Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul started all the way back in the 30’s when those days all the rich and noblemen were willing to stand by the road side just to wait for a bowl of chendul.

  • Nutmeg Ice Kacang – RM5.90, the same ingredients used for the original ice kacang, except for additional nutmeg floss and nutmeg syrup.

Compared to the original I prefer this nutmeg flavour as it was refreshing and delightful. This is my cup of tea.

Teochew Chendul

This is the famous and must-try dish when a person visits Penang, else you won’t be considered as been to Penang.

  • Durian – RM7.40, the ingredients are similar to the original flavour, the only difference is the kidney beans have been replaced with durian syrup.

The flavour of the durian is obvious for this bowl of chendul. The only thing is there is no texture in this bowl of chedul since kidney beans had been taken out. It would be perfect if it had been added with some glutinous rice.

Asam Laksa – RM7.40, The rice noodle covered with thick fish broth cooked with assam slices, topped with shredded fish and some slices of veggie, pineapple, cucumber, onion and mint leaves. Serving together is a spoonful of shrimp paste.

The laksa has the standard taste of laksa and it is great for those who don’t have time to taste the laksa from other stalls. This is the best alternative for you.

Kuang Jiang – rm5.20, A Teochew-style of snack made from fried glutinous cake. It is normally dipped into a slightly salty and spicy sauce. It is also packed with some peanuts and dried shrimp.

The snack has been deep fried until golden brown. The stickiness and the crispiness texture blended very well and the taste was great when served with the chili sauce. The only problem is the oiliness of the snack is too high, if the oiliness can be reduced then it will be perfect.

Chee Cheong Fun – RM5.20, this is a new item in the menu. The rice rolls have been cut into cubes, served with shrimp paste, topped with homemade chili paste and sprinkled with sesame seeds and some fried onion.

The curry mee soup had a strong aroma of coconut milk and the taste was quite strong. As for the chili paste the taste was also very nice too.

Overall, the taste of the food here is nice and it is located at a very convenient place. There are plenty of parking slots available in the mall. Dinning at Queens Hall at a slightly higher price is considered reasonable due to its ambience.
