One of the famous Tim Sum shop for breakfast in Penang. It has also been quite some time I did not visit this shop. Last visited was bout 5 years ago. As I have to bring my friend for breakfast, and decided to come back this shop as always mention by my dad how good it was as this shop is famous to all the nearby neighbourhood for quite long time already.
The shop is as usual packed with people from morning to night. As they have to different sessions. Morning will be the Tim Sum and Night will be the fried dish.
The troly being pulled infront of me, so get to choose what I want.
Ordered the ‘Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fan’ whereby a must have dish for Tim Sum, it was so so only as the skin is too thick already. We only finish the prawns.
The ‘Wu Tau’ as one of my favourite. But today I think the yam, do not have the yam taste, feels abit weird but the ‘char siew pork’ in there taste nice. Not too salty yet perfectly juicy. Just the yam. Aiii…
‘Fried Fu Chuk‘ is one of the favourite, it is nicely fried as the crust of the skin is very crispy and the filling in it is very soft like home made fish ball. The mayonnaise we believe is home made too, as it taste sweet and goes along very well with the fu chuk.
‘Loh Mai Kai’ a common food for tim sum. Looks nice and oily, the chicken and the mushroom in it do not have much taste but the taste still lack of one taste, the original loh mai kai taste. Still feel that the 1 that I had in Genting is very nice and highly recommended tim.
This is one of their signature dish. Do not know what it is called but in the whole pau trolly
this is the only odd colour looking, the auntie was selling hard on this. Decided to try it since she said its one of the best selling and the last piece.
I must agree with the auntie that this sure taste nice. The top is very soft like eating cake, and the filling inside is just nice, blend well with the top. Highly Recommended.
‘Char Siew Pau‘
my favourite during tim
sum. Very nice. The texture of the pau
is nice and soft, the char siew
inside is nicely fried along with the sauce.
I forgot what is this called already, by having me 1 person finishing the whole thing, taste quite good along with the cilisauce
there, i think they have mixed it, chili sauce with the ‘tim cheong
I personally do not like this but my friend she is having great time eating this. This depends on individual taste already
. So far still have not manage to find a nice 1 to eat during tim
sum. Would not really recommend this as the meat is nicely steam but the sauce do not have a strong black bean sauce,the chili taste lack of it, and lack of salt.
Round up the whole session with a desert. As always my meal will usually end with desert. The ‘Longan Tau Fu Fa’
. The pieces is very soft like taufu
, the juice in there is not too sweet, and top up with longan
. Just nice to complete the whole meal.
When I was paying the bill, I was quite shock again, as we ate so much and the total was only RM25. Aii, cheap loh~ With the food quality and the pricing so have not much comment on it. All the auntie there is very nice and warm.
They can just talk and talk to you and the auntie commented on my friend, ‘Wah, where r u guys from?Japan ah? then I laughed. Korea ah? you guys don look like local lei(in hokkein) you guys so fair. Then told the auntie, no la. We all ‘Pun Teh Lang’ (local ppl in hokkien)
