Just found these pictures back and nearly forgot about it. Wok café seems to be quite famous and been visited by a lot of bloggers, that created my curiosity on their food quality, as it has been given thumbs up. The shop is also famous with mostly Penang Hawker variety which recommended by most of the blogger.

Then so coincidently my friend from pg came down and known the chef of the café as she told me that they are good friend. Of course gladly I am taking them there which is not too hard to locate.

The shop is decorated in a very classic Nyonya style filled with wooden chair and marble tables which I rate it as a kopitiam style.

So our pesta makan starts.
‘Hokkien Char’ Filled with wok hei, yet pour in the sambal given just add in the extra taste. RM8

‘Char Koey Teow’ Me and my friend enjoying as it was fried to perfection, yet filled with si ham, and prawns. I would prefer if it was a bit more spicy. RM8
‘Otak Otak’ It is soft, with a big piece of fish chunk in the middle but I have eaten a better one. RM4
‘Ju Hu Char’ Was a complimentary by the chef to my friend, which we always take it and wrap with the veggie an eat. A bit sweet in taste but I prefer my grandma’s style which is abit salty.
‘Roast Pork with Garlic’ We enjoy this dish, which is quite a bit sweet and salty, yet the fats of the roast pork are just what we prefer. RM16
The ‘Lorbak Set’ ss one of their signature, is quite big in a roll, fried till crispy on the outer layer filled with meat but I prefer other stalls. RM8

‘Kerabu Mango’ Sweet and sour create sensation on our tongue which is one that I would recommend. RM8
‘Sotong KangKung’ It is quite watery after got served, which they did not dry out the kangkung enough, the shrimp paste have to be added in with some of the chili added to bring in the kick. If the shrimp paste is a bit thicker it would be even nicer. RM10

‘Sago gula Melaka’ RM 3.50 Find it too sweet with the floating layer of santan and thick layer of gula Melaka.
‘Mango Cendul’ Unique in the name which I have not tried before, but just not my taste which the mango doesn’t go along with cendul and gula Melaka. RM3.50
I would say that the service was prompt as the dad were seated next to us which is the cashier, and the dad got quite surprise that 3 person of us eating so much, which is me and another 2 girl.

As overall, I don think I know how to enjoy eating Nyonya food but I would surely return for the Penang Hawker food.

Remarks: please go there early to avoid disappointment which is the signature like Hokkien Mee and Curry mee already finish. Be there b4 8.30

Last weekend were shopping around then thought of eating Penang food and always go to Little Penang Café, then I just remembered on whose blog that I have read, giving good review on this restaurant, so fast fast ask them change place to Gurney Drive.

When I reached there, I am quite surprise to see the crowd as it is not many. Can count with your 5 fingers but then what the heck, just trust that person’s taste. Never try never know!

They also bring in the ‘Beca’ to add in more feel on it.

This is what I mean, seriously not many people. The were like only 4-6 stalls operating ~

Just love the cover of the menu. Take closed up, makes you feel like you are row row row your boat.
Then the manager came by to greet us and also to take up our order. The best part is, he also know how to speak HOKKIEN. Kaki lang ah~ friendly person~
As usual, drink order first, so I decided to order the special promo drink of the day. ‘Barley Ice’ RM 1 (usual price RM3.80). Just by looking at it is just a mere normal bali ais loh~ but when I get to drink it that time, I am just falling in love with the drink. Not sweet, rich with barley taste which I like it thick compare the one offer in the kopitiam which is quite diluted or sweet. Highly Recommend!

Penang food, which one of the famous food to crave for is ‘Penang Rojak’. The ‘Hae Ko’ just feel that it is lacking of some taste. Although the paste is quite sticky and thick but couldn’t tell what is it missing to make the extra umph in it~RM8.80

This ‘Loh Bak Set Big’ was this highly recommended by a blogger(which I forgot whom).The har peng is goring to crispy, which is very nice, loh bak – is rich with filling, when you even pick it up the compactness of the meat wouldn’t fall off easily. Goreng perfectly which doesn’t makes the skin over goring. Taufu and egg noting much to comment about as it taste normal. With the price RM16 which I thought pretty expensive, but turn out to be reasonable with the quality they are serving.

Usual hawker food which normally ppl wont miss is the ‘Char Koey Teow’. I was abit disappointed when it got served because of the portion. I said, fine dining meh~…plate so big, portion so small, then my friend kacau me, want me to take soy sauce and sambal to help you conteng to look more perfect boh… ??

But after trying out, you will be surprise of the taste. It was fried to perfect, with the wok hei is there, quite dry and spiciness lvl just ngam.. We had not enough of it. Just finish within seconds. Highly Recommended! RM8.80

As I always never miss one of my favourite ‘Curry Mee’, before with the chili paste was put in, the taste of the soup is pretty pale, and santan taste is just abit.

After putting in a spoonful of chili paste, the whole bowl had turn to fiery red and it is not even spicy at all, just the colour but the taste had changed. It taste much better but still not the best. RM 8.80

Next item not to be miss ‘Hokkien Mee’. The soup is quite rich in taste which is the most important thing in prawn mee. They gave generous amount of mee and bee hoon. It also comes with a few big pieces of prawns. With the charges of RM8.80 is pretty decent.

One of Penang signature is ‘Penang Laksa’. Turns out to be not the best of all. The soup is quite clear, not rich in taste and fish chunks or fish blended that mix in the soup. It wasn’t serve very warm. By adding in prawn paste just makes it taste weirder. Charging at RM8.80

When comes to Penang desert, ‘Ice Kacang’ would consider as one of the item must try out or order. In this restaurant, I would say just thumbs up for this. We seriously enjoy salivating it. Hard to come across a nice ice kacang which the most important is the ice was blended very soft. Perfectly on it. Overall, wasnt too sweet on it, just a great desert to close the meal with. Highly Recommended RM3.80 ONLY.
Next would be the ‘Teow Chew Cendol’. Again, the ice is soft, the gula melaka is not too sweet or they have just put the right amount on it and the santan feels like eating fresh. The coconut taste is there. I would just say, gone within 60 seconds. Also charge at RM 3.80
Overall, we are very satisfied with the food that they offer here which I feel it taste much better compare to Little Penang Cafe. Was just wondering after that, why the food is so nice, yet the ppl is so little. The pricing which I find it reasonable with the quality of food they are serving. Would surely come for second round.
Just feel that, they don have a QC in Char Koey Teow which we order the second plate, it doesnt taste nice at all compare to the first plate and also the amout of time we have waited is more than 20 minutes which we believe we are the only table ordering extra. Maybe the chef go and tangkap si ham.

After finishing the light meal that they serve, then was in luck that this gurls walk by, Egyptions Coco, Green Fairy Junn and Sexy Nurve – Yvonne.

With camera standing by and lots of flash flashing and my friend thought that how come there were so many media ppl in this event, then only get to realise that it belongs to most of the bloggers. The MC were guy cant remember and the gurl is JoJo. Pumping up the mood in there, I think they did a great job~
While I was eating half way, then saw a cow passby me, faster kidnap him to take pic. Then he ask me, you want to take more unique way I was like har? then he showed me the nen nen of the cow..Me directly squeezing hard to see can get some SUSU….

Then saw the Spartans walking past by to take drinks, and taking pic with Spartans with Boooze~
