Among all the dishes we ordered, here are the standout dishes I loved and you must try: 1. Penang style Rojak ($9): very very delicious rojak, you will get addicted to it. The rojak has Buah Long Long fruit, rose apple, mango, cucumber, pineapple, turnip, starfruit + secret weapon : crunchy fritters. 2. Appetizer platter, Belachan Chicken Wings + Loh Bak ($15): Must try! Super delicious and the chicken wings were so fragrant. I love loh bak and likewise, addictive 3. Assam Laksa ($10): unique flavour and the soup base is superb 4. Penang Char Kway Teow ($10): check out how they cook it in the wok in the video! 5. Seafood Mee Sua Kor ($11.80): Not many local eateries, if any, serve this Penang delicacy. My personal favourite if you like mee sua! 6. Curry Kapitan with Rice ($10): I have not heard this dish before! The curry tasted really unique. A must try! 7. Buah Long Long Juice ($6): this fruit in English is called great hog plum/June plum. Penang Kitchen’s version comes with no added sugar and is super refreshing.
