Granny's Cottage 外婆家 is a restaurant in Gurney Plaza, Penang. It specialises in local cuisine, "the way Granny used to make". The restaurant first opened in 2012. Business was so good that it expanded a couple of years later to include the adjacent shoplot. Although the annex is called Tummy Yummy, it is in fact the same restaurant as Granny's Cottage next door.

Although Granny's Cottage offers set meals, the best way to enjoy its food is to order dishes à la carte. My wife and I paid a visit to Granny's Cottage on 28 April, 2017. We were there at the invitation of Mr Chin, who operates the restaurant with his family. It was a great pleasure for us to sit down with Chin, get to know him, and find out how the restaurant got started. The very affable Chin told us how the restaurant got started, and his siblings were also involved in cooking the various items.

To give us a taste of what Granny's Cottage has to offer, Chin ordered the dishes from the menu, most of which are the restaurant's signature dishes. They include Granny's Special Pork Trotter, Pork Trotter with Vinegar, Kapitan Curry Chicken, Jiu Hu Char, Special Sambal Petai with Prawns and the Bitter Gourd Fried Rice. Here's each item we tried.

I have to say, everything was absolutely delicious. So much so that I had two helpings of rice, to Chin's delight. I told him I genuinely love the food which go very well with hot white rice. And I really wouldn't mind coming back to Granny's Cottage over and over to try other items. I really cannot find any fault with the dishes. If pressed, my own comment is that the Jiu Hu Char is coarser than what I get at home, but then, I am being deliberately nitpicky.

My wife and I enjoyed our meal very much, and hope that in future, Chin might invite us back! Can't wait for that.
