Another one of their signature range is their curry. So we ordered on their Curry Fish (sting Ray) @ RM 23, As I like how my Asam fish is sourness is stronger and after taste of it is a bit spicy at the end. Curry gravy is not too thick and to mix with your rice to eat along is just perfect~ – Recommended

One of my friend always dine here and he never miss this dish which is 3 steam egg. Different types of egg which is (century, duck and normal egg) to steam on it. A dish which is very simple, fragrant as just add on some garlic oil on top then add on some soy sauce, you will enjoy this simple dish alot~ @ RM 6

At Tek Sen, which is a restaurant that many of my friends love to dine and no doubt too that they have gain international popularity from a few types of magazine came by to feature them. A place to hunt if you are looking for nice homecook meal without disappointing.

On the set back about this place is there are very limited parking space available around the area and no matter during lunch or dinner its always super pack! It is advise to go early to enjoy full range of their food list as the later you went, there will be some dish sold out.

another recommended restaurant in Penang.

This lunch time I am really lost and my friend is heading towards Jalan Duta side and was asked to look around where got veggie shop to eat. They have been very nice accompanying me eating Vegetarian food for a few days already. So I found this shop and its on the way of stopping by.

This is the first vegetarian restaurant that I came across that served tim sum too.

The picture illustrated in the menu sure show’s a sign of their quality of food but don know got kena tipu a not.
I love their interior design, very very China feel with wooden chair and table carving designs.
Then we were served with this Enzime as what my friend call. Something very sour and a weird taste but some of them are alright with it. Some of them like yewwwww….
‘Crispy Seaweed Slice’ RM2.50 was served upon with the drink and this thing was gone in minutes. A bit crispy yet have the taste of seaweed.
Then we were given this rice. I don know what it is called.
We order a ‘Set Lunch D’ and it served with ‘Curry Mutton’ with mild curry and the potato taste perfect but the mutton curry doesnt taste anything close to mutton. Would say more like a meat ball.
‘Soup of the Day’ nothing to comment on.
‘Mix Vegetable’ at least it was friend to perfection that manage to preserve the freshness of the vegetable. Mild in taste but I have no complain.
‘Fried Fish Soup + Black Bean Sauce’ is nothing near to what it has describe.Cant really taste the black bean and the fried fish is not really fried.
‘Sweet and Sour Meat’ is also not anything near what it has been describe. The meat that was fried taste and chew more like a fried sotong.
At the end of the lunch they were still not full and ordered the ‘Tim Sum’ as having promotion 30% and after the % it charge at RM15.75. The taste of course cannot compare to the real taste as we usually eat. Only 1 word. Okay lah~
At night I was around that area too and look on the internet and according to the address given, there is not such shop that were printed on my paper. Then only head back to this restaurant.
We order something simple and fast ‘Fish Head Bee Hoon’ which the ginger taste over power most of the ingredient in there but at least 50% same compare to the 1 I dine at Kuchai Lama. RM8
I add on ‘Fried Goose’ which this is the first shop I came accross that sell this. I seldom miss this only in KL its hard to find. Well, its served very thin layer of the fu chuk yet quite oily. RM10
My friend order ‘Tom Yam’ which we felt it taste quite weird. Then only realise that the pineapple that taste weird had spoild the soup base. RM8
