    We were there for a weekday lunch amidst the hot afternoon sun and the place was crowded to the brim with many strangers sharing tables (a pretty sight though). The restaurant is not big and somehow a little run down (old school look means great food) and we were glad. Looks like its pretty popular and while the super efficient uncle served us our own private table for 4, we gladly accepted it though the table looked grimly greasy but the air-conditioning is what we would trade for, otherwise the clean alfresco tables under the hot sun.

    There are loads of selections on the menu with many seafood cooked in 101 ways, we decided upon some street food Penang Style hoping to awaken the memories of our long ago vacation there. There were great many choices like prawn noodles, fried rice and even crabs was available yet i;ve chosen assam laksa and fried kway teow as i feel that they best represents my impression of Penang.

    The Penang Assam Laksa ($4.80) arrived in a pretty small bowl with plenty of tasty condiments that were colourful with good blending of taste. Love the tangy taste and I must say its pretty spicy. I even finished the soup (claps for the one who takes ketchup instead of chilli sauce at McDonalds) because it was almost all filled with specks of fish meat. I must say this is a must try, super well executed and very yummy.

    The Penang Fried Kway Teow ($7.50) for a medium portion was a tad too salty but fragrant and super yummy. Generous portion and the kway teow was soft, springy and looked slimmer then usual. We suspected that the chef might have forgotten and double dosed the salt, yet we still polished it off within minutes of it being served....

    Mixed Honey Lime ($2.00) is one good drink to wash down everything with, perks up the tastebuds and refreshes the breath.... Time to go back to work.....

    Location: 4/5 (Next to Aljunied MRT) Price: 3/5 (a tad pricy) Service: 3.5/5 (Uncle is nice, some staffs has a face so long it hits the ground, but when we are blinded by yummy food, we tend to forgive on service) Food: 4/5 (really yummy though it can't fight with those in Penang, yet its good enough) Environment: 3/5

    Will I return: Yes Will I bring friends: YES

      This eating place has advertised their food regularly in Straits Times Classified Section. What caught our eyes are Penang food which was not easy to find nowadays unless you do some food research.

      We were there about 8pm on weekday night and were surprised to find many people waiting for their tables. The place was packed full house and we were quite worried about waiting time.

      The staff were efficient in clearing the tables and we didnt wait long to be served. Upon flipping their menu, we found interesting items like Fermented Pork Belly, Neptune Fish Maw, Assam Fish Head and Penang Assam Laksa under their Chef's Recommendation section.

      Every food item looked good and we were spoilt for choice. Their senior staff noticed our indecisive discussion and walked over to introduce some of their specialities.

      Fried Mee Hoon - Such a simple and common dish. But when it was served, it look burnt. After tasting the first bite, it was not that bitter. It was crispy on the burnt areas but the main portion remained moist. The noodle was covered mostly with eggs, vegetables and sizeable prawns.

      Salted Egg Sotong - We were worried whether the sotong (squids) would become harden as this dish needed the right balance of fire and the chef's skill. It turned out very well. The sotong remained soft and was well coated with the crispy flour. The salted egg mixture was also not excessively used.

      In conclusion, we had a good meal and best of all, the prices are affordable. We will definitely be back to try the rest of their food.
