PENANG | ChinaHouse
Penang 153, Beach St, Georgetown, 10300 George Town
On Friday, December 3, KL’s culinary rebel Gary Anwar of Ember Modern Bistro, will bring his multi-cultural version of modern Asian cuisine to Penang's heritage-chic China House.
Growing up in a mixed-race - Malay/ Pakistani/ Chinese - family, with deep roots in both kampong cooking and old-school vegetables like ulam raja and pucuk paku, Gary describes his cuisine as “simple, balanced, flavourful, textural and ingredient-driven” that “reminisces'' on his childhood.
Diners can expect to experience a taste of Gary’s unapologetic take on Malaysian cooking in one of Malaysia’s most unapologetically fun destination restaurants.
Think: ulam, plus bunga kantan as an ode to Penang, topped with a generous dose of avant-garde art.
CHINAHOUSE is a traditional compound of 3 heritage buildings, linked by an open air courtyard and converted into 14 spaces comprising shops, cafes, restaurant, galleries, live music and bakery.
