Plan B freshly minted menu launching starting 14th April 2016

Plan B by the BIG group had established themselves well in Gurney Paragon and Queensbay Mall Penang and recently decided to rollover their menu. Perhaps, when plan A works well, the other 25 cool alphabets might work even better! We were then for their new menu launching at Queensbay Mall branch on 13th April 2016, and the new menu will take place effectively 14th March 2016.

Thanks to Penang renowned blogger Jazz for inviting us to tag along and Plan B for hosting us that night. 


The entire restaurant was earmarked for the new menu launching function and we had the opportunity to sample a few dishes on their freshly minted menu - Skin on fries with dips (Appetizer), four main dishes - Kristy's krunchy kale salad, Buttermilk fried chicken, zucchini spaghettini and salmon rice bowl, and four desserts - Jaffa cake, Springfield doughnuts, black forest pavlova and Cham Affogato. On top of that, there were 3 new drinks - Elderflower Mint Lemonade, passionfruit iced tea and iced chocolate.

Perhaps you were wondering how peculiar could a bowl of fries go and how come it was featured as a treat to the guests at that night. Well, the secret was unveiled and it lies in the dipping sauce. There were 3 dipping sauce provided, namely salted egg, Singapore chili and lime mayonnaise. We were particularly impressed with the Singapore chili as it brings the essence of the famous Singapore Chilli Crab.

Next come on the serving table was Kristy's krunchy kale salad. The kale was scooped with pieces of Mamee Monster Noodle Snack, giving it the crunchy properties as exclaimed on the dish's name. A hint of fragrance was contributed by hazelnuts and peanut dressings topping the salad.

We were delighted to savour this buttermilk fried chicken. The fried chicken was sandwiched between a piece of waffle and a bunch of coleslaw on top, giving a balance of fibers and carbohydrate to this protein and fat rich diet. The chicken was well fried, exhibiting a crispy outer skin and a tender soft meat which excessive mastication is not required.

Zucchini Spaghettini is well suited for any person pursuing a healthy lifestyle. It does not have any creamy or cheesy based sauce but the taste mostly derived from the Parmesan, garlic confit and slices of zucchini. The spaghettini is cooked to al dente, and please add the lime if you prefer to have a kick of tangy sensation.

The combination of colour made the salmon rice bowl attractive. This is true as studies have proven that taste is associated with the colour as part of sensory evaluation. A huge piece of salmon is the attention of the dish, with its out layer fried while the flesh in the center part still retained its rawness. Douse the dish with chilli soy dressing provided to enhance the taste. The dish could be better if the rice served was not soggy.

The desserts appear to be average for us but it would be appealing for those who will have a special affection toward the sweet taste. We were served Jaffa cakeSpringfield doughnuts and black forest pavlova. The crystalline sugar particles were clearly seen at the outer layer of pavlova but the whipped cream filling was fine actually. Children would definitely attracted by all these desserts.

Their cham affogato has underwent a revamp as well with their vanilla ice cream has been replaced with teh-tarik ice cream. Beware of the thick espresso as it might give you a sleepless night!

Overall, we feel the new menu by Plan B has been localised to the taste of Malaysians, featuring more local dish fusion with essence from foreign cuisine. The dishes served to us on that night is more skewed to the healthier side as well except the desserts.
