Lam Hong Thai Style Chicken Rice @ Penang

Chicken rice is a common sight in Malaysia, but Thai Style Chicken rice is something different. On one sight, the stall looks like just another chicken stall, but 1 might notice, eh, why is there some Thai Language on the signboard?

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

Besides, the red beans and jagung (sweet corn) toppings is good, and makes the “Ais kacang” just great! However, I find that the jelly (also homemade) is just so so. This plate of “Ais kacang” is way more satisfying than the famous Penang road Teowchew Cendol, simply because the standard here is consistent, unlike the Cendol sometimes taste good, sometimes bad.
