WAO-Food- Penang trip 2
Hot Bowl White Curry Mee
58 Jalan Rangoon Georgetown 10400 Penang
8am – 3pm
What we ordered: White Curry Mee
Review: The original white soup base has a strong coconut taste and fragrant to it and has zero spiciness. The “shiok” part kicks in when the chili paste is being added into the soup and lo and behold, you get the entire flavourful and authentic bowl of Penang White Curry Mee.
Penang Rd Famous Teochew Chendul
Jalan Penang 10450 Pulau Pinang
What we ordered: Teochew Chendul
What we loved: The ice-cold bowl of Chendul with the brown sugar and having it along a bustling street!
Jit Seng Hong Kong Roasted Duck Rice @ Star Hotel
Address: 246, Lebuh Carnarvon, 10100 Penang, Malaysia.
Opening Hours: 12.00pm – 3.00pm (Closed Public Holidays)
What we ordered: Roasted duck and pork (char siew)
Review: The flavour and texture were good on the whole, but this is definitely not one of the best roasted duck and pork that we have tried so far.
乡下鱼头米粉 / Village Fishhead Beehoon
Address: 107-A, Pengkalan Weld, 10300, Georgetown, Penang.
Operates daily from 11.30am – 10pm. Closes on the 1st and 15th of the Chinese lunar month
What we ordered: Fish head bee hoon and frog leg soup and fried fish.
Review: We ordered what was recommended before we got ourselves a table and upon heading to our table, we noticed that most, if not all of the customers were having tom yam mee. Perhaps “when in Rome, do what the Romans do” stands truth for this eatery, as the dishes that we ordered tasted average. Unfortunately we had no more room for another bowl of Tom Yam soup. Do drop us a comment if you have tried the Tom Yam soup.
A little tip, based on the experience above. Reviews from food blog or articles are subjective. You might want to do a simple recee or “scan” through what the locals ordered before placing your order.
1 Gat Lebuh Macallum 10300 Georgetown
What we ordered: Smoked Duck with yuzu sauce. Beef burger
Review: Smoked duck was done to perfection and tasted lovely with the yuzu sauce. The beef burger tasted average. It could have been better if the meat was thicker.
China House / Beach Street Bakery
153 155 Beach Street – 183b Victoria Street Georgetown Penang
What we ordered: Lemon poppy seed cake
Review: Well it is definitely the closest we can get to have poppy legally! We were surprised by the find too and seriously it tasted quite good with the lemon and don’t worry too much about the poppy it tasted like “finer” chia seeds in a lemon butter cake.
Interesting facts about China House:
Take a walk through China House and you will be led to a beautiful outdoor café, Courtyard.
Explore on …
The canteen, another restaurant/cafe will greet you at the end of your exploration. The stretch of cafes or eateries starts from Victoria Street to Beach Street. While exploring, pop in through the rest of the interesting themed restaurants such as Reading Room, 14 Chairs, Vine & Single.
Head up the retro metal steps that leads to BON TON, a shop that sells handcrafted items.
