LUNCH CROWD LUNCH CROWD[/caption] This second generation family-run restaurant serves good authentic Malay food. It’s totally unpretentious because while the restaurant has been around for many years it still preserves the same recipes which were used when they first started. Additionally, it’s probably one of the few restaurants (apart from fast food outlets & mamak stalls) where you can really experience the muhibah spirit because the clientele consists of a good balance of Malays and non-Malays (Penangfoodgalore).

Notice the Kerabu Mangga dish. Kerabu Mangga is an appetizer that must not be missed. I love the sourness and sweetness of the kerabu dressing which complements the freshness and crunchiness of fresh green mango, shallots, red chillies, beans and fried onions. It is a great dish to start a meal.

SHAM: Nothing has changed much at this restaurant, even the tables and chairs remain in the same arrangement since the mid-1980’s.
