Eating in Kuala Lumpur - Lunch at Little Penang Kafe
Little Penang Kafe is located at the top floor of the shopping mall where there are lots of other eating outlets. The decor is quite simple, a bit of old kopitiam touch here and there and that's about it. The menu has most of the typical Penang hawker dishes. I decided to order the Aromatic Five-Spice Chicken set which came with chicken stewed in dark soy sauce, asam prawns, ju hu char which is turnip stir-fried with carrots and strips of dried squid, and plain rice. It was really good ! The chicken was tender and flavourful, the five-spice taste just right and not too overpowering. The asam prawn was very appetizing and not too spicy, and the ju hu char made it a balanced meal.
For dessert I ordered the Ice Kacang which was also very nice. This is an iced dessert with a mixture of sweet corn, red beans, sea coconut in coconut milk and sweetened with palm sugar syrup. Delicious !
