TOP97 Western & Italian Restaurant @ Jalan Gottlieb, Penang

Formerly known as Little Cottage, the notable restaurant beside Hotel Waterfall has transformed into TOP97 Western & Italian Restaurant, while upholding the original design of the restaurant.

The name Little Cottage was such a reminiscence for both me and Shirleen. It was our first opulent meal after we first know each other, whereby chances of such meal was rare back dated then. Though the location setting was at Jalan Burmah's branch, the name Little Cottage was still well engraved in our history, thus making the return here much nostalgic.

The menu here centering on Western and Italian cuisine, though the chef has induced a different finishing style to all the dishes.

Many thanks to TOP97 Western & Italian Restaurant for hosting us.

TOP 97 has since closed down.

The House Salad - Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad has been reinvented by the chef by introducing cucumbers into the salad. The finishing of coconut oil makes it quite a delicacy to start for the evening.

We are surprised to find out they serve soup pasta, not a very common item on a restaurant menu. This Cioppino E Spaghetti is particularly made for seafood fanatics, with seabass, clams and fresh prawns altogether on a bowl of spaghetti noodles.

Again, another soup spaghetti - Zuppa Di Pollo E Spaghetti is for patrons who may opt for choices other than seafood. The bowl of spaghetti is topped with shredded chicken, and somehow, we felt it was alike Chinese noodles - lam mee.

 A typical menu on a Western restaurant, Chicken Burger is here as well, catering for the needs and appetite of the majority. We thought it was done well.

The Braised Lamb Shank here is surprisingly good. The lamb was braised to soft and tender texture, and carried an distinctive yet pleasant lamb smell. It was served with tagine sauce, prepared using the North African's culinary method, alongside with Paella rice.

The most yearned Italian thin crust pizza is here - Garlic Chicken Pizza topped with mayonnaise and shredded cheese.

The typical chicken chop in western restaurant menu has been reinvented, becoming Grilled Chicken Chop & Jumbo Sausage. It was a creative combination of chicken chop and jumbo sausage, and their homemade pumpkin mash is certainly a choice of pick if it ever been offered as another side dish.

We thought the dessert - Pina Colada Creme Brulee is definitely an art of creative food. The creme brulee is made using coconut milk & pineapple juice, which is surprisingly a good combination as it offers a less sweetened version of version compared to conventional creme brulee. Hard caramel topping is then replaced with caramelized pineapples and shredded coconut, making it a healthier version of dessert.

The homemade coconut cream deserves an applause as well. According to the chef, the coconuts were handpicked fresh from the market themselves to ensure the topnotch quality is ever presented in this art of dessert.
