A cosy kopitiam that specialises in Penang food & Nyonya recipes.
Char kuey teow. We couldn't resist ordering this, but it turned out to be mediocre, with rather puny cockles. Fell a bit short of the essential 'wok hei.'
The side dishes that come with rice seem to be a better bet. We kinda liked the Chien Chuan Egg, even though the spicy-sour gravy isn't something we generally go for.
Fried "rempah" fish. Tasted surprisingly fresh, but the sambal stuffing could have been more flavourful; methinks my grandmother used to make a better version.
Minced chicken with soft-boiled potatoes. Comfort foodish; everything on this platter tasted homemade and nourishingly wholesome.
Sambal dried prawns. Flavourful and not too spicy, with a nice, creamy texture.
Piping-hot winter melon soup. One of our favorite broths, perfectly prepared.
