Tree Bar @ G Hotel Penang

There are too many places to chill in Penang, but whenever you come to Gurney Plaza, it's been always those coffee house, or restaurants, and it is getting really boring.
Now G Hotel has launched another project called Tree Bar, which is just located next to G Cafe.
Tree Bar by G Hotel is a bar that serves imported beers, cocktails, juices, food and snacks that could become a great place for gathering and hangout.

If you were to walk out from Gurney Plaza towards the Alfresco area, you will be able to spot this Tree Bar
Not forget to mention that they are having special promotion of Buy 1 and get 2 FREE before 9:30pm, and Buy 1 get 1 FREE after 9:30pm, terms and conditions applied though.

Hoegaarden might be quite common in Penang, but Stella Artois and Lowenbrau is not what you can easily find in other bars or pubs.

This place is really cool, and very comfortable too

Connor's is not so common in Penang too.

There are also Bean seats too, which is very comfortable, and it is really under the big tree that located in between G Hotel and Gurney Plaza

Of course I'm not gonna order juices here right?
Stella Artois - RM 43.00++

Chloe ordered a Tequila Sunrise - RM 24.00++
It is without alcohol, so basically it is just sweet and refreshing.

This is my Tequila Sunrise, with alcohol of course. They are at the same price and of course mine tasted better, all because I'm quite an alcoholic!

They also serve several types of tidbits for their customers, kinda like this peanut tidbits that coated with some spices.

Other than beverages, there are also quite a range of food and snacks served by Tree Bar too.
Such as Deep Fried Calamari - RM 22.00 right below, which is one of the best finger food that goes with some chilled beers. What makes it so special is their chef's specialties dips.
Thousand Island, Thai Chilli Sauce and Avocado sauce(If i am not mistaken)

Golden Chicken Wings - RM 21.00
Served with Sweet chilli dip, kinda into the taste of the chicken wings, it is pretty nice even if you have it without the sauce, it was very crispy too!

Thai Beef Salad - RM 16.00
As you all know, I don't fancy beef at all, so I didn't try this salad, but I keep hearing other bloggers saying that this salad is so nice especially Chloe herself. Guess it must be real good.

Moroccan Spiced Lamb Skewer - RM 21.00
It comes with chickpea salad and eggplant caponata. I must really say that the lamb skewers are real good!
Juicy, tender and tasty as it was grilled with capsicum and onions, though I'm not so into capsicum, but it is good when you have it with the lamb!

Guacamole & Tortilla Chips - RM 15.00
I love the guacamole here because it is so smooth! But the Pico De Gallo (Something like salsa sauce) was really good too, I find it a bit costly for this 8 pieces of tortilla though.

Nicoise Salad - RM 16.00
Nicoise salad here served with Tuna slices, making it so special and delicious, what a great combination with some alcohol!

Battered Fish - RM 21.00
It comes with Tartar sauce and Wasabi sauce! What a surprised to taste wasabi sauce in here. It was crispy and fresh, not just the usual fish and chips that you were served out there. I find the portion was a bit small, but it could be the plate is too big though.

Char Siew Chicken Slider - RM 18.00
Just like a burger, but it is with Char Siew Chicken instead of the normal patty. Rather surprised to see Char Siew Chicken served in this way, but it was not bad and the patty was juicy and tender.

Fondue Madness - RM 25.00
You will get to choose 2 types of fondue, one is beef and another one is cheese dip, which is the one I had.
It is really good to have this bites together with some beers and cocktails though, I like it cheesy and creamy! 

Mezze with Pita Bread - RM 16.00
I guess the chef here really love to play with so many types of dips. This is served with hummus and baba ghanoush, both of them are rather new to me, but I find it quite special and it is just nice to dip with pita bread!

Smoked Salmon Roll - RM 28.00
One of the best dish of the night!
I really like the sauce that filled inside the smoked salmon, it was so creamy and good!
Thumbs up and highly recommended!

Surf & Turf Quesadilla - RM 32.00
What makes this dish so expensive?
Well if you were to hear that the fillings are grilled steak, lobster, mozzarella cheese, tomato & beef bacon bacon lardons with garlic olive aioli, do you still think that it is expensive?

Bucket of Chilled Shrimp - RM 25.00 (250gram) / RM 49.00 (500gram)
I think this is also one of the best bites of the night too, this is perfect to go with alcohol, but one thing troublesome is you have to remove the prawn shells.

Garlic Bread - RM 7.00
Chef's homemade Garlic Butter, must have it while it is still hot and crispy!

There are also burgers and hotdogs as main course, choices of breads, chips, patty and so on.
This is Chilling Dog - RM 18.00
Looks kinda good, and the portion is not small though, guess it would be good for one person's dinner.

I ordered Tree Bar Big Gun (Chicken Patty, Sundried Tomato Bun) - RM 22.00
I really like the sundried tomato that slipped inside the burger, and also the juicy patty they served. But too bad another type of fries which is Truffle Fries are sold out, cause I heard it is the best fries among the available choices.

Overall it was a great place to dine and also a good place to drink.
Now I have another place to have gathering with friends.
