If you ever find yourself in Penang, Malaysia, make sure you check out the restaurants listed below - they may yet make your lackluster Malaysian tour more interesting.

1. Five27

This restaurant is the new in-thing among the upwardly mobile young professionals. It gives you a Nordic feeling with the cuisines from as far away as Sweden being on the menu. The cocktails served here are as creative as the dishes. The restaurant is located at Straits Quay.

2. Kaffa PIA

Are you an American who misses home? Well, this restaurant will definitely remind you of home with its delicious hamburgers, sandwiches, and pasta. It is strategically located in Penang Airport. For those that want to eat more healthy food, try the Spicy Aglio Oliu or Oriental Chicken Pasta or Grill Salmon and Foot Long Sausage which are also served at the restaurant.

3. Feringgi Grill

Located on the mezzanine floor of Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa Penang, this restaurant gives its customers some breathtaking views as well as eclectic cuisines. Trust me; the Brik Pastry Cannelloni which is made of savory goats curd stuffed into pastry and served on a sweet cherry tomato bed is nothing like you have tasted before.

4. Soul Kitchen

Just as the name suggests, this restaurant tries to keep its meals fresh, healthy and simple. The restaurant prides itself in making some extra ordinary homemade Italian cuisines and playing some great music. It is the kind of place you go after a long day at work.

5. Karaikudi Restaurant

For some Indian cuisines, Karaikudi is the place to be. With signature Indian dishes such as mutton chukka varuval (mutton cooked with onions, spices and curry leaves), Prawn malai curry (prawns with cashew nuts and cream) and the vegetarian meal set; this restaurant is the kind of place you go to try out something different.

Penang is said to be the dining capital of the east. Visit the restaurant listed above and you will concur with this conclusion too.
