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
The Siu Yok aka roasted pork here is goodie stuff. The skin is crispy and taste nice. 8.0/10
The lap cheong here is really awesome stuff. The inner part of the meat is very juicy and tender, which is different from others where it’s usually hard. Although many people had said the char siew and siu yok here is nice, but I personally find that the lap cheong is the Must Order stuff here. 8.5/10
The “yao choy sam” here is something worth to mentioned too. It was steamed nicely, and definitely something need to order to cope with all the fat meaty stuff up there. 8.0/10
Sky hotel Wai Kee serve really nice Char Siew and Siu Yok here in Penang. Besides, it’s also known to many Penangties that the best Char Siew and Siu Yok is here, so do come earlier before 12pm to avoid the huge crowd here especially after 12pm.
Time for some grandma stories of mine when I ate there. we actually forget to pay and left the restaurant after finish eating. We was not stopped by the worker there as seems they didn’t notice someone trying to eat for free there. It was until after we left and on the way going home, I asked my mum, how much total now ar? She stunned for a second and say, eh……We didn’t pay! We then U-turn backed and pay, but the funny thing is it seems they also forget what we ordered and we did not pay. The worker keep on saying thank you to us for coming back and pay. :p
