Malaysian restaurant Penang Affair has closed. I’m sure I ate there years ago, long before I started writing about Fitzroy. It didn’t impress me then and I never returned. I’ve walked past hundreds of times and it always looked mostly empty, so I can’t understand how it stayed open so long. In addition to its closure, it has evicted its upstairs tenant, Rust bar. This high profile corner property must be a desirable proposition for a new restaurant.
