    The Sunday Dinner’s terrible. They haven’t a clue how to make a Yorkshire pudding and the beef is a rib eye sliced in half and tough as one of Switch’s old army boots

    Good for watching rugby and cricket though,if you don’t mind being surrounded by folk like seeking assylum
    The Straits Quay one in Penang was one of my reluctant Weds/Thurs night haunts, and then I'd shed a tear or two when I woke up the next morning and saw the bill.

    Crap, but the greasy pizzas were the drunkard's food after 8 pints.

    There's also one on Changkat, btw.

    They were fucking magic once the beer had taken over.

    I used to live (relatively) around the corner and it might have been easier just to go home for a Jimmy.

    Yeah it’s a few doors away. There’s another fish and chip shop now there too, well overpriced for chewy cod

    Just finding draft Guinness and Kilkenny was enough for this weary traveller. My Guinness and steak pie was lush.

    I like Bukit Bintang area in KL

    Ties Sq Mall, Low Yat rech malls and adjacent many international and local eateries
    My pick for teh Aussie steaks cannot get here, its right by the Apple store and my usual digs the dated Swiss Hotel known to all cabbies and a short hike from IMBI monorail or Bukit Bintang monorail

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ou...!4d101.7091727

    If in Penang the Indian food is superb at every price from street samosas to air con lux, in Little Indoa where teh Indians eat there are a few loud places with aircon or same food at E and O or Citiel at top dollar

    Bangsar or Brickfields great food if you haven't come to escape teh wobblies, while a bit sterile the Meridien adjacent to Sentral has good value lunch I think was 189RM a while back, drinks extra of xouse so neaer $90 with abottle of plonk

    I've only ever had snacks and sandwiches there, which were fine, but the breakfasts looked good and I do remember that they had proper sausages.

    I was there over the Christmas period watching the cricket and the previous owner had left (he wasn't well), but everything else seemed pretty much the same.

    To be honest, I would normally eat breakfast at home or go local, but I can't think of too many other options for a British style morning feed. The Magnificent Fish and Chips is good for later on in the day (edit: just seen they do a breakfast too, but have only ever had fish and chips there).

    They're obviously doing something right because they keep expanding and they get great reviews on the web. Personally, I was never a big fan of any of their places in Malaysia (I found them to be quite expensive), but they did have a good view of the marina in Penang.

    Havana on Changkat at the end of the night and/or seeing some of your mob head off to the Beach Club will certainly take care of a few of those vouchers.

    As it happened the Irish pub up the road from the Shangri La did good grub, decent beer and the footy (albeit till 4am). And the Thai Club opposite was a veritable cornucopia of South East Asian talent.

    Decidedly seedy in the early hours though.
