Penang Seafood Restaurant

A friend strongly recommended me to check out this Penang Seafood Restaurant at Geylang. When I was there, I noticed many people waiting for a table. The whole place was very crowded. I also noticed that the stall has won some awards by the various food variety channels including Makansutra. Here's what I ordered:

- Penang Fried Kway Teow

The Penang Fried Kway Teow was tasty and it tastes very similar to the one in Penang. It consists of ingredients like prawns, bits of lard, bean sprouts, chinese sausages, cockles and eggs. The bits of lard that was added in the Fried Kway Teow kind of exploded in my mouth when I chewed it.

- Small Prawn Bee Hoon

The Small Prawn Bee Hoon is tasty and the soup has a rich prawny taste that goes well with the bee hoon. I'm not a prawn lover but these small prawns was crunchy and the texture is wholesome. It's like eating dried shrimps. You can also find ingredients like kang kong, bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, sliced pork and prawns. This Small Prawn Bee Hoon is one of the better ones I have tasted. 

- Assam Laksa

The Assam Laksa is absolutely awesome. The gravy is thick and richly filled with the goodness from the kampong fish that was used. This dish is an appetiser booster, the Assam Laksa has ingredients like onions, pineapples cubes, cucumber strips and not forgetting the chunks of fish meat. You can actually taste the fish meat unlike other Assam Laksa that I have tasted. This Assam Laksa is comparable to the one in Penang and it is highly recommended. This is one dish you cannot miss if you visit this restaurant.
- Crispy Tofu
The Crispy Tofu is pretty all right, it is crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. The tofu is mixed with fish meat and the combination is good. Take note that this dish is enough for about 3 to 4 person.

- Baby Spinach Soup

The Baby Spinach Soup was delicious and the soup base was very thick, There are also eggs, salted eggs, century eggs, wolfberries and small bits of minced meat in the dish. On top of these, they added some crispy Ikan bilis on top making the texture even better when you chew it.

- Shrimp Paste Chicken
The Shrimp Paste Chicken was tasty and very crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Overall, I find that the food is good and definitely one of the better Penang Food around. You must try it if you are around the area.
Rating: 8.5/10 (Good, Must Try)
