If you have a plan to dine out and enjoy quality food without haemorrhaging your wallet, then Wembley Cafe is an excellent choice. Led by experienced Executive Chef Peter Chan, whom was a president of Penang Chef Association, the cafe at the 2nd of Wembley Hotel has recently launched a new Ala Carte Menu to satiate your hunger. Regardless of you being a business traveler or having a rendezvous with your friends, the food in Wembley Cafe with strong focus of healthy dishes without compromising the taste leave you in a conundrum on what to choose from.

For a simple yet satisfying meal, then Tom Yam Fried Rice (RM 28) prepared by Wembley Cafe is definitely a hit. It is spicy, savoury, rich and has a slight tartness with wonderful aroma filling the air once the plate of fried rice is being served to our table. We also enjoyed the overall presentation of the fried rice, as it comes with chicken, prawns, pineapples cubes and egg.

There are many healthy yet delicious Western inspired dishes available on the menu, and today we will be sharing 3 of it - Grilled Salmon Fillet (RM 48), Soft Shell Crab Charcoal Burger (RM 30) and Smoked Duck Carbonara (RM 32).

Grilled Salmon Fillet is served at its best form, flaky on the skin with a moist middle that will melt in your mouth. It is served along with mashed potatoes, tomatoes and vegetables of the day to give additional structure to the salmon. Drizzle some lemon to give it a zest or add the special soy sauce for a more solid taste.

Otherwise, the Soft Shell Crab Charcoal Burger is a hit too. Traditionally, the deep fried soft shell crab will give out a lot of greasiness due to deep frying process but this is not the case here. It is nicely fried with crispy texture but no presence of oil residues can be detected. The plate is served along with a generous quantity of greens and fries at the same time. 

Another great choice will be Smoked Duck Carbonara. The plates exudes aroma combined from both the smoked duck and cream from the spaghetti. Overall taste is rich yet not surfeiting, and it is reasonably priced at RM 32 as well, on par or even cheaper than some of the price you get at high end cafes.

Vietnamese Sandwich (RM 25)

If you prefer a lighter choice, then go for the sandwich menu that has Salmon Stack Sandwich (RM 37) or Vietnamese Sandwich (RM 25). The former uses ciabatta bread and has smoked salmon, avocado and poached egg to yield a nutritional balanced diet, where as the latter uses baguette sandwiching chicken slices and pickled vegetables, then topped with parsley for a more Asian taste.

Chef Peter also exercised his prowess in preparing local Chinese cuisine. Among the local specialties he crafted included Steamed Radish Cakes (RM 14), Braised Shanghainese Duck (29) and Double Boiled Chicken Soup with Ginseng Roots (RM 25).

We thought the Steamed Radish Cakes are unique as it is topped with superior soy sauce, on top of the chili crisp and spring onion. The portion is humongous too, thus it is best shared among few people.

For those business travelers who are having a hectic time in Penang, then get yourself nourished with the Double Boiled Chicken Soup with Ginseng Roots which offers good nutritional value on top of the aromatic scent. The braised Shanghainese Duck on the other hand was so smooth in the texture with a light finishing sauce to give it a sleek sensation.
