What made Francis Western Food the ideal place to patron? Well, he was with the Western section of a 5-Star Hotel in Singapore before he moved back to Penang to be with his family. Moreover, his style of cooking and taste are totally different compared to any other normal Western food stalls around Penang. In fact, he is the only stall in Penang that provides fusion style of cooking combining many different herbs and cooked either as deep fried, sauté, grill, or baked. His love and personal touch in preparing his side dishes and salads are something that made him real proud. All his meals would come accompanied with pineapple salad, potato chicken ham salad, French fries, or baked potatoes and crunchy garlic bread.
I have personally tried almost 80% of all his food in the menu (more than 50 choices) and have never ever had any complaints. Everything in the menu has its unique taste. We had our dinner recently there and ordered the Chicken Cordon Bleu as well as the Baked Black Pepper Chicken. Both dishes cost us only RM17.50. One look at the photos and I can assure you that you would be thinking of another visit there.
Kedai Kopi Guan Hiang which housed the Western Food stall is just at the junction of Jalan Cantonment and Jalan Burmah in Pulau Tikus. Do also check out his special order during festive season as he would also specially prepare some rich moist Chocolate Cake, Mint Stuffed Turkey, etc and they are always the best around.
