Authentic food – Restaurant Hailanese Delights @ Hotel 1926, Penang

by Taufulou
Being a Hailanese myself, I actually have not really tried how this traditional cuisine taste like except the very famous and located most of the coffee shop the Hainanese Chicken Rice not until Lingzie and CK introduce us this Restaurant Hailanese Delights  newly open restaurant at Hotel 1926 which is located at the very famous Green House Coffee shop.

Hailanese Food Delight

But this newly open restaurant does not only offer authentic Hainanese food but also a cross over with western also which turns out that there are a few of their signature item.

 

Hailanese Food Delight (3)

Lets kick start off with the very authentic first dish which is ‘Hainanes Mushroom Soup’. As I heard the name I was like ‘WHAT’? puzzle in my head that is this consider authentic dish? It’s a clear soup style (which I thought the creamy soup or Campbell soup) as in the soup base is cook with chicken gizzard, mushroom, and some veggie ended up with ‘Tang Hoon’.

The soup base turns out wonderfully flavorful as I have not taste before, a bit of the gizzard taste yet chopped mushroom did not over power the soup. RM 12 for small and can serve for 4 person.

‘Braised Lamb with Lady’s Finger’ carefully cooks and stew of the New Zealand lamb that cooks till very juicy and tender. The gravy is just as good if you eat it with rice. RM18 If you are a lamb lover, this is a dish you must try.

‘Inche Kabin (Deep Fried Marinated Chicken)’ is deep fried till crispy on the skin and soft on the inside. RM15

Hailanese Food Delight (6)

‘Choon Piah (Hainanese Spring Roll)’ as I get to know that its different from Popiah. As I know the way the prepare, skin and ingredient used is different yet when it was deep fried out, the outer layer crispiness is different too but when diff with their very own homemade sauce its totally thumbs up.

‘Chicken Curry Kapitan’ is a bit different from all the curry I have eaten before. The spices taste is different not really spicy yet its fragrant and is cook till dry. RM12

Another dish which is different And abit of western style which is ‘Macaroni Pie’ . I did not know this is also consider one of the Hainanese food but to me is more like a bit modern dish. Perfectly baked till the crust is a bit soft and crispy on the top yet when the fork is poke down to the bottom the aroma just flew out and make us very hungry. The macaroni is soft, cook till flavorful with chicken, button mushroom and carrot. RM 25

Next is the ‘Chicken Pie’ RM 25 as its about the same with pie but I prefer this more. We ended up having 2.

Hailanese Food Delight (11)

This is the dish that is very famous among the local crowd or among all Hainanese people which is the very traditional ‘Hainanese Chicken Rice’. The chicken is steam and cooks till the meat is juicy and soft then mixed with their very own style of soy sauce make it very flavorful. If you dip with their homemade ginger and chili sauce taste better. RM10

‘Fried Koay Teow’ I just had taste better ones before.

Hailanese Food Delight (13)

If you are a coffee lover, their ‘Black Coffee’ taste good too, brew aromatically.

It’s a great exposure to Hainanese authentic food. If you would want to taste something different you can look for this restaurant.

I see a small mistake in your heading, it should be HAINANESE and not HAILANESE,
other than that, it is an enjoying article.

had a really bad experience there today. got in and was told to sit in lobby to wait for a table. sat down for 30minutes and then notice that other new people are just being seated while i’m still waiting. i even walked in to ask again and notice that there is an empty table but again was told to wait. the bossman even ushered my mom to another table where there are already people sitting. then he goes to clean up the store area to ask us to sit there. what kind of hospitality is this?

getting this kind of service, there is a cantonese saying that goes… “Sek loong yoke thoh moh mei er” – loosely translated to, “Eat dragon meat also no taste!”. pls buck up and do stop blaming the immigration officers for capturing ur workforce. get legal workers!!!!
