2nd Penang Flogger Gathering

17 10 2008


A delayed post from the 2nd Penang Flogger gathering at Edelweiss Cafe! (Sorry to all who were expecting this post like.. um almost 3 weeks ago >.<) We have to thank Lingzie for making the event happen. Also to the other sponsors of goodies – CK Lam, Criz Lai (lucky draw) and Gill & Jason :) It was truly a night centered on food and mingling among bloggers, getting to know each other at a more personal level. The best moment is when everyone started clicking away their camera when a plate arrives at a table!

Edelweiss signs


iced lemon tea
Refreshing iced lemon tea.. much needed to quench our thirst after chit-chatting with all the bloggers :P

pumkin orange soup


Then comes our appetiser, pumpkin orange soup with garlic bread and toasted benggali bread with onion and cheese. The soup has a pretty thick consistency topped off with a swirl of cream and dried parsley(?). It was a nice starter with the fragrant toasts, though I wish the soup had at least a hint of orange.


The first dish to arrive at Nigel’s table and needless to say, all the floggers converge to take snapshots!

bbq ribs #1

bbq ribs #2

BBQ pork ribs with sides of french fries and garden salad. The sweet bbq smell really made me drool that time and I was really hungry… The serving portion is also very generous.

gammon ham

Gammon ham served with mash potato, salad and onion gravy :D~

roast leg of lamb #1

roast leg of lamb #2

I had the roast leg of lamb served with mashed potato and salad which comes with brown gravy and mint sauce. ahh what can I say. It tastes delicious ^.^ Cooked perfectly and the meat was tender. I liked it better with the brown sauce.

pork belly

Smoked pork belly with mashed potato and salad on the side. I think this is the raved and must have dish at Edelweiss. The smoked flavour is intense, so if you are put off by the fat… close your eyes and try it for your tastebud to remember :P

bill tray

The restaurant is also nicely decorated with interesting trinkets and antiques. This looks like a bill tray. Complete with mini lamp post. So you don’t misread your bill! How thoughtful.

fondue pots

Cheese fondue pots! I wanna try cheese fondue!


First aid Swiss flag lamp.


Lol… Boy, do they eat a lot last time! I forgot to count how many levels are the tiffins.

Toilet made attractive.

apple pies

After the break and some photo taking session, it’s dessert time! The waitress had to tell us to sit down because we were like excited little kids who were everywhere.

apple pie

Apple flan with vanilla ice-cream. Yummy! There were many pieces of sliced apple which lends a nice texture and it is not too sweet. Together with the cold ice-cream it was a perfect end to the meal.


Well, actually double good end to the meal. We also receive a delicious brownies each from the talented Ah Shui!

pineapple tart

Make that triple good end! Tasty tarts wtih strawberry and pineapple jam in a heart shaped container from CK Lam. Thank you!
