Time for dinner!!! We found this restaurant online from a blogger's recommendation. This wasn't in our original itinerary actually. At first, we were thinking of having a fine-dining, but at last we thought it would be a waste to not try out local restaurants which are Penang's "hidden gems"! Not only it is especially well-known to locals, but even foreign tourists too swam in to taste the goodness. Established in 1965, the restaurant business has now passed on to the 2nd generation and counting.

With fear of limited parking spaces, we parked our car a few streets away and walked over to the restaurant. To our surprise, the restaurant was indeed fully-packed with people, and we spotted some are lining-up to in order to get tables!

Fortunately, it was all under-controlled and organized. A staff is stationed to attend to waiting customers, assigning them to empty tables and taking orders in advance. Soon we got ourselves a table and our orders were sent into the kitchen (find the menu attached at the end of this post).

In less than 30 minutes, our foods are all served on the table. They smell really really good! Maybe I was very hungry then? Yes, most probably. But I gotta feeling that I'm gonna like this meal very much. Bon appetite! :9

Are you drooling already while seeing these photos? Well, undoubtedly, there was none of of them I didn't like it. Yes, I shouldn't deny that I actually enjoy Chinese cuisine very much. (I am a Chinese after all! :D)

Well, if I am to recommend to you, I would stir-fried five-spice marinated sliced pork and Assam stingray are highly recommended. The stir-friend pork is full of flavours. The stingray is cooked perfectly nice and tender. Mix the spicy and sour assam sauce with rice and fish meat, and it just goes into your mouth one after another scoop... One thing I like about stingray is because it doesn't have small pointy fish bones. Much easier to eat.

The total bill costs RM114.30, which is considerably worth-the-price for a 5-person dinner. It was truly an enjoyable dinner. The online recommendation was a reliable one (thumbs up!). Check out the recommendation link here.

So if you are interested to try out some good local restaurants, I suggest you shouldn't miss this one :)
