Today is a very special day - lots of newly wed couples, and it's no different for shops as several new shops celebrate their GRAND OPENING on this day. Today alone, I was invited to 3 different restaurants to attend their grand opening. Among the most interesting invites I received was from the Fullhouse Lifestyle Store & Cafe. What's Fullhouse, you ask? It's the latest addition in Penang Times Square - a beautiful and cozy theme restaurant, and it's HUGE. Even before the grand opening, Penang was abuzz with talk about Fullhouse, and I was told that the food is comparable, if not better, than the food at Delicious.
So I waited (& took many peeks at the boarded up shoplot where Fullhouse would be, each time I was at Times Square) for the day when Fullhouse would finally open its doors. Finally the day has arrived - Fullhouse opened its doors on a very special day, 11-11-11.
Somehow, to call it a restaurant is almost wrong - the word restaurant doesn't explain Fullhouse in all its glory. Fullhouse not just a restaurant, there are cute items for sale as well, clothing & fashion, PA system hall and (gasp) even a hair salon. Fullhouse even has wedding services available.
Let me take you on a tour through Fullhouse :)
|Very impressive main entry. Love the color theme of WHITE with GREEN. The Fullhouse signboard is multicolor, I love red so I ended up taking several pictures in order to get the red color just right :)|
|Hmm, everything is ready for a walk in wedding :)|
|The lovely Fullhouse Mini, almost everyone took a picture with this car.|
|A cute (huge~) Tiffany statue welcomes you into Fullhouse. If Fullhouse were to charge RM1 for each person who took a picture with her, they would have a fortune.|
|Clockwise: 1- See how big Tiffany is? 2- There's even a traditional trishaw as deco. 3- The black sofas certainly stand out in contrast to all the white in the restaurant. 4- View from the top..|
|Christmas is coming - some great gift ideas..|
|If you love cute things, there is a good selection available for sale in Fullhouse. I am told that a special department handles the sourcing and procurement of all these cute items.|

|Upper floor seating is close by the fashion & clothing display.|
|Did anything catch your eye?|
|Made in Korea? There's a fair selection of clothing available for you to get in a little bit of shopping while waiting for your meal to arrive.|
|For me, this was the biggest surprise - Fullhouse even has a hair salon! It is headed by The School Hair Academy.|
|Various posters you can find throughout the cafe.|
|Don't they look cute?|
|A big hall that can cater for a group of one hundred, located on the upper floor.|
|The passage to the toilet - the most important facility in any cafe :P|
|Cute little take away boxes.|
|Petit four selection, for your set lunch.|
|Left to right: 1- A drink called Tiramisu + magic ball (RM9.90). I didn't try the drink, but my friend told me that it's pretty good. 2- Honeydew Milk Shake (RM7.90).|
|Over Roasted Chicken Parcel (RM22.90). This juicy roasted chicken was stuffed with mushrooms, sauteed daikon and Chinese herbs.|
|Creme Brulee (RM10.90). This was very good!|
|Tiramisu (RM14.90). Mascorpone cheese and sponge fingers dipped in expresso, topped with cocoa powder, do I need to say more?|
|Chocolate Brownie (RM11.90). This homemade chocolate brownie is topped with rich chocolate sauce & a tuile. A cream puff balances delicately on the side of the brownie. The cake tasted like sat keh mah to me cause of the peanut used.|
