Penang Grill Restaurant Review

: Penang Grill is a refreshing alternative to the haute eateries you typically find in this area. With its subdued lighting, dark wicker furniture and palm fronds, the interior recalls the parlor of some French-Indochine plantation house --- a perfect setting for sampling the Chinese-tinged Southeast Asian menu. Whet your appetite with a seaweed salad with mango. Then try the Thai seafood casserole brimming with mixed seafood in curry for a taste of traditional Thai spice. Sautéed basil beef, consisting of thinly sliced beef, Thai basil and watercress in a tangy ginger sauce, is fragrant and tender. For a touch of zest and a kick to liven up the senses, opt for the spicy mango sauce with chicken, pork, tofu, beef, squid, scallops or prawns. Chinese-inspired entrées like the wok-glazed ginger chicken and shrimp, and the Szechuan peppercorn duo, are authentic in both preparation and flavor, utilizing fresh ingredients. If you are looking for something simple but substantial and fulfilling, opt for one of the big bowl noodles ranging from spicy to mild. Selections like tom yam chicken angel hair noodle soup and Szechuan pork udon soup come brimming with nourishing broth, meats and vegetables.
