Penang Seafood Restaurant Review
Penang Seafood Restaurant serves a variety of Chinese food and not just Penang’s famous food. The char kway teow lacks the wok hey flavor and it was a tad bit salty. Asam Laksa flavors and texture were on point but I would prefer using a thicker noodle. The food here overall was on the saltier and rich flavors side. So for those who crave a strong Penang taste, this is the place for you.
Things I like
- Authentic ingredients
- Rich flavors
- Better Wok Hey on the Char Kway Teow
- Asam Laksa Noodle to be thicker
- Flavor of Cendol & serving Portion
- Aiyu Jelly need more sourness
Penang Seafood Restaurant Food & Price
Penang Seafood Restaurant serves a variety of Chinese food and not just Penang’s famous food. However, we specifically came here to try their Penang food. To start, we ordered their Asam Laksa ($6.80) which has a nice balance of sour, sweet and spicy, topped with onions, cucumbers, pineapple and vegetables.
The soup was balance with the minced fish to provide a flavorfully and good texture to the soup. However, the noodle used was on the thinner side rather than a thicker version.
Next, we ordered their small portion char kway teow ($7). It comes with two prawns, Chinese sausage, beansprout, lime, chives, egg and pork lard.
The combination of flavors was on the richer side which I prefer as the taste back in Malaysia are made this way. However, the rice noodle was too narrow and the dish lack the “Wok Hey” flavor.
In addition to all the Penang food we tried, I was craving some salted egg flavor. Thus, we ordered their small portion of salted egg chicken ($14). The price is on the higher side, but the intensity of the salted egg was very balanced. I would have preferred if the chicken was fried a little more to give it that additional crunchy bite.
For dessert, we ordered their Aiyu Jelly ($4.50). This jelly combine with the sourness is a great way to balance the savory food we just had. It would be great if they could be a little sourer rather than sweet.
In addition to the Aiyu Jelly, we ordered their Cendol ($3.00). It comes with shaved ice mixed with beans, corn and jelly. I would have preferred more coconut flavor and shave ice but overall, it was a good dessert to end the night.
Penang Seafood Restaurant Service
