.
Highly recommended!

Sticky Toffee Pudding
RM 22.00
The whole toffee pudding will melt inside your mouth. It is served with macerated strawberries served and vanilla bean ice cream, which was also prepared by the chef himself. This is also one of the best dessert I have ever had. This is something that will make you come back for it!
Highly recommended!

Cake Trolley (Chocolate Swiss Almond Torte)
RM 14.00
This dessert was a piece of cake of the day, and it served with caramelized apple and guava, marinated raspberry and sour cream ice cream. It may be too sweet if it is just the cake, but it was perfect when you have it together with sour cream ice cream. Not forget to mention that the other side desserts was really unique and tasty.
Must try!

Sour Cream Ice Cream
RM 6.00 per scoop, two scoops for RM 11.00
This ice cream was also prepared by the chef himself. Sour cream ice cream is not so common in Penang too, this was my first time trying this flavour of ice cream too. It was sour but creamy, tasted rather special and it will be good if you don't really like your desserts to be too sweet.
Must try!

This is one of the best food reviews so far.
I will definitely go back to this 32 at The Mansion again for their food.
I really wish to try other desserts and main course as well. 
Do remember to bring your love ones with you.
Reminder: make early reservations before you go there
