Penang Road Cafe

I decided to drop by Novena to check out this Penang Road Cafe. Heard that they serve very good Penang Char Kway Teow so I decided to try it for myself. I was browsing through their menu and noticed that they serve the typical Penang favourites such as the Hokkien Prawn Mee, Lor Bak, Assam Laksa and Char Kway Teow. I ordered the Char Kway Teow for myself and a Hokkien Prawn Mee for my wife that cost S$6.00 each respectively. For the Hokkien Prawn Mee they added sliced pork, bean sprouts, prawns and egg slices and garnished it with lots of spring onions. The soup base for the Hokkien Prawn Mee has a rich prawny taste but it's kindof sweet due to the prawn paste and brown sugar. I would prefer a rich soup base filled with prawn flavour that is cooked for long hours to bring out the taste. For the Char Kway Teow, they added lots of bean sprouts, cockles, prawns, eggs and chinese sausages. I find that the Kway Teow is not dry enough and a little oily but on a whole, the Kway Teow taste good especially with the chilli. If you have a strong craving for Penang food, you can check out this place to satisfy your craving.
