Having opened its doors since 21 March 2014, The Royale Bintang Penang celebrates its 3-year anniversary this month. This 4-star hotel at Weld Quay is strategically located in the heart of George Town's heritage district. Today's visit to The Royale Bintang is for the Friday Night Poolside BBQ, which I first covered last year.

Fish fillets are coated with batter and then deep-fried so that they become crispy.
Nyonya kuih. Pudding, mousse and jelly also serve to satisfy one's sugar craving.
sweet dessert made from ripe bananas and sago pearls in milky syrup. However, I feel that the sweetness level of this dessert should be toned down.
