Restoran Din Ikan Bakar (Din Grilled Fish Restaurant)-Penang

Malaysians in general cannot resist the lure of grilled dishes – items grilled over a wire-topped charcoal or sometimes even pieces of woods. Ardent grilled dishes fans will debate what sets one eatery outlets apart from the next: is it the marinade, the complementing sauces and gravies that go with the grilled items or the cook’s grilling skills and precise timing?
This eatery outlet is probably the best place to savour grilled dishes…..almost everything is grilled.

OUR VERDICT (6 STARS MAXIMUM)

SHAM: The Cow’s Tongue is Nik’s favourite. We normally have it take-away. I hardly go there to eat because of all the smoke and odour from the grill pits. I like their “Asam Pedas Keladi”, but it has only the Keladi stalks minus the yam.

FOOD : 5 STAR (GRILLED MEAT & COW’S TONGUE 6 STAR…BEST IN THE WORLD IN ITS CATEGORY)
AMBIENCE : 3 STAR
COMMENTS : EXPECT VERY LONG QUEUES DURING LUNCHTIME
PRICE : NOT CHEAP BUT WORTH THE EXPERIENCE
