Hock Seng Rojak @ Penang

Hock Seng Rojak, the self proclaimed Rojak King. The small white board under their signboard, they also boast that their Rojak is world no.1 taste! However, how many times had we seen that restaurants and stall claimed that they are the best but utterly failed in the end? This is not the case for Hock Seng Rojak.

Their Rojak is really really good. The prawn sauce is extremely thick. Besides, they add in not only peanuts but dried shrimps too, which make the rojak taste even better! However, I find it a bit too spicy when I ate it the 1st time, but slowly it become OK. 8.0/10

Sky Hotel Char Siew @ Penang

Sky hotel, such a nice name, but don’t be fooled by its name. Sky hotel is just a budget of the budget hotel, which is also some place I will never stay in it. No offense to those backpackers out there, but I will rather not to travel if you want me to stay in this type of place.

However, I am still here at Sky hotel located at Chulia street, just because of the famous Char Siew rice here.

When I ordered the Char Siew, I was asked, fat or lean, and I regretted very much by ordering the lean version. The Char Siew is good, but it’s too lean leading to not juicy enough. 7.0/10

Kheng Pin Loh Bak @ Penang

Loh bak is something that most Penangtie like to order when eating their main such as Hokkien Mee, Char Koay Teow, Curry Mee and many others. Loh Bak is actually marinated minced pork wrapped with bean-curd, but when people order, they will usually also order other such as fried beancurd, prawn fritters, century egg and many others.

However, these days, even in Penang, it’s quite hard to find really good Loh Bak, and luckily Kheng Pin Cafe at Penang road still able to maintain it’s standards after years. The variety here is quite a lot compare to others, and each piece is very crispy. Besides, the flour here is not overwhelming until you can only taste flour but not the meat itself. 7.7/10

Green House Hokkien Mee @ Penang

Green house Hokkien Mee, located at Burmah road, was regarded as one of the best Hokkien Mee by many Penangties. One of the specialty here is you can opt for many extra ingredients such as “pai kuat“, roasted pork and many others, which makes the Hokkien Mee more yuummy.

Not only the coffee shop was named Green House, but the Hokkien Mee stall is also in bright green color. However, to me, this bowl of Hokkien Mee is really so so only, really nothing to shout about despite it’s fame. However, can’t deny that the roasted pork here is good. 6.0/10
