We had to save space for more food to chug on the trail, and here’s a small selection from the myriads available on the menu. If you want to go the extra mile, share your orders, so you get to taste & experience more dishes in one seating.
Peranakan culinary takes great pride in serving up fresh pound chilli, with belachan to give it more depth… Not for the faint hearted.
Otak Klasik – it’s not quite the otak we thought it to be. It was more chawanmushi than anything I can relate with. Delicious & effortless to polish off.
Penang Char Kway Teow – authentic as it gets, savory with thin sliced Chinese sausages & prawns. It’s a la carte, ask for cockles and specify doneness if you have preference.
Char Koay Kar – A signature from the northern states of Malaysia. Stir fried rice cake dices & cubes, in dark sweet soy sauce, with beansprouts & chaipoh, eggs & mild chili.
Iced Chendol – the red beans are huge, I almost mistook them for kidney beans. Lovely!
In terms of taste, bear in mind that this is Penang Peranakan, a tad different from the local and Melaka version that we’re accustomed to. By virtue of taste & variety, it’s worth revisiting.
