Penang Delight

Penang Delight Cafe 馬來檳城美食 on UrbanspoonA narrow restaurant that was jam packed with people lined up. Luckily, we had reservations, though we did have to wait about 10 minutes. The waiting area is extremely cramped and uncomfortable.

As we sat at our table, we were shocked to see the server at the other table pour some of the tea from their pot onto the table to ‘clean’ it after the dishes were cleared off.


Unfortunately, my seat was right where the AC was blowing at my forehead. It was unpleasant considering I was a bit sick with low fever that day. But even if I was well, I am not a fan of sitting in direct wind of ACs.

Roti Canai (crispy Indian style pancake served with curry dipping sauce) $5.95 I found the roti greasy and oily, though it did taste alright. I found it to be pricey for what you got.

The pieces were too large, and without knives provided, eating it was a bit of a challenge without making a mess. The chicken itself was nicely cooked, but the all the skin and fat is not my favourite part. The sauce did go well with it, but I thought the chicken itself could have had more seasoning to start of with.

I found the meat to be hard and dry. The Rendang beef from Banana Leaf is super soft, juicy and just melts in your mouth. It is soooo good! This in comparison was really bad. Hence, I mostly ate the potatoes from the curry chicken portion.

The bathroom was dirty and not taken care off. By the bathroom, there were food trays out in the hallways with food and old dishes. The service was mediocre. They weren’t happy but we did get our tea fills and food as expected.

I didn’t enjoy much from this restaurant so I don’t think I’ll be returning.
