Oz Restaurant, Penang

My mother's birthday falls on 13th February every year and this time round it is a Saturday! We went to Elit Avenue, a relatively new shop lot at Bayan Lepas, which is my first time. we drove round the squarish avenue and saw about 20 plus cafes.

Finally I laid eyes on Oz with its prominent Australian styled art outside and when we walked closer, I was drawn by the super cheap price of only RM 15.50 for the set lunch (any choice of main meals) with a free drinks. The RM 25.50 sets consists of main dish, drink, mushroom soup and a dessert of either Chocolate Brownie or Puff with Chocolate Ice-cream. Each of the main item comes with non-mayonaise overloaded coleslaw, greens, original roasted potato wedges instead of the frozen ones.

Many varieties 

 Mushroom soup 

Fruit Punch 

The fruit punch is quite special with bananas, pear and also dragonfruit. Talking about creativity!

Quarter Chicken with Mango Gravy, Potatoes and Salad 

The chicken is roasted till very tender, soft and juicy. The sauce is superb as it is saucy, with a mix of sourish taste from the mango.

Queensland Pork Schnitzel with Pineapple Chilli Mayonaise, Potatoes and Salad 

This is one big piece of pork deep fried with breadcrumbs. The sauce is simply amazing.

Fish Italiano with Tomatoes and Herbs 

This is steamed dory fish with lot of tomato and herb sauce. The fish lacks the natural sweetness of fish probably because they threw away the first steamed juices. I do not know why chefs like to do that.

Since it was mum's birthday, I requested that the Warm Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ice-Cream be served together with a small candle. The owner went out of the way to even play a "Happy Birthday Mummy" song. Mum was all smiles when the song was played. I gave them some tips, for the kind thoughts. Definitely a good place for a family or friend gathering.

Cream Puff with Chocolate Sauce and Chocolate Ice-Cream 

I guess the owner likes chocolate a lot because people rarely serve chocolate ice-cream for this and of course this is to my delight.

The Surprise Birthday Cake and Song by Restaurant and the Birthday Lady is all Smiles

 We can't get enough of Australian food as Perth had mostly Asian food when we went there
