Dinner at Y Food Box Signature, Gurney Drive (Previously Known As Sea Brew)

I went to Sea Brew Y Food Box Signature, Gurney Drive at the end of April 2018 to have dinner. The restaurant used to be known as Sea Brew but has now been revamped after their renovation and is now known as Y Food Box Signature.

 

They have a lot of food and beverages choices for you to choose from. These are their menu selections. Click on the picture to enlarge it and view the menu.

They have a few branches in Perak, in Penang island and also at Butterworth.

After browsing through the menu and with recommendation from Mr. Francis Chang, who is a food consultant and one of the owners of Y Food Box Signature, the food order was made. They call it “studying the menu” because we need to go through each item in the menu and sometimes it takes quite long. If studying the menu requires remembering each item, then I’m out. I doubt I will remember every single item in the menu especially if it’s such a long list of items. Those working in this industry who can remember all their venue’s food items have such amazing memory skills.

 

I ordered the Winter Melon Longan drink. I was told they cooked this on their own, so it’s worth a try.

For dinner, I had rice with stir-fried vegetables, Foo Yoong omelette and a claypot meat dish. I like their rice because it was well-cooked and has this slight stickiness to it, a bit like Japanese rice. Their vegetable and egg dish was tasty.

The meat dish was supposed to be chicken but it was served as pork instead.  The chicken turned into piggy in the process of cooking it. The sauce was a bit too salty for me.  It could be because I don’t normally eat very salty food on a daily basis and I grew up with my Mummy cooking less salty, less oily, almost no sugar and non-spicy food as our daily staple diet. This claypot meat dish would be ideal for those who are used to taking saltier kind of dishes. I requested for them not to put chilli in the dish and they didn’t, so that was great.

The restaurant has a few different settings and furnitures for you to choose your choice of seating. They have a wine room where they store their wine in. I wouldn’t call it a wine cellar as it’s more of an enclosure, like in a room with air-conditionng. I love that place because it’s cooling with cold air, it has a chandelier, it has alcohol in there and best of all, it’s very quiet. So quiet that no outside sound can penetrate the room and you can hear the wind blow from the air-conditioning.

They have a very different kind of decoration at their place as well. Like these pool of lamp shades at their counter facing the entrance of the restaurant.

If you’re looking for some home-cooked style dishes with rice or if you’re looking for a place to chill with some wine, you would want to visit this restaurant. Their location at Gurney Drive makes it pretty easily accessible.
